“Inglourious Basterds” aims for more box office glory
Director Quentin Tarantino’s widely-hyped “Inglourious Basterds” enters its second weekend at U.S. and Canadian box offices on Friday after claiming the No. 1 spot last weekend with a debut of around $38 million. Tarantino has many loyal fans who can be counted on to show up on the opening weekend, but the second weekend is a bigger question. If fans liked the movie and if their “word-of-mouth” recommendations to friends are strong, then “Inglourious” may be able to retain audiences and beat newcomers “The Final Destination” and “Halloween 2.”
So far, “Inglourious” has scored fairly well with critics and fans. At review site rottentomatoes.com, it receive an 88 percent positive score among critics. At Metactric (http://www.metacritic.com), it received a score of 69 out of 100 among critics and a user rating of 7.8, based on 206 votes.
