First of all, I'm going to start with that fact that I do not like Quentin Tarantino's movies. I did not like Reservoir Dogs, I do not like Django, or Pulp Fiction. I have yet to see Kill Bill Vol 1 and 2 so there is a possibility that I may like those but I don't have my hopes up. So the fact I don't like his movies does affect the score of this film for me. Okay first of all, when I saw the advertising for this movie, I thought that it looked pretty good. Sure it was directed by... (read more)

finally tarantino has got the formula correct again not since jackie brown has tarantino delivered such a well strung piece of film, overall at times the film can seem a little one dimensional and doesnt probe deeply into background or personalities of its characters, but it does put forth an number of great scenes that could be seen to carry the film. tarantino again uses the opening scene to capture the audiences appatite for slick dialog, a method hes used before think of the coffoe shop...

This for me was a film that got completely carried away with trying to be interesting and quirky that it completely missed the point of actually telling any kind of story. The holes in the plot are too many to mention, and the characters (apart from the subtly disturbing colonel Hans Landa played by christoph waltz) are one dimensional and over acted. In fact I would say this is the worst film I have ever seen Brad Pitt in. It seems like a film where the director has got so carried away... (read more)

The Inglourious Basterds storyline sounded ridiculous when described by friends, before I saw the film, but I watched it, nevertheless, with high expectations given Tarantino's ability to surprise in an impressive way. BTW, I was not an instant fan of Tarantino' work, as his films grew on me with time, but this also means that I had time to deeply appreciate his work. To my surprise, I was not impressed with this one and only managed to sit through to the end out of curiosity and respect for... (read more)

In my opinion, this is a pretty good movie. Despite some of the scenes dragging on too long, Inglourious Basterds is still a lot of fun.
The movie starts of fantastically well, tense and thrilling. However, if the accomplishment of the first scene carried on throughout the movie, we then we might have a masterpiece on our hands.
There were certainly Tarantino moments, which, well, woke you up during the long talking bits (which I have to say could have easily been condensed). This movie is... (read more)

I have to disagree with the last review of this film. I'm a huge Tarantino fan, and Kill Bill is one of my favourite films. I remember reading mixed reviews when this was released in cinema, but thought I'd be one of the few that liked it due to my appreciation of Tarantino. How wrong I was.
This is an ambitious film, mainly due to the use of a foreign language and therefore subtitles through most of it. I felt that Tarantino's love of dialogue didn't convert well to subtitles, and that... (read more)

Tarintino at last comes back to form with a decent movie outside of re-making B movies. This world is an imagined 'other', hence the 'alternate world' ending. Additionally the time-line of Nazi rule is considerably longer. In essence the movie centres around revenge. A group of hardened killers, not too distant from the dirty dozen are sent behind enemy lines to scalp as many nazis as possible [100 per head]. They are then given information that Hitler, Bormann Goering and Goebbels et al... (read more)

Quentin Tarantino's latest film, Inglourious Basterds looked promising, sounded equally odd and also strangely normal (could he really be making a war film, how could he retro up Nazis?). I hoped that it was better than Death Proof and went to see it was fairly low expectations.
Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised. The film has some moments which feel too long and although clever could have been condensed to give the film some zip at the beginning. Brilliant perfomances from Brad Pitt,... (read more)
