Large Association of Movie Blogs (LAMB) Devours The Oscars: INGLORIOUS BASTERDS

Hey peeps,

This blog is a proud member of The Large Association of Movie Blogs- a consortium of the best movie bloggers on the entire planet. We at LAMB have an ongoing, annual series of articles covering all of the categories for this year's Oscars. Yours truly had the pleasure of writing about Quentin Tarantino's INGLORIOUS BASTERDS. My thoughts on the BASTERDS can be found here.

Thanks, Annie! I really appreciate your support.

Nice write up buddy. Rickey is torn between "Hurt Locker" and "Basterds" for his Oscar pick. "Hurt Locker" was a fairly simple action movie, but so well executed that Rickey enjoyed it immensely. "Basterds" had some incredible acting, particularly from Christoph Waltz as you pointed out. Either way, if "Avatar" wins for anything other than FX, Rickey will be pissed.

Adam said...

Thanks, man. Yeah, I agree re: "Avatar." As for "Hurt Locker" have you read the article at overthinkingit.com about how that movie is basically "Lethal Weapon?" It's an immensely well-done analysis, let me know what you think. I liked "Hurt Locker" a lot, but I thought "The Messenger" was a more interesting, less sensationalistic story about a similar topic. And as for "Locker" being a Murtaugh & Riggs story... well, that just forever changed the way I look at that movie.

Very entertaining article--Rickey had never seen the obvious connection, but yup, it's clear as day.

BTW, Rickey just watched the atrocious Richard Donner cut of Supes II and woo boy, it that a stinker.

Adam said...

Ah, the Donner cut of Superman II- I never saw it, but reading Harry Knowles' glowing review of it was enough to convince me it was going to be bad.

The theatrical cut of Supes II hasn't aged well either. It's a very iffy film- some great parts and some downright bad stuff mixed in. I hope Chris Nolan has carte blanche with the new Superman movie he's working on with his team. No polar bears or giant mechanical spiders, please.

@Anonymous- thank you!

I just saw Inglourious Basterds yesterday morning. Great film. I was happy to see Christoph Waltz won the Oscar for best supporting actor. He was amazing.

Adam said...

@Sunny- right on- I was rooting for Waltz too- he owned that movie and Tarantino was a genius (or extremely lucky) to have cast him in it. Without Waltz, BASTERDS would have been a far lesser film.
