Revenge, violence, torture and hatred glorification.
I didn't see inglorious bastards cause it sounded bad, and morally warped. I didn't mind kill bill because while it was a revenge movie, there was no really sadistic pleasure taken in causing extra pain, in that sense, it was emotionally realistic. Also the suffering and the anguish of the thirst for revenge was portrayed.
These two latest films of QT's glorify burning seething hatred, torture, pleasure in suffering (Inglorious and Django)- the worst kind of traits you can humanly empathise with. Every one who is killed is "a bad guy", but the "good guys" are also bad guys, in that they revel in the suffering of others (not just the deaths by the way). The difference is only in the backstory, character focus, and degree of sadism. This blurs moral lines in horrible ways, and tempts you into taking satisfaction and joy, not just in victory, but in human suffering.
This is some sick stuff, and I am going to wait until QT stops making revenge movies, before I revisit his movies. They have lost all real human emotional qualities and all sense of moral compass. And BTW, its not that this film grossed me out, its that the main character had a real thing for blood and pain, and that was treated as just and right, not as an emotional curse/burden.
