Well I don't want to give away any of the plot, but the film just seemed like a mess. Some things really didn't seem to lead anywhere and I really didn't seem to get anything out of it. I like the idea of the film, but it didn't seem to deliver.
Personally, I really don't mind the idea of a Jewish revenge movie.. I mean they certainly deserve a revenge film after what was done to them, but then again revenge may not be the best solution. I felt, however, there was more going on here... and while I enjoy extensive dialogue... like Korey said, it seems to lose focus.
True. I think Tarantino meant for it to be that way however. It was just meant to be a revenge film and not really a film with a statement. In terms of a revenge film, he seemed to fail at it. I didn't walk away with the Hell Yeah! I should have. Like Korey, I rate films for what they are.. or at least supposed to be.
no no no no...i remember seeing QT in an omnibus documentary talking about the fact that he'd like to do a film " about how a guy feels about his ex girlfriend.." i would like to see this movie. mike myers is the breaking point for me, but at least it kept roth away from the directors chair...and old big head wasnt in it...though having said that Landa is a great character....anyone seen the original btw??
this wasn't really like a remake, its just got the same title as QT worked in a video store once and typed it into the database as "Inglorious Basterds" instead of "Bastards" he placed this as the name of the film as refrence to him. so they're not really remakes.
did i say it was??? ive watched a lot of italian exploitation films in my time, so was fairly interested when i heard the initial reports, but hey, shouldve known better, last decent thing he did was Jackie Brown (which he didnt write). in my opinion.
This is one of my favourite films of the year so far. Wasn't what I expected, QT really works the drama here. I'm not sure if we need more. I'd like to see QT move on to new things. Maybe he could do a short film with the Basterds or something like that, for a bit of fun.
