Inglorious B!stards

Inglorious Bastards was one of those movies that just was created in the wrong place in the wrong time. It was released during the late seventies during a time where movies like The Dirty Dozen and Victory were real big and everybody was trying to get their piece of the Nazi-kicking pie. With Enzo Castarelli (director of such lovable junk like 1990: Bronx Warriors, The New Barbarians and the Jaws knockoff The Last Shark ) working with famed Euro film stars Bo Svenson and Fred Williamson, they not only created a cult classic, but also established a high point of Castarelli’s career.

The plot is simple. During the waning end of WWII, a truckload of American military criminals are being transported to prison. After a Luftwaffe attack, everyone in the truck dies except five survivors. After meeting up with a German deserter, they all high tail it to Swizerland, fearing capture of both German and Allied forces. Along the way, they kill a small German patrol for their clothes…only to find out to late that the “Germans” they killed was really an Allied Commando unit on a top secreat mission and if they don’t play along with the French resistance that mistaken them as the commando unit, they would find themselves in a lot deeper trouble then they’re already in.

The three disc DVD is out now under the Severin’s label. Along with the movie, it comes with commentary from Castarelli, a documentary on the film and actual music from the film. The cherry on top of this DVD set is the thirty minute chat between Castarelli and Quentin Tarantino, who is creating the remake for this marvelous film with Brad Pitt and Mike Myers. Tarantino literally gushing at the feet of Castarelli for all to see.

If the three disc collection isn’t your thing or you’re looking for something cheaper, it come in a single disc addition as well.
