Was thoroughly unimpressed. I usually love Taratino's work but this one didn't live up to the billing whatsoever, especially the way he was hyping it.
Man I loved it. I laughed my ass off.
Keeping the sunshiners in check since 2000.
There were some funny parts. I didn't feel like there was the great dialogue and banter between characters that I usually love in his films. Christoph Waltz character dying kind of bugged me too, I was much more interested in him than Django. Plus the way he died was kind of bizarre.
Pulp Ficton, Reservoir Dogs, and Inglorious Bastards are three of my favorite movies so I guess I was just expecting a lot.
same here. I've seen it twice now in theaters. Can't wait to own it.
He was great

I thought the movie was fantastic. I too, thought the german bounty hunter was the best actor in the movie. And for those complaining about the use of the "n" word, I really can't see how you can make a movie about slavery - whether it's comedic or not - and not use the "n" word one hundred times.
On a side note, I think it's funny that Jamie Foxx is the first celebrity shown on that you-tube clip about celebrities against gun violence, yet in this movie he glorifies gun violence and perpetuates the feeling that shooting people with a gun makes him a hero. (ps - don't send this thread to Wells - if you want to argue this point, I'll join you over there in another thread!).
I loved it. I thought it was a bit long in the middle, which is Tarantino. I normally love the way he drags things out, but in this one I didn't really feel the peril, so it did feel long. That said, in two movies Christoph Waltz has become my favorite actor, and it's not real close. Great performances from everyone involved.
Django was just nominated for Best Picture for the 2013 Academy Awards

Tarantino got fucked though. No Leo or Foxx either. Hmm...
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
It was good but not great. The acting was top notch across the board, but the Waltz character development left me disappointed big time. Something went awry for me with much of the Candie-land part too. Lots of great moments but it didnt all come together. I enjoyed Basterds much more.

Why do all movies these days have to be 3 hours long? I have no interest in sitting in a theater for that long. Too big of a commitment.
Christoph Waltz with the golden globe win, QT for best orig. screenplay win, good for them. I don;'t know how QT found that guy, but he's fast becoming one of my fav actors
The opening scene in Basterds is one of my favorite scenes of all time. Brilliance.
I saw Django Unchained today. It was great up through the handshake scene, then went straight into the toilet. The remainder of the movie was atrocious.
Christoph Waltz was great as always, but I didn't particularly care for Jamie Foxx in the Django role.
Agree with this. I did not like the movie once Christoph Waltz left.
Finally getting a chance to see this today at 4.
Then, plenty of time to get ready for the asskicking of Walmart. Go green!
Dominating Press Conferences Since 2007
Yeah, Waltz, Dicaprio, and Jackson were all terrific.
Foxx was pretty "meh" in his role. Not bad, just not the level the other 3 were.
Agree with this. Foxx was good but the other 3 were outstanding. When Sam Jackson makes his first appearance, with the huge tirade about Dicaprio letting Django eat dinner with them or something. I am pretty sure I chuckled out loud in the theatre.
Can't believe I'm saying this, but I was very unimpressed with the movie. "Inglorious Basterds" is one of my favorite movies of the last decade, and although I wasn't fully expecting this movie to be as good, based on reviews and what I had heard, I was expecting it to be close.
Unfortunately, it fell very short of those lofty expectations. Waltz was good in this movie, but he was truly outstanding in IB, which IMO is where he earned his Oscar. Jamie Foxx's character just never seemed to have any direction or development, and Leo, one of my favorite actors, didn't really seem to fit in at all with his character (not his fault - it just wasn't a good part for him, IMO).
Maybe I put the movie on too high of a pedestal going into it, as last night I rented "Looper" and thought it was very, very good, but I think a 5/10 rating on this flick might be generous. Just....wasn't.....very.....good.
Quentin needed a better editor and more varieties in the stories. The cool thing about movies like Inglorious Basterds and Pulp Fiction were the amount of interesting short stories that intertwined to the larger arc of the movie.
Django disappointed in that regard and, in my opinion, fell flat.
I agree with the 5/10 rating.
This board rates movies like it rates women. And Django is the 135 lb fatty you'd only bang after a long night at the Shark.
I just watched Django and loved it, front to back. It had all the makings of a great Tarantino film. Great dialogue, likeable badguys, conflicted goodguys, Tom Wopat, creative use of color, thoughtful soundtrack, revenge, amplified stereotypes, awkward quiet moments that ramp up to fast-moving violence and near-x-rated gore...this chick with a mole by her ear and back arm fat was hot and I took her home. We're dating now.
I thought it moved, that the performances were excellent and believable across the board, that the gunplay was gorey and hilarious, and the soundtrack? Enrico Morricone, John Legend, Johnny Cash, Rza, Tupac, Jim Croce???
One of Quentin's best. Don't know what people are thinking about with Jamie Foxx, his character is a brooding, stewing, quiet, powdered keg of revenge, and he played it to perfection. Jackson might have pulled off one of the most despicable bad guys ever, DiCaprio was a sinister ball of chemical imbalance, and Christoph Waltz just continues a streak of powerful, emotional performances.
I really can't find a flaw in this movie. It moved a lot faster than Kill Bill and the characters were all pretty likable.
I go 9/10 on Django. I did drink 2 bottles of wine last night. But I just woke up, I'm sober, I just rolled over, and I'm at peace with my decision.
I'm making breakfast.
i think the casting of foxx was okay. better than will smith who was originally considered for the role.
I haven't seen it yet, and I can't wait. I love Tarantino
Django Unchained is out at Redbox today. Got my copy reserved and will watch tonight. Love Tarantino--can't wait.
