    Inglourious Basterds

    Mods, if the name of the flick causes any problems and needs to be modified or removed, I understand.

    I'm actually kind of surprised a thread on this didn't pop up already. I went to go watch the movie with some of my co-workers on friday afternoon and we all enjoyed it immensely. You can tell when there are a bunch of Marines in a public theater, because we tend to laugh at some things that may be inappropriate, and with a Tarantino film, its even worse.

    I thought that this movie had some of the best actual filmwork I have seen in a long, long time. Some of the shots and scenes are simply amazing, and show a lot of vision. The film has a unique combination (in my mind at least) of gratuitous gore, mixed with amazing filmwork.

    It is not meant to be a historically accurate film and it is not. I won't say anything else about that, but don't expect it to be something from the history books. Anyways, I certainly thought it was worth the price of admission, but it is certainly a film that is only appropriate for adults to see. Anyone else get a chance to see it yet?

    But the copy you buy in the souk won't be as good of quality. I got a few Iraqi "new releases" while I was over there, they are better than nothing. If you find a decent copy over there, enjoy it. I'm sure you will and your men will get some laughs out of it.

    EDIT: Dukal, that sick twisted kind of way is what my fellow grunts and myself found so amusing. But there are some aspects of the movie that are just so amazing, they speak for themselves. Of course, I'm not siskel or ebert.

    I saw it, it was typical Tarantino. The action scenes were superb and the plot had all the usual twists and wry humor. I particularly liked the SS Colonel and Brad Pitts Italian accent.

    I too am looking forward to seeing it. QT movies are in a category of their own, and one must understand that going in!

    With that in mind, it should be an awesome flick!

    Saw it opening night. It was not what I was expecting. I figured it'd be more action driven like Kill Bill. Despite that, Tarantino didn't disappoint. It was amazing. The characters and attention to detail in the scenes were phenomenal.

    How long before it shows up on TV for free. I refuse to pay the outrageous prices for popcorn at the theaters :)

    Great movies but his ideas on gun control seem a little vague...

    Playboy: Does the government have the right to tell citizens whether, they can own guns?
    Tarantino: I don't own a gun. But if gun control were to happen in America, I would have no problem with it whatsoever. Gun control would probably do wonders here. The street violence in America is horrific. When you go to Europe, you actually feel like you take a vacation from the threat of violence. Not that people don't get killed and raped in Europe, but it seems like they don't in comparison with here. But I also feel there's a slight hypocrisy about gun control. America was founded on people grabbing guns and just taking it. We are basically a nation of warriors. We're very easily pumped up. For good reasons, sometimes.

    Was a really good flick, but I was expecting a little more gore and action.

    Tarantino sounds like he's got his head in his nether regions and needs some information from outside Hollywierd.
