Inglorious Basterds

3 out of 5 Stars
Some amazing acting (Brad Pitt, Eli Roth, Diane Kruger, Melanie Laurent, et al). Tarantino had some excellent cinematic moments. Oddly enough, I would have thought that scalping Nazis would have made for a more in depth story arch. Instead, I left the theater feeling disappointed -- two wrongs will never make a right. Although I do respect Tarantino, I worry he will never live up to the brilliance of 'Pulp Fiction'.

March 2010 I saw this movie on DVD after Kill Bill (I & II) in February.
Scalping the nazi's wasn't the best part of the movie. The scene withy the death silence at the table where Shosanna Dreyfus (Melanie Laurent) met Hans Landa (Chritof Waltz), murderer of her family.
Maybe I should watch it again looking for hidden subtile messages.
