I can't speak for others, but I liked Basterds because it was a WW2 film that had the attitude of your typical Tarantino film - which I've never seen done before. It was a war film that was just full of cool. That, and Christoph Waltz's performance was fucking amazing. One of the most intimidating characters I've ever seen.
i think its the actual dialogue that saves Inglorious. some of it is long winded but there is a lot of detail in it. for instance, the german bar scene where the british soldier orders 3 shots and uses the wrong 3 fingers and the german soldier figures it out straight away. that was one of my favourite parts of the film.
Inglorious also had a lot of 'british' wit in it which is why i think he did a brillaint job with casting. Mike Myers plays the general (i think) perfectly as to how naive they were. and of course how sadistic the nazis were, Christopher Waltz did that brillaintly.
Tarrantino has a lot of depth to his films which can take a while to get.
