Tarantino's war masterpiece.

I have no shame in saying that this is one of my favorite films of all time. No other film has kept me captivated on the edge of witty dialogue for that long, nor have I been entranced with such mesmerizing performances and carefully executed camera work. This satire speaks to you, makes you laugh, whimper, smile sadistically with joy or just be plain...

Spaghetti WW2

4 stars? Only because it's by the same director as PULP FICTION. That said - this is a wonderfully skewered take on the WW2 movie genre, seen through a Sergio Leone lens. If you've seen Leone's ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST, then BASTERDS is a glorious homage. Don't expect a realistic historical document - it's a movie! Let down only by an overlong scene in...

Gets better everytime

Now, Ive been to see this movie four times now. It just gets better with every viewing. Im at the point where I don't think I even need the sub-titles anymore. The acting of course is great, from Waltz in particular, but also I think a heartfelt and also a breakthrough performance from Melanie Laurent. I wouldnt be shocked if her name appears with waltz...

Putting Out Fire With Gasoline

Erroneously portrayed by its trailer as simply an excessively violent and relatively mindless World War Two parody chronicling the fictional exploits of American Lieutenant Aldo Raine and his rag tag bunch of soldiers, at its heart, Inglourious Basterds is a tragic tale of revenge portrayed through the character of Shosanna Dreyfus, a young French Jew who...

Nazi's talk about movies.

As per normal the movie is a comic book narrative made real, the violence present is brief and sudden and punctuates the dialogue which is just great. I expected it to be a bad movie and it was just great. Nothing is what you would expect from normal narrative convention in movies, if its self indulgent then good for tarantino.

QT is a legend

A brilliant piece of cinema. I love the set pieces, the cinematography, the characters. Amazing, a must-see.

3 things to know

Mexican stand off, great soundtrack and someone you'd love to hate. All of these are in this film (and are all in his others). This so does not make it worth seeing twice or even 3 times. It's nasty and some scenes are long but definitely go

A violent fairy tale, an increasingly entertaining fantasia in which the history of World War II is wildly reimagined so that the cinema can play the decisive role in destroying the Third Reich.

“This ain’t your daddy’s WW2 flick,” reckons Tarantino. Too right: this exploitation epic is a unique beast that molests history, wrong-foots expectations and royally entertains. The movies’ coolest Basterd is back on his game.

QT lets slip the reservoir dogs of war and delivers his best flick in some time.

The film is by no means terrible -- its two hours and 32 minutes running time races by -- but those things we think of as being Tarantino-esque, the long stretches of wickedly funny dialogue, the humor in the violence and outsized characters strutting across the screen, are largely missing.

With a confidence typical of its director, the last line of Inglourious Basterds is, "This might just be my masterpiece." While that may not be true, this is an often dazzling movie that sees QT back on exhilarating form.

In the first and the last 10 minutes there are glimpses of what Inglourious Basterds had the potential to be: It just makes the two hours in between even more of a disappointment.
