Quentin Tarantino loves promoting his films as much as he loves making them and we enjoy watching them. His latest movie, Inglourious Basterds
, is a glorious triumph that won’t disappoint his disciples. Lots of directors challenge our butts with extra long movies nowadays, but Blu-ray Bob was captivated by all 152 minutes of Brad Pitt and his team of Nazi-kicking Basterds. Tarantino said he wants to finish work on Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair
when he is officially done with Basterds
. The Whole Bloody Affair
is a cut that combines volumes 1 and 2 and contains some notable differences from the theatrical versions. For example, the House of Blue Leaves scene is in color and there is an entire new anime sequence. "I actually wrote a much longer script for the anime section during O-Ren's revenge chapter," says Tarantino. "Remember the guy with the long hair that kills her father? It's like, what happened to that dude? Well, I wrote it and it was the biggest, most elaborate thing I wrote — her taking him down." Tarantino then persuaded producer Harvey Weinstein to make and insert this expanded sequence, although no release date for The Whole Bloody Affair
has been set. Now if Tarantino could just convince Weinstein to release a theatrical version of Grindhouse
with the fake trailers reinserted, we’d be happy Basterds.
