- Inglourious Basterds review by Geordiedog
Very, very disappointing. End of. I did write quite a long review for this film but I scrapped it on the grounds that enough time has been wasted with this effort as it is. If you're really stuck then watch it. Otherwise get Axis of War out instead

Worst movie of the last 5 years
- Inglourious Basterds review by PV
This is a dire movie, even by QT's plummeting standards. Silly, badly written (repetitive dialogue; dialogue that is clearly Tarantino's voice spoken by several characters, so not differentiation). Ridiculous rewriting of history (why?) for no purpose. Silly pantomime-ish hiss-boo portrayal of Nazis. Utterly absurd and deeply unenjoyable.
How this ever made money and got nominated for awards is beyond me. It is trash. No stars.

Tarantino has always been a bit of an indulgent filmmaker to me. Script full of lengthy scenes filled with at least one 'speech-ifying', righteous characters that sound all a bit similar; sumptuous visuals; classic score; lengthy running times and at least a touch of unnecessary violence.
This film isn't a new take on things. It does look good, and sound great too -- the man certainly knows the craft. Most of the dialogue-heavy 'someone's going to be found out' scenes are at least led by a delightfully bonkers Christoph Waltz,
An OK effort, 30mins too long and still manages a rather pointless (if loud) denouement.
He's done better, and worse.
