Quentin Tarantino has done it again. Though not on the same caliber, or even close, to Pulp Fiction, this movie presented the qualities that would most likely win it an Academy Award. The focus of this picture, a fictional take on the end of World War 2. This thriller, with all its twists and turns still brought laughter at its unique, spin on "serious" battle scenes. Though the movie kept one dying to know more what was going to happen next, one was also dying to know how much longer the movie was going to last. Not many people can last the full 2 1/2 hours without casually glancing at their watch, but it was still worth the time spent.
In a nutshell, the movie did have all the characteristics to be remembered throughout the course of time. The special effects were not overplayed, but kept a nice balance between reality and fiction. Because of this, Brad Pitt's role in the movie gave the effect of a great actor, without the necessity of acting terrifically the whole time.
In conclusion, if you want to see a great movie, this is the choice for you. If you want to be that person that sees all the Academy Award winner's movies before the contest, this is for you. If you are a fan of Quentin Tarantino, this is the movie for you.
