An anachronistic tribute to David Bowie set to a WWII sardonic comedy? Does this work? Not really.

In many ways, this is my least favorite of the Tarantino Tales that I have watched. I think it's overly ambitious and a couple of the songs are too loud and one just doesn't work at all.

I have to admit that the idea is very much what fanediting is all about for me. Stretching boundaries. Just to see if you can.
I would be curious to see what other ideas ArtisDead might have up his sleeve considering this was the least safe of the tales so far.

I agree with the others that the songs Psycho Killer and Pigs were perfectly placed. I give a perfect score for those alone.

Let me preface this review by stating Basterds is a perfect movie IMO so cutting anything is doing the overall picture an injustice... BUT with that said I enjoyed this within the scope and narrative of what the entire group was attempting to achieve with this project. I felt it connected the dots perfectly to tell YOUR story - some of it felt slightly rushed but taking in down to 60 minutes is quite the undertaking with this one and was required for adequate pacing.

Music as noted by some others - I'm in agreeance that Psycho Killer (my favorite addition) and Pigs were the two standouts even though you were paying homage to Bowie throughout the edit. I felt some of the music was too overpowering and hurt one specific overall scene for me where others have mentioned two - example of this was the music playing over half the dialogue of the Fassbender/Myers scene making it difficult to hear the conversation before it almost awkwardly cut out - would soften that music cue or remove it all together from that scene.

This was another "episode" that felt like a TV episode with the opening credits - I also enjoyed the Act 1-4 Title cards - The editing was fantastic and I have no constructive criticism as it was cut and flowed telling the story you set out to tell seamlessly removing what you felt was not required....

Bowie/Cobain RIP cards were a nice addition

Great job and another fantastic episode ArtisDead... Another entry that I highly recommend.

I know why it was removed but I selfishly did miss the "That's a BINGO" line lol

Onto Episode 8!!!

This one is good but not as good as other ones I watch. Too much music from someone I didn't like too much but the Psycho song was very funny and so was the naxis getting wasted to pigs song so I still give perfect score. Very funny!

This seems to be the most popular of the Tarantino Tales edits. It is probably the most transformative but I wouldn't say it's the best. It's a very bold take on an almost perfect movie.

I definitely liked the concept of adding the songs as a tribute to Bowie. I also enjoyed reading the editors description of why certain songs were placed in certain places.

However, not all of the songs worked for me. Two, as others have mentioned were too loud in a couple of places. I did love the Cat People song and Changes at the end...and like almost everyone else I felt that the placements of Psycho Killer and Pigs by The Floyd were perfect and carried their scenes well.

The edit is ambitious enough to get an almost perfect score but this won't be a replacement of the original movie for my house.

Excellent work! I did truly enjoy it.

I've been watching the Tarantino Tales in order, but I skipped ahead a bit to watch this one. One of the main things this edit does is update the soundtrack, which was excellent. I liked that it focused more on Raine and the group a bit more. It then kind of starts rushing things with Shosanna. I can understand this because the stories are intertwined and you need to explain that a bit. You're have to explain Landa's backstory quickly, Raine's group and motivations, who and why a girl and a man are burning down their theater, and then pack it into an hour. My suggestion is to possibly lose Hicox's briefing scene with Mike Meyers, yet keep the bar in some form to explain the death of some of the Basterds like Stiglitz. Speaking of the briefing and bar scenes, those were two instances I felt the audio/soundtrack to be a bit heavy handed. It overshadows words that are being spoken and doesn't mesh well in those moments. When the music is extended into the scene you almost want to be able to turn the volume down on it because a conversation is starting. The edits made flowed really well and never felt it jumped out of place. Overall I really had fun with this. It is an excellent job and effort by ArtisDead and I'd like to say thanks for making it. This is a super enjoyable way to watch this film.
