Inglourious(sic) Basterds(sic)
There is a teaser trailer up now for Quentin Tarantino's World War II Jews-butchering-Nazis film Inglourious Basterds (misspelling intentional, or so I'm told).

I'm a Tarantino fan, and I don't care who knows it, and I think this film looks like a whole bunch of fun. So there!

Why is it spelt like that?

Re: Inglourious(sic) Basterds(sic)
I have no idea. If I had to guess, I'd say that somebody in the film dubs the group the "inglorious bastards", but then when someone decides to write it on the side of their truck, they mess it up. Due to a lack of education, I would think.

I like the spelling, for some reason. It could easily be a piece of the dreaded Whimsy, or Quirkiness, but it seems instead to be one of those odd features that invests a creative project with a kind of integrity, before you even know the first thing about it. Not sure why that is.

First review I've seen, and it ain't good.

I've seen quite a few bad reviews stateside but I'm still going to go watch it.

Bradshaw's been busy. This, the Lars von Trier, the new Almodovar.

Lucky man.

Yeah. Jammy git.

The Von Trier looks really interesting, though I never know what to make of him.

Third Man, what other reviews have you seen?

I didn't read the Guardian review, because I want to avoid spoilers, and it's often been my experience that when a critic doesn't like a film they figure it's fair game to ruin it for everyone.

Maybe I'll agree with the guy, and maybe I won't (I hope not), but Tarantino gets as many bad reviews as good these days. And I love the Kill Bill films, which got a very mixed reaction.

Re: Inglourious(sic) Basterds(sic)
To be fair, bill, Bradshaw says at the end of the review that he wishes it was like Kill Bill.
