I wasn't a big fan of this one. The filming was good, and acting was good, but I just didn't care for the movie that much and would never watch it again. I will say others will like it; it just wasn't for me.

Quentin Tarantino's retelling of World War II includes unflinching violence and vulgarity, and almost never fails to entertain.

Inglourious Basterds von Quentin Tarantino ist ein grosser und kühner Kriegsfilm, der so einige verärgern wird und andere wohl auch aufschrecken. Vor allem aber liefert er ein ganz anderes Ende des zweiten Weltkrieges. Eines, in dem die Basterds das bekommen, was sie verdienen! Die Lust am Wiederentdecken alter B-Movies (denn so einer ist das Original aus dem Jahr 1978), der Western Soundtrack von Ennio Morricone und die kunstvolle 35mm Fotografie zeigt Tarantinos tiefe Liebe zum Kino! "The Hero", "The Nazi" und "The Girl", drei ikonische, liebevoll entwickelte Charaktere aus der Horde von Kriegern, die hinter den Kampflinien der Nazis operieren. Gespielt von Brad Pitt, Christoph Waltz und Melanie Laurent, die verstanden haben, dass ein Tarantino Charakter grösser sein muss als das …
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.
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 …
