So you deny that logic issues messed up the movie for you?

And I wouldn't say glaring. I never thought of the security issues. But then again I never think about things like that. I'm a really stupid moviegoer. I never figure out twists or see plot holes.

Logic issues... was one of them... the other was the strong first two chapters... they were soooo good, and I felt the rest of the movie was just a let down... I wanted to see the Basterds in action...

How was the final scene not the Basterds at their peak?

The movie star gets found out... Pitt is captured... and the other guys, for no real reason, decide to kill Hitler with their guns, even though the bombs would have done the deal?   

spectacular timing too Eli Roth... glad to see he somehow knew to get out of the theater before the doors were locked!

I wanted to see the Basterds earning their rep.... scalping Nazis, etc..... we saw the beginning, and the end....

Did I miss the scene where they machine guns the jeep through the windshield?

Yeah...it's there - VERY briefly at about the 2/3 mark as a flashback kinda thing.

Yep, part of Stiglitz's little bio flashback.

Plot holes become obvious and irritating when the movie is shit.
When it is awesome, we don't care.
When it is awesome, and is well aware of its plot holes and the like and still DOES NOT CARE because it is so awesome, we just have to applaud.

Basterds fits into the third category.

It's so funny that we do this, but I'm right there with ya!

(and I did applaud! :) the only time in two years in the cimena! )

Oh no! You're not one of those people are you haha? Well only twice maybe you can be forgiven, but seriously, if you aren't watching a play where the actors can hear the applause it does seem silly.

I gave a big internal applause-double fist pump-triple chair spin combo.

I am SOOOO not that guy.  I'm pretty well known for my stinginess in the clapping arena - so this was kinda a big deal!

An addendum to this rule: applause IS permitted if you are seeing the movie at a film festival and one or more of the cast and/or crew members are present.
