Tarantino delivers a World War Two saga with a pulp dynamic. Brad Pitt takes the reigns as Lt. Aldo Raine, in charge of the "Basterds" a group of Jews sent behind enemy lines to kill nazis. Tarantino paints his cinematic brush and offers the audience a landscape of film references. 'Inglourious Basterds' contains the trademark Tarantino glamour, violence and razor sharp dialogue we've come to expect from the master of B-Movies and independent cinema.

Christopher Waltz is excellent as the jew-hunting, multilingual nazi Col. Hans Landa, the ensemble cast is amazing just like Pulp Fiction, Tim Schweiger plays the psychotic, nazi killer Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz and Mike Myers has a brief moment as an English intelligence briefing officer. There are also plenty of gorgeous blondes to indulge Tarantino's foot fetish. The leading ladies are Melanie Laurent who plays a famous actress/spy as well as the Jewish girl living life as a Parisian cinema owner played by Diane Kruger.

Tarantino sets the place on fire.
