I see nothing wrong with applauding after a movie in the right circumstances. It's not for the filmmakers benefit, it's a social thing. A way to express your excitement at a shared experience. Same reason people clap after a rollercoaster.

Plot holes become obvious and irritating when the movie is shit.
When it is awesome, we don't care.
When it is awesome, and is well aware of its plot holes and the like and still DOES NOT CARE because it is so awesome, we just have to applaud.

Basterds fits into the third category.

that is completely subjective my friend.... you could sit there and make the same argument for Transformers 2... not that I think it's awesome, because I find it a loud of monkey shit covered in bile....

Yah, Except I hate the people who clap when a plane lands.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

Clap, cheer, hoot & holler, in fact.

I have never heard anyone clap after a rollercoaster or a plane trip.

Then never fly Ryanair.

If that is a real company it is the scariest name for a plane company I have heard. Makes it sound like one person named Ryan is single-handedly in control of a whole fleet of planes. Pass!

plane for me..... we got caught in a pretty bad storm, and the plane was getting shook like it was in the care of a british nanny.... people were crying... etc... I felt like I was on Space Mountian and enjoyed it... but when the plan got out of the storm, and all was calm, people started cheering and clapping...

and of course, when that all stopped, I shouted "lets do that again... EXCITING!"... to which I got booed.....
