Quentin Tarantino may be redeemed yet

Finally watched “Inglorious Basterds” and found myself liking it more than I expected. It’s absurd, but not as violent as the tedious and repugnant “Kill Bill.” It’s a movie about movies, like all of QT’s work, but done very cleverly and the characters more or less work in their own terms–stereotypes of course, but sort of alive. Of course, as with all QT’s work, some scenes are too long and boring with endless chatter about nothing. Ultimately, evil but charming Nazi Christoph Waltz is worth the price of admission.
