Tarantino introduces new Inglourious Basterds clip
There's a new Inglourious Basterds clip online with Quentin Tarantino introducing it and telling us what it's all about. It's an okay clip, nothing overly special, but it does look good and pretty stylish to boot.
However it does feel like the characters are taking the whole thing pretty lightly and there's not really going to be much of a feeling of dread and danger in it for them.
Over in Cannes the media and the industry types are going mad for this film, and it'll be interesting to see what happens when it comes to the film being seen in public, and an audience that isn't all over Quentin Tarantino like he's the saviour of cinema.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not someone who hates his work, in fact I am probably one of the few who really did enjoy Death Proof (Filmstalker review) for example. It's just that he's treated as though every single film is like nothing else we've ever seen, and as Stephen said from my work the other day, he just steals from ever other film.
Well I do think Stephen was being a bit harsh there, he's not stealing, but he is heavily influenced and we have seen a lot of it before, usually just not in the one film.
