Finally saw this film. Absolutely entertaining, love the dialogue, a Nazi film couldn’t be more enjoyable, blah-blah-blah, I’ll bore you with my praises. Didn’t realize how much I missed Tarantino’s crazies until I saw this.
Didn’t care much for Brad Pitt (I enjoyed Casey Affleck’s performance more in The Assassination of Jesse James – and Pitt here is basically playing James again it seems, accent and dirty clothes and all), but good grief Christoph Waltz!
His performance is divine. I want to see more of this actor. Just so I can stop saying, “He’s my favorite Nazi”.

Yay! Christoph Waltz is lab. So sinister! Lalo na yung unang scene nya with matching turo turo sa floor. Added you to my blog roll. :-)
Yay thanks Glensky! I’ll add you din. Natawa ako sa “turo turo sa floor” :D
Tumatak sa utak ko yun ‘Au revoir, Shosanna!!!’ Waltz and his mega smoking pipe is brilliant <3
I also liked the French farmer, you could see the voices in his head going 'fuckfuckfuck he's onto us.' Really sad eyes, too!
Oh I reallllly loved that French farmer’s performance. :D And <3 the mega-smoking pipe a la Sherlock Holmes hahaha. :D
Hi Eliza! :)
I can certainly list this movie as one of my all-time faves, having a penchant for war-inspired movies. I was either giggling or shaking the whole time I was watching it. Christoph Waltz is sheer brilliance (there, I said it. Haha! *crush ko na ata*) … definite Oscar na ‘to… hopefully he’ll have a great Hollywood career ahead. :)
I saw this Letterman interview with Waltz, and he was like, “I belong to a theater family, and I grew up in Vienna. Yes, ‘theater family’ and ‘Vienna’ is too much, even for me.” I loff him. :]
