A brilliant film that's one of Tarantino's absolute best. Some of the scenes run a bit long, but the sharp screenplay moves the plot along nicely. Solid performances. One of the best of 2009!

Tarantino's revisionist history is gloriously steeped in dark humor, entertaining action sequences, and a macabre and introspective look at an often captured period of history. Never has WWII been done like this. The ensemble cast shines, more so in their joint scenes than individually. Christoph Waltz's breakout role lives up to all the hype, as he fully embodies charm and evil in every lilting line and the explosive and fiery conclusion, though completely off the rails historically, is a delight, both cinematically and as pure entertainment value.

Taratino's magnum opus (after 'Pulp Fiction', of course)! Christoph Waltz is sumptuous and sadistic as the big bad.

Tarantino on thin ice.

I think I've discussed Inglourious Basterds around a thousand times.

This is a very peculiar movie from my perspective, because although it is at times fascinating and Tarantino gold, it also has its weak moments.
Quentin Tarantino is one of my favorite directors. And the way I see his style, he always makes one of two movies. One: An extremely smart, twisted, dialogue-filled and cool movie like Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, or Two: he makes an extremely disgusting movie and gets lost in his little universe, like at the end of Django Unchained or in Kill Bill: Volume One.

Inglourious Basterds is honestly a good balance of those two signature Tarantino styles. I personally adore the tension-filled basement bar scene and the introduction, but I also have some severe issues.
For i...

My Favorite Movie of All Time

This is not the greatest movie ever made, it isn't even Tarantino's greats; but this is my favorite movie of all time. It is the most fun and thrilling movie I have ever seen. Every aspects of this job was perfect and well thought out down to costume design. Pitt was hilarious and brilliant in his role as Lt. Aldo Raine but is heavily overshadowed by one of the best performances I have seen on screen in a long time, given by Christoph Waltz. The sheer brilliance of it all is captivating and exciting. It has a dark comic book goofiness to it, especially with characters Hugo Stiglets and The Bear Jew. The entire theater scene is magnificently done. It was drawn up and executed perfectly.

--Spoiler-- When the massacre began in the theatre with the screaming, the burning, the laughter of L...

"Inglourious Basterds" by Yojimbo

Quentin Tarantino returns with the story of the Basterds, a group of Jewish soldiers performing guerilla warfare and terror tactics behind enemy lines to strike fear into the hearts of German soldiers during World War II. Inglourious Basterds is a very difficult film to pigeonhole. It's part Jewish revenge fantasy, part gung ho war film, part knowing parody of patriotic flag wavers and 100% Tarantino. His trademark patchwork of styles and references is as evident as ever; the opening scenes are pure Leone, turns into The Dirty Dozen and then zig zags off on tangents all over the place. It's impossible not to enjoy a film with this premise (unless you are a closet Fourth Reicher or member of the BNP) and Brad Pitt's hilarious send up of a hick war hero is almost as good as Christoph Waltz'...
