‘Basterds’ a new gem from Tarantino

Daniel Sandoval

Quentin Tarantino has done it again! With his weaving storylines, unrestrained violence and vintage style, he knocked this one out of the park.

This movie, like most of Tarantino movies, takes on a common genre and puts a new twist on it. Most of the movie takes place in Nazi-occupied France during the 1940s but had a modern vintage feel synonymous with many of Tarantino’s works.

The film follows a group of American special operations soldiers called “The Basterds” that has been deployed into Germany since before D-Day to kill as many Nazi Germans as possible.

Right off the bat, the near-perfect casting is apparent when Brad Pitt and former writer/director Eli Roth are joined by the likes of Diane Kruger, Mike Myers and Omar Doom.

The shooting and directing are superb; so much so that the two-hour and 33-minute movie feels like it goes by in a flash.

The violence and novelty spectacle even manages to be overshadowed by the witty dialogue and intersecting storylines.

This movie is easily my favorite Tarantino movie I’ve ever seen in theatres.

I highly recommend this and I believe this film will be regarded in the realm of another “Pulp fiction” or “Reservoir Dogs”

It’s no wonder why “Inglourious Basterds” has reached the No. 1 spot at the box office, grossing approximately $37.6 million last weekend.
