What a great movie. Just saw it a few hours ago and I just loved it. Definitely going to be a DVD buy for me, so many crazy tension moments, and so many funny parts also.

What did you guys think

Also enjoyed it. I loved the part where Hans ordered the pastries for Shoshanna.

In fact every scene with Hans was just excellent.

So great. I am glad others enjoyed it.

Hah Hans was pretty funny. Loved the part where he is trying to negotiate the deal, "BINGO!" and his crazy laugh haha.

I thought Kill Bill, especially part 2, confirmed to me that Tarantino is real but this movie just took my respect for him to a whole new level.

The danger of a Tarantino is that a lot of screenwriters are going to yet again try to imitate his style. He is probably the most influential person to film makers and screenwriters of the past 20 years, but his is a singular talent. Yeah, he rips off themes, but his dialogue is really something else, and it allows him to get away with things that almost nobody else can. Like, um, not really using 3 act structure. Didn't give Basterds a lot of thought, but I'm pretty sure it didn't follow 3 Act structure. But it still worked. Why? Because every scene was interesting. The movie never stalls because each scene is so charming and tense and original in its own little way. It's almost like watching America's Funniest Home Videos in a way. No story, like a Sopranos or The Wire, but still interesting because every minute is so amusing.

Anyway, was blown away by it. Exceeded all my expectations.

Sick movie, I absolutely loved it. I never laughed so much in my life...except maybe during an actual comedy movie.

Hans Landa was ridiculously good (the farmer and pastry scenes), but I definitely enjoyed Pitt's performance as well.

it did use the 3 Act structure and can guarantee Tarrantino put alot of thought into the movie

Act I: the Setup - The scene at the farmhouse and the girl Shosanna escaping and the inevitable introduction of the basterds sets up what ensues for the remainder of the movie

Act II: Confrontation - classic good vs evil, the basterds motive of taking **** scalps is obvious along with Shosanna wanting revenge for her family's murder

Act III - Resolution - Shosanna takes revenge with the movie theatre scene along with the basterds carrying out their mission


Pulp Fiction also uses the 3 act structure, but its simply not linear in the way the story is told.. Tarrantino doesnt break these rules, he just has a different take on them which has paved the way for other movies that have adopted this style of movie making

I haven't seen a good Tarantino movie since Pulp Fiction. Is this it? Critical reception suggests not, citing the usual problems of gratuitously long dialogue scenes and throwaway violence. Is is worth seeing?

By the way, the use of a frame story in filmmaking isn't something Tarantino invented in Pulp Fiction, of course. However many people appear to have been dazzled into thinking this.

Saw it the night it came out. It was decent. Funny, sick and had a decent story. That one French chick with the red dress at the end was quite good looking, IMO.

No. It's fictional.

A literary device where the main story is used as a device to tell smaller stories.

And your breakdown doesn't prove 3 Act structure. For example, what's the inciting action at the end of your theorized Act 1?Pulp Fiction also uses the 3 act structure, but its simply not linear in the way the story is told...Pretty sure it doesn't.

This isn't an insult. He can get away with it. It's cool.

Saw an advanced preview a couple of weeks ago, GREAT film. Ive always enjoyed his movies, I like how you can spot a movie of his a mile off. Great style and I thought Pitt was hilarious.
I loved the slow build up long scenes.

the 3 act structure is simply that, a framework to work around, i wasnt referring to the structure as far as him putting thought into the movie

The inciting action was the murder of that family.. that set up for what occurs during the next act and ultimately the third act..

This is just my interpretation of how the movie is played out keeping to the structure.. why dont you think it has structure?

This isn't an insult. He can get away with it. It's cool

Pulp uses a prologue and epilogue technique (the pumpkin/honey bunny scenes), much like saving private ryan uses the bookend technique with 'Old' Ryan beginning and ending the story

so with the pumpkin/honey bunny scenes, their discussion sets up the scene, the robbery is the inciting incident, and the confrontation and resolution occur at the end of the movie.. The end is nicely tied into what occurs during the bulk of the movie

The rest of the movie is really 3 stories centred around the main incident, being the retrieval of the briefcase and how they miraculously survived the shootout.. each story though has structure, they all have a beginning, middle and end. Each section in effect is like a short story which branches off from this key incident with the briefcase, each told from different points of view..

Some of the dialogue felt long, but it was always intriguing. There was a moment in the movie where I said to myself, "wow, this is a lot of dialogue, but how come I'm not bored?" This was during the scene where von Hammersmark gets introduced. Oh yeah, the opening act was incredible.

s it worth seeing?

Yes.
