In a Nazi-occupied France

In Kill Bill, Uma Thurman's Black Mamba scalps Lucy Liu's O-ren Ishii with a samurai. In the new film Inglourious Basterds, Lt. Aldo Raine's men must each collect 100 Nazi scalps. Quentin Tarantino directs another delightful, bloody ride.

Inglourious Basterds does not disappoint. I'm still recovering from the shock of watching the Bear Jew, one of the Basterds, beat a Nazi officer to death with a baseball bat. In another memorable scene, Brad Pitt's Aldo the Apache questions Diane Kruger's Bridget von Hammersmarck about a rendezvous gone awry. To obtain more accurate information, he pushes his index finger into a bullet wound on her leg. Squish, squelch.

Christoph Waltz delivers as the dangerously intelligent, but comically vain, villain. Colonel Hans Landa of the SS is a man of fine tastes, versed in several languages. His reputation as The Jew Hunter is well-deserved, infamous for his hawk-like cunning and dogged pursuit of prey. Deadly and silently efficient, the man missed nothing. Eating apple strudel has never looked so sinister.

I watched this with my dad and kuya recently and I have to agree with you. I guess the most gruesome parts were when Aldo marked the Nazi's foreheads with swastikas.
