inglourious basterds – quentin’s masterpiece


good evening – earlier today i finally saw the movie i’ve been anticipating for months … inglourious basterds – written and directed by the incomparable quentin tarantino – and now i can safely say – it was well worth the wait – it’s a complete cinematic masterpiece – especially if you happen to be a fan of tarantino’s past films – i’ve enjoyed them all but this is definitely his tightest piece of work ever! now if you’re not particularly fond of his style – then this movie probably isn’t for you – but fans of quentin are going to eat this film up – it’s well-written with plenty of snappy dialogue and the pacing was perfect – it’s long at 2.5 hours but i didn’t think to look at my watch once plus it’s actually less violent and bloody than i thought it would be! (it was also the top-earning film this weekend – raking in $37.6 million bucks!) the entire ensemble cast was superb – especially christoph waltz who plays an evil high-ranking official in the third reich (nicknamed the ‘jew hunter’) brad pitt (leader of the nazi killin’ ‘basterds’) was also quite good – and i loved the performances from the ladies – mélanie laurent and diane kruger (who also both happen to be totally gorgeous) i’m hoping this film might garner some oscar nominations – i think it’s definitely time for quentin to take home the best director statuette! (perhaps even one for best original screenplay) popbytes over & out for tonight … xoxo



PS below you’ll find the italian poster – it’s much better looking than the domestic one!

    This movie is probably the best among Tarantino’s works of art. In fact, think it is even better than Pulp fiction and kill Bill, which are my personal favorites.

    Tarantino is very twisted but that’s what makes him famous

    loved it but it’s not an original screenplay – it’s a remake, so if he won an oscar for the screenplay it’d be for best adapted. I’m also hoping for a best director for him : )
