So I ventured out to the movies last night and braved the mobs of teenagers to see Quentin Tarantino’s latest masterpiece “Inglourious Basterds” starring Brad Pitt. Now let me preface by saying I love Tarantino movies. And I loved Basterds. Kinda.
It was classic Quentin and visually you will not be disappointed. I enjoyed the dialouge, but the plot ran a little thin. It’s divided into chapters, and there’s plenty of gun fights and gore to keep you happy.
It feels like a long movie in someplaces and drags on in others. I feel like the climax should have been longer but all the loose ends get tied up nicely enough. I would have loved a little backstory on the Basterds themselves though the guy who plays Lands more then makes up for it with his delivery alone. All in all, great flick. 3 1/2 out of 5.
