If the title weren’t already taken, it’d be tempting to think of Quentin Tarantino’s new movie - indeed, his entire career - as “Infinite Jest.’’ Inside the fevered junk-pop particle accelerator that is this director’s brain, moments of power and banality, meaning and absurdity, all collide into each other, creating movie mash-ups as brilliant as they are pointless. You take a Tarantino film seriously at your risk, which is why “Inglourious Basterds’’ is his greatest risk yet: a rollicking action-comedy about - wait for it - the Holocaust.

Awesome Movie

Saw this movie last night. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Yeah...it's a little violent, as most Tarantino's movies tend to be. The acting is really, really good. Brad Pitt is hysterical. Christoph Waltz did an amazing job. Some of the critics give it a hard time for taking creative license with history, but that's not relevant. It's not a documentary. I would definitely recommend this picture. It's not pulp fiction, but is just as entertaining. Everyone was walking out of the theater knowing they had seen a really twisted and very well done movie. I am certain that a couple of these actors will get consideration during Oscar time.
