Awesome: Inglourious Basterds
  • When Sgt. Rachtman nobly refuses to betray his country. And when Sgt. Donny Donowitz, the Bear Jew, beats his brains out with a baseball bat while pretending to be baseball legend Ted Williams. Wow.
  • The flashback of when Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz murdered 13 Nazi officers. Major Squick abounds, though some found Fetish Fuel in it, but either way, it's pure awesome.
  • When Hicox smoothly switches back to English after realizing he's been caught, and then Stiglitz's snarky "Facing the Bullets" One-Liner:
    Hicox: There's a special rung in Hell for people who waste good scotch. It seems I might be rapping at the door momentarily... (Takes a sip) I must say... damn good stuff, sir. Now... about this pickle we find ourselves in... it would appear there's only one thing left to do.
    Hellstrom: And what would that be...?
    Hicox: Stiglitz.
    Stiglitz (in English, to Hellstrom): Say "Auf Weidersehn" to your Nazi balls!
  • When the theater burns as Shosanna's giant face laughs maniacally on-screen, and Donny and Omar shoot the living daylights out of everyone. Bonus points for Donny shooting Hitler's face into pudding.
  • The last scene when Lt. Aldo Raine gives Landa a swastika scar on his forehead as Utivitch grins like crazy.
    • "Nah, I'll prob'ly just get chewed out. Hell, I been chewed out before."
      Lt. Aldo Raine: This might just be my masterpiece.
  • When the Basterds are breaking Stiglitz out of prison, they gun down the Nazi guards, and he just casually sits there without twitching as the guards are being blown away.
  • Sergeant Donowitz shooting Hitler over and over and over just to make sure he's really dead.
