    Inglourious Basterds is a critically acclaimed historical revenge fantasy movie that uses 1944 Nazi Germany to shed light on the biased American view of World War II, following the works of Friedlander and Rosenfield. The movie uses Nazi Germany as a setting, but unlike the mainstream and kitschy Nazi Germany movies, it rewrites the history of the end of World War II, therefore posing the question of “what if?” to the audience. The movie carefully causes the audience to question themselves and leads to a hypercritical reflection of both the audience and their view of the end of World War II. All of the serious and critical reflection is glazed over, however, with slapstick humor and parody the director, Tarantino is known for in movies like…

    Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds [sic, sic] has been hyped as World War II action movie-cum-sadistic gorefest. In reality, it is a self-indulgent snorefest. I thought I would need a gin and tonic before I went in, but it turns out what I needed was a cup of coffee. Yes, there is some gore and sadism, but frankly I found myself hoping for more of it. Anything, really, to relieve the sheer boredom. This is Quentin Tarantino’s worst movie, and that is saying a lot, given how bad Kill Bill,…
