Transformers Salvation not Castle Worthy. Inglorious Basterds King of the Castle!


"I hate the film. Pure and simple. I loathe it. I hated it so much I didn’t want to see my friend’s faces afterwards. I just wanted to go home and vent. I really really hate this film. I hate how much effort so many great artists and technicians put into a film that’s this fucking bad. Ultimately its just shit moving, like a sewer pipe. I hate that there isn’t a sustained scene or sequence that I love as much as the best moment from TERMINATOR 3. I hate that when I left the theater I felt empty and let down. That I felt like writing a review like this instead of fucking dry humping a great TERMINATOR movie.

This feels like ALIEN RESURRECTION to me. Something that kills something wonderful for me. I’m no longer interested in Terminator. McG terminated my enthusiasm. I love the first two films. At least I’ll always have that. Fuck this movie."

Other Reviews:
"This ambitious redefinition of a franchise is also loud, clumsy and, in the end, doesn't make much sense." Joe Lozito: Big Picture Big Sound

"McG rips off so many scenes from other films, I wasn't sure which movie I was watching!" Fiore Mastracci: Outtakes With Fiore

INGLORIOUS BASTERDS Verdict by Balzman who attended Cannes (lucky prick)
"To sum it up in one word: HOLYSHITOHMYGODWOWOWOW.

Honestly, that's it. This movie is a big step forward for Tarantino - it feels like the natural evolution from the Kill Bill films. If anything, this film feels the least bit "homage"-like out of any of QT's movies...the hallmarks are there, but you can feel that he is onto something different with this film. And even if QT feels like this is a big culmination of his work or even a masterpiece (time will tell on that one), it is by far the best film of the year and a pretty strong contender if you ask me at Cannes (most of the films have been pretty boooring). Just trust me - you're gonna love it."

Other reviews:

"This unashamed slice of Second World War hokum finds Quentin Tarantino in mischievous form as he takes on the Second World War with the driving force of a roller coaster ride." Todd McCarthy: Variety

"There are some nice-ish performances but everything is just so boring. He should perhaps go back to making cheerfully inventive outrageous films like Kill Bill. Because Kill Adolf hasn't worked out." Peter Bradshaw Guardian [UK]
