An Observation on "Inglourious Basterds"

Given that this is a Quentin Tarantino movie it’s no surprise that the murdered Jews in “Inglourious Basterds” have no meaning in and of themselves however. They’re just props, as much a part of the production design as the farmhouse table and Landa’s comic pipe...He thinks that the Holocaust should be answered with another holocaust.

I haven't seen "Inglorious Basterds" yet, but I probably will. After long stressful days of serving humanity, occasionally I need to offset thing by watching films in which the bad guys get what they deserve.

By the way, "Defiance", about the Bielsky brothers, is available in DVD. Lots of healthy and therapeutic violence directed against those who deserve it, romance, attractive forest scenery.

Getting back at the bad guys is also a contribution to humanity

Indeed. The very basi thereof,as it were.

This film is the formula for how to keep yourself from falling into Director Hell. Make a Jewish propaganda Movie. Pick Nazi's because they have never been used as bad guys.

If making a Pro Fascist Jewish Propaganda Movie isn't up your alley, then make a move about a gay, native-American female Veteran with a disability who is being thrown off her land by "the man." Add a black co-star as the source of wisdom and Ashley Judd as the white girl who is going to help and you can pull yourself out of director hell as well.

Sorry, but I don't know how to say this more politely: YOU ARE AN IDIOT. This film is so obviously supportive of the Jewish point of view, it is absolutely ridiculous for you to criticize it for that. Someone like you would find something to complain about in paradise. I would not call the film a masterpiece, but it is very, very, very good. And extremely enjoyable to watch as a Jew.

Sorry, but I don't know how to say this more politely: YOU'RE A JEW... OF COURSE YOU'RE GOING TO FEEL THAT WAY. There are, of course, other viewpoints. If you want to succeed, please the crowd. The crowd in Hollywood happens to be Jewish. See the LOGIC there?
