    That whole scene with the Aussies went on a bit too long. It was the point were the film really started to feel its length for me. Everything could have easily been wrapped up nicely during the shoot-out in Candyland..

    The hood scene was definitely my favorite. Just about everyone in the theater was dying of laughter during it.

    • Just got back from seeing this at the theater. Overall I really enjoyed it....8/10


      1. Jackie Brown
      2. Kill Bill, Vol 1
      3. Pulp Fiction
      4. Django Unchained
      5. Inglourious Basterds
      6. Kill Bill, Vol 2
      7. Reservoir Dogs
      8. Death Proof

      Not sure if True Romance counts, but if it does, it would probably take the #3 spot.

      I wonder how pissed off Spike Lee is going to be over Tarantino's next film.

        This sounds like a big ball of fun. He'll probably whine about it again.

        • I wish every review I've read of this movie would actually discuss the film instead of the language.

          Fucking morons apparently didn't understand they were going to watch a Quentin Taratino film.

          • Excellent flick, can't wait to see it again.

            Every Tarantino flick is an event for me and has been since I caught Reservoir Dogs leading up to the release of Pulp Fiction. He's pretty much the only filmmaker that can get my lazy ass to the theatre opening week.

              Great to hear.

              Judging from the trailer, I was afraid he was going to be too campy.

                Definitely campy at times, but very fitting.

                • I absolutely loved nearly every aspect of Django Unchained, the only real negative I can give it is Kerry Washington's portrayal of Broomhilda Von Shaft ( an awesome homage to Shaft) I felt she was a bit too whiny for my tastes...

                  The acting is truly fantastic in this, I love how Tarantino made it Dr. King Schultz' film till Django was able to evolve into the badass we know he will become! Major kudos to Waltz and Foxx for their great performances...

                  The real stars in my opinion are Leonard DiCaprio's Calvin Candie and Samuel L. Jackson's Stephen. They both gave truly inspired performances filled with humor as well as menace.

                  I heard some African American film goers talking about Jackson's Stephen character and stated that they've always loved Jackson in ever film he's been in till now. That made me sad because that's exactly how the role was meant to be played and I guess that went over their heads...

                  Another plus was the sensational soundtrack,Tarantino really knows how to put them together!

                  All in all I'd give it a strong 9/10 and say it's my second favorite Tarantino film ( Pulp Fiction being the first)

                  I'm going back to see it again today....

                  • Got to check this out yesterday.

                    Overall, it was fantastic. If I had a complaint, it would be the disjointed ending. In a way it reminded me of the ending of Return Of The King, where one ending just wasn't good enough, so they added three more endings to it. Just when you thought it was over, it goes on for another twenty minutes.

                    Other than that though, it was pretty much flawless. The acting is stellar, as usual, with Dicaprio, Jackson, and Waltz given the most scene chewing material. The story is great, and QT really flexes his comedic muscles. It's almost as much of a comedy, as it is a bloody revenge flick. The KKK scene, is one of the funniest scenes in any movie I've seen all year. The action is outstanding as well, and one shootout in particular, is an instant classic.

                    That's all I can really say, without going into spoiler territory. If you're a QT fan, it's every bit as good as you'd expect it to be.

                    9/10



                    I also read something pretty cool about the dinner table scene. [SPOILER]Apparently, the blood on Dicaprio's hand is real. He accidentally gashed his hand on something on the table, when he punched it, and they just kept rolling[/SPOILER]

                    Not sure how legit that is, but if so, very cool.

                      Same here, I'll go to opening day because I know I'm going to get a great film out of him. QT and Aronofsky are my opening day musts.

                      That's awesome. [SPOILER]So into his role and the scene that he just used it and kept on rolling....badass.[/SPOILER]


                      I need to go see this again.

                      • I loved how intense the whole "Ben discussion" scene was, DiCaprio was just so menacing! If hurting his hand was truly unintentional then major props go out to Leo as an actor because it sure seemed like it was in the script and he didn't miss a beat, he must've been in the zone big time...

                        If he doesn't win something for his role as Calvin Candie I'd be very surprised...

                        The ending did seem to go on like Tarantino wasn't exactly sure how to end it but once Django arrived at Candyland and finished his vengeance, I was totally satisfied....


                        It ranks up there with my other two favorite Tarantino scenes:


                        Clifford Worley's history lesson to Vincenzo Coccotti in True Romance as well as the bar scene in Inglourious Basterds...

                          Two of my favorite scenes as well. And, the scene with Jules and Ringo at the end of Pulp Fiction.

                            Agreed but there are tons of great scenes in Pulp Fiction, "The Bonnie Situation" always cracks me up!

                              Yeah there are. Hah when they're carrying the body and she walks in, that shit is priceless.

                              • I really want to go see this again, because I had such a blast with it the first time. I think the more I think about it, the more I like it. It's long, but never felt it's length to me. It's just perfect Tarantino.
