    "You probably heard we ain't in the prisoner-takin' business; we in the killin' Nazi business. And cousin, business is a-boomin'."

    The first 20 minutes are perfect. The story is interesting, especially the revenge sub-plot. The tone, tension, plot, and dialogue throughout are all excellent. Using three different languages in addition to English is impressive especially when less than half is in English. Melanie Laurent and Christoph Waltz both did an outstanding job. Even better the second time.

    No matter how strangely audacious or even arrogant it may seem when Pitt's Aldo Raine proclaims - as a mouthpiece for Tarantino - tongue-in-cheek in the final frame that this may be his masterpiece, he's actually right. This is the one. More than Pulp Fiction and more than Reservoir Dogs, this one holds up the best, uses the notorious style most effectively, and feels the least over-written. If that sounds like damning with faint praise, it shouldn't; I just often can have a slight aversion to Tarantino's overwrought-ness, and I never felt it here. This one's the masterpiece.

    Tarantino has made his best feature since Pulp Fiction, and considering how good Kill Bill Vol. 2 is, this is a glourious achievement.

    Well I certainly didn't expect this movie to be any good. I heard about it being good for so long I inevitably expected it to be overhyped to the extreme, and having finally watched it, I can say how wrong I was. I loved it from start to finish, theres not a bad actor in the whole thing, theres not as much action as I expected, but what there is is fantastic, highly recommended, now I'm gonna watch Django.

    The structure of Inglourious Basterds is deceptively simple, so much so that the 2 ½ hour film consists of merely a handful of scenes. But each scene features one of the fundamental elements of effective storytelling: change. The scenes start inert, the scenes grow, develop, evolve, explode through character interaction, specifically language, like chemicals carelessly thrown into a beaker (all dependent on strong, fully realized characters), then the scenes come to an unpredictable, yet satisfying conclusion that feels effortlessly inevitable.…

    My only complaint about this movie is I wish it was 10 hours long.

    Tied with Reservoir Dogs as QT's second best film behind you know what.

    I'll never forget the date I saw this film. Tarantino is the filmmaker of his generation. I wasn't old enough to have seen his first few films at the cinema, and this was the first one.

    I never got to see the likes of Kubrick, Chaplin, Hitchcock or early Scorsese films upon release, so the day I was able to see my favourite filmmaker in action, at the cinema, was one of the best days of my film life.
