Tarantino Makes a Better Spokesperson than Eli Roth

While Inglorious Basterds delights and revels in things I think most human beings should find repugnant, I’m going all apologist after viewing the “Jail Break” clip below. Between the irreverent entry and playful zing of Brad Pitt’s introduction of the Basterds to the legendary Ennio Marricone’s bouncy score, it’s hard not to feel a little twinge of fun, film-geek anticipation at Quentin Tarantino’s deft play for attention.

Tarantino– you bastalonie. Fire Roth as your spokesperson, because now I’m listening.

For the dependably animated and peppy introduction of the following clip by Tarantino himself, head over to Yahoo! Movies right here and view a few more clips released a few days ago.

  • Even though this film is getting panned by the majority of the critics at Cannes, IB is one of my highly anticipated films not only of the summer, but of the year. Really looking forward to seeing this one.

  • I agree and I’m surprised thus far at the negativity on major blogs, as well as the mixed reaction out of Cannes. From what I read, Time’s Richard Corliss was ho-hum, and the same with Variety, while The Hollywood Reporter and the LA Times Kenneth Turan were all largely negative. I guess we’ll wait and see.

  • According to RottenTomatoes.com, it’s got a 57% fresh rating, with 14 reviews divided eight to six in favor of the positive.
