Alright guys....The movie is fiction......ok!!!!....and for you XBOX360 generations who never bothered to learn how to read in school.....shut up!!! I don't care if you can't read and don't like subtitles. The scenes that Tarantino created in this movie are intense, the acting was incredible, the story line very entertaining. I really loved this movie. You have to understand that I read the reviews that other movie goer's had left and it made me very hesitant to go.
This movie was engrossing from the beginning (you XBOXERS can look that up) I was very surprised to come out of there going.....wow.....that was a really good flick.
Basterds is a dialogue driven movie, highlighted with less then expected, over the top, violence!
So in a nutshell, if you can't read, can't comprehend the proper syntax of the American alphabet or are looking for continuous Halo like first person shooter gratification, I suggest staying at home and playing with your mouse.
The movie rocked..

Number 6. Classic Tarentino? NO. Brilliant? YES. This is not a WWII version of Kill Bill in any way. It is, however, loaded with brilliant, Tarantino-esque dialogue. He is one of the greatest, most influential writers on the planet, and this movie proves it. Might I also mention that the cinematography and camera direction is beyond brilliant. If this movie doesn't get recognized for anything else in the oscars, it will most certainly be recognized for cinematography and art direction! No recognition for Christopher Waltz would also be absurd. He was perfect, and terrifying. Although it was only on screen, I felt shivers when I saw him (even with his first appearance). This is a movie I will have to see a few more times to understand the full intention, but what else is new with a Tarantino film. Overall, this is not Pulp Fiction, but that doesn't mean it's not a masterpiece. It just means that Tarantino has dominated a new genre.

This Movie Will Make The Hit With Brad Pit Because Lots Of People Love Brad Pitt Just Like Megan Fox
Or If Like Jhonny Depp Or Hannah Montana Stars In A Movie I'll Get Lots Of Cash So I Think This Will Be A Great Movie But Seems Close To Public Enemies And Even Though Brad t Pitt Is In It I Think I'll Be Good

Wow... Inglorious Basterds was, well... glorious.
If you're looking for the History Channel documentary on the struggle against the Nazis in WW2... look elsewhere. If you hate Tarrantino's style and can't sit through another one of his movies... look elsewhere. If you're looking for a quiet flick to take your grandmother to after church... look elsewhere. If you're looking for a phenomenally well done, well cast movie with Tarrantino's fingerprint all over it, then watch out, because it's about to beat your brains out with a baseball bat.

We went to see this movie based on the preview, which made the movie look like an action movie. When we got there and were watching the movie I kept thinking, well, intro must be over soon, when is this thing going to get going. The dialog was not nearly as entertaining as pulp fiction or kill bill, the chapters were basically long long setups for a short bit of action. I didn't find it as gory as other people did, just boring as hell. I kept thinking that this was a nearly 3 hour movie that could have been 1 hour long. Brad Pitt was barely in the movie, his crew of basterds were not very well introduced so it was rather difficult to keep up with who was there and who wasn't. It just felt like the movie was a bad combination of about three or four different movies. The action scenes are great when you happen to run into one.
I've seen a lot of reviews saying that this was the best movie this summer...I don't understand where they get that from.
