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…
not to be a #downer but i gotta rewatch all my fav brad pitt movies before the fbi confirms that he abused his children and i become morally obligated to stop being in love with him :/
on a lighter note, *lt. aldo raine voice* i think this movie just might be a masterpiece
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'.
+ Christoph Waltz
+ Interessente und coole Dialoge...

Fazit : Einer der besseren Tarantino Filme
"Inglorious Basterds" is the perfect mash-up of bombastic hyperbole and genius comedic subtlety that Tarantino hadn't shown on its prime since Pulp Fiction. It's an energetic, innovative, funny and nuanced portrayal of a real event, but modifying history and doing whatever it wants without asking questions.
Quentin Tarantino's 2 1/2 hour war epic is not your garden variety war epic. It has very little time for sappy, clichéd sentimentality that you usually see in some war movies. There's no letters from home, no girl back home waiting for our heroes, no sweeping John Williams type musical score, none of that. Just a platoon of gung ho soldiers led by the badass general Aldo Ray (Brad Pitt) going on one major mission: killin' Nazis! Plus, there's a subplot involving a headstrong French woman (Melanié Laurent) seeking vengeance against Colonel Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz in his breakout Oscar-winning English language debut) and the entire Nazi party for the execution of the family that she was hiding…
Another great QT film. Pitt very good.
tag yourself I'm brad pitt headbutting christoph waltz and loving it!
One of my favorites
some people think this is Tarantino's best work, but i disagree. It like it, dont get me wrong, but it is not his best. He is usually a master of drawn out scenes of extended dialogue, but the opening scene is...not the best.
I want you all to vote on what you think are the greatest films of all time!
This is going…
