    Inglorious Basterds is what really made me hate QT. It just struck me as recycled garbage from previous films with a sloppy plot, gimmicky scenes that felt forced just to add shock value, and just terrible transitions.

    The stylish violence, the homage to older classics and long dialogues was just typical QT film school. Every director recycles. I thought the plot was great and intelligent, as well as the pacing and script. It wasn't what the trailer indicated, and that's just a dumb mindless movie about slaughtering Nazi's in over-the-top fashion. And it had one of the best opening scenes I've seen in any movie. And the Jew hunter should go down as one of the greatest villains of all time.

    I'm not a QT apologist, the one flaw about Inglourious Basterds was the Jew bear scene, that was really the one scene I thought could have spent some time in the editing room. QT is one of those directors that's very stubborn when it comes to cutting unnecessary length.

    First rule of the Deadpool Fan Club is we do not speak of the Deadpool Fan Club.

    But those are two incredible movies.. and Kill Bill series was pretty solid, especially the first.

    Sorry, I'm on the Tarantino bandwagon.

    ( I did not care for Grindhouse. lol)
