Inglourious Basterds (2009)
When i first heard about this movie, i thought it was going to be just another mostly bad action movie that was going to be decently fun with all it's action. But boy did i find something else when i finally went to see it in the theaters. I didn't get into liking it too much right away, but when i got over how things were unexpected, this became one of my favorite movies.
Plot:The Bastards are a small band of Jewish-American soldiers who have the most colorful and fun way of killing Nazis. They are assigned to take part in invading a theater to kill Hitler and sever other important members of the Nazis while they are watching a movie of a German soldier who survived an invasion of enemies killing about 300 of them.
Now i know this doesn't sound much. But that's because there's a lot of introduction and minor events in this film that i haven't even gone to and I don't care to for those of you who have not seen this movie. all i can tell you is that with the twist and uniqueness of the cast, and the set of stories, it is one of the most unique and fascinating movie i have ever seen in my life.
Brad Pitt/Aldo Raine:one way i didn't like this at first is how there wasn't a whole lot of Brad Pitt right away. He has a completely fun character. It's just all about killing Nazis.
Eli Roth/Donny Donowitz:Does he have a awesome part in this film or what!?!?! that's just fricking bad-a dude.
Melanie Laurent/Shoshanna Dreyfus: she played a very tough character. What really gets you is how she really remains calm even when Landa is in the room and with all the venom she just pours out against her enemies at the end of the night.
Diane Kruger/Bridget von Hammersmark: she did a pretty good job. such as shame things didn't really go well for her at all throughout the film.
and of coarse,
Christopher Waltz/Colonel Hans Landa: Holy freaking gosh! That was on of the best performances i've seen ever! You just don't quite know what to expect from Hans it just really drives you crazy. no one, i repeat, NO ONE! stood a chance against him at the Oscars. i felt like they really started with supporting actor just to get that over with.
Editing: Very clever use like always. It was a good job for Sally Menke before she died. She will be remembered well. Requiescat in Pace (Rest in Peace)
Music: there wasn't much but when there was it definitely worked. especially with the suspenseful music when Shoshanna's family died.
And that my Review for Inglorious Bastards. It's a very exciting and unique movie in incredible acting and a very unique story all around. i don't know about you but I think this is a movie for all of us to remember for a long time. SSSOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUNNNNNDDDD GOOD!?!?!?!
