I got my Wish. I read Tarantinos 'Inglorious Bastards' Script!

by Joey Paur
This is a movie I can't wait to see! I got the opportunity to read though the script yesterday thanks to our friends at Gone Elsewhere for making my wish come true. I loved this script! It was so freakin awesome! 'Inglorious Bastards' is going to be Quentin Tarantinos best movie of his career! I blazed through the script in about 2 hours. I was pulled right in the story and it never let me go. The characters that Tarantino builds in the story are the best he has ever created! The movie is very much going to be made in Tarantino fashion. He is going to play with different film styles and the way the script was written reveals how he has a couple different stories going on and in the end they all come together to create all kinds of chaos. After reading the script I understand what Tarantino meant when he talked about making 'Inglorious Bastards' a modern WWII movie. It is all in the style he wants to use. The dialogue used in the film is brilliant it is so fun to read I can only imagine how it will be executed on screen! I really don't want to ruin anything for anybody so I am not going to talk about the amazing story that the script tells but I do want to tell you about a few characters in the story:

Col Lada a.k.a The Jew Hunter - This guy is a piece of work. He can be very pleasant, but is evil as hell. He explains his nick name himself:
"The feature that makes me such a effective hunter of the Jews, is, as, opposed to most German Soldiers, I can think like a Jew. Where they can only think like a German or more precisely, a German Soldier. Now if one were to determine what attribute the German people share with a beast, it would be the cunning a predatory instinct of a hawk..."

Lt. Aldo Raine a.k.a Aldo the Apache - He is the leader of The Bastards and you can't help but love this hick. I would really like to see Brad Pitt take this role.
"...I got a word of Warning to all would-be warriors. When you join my command, you take on debit. A debit you owe me, personally. Every man under my command, owes me one hundred Nazi scalps. And I want my scalps. And all y'all will git me, one hundred Nazi Scalps, taken from the heads of one hundred dead Nazi's... or you will die trying."

Sgt. Donnie Donowitz a.k.a The Jew Bear - This is my favorite character. Here is a guy that bought a Baseball bat before he went to war to beat Nazis with!
"I'm going through the neighborhood. If you have any loved ones in Europe, who's safety you fear for, I'd like you to write their name on my bat."

Shosanna - A Jewish girl in hiding from that Nazis. She runs a movie theater that shows German films.

That is all I really want to reveal to you guys. I would tell you more but I don't want to ruin the movie for you. There are just so many details that go into the characters that make the story so amazing. If you want to know more then you will have to read the script yourself! And I just want to say that I absolutely love the ending of this script!

I had such a fun time reading ‘Inglorious Bastards' and imagining what the movie is going to be like. It is going to be one hell of film!
