Inglourious Basterds

The FLGs rented Inglourious Basterds over the weekend. FLG thought that the dialogue was well-written and the acting by Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger, and especially Christoph Waltz was fantastic, but it was missing something. Something, FLG doesn't quite know what, that made it unsuccessful for him.

I thought that the opening scene with Christoph Waltz is easily one of the top 10 scenes in modern film. It was great. The film seemed to drift a bit at the end. Perhaps it is the alternate history that gets you. I know it did me.

I had a similar reaction.

Without Christoph Waltz's scenery-crunching, what's left? (OK, fifteen seconds of Brad Pitt pretending to be Italian, and the brilliant bit of the death sentence projected on the captive audience at the end.) Everything else is dreck, or worse.
