No cuts for Basterds

Jun. 29, 2009by: Mike Sampson

Quentin Tarantino cutting INGLORIOUS BASTERDS for American theaters? "No fucking way!," says Harvey Weinstein. One half of the Weinsteins behind the film's US distributor told GQ that the stories of 40-minutes being cut from BASTERDS are "all untrue" and "nuts." He even goes on to insinuate that Sharon Waxman, the writer who first reported about the cuts, as an "insane blogger" (though is "insane" referring to her mental stability or her skillz as a blogger?).

Says Hahvulah, "I was telling Quentin the opposite—'You should put that shit back in the movie.' There’s scenes with Brad Pitt and the Basterds, and I’m praying he puts that shit back in, ‘cause it’s un-fucking-believably great. Listen—this movie will be between two hours and twenty minutes and two hours and twenty-seven minutes. I don’t think it’s going to be shorter—it’s just a question of rearranging."

So there. And if what is said above is true, and given Mr. Weinstein's, um, passionate assertion we'll just assume that it is, that would make the theatrical cut only a few minutes shorter than what was shown in Cannes. Rearranging people. That's all.

Extra Tidbit: And if you've got something to say about, Harvey can also make sure your face is rearranged.

hummm...

Gotta say that's an awesome poster. I still think this movie will be better than his last one. Oh yeah, I sat on theater thru the whole "Grindhouse" film and I plan do the same with this one...

Rearrangement?

The Weinsteins' problem is not Harvey's rearrangement of movies, it's his rearrangement (or complete lack of) release dates. See "Fan Boys", "Kill Shot" or "Zack and Miri" for good examples.

This movie will be better than half the crap thats already come out this summer. To many people rely on special effects in action movies instead of old school shootouts and it's bull crap.

What Harv meant to say is that they focused grouped it and people didn't like the Nazis so they took them out. But then the Fanboys started complaining so they put them back in.
