Inglourious Basterds

The new Tarantino flick is fantastic.

Inglourious Basterds is a war movie like no other, with a distinct flavour that could only be Quintin. I read the script when it leaked back in February and have been eagerly anticipating this film ever since. It did not disappoint. An excellent cast brings QT's words to life in English French and German(a tiny bit of Italian too).

It's not as much an action film as Kill Bill, but still has all the hyper-violence you would expect from the Indie Master. It's very funny too, as long as you can laugh at Nazis being brutalized.

At first I thought this movie was in the genre of historical fantasy, but now I think it is supposed to be an actual 1940's war movie that, true to it's genre doubles as a propaganda piece. Tarantino is brilliant, I bow before him.
