Really?! That line annoyed me to no end. Tarantino was literally patting himself on the back as he wrote that line, I'm sure of it.
@ Rae: I would have to think you're absolutely right! Pretty egotistical, but I thought it was a sweet sign off. I had a bunch to pick from with this film, but I decided to go with the last lines.
Well the most annoying thing about Tarantino for me is that he can't leave his ego behind when he makes a film.That said, despite my initial chilly reaction to Inglourious Basterds, it has grown on me. I'm pretty sure I'll be among the first in line when it hits blu-ray. :)
@ Rae: Glad to hear you gave the film a shot despite your feelings for the director. I think part of that quote -- besides his ego -- was meant to show that he really believed in this film. He has said that this movie is the closest thing to Pulp Fiction he has ever done and I think he was trying to get that message across. Perhaps he wants his name to be synonymous with more than just one masterpiece.
