I thought Inglourious Basterds
was much stronger than Django
. DiCaprio and Samuel L Jackson were fantastic. Foxx and Waltz were just OK for me in this one.
The proto-Klan with the underwhelming bag disguises were pretty funny, but the bumbling Klan thing reminded me too much of O Brother Where Art Thou
. I didn't find many of the action sequences that engaging. I thought the running length of the movie was way too long. There just wasn't enough going on in this film for it to fill 2 hours and 45 minutes. The ending dragged like Return of the King
. Bad call throwing yourself on camera Quentin, with your preposterous Aussie accent, was definitely ready for the movie to end at that point.
