'Inglorious Basterds' Review
Killing Nazis or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Stopped the War

Rating: ★★★★½

'Inglorious Basterds' is an action-drama written and directed by Quentin Tarantino set in Nazi-occupied France during World War II. The film boasts incredibly talented cast featuring Brad Pitt, Christoph Waltz and Eli Roth, as well as brilliant writing from Tarantino.
The movie was broken up into five, distinct chapters, favourite being Chapter 1.
The only problem with the film is Chapter 4. It's slow pacing halted the steady-paced film and I felt it overstayed its welcome but it was an important part that needed to be included in the story. The chapter paved the way for the awesome Chapter 5, and honestly, I can't think of any part to cut out.
The way Tarantino built tension and atmosphere throughout the film using cinematography, writing, score, sound effects and performances was genius.
Tarantino took full advantage of not making itself based on true events, playing with history in great ways and creating a world history that I wish was real.
I can't wait to watch Quentin Tarantino's other nine films.
