Quick question about the Kenny analysis (which was very cool, BTW, thanks for that link!).
He says that the fourth chapter (the one in the village pub) has the very long scene in the pub, interrupted by only one flashback--I can't recall that.
Don't have anything to add right now except hearty agreement with the positive comments above on the standout actors. This was a really fun movie. The only thing that bothered me some was that everyone seemed completely unmoved by the deaths or presumed deaths of their comrades, particularly fellow Basterds. After all they had been fighting together for a long time, it seemed. I know they were all larger than life fantasy characters and maybe the stoicism was as overblown as the rest of their traits.
I too wanted to see more of the Basterds, particularly how they evolved from the group in the recruitment scene to the unstoppable terrifying force they were in the next scenes. I'm also hoping for an extended director's cut.
If there weren't so many other movies I want to see right now, I would totally go see this again.
