I really didn't dig this flick. Going in I knew it was going to be a tongue in cheek, inaccurate, revisionist, black comedy but I still couldn't suspend my disbelief enough to get into it. Aldo Raine was an amusing and interesting character as was Hans Landa but not enough time was focused on those two or the rest of the Basterds. You can tell which characters Tarantino plans on killing because they are usually built up and fleshed out pretty well. Casting Mike Myers is a good way to jar someone out of a movie and into thinking that they stepped into some Austion Powers warp.

I did like how Donowitz and Ulmer went all "agents of the apocalypse" at the end. They didn't even question what was going on around them. Also little man Utivich being such a stoic nonplussed yes man to Aldo at the end.

I would probably rank this somewhere between Resevior Dogs and Pulp Fiction with Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill being the best movies Quentin's directed so far.
I'm a big fan of war movies but not of Tarentino, so I will pass on this one.
This is very good Tarentino. I rank Reservoir Dogs as his best by far, and there have been some stinkers (Jackie Brown comes to mind). I didn't expect the movie to be so hilarious. It's like some fantasy/dream of Aldo Raine, the bumpkin who put the words "Inglourious Basterds" on his gun.
I describe this movie to my friends as 100% historically accurate lol.
I didn't like it. The segments involving the Basterds were great, but I wish he had fleshed them all out individually like he did for Stiglitz. The first scene was interesting and intense, but every other dialogue-driven scene felt drawn out and never seemed to go anywhere.

The side-story with the Jewish girl put me to sleep. I just didn't care.
I really loved this movie, and I'd rank it just a notch beneath Reservoir Dogs. I love how Tarantino has crafted a WWII western, complete with part of the score written by Ennio Morricone. I thought Christoph Waltz as Hans Landa was one of the best villains of any film I've seen. The opening scene, the strudel scene, and the climax were some of my favorites. I was very impressed with this movie in every aspect.

"Yea, you'll want insurance for the meds.  My meds would cost $270 if I didn't have insurance.  But yeah if you do make the plunge, just remember to take the meds like every 24 hours on or as close to the dot as possible."
