Inglourious Basterds | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Jennifer K. Stuller Bitch Media It wasn't satisfying... Perhaps I'll change my mind. Perhaps I won't. But today I'll simply say that I thought it was inglorious indeed. Dec 22, 2020 Full Review Inglourious Basterds | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Matthew Rozsa Salon.com When Tarantino sent this message to moviegoers in 2009, it's unlikely that he imagined how relevant it would be in 2019. Rated: 4/4 May 19, 2019 Full Review Inglourious Basterds | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Ed Koch The Atlantic The performance of Christoph Waltz, playing the Nazi Gestapo figure Col. Hans Landa, is the highlight of the film. His ability to convey courtliness and sympathy and then go to commit the cruelest of horrors is simply superb. Jan 17, 2018 Full Review Inglourious Basterds | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Michael Leader Den of Geek It is his first film where the bad, underwhelming points outweigh the good – and his first that cannot be recommended easily. Rated: 3/5 May 7, 2024 Full Review Inglourious Basterds | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Ezequiel Obregón EscribiendoCine The quotes and tributes to other films are still present, but here they acquire a new value, especially towards the end, where the cinema becomes a space for revenge... [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 8/10 Mar 11, 2024 Full Review Inglourious Basterds | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Paul Kanieski KSQD Community Radio Inglourious Basterds shows the power of film as both a wartime weapon and an elemental force – dangerous as propaganda, incendiary when ignited.
