| Waltz is a Genius!!!!!
I had the PRIVILEGE of attending the UK premier of Inglorious Basterds this evening! Having seen the trailers i had high hopes but had doubts due to a string of self indulgent films (c'mon lets be honest, self indulgence is his tarantinos middle name)

I was surprised to find though that he had pulled the cat out of the bag with this one. The film is rich with interesting dialogue, Perfect timed comedy with a dash of brutal assassination.

The crowning glory of this film though lies with Christoph Waltz whom no fault or error can be found. He manages to create a real tension in the audience whilst remaining quite "theatrical" (couldn't think of a better word). He definitely deserved his prize at Cannes and is heading for an Oscar no doubt!!!! Hoping to see him in something again soon!

Trivia

A very fine, but very accurate historic detail in the script, lost to most, occurs whenever German Army (Heer) or Nazi Party Schutzstaffel (S.S.) characters speaks to or of S.S. personnel. The S.S. were not members of the Heer or German Military (Wehrmacht), and used different rank titles, but often wore Wehrmacht rank insignia on their uniforms. Hicox, Wicki, and Stiglitz (when meeting in the basement tavern) and Landa and Hellstrom wore Schutzstaffel (S.S.) uniforms. The Heer and S.S. characters use the actual S.S. rank titles such as Standartenführer, Sturmbannführer, Hauptsturmführer, and Obersturmführer. However, French, German civilian (von Hammersmark) and American and Brit (except when acting as Germans) characters refer to the S.S. characters by the Heer rank equivalents of Colonel/Oberst, Major, Captain/Hauptmann, Senior Lieutenant/Oberleutnant. Regardless of the title spoken, the subtitles always use Heer ranks in English.


Quotes

Shosanna Dreyfus: Bring that fucker over here!


Goofs

In the tavern, the Gestapo major demonstrates his knowledge of German accents as if he had a superior talent for it. However, this isn't impressive at all, once you consider that the English language equivalent would be the ability to distinguish between accents from places such as Cornwall, Birmingham, Newcastle, Edinburgh etc.


Crazy Credits

The film uses the 1963-1990 Universal Pictures logo.


Alternate Versions

In the German version, the French dialogs referring to English language ("anglais") have been re-dubbed to refer to German ("allemand"), as English dialogs have been dubbed into German. Also, in the scene with Private Butz the translations from German into English and vice versa have been re-dubbed into ironic comments by Wilhelm Wicki (which would not make sense otherwise, as both Aldo Raine and Pvt. Butz are talking German in the German dub).
