Yeah, he did. I love Pulp Fiction, and Reservoir Dogs, and both Kill Bills (especially part 1 with Gogo Yabari), but to me, Basters was the best of them all.
Man...I'm a huge QT fan....but IMHO IB was the worst of all of his films. NOW....that's not to say I think it is a terible movie....I mean with QT...his worst is still miles ahead of anything else out there.
For me it was awful due to the fact that this was the first time QT had ever handled actual historical figures and situations....all of his prior films were fiction. I just cannot watch a film that twists history to the degree he did....I found it lame.
With most of QT's work...he makes you actually almost like his villians....Marcelis Wallice/Vincent & Jules, Ordell Robbie, Bill. IMHO...the Nazi's were just too easy a target for his type of villian...too easy to hate.
There was no satisfaction with the way they handled the most hated Nazi....they carved in his forehead...big deal....he still lived. I expect more from that situation.
AND....the end was so over the top it was laughable...which I admit may have been what he was going for....but none the less....we all know it is nowhere near what actually happened and that really irratated me.
I will say it did have classic QT dialouge and excellent scenes....I just think it's his weakest film. It's the only QT film I do not own.
