    On his best days - and I freely admit he has awful ones. It's what happens when you blow a chuck of your Kill Bill budget on blow and Chinese hookers - watching a Quentin Tarantino movie is like going out to a seven-course gourmet dinner with someone who both understands and deeply appreciates food. Not a chef, who could be judgey or unable to leave work at home; not a food snob, who, regardless of what the salad is,…

    Some thoughts on Quentin Tarantino:
    This movie took me by surprise and Tarantino hadn't done that, for me, since Pulp Fiction. I can distinctly remember the feeling of awe and glee I felt in the theater when I realized he was actually going to kill Hitler. For some reason I didn't think he was going to re-write history, so when he did I had a genuine gut reaction to it and I loved it! And of course I've re-watched it…

    Tarantino's best after Pulp Fiction and no less innovative, visceral or well-written and acted (though not quite the gamechanger which is why Pulp Fiction will likely always be top). Especially notable for essentially introducing Christoph Waltz to the world as the instantly iconic Hans Landa, as well as the luminous Melanie Laurent. And the fact that Tarantino does not insert himself into the movie is one of the many reasons this film trumps Django, as far as his revisionist histories are concerned.

    Inglourious Basterds is a fine example of Quentin Tarantino trying his hand at revisionist history and for the most part, succeeding. The dialogue, character driven narrative, and cinematography are outstanding, but the film meanders a little too much for my liking here and there, and culminates rather underwhelmingly. However, the film showcases so many small glimpses of Tarantino's directorial genius and unadulterated love for cinema at so many different moments, that even if all the elements don't quite mesh together well as a cohesive whole, it is a somewhat forgivable offense.

    Time for an unpopular opinion.

    It's hard for me to justify a poor rating in the face of overwhelming praise. Every argument made for a film's success doesn't always ring true for me. The aspects people laud are often ones of which I'm critical. And it's not always easy to support reasoning that you can't completely sort out in your mind. Sometimes you just don't enjoy a film, without an easy cop out on which you can base your rationale.…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The final shot of Inglourious Basterds is Lieutenant Aldo Raine, having just carved a swastika into the head of SS Colonel Hans Landa, declaring "This might just be my masterpiece".Ostensibly referring the mutilation Raine has just committed, one cannot help but feel these a truly the words of writer/director Quentin Tarantino, and in actuality refer to the film itself. And if the film itself is what the words refer to, then Tarantino is most definitely correct.

    Tarantino's flourishes as a…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Waltz takes this film to another level. First in the opening and later in the cafe and the cinema. Nothing easy about giving charisma to a killer. His performance is thrilling.

    I love Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, and Mike Myers, too.

    Samuel L. Jackson's voice over brings the same Royal With Cheese we loved so much in Pulp Fiction.

    The violence is over the top. Either you can get on board with it or you can't. Django would take it…

    Inglourious Basterds is the most accomplished film of Quentin Tarantino's long and storied career, both as a director and as a screenwriter. It isn't as groundbreaking as Pulp Fiction was back in 94, but it is a great film nonetheless.

    An homage to both old-school war movies and a seldom seen subgenre of Nazisploitation (as well as more nods to the Spaghetti Western), Basterds is easily the most entertaining film of Tarantino's in recent years. It recaptures the youthful energy…

    Typical Tarantino, but not among his best, Inglorious Basterds once again shows the power of dialogue. It's funny, but not as funny as some other of his movies. The theater fire scene is great.
