Report: Quentin Tarantino admits he won’t win Oscar for Best Director, and predicts Kathryn Bigelow will win it instead…

Tarantino, speaks out his prediction for the Oscars. Tarantino says he has a very good chance in winning an Oscar for “Best Screenplay” or “Best Picture”, but he says he definitely won’t get one for “Best Director”. He thinks the “Best Director” award will go straight to Kathryn Bigelow, director of the war film, “The Hurt Locker”.


I actually agree with Tarantino’s prediction but I have this bad feeling that James Cameron will wind up getting everything again like he did for “Titanic”. I know a lot of people don’t want to see it happening, but sad to say, it probably will be James Cameron’s year again.

I hope Kathryn wins for “Best Director” or even better “Best Picture”, ’cause “The Hurt Locker” in my opinion, is the best film out of all the “Best Picture” nominations.


Thought: 82nd Annual Oscars 2010, will that be James Cameron’s year???

For the 82nd Annual Oscar Awards in 2010, we all know there will be 10 films nominated instead of the usual 5 this year. I know it’s too early to predict what the nominations will be for the 10 films. I don’t know what films will get nominated but we all know that Jimmy Cameron’s “Avatar” and Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” will make it in.

Who knows, maybe even Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” will get a nomination for “Best Picture” as well.

I have this feeling that this will be another year for Jimmy Cameron at the Oscars, again. “Avatar” will sweep everything at the Oscars.

I know a lot of people are hoping Tarantino will get his first shot at winning an Oscar but don’t get too excited yet. Jimmy Cameron is back on the big screen, so he’ll overshadow everything at the Oscars.

Don’t get me wrong, I think “Avatar” looks like a wonderful film, I’m dying to see it myself and can’t wait for it, but I don’t want Jimmy Cameron to win big again.

It is time to pass the torch to Tarantino, he deserves his chance, he’ll get nominated for sure, but it’s unlikely he’ll win. 😦


Film Review: Inglourious Basterds

Directed by: Quentin Tarantino

Starring: Brad Pitt, Mike Myers, Eli Roth, BJ Novak, and many more.

Just saw “Inglourious Basterds” today, the new Quentin Tarantino movie. I wasn’t very excited to see this flick but since I’m a huge fan of Tarantino’s older movies, that’s the reason it made me want to check it out anyways.

Here is my review:

Plot/synopsis: Quentin Tarantino is finally back on the big screen with his vision on WWII and Nazis. A team of Jewish-American soldiers known as “The Basterds”, which Brad Pitt plays the leader ,Lt. Raine, which their mission is to kill all the Nazis. Later in the film, “The Basterds” meet a young teenage girl who runs a movie theater which is taken over by Hitler and the Nazis.

As usual Tarantino never dissapoints with his films, I thought this was a very good one. Nothing excellent or amazing. I still love Tarantino’s older flicks better, nothing will top my favorites, “Reservoir Dogs” and “Pulp Fiction”, but “Inglourious Basterds” was very entertaining.

“Basterds” was more of a comedy, it had a lot of whacky humor throughout. The movie had lots of gross out scenes, yes, this film actually has blood and guts and nasty things that would make you want to close your eyes or look away from the screen.

The movie was about 2 hours and 45 minutes long, but it didn’t even feel like it. In Tarantino movies, he makes long films but he is great at the pacing with the films so it makes you feel like they don’t seem that long.

Brad Pitt’s acting was fantastic in this film. Mike Myers cameo was great, but you can’t recognize him at all, I could tell where Mike Myers was just by listening to his speaking voice carefully. The acting of the rest of the cast was okay, but the actor that blew me away the most was Christopher Waltz. The guy that played the Nazi, Hans Landa. I really think Christopher Waltz is going to get Oscar nominated for “Best Supporting Actor” in the next Academy Awards. His acting really was amazing in this movie.

The movie was silly and whacky, but hell, all Tarantino movies are, you just wonder what goes on in that guy’s delusional mind. That Tarantino guy is one crazy man but in a good way though. As usual, there is a foot fetish cameo in “Basterds” like all Tarantino movie has foot fetishes. Everyone knows that Tarantino has a foot fetish in real life so he brings it in all of his films.

Tarantino spent years and years working on “Basterds” and it’s finally here. It’s not over yet, ’cause I think there is a sequel on the way. I remember Tarantino said the script he wrote was so long that he had to split the movie in two. So the ending of “Basterds” left open for another movie, definitely.

I really enjoyed “Inglourious Basterds”, it’s not the best he’s ever done, he’s done better. I hope the sequel will be good too.

Score for “Inglourious Basterds” = *** (3 stars as in “Good”)


Cool Video: Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” trailer hits the internets finally…and it doesn’t look very good…

A film that took over a decade to make, it finally comes out and the film looks dissapointing. So far, I don’t seem to have any interest in it. What a let down of the trailer.

See the trailer:


I’m sure Stallone’s, “The Expendables” will be better than this.


Thought: Ok, I guess it’s spelled “Inglourious Basterds”…

It was originally spelled “Inglorious Bastards” but now Quentin changed the title to “Inglourious Basterds”. Notice the difference? I think Tarantino did it as his way of not confusing people with Enzo Castellari’s 1978 film “Inglorious Bastards”, but I’m sure there’s more than one reason why he changed the title a little bit.

Again, this flick “Inglourious Basterds” is a WWII flick using Nazis for the film. A lot of people seem to love Nazi flicks and this will indeed be more bigger than “Valkyrie”.

As a huge Tarantino fan, knowing how his movies are, the movie will be full of swearing and cussing all the way through…the violence will probably be nasty, bloody and gory. There will be the usual foot fetish cameo’s thrown in there, maybe a usual Uma Thurman appearance. And Tarantino will probably pick some cool kick ass songs that’ll go with the movie.

I just wonder how long this flick is going to be. The latest I heard, the script is so long that the movie will be over 4 hours that’ll split the film up in two different sequels, just like with Tarantino’s “Kill Bill” films.  Not sure if this is the way it will turn out, I’m sure we’ll get word on how long this film will be soon, but it’ll definitely be about 3 hours long or a little more, that’s what it’s sounding like.

I fuckin’ love Tarantino flicks and I look forward to any film he does. His latest flick “Death Proof” was really great, I think that was Kurt Russell’s best role.
