Inglorious Bastards 1.0

Quentin Tarantino is doing a version of an Italian movie from 1978 called The Inglorious Bastards. His has Brad Pitt and B.J. Novak (Ryan from The Office). We watched the original last night. I was totally digging it from the opening credits, featuring super bold graphics (you see a bit in the trailer). The little Italian guy with the bushy mustache is fun. The one guy who kinda looks like Ryan O'Neal (see 1:36) is so fucking annoying. He's one of those actors you wanna punch in the face just so he'll shut up and go away.

So if you like WWII movies and spaghetti westerns, you should see this one. I'm hoping the remake is also good, but I know it won't have the same feel. Hell, even the audio on the DVD was cool. It sounded like it was coming out of a not–quite–hi–fi mono movie theater speaker system, with just a smidgen of natural old school amp distortion.
