I cried, I laughed, I was on the edge of my seat...
Bratt Pitt was a bit too much of a sling blade character, but had lots
of great one-liners (we in the business of Nazi killing, and business
is a booming). Anyone know what's up with the slit-throat-scar? To make him more "bad-ass"?
The supporting cast stole the show (and likely had more screen time
than Brad, but he's the "star"), with Melanie Laurent (Shosanna
Dreyfus), what am amazing performance and beautiful actress. Christoph
Waltz, (Col. Hans Landa), he just might be a Nazi in real-life, very
Oh, let's not forget, Til Schweiger (Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz), the Nazi
turned brutal Nazi killer. Waiting for him to lose it in the pub was
nerve-wrecking. Btw, meeting at the pub, great scene. Won't spoil it
for those who haven't seen, but my legs trembled with anxiety waiting
for "something" to happen.
Eli Roth (Sgt. Donny Donowitz) was pretty awesome indeed (baseball bat), you know he used to be one Howard Stern's guys? Who cast BJ Novak? He made me feel a bit uncomfortable, too clean, and as if I'm watching The Office, in a bad way.
Great cameo by Mike Myers, the entire audience was laughing
hysterically the moment he appeared on the screen. Surprising voice
cameos by Samuel L Jackson (narrator) and Harvey Keitel (the general Landa makes deal with). And David Bowie's 'Cat People' made the theater scene (climax) superb... putting out fire with gasoline...
I would have done some things differently, but I'm not Terantino (writer/director) or Weinstein ($). With all that said, Quentin feel free to add this to your list of cult
(and mainstrean) classics, just no prequels or sequels please. ;)
