Inglorious Bastards movie references

There are already lively discussions in our forums about what movies influenced Quentin‘s new film and what films might be referred to through direct mentioning, character names or other aspects. One central cinematic influence on Tarantino is the Macaroni Combat genre, which, just like the Spaghetti Western describes western movies made in Italy, means Italian war movies of the 60s,70s and 80s. A particular favorite is Inglorious Bastards itself, but there are many more. We invite you to discover our – yet small – section on Macaroni Combat at The Deuce. Enjoy reading.
