Day #30 - Inglourious Basterds

Movie #28

Inglourious Basterds

What a thrilling ride!

Here WWII is revamped Tarantino style; with lots of gores, operatic moments, Christoph Waltz and nazi scalps; into a revenge story. Tarantino brought his A-game, with a dominating Mise en scène and a fantastic cast of characters; Waltz's Col. Hans (The Jew Hunter), Brad Pitt's Lt. Aldo Raine, Eli Roth's Sgt. Donowitz (The Bear Jew), Mélanie Laurent's Emmanuelle Mimieux and Diane Kruger's Bridget von Hammersmark.

And Martin Wuttke's impression as Adolf Hitler was hilarious.

This is one thoroughly entertaining movie.

NB - The carving of swastikas into the foreheads was epic!
