Review: Inglourious Basterds


"If you ever wanna eat a Sauerkraut sandwich again take your Wiener Schnitzel lickin' finger and point out on this map what I wanna know." from Brad Pitt's character, Aldo Raine.


If Brad Pitt and his motely crew showed up in the movie more and if it was shorter by a half-hour, I would've given the movie 4.5 stars . And it's not because I'm in love with Brad Pitt (I'm more of a Keanu Reeves type of girl) but because he and his outfit stole the movie. Okay, so I looked away during the scalping scenes (ewwww...gross).

There were parts of the movie where I laughed and the audience didn't. I either have a strange sense of humor or the audience just didn't get it. Like the above quote said in Pitt's Tennesse Twang and the following "You probably heard we ain't in the prisoner-takin' business; we in the killin' Nazi business. And cousin, Business is a-boomin'.

No reaction from the audience. Me? I'm cracking up. So is my husband. (probably why we've be married 24 years)

Verdict: If you are Tarantino fan (which I am) or you think you'd like a spagettii western set in WW2 (the music is such a throwback) or you want to see Brad Pitt and Eli Roth incredible performances then go see it.

I give it 4 stars.
