Definitely Tarantino's best masterpiece since Pulp Fiction. Christoph Waltz makes the whole movie. Definitely plays one of the all time best movie characters thanks to the superb Quentin Tarantino with his fabulous screenplay that only he can conjure up.

If the Tomatometer had 6 stars only for one movie, I would use it for this one.

Filled with entertainment, an amazing performance by Brad Pit and arguably one of the best villains a movie has ever had; Inglorious Basterds must be the ultimate absurd alternative history movie.

I have seen this twice already. Mostly b/c we saw it so late opening night I missed a few moments to head nods... Seeing it a second time, and not missing much - it was a well done fiction... a fantasy fiction of revenge and vulgar violence.

Cinematic, was brilliant - naturally, since Q knows how to paint this canvass well. Acting was outstanding, and the whole thing was superb - just very difficult to watch throughout - even for me.

Quinten Tarantino writes and directs his latest film Inglorious Bastards. The film sets place in the heart of World War II and opens with a Colonel Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz) who is searching for Jews across Nazi occupied France. He is known as the Jew Hunter and he kills the family of a young Shosanna (Melanie Laurent). Many years later, Shosanna is the owner of a small cinema under a new name Emmanuelle. She is being courted by a young Nazi war hero who begs to have the premiere of his new movie at her small cinema.

As with most Tarantino there many arcs, and another arc involves Lt. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt). He leads a group of notorious Nazi killers known as the Inglorious Bastards. Each one of the bastards has a known identity and nickname for their methods such as Donny Donowitz who does so with a baseball bat. As a team, they go around Germany ruthlessly killing Germans in hope to spread the word of their infamy, and rouse fear in the Nazi's. When they discover the premiere of the new film premiere at the small cinema, the two plot points converge in a hope to kill all of the Nazis including Hitler himself at the event.

Inglorious Bastards is one of Tarantino's finest films. The film features larger than life characters, excellent performances, and typical Tarantino sense of drama and grandeur that only he can pull off. Waltz simply ties the film together and rightfully wins Best Oscar for a supporting role. Pitt does a good job balancing comedy and wit as the stubborn and grisly war hero. The film is long and has some slow scenes to help build up drama and intensity, but they work well and are fitting in this film and help advance the plot. Some of these scenes are really some of the best scenes in the film. These include the film's opener, and a scene where Emmanuelle is being slowly interrogated by Hans Landa as the two eat strudel and smoke cigarettes. Combined with Tarantino like explosive finish, Inglorious Bastards will likely entertain most Tarantino fans and movie goers alike.

Another genialiity of Quentin Tarantino. This movie took some inspiration from The Inglorious Basterds(1978), but it is not a remake, per sà (C). The plot: In 1941, Colonel Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz) arrives at a farm in France to interrogate the owner about some rumors that he is hiding a Jewish family. Landa ends up killing the family and all the Jewish family hiden underneath the farme's house floor. Everyone get killed, except Shosanna Dreyfus (Mà (C)lanie Laurent).
In 1944, an special force officer, Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) recruits a team of eight Jewish-American soldiers for a mission to go behind enemy lines to hunt German Nazi soldiers. He tells the soldiers that they each owe him 100 Nazi scalps. They are oreded to take no prisoners. For all this, they will be more known as the 'Basterds' Soon, Adolf Hitler (Martin Wuttke) will know about them, because any survivor that they decide to leave will be marked with a swastika on his forehead. One of the survivors tell Hitler how brutal the Basterds are, and especially Sergeant Donny Donowitz (Eli Roth), known by the Germans as "The Bear Jew" who beats them using a baseball bat.
IShosanna is known now as "Emmanuelle Mimieux" and she operates a cinema in Paris. She meets Fredrick Zoller (Daniel Brà 1/4hl), a German sniper and a national hero for the Nazis. The party decides to cellebrate Zoller with a movie to be played in Shosanna's cinema.Joseph Goebbels (Sylvester Groth) and Hitler will attend to the premiere. They don't know that Shosanna plans to get rid of all the nazis and their supporters in the cinema that same evening.
Meanwhile the Basterds plan to blow the cinema and they will plan to kill Hitler, Goebbels and the main board members of the Nazi party and the premiere of the movie might be their best chance to do it. AWESOME MOVIE. FIVE STARS!

Christoph Waltz is damn near perfect.

Violent, over the top, and the dialogue sequences are fixating. However, Inglorious Bastards is at its best when Christoph Waltz and Brad Pitt are on screen.

Re-watch. Quality over the top war flick. Name taken from the classic 1978 Fred Williamson classic and a cameo from its director Enzo G. Castellari. The opening scene is really intense and at times unbearable.Waltz in Hans Lander gives us one of cinemas most memorable villains. The basement scene is another great highlight. Soundtrack is immense with Tarantino giving great use of Morricone, Billy Preston 'Slaughter' theme tune and Bowie's Cat People. A serious twitch off Kruger and Laurent. Good cameo from Mike Myers and Fassbender's the balls.

WW II gets the Tarantino treatment! Inglourious Basterds
offers a precise scope on WW II by being whimsical and brutal.

There are many angles, tones, and stories tackled over the past years that have allowed every WW II film since then to be unique, refreshing, and entertaining.You might think we've exhausted the genre but that's not the case here, though Inglorious Basterds still offer the basic elements of a war movie (WWII movie as well) but with the enchanments of Tarantino that fans will recognize and love.

Inglourious Basterds presents characters and circumstances that aren't
complex. Despite it being a war movie, Tarantino keeps it simple and thorough but not without substance. This allows a comfortable and justifiable conclusion to the narratives. You might think that the American-led team by Brad Pitt are the main attraction, but don't be mislead, the narrative of the French Shosanna (Melanie Laurent) is significant.

What makes this an entertaining watch is that it doens't present such a noble and courageous angle on war, the movie is just bloody good fun (the characters are having fun too).That's the case anyway for the Americans here, but for Shosanna, offers a neat fantasy revenge epic that's familiar but inviting
to watch anyway.

The morbid sense of humor in this movie is normally something which might be a bit unwelcome... however, it's Nazis. But the thing that really sets this movie apart is it's masterpiece of a score.

Tarantino one again making an incredible movie that will keep you at the edge of the seat for a whole lot of time.

This film is a travesty. It is an insult to the memory of the people who died fighting the Germans. That it is so highly rated appalls me. It makes Hogan's Heroes look like Citizen Kane. Yech.

Compared to Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill Vol. 1, this movie was a steam pile of c**p. So boring, poorly written, edited, and directed. I can't see why this got rated so highly. I am glad I did not pay to see this.

Cristoph Waltz, as a clever and manipulative Nazi foil for the rest of the protagonists, elevates this humorously violent Tarantino product from just being another sadistic, chaotic satire--this time of the Allies-German War during the 1940s. But, I must say that I am thoroughly entertained with all the dialogue and banter between these misfits, killers, and psychopaths.

I heard this movie was violent, awful, vulgar, and...funny?
December 15, 2016
Simplemente espectacular, la historia te atrapa desde el inicio de la película, tiene un desarrollo lento pero necesario e intrigante. Una pieza de arte de Tarantino y Brad Pitt y Michael Fassbender se roban el show.
