Inglourious Basterds

Ryan and I went and saw Inglourious Basterds last night and had a very enjoyable time. I have to say, 99% of Quentin Tarantino’s movies get my stamp of approval. If you don't like his type of movie, you probably won't enjoy this one. It is pretty long (over 2.5 hours long), but we stayed interested the whole time. Rather bloody and gory, but hey, that's what makes it fun. (PS MOM YOU WILL LOVE IT :), BUT YOU MAY HAVE TO GO BY YOURSELF, I DON'T THINK IT IS A DAD TYPE MOVIE :) ).

In the final scene of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, Brad Pitt looks directly at the camera and sneers. His final line of dialogue is simply, “I think I’ve made my masterpiece.” With that line of dialogue the entire cinema I was in broke out in cheers. This is not a movie you should see with stuffy film critics looking to break down everything wrong with a movie. This is not a movie you see in a half empty theater on a warm afternoon. This is a movie you see in a theater filled to the brim with Quentin Tarantino fans. I saw this at a theater fitting that description during the movie’s midnight showing with a loud energetic crowd, and I have not been entertained by a movie like this in a long time. Is this Tarantino’s masterpiece? No, that would still be Pulp Fiction. But if you are a real fan of Quentin Tarantino, Inglourious Basterds is the most fun you will have at the movies this year.

I found this review here (but a heads up, it does go into a lot of detail, so it you plan on seeing it I would not read it until after).
