Topic: Tarantino's INGLORIOUS BASTERDS getting brutal reviews.
Further evidence of his decline. Reviewers at Cannes, which has been in love with Tarantino in previous years are giving universally brutal reviews to the film. Brad Pitt is being hit hard on his performance. That doesn't surprise me at all, when he is bad he is really bad, like in his terrible showing in the Coens' Burn After Reading. Even the score is getting reviewed badly. IFC also said the film was terrible and 'tedious' .They just picked up The Antichrist for release over here after it recieved pretty bad reviews also, although not universal by any means. One thing singled out also, is the tedious 'conversation scenes' like the ones that were so good in Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown, and not so good in Deathproof. Here, they apparently suck.
