So the reviews are slowly streaming in for Tarantino's much ballyhooed new film Inglourius Basterds
People have been talking about this movie for years now. The scalping! The accents! The Brad Pitts! Frankly, I'm a little tired of the endless chatter and am ready to see the movie for myself and make an informed opinion. But since we have three more months to wait before the movie is officially released, I'll just have to make do with the next best thing-critic reviews from the Cannes Film Festival. The movie has just made its debut there this week. As of today, there are conflicting reviews coming in. Some complimentary, some not so much. Whichever reviews Tarantino decides to read, it'll be interesting to see if he makes any significant changes to the film before its August release date. Until then we'll just have to sit on our hands and wait to see how it turns out (or scour the internet for a bootleg copy-just kidding!)
