Inglourious Basterds Trailer



If you want to be a serious director, there comes a time when you have to make a movie about Nazis. We can all trust Quentin Tarantino to do his in a tasteful and historically accurate manner, I'm sure.

Above is the trailer for Inglourious "Not A Spelling Error" Basterds, and as someone who's loved a lot more Tarantino than he's hated, I'm quite willing to say: hell, yes.

Oh my...

That looks... awesome.

Was Brad Pitt channeling a bit of Fight Club there, as well?

That was Brad Pitt channelling Brad Pitt. The man's never convinced me that he's anyone other than who he is, but he almost always manages to entertain regardless.

That is the dullest trailer I've seen in a long t-zzzzzzzzz...



Sorry, fell asleep from the boredom of watching the trailer. What the hell went wrong with it? Tarantino usually cuts a good trailer.

This is the man who posts monologues on his blog, and he can't get excited by Brad Pitt telling us how he's going to kill some Nazis? Poor show.

I love this sort of trailer. It doesn't fake us out with the best of the action or the best of the special effects. It just says, "Here's a chunk of the writing and the acting. And if you like this, come see the film for more." It's the same way The Devil Wears Prada sold me and I wish more trailers were like this.
