So why does Tarantino hate us so much? He hates us for liking his movies the way we do; he hates us because he can so easily bring us round to enjoying the sight of people being gathered into a closed space so that they can be exterminated. He hates you for how easily you can be pushed into the Nazi position, as long as the people getting killed are themselves Nazis. He hates you because you are the fascist and you don’t even know it. And he proposes the self-consuming grindhouse solution to this grindhouse dilemma, which is that people like you have to die. You will uphold your death sentence with your applause.
the film has much more going on in contrast with IB which was much less about WWII and much more about WWII movies
I never bothered watching Inglourious Basterds because it looked like a pile of shit and Tarantino was already skating on thin ice with me after Kill Bill. After reading Thorne's analysis I'm glad I didn't. If a porn director left a bunch of clever-clever references inside a porn movie about how porn is really exploitative and porn watchers are a bunch of lonely wankers, it wouldn't mean the movie is suddenly worth watching, it reinforces the decision not to.
What's the over/under on the use of the n-word? Not sure there's any way around it in this one given the setting.

Like, say..... this
That's fair enough; credit should go where it is do. My response is based in the fact that art is, for the most part, assembled from other things
