Inglorious Basterds (2009)

Director: Quentin Tarantino7736093674_2e8414a35c_o

Writer: Quentin Tarantino

Starring: Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger, Eli Roth, Christoph Waltz, Mélanie Laurent

Description: Two storylines are followed in this Oscar winning movie about Nazi-occupied France. First, a group of Jewish U.S soldiers who plots several attacks against the Nazis without mercy. Second, a French girl who had to watch her family slaughtered by Nazi soldiers, and who is now fully grown up and ready to plan her revenge. The storylines align, and with the help of a German actress and a movie theater, they plan to assassinate a group of Nazi leaders. Quentin Tarantino did it once again, with superb directing and script, and the work of supporting actor Christoph Waltz, who deservedly got an Oscar for his role in this movie.

Rating: 8.5 / 10

Director: Andrew Niccol215px-Lordofwar

Writer: Andrew Niccol

Starring: Nicolas Cage, Jared Leto, Ethan Hawke

Description: War/crime/drama with Nicolas Cage playing an international, unorthodox arms dealer. Witness the incredible cat and mouse chase between Interpol agent Valentine (Hawke) and the Orlov brothers (Leto & Cage). This film is somewhat based around the real life arms dealer Viktor Bout. Great movie overall and my favorite one with Nicolas Cage
