Inglourious Basterds

I only watched this for the first time the other day. Please forgive me. I thought it was going to be a lot more gruesome and chose to give it a miss.

Rating: 8/10

My One Line synopsis

Everyone is out to get the Nazis, including a Nazi.

The Good

Christoph Waltz *Chef kiss*. Whenever he was on screen, my whole body was tense. The polite antagonist is honestly one of the scariest characters you can see.

This is also one of the better Tarantino movies, especially after I sat through all 3 hours of his last self wank fest Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

The Odd

This isn’t that odd, but whenever B.J. Novak was on screen, all I could see was Ryan from The Office and wondering if he’d gone on this mission just to escape Kelly.

The Disappointing

There’s not much I was upset about with this film. Maybe a smidge long but show me a movie these days that isn’t.

The Award Goes to…

The cream for the strudels. Looked so good.

Fun Fact

I’m sure a lot of people already know this but hopefully I’ll get one person with it… When there is a close up of Diane Kruger getting choked, it’s Tarantino’s hands because (1) he wanted it to look realistic and she only trusted him to choke her to near death and (2) he’s a psychopath.

Recommended Watching

If you like a Tarantino ensemble then go for Pulp Fiction, AVOID THE HATEFUL 8 AT ALL COSTS. To be fair I fell asleep once and later turned it off it was so boring so maybe it got good??
