748 - Inglourious Basterds
Friday, December 18, 2009

Am I the only one who found this film rather poorly written, often boring, and just pretty lame? How does it get 4 stars? For example, Roger Ebert gave this film a 25% better rating than Blade Runner. Yes Blade Runner, one of the best science fiction films ever made. I found the film totally without center; the side stories were decent, but where was the actual core of the film? And how about the somewhat misleading advertising and promotional clips that only showed the Nazi hunters who hardly seem to participate in the film? And, like most films where the director knows just how brilliant he is, it is more than 30 minutes too long. Kill Bill 1 and 2 grew on me after seeing them again, but they still had silly or boring parts. This film is unlikely to go that far. On the plus side, it was a free one.

If there was one good part, it was the out of place use of a David Bowie song called "Cat People." But even this moment failed ultimately because, first of all it has been used in films already, and secondly because using out of place rock songs in films that take place in the 1940s simply isn't that cool anymore. It has been done to death, and there is just nothing witty or interesting about it anymore. Also, try to see how many plastic items you can catch in the film before their widespread use...

    The critics love Tarantino.

    Also, you have a good actor like Brad Pitt and total waste him playing a really boring character who isn't at all funny or interesting.
