So I watched Inglourious Basterds again today...'s a true modern masterpiece, and definitely one of the best films of 2009. I just want to post some pics of those who made this film so great.

Quentin Tarantino, my favourite director of all time. No matter what anyone else says, he's a true genius and an asset to the film industry today. The only film I haven't seen of his is Kill Bill: Vol. 2, and it looks like I'll have to sooner or later considering his next will be Kill Bill: Vol. 3 in 2014. However, Basterds is my favourite of his work.

The cast: amazing, I'll explain in a little more detail below...

Brad Pitt continues his run with great movies as Aldo "The Apache" Raine, head of the Basterds. After this and Burn After Reading, I'm starting to think that Brad is more suited to playing a comedic character.

Up until now I had never heard of Melanie Laurent, but she was great as Shosanna Dreyfus/Emanuelle Mimieux in this. And she was so beautiful. I hope she gets more English film offers.

Christoph Waltz will win that Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. He is so great as Hans Landa 'The Jew Hunter', it hurts. And what should his acceptance speech starts with? "Well that's a BINGO!"

A poster featuring Diane Kruger's character Bridget von Hammersmark. That dress she wears in the final chapter is really amazing. Cast and all. And of course, Kruger is not such a bad dresser herself.

My god, I love this movie. If you haven't seen it, then get your mittens on it, because it's AMAZING!
