I really loved the creativity and sound effects of the opening animation towards the Red Apple Logo and of course the logo itself along with the art style for the David Bowie tribute including the colours for the lettering, The flow and the animation of the cigarette smoke perfectly captured both the physics and vibe of having a good ole smoke not that I smoke but that’s the impression I got from it.

The way you repurposed the opening scene of the theatrical cut as a black and white flashback was an effective use of the non liner narrative and a good way to telegraph to the audience the reason for Shosanna’s fear and anxiety of Hans Landa as it also makes that scene of her brief emotional break down all the more effective emotionally since the repurposed opening and her emotional state after Hans departure happen in a much shorter space of time.

Speaking of timing the use of music throughout the edit was timed nicely with the start of certain scenes and the themes of the varying music choices you used felt thematically appropriate to the scenes that you included them in with a personal favourite of mine being the use of David Bowie’s Changes as Raine…hmm how do I put this…artistically arranges Landa’s face to complete his masterpiece as it gave the moment more iconography and a dark sense of humour.

The fast perspective switching between some of the scenes was an improvement over the theatrical cut such as the switching between the tussle of Shosanna and Zoeller and the scenes outside the projection booth as each builded towards Shosanna’s vengeance from the grave upon the Nazis.

Additionally I really liked the use of text used throughout the film which was not only close to that of Tarantino’s style but the structural placement of each of the narrative acts text serves and could potentially serve as a good indicator for First Time Faneditors of how to do a Five Act Structure or at the very least it could provide a hint to them as to how each acts are expected to be structured within a Fanedit’s five basic structures that eventually tie the whole thing together in a nice neat package.

Just finished watching this edit, and I have to say it's pretty damn good.
It does a brilliant job of shortening the movie without feeling like anything's missing, and the music choices are amazing especially in the finale, which is a two minute masterpiece. While I'm not the biggest fan of the original, I found this to be a very enjoyable hour.
My only real complaint is that I watched this with my wife who'd never seen the original, and she was pretty confused by the swastika branding. She didn't really get what had happened even at the end, so that could be clearer. I also thought that the original intro scene of Hans killing the Jews under the floorboards was great, and it's a shame that it was cut, but I understand why it was cut, so I don't think it's at all necessary for it to be in the edit.
(This edit has been updated and my review score has been adjusted to address that)

If you like Inglorious Basterds, you should love this edit. Definitely a recommend.

Cleverly trimmed of about and hour and a half down to one hour this still manages to be easy to follow and retain most of the hightlights of the original. The new music cues are great and always surprising in how well they fit into the action. We need more ArtisDead edits please!

Very interesting project. This is my first edit viewed in The 'Tarantino Tales' series. And I enjoyed it tremendously.
I think the idea here is not to make a better movie than the original. So, the whole concept of asking how it compares to the original is irrelevant. Instead, this is about the fun in experimentation, creativity.
It's a neat and tidy showcase of the great filmmaking of Tarantino in a compact presentation sculptured by a firm editorial work.

I sure be checking other edits in this project.

For a fanedit that takes a 2 and a half hour film and turns it into a 1 hour episode, it's amazing how the edit manages to portray a coherent story.

Any sharp eared viewers will instantly notice the use of 80s songs (primarily a good bit of Bowie) replacing the bulk of the soundtrack which, aside from some select scenes, makes the edit a fun experience, and even enhances a few of the fan favourite moments ("psycho killer" playing during the bear jew scene is a personal favourite).

Diehard fans of the original film like myself will however notice the diminished presence of one of the greatest villains ever created: Hans Landa. Although still included, his scenes have been either edited or removed altogether, which sadly gives him a lesser presence than his theatrical counterpart, however, adds an interesting new perspective of the edit which now thrusts the general nazi army/ideology into the antagonist role.

This episode of tarantino tales is certaintly a fun watch and aside from a couple distracting audio decisions is a very tightly edited video that serves as a fresh perspective for those familiar with the film, and a worthy enough affair for those hoping to experience it for the first time.
