The issue, it seems, isn't violence per se, because

"Saving Private Ryan" showed immense amounts of it with no outrcries on that point that I remember. Rather, gratuitous violence in films is the issue: is it appropriate to the story, i.e. is it a slasher film? Specific to Tarantino: he often has stated his fondness for violent genres. To attend his films and be upset at the explicit violence seems clearly self-defeating.

When younger, I enjoyed them. Now, I find the more violent scenes disgusting, unnecessary. Tarantino was hailed a a wunderkind when younger; his many-genre influenced style was new, exciting. Now, it seems tawdry, repetitious, and cynical.
