Was that Franco Nero with Jamie Foxx at the end of the clip? If so, I'm glad they gave respect to the real Django.

B. I wonder who QT is stealing from/leeching off of/putting his name on their work/for this movie.

An old spaghetti western called....Django, which apparently was a very violent movie for when it came out. After seeing this trailer I must go searching for it. Granted, I hope it has English subs since I do not speak Italian.

That movie is totally badass. It is also dubbed so no need to learn Italian.


Awesome to hear, I do love westerns so this should be a treat :)

fusillade762: DrowningLessons: My worry is that with Inglorious Bastards, his main source of reference seemed to be himself. And while I enjoyed the movie I guess (as an exercise in tension it was fantastic), what stopped me from liking it was just that.

My problem with IB was that Brad Pitt's team didn't really accomplish anything other than rescuing Waltz's character from a fiery death. They could have just stayed home and Hitler and his buddies would still have burned.


So... you need a movie where the hero gets the bad guy?

I like stories where the protagonists actually move the story forward. In this case they didn't. All of the Basterds that died did so for no reason. I simply find it frustrating. YMMV.

I believe it is, plus IMDB lists him in the credits for "Django Unchained".
 
2012-06-07 06:02:15 AM  

DrowningLessons: I think there's a danger in referential art where the product becomes the reference. Family Guy and Community were both reference fests, but at a point in both of those shows their primary source of reference was their own show, and if you ask me that's when it started to suck. I like Tarantino all the way up through Kill Bill, but with Bastards I thought he was doing this, and I'm afraid that apart from the western themes of his he'll be doing the same thing. I hope not, but I've heard things similar to what you just said.


I agree with you on the Community and Family Guy points (with Community being the most disheartening because I otherwise like the show. fark Family Guy.), but I don't really see QT films as being anywhere on par with that kind of lazy writing. I think Tarantino is obviously working off of broad, established genres and tropes, but he generally makes his films his own by having their own distinct feel and mixing in elements of other genres.

besides, Kill Bill 2 was arguably his spaghetti western film.

hubiestubert: To be fair, I did like his intro to Django Sukiyaki...


That movie was a festering pile.

I also didn't care for inglorious basterds or whatever it was, but I went in expecting a funny nazi killing movie and got a pretty serious dramatic tension movie. I think if I hadn't wanted to watch it to see 'funny ways to kill nazis' I might not have been so turned off. Maybe need to give it another go. But usually I'm not particularly interested in dramatic tension for its own sake, which seemed to be the movies core.

What has he done since kill bill? Grind house and IB? Aside from KB and PF I can't think of any of his films off hand that I liked or hated but I have a positive mental association for him. Probably mostly due to KB. I really liked those two.

There any other similar western takes on old Japanese samurai movies that aren't shiat?

2012-06-07 11:30:42 AM  
For all you people saying Tarantino is ripping off Spaghetti westerns, you do know that Spaghetti westerns ripped off samurai movies, right? Sergio Leone got sued and lost over Fistful of Dollars because it directly rips off Kurosawa's awesome film Yojimbo. Magnificent Seven is also a direct rip-off of Kurosawa's Seven Samurai.
 
2012-06-07 11:41:47 AM  

Dwight_Yeast: Bubblegum Tate: part of me still wishes Tarantino got his top choice of Will Smith to play Django

1) Smith like a lot of action stars (I'm looking at you, Tom Cruise) is overly-concerned about his image and box office. You'll never see him in an R-rated film.

2) Honestly, Smith's a one-dimensional actor. Jamies Foxx (for all the shiatty roles he's played) is the better actor.

Agreed. It's not Leone Awesome Level, but that's a pretty high bar.
The 'sequels' aren't very good.

Yeah, once in a great while, Cruise is smart enough to do something like that or Collateral (or even Magnolia) to give himself some cred, but they're getting fewer and further apart. Aside from the obvious Oscar-bait Ali, what has Smith done to prove that he's a serious actor?

You have asked an excellent question.

This film is named Django because Taratino is doing a misdirection gambit,IMO.

This movie does not have much to do with the original Django.

The film does have a lot to do with Mandingo, Drum and Goodbye Uncle Tom.

However, Qt is savvy enough to know that he can get his picture made quietly without protest from blacks,etc, if he names it Django and not what the movie truly is, which is Mandingo Part 2.

That is also why QT did not feature Samuel Jackson(who QT has named the House N----r in his script) or Kerry Washington(her character is raped 3 times and often nude in the film) in his preview at Cannes or his trailer. Their depictions in the script are controversial so QT has focused on Django and the white savior dentist character instead in his preview footage. He has even omitted the word Mandingo in his released plot synopsis or in his footage but it was all over the script and is in fact a subplot.

QT is very cunning but the more that comes out about his film, the more people will get wise to what it really is about and QT will be facing some negative publicity come Christmas day. Of course, he will also be laughing all the way to the bank.

And I say that as someone who has read the original script and has been posting here off and on criticising this film for months.
==========================================
are you fking kidding me???!!!!
Kerry 'Always Cast As The Raped Black Chick Needing Rescue By A White Protector' Washington, raped (again) and nude (again)? What happened to having a strong black female character who isn't victimized? The Morgan Freeman to his Clint Eastwood, Sam Jackson, is The House N*qq*r???

White Savior? Is that for real?

What exactly is in this movie for me? I avoided Avatar on the big screen while everyone and thier mother treated it like the cool version of Twilight. I'm avoiding this exploitative 'n*qq*rs are cool but only as one-dimensional projections for wannabe hip whites' crap as well. If none of this shiat is in the script, then please excuse and forgive my reluctance to applaud this shiat, my reluctance to look forward to seeing it, and my revulsion at the utter glee folks seem to have towards this movie from the trailer and (worse) from the script.

What *is* in the script? Please put me at peace.

QT is the only person on the planet who could send Sam Jackson a script and ask him to play "The House N*gger" without being brutally beaten.

Better than that, he's the only one who could actually get Jackson to do it.

She's an icon, yes. But Quentin Tarantino's obsessions are not respectful, it never gets above fetishizing. He's not working through a prior pain in the repeated bullshiat, to make sense of it. He thinks that's all there is.

Tellingthem: Mugato: DrowningLessons: You know I've never really accused Tarantino of actually stealing or leeching

Never saw City on Fire then?

I don't care how many films he rips off, Pulp Fiction is a great film and as far as I know, fairly original.

He is one of the few artists i give a full waiver on material theft. It always seems that he does it out of appreciation and love versus laziness or greed. And he also make great movies doing that. I view it almost as a greatest hits collection. He takes the best bits from various movies/genres and uses them in his own. And he is constantly giving actors he loves prominent roles in his movies and in some cases resurrects their careers.



I actually think he's great at "scenes" but terrible at "movies"
Aside from RD, if he's not using someone else's story I think his movies are horrible. I literally screamed at the screen during Kill Bill the padding was so horrible and the genre continuity was completely broken. Scenes are ok, put them toghther and pad them and Yech!.

Of course the majority of the QT population are "can do no wrong" fanboys so,.. tilting at windmills I suppose.

Yes, people who disagree with you or have different opinions are just fanboys who can't think critically.

Good job. Good effort.

hatelabs: Of course the majority of the QT population are "can do no wrong" fanboys so,.. tilting at windmills I suppose.


I think the real problem when trying to converse in any kind of intellectual exchange about QT you have people playing Devil's advocate on both sides. You got the people who will jump at any chance to slander QT's name just to piss off fanboys and then you got the film nerds who will defend QT just for the sake of forcing the other to justify the ridiculous slander. Basically it just turns into a discussion about being right and not so much about QT or his films at all. That's just in my personal experience. In the end when you're talking about movies 85% of the discussion is going to be purely opinion which has no right or wrong basis anyway.
