1. Brad Pitt talking ridiculous Italian in a Tenessee accent 2. Christoph Waltz in just about every scene he is in 3. An homage to the 80's pop video to the perfect Bowie song - but in a war film (the most perfect piece of cinematic history I will ever recall) 4. "It's a bingo!" 5. An entire movie so historically wrong, so utterly out of place in my war collection yet so repeatedly enjoyable.
1. The completely impossible and totally absurd, made so plausible that you don't feel any need to question a single thing about it from start to finish (except maybe that bit where...). 2. Sharlto Copley's superb metamorphosis from complete dork to harsh bastard to frightened fugitive to determined rescuer to... origami expert prawn. 3. There should be gangsta Nigerians in all movies from now on. Dealing in cat food. 4. Afrikaans/Scouse swearing. Fokken great. 5. The little kid alien. Kind of the inverse of Newt out of Aliens.
