4seasons85!: Am I the only one who didn't enjoy the film? It was way too long!


And not even a laugh track! And where was Ray Romano, or at least Jim Belushi?

skinink: The All-Powerful Atheismo: Didn't want to see this one because I do not like jamie foxx.

Then I guess you really wouldn't have liked the scene where they showed Django's massive cock.


Yeah, I thought lassoing that steer with it was a bit much.

I love his movies and I still want to punch him in the face. It's that kind of face.

I'm still not thinking about the plot. And yes, it was a fun movie.

Mugato: Smeggy Smurf: Kill Whitey movies always do good when racism is encouraged

It's a movie about slave owners in the south. What do you want a "kill chinamen" movie?


No, I want them docked a half day's pay for sleeping on the job though

calbert: Nadie_AZ: /can't see out of these holes

that scene did not belong in the final cut. it removed you from the story and it just felt forced and unfunny.

also some of the music choices were extremely detracting.

I know he's not making a documentary or a 'period piece' per se, but there are elements of time spent on authenticity, and then you just throw all of that out the window with a Jim Croce song.


Low budget westerns of the 60s and 70s didn't spend much time on accuracy. Several, including Django, used dynamite at a time when dynamite hadn't been invented yet. And there's always the inevitable 15 shots fired from a Colt revolver without the hero ever reloading.

Others, most notably Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, used modern music throughout. Hell, that movie's score was almost entirely Bob Dylan songs.

Given that Django was a modern take on that kind of genre picture, I wasn't nearly as bothered by those things as you were.

Most historically accurate Western I ever saw was Heaven's Gate, and that was a pretentious, overlong, self-indulgent pile of donkey shiat.

His next film will be about a troubled New York City teen in 1977 Brooklyn from a dysfunctional family who deals with his problems by embracing the disco lifestyle. An artist has to grow, you know.

quizzical: Django's character just didn't have enough lines for a movie that was supposed to be about him. It seemed like Django didn't say more than two or three sentences at a time


That's your quintessential spaghetti anti-hero! He never says much, has a mysterious past, walks into town on a lone horse, rights the wrongs and leaves without a word. What did you expect him to do, spit out philosophical injustice like Martin Luther King?

BokChoy: Haven't seen the film but I can guess that, being a tarantino film, it will have long stretches of tangential dialogue between two characters, intercut with some ultra-violence and 70s blaxploitation or spaghetti western soundtracks, while the plot wanders to nowhere in particular.


you say that like it's a bad thing.

What a fun movie. I love revenge movies and Westerns.

Also, SLJ playing the sinister, hateful house negro that really runs the plantation was the best performance that I have seen from him maybe ever. He was fantastic to the point that I thought he deserved a Best Supporting Actor nomination.

LegacyDL: I can understand why the plot makes no sense, but still it's not like I came and was expecting


It's not a spaghetti western, it's a myth cycle (it slaps you over the head with that fact) and it makes as much sense as most myths.  It's actually a really good mythic hero tale, full of blood, bravado, impossible escapes and (possibly) incest so once the mythic hero motif was established it was easy enough to forgive the plot holes.

it was kind of a mess, an enjoyable mess with great performances, but still messy.

I chalk this up to the passing of Sally Menke.

it makes you appreciate the extraordinary job she has done on his other films.


Because you're a film editing expert. Got it. Gotcha.
