This is just getting pathetic. The same trolls go to every negative "Django" topic and just troll everyone that disagrees with them. You morons have no lives. And it REALLY is a terrible movie, that is the best part to all of this. Keep entertaining me, boys.
Aug 15 - 02:46 PM
Again, no need to be an asshole to people who don't the same opinion as you. I don't like Slumdog Millionare. It just didn't work for me. But, I don't just outright say it's horrible and anyone who disagrees is wrong.
Aug 16 - 04:36 PM
Considering that you're in the minority of people who hated it *cough* nominated for Best Picture, won Best Screenplay *cough*, you should shut your mouth, Todd.
Aug 29 - 10:23 PM
What makes it a terrible movie? And give me a reason that's fresh and original, will you? I don't want to hear about the excessive use of the "n" word, the violence, or the Leo/Chris Walz climax.
Aug 31 - 03:16 PM
If you take those reasons out of the equation, you probably won't get a reply.
Sep 2 - 11:24 PM
According to Wendell's Account, He rated this movie 0.5/5. Just Kidding, he rates nothing.

are u serious?
Mar 31 - 03:21 PM
Jamie Fox is a terrible actor, always has been. This movie was doing actually poorly until I was recognized on the movie awards show.. which every one it was I forgot now. Then all of a sudden boom everyone had to see it. The movie really isnt good.
Mar 8 - 02:12 PM
Care to elaborate on why Jamie Foxx is a terrible actor and always has been? Because, you know,...he's not.

Ash J. Gilmore
Have you seen Ray?
Mar 30 - 03:14 AM
I think he's a pretty good actor. It's weird that he was nominated as Best Supporting Actor in Collateral while Tom Cruise was nominated for Best Actor. I thought Jamie Foxx's character was the main character.
Mar 31 - 12:35 AM
Wendell still looks like a pedophile.
Mar 2 - 06:10 AM
oh wendell you changed your picture. still gay !
Mar 1 - 04:06 PM
Or maybe the film was just rated highly because it was so good? It is perfectly acceptable to dislike a film despite overwhelming praise.
Feb 28 - 10:03 AM
I'm frankly shocked at the high ratings. I just watched it and it was a godawful movie. Starts out ok but 2nd half was really terribly stupid and boring.
Feb 23 - 06:40 PM
so that is your key argument? eh im not going to waste more time on you
Feb 23 - 09:23 PM
Very informative, LG. Why should we listen to someone who seemingly punched the keyboard to invent a username? Not creative enough to come up with your own?
Feb 24 - 09:51 AM
I won't lie, that part about punching the keyboard had me laughing for like five minutes.
Feb 24 - 10:29 AM
Lol glad I could help.
Feb 24 - 10:49 AM
You are both so retarded. He's obviously Dutch or Scandinavian and that's his NAME, you morons. It is really not nice to make fun of somebody's name. Hey Alex, five minutes, huh? You know what they say about simple minds and simple pleasures.
Mar 28 - 09:35 PM
Cool story, bro
Apr 1 - 07:58 AM
Feb 24 - 09:06 PM
the second half was the best .
Mar 7 - 10:27 PM
love Wendell's pic, it looks like his gay self, but the only difference is he got the shit kicked out of his ass. hahaha
Feb 20 - 07:50 PM
Is that really a picture of himself? I always thought it was one of those inbreds from The Hills Have Eyes (1977)
Feb 21 - 06:06 AM
no clue man,but great comparison hahaha
Feb 22 - 06:19 PM
Feb 15 - 04:10 PM
Wendell is the prime example of an internet predator.
Feb 13 - 07:34 AM
Chase likes little boys.
Feb 17 - 03:29 PM
I do? Thank you for clearing that up. Never knew that until now. You really are obsessed with throwing out comments pertaining to pedophilia. Are you actually Jerry Sandusky? I didn't know they allowed internet usage in prison.
Feb 18 - 04:24 PM
Hollis is a loser.
Feb 12 - 06:40 PM
there it is again, what a faggot
Feb 17 - 10:02 AM
im about done with this thread and i would love to point out, Wendell hasnt made a single post about this movie for the past month. only shitty personal attacks asking about my genitalia. wendell, you have clearly lost your senses.
Feb 5 - 04:11 PM
One thing that is for certain, Hollis is 100% certified douche.
Jan 27 - 07:27 PM
i think you are in love with me
Feb 2 - 01:20 PM
u two should make LOVE.
Feb 16 - 02:45 PM
oh so you can watch while you touch yourself, no thanks
Feb 17 - 10:01 AM
If it wasn't for the great acting of Waltz and Di Caprio to distract me from the political statement being portrayed I could have sworn there was a political statement in there somewhere?
I thought the movie was dull, was Fox even in it? Samuel L was better, I wanted him dead more than I wanted Fox get his woman back.
Samuel L should have played Django! Played it with the same kind of vengance he had in Pulp Fiction. "And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger". Fox had about as much vengance as Gandi!Tarentino stuffed up casting him as Django!
Jan 26 - 06:46 AM
"Too much racism" ? Some people are either ignorant or skipped History.
Jan 25 - 03:31 AM
Maybe not 100%. Very few movies deserve that. But it deserves at least a 90...
Jan 25 - 03:19 AM
I thought the movie was very good. Entertaining as a ficiticious movie should be.. Do not make an issue where there are none..

What a queer.
Jan 27 - 07:24 PM
oh you finally said something besides douche, and no wendell im not a queer, but still suck my bfc ya bitch
Feb 2 - 01:22 PM
Oh my God. BOTH of you. It amazes me how (apparently) some people just want to use the internet to say "I'm an immature moron" to the whole world. I'll bet that stupid 'floss my teeth' line is older than I am. It's ALMOST as old as "Suck my d@*!" Seriously, both of you should do the next generation a huge favor and get vasectomies.
Mar 28 - 09:22 PM
who invited the faggot again?
Apr 8 - 05:36 PM
There was just too much 'racism'.
Jan 17 - 09:15 AM
Thing with Tarantino is: We all know he likes to write endless dialogue-scenes and most of the time his dialogues are brilliant.
Still, someone has to tell him that once in a while you can CUT OUT of a scene earlier. He's so much in love with his own neverending dialogues... that the movie becomes about 40 minutes too long.
What a great film this would have been if it would have been shorter, with better pacing.
Jan 17 - 08:47 AM
Maybe that´s ´cause americans can´t read. Ignorant stupid people!

Too right, the story was pretty straightforward too XD The dialogue, acting, and visuals were the frosting on top.
Aug 3 - 08:05 PM
hey everyone Wendell came back! YEAH ! its funny that you came back as soon as i insulted you. you must have been looking at your computer for days, i bet you still havent even seen Django. Douche..
Jan 13 - 12:18 PM
I disagree. I think there are plenty of things to like or dislike about the film besides the obvious topics of racism and and abuse.
Jan 1 - 08:47 PM
i liked the movie a lot. i don't want to argue with any one i just wanted to state my opinion.
Jan 1 - 07:35 PM
on new years eve, i,hollis mills, have seen the greatest movie in history. just pure greatness
Dec 31 - 11:31 PM
You liked it better than Inglorious? I don't know that I did. I love them both but I prefer Inglorious.
Jan 13 - 11:20 AM
well i like inglorious basterds but django just kept me going. through the entire 2hrs 46min, i didnt get up to use the restroom once...
Jan 13 - 11:52 AM
Sorry bro but I don't think you ever get it up.
Jan 13 - 12:12 PM
asking about my johnson, thats not straight at all
Jan 13 - 12:19 PM
Tarantino fans always counter criticism of his films with foul-mouthed insults. Why is that?
Dec 31 - 07:53 AM
Because you touch yourself at night
Dec 31 - 07:48 PM
bro it looks like this is your first time on this page GTFO
Dec 31 - 11:30 PM
why are you so angry?
Jan 1 - 11:06 AM
dude you are the one who is talking about dudes touching themselves, just nasty
Jan 1 - 04:18 PM
Because I like to troll

wow, congrats wendell. you will forever be known by everyone on this page as a douche bag. first i try to reason with you, and you completely disregard that and chose to show everybody your doucheness. your argument to this day is still an opinion and really is at the same level with everyone else and their perspective on the movie.
And with that I repeat Y.O.U A.R.E A D.O.U.C.H.E.B.A.G !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh and wendell, you can suck on that.

Love how hollis tells us he's hung up the troll cape and then comes back to do some more.
Jan 1 - 07:57 PM
i guess you still dont know how to read, i said "tonight im hanging up the troll cape" and dont love what me, im still a kid you pedo. watcha got now ?
Jan 1 - 08:17 PM
by the way dont attack someone while there back is turned
Jan 1 - 08:20 PM
i love how wendell never came back, haha we win
Jan 13 - 10:18 AM
Hollis Mills is a douche.
Jan 13 - 12:11 PM
you speak the language of douche, therefore you are a douche
Jan 13 - 12:21 PM
Wendell, why don't you have seat right over there?
Jan 13 - 11:19 AM
Why don't you go suck hollis' needle.
Jan 13 - 12:28 PM
how about you eat some shit squidward
Jan 13 - 12:34 PM
Funny how you go there, Wendell.
Jan 13 - 12:57 PM
Hollis and Chase are queer buddies.
Jan 27 - 07:26 PM
wendell shut the fuck up, this is my thread now. get lost and jump off a cliff
Feb 2 - 01:24 PM
Hey Hollis how can Wendell respond to you if he doesn't know how to read?
Jan 3 - 11:20 AM
well if he can read, he certainly cant read right, just as you cant either
Jan 3 - 11:40 AM
Sorry but I don't speak douche.
Jan 13 - 12:14 PM
wait are you stupid, i said read not speak haha..
Jan 13 - 12:22 PM
When you say you don't speak a language then any smart person would also assume that you can't read said language. What a stupid douche.
Jan 13 - 12:29 PM
i cant speak spanish but i can read it, so quit talking ya stupid douche, this is my thread now
Jan 13 - 12:33 PM
Done talking to hollis cause he's a loser and a douche.
Jan 13 - 12:30 PM
baby back be-otch, baby back be-otch
Lol, Wendell's a penis.
Dec 28 - 06:56 PM
Dec 29 - 09:59 AM
Hollis Mills you said it all. Why do we give these idiots any of our time. Later.........grow a brain.
Dec 28 - 03:42 PM
It's funny that you gave time telling Hollis not to give time. Brilliant!
Dec 29 - 10:01 AM
okay im done. Everyone on this page (including me) has a different view on this movie. Tonight im hanging up the troll cape and saying peace out, because i really dont care anymore. im probably going to see this movie later next week and will for sure come back to this page and tell Mr.Pace what i thought.In conclusion, it will always be a biased argument, not really about racism...okay the movie is racist,but in terms of dialogue not the idea itself. well this is it so long wendell and peace trolls ;)
Dec 27 - 07:40 PM
I'm going to see this movie too so you can suck it.
Dec 29 - 10:02 AM
I think Hollis is just mad that I haven't included him or her in the group that I call Douche.
Dec 27 - 06:52 PM
This comment has been removed.
I wasn't just noticed.
Dec 27 - 06:49 PM
Not afraid, what do you want me to reply to?
Dec 27 - 06:19 PM
........and I repeat. At the time of this post you hadn't even seen the movie yet! That could be why people might think YOU might be a racist....and an idiot.
Dec 27 - 03:32 PM
I repeat...you're a douche.
Dec 27 - 06:23 PM
Amazing. When your little mind can't think of a reason other than racism, why you didn't like the movie even before it come out, you call people name? If I'm a douche it's only because I'm cleaning you out,...idiot.
Dec 27 - 03:30 PM
Dec 27 - 06:20 PM
I didn't say i didn't like it. I said it didn't deserve 100% and I was right it doesn't have a 100% anymore. I think its cool that some critics could be honest about how they felt and not fear any backlash. Course they're getting backlash from everyone that thinks Tarantino poops gold.
Dec 27 - 06:27 PM
This movie did not have one flaw in it. Not one flaw to complain about. The story is 'soul enriching'. The characters are beautifully written. The MUSIC, set, picture, production (QT made it LOOK like an old Western, not making LIKE a Western...it WAS one). The dialogue was purely brilliant. The action scenes were intense. The cast was full of overly talented stars. It's a Western that's a love story...with slavery being a background in the story, not the main focus. Everything is spiced perfectly. I'm one of the few people who really understand QT's film making style so it's hard to completely explain it. I know you'd consider movies like Shawshank Redemption or Schindler's list or even QT's classic Pulp Fiction better and may call me crazy but I liked Django Unchained better. If you're sensitive about the language and slavery thing, just know that he was trying to let us know how cruel it was...and....look, movie making is an art. Art is anything that is made from creativity. And there is no limit on creativity. If you say someone can't write about something, you're limiting their art which is impossible and quite inhumane if you even try. What a masterpiece. Geniusly put together.
Dec 26 - 10:16 PM
Stop feeding the troll.
Dec 26 - 09:30 PM
The funny thing is I saw this in an mostly black theater in DC and the feeling towards the Sam character, Stephen was more hatred then the white slave owners! Kinda like the black cop in Boys in the Hood everyone hated! Strange!?! And when will the discussion start about the 3 dimples in the skull!?!?
Dec 26 - 08:56 PM
You did a census of the ethnic distribution of the audience members before the film to be able to come to the conclusion that it was a "mostly black theater"? After the film, this same "mostly black" audience waited around so that you could question them on their feelings of the character Stephen vs. the white slave owners? Wow, what theater is this? I would love to go see a movie with those audience members and get their opinions on my snickerdoodle during a movie!
Dec 29 - 04:22 PM
Seem like just a re-warmming of "Basterds", really...ethnic vengance unleashed...I really like QT, but I think this may lack the "newness" which he usually bring to the screen. I like the actors, and will likley eventually check it out, but am going in with lowered expectations. Maybe QT has to get back together with Roger Avary (Pulp Fiction co-writer) to get some "fresh" back in there...
Dec 23 - 09:28 AM
Disliking "Schindler's List" doesn't make you a Nazi, right? So why would this be different? Tarantino does not make movies everyone will like, he just does what he damn well pleases. Whether you like it or not is not a bother to him or the African-American community. So sleep easy knowing that there are non-racists who will be willing to speak their opinion...
Dec 23 - 08:09 AM
I slept easy before but thanks.
Dec 23 - 12:59 PM
Dec 23 - 01:10 PM
and, how the hell would you know that the film doesn't deserve 100% if it hasn't even come out yet? That is pretty crazy assertion.
Dec 22 - 12:56 PM
I just know. Just like I know you're a douche.
Dec 23 - 07:33 AM
It takes one to know one.
Dec 27 - 08:56 PM
It has nothing to do with someone being called racist, and why are YOU so worried about that. Go see the movie. Take it for what it is. Stop putting your expectations on it before you even see it. That would be a more intelligent approach.
Dec 22 - 12:54 PM
Not worried about it at all. I will see it.
Dec 27 - 06:21 PM
Savannah Leigh Jones
Unless you've seen it, you don't know what it deserves. They've seen it, they have more of a right to speak on it than you or I.
And seeing as it's at 91% right now, I'd say your argument is invalid.
Stop trying to start race crap. That stuff gets so annoying.
Dec 21 - 08:19 PM

well its not 100 anymore it is 91
Dec 21 - 05:22 PM
Diego John Tutweiller
I don't get how not liking this movie can be racist... if you want to make comments like that, you should look at the reviews of 'Birth of a Nation'.
Dec 20 - 07:43 PM
You don't get it because you're a douche.
Dec 27 - 06:22 PM
Fucking skinhead asshole...
Mar 9 - 04:52 PM
I don't see how a movie you haven't seen yet doesn't deserve 100%. Wouldn't Glory have suffered the same thing (which includes a scene of Denzel Washington being whipped)? It has 93% and I don't think many people would say that the score is unjustified. Glory is an amazing movie with an amazing cast. Why can't Django Unchained just be a great movie as well? Why are you adding some sort of component to it when it comes to the reviews? Just because it's about slavery should have no bearing on how good or bad it is or how critics review it. Tarantino rarely disappoints in his films to begin with, so this movie receiving a high score is hardly a surprise. I personally love Tarantino movies and will be in line for this on Christmas. Your assumption about how it will be reviewed seems unfounded as there are plenty of other movies chronicling dark times in history that have been panned.
Dec 20 - 05:45 PM
Well, it's not at 100% anymore so thankfully you were incorrect.
Dec 20 - 02:32 PM
This has to be the stupidest thing I've ever read.

I HOPE THAT FAGGOT CRITIC WHO GAVE A NEGATIVE REVIEW AND RUINED THE 100 PERCENT SCORE GETS ASS RAPED BY A SILVER BACK GORILLA AND THEN DIES OF AIDS.

Dec 19 - 01:14 PM
Dec 20 - 06:37 AM
Hey Wendell...can you explain to me why Red Tails only got a 37% rating? Why weren't the critics afraid of looking racist on that one?
Dec 19 - 08:28 AM
Red Tails got a 37% because they average the critics scores and it came to 37%. I don't know about the racism part of that movie. I'm talking about Django Unchained. Read the post.
Dec 19 - 09:28 AM
Maybe you should explain the Redtails thing to me, I have no clue what that movie is.
Dec 19 - 09:29 AM
it's mostly an all black cast playing fighter pilots during world war 2 and the racism they faced during the war....produced by George Lucas and you know nothing about it?....sure
Dec 19 - 01:11 PM
Actually I know what its about, it's mostly an all black cast playing fighter pilots during world war 2 and the racism they faced during the war...produced by George Lucas
Dec 19 - 09:36 PM
Yeah, because it's impossible to not know every single movie that comes out each year.
Dec 20 - 02:34 PM
Inglorious Basterds hade detractors and none of them were lambasted for being anti-semites.
Dec 18 - 11:29 PM
Dumbest post ever. Even dumber then Armond White's reviews. Film is set in 1853 and about slavery. You think times were different back then?
Dec 18 - 11:08 PM
I don't think anyone posted on the internet back then.
But one thing is certain you're a douche.
Dec 19 - 09:33 AM
Well, if that ain't the skank calling the whore a slut I don't know what is.
Dec 19 - 05:30 PM
You're funny and you're a douche.
Douche! It's The Word Of The Day! YAY!!!! Honestly, I'm reading all the post in this forum and instead of creating a counter argument you simply just call people a douche. I can understand the people who just posted stupid names but the Red Tails comment and this one *sort of* are good counter arguements. This is a period piece and period pieces, even films about slavery *glory* have people who will refute it.
Dec 20 - 05:08 PM
I'd argue with you but you're a douche.
Dec 22 - 07:52 AM
NO movie deserves 100%. EVERY movie has some sort of flaw, whether it be sprinkled with minor ones, or possess significant one located somewhere in the beginning, middle, or end.
Dec 18 - 09:16 PM
Dr strangelove deserves 100 :P imo
Dec 18 - 09:31 PM
i'll look into it :) what i REALLY mean to say is that no movie is perfect. 100% merely means that 10/10 critics thought it was from adequate to great.
Dec 19 - 12:12 AM
Pulp Fiction deserves 100% :P
Dec 19 - 02:37 AM
That's total bullshit. Everyone considers one or two movies perfect. It doesn't matter whether its critically accepted or not. All of Quentin Tarantino's movies are perfect for me. The LOTR are perfect form me. That's what I give a shit about and really the only thing that matters.
Dec 19 - 06:29 AM
Movies can be imperfect and still get a perfect score. 100% doesn't represent the actual quality of a film, just a percentage of critics who liked it. And lots of movies were liked by every major critic who reviewed it. So yes, several movies deserve 100%.
Dec 19 - 12:13 AM
Did you not read my 2nd comment? Your post is exactly what I said.
Dec 19 - 01:04 AM
Your comment was posted a minute before mine. No way I could've seen it.
Dec 21 - 03:19 AM
Dec 18 - 04:22 PM
what the fuck?
Dec 18 - 03:23 PM
You have not seen the movie. You are incorrect, sir.
Dec 18 - 12:22 PM
Wendall, I love ya buddy, but ya blew it.
Dec 18 - 10:56 AM
I love you too...ya douche.
You're a dingus.
Dec 19 - 05:01 PM
if so then soul plane would also be at 100 percent
Dec 18 - 10:36 AM
Dec 19 - 08:23 AM
Lol i thought we were past that racist crap these days .It s getting 100 because it s that good , is it that hard to believe , Critic just have to like it, not love it to death for the movie to get 100 % fresh tomatoes .
Dec 18 - 08:58 AM
Its actually not getting 100% now.
Dec 19 - 09:30 AM
I think it's a little lucky that it has a 100. Most of the reviewers find minor flaws. His other recent movies ended up with mid to high 80's. Not too many are calling it better than his last work but maybe it's more likable. I think it could and up in high 80's to very low 90's.
Dec 18 - 07:59 AM
Shut up Wendell
Dec 18 - 06:24 AM
Dec 18 - 08:53 AM
Dec 18 - 09:20 PM
Why do you have to talk about the Hobbit on a completely different forum?
Dec 17 - 09:37 PM
My favorite Tarantino scenes were where the Nazi questions the Man in the cabin at the beginning of Inglorious Basterds and when the guy who played in Kung Fu talks about Supermans identity in Kill Bill.
Wendell that's the silliest hunch I've ever heard. This isn't 1950 and we're not currently plunged into some race war. Why would you even suggest that?
Dec 17 - 08:13 PM
Because he's an agitator douchebag racist.
Dec 17 - 08:18 PM
I can tell your agitated but I'm not an agitator. Not a racist either. Nothing I've said has any racism in it. I'm just saying critics are worried about being called racist, guess you'll have to tell me whats racist about that.
Dec 17 - 08:43 PM
Inferring white guilt is that much of a driving force is stating that racism still holds power in even trivial matters like this.

Not all of the critics are white. I'm not inferring guilt. I've said nothing about it. You're making words were no words were made.
Dec 18 - 08:55 AM
Anyone worried about appearances in panning a movie about black revenge would be precisely because of the concentrated effect of white guilt on all non-black people. Yes.
But you can keep deluding yourself it isn't

You lost me after the word Anyone.

When you have 73% of black babies born out of wedlock, and 70% of prison inmates born to single mothers, that IS a race war.
Dec 17 - 08:37 PM
Intelligence. Didn't think that still existed on RT. I actually just wrote an essay about single black mothers, and cited that first statistic. :)

I just sayin their afraid to give the movie a bad review because their afraid if they do they will be considered racist. I don't know if they will be considered racist but I'm betting that most critics won't take the chance. I never said it was racist to like or hate the movie I'm just saying that most critics will feel pressure to "like" the movie.
Dec 17 - 06:57 PM
also that doesn't fear of being called rascist doesn't stop republicans and Mitt Romney
Dec 17 - 05:59 PM
You should probably retype that so it makes more sense.
Dec 17 - 07:16 PM
Reading the script front to back this movie shows the way times really were back then and doesn't sugar coat shit. It`s fucken Tarintino, if you don`t want to be entertained stay home and watch Wild Wild West, you idiot.

Dec 17 - 07:14 PM
racist? RACIST? What are you high? This makes no sense? Red Tails, Bebe's Kids, and Pelham 123 remake. What are you? WHAT ARE YOU?

I wouldn't pay 8 cent smuch less $8 to see Jamie Foxx in anything. Maybe his Lord and Savior Barack Obama can buy 10 million tickets.
Dec 17 - 01:35 PM
Its a movie about one black guy murdering every white person in the movie. Of course the critics are going to love it. Its hip to be racist against white people dont'cha know??
Dec 17 - 06:02 AM
It's a good thing to hate plantation owners and people who bought slaves. Quentin doesn't make movies with cardboard cutout antagonists. Some of the Nazi's in inglorious basterds were empathetic and complex, some were not. The point of his revenge movies is to give the audience a cathartic experience, the gross enjoyment we get from watching jewish people kill nazis is part of the fun. It would not be fun to watch a jewish person kill a modern day German person for the hell of it, Nazis are a different story along with plantation owners etc. etc.

Just saw it! It's the beginning of a revolution in Black heroes! Will likely be banned in some places. Slavery seen for what it was, aside from Spielberg's whitewash of Lincoln and his deeply held racism. In fact, the story open during the same year Lincoln publicly proclaimed his racist views, which many today have never known about, nor ever will by Spielberg's film. Here's his words: "I will say, then, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black racesâ??that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this, that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I, as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race."
This film will have a huge hero-starved Black audience. Keeping in mind, President Obama is yet another kind of hero among our leaders. DJango is a hero among the [Black] people. ~ e

Shaft was 30 years ago and he was awesome.
Dec 17 - 07:07 PM
If people were worried about appearing racist just because their are black people in a movie then Tyler Perry might get a decently reviewed movie. That being said calling something "sad" before ever seeing it just makes you sad.
Dec 16 - 03:54 PM
Dec 16 - 10:59 PM
Never said anything about Tyler Perry I'm talking about Django.
You're also talking about fear influencing critics which is the point Larry is making. If it's true for Django, why then not for Tyler Perry movie's. Keep trying to plug leaks in your rickety point though.
Dec 19 - 05:38 PM
I don't think Perry has made any move like Django, you'll have to educate me on which movie Tyler's made that is similar. I also have never seen a Tyler Perry film.
Dec 19 - 09:40 PM
Making comments like this before even seeing the movie? Someone needs to 'rip' you off this site.
Dec 16 - 02:02 PM
Ya'll don't respect the 1st Amendment much.
Dec 18 - 08:59 AM
No we just understand it beyond a 1st grade comprehension level.
Dec 19 - 05:39 PM
People capable of making arguments beyond "You're a douche." Who understand that the 1st Amendment is not a license to say whatever you please free of contradiction or repercussions.
Dec 20 - 06:59 PM
Dec 21 - 07:50 PM
I think most critics respect the job they do and will rate it as they see fit as a cinematic experience............
Dec 16 - 11:49 AM
yes, that is typically how they do it.
Dec 16 - 12:56 PM
Or Tarantino has made his greatest film since Pulp Fiction (which scored 95/100).
If anything, this film may be racist for showing a black man as a trigger happy massacring gunslinger. So critics choosing to love this is more racist than choosing not too (actually, I'm looking too deep into this, it isn't racist at all).
Dec 16 - 11:07 AM
you mr. wendell need to take a long deep look at yourself before you post your next comment on the internet.
Dec 16 - 09:47 AM
I just took a long deep look at myself and realized that you're a douche.
Dec 17 - 06:59 PM
Well, you don't have to worry about it soon. I imagine the Christian Science Monitor will be giving this a big rotten. It gave the first one to Zero Dark Thirty for being too violent with torture.
I don't think Django will be any less violent from the looks of the trailer alone.
Dec 16 - 01:14 AM
"Christian Science Monitor" haha. no wonder.
Dec 16 - 12:55 PM
Wendell, funny but Amistad only has a 76% fresh rating. So much for your theory.
Dec 15 - 08:15 PM
Dec 16 - 09:50 AM
See I told you that you would consider them racist. Case closed.
Dec 17 - 07:00 PM
Dec 15 - 08:10 PM
Not liking a film written and directed by a white guy, you're a racist apparently...
Dec 15 - 03:12 PM
I never said I didn't like it. Reread my first initial comment. It was about critics being afraid to give the movie a bad review. What a bunch of douches.
Dec 17 - 07:09 PM
What's sad is that you think the critics are racist for giving this film good reviews. Has it ever occurred to you that this movie might actually be good.
Dec 15 - 02:32 PM
Dec 15 - 09:55 PM
I don't think their racist for saying they liked the movie. I clearly said that the critics are afraid to knock the movie because of fear of being called a racist.
Dec 17 - 07:01 PM
Because you're implying that a movie about black peopleis inferior to a white movie but everyone is to afraid to say so. You haven't seen the movie, your statements are based in ignorance and the only term for a human being you seem capableof using is "douche". You are so not winning right now.
Dec 21 - 07:54 PM
It's racist that you would even say that...
Dec 14 - 05:56 PM
How is it racist to say that critics are afraid of being called racist?
Dec 17 - 07:02 PM
I have a hunch that you haven't even seen the film. So your opinion is invalid.
Dec 14 - 02:25 PM
Dec 14 - 05:22 PM
don't make sense.
Then you aren't too bright.
Dec 16 - 08:29 PM
I'm going to see it and if I think it blows then I'll tell ya it blows. I liked Inglorious Bastards.
Dec 17 - 07:03 PM
armond white will give it a "rotten review." he's not afraid of being racist, and he usually comes up with some fake argument to hate good things or like bad things. just wait until the next hundred reviews come in, dude. it doesn't sound like you've seen the movie, and you're preemptively accusing all critics of some craziness? i don't remember the 31 critics who didn't like 'inglourious basterds' being put on trial for nazi war crimes...
Dec 14 - 01:10 PM
he's no longer featured on rt.
Dec 16 - 12:54 PM
Ben do you believe its racist to not like this film? I'm not saying that it's racist to not like the film I'm saying that they'll be afraid of being called racist. There is a difference, I guess most on here are too thick to realize the difference.
Dec 18 - 09:03 AM
Sorry I spelled ripe wrong. But what I said is the truth. I'm not prejudice at all. But its funny that chum chum says I am because I say that critics are afraid to give it a lower score because they're afraid of being considered rascists. I'm going to see this flick. But I'm sure it's not worth 100%. We'll see if it drops. Oh and chum chum get over yourself.
Dec 14 - 11:05 AM
Did you miss the part where he said Amistad was at 76%?
Dec 15 - 08:51 PM
I didn't miss it now but it came after this post, look at the time stamps.
Dec 17 - 07:04 PM
i highly doubt they're afraid to seem racist. this movie will drop out of 100%. early great reviews are in. zero dark thirty was at 100% for quite a while, but it dropped out (and it had a higher average than this movie does).
your theory is rather weak.
I think Wendell dosen't like this movie because he's scared if he see's it, it will reveal his hidden prejudices. What a sad little guy
Dec 14 - 07:28 AM
One more thing bro, I'm not little.

How old are you? 3 years old? You sure have ahuge hard on for The Hobbit don't you? You're trolling is so obvious.
Dec 13 - 07:15 PM
Ok, I've gotten used to you trolling The Hobbit for a while, but this is a completely different movie so please, please shut the fuck up about The Hobbit.
Dec 13 - 07:22 PM
That would be great, if this movie gets 100%, i doubt it, but it would be amazing, im really looking forward to this movie.
Dec 13 - 04:56 PM
There's 23 reviews in. Sinister was at 100% for a while before going down to a final score of 62%. Race has nothing to do with it.
Dec 13 - 03:52 PM
Yea but, Sinister had like a 6.8-7/10 average when it was at 100% this has an 8.2... so It'll go down but, not as much as Sinister.
Dec 14 - 06:49 AM
So will the critics who don't give Obama a 100%, which is essentially what they are doing vis-a- vis the perfect Tomatometer rating for "Zero Dark Thirty". And a lot of those same critics trashed "Obama 2016" for the same reason- lockstep journalism uber alles.
Dec 13 - 03:22 PM
did you see Obama 2016 ? it deserved to be trashed.
Dec 16 - 04:15 PM
And you've seen the movie? And what's with the race thing? Sounds like something a actual racist would say.
Dec 13 - 02:51 PM
I'll second that notion.
Dec 13 - 08:43 PM
i concur. he sounds a tad racist.
Dec 16 - 12:51 PM
You need to reread my posts.
Dec 17 - 08:48 PM
Dec 19 - 04:23 PM
If anything Tarentino is one of the best directors of his generation, if anyone would deserve close to 100% it would be him.
Dec 13 - 02:13 PM
He blows as an actor. I've seen him in 3 or four of his movies and he's painful. Almost as painful as M. Night.
you must have no life.
get working on that.
Jan 3 - 11:42 AM
I wouldn't really say putting QT's abillity's as an actor counts in this topic, his acting abilities may be lacking, but in terms of direction/screenwriting I would put Tarantino as one of America's greatest cinematic talents.
Jan 17 - 05:43 AM
Or it's just a really good movie.
Dec 13 - 01:26 PM
Tarantino isn't that great. Pulp Fiction is one of my favorite movies, but his other movies are pretty boring to be honest.
Dec 13 - 01:09 PM
I hope this one drops out of 100%. I guess I just don't see the big deal about Tarantino. I don't mind one for Zero Dark Thirty though, my hype for it is out of this world.
Dec 13 - 12:54 PM
4 out 7 of quentin tarantinos movies are on the top 250 list with pulp fiction at number 4, the big deal about him is he created his own genre, his movies are very unique, now lets see how many of kathryn bigelows movies are on the top 250 list... 0
Dec 13 - 02:20 PM
I never said he made bad movies, I'm just not a fan of Tarantino.
Dec 13 - 04:10 PM
That's about as idiotic as as saying, "I don't see the big deal with Kubrick or Hitchcock" lol. You have no taste dude.
Dec 14 - 02:28 PM
Thank you for respecting my opinion.
Dec 15 - 05:52 AM
I am not going to respect anyone who wishes for a film to get bad reviews. Keep riding that negativity, because it will get you nowhere.
Dec 16 - 09:10 PM
the fact that u put tarantino in the same category as kubrick and hitchcock is nonsense. a lot of people dont like tarantino that much, and for valid reason. i find his films entertaining, but they could never be placed in the company of 2001, a clockwork orange, vertigo or psycho. that u would use those 2 greats as an example for tarantino is pretty ridiculous. the only american filmmaker today who works near that level of kubrick, welles and hitchcock is paul thomas anderson. i dont think there is anyone in america today who is making films that are as important or substantial as what anderson is consistently producing. the fact that he made 'there will be blood' at 37 years of age is insane.
Dec 16 - 04:16 AM
i reckon terrence malick is also right up there, but a lot of people would disagree
Dec 16 - 08:59 AM
I agree about Terence Malick. Amazing work.
Dec 17 - 10:52 AM
Two notes here:
"That movie is all about Daniel Day Lewis, who doesn't require 'directing'."
As opposed to Anderson who wrote, directed, and produced it. Yes, the heart of the film is Lewis's performance, but it expands beyond that - the score, the cinematography, the direction of all the actors (Dano took over the role of Eli with only four days to prep, he initially was only cast to play the brother). You're undercutting his talent as a director (see Sandler in Punch-Drunk, Wahlberg in Boogie Nights, his seemingly flawless use of children throughout his films) based on a single actor and a single film because of that one performer's process, while ignoring the fact that the process is always hand in hand with his director. It's kind of sad. And your following comparison using purely the tomato meter is ridiculous, especially when Django has only been reviewed by currently 34 people. And just to follow up your request - Death Proof is at 65%. Shape up dude, you're showing your bias.
"the fact that u put tarantino in the same category as kubrick and hitchcock is nonsense."
Your holding of the 'greats' in part seems to be tied to the pomp and circumstance of a specific type of film. Your relating to P.T. Anderson seems tied to the exceedingly deliberate tribute in style and composition to 2001 that There Will Be Blood was. Don't make the same mistake people of the time had made in the consideration of Kubrick (also, he has much better films than 2001 or A Clockwork Orange), because one thing that all these directors have done is literally invent a type of film (for Anderson see Magnolia). Tarantino, beyond your opinions, will always be held in the company of these greats and so will Anderson. They make big movies that no one else makes and they are never predictable. Tarantino had all the film he needed to make with Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, and the Kill Bills to find eternal consideration with the greats, everything after has been just that much more. The same can be said for Anderson up to There Will Be Blood. It's beyond personal opinion at this point, this is consensus of critical attention and opinion. They make different film, that's why they're relatable to Kubrick and Hitchcock. No one had ever made an 'Inglorious Basterds' until Tarantino, and that film above a great many of the greats deserves cultural recognition in the west - if you can't see past entertainment for the depth, it's your own fault.
PS - Terence Malick needs help ending his films. But he does deserve great recognition.
Dec 18 - 07:24 PM
to Mathew Williamson, i agree with most of what youve said. i do disagree however about Magnolia. PTA didnt 'literally invent a type of film' with Magnolia. He was heavily influenced by the work of Robert Altman, most noably Short Cuts and Nashville. Anderson was actually somewhat criticized for borrowing from his heroes (Scorsese, altman). Boogie Nights was heavily influenced by Goodfellas as well. He actually invented his only style and type of film when he veered away from the ensemble films. Punch-drunk love was his first film in his gradual transformation from imitator to auteur. There Will Be Blood and The Master are wholly original works that could only come from PTA. Yes, there are definite similarities to 2001 in TWBB, but theyre just similar visual metaphors and stuff. The Master has a cool detachment similar to a Kubrick film, but thats about as far as it goes. Tarantino and Anderson films are always an event, but i think Anderson's films (There will be blood, the master) will leave a stronger mark on American cinema
