Well. "Broad comedy to outright horror," eh? And one of the world's whitest WASPs cast as a "Bowery Boy Jew."QUENTIN Tarantino's new war movie, the strangely spelled "Inglourious Basterds," is shaping up to be the blood-spattered antidote for anyone who's depressed by the recent torrent of Holocaust movies - it's one big slaughterfest in which hundreds of Nazis are gleefully executed in the most gruesome ways possible.In the movie, Brad Pitt heads up a team of "Bowery Boy Jews seemingly right from the heart of Hell's Kitchen" who are out to collect 100 Nazi scalps each, according to Knowles. The plot goes from broad comedy to outright horror. In one scene, a soldier played by Eli Roth takes a bat to one Nazi, which ended up "splattering Nazi-brain blood all over me and my script, even though I was a good 15 to 20 feet away," Knowles says.In another scene, actor Omar Doom, who's described as looking like a "young Al Pacino," effortlessly scalps some Germans while machine-gunning others.
An insider said: "The Nazis really get their comeuppance."
And yet - this might actually be good. Listen, Natural Born Killers was a comedy, in case you did not get it, and featured brilliant acting by Robert Downey, Jr. and Woody Harrelson. The amount of fake blood mentioned in the article already makes this sound as "realistic" as a Monty Python movie ("come back here, you bastard - I'll bite your kneecaps off!").
