Inglourious Basterds definitely not Glorious
Cannot quite believe this trash has been nominated for an Oscar. I liked Tarantino for a while - Resevoir and Pulp were both exceptional films that influenced many similary generic films to follow. But this? Tarantino's dialogue has become self-indulgent and just incredibly boring; the narrative drags like a bad smell following you every where you go; and the acting, apart from Waltz who was eminently watchable, came from the school of amateur dramatics, particularly Pitt who was an embarrassment from start to finish. Nominating this demonstrates once again that the Academy has no idea of what fine film making is all about. And for those of you who come back with the argument that he is parodying/homaging this that and the other? Don't. Parody and homage do not necessarily a good film make.
