Really? I thought it was all great, especially from Cotillard.
Bale embarrassed himself, but I guess he should be used to that by now.

I was surprisingly let down by this the first time. After a rewatch, I realized I'm clinically insane for my first reaction.

Bale didn't do anything embarassing.

Not exactly noteworthy, but still.

Cotillard and Stephen Graham were bestest.

I did. For me, Kieslowski always brings to light important issues of one's own suffering, and this, much like his other work, was no different. I thought it was both a harrowing profile on youth and its ability to corrupt an unloved mind, and the reevaluation of human worth.

Am I going to walk around and rip your fucking lights down, in the middle of a scene? Then why the fuck are you walking right through? Ah-da-da-dah, like this in the background. What the fuck is it with you? What don't you fucking understand? You got any fucking idea about, hey, it's fucking distracting having somebody walking up behind Bryce in the middle of the fucking scene? Give me a fucking answer! What don't you get about it?

Possibly Tarantino's finest film. Allow me to direct your attention to a much better writer than I:
Spinal from Match-Cut wrote:Inglourious Basterds is not only probably Tarantino's best film to date -- at this point in time, I'd say it is -- but more importantly it is a film that I never would have thought him capable of creating. Though certain stylistic flourishes remain, Tarantino drops a few of his crutches (namely the mixtape soundtrack and the barrage of pop culture fetishism) and tackles his subject matter with something his work, even the good stuff, has rarely possessed in the past -- a desire to communicate an important idea.

The film melds Tarantino's mastery of surface pleasures with a newfound commitment to layered, sophisticated thematics and the result is an exhilarating film that is not only a rewrite of history, but in some ways an actual argument in support of historical inaccuracy. Tarantino argues that we have had enough films in which we see the repeated images of strong, powerful Nazis hounding terrified Jews and executing them mercilessly. Those films have their place in telling a history, but what are the consequences of having those images barrage us every year around Oscar season?

Like the film's Nazi propagandists who realize that the cinema can be used to rally a nation and inspire pride, Tarantino audaciously suggests that a film with a band of ruthless Jewish spies who put terror into the hearts of their enemies might have real life value in the way it alters our perceptions. Instead of using cinema to kill the Jews over and over and over, why not use it to burn the idea of Nazism in effigy? Only Tarantino would be so cocky as to use the final line of his film to insinuate that he knows that the film he has created is fantastic. But I have to say that I agree with his assessment.

Inglourious Basterds is a film that is exciting not only because it is perhaps the pinnacle of Tarantino's cinema. It is exciting because it suggests that Tarantino may have reached a new stage in his career. It took him 15 years to live up to the enormous hype of Pulp Fiction. Let's hope it takes far less time for him to match this one.

Their last two were abysmal, although I just read a couple reviews granting as much and saying that it was better.

Let's kill Germans instead. Oh, wait, Nazis. Yes. Call them Nazis and they cease to be humans.
