Iíll give it this, though: DiCaprio, Waltz, and Jackson made it worth watching.
How is it anything like Inglorious Basterds plot wise? The only callback to any other movie I caught was a nod to Blazing Saddles and then back to Tarantino's own Reservoir Dogs with the play acting within a movie, which by the way is a genius way to remind you that it's a movie, so yes...have all the fun you can watching it.
Also, the violence dumb and unnecessary? Hello, this is Quentin Tarantino and a Western (err Southern) so it was always going to have that. This is what he does. It felt more rewarding for the bad guys to actually be shown to get horrible deaths, because that's what makes it great. It's visual flair...icing on the cake. Cathartic.
