    I agree with most of your review. The dialogues scene needed to be trimmed a bit.

    I had a problem that you didn’t like the conclusion. The most thrust of the movie is that this didn’t happen. There were no Jewish vigilantes killing Nazis, Hitler wasn’t killed at a movie priemere.

    There are lots of movies that bend history. It’s creative “dramatic license.”

    You want to see Hitler pumped full of bullet holes and blown up. Yes, that didn’t happen, but you could do that in a movie.

    Mike Myers is an obscure actor?

    Branden, I see your point. Film is a venue for making stuff up but it just rubs me the wrong way. I can’t say too much about it as to not give too much away but when the climax is, uh, aflame, it was just so sadistic and clearly meant to capitalize on the widespread hatred for all things Nazi. It’s not that I had great sympathy for the Nazi’s but I am not so keen on delighting in that kind of violent glorification and I just felt icky feeling how much Tarantino was getting off on it.

    I will be seeing the film again, I think, so I can see it with a less critical eye.

    And, Gildor, I would consider Mike Myers to be an obscure choice for a Quentin Tarantino picture, not in general.
