Considering the number of times I’ve watched Tarantino movies in general – especially Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, which I had even on VHS – it was fun watching Inglourious Basterds again because I had only watched it once (and same goes for Django Unchained). I really enjoyed it, much more than I remembered enjoying it, and it was so fun to take in Christoph Waltz’s fantastic performance again – he truly steals every single scene he’s in. I was also taken aback when David Bowie’s “Cat People” was used for one sequence – I didn’t remember that at all, and it works so perfectly in the context.
How’s this for a promotion: Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds opens in Japan on November 20, and the distributor is offering a money-back guarantee during the first four days of release. This means if you leave the film within the first hour of the film, you get your ticket refunded. Not a bad way to promote the film. Via Japan Probe.
