Fantastic, last minute booked to watch at local cinema 5.30 viewing. Brilliant from start to finish we were a captive audience.  No film director touches Quentin Tarantinos world and his amazing imagination.  Helen Laughton.

My review is in the Track Your Film topic.

I've been writing at length about it since wednesday. You wanna talk about, bring up a topic, give me a question but until then I'll keep it brief.

Just got back from seeing it. Absolutely amazing. I have to admit, I had my doubts after Death Proof, but they were shattered. 10/10

I've just seen it, and I seriously do not know what to think. This is such a weird situation to be in, but I had very mixed reactions to everything that happened on screen. As soon as I came out of the cinema, I was thinking about watching it again tomorrow, and I may still do. It didn't help that I needed a piss through all the film, but that was more psychological than physical (if that makes sense). I don't want to give any opinions on it at this point. I really need to think about it.

The only thing that took me a while to get was how situations changed drastically, to being very funny to super tense. But that's a good thing, really displayed QT's prowess in my opinion.

Went to check it out expecting a huge ass review but instead...pretty minimal.

What was your favorite part? How does it compare to all his other films (what ratings did you give his other films?) You think Waltz deserves an Oscar? Was Brad Pitt funny or borderline annoying? Was Eli Roth all right? What was the major flaw?

Ok, I'm going to say some things while they're fresh in my mind. Just bullet point form:

- Very different to any of his other films.

- Did not see a trunk shot, haha

- The clip "Hans Landa" that popped up on You Tube, had dialogue I loved but which wasn't in the film. I was quite disappointed by that.

- I would have liked a more kick arse opening scene.

- I expected this film to be really funny based on the reviews I've read. But It surprised me quite a bit just how serious this film actually is. I actually wanted a serious film from QT, I'm not saying it's completely serious, but it was definitely more serious than it has been made out.

- I thought the Pitt/Italian scene was absolutely hilarious

- I felt the pacing of the film was a bit inconsistent. It did seem rushed at times.

- Christophe Waltz was amazing in this.

- It was a bit strange how he used 2 tunes from Kill Bill again in this film as well as some other aspects (like the effect when he introduces a character)

- The direction and camera placement/movement was very different a lot of the times, to what we have seen from QT so far.

- The violence/gore was very well done. It was hard to watch, but in a good way.

- The scene in the cinema at the end ranks up there as one of the greatest QT scenes.

- It was cool to hear Samuel L Jackson and Harvey Keitel in there. Their voices are very distinct.

Interesting to hear about the re-use of Kill Bill music. Which tunes, exactly?

I had heard that that bit of dialogue was cut out...couldn't believe that he would choose that to trim. I thought it was great in that clip.

The one in this clip:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktwy7FmN ... annel_page

and I can't believe I've forgotten the other tune (I'm really tired). If I hear it I'll know. Anybody care to help out?


I realised that there is quite a bit of footage in the trailers that doesn't actually appear in the film. Also, I only read a bit of the script when it leaked, but I read one section involving feet, I mentioned it here when the subject of feet in IB came up, but I didn't see that in the film either. He has cut quite a bit.

I watched in a small-ish room, it was an advanced screening obviously, so there were no adverts or trailers before the film. But the room was pretty much packed. I went to the very first showing of a very popular cinema in this area. I was still surprised to see so many people.

I wish I never listened to the people that claimed this to be like Kill Bill in WWII, because it isn't like that AT ALL. It's very different to Kill Bill. Also, although there are some very comical parts, I would say this is quite a mature Tarantino. The dialogue wasn't as witty, but it was very serious and to the point. You can tell QT had great discipline when writing (the one-finger typewriter anectode) and it shows. So although it's not as enjoyable as in Pulp Fiction for example, it's still very good.

The action scenes were incredible. He's really evolved, and is confident enough with his ability to shoot action scenes now. You'll see what I mean when you watch it. I don't want to spoil too much here.

His use of music was also very different to his past films. I don't mean the actual music itself, but how it stops and starts.

QT didn't really stick with formula here. Like DP, although it wasn't like any other QT film, it still felt like a QT film.


EDIT: I think the second tune was the one that plays after The Bride sticks her sword in that one crazy 88 member, and then walks around with it still in lodged in his body. It's like suspenseful sounding music, it's the best way I can describe it. I'm too tired to even think properly :(

Well I kept waiting for that bit to come and it never did, so naturally I was disappointed. That whole scene I thought was quite unlike anything QT has done before. It was very serious and quite unnerving (sp?). You didn't know where things were headed. It's a very adequate opening scene really, as the film was generally like that as well as many other set-pieced scenes. Landa especially, he's quite complex, but very unpredictable too. Definitely one of the greatest QT characters

Thanks for all the reactions, Iff. I remembered that youtube clip and thought that music was just supposed to be a temp track for that scene, but it's actually in the movie(?!?)

I guess "L'arena" now joins "Strawberry Letter #23" for repeated music in QT films.

It's also good to hear how QT's wings continue to spread in directing fine action sequences. Could his work involving car-chases compete with gun-play sequences? It sure sounds like it.

I've edited my earlier post if oyu're interested ^^

Well I was talking with my brother before the film about how Scorsese seems to have something new in each of his films, how he's always adapting some aspect of his filmmaking. I mentioned the shoot-out scene involving the cars towards the end of The Departed as an example of how Scorsese is able to evolve his style, yet maintain his high quality. Well in Inglourious Basterds, I know there aren't many action sequences, but there are 2 scenes in particular which are VERY well done. I actually had my mouth wide open when they happened. Very powerful scenes.

I really need to watch this again before I can say for certain what I think of this film and what rating I would give it. I don't think I will be able to go tomorrow due to work. I need to sleep now actually, but I can't stop thinking about IB. My mind is racing, but I have some conflicting feelings. They won't be resolved until I watch the film again.

Sounds like the "White Lightning" bit.

Thanks again for the info. I wanted to keep this in mind so I won't be taken out of the movie when I see it...Unlike Johnathan Ross .  ;D

yeah i dont know why but it kind of didnt feel like a tarantino film allot of the time. but to be honest i think that is a good thing in itself. theres no point repeating yourself. obviously some of the dialogue and shots were tarantinoesque. i loved it. ill definitely be seeing this again. great to see hitler getting shot to shit ha so funny. the scene with the cinema burning down and the two basterds riddling everyone trying to escape was epic. it was so intense.

unlike death proof that had some cringeworthy acting from some of the "actors" i really couldn fault anyone in this movie.

Eli Roth was a pretty much a joke. His Boston accent sucked hard.

The major flaw was it's uneven pacing.

Brad Pitt is a strong comedic actor and in this there were some pretty good laughs from him.

My favorite part was the entire last chapter. Tarantino's camerawork in the last chapter made me cream my jeans. It's totally on par with Brian De Palma's self-masturbating camerawork in Snake Eyes and his stuff in Dressed to Kill/Body Double which I think have some amazing long takes in them. There are a BUNCH in the last chapter.

It feels nothing like any of his other films for the MOST part.

Waltz was good. I'm an anti-Oscar person so I won't comment on that but he was very good.


My massive review has spoilers in it as you can't analyze a film without bringing specific points without sounding like a pretentious doorknob.

Also, the trunk shots can be applied to the shots of Raine and Eli looking down at a freshly Swastika'd forehead.

i thought the cinema i seen it in today was showing it a week early but there was also another cinema showing the movie too. not because they both showed this film earlier then worldwide release but they actually are the two best cinemas for movies in the city.

also yes the only thing that was a bit of a put off was that it did seem rushed. how can that happen with 150 mins i know! ha i cudv watched more!

Well I warned people that it was nothing like KB just by reading the script, but hey, no one wants to hear me apparently.

I've read quite a few reviews now, and I have a pretty bad feeling to be honest. I haven't seen it yet, but it seems like QT tried too many things in one movie, and the result is a mess in tone and pace, something I didn't really notice in the script. I hope that's just people being upset about the whole basterds not featuring much, but I'm frankly worried.

I'm glad to hear that he's evolving though, maybe it's a step in an exciting direction?

Thought it was amazing!

I was critical of a lot of death proof so I'm not some QT cheerleader but I really think he's outdone Kill Bill with this.

I'm too tired to write a more in depth review which i will later but i'd give it 9/10. Its such a celebration of cinema in every sense of the word, i'm gonna be checking this out a few times before it leaves the cinema.

Some of the best camerawork and dialogue we've ever seen from the maestro. For my money the basement scene is the greatest thing QT has ever done, absolutely sublime, faultless stuff and the camera work in the final chapter was amazing, tenabrae tracking shots all over the place! I honestly don't know how you can love cinema and not love this movie!

A great blend of the post-modern grindhouse flourishes mixed with more serious content - QT armed witha decent plot is unstoppable.
