Finally saw the movie yesterday, and I was waiting forever to see it. The movie turned out to be a disappointment, nothing what I thought it would be the whole spaghetti western style was cool but I dunno. One thing that got me was Brad Pitt I loved his character but he got like 20 min of screen-time while some no-name actors got the rest.

What did you guys think of the movie

I liked the movie for the most part.  However, I did not go in expecting much realism or anything less than Tarantino's stereotypical style.  I thought Brad Pitt's role was a bit too cliche and forced.  On the other hand, Christoph Waltz put in an amazing performance as the SS officer Landa.  Perhaps he should be considered for an Oscar?

The SS officer takes the cake. Damn good role. Pitt should go on making babies and retire from movies. As for a plot? There isn't any other than turning history on its ear and upside down.

1.  Brad Pitt is a horrible actor (cf. Achillis in the movie Troy), but he was good in this one.
 
2.  Realism?  From Tarantino?  IF that's what anybody was looking for, I don't think you are familiar with his work.
 
3.  I loved the movie.

Or The Dirty Dozen meets Sam Peckinpah's The Wild Bunch...Admittedly Q.T. is not my ideal of a cinematographic great, but gentlemen this pic was a real stinker!

Dirty Dozen is what I meant not Kelly's Heroes!

I watched Battle of the Bulge.  I was wondering how they managed to conjure up so many working/functional tiger tanks.

Good movie, but I can't figure out how Miemuex became a woman so quick and somehow accquired a movie theater at her ripe age. 
 
 
Alright movie, but a Tarantino flop, it doesn't meet expectations.

In Battle of the Bulge movies the German tanks are American Perishing that were built right at the end of WW2. The tanks used by the Americans in that movie were M24 light tanks. The final tank battle in the movie was shot in Arizona or somewhere simalar.

Oh, just did some checking. The Tiger's in "Battle of the Bulge" were M-47 Pattons, not Perishing. But the US tanks were M24.

More or less agree with the good King here. I just don't think that Brad Pitt is that bad of an actor overall (in my own opinion of course). I've enjoyed his performances in several movies.

That makes a lot of sense considering they didn't look all that much like Tigers in reflection.
