    Inglourious Basterds

    Who saw it this weekend? I know Tarantino can be polarizing...

    I think it's his best film yet, though. The cast was incredible, the characters were great. Every last Tarantino flourish worked to perfection.

    I don't know the last time I had that much fun in a movie theatre (probably the Grindhouse double feature showing, to be honest.)
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Everything up until the shabby ending ...for me..as i felt it went off the deep end. Yes...I know it's a movie but something just left me thinking....this could have ended better.

    The opening chapter/scene was amazing.

    Christopher Waltz's character was one of the best cinematic villains ever.

    Love love loved the movie.

    EDIT: And the ending I thought was great. Everyone expects it to end a certain way and be every other fictional World War 2 movie ever, but Tarantino knew it would be more surprising and fun to end it with some justice.

    Hm, I understand what you're saying.

    In my personal opinion, I don't think a Tarantino film could have had a better ending. Absolutely perfect over-the-top action.

    I can say without reservation...I am in a big minority of not liking the ending. I just thought them not being able to kill Adolf, Joseph, Martin and Herman would have made for a better ending....despite the fact they were all there.

    Besides.... they forgot about Himmler. he had plenty of power with his SS.

    The dialogue was top notch.
