    Any Quentin Tarantino movie is going to be pretty good, but this movie was probably my least favorite of his. A few tense scenes and an amazing performance by Christoph Waltz is what prevents me from giving this a lower rating.

    Quentin Taratino is not my cup of tea. Although some of his movies have merit, as an auteur I find him pretentious. However, even though this film does have a powerful, tense story to tell, it is almost let down by QT's continued insistence on an immature serio-comical tone that hardly produces laughs (except the scene where Brad Pitt is supposed to be speaking Italian, which was sidesplitting), and a completely anachronistic soundtrack that reminds us of Sergio Leone's Westerns.…

    It’s often pure joy to watch Tarantino's films. He is just such a superb and interesting filmmaker that always brings something new to the table, always shocks and surprises. I noticed how many narrative shifts and leaps there were in this film and it was a reminder of just how screenplays SHOULD be written. Tarantino is a master of creating tension with scenes he allows to breathe to such an extent that they become more intimate and you feel like…

    really good, typical tarrentino, but not his best

    Though some of the performances shine and it still has that enjoyable Tarantino edge, half the time Inglorious Basterds is either too silly or too dull. When they aren't laughably over-the-top (for better or worse) most scenes are simply biding time until the inevitable occurs which makes for a tense albeit a little boring viewing experience, but when the slow build up is over, it normally delivers a fun pay off. Can't say I enjoyed this a ton but I certainly don't regret watching it.

    Tarantino's indulgence in WWII history could have been great had it not been for the film's third act. It's one thing to set fictional events in a historic setting. It's another to mess with the actual history. As much as it makes for a poetic ending, it was simply bizarre.

    Tarantino's writing creates a curious mix of heavy drama with jarring comedy, and together with such a powerful backdrop, makes a picture that is fresh and entertaining, while leaving a very dark undertone.

    Qualified success. It's an interesting change in this day and age to have a gleeful, unrepentent war movie, though the juvenile revenge fantasy portrayal of the Jewish unit (not helped by Brad Pitt's cartoony performance - someone reset that dislocated jaw for the lad, please) won't be to all tastes.

    There's a lot of largely unnecessary chaff in the script (Michael Fassbender's character really doesn't do much beyond kill twenty minutes and the subplot with Daniel Bruhl also feels like…

    Tarantino might be Satan's Ball Sack but Basterds is hugely entertaining, especially Pitt.

    "You know somethin', Utivich? I think this just might be my masterpiece."

    So says Brad Pitt at the end of Inglourious Basterds, and I must say, I have to agree: Inglorious Basterds feels, to me, like Tarantino's masterpiece. It may not be as rawly quotable as Pulp Fiction, as quirky and violent as Kill Bill, or as intense as Reservoir Dogs, but it still carries the trademark Tarantino ultra-violence, snappy dialogue, and anachronistic soundtrack. It does this without seeming overly…

    THE GIST: Quentin Tarantino has defined himself as an auteur in the good sense of the word. His films have gone on to hallow the halls of the Cinematic Hall of Fame, but this, as a character says in the very film, may be his masterpiece. Full of rich, wonderful characters, careful plotting, a brilliant script, and unbelievably good performances (specifically from Christoph Waltz as the treacherous Nazi commander Hans Landa and Melanie Laurent as Shoshanna, the Jewish escapee). INGLOURIOUS…
