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. ūüė¶

Report: Tarantino announces plans for “Kill Bill 3″…

While promoting “Inglourious Basterds” at the Morelia International Film Festival, Quentin Tarantino announced he has plans to work on “Kill Bill 3”. The third installment of the “Kill Bill” trilogy that will bring back Uma Thurman in the leading role.

With David Carridine being dead in real life, and the Bill character is being dead in the film, how is there gonig to be a third one? You know Tarantino, he has one crazy fucking mind. A very creative mind. He’ll still make Bill be part of the movie some how. Bill Jr., maybe???

I’m betting your money that Tarantino not only wants to do a Kill Bill 3 just for another hit, more importantly, a dedication to Carradine. RIP, Dave.

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:

http://www.variety.com/index.asp?layout=videoBC&bcpid=714034225&bclid=713046265&bctid=11671256001

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.

Confirmed: “Inglorious Bastards” to be released August 21st…

Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Bastards”¬†has got a release date!!! Announced on New Year’s Eve, “Inglorious Bastards” will be released August 21st of 2009 of this year. The August 21st release date comes just after a few months of the Cannes Festival begins around May. Tarantino’s goal was that he hopes to have “Bastards” completed before Cannes Festival so he can debut his film there before release date, his wish may come true.

“Inglorious Bastards” stars Brad Pitt, Mike Myers and a bunch of other casts. “Bastards” took Tarantino years and years to write the script,¬† he’s finally getting the film off the ground and moving forward. The film will be distributed and released through Universal Pictures.

Report: “Inglorious Bastards” begins filming!!!

Quentin Tarantino has finally begun work on “Inglorious Bastards” in Germany, just starting off with principal photography.

The cast so far:

Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger, Melanie Laurent, Christoph Waltz, Daniel Bruhl, Eli Roth, Samm Levine, B.J. Novak, Til Schweiger, Gedeon Burkhard, Paul Rust, Michael Bacall, Omar Doom, Sylvester Groth, Julie Dreyfus, Jacky Ido, August Diehl, Martin Wuttke, Richard Sammel, Christian Berkel, Sanke Mohring, Michael Fassbender, Mike Myers, Rod Taylor, Denis Menochet and Cloris Leachman.

Look like Brad Pitt and Mike Myers will be the two big leading stars of the film. Tarantino tried to ask Leonardo Dicaprio for the film, but look like Leo turned the film down. This also pretty much confirms Sylvester Stallone will not be in the film as well. Oh well. Maybe Stallone and Tarantino will get the opportunity to work together in the future.

Good news that the film is finally in production. Go Tarantino! Bring it on!

Kev

Thought: Who else should star in “Inglorious Bastards”?

So far the confirmed cast is Brad Pitt, Mike Myers, and Eli Roth. I’ve read that Simon Pegg pulled out and some unknown actor got in. It was already announced that Leo Dicaprio maybe getting in soon.

Who do you predict that maybe getting the “Inglorious Bastards” cast?

I’m thinking Sylvester Stallone may get announced soon because Stallone has been quiet about his next movie and I think Stallone is waiting for the right time to announce he’s in this. So I definitely have him in mind. I really think “Inglorious Bastards” would be great for Stallone, this movie almost belongs to Stallone and I really hope Tarantino gets him.

Other actors besides Sly….I think Billy Bob Thornton would be a great addition to the cast. Maybe David Carridine too. I think Denzel Washington would be awesome in this flick as well. As for actresses, I hope Tarantino doesn’t go after Uma Thurman again but I’d like to see Scarlett Johansson in this.

BREAKING NEWS: Mike Myers joins “Inglorious Bastards”!!!!!

Oh my! Another shocking casting addition to Quentin Tarantino’s WWII flick “Inglorious Bastards”! Yes, you heard that right! The Waynes World, Austin Powers and the Love Guru star, Mike Myers will star alongside Brad Pitt in “Bastards”.

Myers will play British General Ed Fenech, a military mastermind who’s mission to plot out a plan to destroy Nazis.

Variety Reports:

Myers going for something that is not a comedy film this time. Like Myers will have to speak an English accent and knowing how good he is at creating different voices when he speaks, I think that’s the reason alone Tarantino wanted him for the film.

This is an interesting cast so far.

Still no confirmation on Sly Stallone yet, but if anything, I’ll still see the movie in theater even if Sly isn’t in it or not ’cause I love Tarantino flicks.
