Where did you watch this movie?

Evocative and intense, this thrilling war drama tells the fictional alternate history story of two plots to assassinate Nazi Germany's political leadership, one planned by a young French Jewish cinema proprietor (Laurent), and the other by a team of Jewish-American soldiers led by First Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Pitt). In Nazi-occupied France, young Jewish refugee Shosanna Dreyfus witnesses the slaughter of her family by Colonel Hans Landa. Narrowly escaping with her life, she plots her revenge several years later when German war hero Fredrick Zoller takes a rapid interest in her and arranges an illustrious movie premiere at the theater she now runs. With the promise of every major Nazi officer in attendance, the event catches the attention of the "Basterds", a group of Jewish-American guerilla-soldiers led by the ruthless Lt. Aldo Raine. As the relentless executioners advance and the conspiring young girl's plans are set in motion, their paths will cross for a fateful evening that will shake the very annals of history.

You haven't seen war untill you've seen it through the eyes of Quentin Tarantino.
Once upon a time in Nazi occupied France...
Character Error
In a scene Lt Hicox said prior to the war he wrote a book about the film director GW Pabst, who described as being German. If Hicox really wrote Pabst's biography, he would know that Pabst was Austrian.

Character Error
In a scene where the British soldier Lt. Archie Hicox is introduced to his superiors, he is instructed to "stand at ease" which is still a formal position, but Hicox "stands easy", which allows him to relax arms and move the feet.

Character Error
Hugo Stiglitz is shown slowly sharpening his knife in one shot and at the end of each stroke there is an ominous "shhhlick" sound as he twists the blade with a flick. This would actually remove the edge he is attempting to sharpen, and dull the blade.

Character Error
In a scene where Eric hands a glass to Bridget, he calls her "Frau" instead of "Fräulein." "Frau" implies she is married and/or elderly, which Bridget isn't.

Character Error
Fenech salutes with no head dress on, which is acctually an incorrect British military custom. The same is true for the German soldiers in the bar.

Character Error
Landa says to Lapadite that Hitler fetched him from Austria. But to the fact Austria was a part of the German Reich at the time and was called "Ostmark".

At the end of the film, Landa is handcuffed by Utivich, but when he is being "marked" by Raine, his hands are free and gripping the soil.

The level of beer in the glass, shaped like a boot, of the Nazi-officer in the basement pub, which changes between shots.

Factual Mistake
Standartenfuhrer Landa is wearing the correct rank patches on his collar, but in few scenes they are pointing in the wrong direction.
Quentin Tarantino worked on the script of this film for almost a decade.

One of the Jewish names carved on The Bear Jew's bat is Anne Frank.

This is the first Quentin Tarantino film to win an Oscar for acting Christoph Waltz for Best Supporting Actor. Waltz later won the same Oscar again for Tarantino's Django Unchained.

Christoph Waltz's character speaks the most different languages in the movie: 4 such as English, French, German, and Italian.

This is Quentin Tarantino's highest-grossing film since Pulp Fiction (1994).

In 'Quentin Tarantino's Universe', the character of Lt Aldo Raine is Floyd's - aka The pothead on the couch from True Romance (1993) great-grandfather.

Christoph Waltz dubbed his own performance in the German version.

As of 2010, this is Quentin Tarantino's film with the most Academy Award nominations (8).

Col. Hans Landa addresses all Germans of lower rank as "Herman".

British actor Simon Pegg was originally set to play Lt. Archie Hicox but was forced to pull out of the project because of scheduling conflicts. Later Michael Fassbender replaced him.

Previously Jean Reno turned down the role of Perrier LaPadite.

According to Brad Pitt, the film was shot sequentially.
