Quentin Tarantino, director and writer of “Inglourious Basterds,” certainly delivered a masterpiece of a film after much anticipation. The “spaghetti western war-film” didn’t disappoint followers of his previous films, such as “Pulp Fiction,” “Reservoir Dogs,” and the “Kill Bill” series. Tarantino has proved he can assemble an extraordinary cast, a unique music selection, and fantastic plot to create a memorable movie.
As the football season approaches us this weekend on the majority of college campuses across the nation, students and fans alike can’t wait to watch their team take the gridiron on Saturday. Texas football possesses a rich tradition and history like no other college.
Tarantino does a wonderful job of blending comedy and tragedy in his new movie, while altering the history of World War II through his own eyes.
There is nothing like a Saturday in Darrell K. Royal Texas Memorial Stadium. The band playing "Texas Fight," HD replays on the Godzillatron, and watching the drama unfold on the field in the heart of Texas.
One person who probably wants to alter their own history is Texas head football coach Mack Brown. Texas Tech’s wide receiver Michael Crabtree quickly put a bullet through the heart of Longhorns fans after his last second touchdown last year.
However, Texas is back with vengeance this season and hopes to book a ticket to Pasadena in 2010.
It was all about the Jews getting revenge on the Nazi regime in “Inglourious Basterds.” But what if Mack Brown made his own movie? What if he wrote and directed a film about the upcoming football season?
If Brown were to direct and cast a similar movie to Tarantino’s recent work, it would go a little something like this.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you, “The Glorious Longhorns.”
