Brad Pitt, You Basterd.

You say Nazi killer, I say Brad Pitt.

In "Inglorious Basterds," Quentin Tarantino's World War II drama that debuts at Cannes in May, Pitt plays an illiterate hillbilly from Tennessee who puts together a team of eight bloodthirsty, Jewish-American soldiers.

No one ages backward like in Pitt's current movie, but I'm told he makes Germans weep like little babies, so that's kind of the same thing, right?

Tarantino has described it as a Nazi spaghetti western, but I'm sure -- in his typical style -- there will be more dead bodies than Clint Eastwood has racked up in his entire career.

I sometimes think Tarantino's films are one-dimensional, but getting away from mobsters, martial arts and B-movies should be refreshing and fun.

After all, who doesn't like seeing Nazis killed in gloriously gruesome ways?
