Thanks, Ify. That made me feel good
Since the day I’ve been hearing about QT describing the script as the best thing he’s ever written, I’ve always kinda had an image in my head as this being the Unforgiven of war movies. The other script reviews made it sound awesome, sure, but also sounded like he was continuing on the path of Kill Bill, making a homage-filled exercise in genre-sampling. While that would sure be interesting too, after KB and Death Proof I want him to make a serious movie. You expressed exactly what I wanted to hear at this point. Bring on a another masterpiece, Q!
But remember, I have only read a few excerpts. I have also whizzed through a bit of the descriptions he has written, but so far I have seen nothing to suggest an “homage-filled exercise in genre-sampling” as you so brilliantly put it. The tone, from what I have read, seems more akin to that of Eastwoods recent masterpeices, Munich, Schindler’s List mixed in with some Scorsese.
Perhaps somebody who has read more can confirm this.
Also, I noticed that he spells “bastards” as “basterds” throughout, even when not referring to the “Inglorious Bastards” which to me suggests QT just doesn’t know how to spell the word and not what was hinted at in another thread that the “Inglorious Bastards” are actually “Inglorious Basterds”
Didn’t expect to see this guy to show up in the script!
As well as his good ol’ superior!
We’ve GOT to create some sort of countdown for the casting news!
I already heard about Goebbels, but I was also surprised to see Hitler in there. I wonder who will play him.
This is shaping up to be a pretty insane film.
