Quentin Tarantino on “Idol”

The cheesy, Brian-Adams-heavy song selections aside, this week’s “American Idol” kinda rocked…and with the exception of Kris Allen, Adam Lambert and Lil Rounds, it had nothing to do with the show, and everything to do with our favorite guest judge in recent memory…Quentin Tarantino!

Yep, the badass filmmaker was back for another visit to “Idol”, and even though he didn’t get much screen time — neither did the judges in that horribly misguided effort to streamline the show, yikes! — QT did seem to have a blast “tutoring” the contestants. So, yay for that.

And though the show was just as gloriously over-the-top as any true Tarantino fan could have hoped for, our biggest gripe with this week’s “Idol” is that they didn’t show a trailer for QT’s upcoming flick, “Inglorious Basterds”. Huh?

I mean, hello, why else was he there if not to promote his new movie? I don’t know if it’s because the movie is rated R and might offend the delicate sensibilities of the “Idol” audience or whatever, but I know we wanted to see a new frigging trailer! Man alive, you missed the boat again FOX

So, until a longer trailer pops up online, you can check out the rocking teaser spot for “Basterds” here. Enjoy!

    I’ve always thought Quentin’s real motivation for writing, directing, and acting is so that he can do celebrity guest things like this.

  2. Ha, totally! The dude does love himself some limelight!

  3. What I liked about Quentin was that it was clear that he was a fan of the show. Compare that with Randy Jackson a few weeks back who might as well have phoned his useless comments in.

    Er, Randy Travis, James?

    And yes, QT is clearly a fan, but OMG…he needs to get on some meds.
