[quote]ToothPicVega what about the sake of the movie being cool? wouldnt u want to see Sam Jackson torching a room full of Nazis with a flamethrower set to “American Badass”? Or the opening shot to be the Platoon destroying a nazi base set to AC/DC “back in black” As far as time period now ToothPicVega is all historically accurate on me! In the GB forum he says Tarantino doesnt have to make WWII a major factor! If WWII isnt a factor and is just the “backdrop”(toothpicvega quote) then why the hell cant Tarantino pick his own music?! do u think Tarantino will play freakin Frank Sinatra as Soldiers are blown to pieces? I understand ur argument of historical music working in a movie (Goodfellas) but yet Glourious Bastards seems to just be a fun men on a mission movie so i support my cry for 80s and 90s rock blasting during Tarantino’s war story.
I dont think your operating on all cylinders Pulp. Kid Rock’s American Badass?!! What the fu-???!! Kid fuckin Rock? HAHAHAHAHA!!!
QT will most likely not use any pop music in Bastards. Like I said, its going to be a regular movie score.
BECAUSE THE FILM TAKES PLACE IN GERMANY IN THE 1940s!! What does any of the pop music from the latter part of the century have to do with WW2? It just doesnt fit, no matter how you twist it, it just aint right.
Just think about it: Your watching a World War 2 film, a bunch of guys who were probably born in the early 1900s are fighting a group of Nazi’s or whatever, then all of a sudden the beginning beats to Walk Like an Egyptian start playing on the soundtrack, wouldn’t you be like: WHAT THE FUCK?!! THIS IS 1940s not 1986!!! I would. The retro music works in a contemporary film, like in Dogs, Pulp or Jackie, but you can’t put new music in an older era film. It just doesnt fit that time period. The world was a much different place.
Noone said when QT started directing that he had to put a pop music soundtrack in every film he makes. Its not always necessary. You gotta expand your mind and stop thinking inside a box dude. Just look at KILL BILL, QT has RZA and Lars working on a score for that too. I think this film will be a step in a new direction in that area.
