In Nazi-occupied France two plots to assassinate the Nazi High Command converge. One planned by Shoshanna a jewish woman surviving the massace of her family and the other by a team of U.S. Jewish-American soldiers led by Lt. Aldo Raine. Each side connected to Hans Landa, a cunning SS Colonel.

Great film. Not THE BEST EVER OMG, but definitely surprisingly well done. The dialogue was never the problem, although perhaps the scenes ran a little long and the ending was a bit too abrupt, given the time Tarantino gave to everything else. All in all, highly recommended and very entertaining.
INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS may in some sense wish to provoke but ultimately it is more interested in pandering. This is Tarantino at his most cartoonish and pop revisionist. He is always quite skilled at engineering dramatic situations and writing quotable dialogue, but here everything seems perfunctory and glib. It could almost be framed as a geopolitical rape-revenge film. It is addressed to our baser selves.
This movie embodies all the worst aspects of World War 2 movies: hero porn, and smart/evil Nazis. The real bad guys have always been bureaucrats and politicians, who are not diabolically clever. Unfortunately, that's not as interesting.
He may be an auteur, but he certainly isn't a competent editor. Still, this is my favorite Tarantino if only because of the perfection that is the bar scene. To those who think it denies the Holocaust, I strongly disagree. This is a film that is fully aware of the sorrow and the pity, pun intended, that people have towards the Holocaust and uses it to, paradoxically, make us come to term with it.
A wild and entertaining film that uses an incredible ensemble cast to rewrite history. The scene where the camera pans up to the top of the stairs is spectacular, especially as "Cat People" by David Bowie blares over top.
despite how good parts of it are, I can't get past the feeling that Tarantino's intentionally fucking with us, and doesn't want us to enjoy the film, or else we're the assholes we wants to paint us as. Sort of an anti-noble venture.
THE most overrated film of all time. Brad Pitt is irritating enough as a redneck American officer that I started rooting for the "nat-zees" to win. Sorry folks, but this is absolute garbage. I only wish it had been made on burnable nitrate stock.
