Dear Quentin Tarantino,

Hey Q.T.,

Just saw Inglourious Basterds last night and I have to say, it’s not your strongest work.  First off, you tottally misspelled “Inglorious” with that extra U.  But beyond that I was truly disappointed, as a serious filmmaker myself, with your devil-may-care attitude toward keeping your historacal facts straight about World War Two.

Firstly, what in the world is a “Bear-Jew?”  Based on what I’ve watched on the History Chanell, or read in Maxim, I know there were bears throughout Europe in the 1930s and 40s, and of course there were also Jews.  But to the best of my knowledge, there has never been a sighting of a so-called “Bear-Jew.”  I know that former Presidant George Bush said he was, quote, “opposed to human-animal hybrids,” but until now I always thought he was just stupid.

Your film also detailed Adolf Hitler’s demise a little bit differently then what I believe history has told us to be true.  It is my understanding, based on a televised special on Discovery, that Frau Hitler’s end came after the war was almost over; or at least the part with the Germany.

Look, you make films that are meant to be both humorus and intelligent, I accept that.  But I believe its critical that we make films which don’t lower themselves for the average audience member.  When I made Transformers 2, I felt a deep responsibilty to raise people’s awareness of things like robots in disguise.

Needless to say, I think your a terrific writer of dialogue and you do action scenes pretty good too.  Keep swinging for the fences, Q.T.  You’ll get there.

      True, true. If you haven’t already seen it (Inglourious Basterds, that is), check it out. It’s a lot of fun!

    Poor grammar too?

    “Your film also detailed Adolf Hitler’s demise a little bit differently then what I believe history has told us to be true.”

    Correct: THAN??????
