If ever a director has suffered a steep decline from the very summit of Hollywood its Quentin Tarantino. How did we get from Pulp Fiction to Death Proof?? He didn't even have time to plant his flag pole he slid down the other side that fast. What on Earth was that self parody Kill Bill nonsense...

Hollywood's once famous nerdy director crawls out of the glitz to show us his new slaughterfest film, Inglorious Basterds. This guy certainly has a knack for prize dialogue. With the words, "Watching Donny beat Nazis to death is the closest we ever get to going to the movies," Tarantino justifies...

am a huge fan of Quentin Tarrantino, the writer/director who has just brought the misspelt Inglourious Basterds to our screens. I have to admit, I was a bit worried about how the master of gangster flicks and street dialogue would do with a war film set in the 1940s, but am happy to report that...

Inglorious Basterds is Tarantino's latest offering and some have argued his return to form. A loose remake (or just title borrowing may be more apt) of a little known movie from the 70's the film is about a group of US Nazi Killers led by Aldo Raine (Brad Bitt) whose sole objective is to head to...

ConsQuite Long

Many wondered after the much-maligned Deathproof whether Quentin Tarantino had started to lose his touch. It's not that it was a terrible movie, it just didn't quite hit the stratospheric levels of excellence associated with the work of the great director. We needn't have worried though. His...

Inglorious Basterds is one of those films that you can tell is going to be really good or really bad, as is the case with most Tarantino films and this one definitely comes under really good. I love the slower paced long films and that is why The Godfather is my favourite and many others...

Product Information : Inglourious Basterds(DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

A group of hardened Nazi killers stalk their prey in Nazi-occupied France as a Jewish cinema owner plots to take down top-ranking SS officers during the official premiere of a high-profile German propaganda film. As far as Lieutenant Aldo Raine (aka Aldo 'the Apache', Brad Pitt) -- is concerned, the only good Nazi is a dead Nazi. Raine's mission is to strike fear into the heart of Adolf Hitler by brutally murdering as many goose-steppers as possible, or die trying. In order to accomplish that goal, Lt. Raine recruits a ruthless team of cold-blooded killers known as 'The Basterds', which includes baseball-bat-wielding Bostonian Sgt. Donnie Donowitz (aka 'The Bear Jew', Eli Roth) and steely psychopath Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz (Til Schweiger), among others. When the Basterds' secret rendezvous with turncoat German actress Bridget von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger) goes awry, they learn that the Nazis will be staging the French premiere of 'The Nation's Pride', a rousing propaganda film based on the exploits of German hero Fredrick Zoller (Daniel Brühl), at a modest theatre owned by Jewish cinephile Shoshanna Dreyfus (Mélanie Laurent), posing as a Gentile after the brutal murder of her family by the ruthless Col. Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz). As the Basterds hatch an explosive plan to take out as many Nazis as possible at the premiere, they remain completely oblivious to the fact that Shoshanna, too, longs to bring the Third Reich to its knees, and that she's willing to sacrifice her beloved theatre in the process.
