**** 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 …

A MASTERPIECE
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 …

One Upon a Time...In Nazi Occupied France...The Basterds Came to Blu-ray!
With such an amazing year past us film wise, there are just some movies that you absolutely have to own, Inglourious Basterds being one of them.  What Quentin Tarantino did with the World War II genre of films was take it, make an amazing fairy tale story out of it and have it be the be all end all of WWII films.  After a film like Inglourious Basterds, there really isn't much more to do with the genre.  With the 2010 Oscars fast approaching, Basterds is sure to be in the mix …

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

   Tarrentino brings World War II Paris to life in a new fashion.  A young Jewish girl escapes a search of a farmhouse by Nazis and makes her way to Paris.  Somehow she gets the identity of Emanuelle, an owner of one of the top Paris movie houses.  One day she is changing the titles on the marquee when she is approached by a young German soldier.  He becomes smitten with her but she tries being cold back to him to no avail.  It turns out he is somewhat of a big …

A Nazi Officer is about to meet his fate
*Spoilers may follow*      Inglorious Basterds is NOT a World War II movie, sure it takes place in Europe in the early 40's, it has it's noted historical figures like Hitler and Goebels but as far as a movie where it's clean cut hero grabs his M1 Garand and hollers "follow me!" into battle and plans his next move from the trenches against screaming opposition, this is not.  This is WW II the comic book even with a couple of moments having an author of …

In the past, Quentin Tarantino has been well known primarily for his unique style and writing abilities. His films are usually separated by many years, however.  At least since Jackie Brown.  We had to wait six years for Kill Bill.  And after Volume 2 was done, we had to wait five years for this.  But while the wait for Tarantino's films can be long it is usually worthwhile to Tarantino fans.  That sort of gives Inglourious Basterds a label all on its own.  If you're …

Out of all his film this is Tarantino's masterpiece......
Once Upon a time in Nazi occupied France the German's were flooding the land, destroying everything and anyone who got in there path they plunder, pillaged, and ransacked a few villages while merrily laughing all the while. The Americans were furious and quite intuitive on how to send the German is   a message. Therefore, they gathered up a team of rag tag Jewish-American soldiers and sent them behind enemy lines to cause the German's some mayhem. They  came, they saw, they killed  …

What happens when you take "Wake Island" (a great WWII Hollywood propaganda film), the timeless "Casablanca", the superb fantasy adventure "The Dirty Dozen" and a few other war films that glorify war and add Quentin Tarantino's rather vivid imagination to the mix?     You get "Inglorious Basterds", a fantasy war thriller that pays homage to all the great films of war as glorious adventure genre with an outlandish plot that Tarentino gets to work.     The story …

I saw Inglourious Basterds at a midnight screening and I was unimpressed with the movie. Seems like Tarantino has run out of ideas and sharp dialog. He promised a war movie in the style of an Italian western.  All I saw was a pastiche of Italian westerns, bad humor and long drawn out dialog that lacked any of his previous films unique wit.  Being a fan of pop culture Tarantino peppers the script with a lot of it from the 30's and 40's (yes it seems really forced).  If you have seen …

One of the great pleasures of Quentin Tarantino movies is the wonderfully inventive casting that he employs. In PULP FICTION, he revived the career of John Travolta, made Samuel Jackson a star, pushed Bruce Willis into another echelon and even helped get Ving Rhames off to a good start. In JACKIE BROWN, he burnished Pam Grier & Robert Forster's careers. In KILL BILL, he reinvented Uma Thurman and reinvigorated David Carradine. Even in DEATH PROOF, he introduced the world to the amazing stuntwoman …

Pros: Well crafted, acting (including Pitt), extra points for the subtitles, Quentin     Cons: Wtf happened to all the Nazi killin'?     The Bottom Line: A good movie, and yet still disappointing in some ways.     One of the things I can't stand in this world is when a movie trailer completely misleads me.  I saw the trailer and I thought it was going to be Nazi killing and excitement the whole way.  You know, the way Tarantino …

Following the brilliant 'Deathproof', another classic to add to The Tarantino Canon.

Tarantino gives an amazing historical fiction portrayal that had me pumped from the first seconds of hidden jews to the scene at the cinema
