IT SHOULDN'T BE SURPRISING...

... that Eli Roth's faux-trailer for his faux-movie within Inglourious Basterds is way terrible:




Shouldn't this trailer at least LOOK like and SOUND like it's from the 1940s if it's supposed to be for a faux-Nazi propaganda film from the 1940s?!?!

And what about this bizarre thing?:



Ehh... screw all that shit. Cleanse your palette with this, my favorite Elliott Smith song:



Ohh shoot... I just can't resist... I'm sorry...

If it appears in the movie like that then yes, it's idiotic because it is so modern looking in style and effects that you might as well do a movie about Abe Lincoln where he uses a cellphone. But do you think it actually appears in the movie, this trailer I mean? I'm thinking it's just part of a marketing scheme to build interest in the movie and as such, they made it just like modern trailers are made.

I don't think the trailer is in the movie, but I think the movie is in the movie... if that makes sense. I think all of the Nazi's (including Hitler) go to see it at the theater that is mentioned at the end of the trailer. I'm guessing the movie will have the same quality as the trailer, but, I don't know. I took the trailer to be as if it was appealing to Nazi's in the year 1940, but perhaps you're right. Either way, I find it to be pretty shoddy.

nice --- a little elliot smith clensing -- totally different tone but kind of fun when the economy got nasty was elliot smith's song junk bond trade.

@ greg -- an Abe Lincoln film with cell phone, why not :-)

I really love the live full band version of "needle in the hay". Both versions are great though.

Evidently Roth couldn't resist on the set. He was so close to a camera and he told Tarantino, I just got shoot something. And if I would have been there, you know, at the Kraft Services table eating my sixth ho ho or something, I would have told Eli to shoot himself.

I would have said that with a mouthful of ho hos or ding dongs or something and not even cared that shit was flying out of my mouth while I said it. I would have told Eli Roth to shoot himself.
