Inglourious Basterds - Glorious?

Sitting on the train yesterday, I overheard a couple talking about the new Quentin Tarantino film "Inglourious Basterds". They obviously liked it and spent the entire ride to Central replaying clips with excitement, including the gory, bloody parts that can make someone squeamish. The guy had even seen it two times at the cinema, which in my mind means a lot for a movie, so I thought - after seeing it myself and loving it - that it deserves a little shout-out.

The short story, as put by, is: "In 'Inglorious Bastards,' a band of U.S. soldiers facing death by firing squad for their misdeeds are given a chance to redeem themselves by heading into the perilous no-man's lands of Nazi-occupied France on a suicide mission for the Allies."

Users on the Internet Movie Database gave the movie a rating of 8.7/10 from 44,671 votes!

Rotten Tomatoes gives the film an 88% on the Tomatometer and describes it as "...a classic Tarantino genre-blending thrill ride. Inglourious Basterds is violent, unrestrained, and thoroughly entertaining."

Not convincing enough? Have a look at the trailer:

What do you think Furnished Property tenants? If you've seen it, did you like it? And if not, are you going to go to the cinema now?!
