Hi guys, I just watched Inglourious Basterds and I really enjoyed it.
The dialogues and some of the scenes were just perfect, BUT!!! I think there are some faults in the plot.
Why did Hanse Landa (Cristopher Waltz) Killed Bridget Von Hammersmark (Diane Kuger) if he was going to surrender?
Ok, you can argue that he changed his mind later he captured Brad Pitt but the film never had the nuance of that(Also when he killed her, he genuinely looked like he felt betrayed and wanted to kill the traiter for his country) and it all suddenly seemed very rushed to get the what Tirantino at the time thought a neat conclusion of the film but it didn't.
It just looked like he didn't want to give a straight ending to the film and give a twist at the end which didn't really worked for me(Because I think this movie was really different from what Tirantino did in the past so I expected something more but kind of dissapointed that it was one of those cliche Tiratino ending) and I think that's why the academy denied him this time as well...
I think the film started so masterfully and lives the height of quality he created until this part that even though it was an OK ending, it seemed quite a let down for me compare to what he brought up till the last part of the film.
