Trailer Watch: Inglorious Basterds
Uh oh, another grimy, inauthentic Brad Pitt accent. I also don't care much for the trailer's assumption that: "You've never seen war till you've seen it through the eyes of Quentin Tarantino". Last time I checked, Tarantino knows nothing about war that he hasn't learned from exploitation films. That being said, there is a certain careless whimsy in Tarantino films that can be intoxicating, and that seems very present here. It could easily be Tarantino's worst film, but I guess we'll see. Tarantino's vision never lent itself toward trailers, but more toward the big screen.
