Tarantino on The Dirty Dozen


What originally got me to sit down and write “Inglourious Basterds” were all those bunch-of-guys-on-a-mission movies made in the late ’60s and early ’70s, like “Where Eagles Dare”, “The Devil’s Brigade” and ‘"The Dirty Dozen”. I think one of the things that’s just amazing about "The Dirty Dozen", and why I don’t think it could ever be duplicated today, is the fact that you could never find eight actors like that now. It was just a different breed of man. Robert Aldrich threw a rock in a tree and Jim Brown fell out, Charles Bronson fell out, John Cassavetes fell out, and Telly Savalas… and that’s without even mentioning Lee Marvin. There aren’t guys like Charles Bronson and Jim Brown running around any more.’

Does Tarantino ever write about life? Or just old movies?

What I want to know is...

Is this why the Inglorious Basterds featured some lames like BJ Novak (Not knocking the actor...but he's a Basterd?)

The movie was very good. I just expected some true badasses in this movie....

Not Omar Doom and Eli Roth...

Good point.

You could say he writes anecdotal dialogue about life that often has very little to do with the movie and then sets it to the backdrop of some cool homage of movies he loves.

So he gives no credit to the original IB?

Yeah, When I watched the Great Raid, I thought I was looking at a bunch of models wearing uniforms, not hard bitten soldiers. They put them through a boot camp of sorts but they still looked like pretty boys. They showed vintage footage of the rescue at the end and THAT was much better to watch.

Tarantino, at least in my opinion, is one of the most overrated and unoriginal writer/directors working in Hollywood today. Everything he makes is an homage or remake of something that came 40 or 50 years before. I have much more respect for Terrence Malick than I do Tarantino and I can't freaking stand Malick's films.

Now that TVLand is no longer showing classic TV, another network is popped up to take its place, don't remember what it's called, but they show Kojak reruns
