Seriously though, what didn't you like? I loved how the story flowed. I loved the characters. I loved the dialogue. I loved the soundtrack. I loved the tension. And I was absolutely blown away by the film's climax. There wasn't one part of the film I didn't like.
I find Tarantino increasingly guilty of style over substance. I thought it was pointlessly violent, and lacked any real depth. I guess it probably came across like this because most of his films are basically westerns re-written with Tarantino's usual 'lets see how many clever slight of hands I can add'. I kept getting the feeling that QT was chuckling smugly to himself and thinking himself clever for having Jewish soldiers commit acts of horrific vengeance akin to Nazi atrocities. I don't like the notion that every German is a Nazi either.
Sure it was well made, he's a technically adept director, but what he does very well is isolate stylistic essences from other films and then paste them over his own and I'm not keen on that. Not really my kind of film.
