This ain't your typical World War II movie! Two brand new 30-second TV spots for Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds have popped up online today and can be seen below. I'm trying my hardest to keep the buzz strong for Basterds. Even though it may not be the movie most people are probably expecting to see, it's still a great movie, and I hope people take a liking to it. Tarantino needs some time in the spotlight again and this time he certainly deserves it. As in, where Grindhouse failed in 2007, I hope Inglourious Basterds succeeds. The more advertising I see for this, the more I can't wait to see it again! Check ’em out.
Watch the first TV spot for Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds:
Watch the second TV spot for Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds:
During World War II, a group of Jewish-American soldiers known as "the Basterds" are chosen to spread fear throughout the Third Reich by scalping and brutally killing Nazis. The Basterds soon cross paths with a young French girl named Shosanna who runs a movie theater in Paris that is frequented by soldiers.
Inglourious Basterds is both written and directed by the infamous Quentin Tarantino, of everything from Reservoir Dogs to Pulp Fiction to Kill Bill to Death Proof previously. The Weinstein Company and Universal have partnered to bring us Tarantino's WWII masterpiece in all of its brilliant glory. After first debuting at the Cannes Film Festival, Inglourious Basterds will now hit theaters worldwide on August 21st this year.

Brad Pitt's accent keeps getting worse and worse!

Can't wait to see this. I don't know why, but I don't like Brad Pitt in this one..

#1: You Basterd. Pitt's accent is perfect. He's a hillbilly (people who talk that way to). Never worry about the way Tarantino's characters talk. He loves to hear them, and wants it to be perfect; so is Brad Pitt's voice in this movie, so don't talk if you don't know what you're talking about.

Brad Pitt bores me nowadays...not expecting much from this flick.

...guess people aren't getting that this movie is SUPPOSED to be absurd. The accents, the violence, the Hitler-tantrums are meant to be crazy. Enjoy it for the caricatures.

Wow... I think this movie looks awesome! And sure, Pitt's accent is pretty thick... But, I've met people with worse (and it was the way they really talked). Can't people just enjoy a movie? Better yet, all you naysayers just don't watch this. I'll enjoy it. And I'll take my friends and family. We'll enjoy it. You sit at home, and complain about whatever else makes you cranky. The rest of us will have fun, and find stuff to enjoy, instead of being miserable.

#6 is right. Have you people never seen a Tarantino movie?

Any and all hype surrounding this movie will hurt it. What I hear and read doesn't match up with what I'm seeing in footage. I have a feeling a lot of casual movie goers -- people who don't understand Tarantino's intent -- will be disappointed.

#7 I can name one movie accent that is worse, Gerard Butler trying to be American in The Ugly Truth. Throughout the entire trailer u can c that he's trying to keep it up but it keeps fluctuating from American to Scottish and back again.

S on Jul 17, 2009
Ketchup on pizza are fuckin kidding me? Almost just puked by the thought but more on topic I was really really hoping this to be a nazi killing fest but looks like it wont be...still be seeing it though just cause its Tarantino.
