    Universal's newly released Blu-ray of Quentin Tarantino's Glourious Basterds follows a great heritage of films about the love of the cinema.

    From Buster Keaton's 1924 Sherlock Jr. to Harry Hurwitz's The Projectionist with Chuck McCann in the booth, to Guisseppe Tornatore's Cinema Paradiso and now Mr. Tarantino's Glourious Basterds, these films have always been something special.

    Only now with Nazis.

    Inglourious Basterds is a glorious Blu-ray, both visually and sonically -- the track extremely full, rich and resoundingly satisfying.

    Terrific film. Great new Blu-ray.

    Recommended.

    Interesting comparisons! I'm now even more psyched to see this. (I got the disc yesterday but will wait until next week when my father visits to watch it.)

    fantastic film

    loved it in the cinema, and it looks truly beautiful on Blu-Ray

    got this last week, and have watched it twice already (like the new Star Trek which I also saw in cinema and on Blu-Ray at home)

    I.B. gets better with each watch as you can focus on the crackling dialogue and appreciate the films structure

    highly recommended

    Just got done watching this one as a blind buy. I went in with zero expectations and came out amazed at how beautifully crafted this picture is. QT's best since Pulp, in my opinion.

    I like how QT went back to animorphic with this one. His first since Pulp. I know Robert Richardson hates Super 35 but he uses it with Scorsese, and he and QT used it on Kill Bill because the animorphic zoom was too slow for the quick zooms QT wanted. This is his best since Pulp, and the more you watch it the better it gets. Certain critics complained about no battle scenes, but so what. Incredible blu ray transfer. Hope the oscars do this film justice.

    Sound design in relation to music was interesting.
