Script reviewers argue that the story is far more dynamic than this teaser lets on.
I agree though, that it looks pretty weak so far. I felt the same way when the first trailer for Kill Bill came out. And while I may be alone here, I really liked both of them.
I’ll come out and say that I thought the KB movies were terrible except for a few scenes. I liked them stylistically at times, but not in any sustained way. Certainly not in the way that I liked Pulp Fiction and yes, Jackie Brown. How was the double bill with Robert R.?
Brad Pitt sounds awful with that phony southern accent, so I hated the rest of the trailer, too.
I think it might be too soon to tell by the trailer, which feels like a frat boy pep talk before a beer pong tourny. I am hoping he takes these bastArds and makes them seem more inhumane than the Nazis – which may be an obvious move, but one not many folks would feel comfortable enough to do, particularly at QT’pie’s distribution level. Hopefully it will not suffer from ereckyle dysfunction.
BP’s accetn aside, his neck scar is pretty cool. I hope neck scars come back in style. And mustaches.
