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.
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
bar scene 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.
