this is truly one of the best movies ive seen in a long time, it covered all of my expectations of what i was to expect of a WW2 QT film. it has one of the most memorable villains, and brad pitt and eli roth were awesome as the basterds. ive seen it twice already and the 2nd time it only got better. people are gonna be quoting this movie for a long time

Awesome

Inglourious Basterds was awesome as fuck. It was so gripping and special props to Eli Roth and Waltz.... Waltz is the best villain of 2009. This one is QT's a lot better film than his last one. Good to see good movies coming out.

Amazing!!

What a great way close the summer!!! I've been really disapointed with the way these summer blockbusters raped my mind. Wolverine, T4, Transformers 2, G.I. Joe where all pure shit. The only saving grace to me was Up, The Hangover, D9, and Inglourious Basterds!

I'm a big QT fan, and loved all his movies, but Basterds exceeded even my expectations. Perfectly casted, fantastic dialog, intense scenes, and a great score. The movie even ended perfectly ***Spoiler*** when Aldo carved the swastica

Inglourious Basterds

Very boring...as everyone probably agrees on...it started very good but then fizzed toward the middle. WAY too long of boring dialog. If it wasn't for Brad Pitt and his acting this movie would have reallly sucked. Action was good though. Tarentino might be falling off..I read the script and it was WAY better than the movie, he removed alot from the script which would explained alot...

am i the only one that feels this movie is missing big chunks? Consider Hugos introduction. Where are all the other basterds introduction? Hugo get his name in big yellow letters in a very fuck yeah moment and then it never happens for any other characters.

Where is Sam Levine running down a corridor shooting a machine gun like in the trailer?? How do they cath BJ Novaks character??

PLEASE let there be a longer version of this on dvd. I deff think 40 minutes ended up on the cutting room

having read the script i can only hope he filmed what's missing... especially the story of the story of Bear Jew's bat. That was one of my favorite parts... and I thought Marcel was too easily convinced to blow himself he fuck up.

This movie started off incredibly well. Tense, great acting, and pretty strange, but I liked it a lot. And as the movie went on, it held up with this strangeness.

Dialogue was a little long, but I didn't mind it much at all. It brought the pace down a tad, but it was for an artistic purpose, so it was fine.

Overall I really enjoyed it. As some other people have said, the lack of focus on the Basterds was kind of surprising, but the climax made up for it.

Acting was incredible, writing was interesting, and that climax... wow. Talk about revenge :D

If I could say I was disappointed by anything, it's that the cinematography was not extravagant. I usually go into Quentin Tarantino movies expecting to be blown away by the cinematography, but there was nothing special in that department here. In fact, some of the shots I didn't like at all. But this is a minor quibble from me, and is entirely objectionable. Most people won't even care :P

It was good. I liked it more than all my friends, and I thought it was a very worthy addition to Quentin Tarantino's filmography. Very well-done, all things considered.

When I first left the theater I had a bad taste in my mouth. I couldn't help but compare it to Death Proof and all the long, boring dialogue they shared. But on the drive home I thought about it more and I realized that the dialogue was long in IB, but not pointless drivel like in Death Proof. And that was my biggest problem with IB, pacing.

I get what QT was doing, having these lengthy scenes. Most of the characters are undercover, of sorts, and they're often put in situations where, if they're not extremely careful, they're fucked. I felt like a lot of those scenes could have been tightened because it really drags at points.

My only other beef was the lack of Basterds. They're given this great introduction but then disappear for the bulk of the film. I think it would've been a lot better if there was more of them. Like, how awesome was the Hugo Stiglitz bit? He gets this wonderful set-up and then...nothing. Lame. I know some people who wanted more of Shoshana over the Basterds, and some, like me, who wanted more Basterds so I guess it's a matter of preference. The movie is called Inglourious BASTERDS, after all. Not saying it has to be all about them, but they should've been given a bigger chunk of screen time.

Overall, a pretty solid flick. Falls somewhere in the middle for me. Didn't knock my socks off like Pulp Fiction, but didn't bore me like Death Proof.

Easy boys...

Skellington - "Since when should we build our expectation on a trailer ? Most people knew it wasnt going to be straith up action." Having seen QT's movies I certainly wasn't expecting an action movie but it's certainly marketed as one. For me I think having the 'basterds' in the movie more would have made it better...
"QT never claimed to be making a remake. Only took inspiration from the premise" I knew he wasn't making a remake. Have you seen the original? Guess not. They have no

"QT never claimed to be making a remake. Only took inspiration from the premise" I knew he wasn't making a remake. Have you seen the original? Guess not. They have no relation at all except it's WW2 & '44. His inspiration is from the title only.
"They jump from 1941 to 1944 ... well, its called chronology, everything is implied, if you listened to the dialogues." And that would be...

Decent...but...

Not great. Pitt was great, and not in the movie enough and the Basterds were pushed to the side. Some good scenes -the opening scene on the farm and the bar scene, but too much talking. The trailers market this film as an action movie, but it's clearly not a straight up action flick. I thought I would be getting an over the top WW2 fantasy, but that did not materialize. Instead I got Col. Landa sitting around trying to intimidate everybody with his interrogation techniques. Once was good,

Instead I got Col. Landa sitting around trying to intimidate everybody with his interrogation techniques. Once was good, but it was tedious in the other moments.
My main issue with this movie is that QT lifts the title of the original just because it's a cool title (which it is). The orginal was a fun WW2 action movie, cheesy, but doesn't take itself too seriously. QT changes the spelling of the title, and his movie bears no resemblance to the original...at all. It's like someone takes an old movie, takes the name and passes it off as something else - Staar Warz! Don't shine me on about it's a "re-imaging."
One more thing, people dogged out McG for funky editing and story shortcomings for T4...what about here? The movie jumps from 1941 to 1944 without explanation. The characters which the movie is about are absent from most of the film. Needless narration. Random title screens. Wtf? Because its QT he gets a pass? I guess Landa's rat analogy was right in this case McG is the rat, so when people even get a whiff that he is making a movie they want to kill him...

I'm sorry did you just willingly make a comparison between Basterds and T4? Here's the difference; Basterds is original, well written, well acted, well directed. T4 is horribly written, badly acted, badly directed and has the worst ending in the history of Hollywood films.
The editing, action and dialogue in Basterds serves the story. In T4 everything serves the ridiculous action. Where the characters do things that make no sense just so we can see "something cool".

Finally, why does

Finally, why does something have to conform to a standard all the time? T4 conforms to the unoriginal standard of action movies, and it's horrible. Basterds doesn't. Narration out of place, characters that should survive dying etc.

Inglorious Bastards is for intelligent people who want something smart, funny and full of action.
T4 is for the mentally retarded.

It's was "alright"

I think it wasn't an excellent movie, but there were some great moments. With a LOT of not-so-great ones. So, I'm middle of the road on this movie.

I'm pretty sure the day I watched Pulp Fiction I became a man. It was also the day I took my first step into the relm of movies. QT has been my favourite director ever since, so I have like this totally biased 'QT is amazing' going on here.
But I really loved it. Thought it was so much better than KB and DP, but doesn't quite beat RD or PF. (I don't count JB as one of his movies... it was terrible imo).
I have to say though, QT has to be the most arrogant director ever. I mean there were so

Jackie Brown is QT's most mature work, the one that isnt filled with all his self-righteousness. How can you say its terrible ? You need a second watch, and stop being biased about the man.

Really impressed

I was expecting a WW2 action film in the vein of "The Dirty Dozen" but "Inglourious Basterds" is a completely different beast altogether, I didn't expect it to be so enjoyable or so suspenseful! And the performances! Tarantino sure has an eye for great actors - Christoph Waltz, Michael Fassbender, Daniel Brühl, Diane Kruger and Mélanie Laurent are all excellent in their roles. Pitt delivers the funniest scene I've seen all year.

Not only does it contain some of Tarantino's best writing but it's also visually stunning. The scene where Shosanna's face is projected onto the smoke - what an eye the man has (credit must also go to cinematographer Robert Richardson)!

I will not only see it again in the cinema, I will definitely pick it once it's released on Blu ray.

Good to have you back on form, Quentin!

I love Tarantino and his dialogue, but this film had some the owrst dialogue that lead to nowhere. It was a mess, but will not turn me off to future Tarantino work. I am a fan of his I just eel that this lates film had no inspiration, originality or strong structure. There was not enough focus on anything. I loved Jackie Brown, Pulp Fiction, Kill bill and True Romance. I would tell people to stay away from this one. I never thought I'd say something like that about Tarantino, but hey... they

Awesome!

Sure there was a lot of dialogue, but that's what its all about. its about the connections made by the characters in the story, and watching them react to the events of this crazy , and obviously fictional story. The movie was powerful in its own way, and payed homage to some of the best directors that have influenced Tarantino through the years.

LOVED IT!

It dragged a little at times, but the dialogue was so great, I didn't care. It hearkens back to his script for "True Romance" in that it sets up minor characters throughout and then pays them off (and back) by giving them great scenes later... Some excellent work but a great ensemble of (mostly unknown, stateside at least) actors... Many of whom I think we'll be seeing more of.

Going to definitely see it again. Really effin' good.

Four stars

Yep 4 out of 5 stars. One hell of a fun time at the movies. Can't wait for his next film.

Although I really enjoyed the brief action near the end of the Tavern scene, I would have loved a bit more. Espeacially from Hugo Stiglitz. A cool fight scene with Aldo Rayne would have been nice too. Oh well. Seen it twice already, and might go back for a third time. Wish Tarantino made movies more frequently.

Who here would love to see Tarantino do Sci-Fi!? I know I would.

I think this movie is so devisive because it's unlike anything we'd really expect from Tarantino.

It's not a fun pop culture mishmash, it's not filled with awesome action, etc.

I think this has more in common with the French New Wave than Kill Bill. And I think it's brilliant.

Tarantino perfected his form on this one. I think it's his best movie.

It was entertaining, fun, and shows signs of breaking that will lead to a huge train wreck for Tarantino. I really did like the film but in comparison to other things he's done I don't find it any better...not even close. To me Tarantino just made another movie not made another fucking unbelievable balls deep triple threat yadda yadda movie. Everything he's done I've loved and have so much respect for what he's done for cinema but after this i feel Quentin Tarantino is trying to be Quentin

well no shit he IS Tarantino. As a fan I do have a very high aspect of what I expect from his movies. Thing is...when you start seeing things that are in Tarantino's style but not executed in his fashion....then you have a problem. I don't think you got exactly what i meant at all by Tarantino trying to be Tarantino. All of his devoted fans and all of the brainless film watchers have created this godly view of what his style is. I agree with you on saying, "it's what we have come to

It does look like he made this movie from what we expect it to be BUT not what he would originally do. Really? Have you every expected to see everything he gave us in his films. fuck no. That's why we love him! After watching this movie I feel like it wasn't like the rest...the soul of a Tarantino Film. Don't get me wrong...I'm not saying Tarantino's heart and soul isn't in this film..Oh it is! It's just...Best way to describe it...You could play this film off as another director and say he intended to make it in the vein of Tarantino. We see it all but it's not really IT.

okay...

I have to say something. This movie was terrible. Sure it has some great scenes, mostly with the german or brad pitt but overall it was the worse of all his film and maybe of the year. If you've seen any other of his films, you kinda knew what was gonna happen. He stole from himself but somehow not as well. It was as if it was by someone else trying to be tarantino but not understanding why he did what he did. the Basterds did nothing to the plot, if they had been taken out what would have

And i liked all his other work but someone needed to edit this well. The only good story was the cinema owner and even by the end it was too over the top to be good. Unless this was a joke, it wasn't a good movie

I've seen it 3 times thus far, and it's one of the few movies I want to see again and again. The ending is perfect. Shoshanna's silhouette in the smoke was creepy but so well done.

Excellent!

There's no more praise for me to add, it has all been said already. The only thing that stopped this from being a masterpiece was the attention given to Eli Roth's character. It's a classic, and could have been a faultless classic. The more I think about it, the more I think about how perfect the rest of the cast were. As for Waltz - there hasn't been this good a villain since Gene Hackman in Unforgiven. A great performance in a brilliantly written part. Quentin's twist on the old device

As for Waltz - there hasn't been this good a villain since Gene Hackman in Unforgiven. A great performance in a brilliantly written part. Quentin's twist on the old device of switching dialogue from German (and French) to English - something used time and again in the openings of war movies - was a stroke of genius. Hmm, guess I couldn't resist adding more praise after all!

Loved it. Lots of things to rave about but many have already raved about. I'll jut say it's one of Tarantino's best and Christoph Waltz indeed deserves the hype that he earned from Cannes.

I absolutely loved it! I was a little shocked that it was very different then the trailers. The ending was awesome. I was totally surprised. JimmyO's review was excellent. Eli Roth is a bad actor and I don't know why he cast him but overall Brad Pitt was phenomenal and the story itself was incredibly well done. Easily #3 on my list of Tarantino's best.

This is the first time in a looong time I've been able to say I just saw a perfect film.

I haven't been this entertained by a movie since The Dark Knight. I've always liked Tarantino's work but have never considered him to be one of the top directors. I've always felt his films had too much clunky, needless dialogue. That being said, I think the dialogue in Basterds is perfect. Every single line is important in either building the tension or telling the story. If he doesn't win another

This was the kind of film that comes around once every couple of years and makes you realize why you love movies so much. I can say without reservation that this is Tarantino's masterpiece.

I loved everything about his movie. From the dialogue to the way it was shot. I even loved the chapters. The only problem I had was the cast of Eli Roth. Don't get me wrong the guy is a good director but as far as being in a tarantino film i felt he was out of place. besides that I loved it! And I think Christoph Waltz was brilliant in the film. Can we say Oscar Nom for is performance???

Like practically everyone else, I think this is a near perfect film. Possibly Tarantino's best since Pulp Fiction. Everything was just spot on.

He had kind of lost me with Death Proof, but he certainly won me back with this!

I already gave my opinion and thoughts (10 out of 10!) but I just had to come again to disagree with what thundercat64 said WHOLEheartedly. The dialog in this movie was NEVER pointless. Possible spoilers:

The opening interrogation scene was a great introduction to, what many other people are saying, one of the greatest villains of all time. Col. Landa sucks you in with his kindness and general charisma before turning into a cold hearted killer. And the stuff about the rats was really
I already gave my opinion and thoughts (10 out of 10!) but I just had to come again to disagree with what thundercat64 said WHOLEheartedly. The dialog in this movie was NEVER pointless. Possible spoilers:

The opening interrogation scene was a great introduction to, what many other people are saying, one of the greatest villains of all time. Col. Landa sucks you in with his kindness and general charisma before turning into a cold hearted killer. And the stuff about the rats was really good for going into the mind of a Nazi. Also, the point of speaking in English was genius.

Next, the introduction of The Basterds and what they do with Nazi's or people they "let go". All good stuff that shows the one thing they mean business about is killing Nazis.

Next, showing Shoshonna, meeting the man who will give everyone a chance to accomplish said goals of "killin Nazis." This is set up, but dont for one second think the dialog is pointless. The meeting with Joseph Goebells, the facing Col. Landa again for the first time since your family was slaughtered 4 years earlier (this scene packed a punch....so well done).

Next the introduction to the way The Basterds are going to "crash the party". The actress "traitor" and scene with The Basterds portraying Nazis is not pointless dialog either. Everything from the new born baby Max stuff, to the discussion of accents, to what seems LIKE throwaway dialog at times (far from it seeing as how they had to fit in)....Catching my pattern. Literally, everything is necessary when it comes to the dialog in this movie.

And then not only at the end of each scene do you get a huge pay off for witnessing that dialog, you get a whole final chapter for a pay off. The final theatre showing is classic.

I cant stress how much I loved this movie, and unlike Death Proof (which I personally still like) I cant understand when someone says they dont like the dialog in this movie. In Death Proof, it was arguable that it was throw away random chit-chat (which again, I dug for that reason cuz it was a throwback to actual Grindhouse movies). But here...this is quality, nay, the HIGHEST kind of quality, dialog you can hope for. None of it was pointless.

Another Tarantino twisted classic masterpiece. Could have used JUST A LITTLE more action but it was a suspenseful, gruesome, massively entertaining film that we expected this entire time. QT you rule dude.

PS - My print didn't get the Inception teaser (had to settle for the bootleg). Can they at least not be so ridiculously fucking sneaky by putting the trailer on "some prints"?

"I want mah scalps!"

I couldn't agree more with just about every one of you. Great film, great actors, the dialogue was spot on, the climax was unforgettable. This film really has a lot going for it. I felt there should have been more Basterd scenes, but that's just me. They were my favorite part. But other than that I enjoyed the hell out of it!

Frustrated

I normally love what Tarantino does, but I felt that this film went nowhere. Never got any information on the soldiers that Pitt recruited. Why?. Yes it was well acted, and could have had an incredible story if it actually focused on something other than pointless dialogue and music he took from older films (and Kill Bill). I usually love the conversation he has his characters discuss, but not this time. I didn't care for anything in this film. It felt like a mess that dragged on until it

It felt like a mess that dragged on until it climaxed (which was not impressive) Sitting through 20-30 minutes of talking is fine, if it goes somewhere, but sitting through 20-30 minutes of talking with a 30 second action sequence is a smack to the face. I felt like he threw this together for the sake of doing something soon rather than being inspired enough to do something great like usual. He is a fantastic film maker and writer, but I can't put this in the collection of acceptable Tarantino. I enjoyed Death Proof better and that had many flaws as well.

totally agree. We get short cut of a great and funny background of one of the basterds.....that's it. After introducing it the way he did(HILARIOUS!!) He left us empty. The music was a let down too. The same exact thing in every other Trantino film...Even when this one was set in Nazi Germany.....not anything modern like he has done in the past. He does do a little or a lot of genre mixing in his films but this time it was executed poorly.

I didn't love it, it was ok, too many scenes that went nowhere, the twist was ridiculous, with the bar scene being the highlight of course.

Bastages.

It wasn't as bloody and violent as I thought it would be but perhaps that's a good thing..my only drawback would be that BJ Novak wasn't given much to do..but all that aside it does host Christoph Waltz as one of the best onscreen villians..at 2 hours 30mins it never seemed to drag on like other summer blockbusters this year...I might even see it a second time which is rare.

10 out of 10. And I dont give that score out easily. In fact, I think it's been quite a long time. But seriously, this is about as good as it gets. Interesting, fun, SUPREMELY well acted across...seriously everyone in it is fantastic. The writing, the pacing...it all comes across as something very fresh and stimulating. Seriously, with last weekend having District 9 and this weekend having Inglorious Basterds....this is the best 2 weekends in a row for movies ever. And while I loved D9

And while I loved D9 and would give THAT a 9...this is honestly Best Picture of the year and could very well be his Tarantino's greatest work since Pulp Fiction. Each scene may start off slowish, but tension builds with the fantastic dialog that Tarantino wrote, and then BAM! He hits you with a crazy, payoff that sends a rush through you. You cant get any better than this.

my favorite movie this summer... and i seen'em all.

This was pure fun and entertainment without friggin robots and doo-dads and aliens and gizmos and bullshit.

Don't go in there with expectations like some of the "disappointed" posters below me... just sit down and submit because Qt doesn't do cliche and traditional structure.

This was pure fun and entertainment without friggin robots and doo-dads and aliens and gizmos and bullshit.

Don't go in there with expectations like some of the "disappointed" posters below me... just sit down and submit because Qt doesn't do cliche and traditional structure.

every word out of Pitt's mouth was awesome. The villian is a giddy, evil awesome twerp and almost every actor was spot on (Roth's acting was a little amateurish in the beginning but he seemed to find his stride).

Support real films.... if you PAID to see bullshit like transformers or terminator or everything else this summer than it is your moral duty to give back to cinema and see this, district 9 or the hurt locker.

Insanely Great

I seen it a few days early here in Paris and despite having no subtitles and not being able to speak French or German I still loved it. I can't wait to see it again but this time with the subtitles.

Seen it Twice

Tarantino delivers the goods once again. Being an avid fan of the director myself, I'm not quite sure if this film will win over any film goers who are currently on the fence regarding Tarantino, but if this man's films are already your kind of bag, you should enjoy the hell out of Inglourious Basterds. I only have two issues with the film, and those two issues being the casting choice of Eli Roth, and Mike Myers. Concerning Roth, he did okay with the role, but when watching him do his thing,

Concerning Roth, he did okay with the role, but when watching him do his thing, you just know a more capable actor could have done a far better job with the Donowitz The Bear Jew. Myers just simply takes me out of the movie during his scene, because I can not help but picture Austin Powers. It truly makes no sense why Tarantino would cast such a well known comic actor in a serious role as a British man, knowing full well that Myers has had three huge film hits as Austin Powers. I was on the brink of laughter everytime the man spoke. Oh well. Other than those two misteps, Tarantino knocked it out of the park. Now, where do I rank this up against his other films? Let's see... 1. Pulp Fiction 2. Jackie Brown 3. Ingloruious Basterds 4. Resevoir Dogs 5. Kill Bill 6. Death Proof Go see it today!!

Incomplete

Not because the movie was bad or anything, but because half way through it, the friggin' film BURNT !!! No bullshit folks. Right at chapter 4 (I believe) after the plan was hatched to burn the "cinema" down with the flammable film- a BIG burn hole came on the screen and we were stuck with the pre-movie commercial slideshow for 20 min.(many of us thought it was part of the movie) ! The clerk finally came down and said "the projector is broken". We all got a free "anytime, any movie" pass and

Hoover strength! I'll go next Friday. It was great up to that point tho' !!

10/10

Film has Tarantino written all over it and while there are some quite talky scenes (like all of Tarantino's films) the pay off is always worth it. And of course nothin' wrong with some Tarantino dialouge either. This film was just a lot of fun (particularly the ending) and I enjoyed all the performances. So far my favorite film of the year and dare I say it my favorite Tarantino film.

Liked it a lot!

It's a Tarantino movie, so you can expect a lot of dialogue. His best since Pulp Fiction.

6.5/10 Too much talkly, not enough well everything else

Totally disappointed. It's fun in places & the Bad Guy was great, but other than that meh. Detach Tarantino's name & this goes completely unnoticed. It should have been cut @ least 20 minutes too.

I was a little bit disapointed with it because I expected it to be more like a Sphaghetti Western but I'm going to go see it again right away to clear my thoughts

Could'nt ask for anything more.

First the brilliant District 9, and then the exhilirating, exhausting, & tense masterpiece from QT. He has done it again, and I can not wait to see this again, and again. The finale is what cinema is all about, and I was floored. Whew!

I'm saying LANDA is the best villain since DARTH VADER.

Definitely a 9/10 for me..

Takes a bit to really get going, but some of the writing is unbelievablely good. Different kind of movie for Quentin--I'm not sure how it's gonna end up doing at the box office but it's a good time.

The opening credits were classic Tarantino and I knew I was gonna like it. Christoph Waltz deserves an Oscar for this.
