i finally had the chance to watch quentin tarantino’s latest blood bath, inglourious basterds, last night. verdict? great movie. would i watch it again? perhaps. i’m a huge tarantino fan, pulp fiction remains in my top 3 favorite movies, and while i love his films, i do believe there is a time and place for them. could i live on nothing but his signature gore plus witty humor? probably, but i may in turn become more violent and even more sarcastic (if that’s even possible). diane kruger is beyond words stunning in this film. eli roth and brad pitt, however, stole the show for me. why is it that every role brad pitt portrays he does so to perfection? oh yeah, bc HE’S BRAD PITT. but for once, can’t quentin let more than a couple people live? probably not.
probably best to let the description of the movie speak for itself:
Col. Hans Landa: You’ll be shot for this! Lt. Aldo Raine: Nah, I don’t think so. More like chewed out. I’ve been chewed out before.
Lt. Aldo Raine: You didn’t say the goddamn rendezvous was in a fu***n’ basement. Lt. Archie Hicox: I didn’t know. Lt. Aldo Raine: You said it was in a tavern. Lt. Archie Hicox: It is a tavern. Lt. Aldo Raine: Yeah, in a basement. You know, fightin’ in a basement offers a lot of difficulties. Number one being, you’re fightin’ in a basement!
Sgt. Donny Donowitz: [Aldo is carving a swastika into Private Butz’s forehead] You know, Lieutenant, you’re getting pretty good at that. Lt. Aldo Raine: You know how you get to Carnegie Hall, doncha? Practice.
