Although Inglourious Basterds is not the best representation of Tarantino's genius, he can do no wrong, even if it is sometimes misguided and laborious.
August 21, 2009
Tarantino perfectly balances brilliantly written dialogue with completely insane violence. I was pumping my fist in the air the entire time.
August 21, 2009
Quentin Tarantino's dual loves of vengeance and cinema have never had a purer expression than the face of a Jewish cinematheque owner projected Oz-like onto the smoke of Nazis aflame.
August 21, 2009
The final impression of the movie - that it's crass, juvenile and profoundly distasteful - overrides its more enjoyable moments.
August 21, 2009
Once again, Tarantino refuses to deliver something easily dissected or discussed, something that has made him one of the most polarizing filmmakers of the last two decades. If only there were more like him.

Parental Content Review
August 21, 2009
Tarantino engages with the power of language, not only spoken but cinematic language in particular. He relishes the way movies speak to an audience, the manipulative power of cinematic dialect to tell facts differently, and how film language can replace m

Despite the trailer's first impressions, Inglourious Basterds is much more than Brad Pitt with a funny accent and a few Hitler-stache cameos.
August 21, 2009
Tarantino seems to have gotten high on the fumes of his own (admittedly addictive) creation here and just not known when to quit.
August 21, 2009
For anyone who has been hoping to see Tarantino back at the top of his game, the must-see movie of the summer has finally arrived.
August 21, 2009
This exploitation epic is a unique beast that molests history, wrong-foots expectations and royally entertains. The movies' coolest Basterd is back on his game.
August 21, 2009
Lively and literate, Inglourious Basterds feels fresher than any Tarantino film in a while. Even so, smart as his writing is, it wouldn't kill him to see a blue pencil now and again.
August 21, 2009
Inglourious Basterds is sprawling, flawed and hugely self-indulgent. It's also hugely enjoyable.
August 21, 2009
Inglourious Basterds is sporadically enjoyable, but it's also a dismal squandering of a once-promising talent.
August 21, 2009
His latest is too long, too talkative and a touch too self-indulgent. But it's a heck of a lot better than anything he's done since Pulp.
August 21, 2009
The endless twists and turns coupled with Tarantino's trademark black comedy help take the edge off the violence a little.
August 21, 2009
Whirled around the floor of a story that goes absolutely nowhere, contains no human verities, has no significant heft as historical drama, yet still proves, now and then, an entertaining piece of Pop Disco Art from the cinema's most talented tease.
August 21, 2009
Sensationally entertaining, relentlessly suspenseful and thrilling with a terrific ensemble cast and wickedly funny and witty dialogue. Tarantino fans rejoice!
August 21, 2009
What really makes Inglourious Basterds stick out like a Royale with cheese...is its sheer playfulness. Tarantino does digress, as is his wont, but these are not the irritating indulgences they were in Kill Bill.
August 21, 2009
If the accomplishment of this first scene were upheld throughout then we might have a masterpiece on our hands. Alas, it is uneven as well as unpredictable.
