| He loves his movies, doesn't he?
Everything is forgiven because "Inglorious Basterds" is so entertaining and at the end of the day that'ìs what matters. I think it's a pity that certain critics, specially in Italy, are determined to transform this clever pulp director into some kind of god. Maybe, partly, because Tarantino has been very clever, elevating some of the Italian pulp movies of the 60's and 70's to a sort of cult status. Italy is very grateful for that, he's rewarded with interminable praise. I fear that's the wrong approach, it's also confusing. He makes popcorn movies, brilliantly. The characters have never anything important to say, Burger King, Superman, that's the extent of its depth and I think he's tapping into a society that's getting shallower and shallower with every passing year. But, if I'm mentioning this instead of talking about all the great things I could be saying about his movie is because there is a strange force trying to brain wash me into believing that Tarantino is the most important influence in movies since time immemorial. No, he's a great director of inconsequential fun movies. I consider myself a fan and I intend to see all his future movies. This one has some wonderful touches, winking at other movies by John Sturges, Robert Aldrich etc. Brad Pitt and in particular Christoph Waltz give wonderful performances. Waltz is at the center of my favorite scenes in the film. Enjoy this movies for what it is and not for what critics are saying it is. You'll enjoy it even more that way.

Trivia

In the scene where Lieutenant Aldo Raine is being interrogated by Colonel Hans Landa. Brad Pitt mentions that prior to the war, while home in Tennessee, he had partaken in bootlegging. In Legends Of The Fall (1994), Pitt's character of Tristan Ludlow made a profit as a small time bootlegger.


Quotes

Winston Churchill: You say he wants to take on the Jews, at their own game? Well, compared to, say, Louis B. Mayer... how's he doing?
Lt. Archie Hicox: Quite well, actually. Since Goebbels has taken over, film attendance has steadily risen in Germany over the last eight years. But, ...
Winston Churchill: ...


Goofs

Shoshanna's red dress worn has "invisible" plastic coil zippers inserted in the sleeve ends and center back, a technology that did not exist during WW2. Invisible zippers are a clean solution but no doubt, the designer didn't anticipate a close up of the inside sleeve, nor the evidential zipper pull at the dress center back.


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).
