I kinda enjoyed Tarantino's films, but this is actually true.
Why I hate Quentin Tarantino's hideous brand of historical revenge fantasy.

Quentin Tarantino's formula for his historically set blood-bath movies, which include Inglourious Basterds and now Django Unchained, is now clear: Ignore actual history. Instead of trying to depict what happened, instead depict what should have happened. 

But the worst part is that Tarantino lionizes his absurdly invented heros in a way that craps on the actual heroes of history. The real-life men and women who sacrificed their lives for the greater good of mankind are tossed aside like yesterday's trash. 

A new New Yorker piece does a brilliant job at highlighting this odious quality of Tarantino's work. 

In the case of Django Unchained, Tarantino sets up his revenge fantasy by fabricating a passive African American response (both slave and free) to the evil institution of slavery, and Tarantino's imagined Django is the one and only active resistance to that institution. In reality, there were many thousands of historically documented acts of sometimes violent, sometimes brilliant, often ultra-heroic acts of brave resistance by African Americans -- the people who in Tarantino's sick re-writing of history are a buch of passive wimps standing on the sidelines. 

That's why I think everyone should boycot this horrible movie. It turns real-life heroes into dumb bystanders for the sole purpose of emphasizing Tarantino's juvenile and violent revenge fantasies.

Veterans and war survivors have one more reason to celebrate. Obama signed a bill allowing an increase on their disability benefits.
