on tha RANT . . .
Quel maledetto treno blindato, literally “That damned armored train”
The original working title was Bastardi senza gloria (literally: “Bastards Without Glory”).
This post is the result of seeing Brad Pitt over and over and over . . . and OH-VER !! . . . there’s this clip on the TV with Brad (fuzzy caterpillar on his lip) saying, “We will be cruel to the Germans.”
I like this from Memorable quotes, a FULL quote: “We will be cruel to the Germans, and through our cruelty they will know who we are. And they will find the evidence of our cruelty in the disemboweled, dismembered, and disfigured bodies of their brothers we leave behind us.”
Yeh, and some Charlie Manson “influenza” . . . Aldo (Pitt) carves a swastika on the forehead of one of the German soldiers . . . and he (Aldo) ain’t takin’ names and numbers folks, HE’S TAKING SCALPS!! HO-LEE CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!
. . . somehow I can’t buy Brad Pitt as a person from Tennessee . . . related to Jim Bridger, and therefore, part INJUN . . . and JEWISH ?? . . . WTF?? . . . the original movie was made in Italy in 1978 . . . s-o-o-o Tarantino does a rewrite and the bloody rip-off gets nominated by the “Academy” for an Oscar . . . the people who go to the “movies” sure don’t know their film history, and neither does the Oscar “committee” . . .
Uh . . . but maybe because he (QT) worked on the script for 10 years . . . isn’t that what James “Avatar” Cameron did . . . he (Cameron) was “waiting” for the necessary “technology” to be developed . . . what a joke.
Tarantino says that Inglorious Basterds is his Dirty Dozen, Guns of Navarone . . . and, I think he forgot Cinderella (Hans Landa has some woman try on a shoe that he finds in a theatre . . .).
Cinderella was MY addition to the list because of the shoe thing . . . uh, where’s . . . uh . . . and didn’t Tom Cruise do a movie about a plot to kill Hitler . . . doesn’t anyone care about ORIGINALITY . . . ??
Well, I did like Pulp Fiction – you can start watching the film at any point and it’s like you just got in at the beginning . . . Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta and Bruce Willis play great characters . . . two story lines that come together . . . AND . . . oh, don’t forget Christopher Walken and the story about the “watch” . . .
And the 2010 KIA Soul CM . . . SUCKS!! . . . except for the cardboard box that noses down and collapses on itself . . . shoulda had a blow-up dolly or two driving the “Soul” . . .
. . . with hydraulics and blue lights in the wheel wells . . . uunh!!
