Definately Not A Waste Of Money.

Wow! What a movie, I did not expect this movie to hold mine and my wife’s attention throughout the whole 2 ½ hour movie. Especially since it is about killing Nazis, our brother in law is Jewish so this can be a touchy subject in our family. This Movie was written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, and as usual he does an excellent job. It looked like it was going to be difficult to pass off as a comedy, but if you get the right people to fill the cast then you will not have any problems directing this film. Usually there are a lot of shows that will tease you with bits and pieces of TV advertisements about the movie, but that is not the case here. What you see on TV is only a little bit about the movie there is a lot more to come when you come to see this show.

This take place in WWII when the Nazis were in France and there was a group of rogue group that were going around killing Nazi soldiers to pay them back for all of the jewish people that they were killing. Brad Pitt plays the part of the lead rogue Lieutenant Aldo Raine who is in charge of training all of the rest of his people and then gets dropped into the path of the enemy, and behind enemy lines. They did not stop in their unhuman killing ways just because the Germans heard about them. The German soldiers came to fear the group known as the Inglourious Basterds or “The Basterds”.

There was a lot of star power just like the director was and they include; Brad Pitt who plays Lt. Aldo Raine, Melenie Laurent plays the theater owner Shosanna Dreyfus, Christoph Waltz plays Col. Hans Landa who was hated by all jews and called the jew hunter, Eli Roth plays Sgt. Donny Donowitz, Micheal Fassbender plays Lt. Archie Hicox, Diane Kruger plays Bridget von Hammersmark and is a double agent/german actress, Daniel Bruhl plays Pvt. Frederick Zoller the star of the theater, Til Schweiger plays Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz, Gedeon Burkhard plays Cpl. Wilhelm Wicki, Jacki Ido plays Marcel, B.J. Novak plays Pfc. Smithson Utivich, Omar Doom plays Pfc. Omar Ulmer, August Diehi plays Major Dieter Hellstrom, Dennis Menochet plays Perrier LaPadite, Syvelster GRoth plays Joseph Goebbels and a lot of other extras. With all of these cast members put together in one movie it is well worth your money to sit and laugh at all of the antics that Brad Pitt puts them through. Lot of action and strong langusge so be care ful if you want to take your kids to see this movie. I would not take my daughter to see this. The director to history that would at any other time make you mad at what happens to the jewish people he makes us laugh at the Nazis.

You will find a lot of funny on e line bits that Quentin had to dream up to keep the dialog interesting. Every time that Brad pit does a movie it seems like it turns into gold, for years I have watched him grow into one of the top actors in the business and he does not let us down in this movie. This movie will jump back and forth with sub-titles and different languages which include English, German, Italian, and French, this will probably get a little confusing throughout the movie but they will keep you laughing so it was not that much bothersome through the movie. Sometimes just when you think that you had figured everything out it turns around to a different language but they throw a few one line and slapstick in the mix and you soon forget what language they were speaking.

The film does not stop moving it continues to stay fresh and not become stagnant, they do this with a lot of special affects and action scenes.

You need to be aware, there are a lot of gruesome scenes where they scalp a lot of the Germans so the scenes are not for the weak of heart, there is a lot of violence to go around. Even though this movie will probably not win any awards I still liked it and it kept me laughing throughout the whole movie. I do not think that it is worth five stars but it certainly will not be a waste of your money. If you want a good laugh then take the time out to go and see this show. You could probably give this 3 stars just because of the brilliant acting and directing that had to take place to make this movie.


Movie Mood: Guy Movie
Viewing Method: Other
Film Completeness: A few glitches, but mostly complete.
Worst Part of this Film: Nothing

Definately Not A Waste Of Money. Definately Not A Waste Of Money. Definately Not A Waste Of Money. Definately Not A Waste Of Money.

**** out of ****    The Quentin Tarantino-directed "Inglourious Basterds" is not much unlike the wise-cracking genius of modern cinema's other features. It's a one big old fan film; another one of Tarantino's great homages to the many things that he loves. Once again, he shows his admiration of his inspirations through music choice, camera angles, and an overwhelming supply of movie references. While there are plenty of other directors who do this, Tarantino does it differently; …

Reminded me that I love Tarantino's work!
What a fantastic film!  I see a lot of movies, but not very many "films", if you know what I mean.  This one was an awesome ride, that ranged from incredibly tense to laugh out loud funny, to genuinely moving.       Some quick takeaways & a few of my favorite things:   classic tarantino devices used, like the "character" format, a la Resevoir Dogs and Kill Bill TOTALLY get why Christolph Waltz won that Oscar -- PHENOMENAL performance... …

Ingloruious Basterds (I think I spelled that incorrectly) was the best movie I've seen all year. This was my first QT movie , and I went into it with trepidation, expecting cartoonish violence and macho muscularity without much depth. What I got was masterful moving picture making. Every scene works (even the one intentionally--and self-mockingly?--cartoonishly violent "Bear Jew" scene) but the opening scene builds so slowly and perfectly that it matches anything Hitchcock crafted in its beauty, …

   Quentin Tarantino, taking inspiration from the 1978 Italian film “Inglorious Bastards“, “INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS” (now renamed “Basterds”) is the latest installment from the acclaimed director. “Inglourious Basterds” isn’t just a war film, it is a war film with the Tarantino signature that features stupendous dialogue, incredibly opaque plotting, an anarchistic soundtrack (even worms in a David Bowie song from “Cat People“), …

   I'll save you time.  You don't have to read the rest of this review to know how I feel.  I loved this movie.      There is so much to love about this movie and I will try to explain my perspective without the use of spoiler because I want everyone to see and experience this movie for themselves.  Before we go any further, here is the trailer:            See what I mean.  I knew from the trailer …

A star turn for Michael Fassbender but all the good lines belonged to Brad Pitt (and there are half a dozen howlingly funny lines).

Inglorious Basterds
Seeing Inglorious Basterds was an interesting viewing experience for me.  Not because anything crazy happened, but because of the ways in which the film kept pulling me back in.  While I thoroughly enjoyed Basterds, there were definitely times I was asking myself, "what is this leading up to?" which I think a lot of people were asking about Death Proof .  Of course the minute I asked myself this, everything came together and made me ecstatic about the current scene. …

You might think Tarantino glorifies violence, but I think that's just the way he expresses his ideas
   I am a huge QT fan so I went expecting a lot from this film. The movie is simply an experience and Tarantino immerses you into this world.   I honestly am very surprised that there are so many comments stating this is a bad movie and Tarantino trash. I understand not everyone loves QT but how can you not appreciate the writing and acting in this film. The film, as most of us know by now, is a WWII revenge saga that follows a small unit of Jewish-American soldiers as they wreak …

INGLORIOUS BASTERDS       As any one can tell you I am a huge QT fan and basically own everything he has been a part of. So of course when this film was released I had to go see it and the second it was out on DVD/BLU-RAY I had to own it. I knew from the moment this film was announced that it would be another QT classic with out a doubt. Say what you will but it was a major success and you can't discount that at all. I of course knew that I would love this film and of course …

Tarantino's film manifesto is a bit too theoretical, but still a great flick.

About this movie


Inglorious Bastards

Inglorious Bastards is a 2009 war film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino.  It was released on August 21st 2009.  It stars Brad Pitt, Eli Roth, Diane Kruger and Christopher Waltz.


Although Quentin Tarantino has cherished Enzo G. Castellari's 1978 "macaroni" war flickThe Inglorious Bastardsfor most of his film-geek life, his ownInglourious Basterdsis no remake. Instead, as hinted by the Tarantino-esque misspelling, this is a lunatic fantasia of WWII, a brazen re-imagining of both history and the behind-enemy-lines war film subgenre. There's a Dirty Not-Quite-Dozen of mostly Jewish commandos, led by a Tennessee good ol' boy named Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) who reckons each warrior owes him one hundred Nazi scalps--and he means that literally. Even as Raine's band strikes terror into the Nazi occupiers of France, a diabolically smart and self-assured German officer named Landa (Christoph Waltz) is busy validating his own legend as "The Jew Hunter." Along the way, he wipes out the rural family of a grave young girl (Melanie Laurent) who will reappear years later in Paris, dreaming of vengeance on an epic scale.

Now, this isn't one more big-screen comic book. As the masterly opening sequence reaffirms, Tarantino is a true filmmaker, with a deep respect for the integrity of screen space and the tension that can accumulate in contemplating two men seated at a table having a polite conversation.
