What did you think?

I thought Brad Pitt's neck scar was perfect throughout, while his Southern accent was spotty and fake. The bad guy German detective was brilliant, the strudel (or whatever that was) scene was just the best.

As usual, Tarentino came across with lots of visual surprises, the shooting scene in the projection room was amazing.

I thought the scalping was gross, and a cursory nod to the Indian heritage of BP, but really unnecessary.

A pretty unsettling movie, but entertaining and thought provoking. My dos pesos.

Have as good a day as you can.

I too saw IB over the weekend.

I thought Brad Pitt was at times over the top, very much the way he handled himself in BURN WITHOUT READING, and very similar in style to his buddy George Clooney, who often appears to emulate the late Clark Gable. Do they have the same acting coach?

The baseball bat scene was so f-ing over the top that was howling with laughter. Others in the theater stared at me like was a serial murderer. But, I know Quentin Tarantino was laughing, so I have no shame.

The German dude, Christoph Waltz, absolutely stole the show.

Pretty much on target, I thought:

[Mark Suszko] "Pretty much on target, I thought: "

But, does he really like Quentin Tarantino films?

I caught Inglourious Basterds on opening night and have been wanting to get back to the theatre to watch it again. I too laughed out loud and felt a stare or two during that baseball bat scene. I knew it was coming but never stopped to think that Tarantino would actually show it, then again, its Tarantino and why wouldn't he?? So when I saw it... I laughed!

But enough about the baseball bat scene, how about scene #1. The film opens with a super multi-leveled scene that one could actually physically "cut the tension with a knife." The pipe was brilliant and perfectly timed.

Christoph Waltz = Oscar. Strudel = wanted some w/ cream. Mr. Waltz' delivery of lines was absolutely brilliant. Often times I caught myself wondering through his line delivery whether or not he "knew" and was just testing, or if he didn't know and coincidentally said something pertinent to "us" as the audience. Excellent.

Yes!!! It was very reminiscent in some ways of the scene between Chris Walken and Dennis Hopper in True Romance, only more advanced and more subtle.

You have good insight Aaron. Hope you share more with us here on this forum.

Thank you Mr. Weiss. I've been reading these forums for years and this is the first time I saw this particular forum!!! I love it!!! To be able to speak your mind about whichever film you want, and not have to worry about people blasting you for it. Its soooo subjective anyway. Everyone has a different opinion about movies and we're all critics whether we want to admit it or not. Interesting to me to read what others thought on the films. Glad to have found it and looking to post more in the future.

A Reaber Dare Chee... HAHA!!... good times!!

cheers to future viewings!! =)

Brad's accent was accented BUT he was born in Oklahoma, raised in Missouri and spent the past 5 years in New Orleans. Have you heard yourself, have you ever been picked on for your accent? I have and from someone MORE southern (according to my ears). If you are from Maynardville with a population of less than 2,000 and if you are from Indian decent and if you were in the military and if you were 30 in 1940 and if you are part Indian then you may judge a fake accent.
