Summary: In Nazi-occupied France during WW2, a group of Jewish-American soldiers known as "The Basterds" are chosen specifically to spread fear throughout the Third Reich by scalping and killing Nazis.
I put this flick on a pedestal for 2009. Yes, it's Quentin jacking off from start to finish, but he put a decade into this, give him his tune on the ol' piss pipe. Only reason I knock this flick down is, it does drag in places for those who are anti-tons-of-dialogue/subtitles. There's enough action to keep the pace for my taste, though. Absolutely LOVED the Quentin-Aldo tangent with the "masterpieces". The film's opening is worth the ticket price without doubt; Waltz, meet my good friend Oscar.
Tarantino mixes genres and styles and largely succeeds. I most liked the French New Wave influenced parts but the action scenes were really good as well. Everything ties together and despite the length and chaptered storytelling, it never drags.
Tarantino scores with a great bunch of excellent actors ( up ahead Christoph Waltz who plays the ruthless Jewhunter and Brad Pitt as Leader of the Inglourious Basterds),a terrific cinematography and a beautiful Soundtrack.There are some really heavy gore scenes ( from fx master Nicotero ) and I think it might scare some viewers,but hey every movie nazis were killed is a got movie. Brilliant work by Quentin.
I may not admire everything about Tarantino, but I do admire his patience. Most thrillers these days don't want to linger for fear that the audience gets restless. Tarantino sometimes overstays his welcome in a scene or two, but in a number of scenes (especially the incredibly opening sequence) he has a perfect sense of timing, finding an unpleasant moment and keeping us in it until we start sweating. The movie is overlong, but then again, Tarantino's movies always have been.
A very good film. As many people have said already, Christopher Waltz gives an awesome performance as a Gestapo officer, and Pitt brings an excellent air of comedy to the whole experience. The first act in particular is an excellent example of the strong emotional power this film holds under its lightweight exterior. A little goofy, but highly entertaining nonetheless.
Quite entertaining for being a tarted-up exploitation film. It suffers a bit because the pattern of tension and release is predictable until the last chapter. The characters are mostly very one-dimensional also, even when only contrasted against other Tarantino films. On the other hand, the acting is excellent, and the film is a great introduction to a lot of lesser-known faces.
Maybe it was the subtitles, or the period-piece setting, but this was the least overtly "Tarrantino" film I've seen. This is a good thing. Sure, some of his subtle comic touches and snappy dialogue are present, but they never act as a crutch, or come off as hipster indulgences. Here, all of his tools are used to serve the story, and a compelling tale it is, full of revenge, betrayal and helacious violence. The opening scene at the dairy farm should stand alongside the best of Q's career.
