Certainly a movie that's quite violent and not exactly historically correct - but as that's not really this film's point I didn't mind. For me it's an unusual movie with great actors - the multilingual dialogs were fascinating.
Christoph Waltz was incredible and I also loved the performances of Michael Fassbender and some of the German cast.

Surprised by the "dragging, hard to watch" comments. Enjoyed every single second of it without even thinking of being bored. Already a Tarantino classic.

A great film with an amazing ensemble cast. Christoph Waltz is a shoo-in for best supporting actor for his portrayal of SS Colonel Hanz landa.

I think this movie is truly perfect and flawless in every aspect. I first saw the movie in theaters in 2009 and hated it. I was lost and bored. With each viewing I become more and more infatuated with every nuance and detail put into the film. The cinematography, the score, the acting, the plot, the dialogue... I can't find a flaw. I think the biggest connection is with the dialogue. Tarantino really has a knack for building scenes with extended dialogue but I believe it all has built towards this film. The spoiler is so engrossing that you genuinely can't look away and for such a simple scene, you can't pull yourself back for the edge of your seat. I believe it is Tarantino's magnum opus and based on Aldo Raine's final line I think he knew the same. I don't think Tarantino will ever make a movie better than Inglourious Basterds and I am completely ok with that.

Tarantino might be a mad man, but he makes damn good movies. This is one of his best examples. I'm not a big fan of Tarantino, but I can't deny how great he is and that watching his movies is a true delight.

As my first dive into the works of Tarantino, (someone I did want to dislike) I was actually blown away by how captivating and fantastic this film was. So many scenes were slow burning and all the more tense for it, and I was certainly impressed by the -initially strange- assortment of characters. I can't see how I'd personally like any of his films more than this, but hey, I'm willing to be blown away again.

Two basic impressions: 1) I wasn't expecting it to play out so much in subtitles (not a problem for me, especially since my mother tongue is French, the main language spoken in the film, with German second and English a distant third); and 2) Christoph Waltz steals the show. This is the Joker performance of 2009. I'm not a big war film buff, so I didn't get Tarantino's usual references (in fact, I rarely do), but he's created something immensely entertaining once again. I won't spoil the ending, but I turned to my roommate who was a History major and asked "But what about History?" Quoth he: "F*** History!"

Linguistically absolutely great; it's rare to find even bilingual, let alone trilingual, films with an authenticity that can rival this. And that's not counting the Italian segment, which was pretty funny.
Other than that, it was pretty good. Definitely not topping Pulp Fiction, not to mention Reservoir Dogs, and it's not exactly going in my Favourites, but it was pretty good all the same.

i watched this three times in the space of a month, it is brilliant on so many levels. people find it very very easy to criticise tarantino for simply being a fanboy of other films, making his films nothing other than tributes. but here he makes every scene compelling with camera work, dialogue, fantastic characters and extreme tension. its pure entertainment

If you make allowances for Tarentino's narcissism and cinematic excesses, it's an effective film. He builds the dramatic tension very well.

Acabei de ver este filme, e baseado nas minhas primeiras impressões tenho isto a dizer:

Acredito que o diretor já fez melhor emprego do seu estilo de linguagem cinematográfica em outras obras. Talvez seja porque o tema da segunda guerra é em alguns aspectos um ponto delicado. Ainda assim, não vejo como criar (ainda mais) a estética pop para este filme sem parecer forçado.
A proposta de releitura dos filmes da segunda guerra muito me agrada. Lembra o que os italianos fizeram com os westners nos anos 60/70 (Spaghetti Westners são umas das influências obvias adotadas pelo Tarantino). Esta releitura me faz repensar sobre os conceitos de guerra (não só a WWII, mas todas as guerras), de heroísmo, ocupação, etc. Enfim da mesma forma que os Spaghetti criaram um novo imaginário sobre a Expansão para o Oeste, Inglourious Basterds cria um novo imaginário sobre a WWII. Nestas imagens ninguém é moralmente correto e todos são vítimas.
Os personagens que protagonisam esta releitura são escolhidos com sabedoria. "Aldo, the Apache" é o esteriótipo de um soldado "AMERICANO" no seu pensar e agir, sendo em alguns momentos tão nazista quanto os nazistas. Este esteriótipo é feito baseado nos filmes clássicos de guerra (lembro de alguns deles com John Wayne no papel principal. John Wayne seria um ótimo Aldo). Coronel Landa, por outro lado, é bem menos robotico do que um oficial da GESTAPO normalmente é representado em filmes, o que o torna muito mais odiável como personagem (e mais amavel em alguns momentos). Shoshanna, a "Femme Fatale" do filme, é apaixonante. Isto de certo modo faz o filme carregar uma angustia constante: A paixão que ela induz potencializa os momentos de tensão do filme e, claro, a tristeza quando ela morre tanto quanto a felicidade de seu plano dar certo.
A releitura também afeta os personagens históricos. Goebbels normalmente é representado como um homem frio e calculista, com pleno conhecimento do funcionamento da industria cultural e estratégias de propaganda. Um verdadeiro controlador de mentes alemãs. No filme ele é retratado como um diretor superfulo e afetado com chiliques e prepotência.
O filme é mais lento do que os demais filmes do Tarantino, acredito que para prolongar a angústia, que me fez contorcer todo o tempo que eu não estava rindo.
O filme não causa boas sensações em um primeiro momento, acredito que esta não era a proposta dele. O filme convida a olharmos outros aspectos da história, da guerra e da vida. Ele confronta nosso imaginário sobre este momento (iclusive mudando a história) e isto pode incomodar inicialmente, depois percebo que isto ocorre para que pensarmos a guerra de uma forma diferente: Mais crítica e menos heróica.

Claro que está é minha opinião pessoal e ninguém deve concordar com ela. Ao contrário convido a contestar-la (com argumentos e cordialidade).

I just saw this movie, and based on my first impressions, I have this to say:

I think the director has done better job in using his style of cinematic language in other works. Perhaps because the subject is War, which is in some ways a delicate one. Still, I do not see how to create (even more) the Pop aesthetic to this film without looking forced.
The proposal to reread the War movies pleases me. Make me remember what the Italians did with the westners in the 60/70's (Spaghetti Westners are some obvious influences adopted by Tarantino). Rereading this makes me rethink the concepts of war (not just WWII, but all wars), heroism, occupation, etc.. Finally just as the Spaghetti created a new imaginary of the Expansion to the West, Inglourious Basterds create a new imagery about WWII. In these images no one is morally right and all are victims.
Characters of this rereading protagonisam are chosen wisely. "Aldo, the Apache is the stereotype of a soldier "Americano". And in his thinking and acting he looks like a Nazi. Sometimes he is more Nazi than the Nazis. This stereotype is made based on classic films of war (i can remember some of them with John Wayne in the lead role. John Wayne would be a great Aldo). Colonel Landa, moreover, is far less robotic than a Gestapo officer is usually represented in films, making it much more hateful as a character (and more amiable at times). Shoshanna, the "Femme Fatale" in the movie is fascinating. She somehow makes the film carrying a constant anxiety: The passion that she induces enhances the film's moments of tension and of course the sadness when she dies as far as the happiness when her plans ar succeceful
The new reading also affects the historical characters. Goebbels is usually represented as a man cold and calculating, with full knowledge of the functioning of the cultural industry and advertising strategies. A true german mind controler. In the film he is portrayed as a director superfluous and affected, with tantrums and arrogance.
The movie is slower than other films of Tarantino, I believe that is due to prolong the agony, which made me squirm the whole time I was not laughing.
The film does not cause good feelings at first, I believe that this was his proposal. The movie invites you to look at other aspects of history, war and life. He confronts our imaginary about this time (iclusive changing the history) and this can annoy at first, then realize that this happens to think the war in a different way: more critical and less heroic.

Of course this is my personal opinion and nobody have to agree with it. Unlike I invite to contest it (with arguments and cordiality, of course).
