The Inglourious Basterds Movie Page
Tarantino's sixth film is a funnier and more entertaining version of World War II. It stars Brad Pitt, Christoph Waltz, Michael Fassbender, Eli Roth, Diane Kruger, Daniel Brühl, Til Schweiger and Mélanie Laurent. The title was inspired by Italian director Enzo G. Castellari's 1978 film (featuring a more traditional plot and title spelling) The Inglorious Bastards.
The Inglourious Basterds Script
A "QT universe" WWII story of a guerrilla-like squad of American soldiers called "The Basterds" and the French Jewish teenage girl Shosanna who find themselves behind enemy Nazi lines during the German occupation.

Inglourious Basterds: Quentin Tarantino on David Letterman
Like most talk show hosts with long careers, David Letterman is normally pretty unfunny. He does however manage to make one funny comment about his own somnabulistic audience though.

inglourious Bastards Soundtrack
As far as I know, this this is the first soundtrack without dialogue excerpts from the film. The genre range is exactly what you expect— a great mix of American funk and European pop and folk music from between World War II and present day. To be fair, it's got some great tracks of course, but overall this is definitely not "essential on vinyl" or "a must own on reel-to-reel" for serious QT fans. Perhaps it could have used some film samples and another track or two more. But it's hard to knock a great movie soundtrack for being exactly that, a great movie soundtrack.
The version I bought on iTunes includes a 15-minute video interview with Elvis Mitchell which explains all the musical choices Tarantino made for the film and the thought process behind them. That was a nice bonus.
