inglourious-basterdsFrom Tony over at the Cinema Viewfinder:

“We will be cruel to the Germans, and through our cruelty they will know who we are. They will find the evidence of our cruelty in the disemboweled, dismembered, disfigured bodies of their brothers we leave behind us, and the Germans will not be able to help themselves from imagining the cruelty their brothers endured at our hands, at our boot heels, and the edge of our knives. And the Germans will be sickened by us, the Germans will talk about us, and the Germans will fear us. Nazis ain’t got no humanity! They need to be destroyed.” – Lt. Aldo Raine

Happy Monday everyone. Hope you all had a great weekend. Let’s get down to some way overdue business, and discuss the big movie this weekend, and perhaps this year, Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. I saw it at noon on Friday, but held back on discussing it here for two reasons. One was my desire to contemplate the film a little longer than I usually do with other movies because it is complicated enough to merit such pondering. Notice I say complicated, not profound… more on that later. The second reason is because I plan on discussing it in toto, spoilers included. So anyone who hasn’t seen it, please skip the rest of this post, go see it (requirement: you must see it in a theater), and come back once you have. Trust me, whether you end up liking the film or not, this is one flick that every movie lover should add to their lexicon.
