Basterds prequal cast?

I’ve happen to have seen this movie 2 times and don’t read reviews for every possible movie out there… Those were my words

Well, then you should sign up right away to be a critic.

I will then :smiley: That’s my hobby anyway

I’ll bet you’re just great and coming up with great little slogans that marketing people can put on posters.

I just can’t get into this. It’s like when I got all happy about QT possibly doing a 3D porn movie… just, until it’s confirmed, I’m not going to think about it.

Yeah this isn’t happening I don’t think. He says it depends on how big the first one opens but THAT depends on his expectations. It will do better than Death Proof but i doubt it will be that good.





Anyways just for kicks,



I think Jeffrey Wright is an extremely underrated African-American actor, he should be good in a Tarantino film.



Who else…Sam Jackson of course should be the lead, the man hasn’t had a really good film since Jackie Brown…



Chiwetel Ejiofor



The RZA



Djimon Hounsou



Eddie Murphy (but it would have to be in a super uncharacteristic Eddie Murphy role which Murphy will certainly turn down because of his kids so I guess not)



Tony Todd (the dude who played Candyman…would be sick in a Tarantino film)



Yaphet Kotto (dude who played the lieutenant in Midnight Run…would be sick in a Tarantino film as the big intimidating one)



Marlon Wayans (who proved he can act in Requiem for a Dream)



and no to the following



Denzel playing Denzel (F.W. you and I got lots in common btw)

Forest Whitaker who really isn’t that good of an actor but who knows and

Michael Clarke Duncan who definitely is not that good of an actor.

YOU liked Requiem For A Dream?

LOL! I was thinking the same thing, cept I couldn’t phrase it right.

It’s just that Stiglitz and I share opinions but I guess not in this case.



I’d rather watch 90s anti-marijuana ads than Requiem for a Dream.

I have never seen Requiem for a Dream. Is it a “teenie” movie? Someone liked a movie with Marlon in it?

It’s just a lame film that tries too hard to be intellectual but feels in the end like a badly directed music video. The use of editing tricks and effects in that film was like what every teenager who makes a short film thinks accurately portrays what being high is like.

I just watched the trailer on youtube, and that damn thing look like 500 other movies released in the 2000s.

Yeah. What’s funny is that I wanted to see this flick BECAUSE OF Marlon… I thought he was cute back in the day. I could barely sit through it.

Aw, you had a crush on a Wayan brother.

If a prequal gets the go ahead, who should be cast as the group of african-american soldiers who meet up with the Basterds?



I havnt given it much thought but i think DENZEL WASHINGTON would be awesome as the groups LT!



what does everyone else think? ::slight_smile:

I think Terrence Howard is without a doubt the most talented African American actor at the moment, even in the lesser roles, the man has great range in his pictures. Denzel Washington always plays the nicely dressed guy with a badass edge, there’s nothing wrong with that, but I’d like to see him tackle on diverse roles. And if there is a prequel to Basterds I imagine it will take place in the Japanese theatre. I personally think it would be a bit of a bad idea to expand on this film and cast all African Americans as leads. I mean there are only a handful of good Afro-American actors out there: Foxx, Washington, Howard, Jackson. I’d like to see something like Jackie Brown again, where he returns with his dialogue and makes it all about the characters again, I love that side of him and we only saw a glimpse of it on Jackie Brown.



He could do like some “Ivory Ghetto” drama with someone like Blanchett for the lead. But that’s not what Tarantino does - I guess. QT is really one of the best dialogue writers since - well let’s just say if he was an American Playwright, he’d be one of the best of our generation, he’s that fucking good and some people forget that.

Yeah, that’s because these 500 other movies were just trying to replicate Requiem for a dream. I think it’s one of the best movies of the last decade. Definitely in my top 10 of all times…

Ohh and the score is a masterpiece in itself… If not the best score ever for an american movie…

Wow, I never knew people hated Requiem For A Dream?



I thought it was a very depressing film, and I’m surprised how the movie was received when it came out, Aronofsky is really one of the most underrated filmmakers of our generation. Just look at The Fountain with Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz, that movie had a very complex structure, but overall you understnad the film in the latter viewings, and not to mention the performances he got out of Jackman, the man was really incredible in that film. And by god, he found something in Mickey Rourke that no other person could find. Hee knows casting, and that’s a tremendous attribute to have as a filmmaker.

Req’s score is SHIT, it’s so overused everywhere I’m sick of it, like physically sick of it. Unluckily enough it’s one of the most repitative music ever made for a movie. God I’m so tired of hearing it I can’t phrase it. Requiem for a dream is such an overrated well-minded message movie. I actually liked it when I saw the year it came out on DVD. Now it’s one of those films that prove most people are wrong because most people like it.



And if you don’t agree with the last sentence, replace people by teenagers.



Really Bio? Aronofsky’s underrated? Maybe you’re right for the Fountain, but for Requiem for a dream, you should think again. For once I agree with everything F.W. said about it.

It was a surrealistic experience, but it’s written in the lifes of drug addicts, these guys live to get high, in fact the whole film is about the direction that these people take and the end result is tragic. I didn’t love it, but I liked it. I prefer movies that aren’t too fancy with camera work, I like it when it’s character driven, directors like Joe Mankiewicz, Elia Kazan, Clarence Brown, PT Anderson - among those lines. But after seeing The Wrestler Darren proved he can be a great director without the fancy camera work. He’s a fine filmmaker and writer, let’s leave it at that.

You know, I bump into people like this every other Friday as I’m waiting for the “grindhouse” double feature to start at the local art house. They usually play a series of either Foreign or other independent features or short films before the double bill starts and on my in I run into beret wearing onion heads who are more than willing to sit there and tell you why QT, Aronofsky, PTA, Guy Ritchie, Luc Besson, RR, ect. all suck and aren’t worth 1 minute of their time. Sometimes I just want to watch Mean Streets and Resevoir dogs back to back on the big screen without even having to look at these people.



Req. for a dream is a pretty damn depressing flick. I remember watching that in theaters and just getting this feeling of dread the entire time. Say what you want about Aronofsky but he’s made some great films. I’m glad he got some shine with The Wrestler because it was a low budget movie.



Req. score is SHIT now because people jacked it directly from Requiem for a Dream. Lux Aeterna has become a track that other films scores lifted from in order to try to achieve the same kind of emotional effect Req. had. Why blame it ont he original? I don’t understand.
