Exclaim! Satisfies Its Cinematic Appetite with Inglourious Basterds, In the Loop and More in This Week's Film Review Round-Up
Published Aug 21, 2009Heads up readers: After taking a peek through Exclaim!'s Recently Reviewed film section this week, you just might begin to feel a little inkling to jump onto the cinematic bandwagon.
First up is the much-anticipated filmic return of director Quentin Tarantino with Inglourious Basterds. The film follows Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) and his team of titular "basterds" - a group of Jewish soldiers - as they hunt Nazis during WWII, though a much deeper story lays waiting beneath the film's Nazi scalp-hunting surface.
We also take a look at British satirical film In the Loop, which delves into a government official's slip-up, and The Boys: The Sherman Brothers' Story, a cinematic tale of Walt Disney Studios' in-house songwriters Robert and Richard Sherman.
