Inglourious Basterds is a masterpiece. The scene you mention is great, but I can't believe you think it is more tense than the opening 20 minutes on the French farm. IMO, that is some of the finest filmmaking and one of the best scenes I have ever seen in any movie, period.

I did actually mention that scene, but I edited it out and it did not make the final version of my post...

Principal shooting is complete, it's in post-production. Working title "Kill Khan vol.1". It's pulp science fiction! Here's the trailer:
 

 
Memorable lines abound:

  • "'What' ain't no planet I ever heard of. Do they speak Klingon on What? Klingon, my friend, DO YOU SPEAK IT?"
  • "Each and every man under my command owes me one-hundred Romulan ears.And I want my ears."
  • "Aw, man, I just phasered Lt. Marvin in the face."
  • "So, pretty please … with sugar on top. Clean the Vulcan starship."
  • "Is there a sign in front of my house that says 'Dead Redshirt Storage'?"
  • "I'ma get 20th Century on you."
  • "And I will strike down upon thee, with great vengeance, and furious anger, my photon torpedo."
  • "Oooh, that's a Fizzbin! Is that the way you say it? 'That's a Fizzbin?'" "No. You just say Fizzbin." "How fun!"

Do you know what they call a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in the Beta Quadrant?

Was thinking of going to that this evening. It looked good.

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. But a skunkweed will always be a skunkweed and instantly recognizable.

It’s charming and funny. The main character is the same actress who played the very quirky cousin in Crazy Rich Asians. Takes a very different role here, in a good way.

There is dialogue in Chinese with subtitles, but I think the majority was in English.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I was able to understand.
