I really want to see this movie. Which is odd because i'm just not really a movie person, and I don't care for Brad Pitt.

Has anyone seen this yet? I'm wondering just how bloody violent it is. I don't mind violent, but Quentin Tarantino movies are usually pretty bloody, and I can't usually stomach too much of that. I really want to see this, but i'm wondering if I should just wait for the DVD and let my husband screen the movie for me first. lol

Well since my favorite movies are Hallmark Hall of Fame. someone else might be a better judge. I just send my son and DH to those other kinds, and rent a Sandra Bullock or Meg Ryan..

I've heard that this is by far the most gory violent QT movie ever. Just a head's up.

Yeah, apparently there is scalping in it... I want to see it though. I don't mind bloody as long as it's not in a horror movie. Quentin Tarantino's has never bothered me for some reason.

Two people I know have seen the film. The husband rather liked it. The wife said, 'Trust me; this is not something you want to remember.' Apparently it's really bloody, though there's some indication the mayhem is less gratuitous than usual for a Tarentino movie.

So far, I have found his stuff mostly boring and derivative, relying heavily on the thumping heart you get when seeing extreme gore. Even though Pulp Fiction had its moments, I am not inclined spend money to encourage the silly bugger to produce more drivel.

There are parts of this movie that are quite good: Christoph Waltz as the Nazi Colonel is excellent as is Brad Pitt in his abbreviated role. The music is good; the photography fabulous.

However, there were too many parts that, in my opinion, were not enjoyable. Some violence doesn't bother me if it seems warranted (like a war movie) but this was to the point I was closing my eyes. They were enjoying it too much and I do not care for that. There was one very long boring scene and I started nodding off. It's a long movie. My DH reminded me that it was a Tarentino movie, but ugh.

And, I STILL haven't seen a movie this year that I would vote for being anywhere close to one of the "best". It's been a very disappointing year so far.

I have seen this and it is in many ways the typical Quentin Tarantino film; lots of graphic violence, swearing, and talking (the film is about 2.5+hrs long). The movie also is very heavy on subtitles, easily 3/4 of the film is in german and french (this bothers a few of my friends; they just don't like to read subtitles). I enjoyed it for the photography and some of the acting and the plot but not the violence. I watched those bits with my eyes closed and I opened them when the gunfire stopped and/or the audience stopped gasping.

Have you seen "Up"? It was great. Maybe it's not 'best movie' material, but I really enjoyed it. I'm not a sap and that movie made me cry. Best movie I've seen of the year. Plus, seeing it in 3D was so cool!

I'll probably just wait for Inglourious Basterds to come out on DVD. All movies go to DVD so fast now that I don't bother to pay $10-$11 to see a movie in theaters unless it's one with great special effects that should be seen on a big screen. (Remember when a good movie used to take a year and a half - or more - to come out on video? LOL.)

Funny you should mention "Up" because I almost said it was the best movie we'd seen all year. Yes, it was very entertaining as well as poignant. I sat there with tears in my eyes during the whole first part of the movie! So sweet and yet so sad.

We have tickets to see Inglourious Basterds this weekend--I can report back afterwards. Although, be forewarned that we're both big Tarantino fans. I loved both Kill Bill movies, so while I usually dislike gratuitous violence, Tarantino's stuff is usually so cartoonish that it doesn't bother me at all. (More full disclosure--we have a cat named after "Ash" from the Evil Dead movies.)

I know these were part of last year's Oscar race, but easily the two "best" movies I've seen this year were The Wrestler and Slumdog Millionaire. As far as movies this summer go, Star Trek was a lot of fun, and I loved Julie & Julia. I'd highly recommend Julie & Julia to any of the foodies on this board.
