Impossible to review. More of a love letter to late 60s Hollywood than anything else. Less action-y than you might guess. Highly stylized but less so than his other films. Worth seeing, for sure, but it isn’t a masterpiece, imo. 

Can't stand QT's alternate reality fairy tales. As a Jew I found Inglourious Basterds a particularly offensive example. I won't be seeing this.

I’m Jewish and I found Inglorious Basterds cathartic. Absolutely loved it. 

Cathartic? A few Jews change the course of history? Silly Jews, if only you had done what the fairy tale portrayed you could have avoided all that misery. This is a tribute to the 6 million who died and many more who suffered? I am not looking for, nor need, a Jewish revenge fantasy when the reality was so horrible. If you want to see an alternate reality show concerning WWII, may I suggest the much deeper The Man in the High Castle?
