    after rewatching this for the first time i think i can say it's def my fav out of tarantino's filmography. most of his films have like a 'dip' in the middle where i get super bored but this one and kill bill vol.1 are the only ones that don't have that for me. all the plots/subplots/chapters seem so seamless and perfect and like, i know that's the point, but i am honestly in awe at how flawless it works out. wow. i really love this film.

    Inglourious Basterds SPOILER Review

    This movie is incredible but not as good (and only slightly) The Departed. This is taking nothing away from Basterds but I watched them for the first time back to back. I am in love with Quentin Tarantino, he is amazing with his screenplays and action. Brad Pitt was slightly underused but absolutely incredible. Brad Pitt was extremely funny and his accent was always their and just sounded incredible.

    Tarantino's violence is very toned down until…

    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…

    Phenomenal film, one of my absolute favourites. Smart, funny, violent, and full of style. Channels Tarantino's fondness for spaghetti westerns. Looks great, and comes with great performances.

    Much talkier than the trailer might let on, and interestingly it's mostly not in English (instead in French or German). The titular 'Basterds' are only one set of characters in multiple plot lines. It's also more of a film about film than it is about history.

    Diane Kruger's slightly exaggerated German accent never ceases to delight me.

    English tl;dr
    Probably only Tarantino could afford something like this. Absolutely unfazed he let's the very entrance of his movie to be played out as a 20 minute long dialogue sequence between two actors. It's a scene that might get studied by aspiring future screenplay writers and that perfectly sets up the tone for the rest of the movie. In the moment in which Hans Landa - one of the most engaging statures that got spit out back from the…

    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.

    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 is my favorite film from writer/director Quentin Tarantino and is one of my personal favorite films of all time. It has perfect pacing, enthralling dialogue, brilliant acting, and a truly fascinating subject.

    The tension that it is able to build in the opening scene alone is breath taking, but it continues to ramp up the stakes and the risks in a way that I have never seen before. For example the tavern scene lasts nearly 30min and is almost…
