But, but, it has Christian Bale looking pretty in it! D:

I agree about Inglorious Basterds. The film should have been called 'Two Women Hate the Nazis' instead. The Basterds not only did fuck all during the film, they were barely even in it! Tarantino's problem is that he always uses 10 words when 2 would suffice. So instead of a kickass film about the Basterds raising hell against the Nazis, we get to watch some women complain instead. I mean, did we really need the subplot of the cinema owner dating her projectionist? No, it was pointless and padded out the film.

One more thing...God damn CHANGING THE COURSE OF HISTORY. I mean seriously, what the hell was the point of killing Hitler? It didn't add anything to the movie, and quite frankly made the ending stupid.

/rant

On the plus side, featured my favourite drinking game ever and had Brad Pitt's amazing Italian accent Very Happy

I actually really enjoyed the fact that they killed Hitler. How many times have you seen a movie with an historical figure in it, and when it seems they'll be killed they get away because they did more in real life? In I.B. for the whole movie I was thinking "Okay, they're trying to kill Hitler, but he'll get away..." I must say I was pleasently surprised when he got killed. It wasn't changing history, it was just presenting a different version of it, and killing Hilter helped to set it apart from nearly every other WWII kill hitler movie (Not sure how many there really are, but there must be at least one.)

The projectionist thing? That was just part of the story I guess. It was no more or less pointless than the bar game they were playing.

Sorry if it seems like I'm trying to pick apart your comment, I just like the dialog in Tarantino movies so... yeah.

Movie Letdowns? Hmm...
Four words:

Lady in The Water.

Actually I dunno if it can be called a letdown. I knew it would be terrible from the start. Damn family movie nights :/

The movie was about cinema itself being used as a weapon against the Nazis. The movie is about killing Nazis, obviously, but using the film to actually burn down the theater and kill Hitler (within the movie) was actually a brilliant bit of symbolism, and what the movie was really about. The idea that Brad Pitt and the rest of the Bastards would be the stars was the result of an admittedly underhanded marketing campaign.

So I've heard. Same goes for the Final Fantasy one and the Resident Evil ones.

Has anyone else seen Spy Kids? I remember loving the first one when I was little, and being incredibly, incredibly disappointed when the 2nd and *shudders* the 3rd came out.

What about Fantasia 2000? I liked that (Although the celebrity cameos wore a little thin...)

I liked the Lion King 2...and it has one of my favourite villain songs. Also, NUKA!

The rest of Disney sequels, not so good =/

I repeat, only worthy sequel is Toy Story 2, which was quite probably better than the first.
I hope 3 can live up to it.
