With apologies to ‘Destiny Turns On The Radio’.
Widely considered the most beloved nation on Earth, France has been the setting of countless movies. In stark contrast to that, let's count out five of them. These movies not…
Instead of the Battleship film, why didn’t someone sack up and make ‘Nation’s Pride’?
I sat down this weekend to watch Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds again, and while I thoroughly enjoyed it the first time around, I have to say the second time made me love it on a whole new level. Maybe it's because in between chapters I could pause to get a snack, check my email, or shout at the people loitering outside my window. Whatever it was, the film was ultimately more enjoyable. It's even perfectly structured for these kind of A.D.D. breaks. You can watch a self-contained segment, do your thing, and then return to the movie with a full stomach and/or an empty bladder.You can read the original review of the film here, and check out my review of the Inglourious Basterds Special Edition 2-Disc DVD after the jump.
Just about everybody enjoys watching a goose-stepping kraut get his head blown off… Whites & blacks, Christians and Jews, liberals and conservatives; hell, even hardcore racists can find things to hate about the tenets of National Socialism (although say what you will, at least it’s an ethos).So, in honor of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, we here at Screen Junkies have complied the Top Ten Nazi Killing Movies of all time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this list of films that are guaranteed to put those filthy Huns where they belong: in the ground.
CLICK ON PHOTO TO SEE COMICPlayboy and Quentin Tarantino have teamed up to create a comic strip adaptation of a scene from Inglourious Basterds with reports that the director hand-picked and edited the piece. Here's the scene in the director's own words, "Okay, so. The Basterds come upon this Nazi and he's like this real bad Von Trapp-hating motherf&*%er, y'know? So. And then Brad Pitt's all like, 'Listen David Hasslehoff. I's Aldo Raines and I didn't come all the way to Germany for the strudel. We's in the Natzi-killin' business and we's here for your scalp. Today the hills ain't alive with the sound of music, Colonel Clink-looking motherf%$^ker. They's alive with the sound of killin'.' So. Y'know? (*pause; grows quiet*) May I have another Orangina please, Scott?"SIDENOTE: It wasn't until just now that I realized comic book Brad Pitt closely resembles loveable drunkard Andy Capp. And enjoy these glourious morning links…Get your tickets for Avatar's sneak peek.

Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds. You have to think the movie would make Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen-amounts of money if every moviegoer were Jewish and an action movie aficionado. While we at Screen Junkies are decidedly action movie lovers, we are also mostly of the gentile persuasion. So, while we already have our Basterds tickets for opening weekend, we fully appreciate how gratifying the film might be all the more gratifying for someone whose family had to actually endure the atrocities of the Nazis. The idea of hearing a Jewish perspective on a movie that centers on Jews brutally killing a bunch of people who brutally killed Jews always had an interesting ring to it. Luckily for us, our friends at Heeb Magazine read our minds, and passed writer Oliver Noble's review of the flick on to us for a gander. As you can see from the beginning of Noble's piece, Tarantino seems to have nailed his key demo:
Quentin Tarantino’s WW2 opus Inglourious Basterds dropped at Cannes last night, and was met with mixed reviews. Lots of folks loved it, but we heard it through the grapevine (the grapevine being our friends at Pajiba), that some snooty type from The Guardian called it "Cannes' Turkey." And while they haven't commented yet, we're sure the Nazi Film Critics Society pooped all over it. They hate everything but Mel Gibson movies.

And then watch the other two after the jump.
Well, another day, another Inglourious Basterds poster featuring another cast member being labeled a "Basterd." This time it's Diane Kruger… but we didn't want to use that as our main image, because we're feeling whimsical today. So here's a fake poster from our fantasy version of inglourious Basterds, in which a youthful Gary Coleman takes on the Nazis. Whatchutalkin'bout, Hitler?!See the real Diane Kruger poster (and the others released at this point) after the jump.
