Inglorious

Once more I am not completely up to date with my movie watching. But I have finally managed to watch the latest Tarantino film Inglorious Basterds.

It's quite an unusual fiom for a major American production. For one thing large parts of the movie are in languages other than English (French, German and Italian). But it is most definitely a Tarantino film.

The Basterds are a group of Jewish American soldiers on a covert operation in World War II Europe with a mission to kill Nazis lead by Brad Pitt. They're quite good at it too. And they're going to get incolved in a plot to kill Hitler and the higher-ups of the Nazi Government.

There are some moments of serious tension in this movie, some strong violence and the usual over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek Tarantino brilliance. Yes, I am a fan boy but this is Tarantino back to his best.
