The fabulous thing about that scene for me is that right in the middle of the smashing, the Hulk pauses very briefly and looks at Loki's broken body as if to say "this puny thing is a God?!" Then immediately smashes him a few more times.

/Yes, I've seen The Avengers often enough to notice this.
//Yes, I'm over 21.
///Yes, I have a full-time job.

I know it's cool and hip to say that movie was good, but it wasn't. If I wanted to see black people killing white people with impunity, I'd move to a big city.

Hmmm, that must be a different film. Because the Django I saw had a white and black team of state sanctioned bounty hunters going after criminals and sick fark slavers. I know. "innocent white folk" in your book. You were probably annoyed that some Jews killed poor ol' Hitler in "Inglorious Basterds", too.

If that's how you interpreted it, then yes, I'd agree, we definitely saw two different films.

Apparently you saw a film that featured a righteous superhero that traveled the countryside righting injustice.  I saw a racist murderer that got off on killing people of a certain ethnicity.  Frankly, if I'd wanted to see a movie like that, I'd have rented a documentary about Auschwitz.

You might want to consult with a psychologist, because your perception of reality is quite distorted.


Nah, he just thinks it's cool to come off as an Internet Tough Guy with a racist streak. I'm sure his mommy thinks he's very cool.


I think one day, when you're a little bit older/wiser, you'll see that you're actually the one being a bit racist.  Of course, most people see the pleasure of murdering one particular race as racist at any age, but I'm sure you'll see that too eventually.

And as far as my perception of reality goes, tell me where I'm off?  Didn't D'Jango look forward to killing white people?  When asked if he wanted to be a bounty hunter, didn't he reply with something along the lines of "I get to kill white people and get paid for it?  Sign me up"?

Take a look in the mirror before calling other people out.  Be careful though, you just might not like what you see.

This is getting pathetic, Name the people he killed in that movie for reasons other than revenge, bounty, or that he was being attacked by them.

Good that you saw the trailer instead of the movie, thus your knowledge of one line.

SPOILER ALERTS:

Otherwise, you'd know that everyone Django and Shultz kill is asking for it. Either a dead or alive warrant is out on them, or you see them exhibit unbelievable amounts of cruelty, i.e. whipping people, forcing them to fight to the death, or having dogs tear them to pieces.

It is a revenge movie. Django is using his bounty hunting gigs to get access to the man who has enslaved his wife and has a hardon for inflicting horrible suffering on people that aren't legally allowed to fight back.

Besides, wouldn't you look forward to killing the people that took you from your wife and arranged for your wife to be in the captivity of an abusive pimp who bullwhips her and locks her into a hotbox for days at a time?

But, hey, I get it. The scary black man scared you with his scary black things. It's okay, PeeWee. It's just a movie.

Who said the "white folk" in that movie were kind or good hearted?  I sure didn't.  I just said that anytime someone seeks to kill a certain race of people, regardless of their justification, it's racism.  I'm sure Hitler had plenty of "reasons" why it was okay to kill the Jews, and those reasons probably sounded just as rational to him as D'Jango's reasons seem to you (revenge, anger, distrust).  In both cases however, the real underlying reasons for their actions was racism.

But like I said before, get out, meet new people (even those that don't look like you) and I think you'll see that most people don't fit the stereotypes that you've imagined they would.

I'll just leave this for you since you can't seem to comprehend how racist D'Jango actually was:

King Schultz:  "How do you like the bounty-hunting business?"
D'Jango:  "Kill white people and get paid for it? What's not to like?"

I'm not sure it gets any simpler than that.  Now, if you STILL don't understand how racist that comment was, just imagine if a white person had said that about black people.

Done.

Oh, and one last thing.  If you want me to name a white person that D'Jango killed that wasn't for revenge, bounty or that he was being attacked by that's easy: (Spoiler Alert)  Leonardo DiCaprio's sister.  He just blew her away and she had never done anything even remotely rude/disrespectful to anyone.

What other people would he have wanted to kill? Other slaves? Indians? People that were not wanted abd had nothing to do with his predicament or the predicament his wife was in?

Also, He didn't just kill people of a certain race. Plus, how do you know all the bounties were out for white people? Do you really think a one minute montage encapsulates an entire winter of hunting?

This was not mentioned as Lara's idea in the movie but as Samuel Jackson's.  She was just murdered in cold blood (in a fairly spectacular manner by the way) by D'Jango.

Also, I'd suggest actually seeing a movie first before you contribute your 2 cents about a person's opinion of a film.  Because when you begin to call in to question someone's reading comprehension or intimate that they are using the "I'm rubber you're glue" axiom about a subject you know nothing about...well, you begin to almost look as foolish as Stoli n Coke.  Almost.

Hitler's Final Solution is just like a slave wanting to get revenge on the people who enslaved him? It's like Godwin's Law and Poe's Law are shooting proton packs, and they accidentally crossed the streams . . .

Samuel Jackson's character was a slave. The head slave, but still a slave. He had no authority to arrange that kind of deal without Lara's say-so, seeing as how she was the only person left alive with any claim to the plantation.

Think about it. The guy who was about to cut Django up was a paid employee of the plantation. Do you really think he'd have taken an order from a slave to back off unless that order came from someone higher up the lader?

No. The sister signed off on it.

ZeroCorpse: TDKR was dull. Just... Dull. How can you take a great Batman story like Knightfall and turn it into a dull, plodding, self-absorbed movie like this? Bane is nothing like the source character (they might as well have given him a new name) and Catwoman, while not guilty of making groan-worthy puns as usually seen on film, was as much a sadsack as everyone else. Talia's appearance was less of a twist and more of a deus ex, and Bruce was just annoying as hell from start to finish.

Compare that to the animated The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 and you'll see what I mean. Why is it that Warner Bros. animation can get DC characters so RIGHT while WB live-action always makes them sad, whiny, BORING and sanctimonious? Young Justice rocks. Pretty much every Batman animated feature rocks. Even the Superman animated features beat the shiat out of live-action stuff! If you haven't seen Superman vs. The Elite, you should check it out.

Meanwhile, The Avengers was fun! It was a dumb movie, sure, but it was a rollercoaster ride, not a long tunnel of self-introspection and deep psychological investigation. I enjoyed Avengers because it didn't try to be more than it is. Superheroes, by definition, are ridiculous. Why try to Nolanize them and make them 'serious' to the point of removing all the fun from it?

I have my gripes with Whedon, but he handled Avengers perfectly. Frankly, I think it's a shame he can't have a crack at a Marvel Studios version of Spider-Man, and from me (major Spidey fan) that's high praise for his directing talents.

Actually, if Marvel develops Starfox as a character (no, not the stupid Nintendo anthropomorphic fox, either) I'd like to see what Whedon does with him. He'd also be awesome at a She-Hulk movie, I think.



As for Nolan, I like him. Some of his movies are among my favorites, but his Batman was dull as dried beans, and I would like to see him stay away from superheroes from now on.

I just really don't get why Timm and Dini can't have a crack at a live action Batman.


I apologize from fawning over Timm and Dining so much on fark, but I really wish they'd be allowed a crack at ANY DC hero movie. I grew up a Marvel fan but started getting pulled into DC through them. Their biggest strengths are distilling down the core of characters and giving minor characters some respect. Jlu got me reading tons of minor character comics.

Point is, they can take characters with crazy back stories, multiple interpretations and long histories and make them accessible. I bet 90% of the pitch for the Jonah hex movie was showing the batman episode then following up with "wouldn't this be totally awesome and totally not a poor man's wild wild west?"

When are you knuckleheads going to get it through your skulls that this is not an appropriate blanket "test" for racism? Racism is a complex cultural issue, not a coin with two sides. I get that you have a vested interest in misunderstanding the subject; it allows you to oversimplify and try to pretend that racism doesn't exist. I get that you think it's unfair that "those people" have a "card they can play" whenever you do or say something that you think is fine, but everyone else with a brain in their head finds unacceptable. I get that you have serious limitations when it comes to empathy. But for fark's sake.... if you're smart enough to turn on your computer, navigate the web, and bang words out on a keyboard, you should be smart enough to understand that racism isn't a "game" you can "win" by painting yourself as a victim.

If you are white, male, and American, you are not, and never have been an oppressed minority. You were born into your culture with numerous overwhelming advantages. Quit your farking whining. You look like a fool.

And I didn't see Django, but if you're empathizing with white slave owners in the movie, or with the Nazis in Inglorious Basterds for that matter, there's something seriously wrong with you.

SirDigbyChickenCaesar: Soulcatcher: Urban is steadily growing on me. LOTR was the first time I really noticed him and I was somewhat underwhelmed by his Eomer (who seemed to only have one expression throughout all three films- "I'm very concerned").

I absolutely loved him as Bones in the new Star Trek, and last week I saw the film Red for the first time and he was excellent in that. I enjoyed that movie much more than I thought I would (mostly because I adore Helen Mirren and John Malkovich).

He is one of those guys that is just good at whatever they ask him to do. Love or hate the movies you can't say he wasn't good in The Chronicles of Riddick, Doom, and Priest.


Urban seems to be one of the few younger actors around that can actually act, and not just look pretty/badass or crack jokes on the screen. He's got to scowl a little less, though, imho.

Urban is not young (he's 41). I remember when he playing Cupid on Hercules back in the day.

Z-clipped: 8 inches: I'm not sure it gets any simpler than that. Now, if you STILL don't understand how racist that comment was, just imagine if a white person had said that about black people.

Irrelevant. Your reasoning is puerile, regardless of your conclusion. The problem with you calling the film racist isn't whether or not it's racist... it's that you seem to have a petulant 10-year-old's understanding of what racism is.

Note: I just read some reviews, and it's apparently another Tarantino genre piece, mixing blaxploitation with spaghetti western. I don't even need to see this film to know that you don't understand it. Read this, and then watch this. If you still think Tarantino is a racist, please drown yourself in the bathtub because you're endangering the lives of others by walking around and speaking.
