Topic: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

I love when people write reviews, I do....but this is a horror site and I see right now two reviews for Inglourious Basterds.  That's not a horror movie, I saw it.  It's amazing but in not in the least horror.  I think they are well written reviews, but I think we should draw the line somewhere.  I mean, I saw The Time Traveler's Wife but I'm not reviewing it on here, ya know?

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

Good point Garden, but people love this film so much, that they want to write reviews on it I guess. I know I did. But still, good point!:)

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

there is a sister site to this site called www.moviesonline.ca where mainstream movies are talked and reviewed on......it's got most the people from here, including yours truly on it!  I'd check it out.  But I don't want to make you feel bad, either because I am a HUGE supporter of reviews, I review everything I can.

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

Meh made an exception for I.B.  He does that from time to time.  Mainly, he knows it's a film that a lot of people will see and a lot of others will be curious about.  Horror fans are typically Tarantino fans to boot so it makes sense to do this every now and again if you think about it.  He isn't exactly mainstream most of the time.  He has his own category. 

Oh, AND Tarantino is badass as I stated earlier.  tongue

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

Really I just wrote a review cause like 3 or 4 others did b4 me lol

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

Maves, I just read your review on MO.ca and it's fantastic, and I totally agree.  I thought it was one of the best movies of the year.  Now.....The Final Destination and Halloween 2 and I'm not seeing a movie for a while

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

Why thanks, darlin.  smile  I do what I can.  LOL  I appreciate you reading it and I DEFINITELY appreciate the compliment.  You are a sweetie.  XOXO

As for The Final Destination and Halloween 2, I will be reviewing FD Friday night and Bo is taking H2.  So, look for the Last Blog links on Facebook that night if you wanna see what we have to say.  wink

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

I saw Inglorious Basterds on Saturday. I thought it was good but nothing amzing like some of you are saying it is. H2 is going to blow it away.

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

H2 is going to be the most fantastical movie ever!  I hope

I thought it was illegal for cops to use crack.  lol

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

I am NOT a Tarantino fan at all, nor am I a Rob Zombie Halloween fan but I will probably see both and will give you my opinions

my predictions: Inglorious Basterds will be extremely dialog heavy making dull and tediously boring, because after all it's Tarantino. H2 will be unnecessarily over violent and finish killing off all of what Michael Myers once stood for.

Well see if I'm right or wrong soon

I don't do drugs named after body parts. Until they make something called Pussy Puffs or Vaginatol I'll stick with that rule.

I have a sinking feeling that you are going to be 100% right.

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

I like Tarantino's dialouge. I think it's one of the best parts in a Quentin Tarantino film.

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

Yeah, I have friends who say that his movies talk too much and I'm like, "take some fucking ritalin".  But I watch foreign movies all the time so I'm used to reading movies so I have a high patience.

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

Tarantino writes some of the best dialog out there.  That is his strong suit and I never get enough of it.  smile

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

IB is covered on this site because Eli Roth is a "Horrible" actor. lol
But I still plan on seeing it. big_smile

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

I thought Eli Roth did a good job playing his part.

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

I saw IB today....enjoyed it, some thoughts: 

1) Not enough of the Basterds.  Really, other than their initial attack/interrogation scene, we really dont get enough of them doing what it is they do best: killing Nazi's. 

2) Yes I complaied earlier about Tarantino dialog being too much(which it is....his scripts are unnecessarily wordy)  and again this movie was about 20 minutes longer cause of rambling scenes, but the problem is that many scenes that went on way too long seemed to be the parts that tried didnt involve the Basterd and tried to "set things up" .  The story is pretty simple, so it's not like you need these 20 minute bridge segments to set up the story.  It just seemed to focus too much on certain parts that I didnt think needed it and trying to develop characters which didnt really succeed.  I mean the scene in the farmhouse? Way too long.  The Scene in the basement bar?  Way too long.  Considering how simple the story is these "filler material" parts trying to connect the story just seemed overly long and really could of been scaled back and had the same effect. 

3) I had a hard time taking a few of the basterds seriously because of some of their previous films.....not their fault but come on...BJ Novak and Samm Levine are not the definition of anything close to tough bad ass Nazi killers......

4) I wanted to hate Eli Roth (because I do) but his role was so easy even a caveman could do it.  (Sorry Geico!)  So Kudo's to him for not screweing up the "menacing guy with a bat" routine......on a side note: when did he get the Zachary Quinto eyebrows???

overall I'd give it a 7 out of 10, making it my second highest rated Tarantino film....(all his movies clock in at 5 or less on my radar, minus resevoir dogs) so my rating is a compliment.  I just think if he would learn to cut the arthouse crap filler material his films would be much more fluid.

Oh one more thing: anyone else think there were some terrible soundtrack choices?  Some music was cool but some was downright awful.

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

I wrote the first review for Basterds in part because I would be the first and because it's got some wikked KNB effects.

I feel no shame big_smile

P.S. I was going to write it for Movies on Line (of which I'm not a member) but they ask that reviews not contain swears. And I like vulgarity.

Again, no shame wink

Fuck you Rob Zombie. Eat my balls.

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

I've seen Hogan's Heroes.  wink

Re: Why is Inglorious Basterds on this site?

Ah, if only Tarantino could have landed Richard Dawson and Bob Crane.  Oh, if only Bob Crane hadn't died such a horrible death, thereby preventing him from being in the film. I always loved that side-cocked hat he wore.  smile

Did you love his amateur porn addiction as well wink If so, I have this movie I would like you to be in....
