The Scotiabank Theatre in downtown Vancouver had a special secret advance screening of "Inglourious Basterds" with special guest, director and Bear Jew, Eli Roth. The event was put on by CFOX and ROCK 101 and we'd like to give Mike Cohen a special thanks for enabling us to be present at this momentous event.
The film is everything you've heard and more. Certainly a masterpiece. The characters were amazingly developed and engaging and the story was incredible. The violent scenes were brilliantly executed. Though obviously playing out in a morbid time, it was filled with trade mark Tarantino humor and unexpected laughs. I'd say, "go see it" but unless you live in a cave, I'm sure you will.
And mister Eli Roth was unbelievable. Bloody smart, funny, and cooler than you could ever imagine. He was kind enough to meet with us after the screening and talk about projects, present and future.
Many more good things to come.
