Inglourious Basterds ★★★★★

I have watched this film at least a hundred times and each time I watch it, I love it even more!
Quentin Tarantino yet again creates a masterpiece of blood, action and revenge that keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. With a well written storyline and a classy acting cast, including such names as Brad Pitt, Christoph Waltz, Diane Kruger and Michael Fassbender the film boasts attributes that all great films have.

If any Director knows about the power of language, it is Tarantino. The opening scene is my all time favourite scene, the tension that is built just through a conversation is substantial.
Christoph Waltz gives the performance of his career as Nazi Colonel Hans Landa, a villain that you cant help but love thanks to the mix of sinister terror and psychotic humour his character adds to a triumphant experimental story line.
Like all Tarantino films it contains an underlying humour that adds a subtle comedic side to what is a serious time in world history. Tarantino will look back at this film as a highlight of his already expansive directing career, this film is my favourite film of all time and rightly so.
