View Full Version : Inglorious Basterds
My wife got it for me for Christmas. I highly recommend it if you haven't already seen it. They did a great job on this movie.
Revision: Sorry I should have included that you should like Quintin Tarrantino movies (Pulp Fiction , Reservoir Dogs etc). It's not you straight up war movie. If you like the old school classics, avoid this one.

Beg to differ (Opinion follows). Thought it said absolutely nothing, and was pretty much meaningless. Not even a good "Alternative History." What can you classify this movie as? Comedy? Drama? Neither. At the end of the movie I was left wondering what I had just watched. Glad I didn't waste my money to see it in a theater. My son (19) liked it so it must be a movie for the younger crowd.
Mark's rating is 1 1/2 thumbs down, a D-

That's what I thought. I saw the trailor for it months ago and it looked so weird I decided then and there I wouldn't be seeing it. I guess I should actually watch it before deciding, but I don't think it would make much difference. When Brad Pitt said,(something like) yoour job is to kill Natzies(spelling intentional), I wrote it off. God, I hate hollywood versions of southern-redneck-blue collar accents. And that whole Angie-Jolie-Pitt combination just turns me off anyway.
I don't know about the movie but I DO Know how to spell BASTARDS. Nick
I opted not to watch it when I saw a shot in the trailer of a guy running with a mg34 in one hand blasting away full auto... Owning a mg34, aside it being heavy as hell, the recoil from full auto 8mm will prevent anyone from running forward that easy and one handed...
guess need more realistic to be enjoyable to me.
Paid too much at the movie. Damn sure would not advise renting it.
I liked it... but you'd have to like Quintin Tarrantino's movies.. I like the different languages they used.. because it is more realistic but the subtitles were Horrible, the print was too small and they were on the screen for way way too short a time to read them.. and when your reading them you can't see what is going on in the movie.. so I had to watch it twice... It was OK, better that Kill Bill anyway...
My opinion.. B2B

the head German guy played a good role. He was really a schwinehundt....
I really liked it. It's definitely not your average war movie, but that is what I liked about it. I think the "southern twang" from Brad Pitt was a bit much, but he wasn't really in the movie alot anyway. It was different though. Definitely an underlying story with the girl getting the last word in the end at the theater. 2 thumbs up.
Decent movie in a kind of tribute to bad 1950's WWII war movies. Funny thing, I picked up on the Brit spy using the wrong hand gesture for the number 3 right off, and told te wife, she thought I was nuts at first.
I picked up on it because we had a one day class at Defense Language Institute on how Germans count, etc with hand gestures when I was going through German Language training there.:icon_salut:
The Guns of Navarone was fiction too. Movies aren't about relating history. They're about story telling.
"...on how Germans count...with hand gestures..." Using one's thumb for one, as opposed to the index finger? Just curious.
