I haven't been paying much attention to this upcoming film from Quentin Tarantino, but lately I've been seeing more and more shots from the set and have started becoming interested.  a trailer is supposed to be attached to Prometheus, and it's due Christmas Day.

Quote
Django Unchained is set in the Deep South, and follows Django (Foxx), a freed slave who treks across America with Dr. King Schultz (Waltz), a German dentist turned bounty hunter. Together, they try to retrieve Django's wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) from the charming but sadistic Francophile plantation owner Calvin Candie (DiCaprio) and his band of ruthless slavers.

I'm hoping this won't turn out like Inglorious Basterds, which looked to be a promising action film from the trailer but ended up being fairly light on action.

Anticipated as always from Q.

That shot of blood on the cotton is pretty awesome.

The trailer before Prometheus was (imho) both tremendous and tremendously confusing. Seemed like some sort of hybrid of Inglorious Basterds and any classic western you choose to name, and perhaps some 1970s movies. I love some of Tarantino's stuff, and then some of his films I just don't "get." Will be interesting to see which category this falls under...

Hmmmm... Tarantino announced that DC Comics will be publishing a 5 issue miniseries for the movie, and it would be filling in stuff that he couldn't get into the film.  I wonder if it will focus on Nero's Django's backstory a bit biggrin

Looks like this film is not for Spike Lee


Quote
"I can't speak on it 'cause I'm not gonna see it," he told Vibe Magazine, when asked about Django. "All I'm going to say is that it's disrespectful to my ancestors. That's just me... I'm not speaking on behalf of anybody else."

Later, Lee continued to criticize the film's take on the subject matter, which alternates between the brutal, including depictions of torture and whippings, and the comic, highlighted by much of the dialogue assigned to Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio.
"American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western.It Was A Holocaust.My Ancestors Are Slaves. Stolen From Africa. I Will Honor Them," Lee wrote, which he then followed with responses to fans both critical and supportive of his stance.

After a fan wrote that Django was just a film and not to be taken seriously, Lee responded, "Wrong.Birth Of A Nation Got Black Folks Lynced [sic]. Media Is Powerful. DON'T SLEEP. WAKE UP YO."

Lee has long been a critic of Tarantino, whose films often deal with race in controversial ways. Following the release of Tarantino's 1997 blacksploitation tribute, Jackie Brown, Lee said, “I have a definite problem with Quentin Tarantino’s excessive use of the n-word. And let the record state that I never said that he cannot use that word -- I’ve used that word in many of my films -- but I think something is wrong with him."

I saw it today and I really enjoyed it. Waltz and Foxx worked great off of each other and the whole film was packed with excellent actors. It was over the top and did veer occasionally between comic brutality and more chilling views of violence and slavery, but overall I think it was fairly consistent with its exaggerated tone.

Spike has been a outspoken critic of Quentin Taratino since Pulp Fiction and honestly, I'm "meh" about his opinion.   I'll be seeing Django Unchained sometime this week and I can only hope he starts working on the next installment of the Bride's story soon

Well, if you read halfway down this article, you'll see that it's not looking so good for Kill Bill 3.

My wife and I caught this today. We are total whores for Tarantino movies. We both agreed that it was great, but not among our favorites by him. So I would say it's quite a bit better than Jackie Brown, but after that I am not sure where I would rank it among his movies. Thumbs up, however.

Saw this last night and loved it.  It is probably my favorite Tarantino film now.  Most of the scenes were very well done and at times I was laughing my ass off at it.  Lots of big name actors in it with small part.  Would be interested to see if he ever releases the 5 hour cut that is supposed to exist some time.

All right, so what do people think of the depiction of race in the film? I'm not talking Spike Lee's obviously messed-up view, what do you think?

My only complaint was that Django didn't have much agency during the first half of the film.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Schultz taught him to fight, to shoot, to read, etc. It was like the "magical Negro" but in reverse. Sure, he was a "natural," but Django and most of the slaves only did anything at the beginning because a white man rode in. I'm not sure how comfortable I am with that.

Having said that, I absolutely loved it.

I actually prefer that to the "oh look, I magically know how to do all these things myself even though I've lived as a slave all my life!"  Anything else would have felt fake and Hollywoodized in my opinion.

I went to see this Sunday just gone(I was sick as a dog-still am-,shivering and could hardly hear a thing due to ears being blocked with headcold)

I thought Christoph Waltz was again brilliant,good film ..for me i think it was on par with Inglorious Basterds,whereas i liked the film but probably not as good as his earlier movies

what could of been....an thankfully wasn't

Will Smith explains why he turned down Django

Although his reasons are a little bizarre

Quote
When Django Unchained was in the planning stages, a number of quality actors were linked to the title role. One of those was Will Smith, who for a while seemed the running favourite to play Django. Eventually though, it was Jamie Foxx that snagged the part in Quentin Tarantino's Oscar-winning movie, and Will Smith has now revealed why he turned the job down.

Talking to EW, he said that “Django wasn't the lead, so I was like, I need to be the lead. The other character was the lead! I was like 'No, Quentin, please, I need to kill the bad guy!”

whatever

There's a similar story about an actor's ego for Tim Burton's Edward Scissorhands.  Apparently the studios pushed for Tom Cruise, but Cruise took one look at the makeup Burton wanted for the character and told them he wouldn't do it unless they made him more handsome.  Burton then turned to Johnny Depp after the studio mentioned him as a possibility (he was an up and coming young star back then).  When shown the makeup, Depp supposedly asked them if they could add more (including the numerous cuts on the face that make sense for such a character).

Considering that Tom Cruise got pretty grungy for Born on the Fourth of July, which came out a year prior), I don't know if I buy that.

It could be just a hollywood fable.  Cruise was up for the role first and dropped out, that much is true.
