Brights stole my thunder.

Basterds sucks. Tucci Bones is way better.

Seriously though, Basterds is the most interesting film I've seen from '09 so far. Layered, intense and a blast to watch.

We didn't watch the same film. The one I saw had Pitt, an ugly French chick, & was directed by that Tarantino guy. amirite?

I'm no fanboy. I like all of his films, but I wasn't all that excited about them until Basterds came along and he appeared to have actually started wanting to communicate ideas and themes rather than pop culture fetishism.

How do you mean? Basterds is pretty much his first non-vampiric film. It's Godard-esque.

His camera was alive this time, so I forgive him all the borrowing.

I guess The Lovely Bones number one fake out was more amusing to myself. God, I'm hilarious.
Hopefully it was no secret upon seeing the entry that it is not my favorite film of the year. Basterds is. & I think may be the only film this year I'd give a solid 10, or 9.5 at the very least. No film has held up this year the way it has & it just keeps getting better. I just want to jump up & let out a manly growl thinking about it.

Never thought I'd see the day The Enemy (yeah, Pitt) was in a film placed as my number one of the year.

P.S. Pitt was good. French chick was beautiful. Tarantino is the man.

That whole quoted post is a hefty lie.

Brightside: Godard steals from other filmmakers, clearly. Tarantino steals from other filmmakers, clearly. Vasco doesn't mind the stealing in this film because he liked the camerawork. End.

Out of the 100+ people that have gotten back to me on the RT Consensus Thread, the amount that have Basterds on it is shocking. Between 60-70% last time I checked. Might be even higher now.

The film’s questionable release status means I’m probably also going to have this on my 2010 list. I’m fairly certain it will be number one. There are ideas and themes here that have played a major part in so many of Herzog’s greatest works, including his fascinations with mental illness and the alienated individual in America. When it was over, I realized something: it may eventually be remembered as one of his better films, but that will take a while. If it had been made in the seventies with Kinski or Bruno S as Brad, Bruno Ganz in Dafoe’s role and Eva Mattes as Ingrid, it may have been considered his masterpiece, and I think it should still be in that discussion. Hopefully it will get a national release soon, so that discussion can begin.

It's the main banner for a reason. It's the Coen's best film to date and my third favorite of the decade. It also usually feels like a filmed version of my life. Take that as you will.

For some reason, this film still hasn't gotten a US release, and, in all likelihood, it never will. OK, so it's not "some reason," there's actually a pretty good reason for that. It’s a four hour Japanese love story/black comedy soaked in perversion and religion whose best scene (and my pick for scene of the year) is the female lead holding the male lead down as she screams Corinthians 1 into his face while Beethoven’s seventh plays in the background. Maybe it wasn’t meant for America, but somebody should try.

Inglourious Basterds is formally excellent. The tavern scene is well-paced. Scenes with the Basterds are too Tarantino.

I could talk about A Serious Man all week, I could talk about how Stuhlbarg deserved an Oscar now, I could talk about how it's probably the bleakest Coen film, which is saying something. I could talk about how quotable the film is, I could talk about how perfect the last shot is, how awesome the score is, ahhhhhh.

I think the greater point is this:

Kieslowski is dead. There is no hope for the world.

Despair.
