A case of mistaken identity

Paul and I rented Inglorius Bastards, using our netflix account to stream it through our Wii. It was pretty cool. The video streamed exceptionally well, and best of all, no commercials!

After waiting for Brad Pitt to show up for about 45 minutes, we eventually realized that we had rented Inglorious Bastards (1978), instead of Inglorious Basterds (2009).

This movie really didn't disappoint though. It too was a WWII-set grindhouse movie with some racial overtones and a saucy commanding officer in a leather bomber jacket. Lots of really good fight scenes. Really, much more exciting and interesting than this poorly made trailer makes it look. I can't believe how much they focused on the train and the gyroscope!

The other weird part is how much Peter Hooten, who plays Tony (just Tony) looks like Glen Howerton from It's Always Sunny.

This Tony character also makes the similarity creepier by doing dickish, Dennis-Reynoldsy things. That nurse he's flirting with at 1:20? He started seducing her mere minutes after a different guy declared his interest. Awkward!

Anyways, really good stuff.
