Movie Review: Inglourious Basterds

Monday, November 23, 2009
I watched "Inglourious Basterds" at the McMenamins Kennedy School the other night. This is Quentin Tarantino's latest film, following the exploits of a Jewish-American team of guerilla fighters (and a traumatized teenage girl) in Nazi-occupied France.

This isn't going to be a super-long review, because I honestly didn't think much of the film. Nothing about the movie screamed "great". Perhaps it was that the movie definitely felt like a comfortable Quentin Tarantino film, or perhaps because the whole "alternate history" genre has never really resonated with me, but the movie simply wasn't that captivating.

Except for Christoph Waltz. He managed to steal every scene he was in, and not only made the characters on the screen uncomfortable, he made everyone in the audience uncomfortable. He was a perfect antagonist; he smiled a little too broadly, he laughed a little too hard, and he committed violence with little warning. He played the role to perfection; give him an award!

Final word on Inglorious Basterds? Worth renting simply to watch Christoph Waltz, but don't have high expectations for anything else about the film.
