The fine folks at ReelzChannel.com have an interesting little Top Ten list on the various character types used by Tarantino over the years and what INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS characters fit each particular type.
You can check it out here.
Next for Tarantino? How about a British spy movie based on the novels of Len Deighton?
Short List Magazine has an interview with Tarantino
BigGeoff from CineFOOLS got to attend the Sydney premiere of Inglourious Bastards and has posted a very positive review.
With Inglourious Basterds just around the corner Tarantino is busy on two fronts; deciding on a final cut (keep that bastard..err…basterd long, I say) and prepping for the endless rounds of interviews and promotion that come with a highly anticipated new release.
But after that, what’s next?
For the sake of fun and a good argument, if you had your choice, what “Sequel” would you like to see come from Mr. Brown in the near future? For years a VEGA BROTHERS film had been rumored in the works. I’ve heard musings over a Kill Bill sequel THE BRIDE.
So, dear reader, what would you like to see as a Tarantino feature?
PULP FICTION PART TWO
TRUE ROMANCE 2
THE DEADLY VIPERS
TALES OF THE WOLFE
RAVEN MCCOY AND FOX FORCE FIVE
Do any of these strike your fancy, or do you have something bigger and bolder in mind. Let us know what you think.
Tonight is the 2nd Annual Quentin Tarantino Burlesque Film Festival.
A burlesque show inspired by the genius that is Quentin Tarantino.
Guns, blood, vampires, serial killers, tassels, bible quotes, nurses, swords, school girls, snakes, pussy, theft, great music and a cheeseburger royale!
Coming off a sold out show on July 20th, it’s your last chance to see it this year! Only the Monday Night Tease!, LA’s longest running weekly burlesque show, dares to top the talent of Mr Tarentino by mocking him in a burlesque tribute. Providing 18 performers covering 10 films, the show provides numbers inspired by iconic films like Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill, and even pays homage to Reservoir Dogs with a Ms Blond led bloodbath of near nakedness.

Harry Knowles and the fine folks at AICN are reporting that a top secret (well…that is…top secret until now) screening of the shorter, more stream-lined, American-audiences-cut of INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS will be available for screening for a select few attendees of everyone’s favorite comic and media convention in San Diego this Saturday, July 25th.
For the full skinny, check out the original article.
With INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS a little over a month away from it’s U.S. debut the question of the moment is where will Brad Pitt’s Lt. Aldo Raine, Eli Roth’s Donny Donowitz and the other Basterds rank in the vast and memorable library of Tarantino characters?
With that in mind we would like to know not only where you think they will stack up, but also who you think are QT’s coolest and most memorable characters?
Who do you like? The Bride? Vic or Vincent Vega? Mr. Blonde? Stuntman Mike? Mr. White? Jules Winnfield? Bill? Seth Gecko?
Chime in and let us know what you think. And remember, fix your bayonets, strap on your helmets and prepare for the coming of the Basterds, August 21.
