Inglourious Basterds [2009] Movie Review Recommendation

Inglourious Basterds [2009]

Well, what to say about this flick. I am guessing that you all have seen it and liked it, but I have to review it, because in the future people need to remember what a gem it is. Directed by Quentin Tarantino, this masterpiece is something that will not achieve cult status in the following years. The reason for that is very simple: it became a cult movie the moment it was released. Christoph Waltz`s performance is something that will be remembered for a long time, as well as the rest of the movie. Extremely intense and somewhat brutal, it manages to be very interesting although it lasts a little longer. Replay value is great, and you could see it several times and each time you will find something that you have missed in the previous viewing. Incorporating several ideas into one, and using the famous The Chosen Few vibe, it is generally likable both by women and man.

That’s it. It somehow feels dirty to go through all the loops that are pretty obvious and praise Quentin on his work along with the rest of the crew. Like I’m invited to a circle-jerk party and after I came (the second came) the whole thing felt dirty and too easy. If you check out the Imdb page for Inglourious Basterds you will find it has whopping 1500 reviews and over 500 external reviews, showing just how much analyzing this movie is popular. I think that Quentin figured out the gimmicks that are easily observable if you’re looking for them and used them profusely. However, these gimmicks must also have great vessels, I mean actors, and one more, incredibly important thing, background. This time the use of second world war took care of that, and if you take pay close attention to his work you will find this background thing in almost all of his movies. I feel like he takes himself out of the equation in every movie, just technically examining extreme situations, wondering what you think about this?
