Okay, so I finally finished watching Inglourious Basterds last night. And on the “Big TV” out in the Common Room at that. Of course, I had to wait till the Caregiver and her boyfriend went to the master bedroom for the night, but at least I didn’t have to watch it on my smaller – if more advanced – TV. Plus, I was on the far more comfortable recliner sofa, so….
Because it was already rather late – I think It was 9:45 PM when I finally plopped onto the sofa and hit PLAY on the Blu-ray player remote – I only watched the last two chapters of Inglourious Basterds – Operation Kino and Revenge of the Giant Face. I’d seen the film before – in one of my ex-girlfriends’ apartment a bit over 10 years ago – so I remembered that Quentin Tarantino’s revenge fantasy/dark humor/war film is also an alternative historical movie. I especially remembered the last scenes, but I had forgotten most of Operation Kino because I was paying more attention to my then-girlfriend than the movie.
I’m a bit tired and don’t feel like writing a long post, so I am not even going to give you a full review of the movie. I’ll do that at some point in the future, just not now. I will say this: I liked the casting – there’s a fine international cast, including Brad Pitt, B.J. Novak, Mélanie Laurent, Cristoph Waltz, Rod Taylor, Mike Myers (yes, that Mike Myers), Michael Fassbender, Diane Kruger, Jacky Ido, and Daniel Brühl – and the dark humor. I was taken aback by some of the violence in Inglourious Basterds, but I have only seen three of Tarantino’s movies (Inglourious Basterds, Death Proof, and Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood), so it’s not like I am a connoisseur of his filmography.
Anyway, I don’t have much else to report, and I should get off my rear end and take a shower and change into fresh street clothes. So, Dear Reader, I’m signing off. Until next time, stay safe, stay healthy, and I’ll catch you on the sunny side of things.
