Excited after reading reviews...left VERY disappointed
I was so disappointed by this Tarantino film. He is one of my favorite film makers / writers, but I must say his films are so on and off. After seeing this film I've seriously began to consider boycotting any future films he releases. I feel as though the high rating on this film reflects the idiocy of the North American demographic. I couldn't believe that people would laugh at some of the "funny" moments of this film...totally uncalled for moments that were not funny at all. I considered leaving the film about 20 minutes into it, but thought perhaps it may get better....but no, that was not the case.
I gave it a 2 / 5 only because I liked the end and Tarantino's vision of how he would have liked the war to end. Brad Pitt was terrible, and I can't believe he thought this was the greatest role of his acting career...he should be ashamed of himself.
Negative points such as I was strive to see how Landa should be motivated to change sides and give himself up in the way he does. Also some of the dialogues in my opinion go on for far too long, making me waiting for the action to get going again. This is not a criticism of all the dialogue - much of it is really good, but the flow of the movie as a whole is disrupted.
There are other things which could be said about how Tarantino builds up the world in the film, and how things are not logical within it, but I won't go into details here.
The movie had so many pointless moments, offensive and just plain uneducated.... This film was terrible.
Rating: 2 / 5
