Here's some drift... didn't see it (Django) but did see Le Mis... my girlfriend insisted... thought I'd be bored but absolutely loved it! When Ann Hathaway sang that song I was blown away! I know pathetic romanticism, silly sentimentalism... don't care, what a stirring, sublime experience that movie was even though Hugh sounded just a bit like one of the Gibbs brothers, still, I highly recommend it!

I'm with RJ, only I saw the trailer and knew enough to stay away.
Maybe Tarantino needs to do a film on the 'Death Slabs' for gratuitous violence.

Django is Tarantino at his unforgettable BEST "...Basterds" was the mere warmup to "Django..." imho

QT makes Hollywood hit movies that are fiendishly driven by dialogue, and I was hanging on every word of tarantino's script...suspense, lurking danger, intense feelings of dread, loads of dark humor...they just keep flooding at you


other directors portraying US slavery would have BORED the shitt out of everybody; QT sends the message in a sly, multi-dimensional version of the spaghetti western, with gallons of intentionally fake-looking karo syrup blood...mainly to hold your attention steady as he very carefully characterizes that evil institution


sharp, campy, clever, horrific, tragic...and one badasss tale of EPIC REVENGE!!!

Saw Django and Zero Dark Thirty on consecutive nights, Zero is waaaay better

Django's only good when Samuel L's on screen

I thought Lincoln had the lock on Best Picture, but after Zero, not so sure

Gun nuts might not dig Zero too much - after seeing what those attack heli's did to Bin Laden's compound, they might not feel the same about stockpiling guns to use against the gov't haha

Tarantino movies have been awful since Kill Bill. Django was terrible. I will not be visiting the theater again for a Tarantino movie. Jamie Foxx was good, but the rest was largely bad. His overly gory/kung fu movie/blaxploitation movie formula seems universal to whatever type of movie he makes. It worked in jackie brown and kill bill, but not again since in my opinion. i want my ten bucks back.

I would also like to know how folks feel about his using the n word in the script eleventy billion times. That and the whole movie felt like a huge insult to my intelligence and sense of humor.

I walked out of the theater alongside a black couple and they were grinning ear-to-ear...

Tarantino has sucked since Pulp Fiction. Kill Bill was overly gratuitous sword slinging, turned it off. Was dragged to Basterds, meh. Why would I want to watch baseball bat skull crushing? Sorry, too much sickness. Will not see Django based on reviews of more overly gratuitous violence. Tarantino seems to think he's too cool for school, but he's really not that creative.

"GOD FORBID A MOVIE HAS VIOLENCE AND USE OF THE "N" WORD"

Thank you! it takes places in the 1850's people used that word copiously all the way to the 1980's...hell there are still plenty of racists in America and I guarantee they still use that word.

And over the top...lest we forget the rape scene in Pulp Fiction or the Ear Scene in Reservoir Dogs...or From Dusk Till Dawn, I mean vampires killing bank robbers and vica versa. Django is my favorite of the Tarantino's.

Just checking - after seeing this violent movie does anyone have an urge to shoot up a room full of people? :)
