Inglourious Basterds: Oscar Nominee

I am attempting to watch all the Oscar nominated movies for 2010 (which I'm not too thrilled about) and have so far reviewed Up and District 9.

I'll admit, I was pretty stoked about this one. Quentin Tarantino= good. Brad Pitt= good. People killing Nazis= good.

But this was a HUGE let down... HUGE. I didn't mind that it was not factual in the least. A group of guys seek to kill a whole bunch of Nazis. That's the premise. And they do. A woman seeks revenge against the Nazi that killed her family. And she gets it- kinda. Sure, there were lines here and there that were funny, sure it was cool to see bad guys get theirs, but I did not like the ending and I was pretty bored with the whole thing, which is weird for Tarantino. I'm not even sure why this was nominated. And I hate when the people that I want to die don't and the people I want to live don't.

Family Time Factor: Adults only, serious content and gore.

MOTR Grade
: D+ (keep in mind, it has to be REALLY bad to get an F, which I've reserved so far for Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanemo Bay.)


  1. I've heard a lot of mixed reviews about this one. I'm still on the fence as to whether I'm going to watch it or not.
    I happened to like Harold and Kumar. Definitely not one for kids, but I got a lot of laughs out of it.

  2. Really!>!>! That is a shame, I've heard mixed reviews too. I guess I'll have to check it out... I mean I am half Jewish so seeing Nazi's die is sort of something that interest me.

  3. Terra- I thought the original Harold and Kumar was hilarious... the second one was horrible IMO!

    Sarah- I can see how you'd want to watch Nazis die, but... (big secret)... they aren't real Nazis- they are actors and the whole thing is fake! LOL
