Quentin Tarantino, sigh.

Why can't Tarantino just MAKE A FILM? Ingourious Basterds (seriously, that spelling) would be a good, solid piece of work if it were made by someone else. Get rid of the spelling, remove the wacky "anachronistic" soundtrack, get rid of the out-of-place interludes, the annoying freeze-frames, Eli Roth and Mike Myers, trim it down to 100 minutes max, stop working in chapters because it just doesn't hang together and form a cohesive whole, and you would be left with a really rather interesting, entertaining, tight film. But this is just... messy. It's like, yeah I get it Quentin, it's "art", it's weird, it's out there, it's what you do. But it just isn't good enough. Stop it, please.
