I really wasn't struck by Waltz. Good, but nothing special. Certainly not on the level Laurent is. Roth is serviceable.
I loved the music, which never detracted. The music over the closing credits was so great. I sat there wondering if there's a brass band arrangement available.
I thought the presence of Sam Jackson was totally, totally unnecessary. Of course, so was the narration in parts.
I wonder how much of a reference having Shosanna's partner named Marcel is to Marcel Camus? Or maybe that was just me.
It seemed so obvious that Tarantino was pulling stuff from everywhere, and it shouldn't've worked, but I thought it totally did. Like the presence of the labels pointing at the two other third reich members we hadn't been at that stage, which were totally incongruous, but I totally loved them.
The make up sequence is awesome. The face being projected onto the smoke, is, quite possibly, my single favourite moment of the film.
