Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds is the big daddy of all Nazi movies. Mind you, this is not my opinion but a decree issue by Basterds actor Brad Pitt. According to Brad, Basterds is the best WWII movie of all time.
In a recent interview with German magazine Stern, Brad is all praises for his new movie.
The second World War could still deliver more stories and films, but I believe that Quentin [Tarantino, director] put a cover on that pot. With Basterds, everything than can be said to this genre has been said. The film destroys every symbol. The work is done, end of story.
Though I’m not that much impressed by Basterds, I totally support Brad’s views because it’s the duty of every actor to defend and respect his movies, no matter how lame the movies are. However, When he was asked about Tom Cruise’s recent film, Valkyrie, about a real plot to kill Hitler, Brad demonstrated a show of utter disrespect and said, “It was a ridiculous movie.”
That’s it. Now let’s wait and see how Tommy babe defends his Valkyrie.
