Quentin Tarantino’s INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS Could Have 25 Percent Less Nazi-Killing

     June 9, 2009

headline-3.jpgSince every person who saw Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” at Cannes didn’t immediately ejaculate all over themselves (a standing ovation would have been far less messy), it looks like the Weinstein Company and Universal are sending QT back to the editing room to chop out about forty minutes of 2 hour and 40 minute movie.  Not a lot of people know this, but Americans are incapable of paying attention to anything for longer than two hours.  Even two hours is pushing it but you try to make an American watch something for 120 minutes and 1 second and that American’s head will explode.  Just ignore the fact that all but one of the top ten all-time highest-grossing films of all-time are over two hours long.  Of course, when you chop out a significant chunk of a movie, you can then sell the whole movie again to audiences as an “Unrated” edition!  Hurray!
