Inglorious Bastards now?

06.03.2008

Defying all of the odds, apparently, Quentin Tarantino is going to start preproduction on INGLORIOUS BASTARDS as soon as possible. Possibly right now. Probably as we speak:

[At this] weekend’s Rolling Roadshow “Leone Edition” in Almeria, Spain, Quentin was said to attend and introduce The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, but according to the organizers, he has in fact “cancelled and will not be introducing the shows. He has cleared all appearances to begin preproduction on his new feature, INGLORIOUS BASTARDS."

I guess that if true, that is a pretty strong statement that the film is really happening now. There's still time for him to decide that there are more pressing matters, like THE VEGA BROTHERS, or another exploitation flick, or a major cocaine bender, but yeah, it looks like we can start getting excited. So, ready? Go! Be excited!

Extra Tidbit: I don't think I've ever ranted about anything here, but here comes my first: why is every halfway violent film compared to Tarantino's work? I'm looking at my copy of A BITTERSWEET LIFE, and it says on the cover "makes Tarantino look like a rank amateur". What the hell does this film have to do with Tarantino? It's the same with stuff like THE BOONDOCK SAINTS or OLDBOY; I see it all the time and it grinds my gears. Is that just me?

Remember the DVD cover to Running Scared and how it said "Makes Kill Bill look like Sesame Street"? What total BS. It grinds my gears as well to hear people downplay Tarantino when comparing his films to others, especially when the films aren't even similar.

im with you on the whole comparison thing. Everybody ranks with Tarantino, and just because he has his own style doesn't mean everyone is just whoring it.

GOD PLEASE!!!!

I want this movie more than a BJ from Charlize Theron!! Q.T. is by far my favorite director and I think this could be his Apocolypse Now!!! Let's just hope Michael Madsen doesn't have a heart attack during filming!!!
I want Daniel Day Lewis in this by the way. DDL would kick Tarantino's dialouge in the nutsack so hard it would knock it throught the roof of its own mouth. Give me some old school Sam Jackson, and Bruce Willis. Finally has anybody heard anymore on the Sandman and all the 80's

I know the Sandman is making the Apatow comedy but I think he would be the balls in this!

Finally...

Glad to see he's finally getting his shit together and getting it done. I read the premise of the movie and I think it's a pretty great idea for Tarantino to tackle. I like The Vega Bros. Idea too but I think it's gonna be too little too late as Travolta and Madsen are getting up there in age, unless he plans to use new actors which i'd hope not.

Well, it's about time Quentin got off his butt and made this movie, I was getting a little tired of his grindhouse homage flicks anyway. As for the tidbit about BOONDOCK SAINTS, that was nothing more than a half-baked, Tarantino wanna be anyway.

I've grown tired of this douche bag, alright?

I hope his name isn't on the cover of any more Asian films, alright?

Alright? Alright?

Mergh. . .

It would really suck to be compared to Tarantino, for he is, kiddies, a one-trick pony.

The only Tarantino film I liked was Kill Bill II, and not that so much.

Let's throw as much gore as we can into a film and fly a few thousand fucks about the joint, give a 70s nod or two, and WHOA, Nellie! it's a golden masterpiece because Tarantino did it!

Please.

And I love the "D.B. Cooper" reference there. Give back the dough, man!

I'm with you James, since when did Tarantino become the benchmark for which all violent movies must adhere to? Where do you think Tarantino got his inspiration from Kurosawa that's what.However, put Kurosawa on the box and brainless idiots won't buy into it cos they won't know who the fuck Kurosawa is and mention Tarantino they will immediately think it will be EXACTLY like Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction and the like. Marketing James, marketing

Note - I still love Tarantino and am pretty

Yeah right!

I just hate the comparisonn to BOONDOCK SAINTS which is nothing more than a witless (Ooooo, lets put Defoe in a dress! Cool!) subpar ripoff on anything and all Tarantino. Instead check out the documentary OVERNIGHT which shows how much a true douchebag Troy Duffy is!

Thank You

Finally I hear someone address the Tarantino comparisons.

My Oldboy blu-ray says "Comes with the Tarantino seal of approval" on the cover and Roger Ebert's 4-stars on the back. What the hell is that?

I don't give a damn if Tarantino 'approved' the movie or not, I loved it. Quentin is not a God, he's just good at making his flavor of films.

compare this !!

you are right on...nothing grinds my gears more than some shit sci fi flick thats compared yet again to Blade Runner, and it's never even close to that classic. Boondock Saints is a cool flick, although i'd never compare it to Tarantino.

The other thing is a-hole reviewers, who routinely have their words printed on the dvd cover, and they are waaayyyy off. My girlfriend wanted to see some crappy dvd that was about a death at a funeral, the box screaming hoe insanely funny this movie was, so

one laugh, only. that reviewer should be kicked square in the nuts.

It makes sense to compare to Tarantino because everyone knows and/or thinks of Tarantino when it comes to violent movies whether you have actually seen his movies are not.

Though its still annoying

Vega Brothers seems like a lost cause as a film. Tarantino should look into comics. Ever since Freddy vs Jason vs Ash (which wasnt great but just ok)was put to comics I see lots more abandoned projects becoming stories in some way.

good tidbit...

particularly since the boondock saints totally blows, and it's probably the asinine director whose comparing himself to Tarantino. Now, people who want to compare their own physical appearance to Tarantino's, I'm all for that, as long as they are posting pictures of their messed up skulls in the process.
