DaveyBoy77's review of Inglourious Basterds

“I have to disagree with the last review of this film. ...”


written by DaveyBoy77 on 21/12/2009

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 lots of the dialogue was long winded and unnescessary.

The music score was also quite bizarre. The selection of Spanish flamenco music for the backdrop of a firefight didn't really work well, and the use of a David Bowie record towards the end just didn't seem right.

In my opinion, there wasn't enough of the trademark comical blood and gore that we've come to expect from Tarantino, and personally I thought Brad Pitt was very weak.
