Once upon a time in Nazi occupied France...
In Nazi-occupied France during World War II, a group of Jewish-American soldiers known as "The Basterds" are chosen specifically to spread fear throughout the Third Reich by scalping and brutally killing Nazis. The Basterds, lead by Lt. Aldo Raine soon cross paths with a French-Jewish teenage girl who runs a movie theater in Paris which is targeted by the soldiers.
If there is one person who understands the power of language it is one Mr. Tarantino. He has already proven he is a master of dialogue and here he pushes himself even further and tries his hands at writing dialogue not only in a completely different time period but also in not one but three other languages than English.
And the thing that increases the insane amount of respect I already had for the man is the fact that he succeeds superbly in capturing the cadence and flair we've come to expect from him in all of them.
Tarantino is never one for the complicated plot, he is all about the narrative, both visual and lingual. Here, he perhaps finds…
Upon its original release I approached Inglourious Basterds with some trepidation having found Tarantino’s previous two films (Kill Bill vol. II and Death Proof) to be self-indulgent, overly long and poorly plotted. Therefore it came as quite a surprise that I absolutely loved this comic book revenge fantasy despite it suffering from exactly the same issues that dogged his previous films. So why the change of heart despite it featuring familiar complaints?
Firstly, and perhaps most importantly, is that the film signalled a return to Tarantino’s great characters and dialogue. Death Proof was torturously boring for me because the film’s characters were just as dull (with the exception of the criminally underused Stuntman Mike) yet in Inglourious Basterds the film…
The last time I watched Inglourious Basterds was in a movie theater in 2009. Upon revisiting it last night I was surprised to find I liked it even more the second time around.
I was almost surprised at how often I found myself laughing at Brad Pitt's character's facial expressions, he was really great as Lt. Aldo Raine. Mélanie Laurent was also fantastic as the brave, intelligent and dedicated, escaped Jewish Frenchwoman named Shosanna who owns a little movie theater in Nazi occupied France. I loved her character even more when she was putting on her war paint to the tune of David Bowie's "Cat People" (Putting Out Fire). There is a scene where Shosanna is unwillingly and unexpectedly sitting…
The sixth film by Quentin Tarantino finds the esteemed filmmaker in sublime form as he blends the genres of war & spaghetti western into one stylish, violent & vengeful cinematic delight that brims with Tarantino's patented wordplay, fascinating characters, uninhibited violence, outstanding cast & excellent performances to deliver a thrilling ride that enthrals, entertains & satisfies on all levels, and keeps getting better with every subsequent viewing.
Set in Nazi-occupied France, Inglourious Basterds intercuts two storylines. First concerns a young Jewish girl who, after witnessing her family being killed by an SS officer, plots her revenge several years later when a German war film is arranged to premiere at her theatre. The second plot follows a team of Jewish-American soldiers who plan to assassinate…
Oh yes...this is fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. Let's just review some of the things I love about it:
1. The fact that this may seem like a remake from the title, but has pretty much no relevance whatsoever to the original.
2. Christoph Waltz...his line delivery is the best in the world (looks like he's perfecting it in Django Unchained!)
3. The spaghetti western under-tones. It's possibly the first WW2 western ever, and hopefully the last.
4. The size of Brad Pitt's bowie knife.
5. Michael Fassbender's terrible mistake in the bar.
6. Mike Myer's cameo.
7. Enzo G. Castellari's cameo.
8. The name of chapter 5 (Revenge of the Giant Face).
9. Tarantino's cameo as 'First scalped Nazi'.
Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds has finally clicked with me. Simultaneously a masterful ode to the different flourishes and details of language as well as a fantastical revision of history; Tarantino's overindulgent WWII Western succeeds because of the staggering breadth of its screenplay and the spectacular bursts of the theatrical.
I guess my only defense is that the film was so jam-packed with information that it flew over my head, but honestly even that sounds like a cop out. Sooner or later, you have to bow down to Tarantino unreservedly, and I thought the extent of my adoration had been used up by Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained. Boy was I wrong.
What love looks like.
i still despise trashitino but this movie gave me so much anxiety but i kinda loved it?? also the Queens of Acting melanie and diane left me SHOOK
dude hehe this film is so funny hehe, if we killed hitler like in the film the world would be a better place with peace :-) hehe!
hehe it has a swear word in it and they are killing nice innocent nazis like wtf man poor nazi men getting killed by retarded brainwashed americans and the all powerful jews also good work tortallini
I am not quite sure what I liked about this. It was brutal, interesting and well written. An alternate take on history. Its really interesting the world this takes place in. My favorite part though had to be Christoph Waltz, what a performance. I hated him, yet loved him and felt very conflicted about him and it made the ending both satisfying and irritating. The whole idea of this felt really cool and it was just really interesting to see this different take on history. The world Tarantino has created is a very interesting world.
MELANIE LAURENT REALLY DID THAT
What a hot masterpiece.
Wow. Just wow. I didn't really know what to expect when I started watching this. I've already seen so many WWII movies before and I thought it wouldn't be any different from the others, but my expectations were exceed greatly. The acting was on point in every way and I was entertained the whole time. Each character made me want to learn more about them, like they could have a separate movie for each of them. I really felt like I wanted to be apart of Inglourious Basterds while watching them movie. Please watch this movie!!!!
