This fan-edit(Tarantino Tales: Episode 7 - Inglourious Basterds) of inglorious bastards is a very good condensed version of the film in question.
This condensed fan-edit version concentrates on the main story & main characters. I was a little worried that necessary content (ie: characters & scenarios) would be cut to fit the shorter time frame, but rest assured that is not the case.
Basically a lot of filler content & unneccesary characters where cut, yet Tarantino Tales: Episode 7 - Inglourious Basterds maintained & preserved the main buildup, points & characters of the movie that needed to be communicated to the movie going audience.
All of the classic scene's are here with a lot of good moments. Tarantino Tales: Episode 7 - Inglourious Basterds also has music that is different from the original film. Having an ear for good taste in music is a must when viewing this fan-edit. This film is not disappointing at all. All in all good choice of music & placement of music for this fan-edit.
I recommend Tarantino Tales: Episode 7 - Inglourious Basterds for people that do not feel like sitting through a long movie yet are curious to know the movie in question. Or for people who have already seen the movie yet want the main movie without the filler embellishments or silly scenario's
Everything is top-notch with Tarantino Tales: Episode 7 - Inglourious Basterds,
as you won't be disappointed.
A Fantastic & tasteful job with Tarantino Tales: Episode 7 - Inglourious Basterds.
This is such a superb edit of Tarantino's best film.
The editing for the visuals is great and allows the viewer to really not miss a beat with the story despite a lot of the original being cut.
The music for me though is what sets this edit apart - I was very skeptical going into this as it is one of my favourite films but i thoroughly enjoyed every single second of it and really cannot fault it and the music choices were just perfect for each scene.
Bravo ArtisDead, you really have excelled expectations here! I am looking forward to seeing more of your work in the future.
Wow! This was a really fantastic edit. Being a fan of the original film, I have to say I think I actually prefer this version instead. ArtisDead has pulled off an amazing job retaining the core narrative without losing anything important. However, I do miss the opening scene with Landa, such a chilling and memorable moment. Yet, you were able to retain some of this as a black and white flashback sequence, nicely done. I think what works here is the build up, you don't give away the game too early compared to the original film.
Taking out a big chunk of the Shosanna/Zoller subplot really moves the story along at a much better pace than the original film. I'll admit that I do miss some of Shosanna scenes in their full context but I don't miss Zoller's scenes at all. What really steals the show here is the added soundtrack. Every song presented here has been carefully chosen and suitably synchronised to their respective scenes. While the selection consists mostly of David Bowie songs, I liked the use of Talking Heads during Donny's introduction scene *chef's kiss* and Pink Floyd during the finale.
If I had a couple of criticisms, though not major ones. I would say that the introduction scene with the Bastards and 'Heroes' playing in the background was a bit too loud in parts, especially towards the end of the scene when Aldo was still talking. The other bit would be cutting out how Donny and Omar got the MP-40s before charging in and killing Hitler and co. Other than that everything else was perfect.
I highly recommend this edit, you won't be disappointed. Just good fun!
Where to start with this review. I will say up front that I did not like the original movie that this version is based on. I don't think subjects as sensitive as some in this film should be trifled with in such a flippant manner and made humorous.
I read all of these reviews and am curious as to whether these people understand this. Nonetheless, ot was recommended that I watch this version.
I can admit that it's an amazing achievement and certainly the best of these edits. It's also the most bold in the choices that ArtisDead madein what to keep and what to remove.
I didn't care for Hitler in my face screaming at me first thing but it became funny as I realized what he was ranting about. I think timing on zooming into the opening was perfectly timed. I didn't care much for the audio being muted during Raine's grandiose diatribe. It should have been louder and clearer.
However, I did like most of the music placement. Fame started off perfectly and introduced Landa in a precisely menacing manner.
The two best music placements weren't even by David Bowie in a movie edited have a great amount of his songs placed in it and dedicated to him. Very nice dedication in the beginning, by the way. Loved that.
Psycho Killer by The Talking Heads was a genius choice fit for the Bear Jew introduction. So perfectly placed Tarantino would blush. *chef's kiss*
The disturbing part of this movie is the part in which the Nazi treatment of Jews is treated so flippant. I like that ArtisDead downplayed that as much as possible by cutting out the beginning and saving the cutting for the end.
The part of this version that really saves it, sort of is the climactic moment. The Massacre in the theatre. Choosing to place the Pink Floyd song, "Pigs" here was the masterstroke. Absolutely amazing. From the moment you see Goebbels face and then Shoshannas face on the screen as if she's looking at him, it takes flight from there. The cigarette flick timed perfect to the start of the vocals. "Big man, pig man ha ha charade you are" then you see Hitlers face. To hear Nazis referred to as pigs while they are being massacred...there's a sublime beauty to that. Unforgettable.
"Changes" at the end? During that scene? Absolutely hilarious! Perfect after the explosive climax that preceded it.
I didn't want to like this version of a movie that I very much dislike but I have to give ArtisDead credit, it was an experience not easy forgotten.
If you don't mind the subject matter, this is highly recommended!
"Inglourious Basterds" is a film that I consider to be nothing short of perfect. There isn't a single moment I would dare to cut from it. However, what makes this fan edit truly special is that it's not an attempt to "fix" the original, as there's nothing broken to begin with. Instead, it's a captivating reimagining of the film, cleverly presented as an episode of television. Having watched it, I can confidently say that it's every bit as perfect as its source material.
Restructuring a masterpiece like this to center it around the narrative of the Basterds is no small task. Shosanna's storyline, in particular, holds a significant place in the original, and I'm sure omitting that iconic opening scene must have been quite a challenge. Nevertheless, the new narrative structure works seamlessly. After all, it's a story about the Basterds, and ArtIsDead has managed to retell the original tale in a fresh and authentic manner that remains faithful to Tarantino's vision.
The inclusion of new music, especially the Pink Floyd, is a stroke of genius. ArtIsDead knows how big of a Pink Floyd fan I am, and the choice of music elevates the fan edit to another level.
In conclusion, a job well done. This fan edit is a testament to the creativity and passion of its creator, ArtIsDead. It breathes new life into a beloved classic, offering a unique and captivating perspective that any fan of "Inglourious Basterds" should experience.
