Inglourious Basterds (2009)
Directed by Quentin Tarantino
Starring: Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger, Christoph Waltz and Eli Roth
This is not your typical war movie and it is especially a unique war movie about WW2. A group of American soldiers are dropped behind the hostile German lines and create havoc killing German military leaders and bombing targets inside Germany. It is both violent and hilarious. This is one of Quentin Tarantino best movies and the dialogue and acting are excellent. Especially chilling and mesmerizing is the role played by Christoph Waltz as the sadistic and cunning German SS officer who pursues the group of Americans.
School Daze (1988)
Directed by Spike Lee
Starring: Laurence Fishburne, Giancarlo Esposito and Tisha Campbell-Martin
Spike Lee tells a story of the division between different groups of black students at an all black university i. It is a comedy but there are many serious and uneasy scenes that tell of the diversity among black America. There is a musical scene in the middle of the movie where a group of light skinned black female students dance and sing against a group of dark skinned female students that is like a tense boxing match. School Daze portrays the conflicts of class that mirrors the tensions present in every culture in modern America. This is a drama with comedy and music that reflects some of the issues the director had experienced as a student at Morehead College.
