Fantasia Fest: Inglourious Basterds Tickets?

Way OT, but it's summer so I figured I'd give it a shot...

Does anybody know where I might find 1 or 2 tickets for the Inglourious Basterds screening at Fantasia Fest? Last time I checked Admission.com it wasn't even listed, now I just checked and found out they sold out



Cheers

Good luck...they sold out in like an hour, and from what I understand there weren't even many tickets available to the general public, it's mostly sponsors and VIPs that got them.

Of course I should also note that I'd be interested in procuring one as well if anyone's selling

Maybe on eBay, kijiji or something like that. I bought my tickets by phone before the «official hour» and a lot of people did too... Good luck.

Haha I just called that guy and came here to post. He's telling me he has 2 tickets left and his last pair sold for $150 (he bought them for $16!!). I don't know if he's BSing me to drive up the price but I can't even think about going that high so I told him I was out. But if anyone wants to try their luck, act quick, I'm sure he won't have trouble getting rid of them...

I would've paid that to see it in Cannes at the real premiere, but not at Fantasia! I guess I'll just wait 3 more weeks then if that's the market value now..

Especially since apparently it's not a very good movie. If it was getting movie-of-the-year, better-than-Pulp-Fiction reviews I'd consider it, but it isn't.

He was also saying he thinks Tarantino could make a surprise appearance too (since Roth is there and it's basically the North American premiere) but it could have been part of his little sales pitch.

It's the new Quentin Tarantino movie (Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill, etc), starring Brad Pitt, and it's the first time it's being shown in North America. Probably one of the most anticipated movies of the year.

(OT but I feel I should also complain about Fantasia/Admission letting somebody buy 10 tickets...should've had a 2 per customer limit..bah!)

Haha the dainty eurotrash types at cannes didn't like a movie about americans killing nazis, what a surprise.

I bet this movie is gonna be a smash hit like 300.

People in Cannes didn't like it much, thought it was somewhat boring. I like Tarantino so I hope he fixed it since the Cannes screening. But his first two movies are still his best work

Comparing it to 300 isn't helping your argument. Of course Basterds is going to make a ton of money at the box office - that has nothing to do with anything.

Also, believe it or not, they have good ol' 'MERICAN reviewers at Cannes too. And some of them didn't like it either.

Apparently the trailers are misleading, it's not nazi-killing-"kosher porn" all the way like Eli Roth said, which may have left some people underwhelmed.

I hope I'll enjoy it more than them, by sitting through it fully expecting a somewhat slow paced wwII drama, spiced up with tarantino's trademark dialogues and some frantic action bursts.

300 was very well done aesthetically , especially the battle scenes, as long as this movie has anywhere near tarantino's usual style it will be great.

Any reviewer sitting around cannes american or not I don't give a damn of their opinion. These guys are so pretentious and ridiculous, the same ones who think crap like slumdog millionaire is a great film, their opinions are worthless they are so soaked in ego and arthouse culture.

If you don't like the kinds of movies they do then more power to you but I would have to think that the top film critics in the world at the most prestigious film festival in the world know a thing or two about what makes a good movie. Incidentally this is the same festival that awarded Pulp Fiction their top prize years ago, so how much pretentious arthouse bias can they possibly have?

@JackieChan: Yeah a lot of people seemed underwhelmed by the lack of action and the amount of talking (sounds like the Death Proof criticisms to be honest) and the fact that there just isn't enough to hold it together. I don't know, I'm not a big Tarantino fanboy but I still have high hopes for it.

Tarantino's dialogues seems less interesting with each new movie he makes. I liked Death Proof, but there's too much useless, empty chat.

And that's what the critics said about his new movie too. Hopefully he'll fix this by rearranging the cut.

For those interested, the movie is awesome. I was a bit reluctant because I really disliked Deathproof but this one is so entertaining. In terms of style, you know what you'll get in a Tarantino's movie, but this one feels a lot more mastered.
