Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

My wife just watched Inglourious Bastards on DVD and I can say that it's very dieselpunk. In addition to having the two mandatory elements I mention in my blog it has a heavy dose of irreverence (the Spaghetti Western theme is great) but it also rewrites history (certainly a feature found in a lot of Punk genre). While it's rather violent (which one should expect from a Quentin Tarantino movie) it's very, very good.

..very true, Larry. I did feel like a lot of the action sequences were lacking. .

I agree that some parts dragged. I really enjoyed the scenes with the Bastards. It's when they spent a long time with the Germans that I would get bored. I would have liked to have seen more action where they were killing "natzies." :)

While I definitely agree with Tome..
It had such a strong 'what if' element it was hard for me not to like it..
Have either of you seen the 1978 make of it? I'd like to track it down. .

I saw it last month and it didn't strike me the way others got it. Almost every scene drags on five - ten minutes longer than it needs to. Granted, I know this is a Tarantino film, but I was expecting something snappier. Good characters, but I'd love to see a "recut for time" version.
