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.

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.

First of all, I loved the feeling that I was watching an anthology. The intro, which I’m assuming is in each of the 10 films was really well edited and felt like I was watching the opening of a Tarantino TV show.

The pacing of this was fantastic. I will admit I’ve only seen Inglorious Basterds twice - so I really never even noticed when cuts were happening. I actually like watching fanedits of movies I haven’t seen a bunch of times because sometimes I think it makes us too hard on the editor when we are expecting certain things to happen and then they don’t or are changed.

The music editing was probably my favorite part. The songs chosen were all classics and perfectly fit each scene. I found myself going to YouTube to watch the original scenes to compare the soundtracks because I wasn’t sure if the songs were originally in the movie. They were edited in so seemlessly. Even how they abruptly cut out in certain instances felt like Tarantino himself edited the scenes.

The story - I think the narrative flows very well even in this shortened format. I did remember the opening of the original film being Shosanna as a child hiding in the cabin and I was curious if by not starting the edit with that scene would make her motivations less clear. Then we get to the restaurant scene and ArtIsDead brilliantly does a quick flashback to the opening. The rest of the scene is so well acted that we get the entire backstory without even seeing it.

I liked that even though a lot was cut, the scenes that still needed the time to breathe and get their due time never felt rushed. The restaurant and buildup to the Mexican standoff were still as tense as I remembered them, even though I know a lot was cut.

Fantastic job and this is highly recommended! Now to find the time to watch the other episodes! Bravo!!

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!

Full disclosure: I am part of the Red Apple Crew, and was able to preview this edit. When I read that this film was to be cut down to a 60-minute episode, I thought "How on earth can it be done?!"; the story is so full already, that making trims and cuts would be difficult. ArtisDead has crafted a fantastic edit out of an already fantastic film!
The cuts, trims and re-arranging of scenes all work very well; there isn't much of the story that you're missing that would adversely affect the viewing experience.
The musical choices are fantastic, with heartfelt tributes to different musicians., plus the tone of the scenes with the new music hasn't been altered or watered-down. If anything, the tone has been made stronger through the use of new music. Editing music, and the removal of existing music from a film, can be extremely difficult, yet he has done a superb job here!
I genuinely loved this edit; some of the cuts are a tiny bit abrupt, however they didn't detract from my enjoyment, hence no reduction in the score I gave.
Great stuff overall!
