Brad Pitt in Inglorious BasterdsQuentin Tarantino has done it again. Sure, his new WWII flick 'Inglourious Basterds' is self-indulgent -- it features plenty of those trademark scenes that begin with 20 minutes of highly intelligent banter and end with a 30-second bang of graphically-violent gloury served with a generous side helping of blood and guts. And it's long -- 153 minutes long to be exact. But all that is as it should be. After all, this is a Tarantino flick, not 'My Little Pony' (or a Michael Bay movie, for that matter).

With all those quintessential Quentin pistons firing, the 'Pulp Fiction' auteur delves headlong into rewriting WWII history, imagining what would have happened if Lt. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) and his merry band of Nazi-scalping Jewish-American soldiers had existed.
