I've lost track of how many times I've seen this movie. A++ acting, dialogue, casting, story all that jazz. I laughed my ass off at various points. I was covering my face at various points. There are lots of subtitles. I love Quentin Tarantino.
Great Tarantino! The 10 mn scene in the cafe basement is very cool indeed, this movie is sometimes very cheesy like most tarantino films but produce great entertainment, Michael Fassbender and Christoph Waltz at their finest as usual. 6.5/10
Did You Know?
Trivia
Shosanna Dreyfus is named after actress Julie Dreyfus, who appears in the film as Francesca Mondino.
@tzviperlow, thought the same.
idk, bit lame.
Kept my eyes on the screen. I quite liked the movie.
Well, good I guess?
It's a movie... Different strokes for different folks.
It's a little long but it's clever and witty with genius and badass dialogue. The ending will blow you away. 11/10
Ten percent for a rare moment of self criticism in a scene where the bastErds shoot two guards, Kill Bill-esque music seems to start, but then the film cuts to the Nazi movie playing that is also full of gun violence, and to Hitler's laughing face.
Unfortunately it's not much more than a fig leaf, very soon later we get the same characters pointing their cool looking guns at the anonymous premiere audience of the film-within-the-film - besides, the Nazi movies never really were that violent. The sadistic enjoyment of watching someone die wasn't Hitler's, it's Tarantino and Roth's.
The second 10 percent I can award for the playfulness by which the movie carries through it's dragging midsection and causes one or the other chuckle by throwing around random quotes and references.
The latter do never really add up to much more than intellectual name dropping.
The core of the movie is about characters that all talk to each other under the threat of guns and violence, and finally in fact kill each other, following Tarantino's inability to bring out humanity in his characters and his spasmodic focus on glorified movie violence.
The characters aren't really very plausible or deep under the hood. Aldo Raine is smirky Brad Pitt, "Bear Jew" is Hostel director Eli Roth.
Admittedly, this movie is far more watchable than the fake pathos of "Valkyrie", but shows no respect or reference to the actual times and the troubles of the people then - the fear, the plight, the motivations.
Even the Nazi's are depicted as assholes in every respect of their character, when in fact it is known that many had a very tender, self-contradictory side to them as well that makes our modern minds shudder in confusion.
"Frederik Zoller" for example has the violation of Shosanna already on his mind, is a rather unrealistic turn of events that seems to be in place only to make the gun showdown between the two characters possible. Invent the evil where you can't really find it. (Not that the Nazis hadn't done enough to justify armed defence).
The audience on the other hand is supposed to identify with Aldo Raine, a tumb "Carve-the-swastika-into-the-forehead" kind of guy.
That's what real GUYS are like in Tarantino films.
But it doesn't stop there, the script caters to homophobia in multiple ways in the way Nazis are characterized and adressed (pecker sucker, etc.).
Tarantino can definitely shove his macho homophobia violence spasm up his haemorrhaged behind. :P
