These Inglourious Basterds quotes from Quentin Tarantino’s masterful movie about Nazi Germany and World War II are some of the most compelling words written for the big screen. You can almost see Brad Pitt (Lt. Aldo Raine) saying them as you read through them.
There are several quotes from Lt. Raine that are funny, witty, and shocking. There are also many quotes from him specifically about Nazis.
Hans Landa also delivered quite a litany of humorous, chilling, and shocking lines. The quotes about his analogy between the rat and the hawk depict one of the greatest movie scenes ever.
Now you might have a lot of questions about this movie, but let’s start with the obvious one…why the heck is “basterds” spelled wrong. Well, there are few theories, but no one (other than Quentin Tarantino) knows for sure.
The first theory is that Tarantino did it intentionally to distinguish his movie from the 1978 film The Inglourious Bastards. When asked about it once on the David Letterman show, Tarantino replied it was, “Quentin Tarantino spelling.” He did not give any more information though.
