And you thought Zohan kicked butt!

Or maybe you didn't. Either way, Quentin Tarantino is about to make Sandler's spoofed-up, chop-sockey moves in Zohan look like a day at the Smurf's village when he unleashes his next film, provisionally titled Inglorious Bastards, on audiences everywhere in 2009.

If rumours are true, there's more violence, gore and action in this movie than anything he's done before.

And in case you weren't aware of the plot, here's the synopsis from IMDB:

During World War II a group of Jewish-American soldiers known as "The Basterds" are chosen specifically to spread fear throughout the Third Reich by scalping and brutally killing Nazis.

This movie is going to spark outrage in so many people for so many reasons.

[And yes, the image on the right is of an actual CD, available for purchase online through the usual music store sites. Who knew?]

Still, I'll bet there are more than a few people out there who like the thought of the Nazis getting their comeuppance from a bunch of gun-totin' Jews hell-bent on taking them down in the most gruesome ways possible for the atrocities they visited upon their people. Even if it is only a fiction.

Germans and others are already foaming-at-the-mouth mad with Tarantino about all this. You can read more about the emerging controversy here and here.
