Well look who the cat dragged in: - ) I knew it would take a movie controversy. Tell me what you think about Inglutenous Basterds. This is one time Peter Bradshaw and I saw eye to eye.
I've said it before, I'll say it again: Try to think of another "war" movie consisting almost completely of scenes featuring people sitting at tables (or in a circle) and talking.

Also, this movie continues his habit of name-checking East Tennessee, however inappropriately. One scene is set in Chattanooga (albeit a Chattanooga with Spanish moss), and there are references to the plantations of Gatlinburg.

I am not going to see this one, but I caught Basterds on a plane flight. I affirmed my dislike of QT with that flick, which was really formed with Pulp Fiction, an imminently unwatchable movie produced by a lazy author who is an equally lazy reader of BIG IMPORTANT BOOKS ABOUT CULTURE.
