“Inglourious Basterds” clips + early buzz


Movie Web got their hands on three clips from Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, which debuted at Cannes and opens stateside August 21. 

Slashfilm has compiled some early buzz from the film, based upon Tweets and reviews, after it premiered at Cannes. 

Here are a few examples of what people are saying:

Total Film’s Jonathan Dean : “Much of Basterds felt flat, with a schizophrenic spaghetti western style that blasts Ennio Morricone at the start and then David Bowie later on.” … “Enjoyable? Sure. But for 2 hours and 40 minutes it’s a big ask to keep brattishness exhilarating.” … “well worth watching and admirably ambitious and single-minded,” … “Inglourious Basterds will split viewers.”

empiremagazine: Glorious Basterds, as it turns out… very, very good, subverting expectations at every corner. Should make Michael Fassbender a star – C It’s utterly unpredictable. When it looks like going one way, it twists the other, & the ending… so audacious it provokes giddy laughter. Christoph Waltz, as Jew Hunter Hans Landa, is a revelation. Shoo-in for Best Supporting Nom. Looks like evil Rob Brydon too. All performances are uniformly grand.

Sounds like it’s a good flick, but nothing special, as exemplified by these two remarks:

TVCalling: Bottom line of Basterds: entertaining but nothing ground-breaking
