Bidness is a-boomin'

I love this movie -- what could be better than killin' Nazis!?! It was great fun to watch the story unfold, because the characters, although steerotyped, were so well-played (Brad Pitt and the Herr Landa actor should get Oscar nominations) and even though a lot of the events were predictable, they "worked." Tarantino manages to use stereotypes and predicable plot developments in a way that still lets his movies entertain and engage -- an unlikely quality for a director. This movie is one of his more obvious good guys/bad guys films (no way anyone thinks Nazis are the good guys, right?), but again, the predictability and stereotypes work. For this film, I especially liked that the audience was aware of the two cinema-related plans but the characters did not realize anything about each other's plans. In the end the two plans converge pretty smoothly in spite iof the fact that several key players don't quite fullfill their duties. Overall, one of Tarantino's best films. Go see it!

Just saw this at a midnight showing, and it was a great movie. Plot was awesome, and had a lot of build up before the action scenes which may turn people off, but QT does a great job of adding some "comedy" to keep it from getting boring, and it was totally worth going to see at a midnight show. You will not be disappointed if you see this movie, by far one of the best movies of the year, even though there hasn't been much out there this summer. Also might I add, the ending will not disappoint you, it is a great movie from start to finish, and I would pay to see it again instead of wasting it on "Bruno" or some other crap that has been in theaters lately. GO SEE IT!!!

A vintage Tarantino Bloodbath, very graphic, not for young kids or the squeamish. Don't look for any historical accuracy, this is a very entertaining alternate history story. Brad Pitt is hilarious as Lt. Aldo Raine, his merry band of "Basterds" are every Nazi's Nightmare! It's like Kill Bill set in Nazi Occupied France. If you can accept it for what it is (A QT Masterpiece) you will love it!

Quentin is a genious!!! This movie is NOT based on history (hellooo....Cyclonebill1966!!) it's fun fiction!! What person in their right mind wouldn't want to see this happen to the nazii's? This is balls out, dirty, spaghetti western-esque "horror/comedy", in this movie. Know what you're getting into otherwise, don't bother if you're just going to bash it!! This is awesome!! I WISH this crew were around during those times!!

Man, I wish people would lighten up about it not being historical. Tarantino basically takes command of history that everyone already knows about Hitlers bunker and turns it around to a "what if" with kick *** entertainment. Loved It!!! Lighten up people...Be entertained..... Runnerrob64
