Inglourious Basterds

Quentin, I loved you and your movies before but now I worship the ground you walk on!

Finally, FINALLY, someone had the guts to show the Jews not as victims but to show them giving Nazis the ultimate taste of their own medicine. In some eyes it might be a reverse form of Schadenfreude.

It's sort of equal justice. And let me tell you, I did feel damn good seeing the tables being turned!

All this talk about Quentin Tarantino's movie being blood-soaked and stale - it is not. Of course there's bats, blood and bullets (it's a Tarantino for god's sake) but there's so much more to it. We finally see the true nature of the Nazis (I never loathe one of Waltz's character more - Landa is so incredibly obnoxious and sadistic) and the Jews taking a stand. They are fed up. And they're not going to take it anymore.

Tarantino has a number of big action scenes but it is the run-ups to those scenes, beginning with the very first sequence, that have more impact than the climaxes of actual violence.

In my honest opinion: this is his masterpiece. And it is definitely worth watching.
