Quentin Tarantino’s WWII flick ‘Inglourious Basterds‘ is still two weeks away, but we’re already excited the director’s latest genre mashup — WWII action flick meets spaghetti western. And the buzz (and controversy) is only beginning to grow, this is Tarantino after all. Before you see Tarintino’s take, see the film that inspired it all, Italian director Enzo Castellari’s 1978 war movie ‘Quel Maledetto Treno Blindato,’ known in the US as ‘The Inglourious Bastards’. If you’re in New York, head to the IFC Center for screenings of the original ‘Bastards’ on Friday, August 14, and Saturday August 15, at midnight. Sure, there’s no Brad Pitt in it, but at least it’ll hold you over until ‘Inglourious Basterds’ premieres on August 21.
