Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Although Quentin Tarantino only officially announced that he would be making Inglourious Basterds last year, this movie has been in the making for a lot longer than that. And now it's here, in theaters, no longer just a rumor he keeps bringing up. But how is it? Tarantino's best movie to date? Or his worst? Is it too long or too confusing? How are the performances from the ensemble cast that includes both big actors and unknowns? Is it entertaining? Sound off below, leave your thoughts, and let us know what you thought of Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds!
To fuel the fire, after seeing both the Cannes cut and the final version, I absolutely adore this movie. It's brilliant work, from everyone involved, Tarantino on down. I won't go so far as to call it my favorite film of the year (like Brandon did), but it's definitely a highlight, especially after Tarantino tweaked the final version. I definitely think Christoph Waltz deserves an Oscar and I'm personally in love with Mélanie Laurent more than Diane Kruger, but that's just me. Although the movie is not what it's being marketed as, it's still a great story, and truly entertaining to watch play out from start to finish. Bravo, Mr. Tarantino!
