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.

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.

This was the best movie I've ever seen.


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

"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? :)

Do Samuel Jackson and Jamie Fox strike you as weak white-wannabes who are hurtin for work so bad that they couldn't turn down a script & plot that insults their race?

When I lived in Chicago as a kid we lived in a very poor neighborhood.

The school I went to was over 90% black.

Every other word we said was nigger this nigger that and it meant nothing since all my friends were black.

Only stupid Americans who never lived in such an environment cry about the word.

It's not the word itself but how it's used in it's context according to exact moment in time and circumstance.

Since most Americans are stupid (:-) they get all bent out of shape over this word and make this huge blanket generalization about it.

Go live in the ghetto and learn something stupid Americans ..... :-)

Steve and I were at Alabama Hills when they were filming. Movie Flats Rd. was closed, but we like the climbing across the street just as well. Some climber guys that we met were climbing in Tall Wall area, and got bribed out of their shots by dinner in the gourmet food trailer. Missed out on that one! We did not see any movie stars.
