Pffft! As someone who was rapidly getting fed up with Tarantino I was blown away by Basterds.
It's Cinematic, entertaining and, on occasion, nerve janglingly tense. Sure it rambles a bit at times but overall it was one of my faves of the year.
In a time when any monkey can pick up a camera, shake it about a bit and then dump the resulting mess in an editors lap to fix, Basterds was a breath of fresh air and a reminder that some film-makers actually understand what they're doing.
