Inglourious Basterds Review

As a film this is one of the best Tarantino films of all time, along with Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and Django Unchained. Nearly Everything within the film was perfect. From the unique characters like Hans Landa and Aldo Raine, to the crazy plot of killing Hitler in a Movie Theater, and the many outstanding scenes in between.

The first two opening scenes were superb. The first scene with Christoph Waltz's Hanz Landa and Denis Menochet's Perrier LaPadite was jaw dropping because you had no idea what would happen. The tension within that scene was so thick that you could cut it with a knife but at the same time there seemed to be no tension at all by the way Waltz's character spoke within that scene.

The second scene is where we meet the Basterds and specifically Aldo Raine. His monologue to the young recruits is one of best lines of dialogue that Tarantino has ever written in all of his films. These two scenes alone got me hooked to the film and made me want to see more of what would happen.

The movie is full a lot of interesting characters. The first two scenes we have Hans Landa and Aldo Raine, played by Christoph Waltz and Brad Pitt respectively. In the next scene we meet another major character, Shoshana Dreyfus played by Melanie Laurent who when we meet her escapes from being killed while her family gets massacred and wants revenge.

With the crazy plot and interesting characters, the movie becomes something very fun to watch. I recommend re-watching it again. 8.5 out of 10
