Meh. The conversations in Inglourious Basterds leave a lot to be desired in my opinion and part of the reason for that is that neither Landa nor Waltz (as two sides of the same coin) have nobody to play off of, no one to be their equal. The only person who comes close is Raine/Pitt, who only does so by brute force, not by wit.
