I saw Inglourious Basterds yesterday afternoon. I wanted to see the first showing but I arrived a little too late but before the start of the movie. The line was too long that I turned back to see the second showing. I rarely see lines like that but it was not sunny thus more people. About 150-200 were already seated and that, I did not expect for a second showing. I imagine the night would be pack.

What is Inglourious Basterds ?

A commando of jewish soldiers are dropped behind ennemy line during WW2 to kill nazis.

The review

The Inglourious Basterds is 2h33 with almost 15 minutes of previews. For a war movie, I was disappointed by the lack of action. Don't get wrong, it does have some and very graphic but watching the trailers, I expected more of that. Instead, it's more a dialogue centric movie and funny at times. Those are very good dialogues. Since I saw the English version, I also had to read part of the movie. It was no problem with the French parts but for the German and Italian part, I had to read. You must remember it's a Tarantino movie thus have it's own style.

Brad Pitt is good and Mélanie Laurent, Christoph Waltz are good too.


Inglourious Basterds is a movie that is not a must see movie in theater. You can wait for the DVD or even on premium TV channels.
