Tarantino's Basterds Looks as Lousy as His Spelling

(Newser) – The trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s new film, Inglourious Basterds, is just 100 seconds long, but that's enough. "Perhaps there will prove to be a level of postmodern self-ironising,” Paul MacInnes writes in the Guardian. “Perhaps serving up Kill Bill with the Holocaust as a backdrop will be a fabulously worthwhile endeavor.” More likely, he writes, "This is going to be the worst film ever made!"

The trailer boasts, “You haven't seen war until you've seen it through the eyes of Quentin Tarantino,” which “takes some gall,” MacInnes writes. “If this film isn't the work of a man who not only has nothing left to say, but is reveling in his ability to continue not saying it, then I don't know what is.”
