My wife loves going to the cinema and seeing movies on the big screen and I do as well but we often have difficulty finding good ones. As a Jew I always feel it’s sort of my duty to see films about Nazis, WWII, Israel, etc., and my wife likes Brad Pitt so we went to see Inglorious Basterds last night.
I read a bit about the plot as well as a few reviews and it seemed that this film would be violent and horrifying – like all Tarantino’s work. I liked Resevoir Dogs – it provided great material for a bunch of great actors – but it was very upsetting to watch. Pulp Fiction was certainly the best movie I’d seen for 10 years before or after but it still gives me bad dreams. Inglourious Basterds is not like that. It does what it has to do but not more in the way of open violence and it is a great film.
The first scene alone makes the film worth viewing. If you want a clue about what millions of jews went through at the hands of the Germans and their collaborators then just go see "Inglourious Basterds." The acting is supurb and filming perfect.
Every American needs to see it to both gain understanding of and to see a portrayal of a global enemy – then we had the Nazis and Germans and Japanese and now we have Islamic Fundamentalism. More importantlyTarantino makes a powerful political statement – one desperately needed in these times of Obama relativism, equivocation, and weakness – there is right and wrong – there is good and evil – and we as individuals naturally know the difference as does America the Nation and we can act on this to make a better world and it is our duty to do so.
I left the theatre proud of Tarantino and an even bigger fan of him and Brad Pitt. There is hope yet for an America that could stand up to the Nazis and win a WWII – we do not have to be politically correct assholes currying favor with the enemy like our fearful phoney affirmative action leader Barack Hussein Obama II and his gang of idiots.
