It doesn't really matter - just one I don't agree should be there.
I'm a big Tarantino fan but I thought Basterds was overrated. I was surprised it was so popular. I guess people want brutally kill Nazis vicariously. Sadistic for some, cathartic for others. Alot of people feel it's his best work but I don't think it compares favorably to Pulp Fiction or especially Kill Bill!
