REVIEW: Inglourious Basterds

Leave a comment

basterdsQuentin Tarantino, just about everyone should know the name by now he’s brought us such movies as Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill, and Death Proof. Inglorious Basterds is the war movie that Quentin was rumored to have been writing for years now and it’s finally here. It has a few things every Tarantino movie has, a cast that’s scattered with both big name actors (Brad Pitt) and unknowns, both of which do great jobs. We’ve also got a ton of dialog, then again it is a Tarantino movie so you should be expecting that, if you’re not then, well what the fuck are you thinking? One thing that seems to be missing here is it doesn’t appear we have the actor that use to be great that we haven’t seen for a while, normally a staple in Tarantino’s movies, but that’s ok, instead we get Eli Roth as “The Bear Jew”, fair trade. Basically what we’ve got is a team of Jewish solders terrorizing Nazi’s. They catch em, they kill em, and they scalp em. Or if they’re lucky they carve a swastika into their forehead and let em go. That’s only part of the story because we’ve also go the story of a Jewish girl that escaped and has setup shop as owner of a local theater, when a screening of a new German movie is set to happen at her place a plan for revenge is put into action here. What you don’t get in traditional war movies such as big battle scenes in this movie it’s made up for in other awesomeness (for once I won’t give it away here). All in all we’ve got another great movie from one of the biggest cult directors around, we’ll see if this one flips in the box office like the rest of them or if this will be a breakout hit. Oh and the soundtrack rules (cept one song) too.
