Quentin Tarantino at the Inglorious Basterds premiereNo one melds smart dialogue, magnetic characters, engrossing narrative and brutal violence into a single filmgoing experience quite like Quentin Tarantino. All those things -- and a Southern-drawling, mustache-sporting, Nazi-scalping Brad Pitt -- are on display in his latest film 'Inglourious Basterds,' a revisionist take on WWII, which not-so-subtly hints that movies have the power to end war.

Moviefone recently chatted with Tarantino and, after getting over his initial disappointment that he would not be interviewed by Mr. Moviefone (and, of course, proceeding to deliver his own rendition of "the voice" -- "If the reason you did this movie was to rewrite history, press 2!"), the 'Pulp Fiction' auteur opened up about writing his own bloody ending to WWII, hanging out with Pitt on set ... and living in a world in which Paula is not on 'American Idol.'
