Am I the only one who thinks that the opening interrogation scene everybody gushes about is stolen from The Good the Bad and the Ugly?  First scene with Angel Eyes.  Coming into a mans home, threatening his family, etc.  The way its filmed is also very, very similar.   
Ive lied to men who wear belts. Ive lied to men who wear suspenders. But Id never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.

Everything in this film is stolen from some other film. It is just stolen very well.

A good artist knows how to do just that.

Isn't there some Morricone playing over that scene too?

Anyway, I learned today that the German version of Inglourious Basterds runs slightly longer than the other ones, apparently Tarantino decided to insert some additional 50 seconds of footage in Bar scene. I believe these scenes can be found as deleted scenes on the DVDs but it seems that Tarantino wanted them to be part of the film for us.

Just came across this from an entirely different direction, from a Jewish blog:

Interesting on the reaction.  I wish there was a podcast of the panel discussion afterwards but I can't find any.

Hmm. From the sounds of it I would not like what those guys are saying. Do they not forget that on Passover we also commemorate the Egyptians who died, because even though they supposedly enslaved and oppressed the Israelites, they were still human beings and still God's children? The Bible is pretty clear on murder for revenge's sake.

The difference there is God killed all the Egyptians as an act of judgment, not the Jews. "Vengeance is mine, says the LORD" and all that jazz. ;)

Sorry for this.

Somebody posted recently praising Christoph Waltz.  Said to watch him during the scene at the theatre talking about Bridget von Hammersmark's broken leg.

I'm watching the film again, and I can't find the post to know what I should be looking for.  Search function not helping.
