Filmnerd enough to be a Basterd?

Between now and the theatrical release of Inglourious Basterds (click here) in August, you’ll have enough time to catch up on your Macaroni Combat education. That’s right, you heard me, Macaroni Combat, not Spaghetti Western. Well actually, you should probably dive in there as well, as Inglourious Basterds is a homage to both (and more). The reason I’m writing this is, that Severin Ent. in the US has just released two centerpiece movies by Enzo Castellari on BluRay (and DVD), which are direct influences on Inglourious Basterds. The one is of course the “original” 1977 Inglorious Bastards (click for more info), the other is Eagles Over London (click here for more info).  Aside from that, you can check out our growing Movie References Guide for Inglourious Basterds, which will bring you closer to a few movies that are key to acquiring some trivia/nerd knowledge about the movie. Enjoy reading.
