Inglorious Basterds

I watched Inglorious Basterds last night. I liked it but did not think it was a great film. Better than Death Proof but not by much. I might have liked it better if I hadn't read the script and knew what was going to happen. When I saw the soundtrack listing when the movie came out I did wonder if the "Eastern Condors Theme" was from the Sammo Hung film and it was. He takes the music from Sammo's jumping on metal springboards to kill a guard before he kill his friends. and uses for Eli Roth's buddy taking out one of Hitler's guards. I doubt many people would have gotten the reference and of course "Eastern Condors" is basically a remake of "the Dirty Dozen". The music starts at around 4:20 into the clip.
