Earth to America: This film is totally overrated.

So Quintin Tarantino makes a film which portrays the slavery as an evil, barbaric institution and also lampoons antebellum Southern culture. Brilliant. Novel. Why hasn't anyone ever thought of this before? Quentin Tarantino may have managed to make all the bed-wetting P.C. liberals in Hollywood swoon over his "Period" film and even get accolades from the academy. One thing Tarantino failed to do, however, was read a freshman American history textbook when he was researching for his screenplay. If he had done so, he would have learned the Ku Klux Klan WAS NOT EVEN FORMED in the United States until after the Civil War. Thus Tarantino's portrayal of a group of Klansmen was a huge anachronism and in my opinion denotes this film to mediocre-at-best status. And speaking of the Klan, what in the HELL was all that silliness about the way they put the potato sacks on their heads? I fully accept that it's great when a serious screenplay has an unexpected comic relief (think the graveyard scene in "Hamlet"). To his credit, Tarantino has done exceptional dark comic reliefs in the past: I still laugh at that scene in "Pulp Fiction" when Bruce Willis is sitting at a red light and just like that Marcellus Wallace walks right in front of his car. However, a comic relief should never change the genre of a film. In "Django Unchained," that happens. Anachronistic Klansmen arguing about potato sacks gets me thinking "Is this a Quentin Tarantino film or a Mel Brooks film?" And speaking of genre changes, the film is also replete with totally unrealistic Hollywood-style gunfights: I just loooove the way those bad guys always miss. So one minute it's a serious historical fiction called "Django Unchained," the next minute it's "Blazing Saddles," and then before you know it it's "Star Wars." Oh, and one other thing: IT'S ALSO UNDOUBTEDLY THE MOST OVERRATED FILM OF 2012. One last thing: is it just me, or does Jamie Foxx in that ridiculous costume remind us of when he was Wanda on "In Living Color?"

I thought it was painful to watch, but for the wrong reasons. Too much violence, a very 'male' film, with wonderful visual artistry, but not
enough compassion. I didn't really care about the characters, and a movie that essentially deals with slavery and its evils should at its core try to elicit some compassion. This elicited many other emotions: disgust, humour, horror. But there is no compassion.

Hey Folks! I thought I was done here but it turns out a new leaf has been turned regarding this film. Rotten Tomatoes just published a page called "Ridiculous Movie Mistakes." Read it yourselves, because it mentions "Django Unchained" for having an anachronism. It's not the anachronism I pointed out. Admittedly, many people do not think that was an anachronism though I still defend it was. The anachronism they pointed out? The usage of sunglasses! They claim sunglasses (albeit having been invented in other parts of the world at this time) were not introduced into the United States until decades after the Civil War. Like I said before, Quentin Tarantino just didn't do his homework. And for Jamie Foxx to be wearing shades right on the poster...Yuck. Now I know Alex Maverick or Brendan Sullivan are going to run their mouths about this comment so just for the joy of stealing your thunder: don't make some snide, done-to-death remark about Ben Stiller. It's getting old, even for you. For the sake of variety, try correct grammar and spelling! Warmest regards, Sam.

Anachronism this, anachronism that, what is with you and anachronisms? Let it go man. Yuck because Foxx is wearing totally badass shades even though they didn't exist in 1858? This is just ridiculous. We got a great story, brilliant dialogue, well developed characters, stellar acting, sweet costumes and pretty cinematography, and all you care about is anachronisms.

The point of the movie was to show an unfactual story in a factual world. Who gives a flying fuck about if he was wearing sunglasses? You're taking a awesome, fun, and over the top movie, and you're taking it to serious. Lighten up man, pull the stick out of your ass, and grow up.

Aw, you don't mean that, do you? It really hurts when you say I'm an "attention seeking fag." Gee, a guy who uses the internet to say nasty words he pry would never have the sack to say to somebody's face...there are epithets to describe people like you, too you know. And I know that nobody cares...so much that scores of people (yourself included) have responded to it many times. I must say something about your idiotic remark that I'm not going to change anybody's opinion. First of all, I probably have changed SOMEBODY'S opinion (544 reviews, not entirely outside the realm of possibility), second and by far the far the most important: WHO CARES? The purpose of this website is not necessarily to change opinions but to express your own. I have done that. You cool with that? If you don't like my opinion, feel free to not read it.

Alex, well that settles it. Even somebody as dumb as you must realize that telling me you did something a "loooooong time ago" is not tantamount to doing it. I asked you to do something; you failed. Oh, and I have to say something about your snide, stupid remark about my response to that ugly idiot Norman Radcliffe. Yes, Alex, I know what the word "fiction" means. Do you know what the term "Historical fiction" means? Put it this way, "Titanic" is a work of fiction. Still, it did not portray a ship sinking in 1913. WHY??? Because the ship sank in 1912. Also, it did not show passengers wearing slap-wrap bracelets or using cellular phones. It's amazing how one minute you are insisting that "Django..." does not contain an anachronism because of some nonexistent group called the "Regulators." Then when I make it clear that there was no such group so the film does, in fact, contain a huge anachronism you get all sarcastic and say "well, it's fiction." You're just contradicting yourself because you don't want to admit that I have a point. Oh and Brendan, I'm glad that you feel sorry for "you know." I was wrong about you, man. You are not cute. However, you too were wrong because you can see that this is one, ONE, post. I am sure that even you can count to one. Oh and Ben Affleck, I am honestly appreciative of your last remark. Coincidentally, we just found eggs really cheap the other day and bought a ton. I think tomorrow I'll make my famous deviled eggs and also read my book...all much more interesting than talking to Brendan or Alex. Later, dorks!

Hipster Elitist Maverick

Sam, I'm not gonna tell you something that has been said by myself and others a hundred times already. You already know the argument, so stop playing dumb like you don't. And I'm also not gonna tell you that you "have a point," which you do not. Saying that the KKK didn't exist in those days is just a fact. Why would give you props for stating something as obvious as the color of the sky? And speaking of "historical fiction" where are the books that condemn this idea that racist people killed freed slaves by doing what these people in the film did? Are you going to tell me that when a slave was freed, they had it easy for the rest of their life? That they weren't sometimes killed by white people? Why don't you go show me the evidence that condemns the masked men in this movie and we'll leave it at that. And also, "later, dorks"? What are you, a ten year old on a playground.

Sep 2 - 11:18 PM

Alex Maverick

Hipster Elitist Maverick

Also, calling Norman ugly when you've never even seen him before is pretty fucking stupid. You're not making yourself look smart by doing that and I know that your only goal is to appear intellectually superior to everyone else. So please, try harder, "dork."

Sep 2 - 11:22 PM

Sam M.

Sam McCrea

Thank you for telling me what my only goal is on this website, Alex. It's nice to know that you can read my mind. Especially since I doubt you read much else. However, I'm confused since just a minute ago you were telling me that I was playing dumb...? I am not specifically aware of books which "condemn" the idea that racist people ever killed freed slaves in the American South and, to be honest, I'm not sure what your point is. I'm sure there were some blacks who were killed by racists. I'm sure there were some blacks who were killed by Water Moccasins. Heck, I'm sure some blacks were killed by drowning; especially if they were in a canoe that capsized and they didn't know how to swim. What is your point? MY POINT is that there is no historical accuracy for groups of racist white bigots who banded together wearing potato sacks in the antebellum south and THEREFORE I claim (for the hundredth time) this scene in "Django Unchained" was an anachronism. Neither you nor anyone else on this website has given me reason to believe I am wrong to assert this. Furthermore, this is not a case of artistic licensing; more on that later. Oh and no, I am not claiming freed slaves had it easy for the rest of their lives; but just for the record (Earth to Alex) EVERYONE had a harder life in those days. Would YOU want to live in the south before air conditioning and refrigeration were invented? You strike me as the type who couldn't make it through the day without a latté.

Sep 4 - 03:14 PM

Alex Maverick

Hipster Elitist Maverick

My god, you are a dipshit. Thank you for telling me that I can't make it through a day without a latte (even though I've never even had one in my life). It's nice to know that you can read minds, quite poorly I might add. And thank you for proving my point, which is: you don't know if these people existed because (earth to Dumbass) you weren't alive back then. Therefore, big finale......your argument is pointless! This entire thread is pointless! And I don't know why you asked me if I would like to live back in those times. Jesus, you say you don't know what MY point is, well I don't know what yours is with that addition to your list of pointless arguments. I would ask you how you even came to the conclusion that i drink lattes, but I honestly couldn't give a fuck. Later, "dork."

You can't even argue right and your "ideological" bullshit you throw on this page is just another way of compensating for something. You even go to the level of calling us dorks. Wow, you're the reason why this country is so bad. Your dad should have wrapped and then tapped.

Alex, let me get this straight: I don't know if these people existed because I wasn't around back then. Okay. Would you say Christopher Colombus might have come to the Americas in 1492 on a Lear Jet? How do you know Lear Jets didn't exist in the 15th century? After all, you weren't around then. Same logic.
Oh and Brendan, FEAR NOT. I am definitely not trying to pick you up. The only thing you would get picked up for is disturbing the peace.

Sep 6 - 07:07 AM

Oh and Alex, there is one question I have to ask you. Why do you keep saying the stuff that I say? You know like the "earth to" and the "thank you for telling me" and the whole "dork" thing? You know, one of the biggest signs of inner peace is a loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others; and though they say imitation is the highest form of flattery I personally find it rather annoying. I also think it makes you look sad.

Alex. Wasted space? Seriously. As if these were hieroglyphs we were writing on here. I love the way that some people yammer for the hundredth time about how Django never contains the words "Ku Klux Klan" (even though I've made my counter-argument quite clear and sensible) and then have the nerve to talk about wasted space. I also love how a remark is only "wasted space" when somebody has pointed out an error in YOUR logic which you (true to form) have failed to respond to. Then again, maybe I don't love it. I admit for the past few months I've been amused by your idiotic remarks but it's getting old; and besides, a wise man once said "never have an argument with a complete moron, people might now know which is which." Man he had a point. The more I talk to both of you the more I get the feeling you honestly think I'm the idiot in this conversation and some people agree. Remember this though: you have not "proven" something just because you say you've proven it and you are not automatically right just because some people agree. That would have been a great way to end this conversation but I'm not quite finished yet. I have to respond the Brendan's remark that I'm what's wrong with this country. I'll tell you what's wrong with this country: in 1986 a man robbed a bank and Paula Deen called him a name. Now, 27 years later, nobody is the least bit angry at the man for robbing the bank but people do get angry at Paula Deen. Seriously, how much more warped and debased can our values possibly get. THAT is what's wrong with America you snivelly little punk. I've had enough of both of you. Sayonara.

Sep 18 - 11:25 AM

Alex Maverick

More wasted space. And considering that your argument is about as pointless as trying to figure our why a dog licks his balls, it's amazing how hard you try to defend it. No, there was no KKK during the time of this movie. Is that what you were looking for?

You know Alex, the more you talk the dumber you seem. Feel free to quit any time. The reason I called Norman ugly is because he has this thing on his profile. It's called a picture. And it looks like a hopelessly scrawny, pale, ugly Goth dude with a wretched Euro-trash hairstyle. Normally I wouldn't be so cruel but you know the things he said to me were not cool. F-bombs and all...
Far more importantly: have you (Alex or Alex) ever seen the "Prince of Egypt?" Perhaps the most arresting scene in this animated film is when Moses' followers are walking through the divinely-parted ocean. As they walk through it, and lightning strikes, you'll notice that you can see fish and other marine life in the water. It even shows a whale. Now, there is no part of the Old Testament which says this actually happened. It doesn't say anything about what they saw through the water. I've actually read the Bible cover-to-cover twice, but that's neither here nor there. Still, the "Prince of Egypt" does not contain an anachronism. Of course there were whales in those days. What it DOES contain is artistic licensing. The whale was added for effect. However, adding something to a work of historical fiction which (at least in all likelihood) simply did not exist in those times is not an example of artistic licensing. It is an anachronism. Thank you. Quick question: is it possible that "Alex Anonymous" and Alex Maverick are the same person? It would give "talking to himself" a whole new meaning.

Connor Donegan

Connor Donegan

the character chemistry between django and Dr. schultz was absolute magic. the movie blended comedy, action, drama and romance seamlessly (something i cannot say for inglorious basterds). this movie is consistently good from beginning to end. your problems with the movie are minor and do not change the fact this may be his best written movie since pulp fiction.

the character of King Schultz was stunning because that man is SO smart and so charming, but, he is also very dangerous. django isn't much of a character in the beginning but when him and schultz team up, thats when django gets interesting. Schultz becomes Django's teacher and it is absolutely fascinating to see the back and forth in dialogue between an uneducated slave who is trying to learn and the genius yet sympathetic Dr. Schultz. Qunetin tarantino is excellent at making conversations between characters sound real and that is what knocks this film out of the park.

your rant is long winded and non sensical. when it comes to the KKK scene, it was never not once specified that they were klansmen. actually what they really were was just an angry mob. also, are you totally against comedy in an action-adventure movie? do you hate the indiana jones movies for blending comedy, action, drama and romance together? tarantino blended the genres in this movie perfectly and there are hundreds of millions of witnesses who can attest to that fact.

everything i have listed about the movie above is just a small part of delicious detail to what could be his most detailed, extravagantly made movie to date. lets not forget the stephen character or calvin candie or how django poses as a black slave owner who gave it his all and gave a terrifying performance. oh, and if you want to watch a movie that sets up random situations just to show violence, go watch saw, you moron.

Jul 24 - 09:21 AM

Okay Connor, your first two paragraphs made me think. I did not really see that chemistry when I saw Django, however, like I said, I do plan to re-watch this film some day especially in light of all my commentary.

well finally you actually said somethings smart. Kaisher, so was star wars 1, iron man 3, and pirates two. Doesn't mean they were great films.

dude, star wars 1 was not the new hope, but the phantom menace

Jul 25 - 10:05 PM

Okay I get what you're saying but the first Star Wars film ever released was A New Hope. That was way back in the 70's.

I would have said the new hope if I meant that. Star wars 1 is the phantom menace

You're tripping, best film I've seen in a long time. Captivated from the first minute until the end, top notch dialogue, intelligent humor, amazing video-work and soundtrack. Go back to watching Twighlight, Hunger Games, or Fast and Furious 5,000.

One of the best films of 2012, alongside The Dark Knight Rises. Its absolutly crazy and brilliant with Leonardo Dicaprio displaying a flawless performance(should have won best supporting actor academy award). GREAT film and my favorite by Tarantino.

This movie is just a sequence of situations made up just for the purpose of showing violence, kind of like the violence equivalent of porn.

So violence didn't happen back then?

Jun 3 - 04:46 AM

Actually, pry not like the way Tarantino portrayed it. I thought the plot was grand-standing.

I realize that. The way he portrayed it is different, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen.

Oh is that what is, Satyam? Thanks for clearing that up. Considering everyone in that time period were absolute angels and plantation owners played Parcheesi with their slaves and never ever abused them. Back then, no one ever used the "n" word either. Also, Quentin Tarantino never uses violence in any of his films.

Fucking moron. If you're really that dumb, you shouldn't be posting.

Jun 3 - 09:24 AM

You just said that Quentin Tarantino never uses violence in any of his films. I realize the first stuff was sarcasm but that sentence just doesn't make sense. But just so we're clear: "Dumb" people are definitely allowed to post stuff on the internet. In fact, sometimes I think it's about all they do.

Most over rated film ever. To such an extent that even the critics seem to be too scared to tell the truth about this movie. It is as if the loudmouthed Mr.Tarantino will come and bash them up if they panned the movie.

Blondie

He doesn't mind if critics bash it because it creates discussion on a subject that hasn't been in the public eye for a while and it's his doing. Plus, who cares what other people think, as long as you're proud of it?

Since Jackie Brown all QT movies are overrated. Django is so bad I'm surprised it even got produced. It's easily QT's worst and one of the worst performances I've seen from a director that has actually produced noteworthy material.

Retarded you say all these bad things about this film and it continues to get praised by critics and audiences alike you and the faggot Sam McCrea are probably 2 of 100 people that do not like this film, just because you don't like it doesn't mean its a bad film it just means you have bad taste.

Jul 1 - 07:25 AM

Speaking of bad taste, YOU are the one posting vulgarities on the internet just because somebody disagreed with you. Grow up, Eric. People have the right to their own opinions.

You are not the only ones. Don't get me wrong, I didn't think the movie was 0/100... But probably the most overrated movie I have EVER seen in my life. Almost everyone either loved it or just really liked it. As if they are afraid of being called racists if they don't love it to death. I find a lot of his films highly overrated..

First of all Sam. The "klu Klux Klan" was never mentioned. They were an inept bunch with poorly formed hoods made by someones wife. And for God's sake. It was a Tarantino movie, not a documentary. One of his best.

Jun 2 - 09:59 AM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

He didn't say 'klu Klux Klan'

Jun 7 - 11:27 AM

Sam M.

Sam McCrea

Jay. No way. Pulp fiction was probably his best. He's gone downhill from there. And yes, I know for the zillionth time they did not say "Ku Klux Klan" but that's just a cop-out. An anachronism is an anachronism. Look, Django unchained may be...cute. However, it is just not worthy of academy awards.

Jun 22 - 06:06 PM

Keith Beaumont

You do realize that all awards shows are bullshit anyway? Who gives a damn about which movies get Oscars? The Academy Awards is just a circle jerk.

Aug 7 - 12:25 PM

Aw come on, Keith. You wouldn't say that about Academy Awards if you won one.

Aug 16 - 08:27 PM

Oh and just so you know; many people DO give a damn which movies win Oscars. The winners are remembered not just for years but for generations.

Aug 16 - 08:28 PM

Sam M.

Sam McCrea

Jay Strauss: Okay, for the HUNDREDTH time, perhaps literally, I do not care that the Ku Klux Klan was never actually mentioned in this film. The implication that it WAS the Klan was perfectly obvious to anybody with half a brain. Put it this way: if you made a film set in the 1950's and there was a scene where a character took a tiny disk, put it in a stereo and played music with it, I would say that was an anachronism even if you did not actually SAY that it was a CD. GOT THAT?? Good. Tarantino portrayed something which simply did not occur in that time period and therefore it is an anachronism. I would appreciate it if people would quit hemming and hawing about nit-picky details and acknowledge that I have a point. An anachronism is an anachronism. THANK YOU!!

Norman Radcliffe

You're a fucking idiot. If you had done any research on this topic at all, you would know that the men in the masks were called Regulators. Do you know why? Because there was no such thing as the KKK just yet. And seriously, you actually accuse people of nit-picking, you dumb motherfucker? You're the fucking king of nit-picking. "Oh, there was no KKK back then! I don't care if they aren't even called the KKK or the fact that they barely even look like the KKK! That's bad continuity!" Hey dumbass, did you see those guys wearing long white robes with pointy masks? You didn't? Then guess what: they weren't the official KKK yet! They were the guys who would eventually become the KKK. Is that clear enough for you, dipshit?

Aug 27 - 12:54 PM

Sam M.

Sam McCrea

Oh, I'm an idiot? Well just so you know I took an AP American history class and NOWHERE in that class did they mention a group called the regulators. I'd be willing to bet I've read more works of American historical fiction than you have read ANYTHING and have never read anything about an antebellum group called the "Regulators." I even "googled" the regulators and failed to find anything mentioning such a group (As Tarantino portrayed them) in the antebellum south. I also volunteered as a docent at what was once southern plantation and guess what? None of the experts at that museum or any of the slave descendents who frequented this museum ever said anything about a group called the regulators. Do you know why? Because in all likelihood, THE GROUP YOU ARE REFERRING TO DID NOT EXIST. I can see that you have very limited cognitive abilities, but I will make this every bit as clear and as elementary as I can. The group of men wearing potato sacks in "Django Unchained" simply did not exist in that time period. Therefore, I am entirely correct when I say that this is an anachronism. If you still do not agree, then I suggest you look up the word "Anachronism" in a Webster's dictionary. And if you want to see a dipshit, look in the mirror...if you can stand to.

I don't mind Tarantino films, at least the older ones, but after 75 minutes of BORING I had to turn this one off! The storyline is infantile and just seems to drag on and on. I can't imagine being baby sat through another 90 minutes of this snooze-fest. I'd have stood up if I was in the theatres watching this monstrocity of a thing, put my coat on and walked the F out! It got to the point where I was counting the number of times people said the "N" word as opposed to caring what was going on in the movie. Not good. Not good at all.

May 25 - 12:02 AM

Alex Maverick

Hipster Elitist Maverick

For the 100th fucking time, the "N" word was a common word that people said casually back in those times. I swear to God, people who use that as a reason that they don't like this movie are so fucking stupid.

May 30 - 01:52 PM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

I think one thing that stands out about Tarantino and this script is that he's already taken full advantage of the word in most of his films so far. He himself says it a few times in Pulp and it's a little weird. In this it's obvious but it's just as convenient as the amplified violence that he also likes to set against racism as a theme in his films. How much further could he go from this point with these themes now that he's gone this far back in time?

May 31 - 08:34 AM

Weiss.........all you had to say is: "Before you ask, I liked Transformers more than Django Unchained. :)"
And you summed up your critique abilities.

Jun 1 - 11:23 AM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

Eh, you can say it sums up my taste, but even THAT isn't true. I wanted to like Django. I didn't like it. I don't like Jamie Foxx and I'm certain that's a big part of it. Eyes Wide Shut would be one of my top five films if not for Tom Cruise. My 'critique abilities' are just fine.. Grand. When Transformers came out I'm certain many of you flocked and saw it and liked it and wanted more, sadly Michael Bay is actually the most horrible creative mind in Hollywood, but he made one good crowd pleaser that was exactly what it was selling. Django was disappointing to me, I like shit tons of guilty pleasures more than Django- Nightmare on Elm Street 3: the Dream Warriors is in my top 10 favorite films, or movies. I like it more than Django. Kindergarden Cop, so quotable, too funny and how much do I like it? More than Django Unchained. No one is defending why they think Django is good I noticed. I'm pleased enough having an un popular opinion in this realm.

Jun 2 - 06:24 AM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

I like every single one of Tarantino's films by the way, even his segment in Four Rooms. I OWN Django. I bought it AFTER seeing it and not liking it, because I'm a certified Tarantino Fan-boy. I expected more and it didn't deliver what I find to be provocative or intriquing.

Jun 2 - 06:36 AM

Cody H.

Cody Halpert

I liked Django Unchained for a few reasons. The performances from Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson were all fantastic. I liked the way that Django's character grew from a timid slave to a badass. And I really liked the German legend that Christoph Waltz told about Siegfried willing to go through anything to rescue Broomhilda because it tied in directly to the story of Django going through "hellfire" to get his wife back because she's worth it. This is just my opinion of why I liked it.

Jun 2 - 03:03 PM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

Good reasons and very eloquently put. I can't wait to see more of Waltz in the future, like in Tim Burton's new movie. No doubt that those performances were done well.

he's awesome. I just got a graphic novel called 'gonzo' (apparently everything must be called 'gonzo' the movie, the scrapbook, steadman's collection..) that I had no idea existed. It's pretty cool. Did u see Rum Diary? I haven't yet because it was the one book I didn't love just because it seemed too modest almost, like he didn't want it to climax or form a narrative with any traditional form. I wrote to him and sent a copy of Screwjack and he wrote me back with it signed a year before he died. Top 5 days of my life :)

May 31 - 02:41 PM

Chase The Lost

Chase: The Lost Trollfighter

That's amazing, brother. Did he send you a liter of Wild Turkey as well? Lol but seriously, I haven't seen The Rum Diary. It was a book he wrote before he became seriously involved with hallucinogens that resulted in the birth of his alter ego, Raoul Duke, whom we were introduced to in his novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The Rum Diary, from what I understand, was very true to his actual personality even though I haven't read it yet.

I heard that too. Some characters are melted into one. Johnny Depp found a draft of it in his basement and told him he should publish it. True story, I guess he found tons of dynamite under his bed while chain smoking.

Jun 24 - 04:45 PM

Sam M.

Sam McCrea

Da Pitt and Alex, just for the record, I am not claiming that people did not say that word a lot during the slavery. So no, I am not saying I dislike a film just because it has that word a zillion times. What I am saying is that I don't automatically LIKE a film just because it has that word a zillion times. I imagine back in 2011 Mr. Tarantino sat at his desk and said "I'll write a screenplay that will be a quick slam-dunk, an easy victory with limousine liberals." Thanks to people as naive as you two, it worked.

Aug 16 - 08:36 PM

Yeah, people only liked it because it used the N word. Sam,do you TRY to sound dumb?

Aug 27 - 12:58 PM

Alex Maverick

Hipster Elitist Maverick

Hey, Sam. I didn't like the movie because it used the N word. I never said that, so you should just the shut the fuck up with that. I said people shouldn't be using that as a reason to not like it because it was a common term back in those days.

May 17 - 03:54 AM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

Transformers, GI JOE, Die Hard 5, Fast and the Furious = dumb fun. Django isn't a 'dumb fun' kind of popcorn movie. Basterds was much more inventive than this was. I would have much preferred the slight of hand in Basterds where the inaccuracies didn't show themselves and it was shocking. Django was shocking in some moments, but lacked the inventiveness and you really don't care where the story is going in a linear way because it's entirely unpredictable. So much that you don't get to actually know the characters because they are all constantly acting out of the character they have been presented as, except for Samuel L., he was consistent and easy to hate, Leo did well, but I wanted to fear Candie more after their intro to him before meeting him.

May 24 - 08:14 AM

Jeff Walken

I understand that this is hard for your brain to understand, so I'll try not to use any big words. You find enjoyment out of a really stupid movie and then you have the audacity (use a dictionary if you must) to say that Alex has bad taste. Come back when you've grown up, please.

May 24 - 01:20 PM

Mr. Parker, I doubt he knows what enjoyment means.

May 24 - 01:29 PM

Yeah, im an idiot with no vocabulary. You're kinda pathetic defending this film with such intensity. It's a movie. Your opinion is the popular one, so you're right. That still doesn't make me wrong.

May 24 - 02:11 PM

Jeff P.

Jeff Walken

I'm really not interested in what a nine year old considers to be pathetic, but you are right about one thing. Opinions aren't right or wrong, but you being an asshole that tries to insult other peoples tastes really isn't cool. And I see that you don't like it when someone else does it to you. So, please stop writing hypocritical responses.

May 24 - 04:02 PM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

Yeah, clearly you're not interested in what I (the apparent 9 year old) think. That's. What keeps you coming back, your lack of care. Now did I run you completely out of material because your insults are getting waaaaay less clever. You're starting to show your age.

May 24 - 04:15 PM

Michael Weiss

'Hard for your brain to understand'? You should be ashamed of that one Jeff. There is literally zero creativity there.

May 24 - 04:31 PM

Primm as well 'I doubt he knows what enjoyment means.' That's what you're contributing? try just a little bit at least!

May 24 - 04:34 PM

Jeff P.

Jeff Walken

I think it's funny how whenever someone points out something about you and your idiocy, you just try to change the subject. Instead of trying to actually defend yourself, you just try to come up with pathetic insults to put other people on the defense. Is it because you have nothing logical to say that will actually make your arguments valid? I don't know, but it sure seems like it. So, I'll just repeat my original argument and then we'll see you try to change the subject again. So, here it goes: Opinions aren't right or wrong, but you being an asshole that tries to insult other peoples tastes really isn't cool. And I see that you don't like it when someone else does it to you. So, please stop writing hypocritical responses.

May 25 - 11:32 AM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

I know this is probably hard for your brain to understand Jeff, but if you think it's so uncool to insult someone's taste in films, why do you chose to do it repeatedly? So you want me to not change your topic and talk about how I'm an asshole? Well, no, not gonna do that. You kids are far more aggressive with your heated and passionate responses than I am. 'Please stop writing hypocritical responses'? That's a pretty funny request. My arguments are completely valid to me, I don't like this movie. I love Tarantino, love Waltz, Like Leo and I wanted to like this movie, I didn't. Enough said, there ya have it. And I am correct in my personal reasoning, no?

May 25 - 11:47 AM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

But hey, I'm a nine year old and you don't care about my opinion right? Wait, I guess you do... Please stop writing hypocritical responses.

May 25 - 11:49 AM

Jeff P.

Jeff Walken

Wow, I can't believe how much of what you said that I said isn't true at all.

1. I never said I didn't care about your opinion. I said I don't care what you consider to be pathetic

2. The reason I insulted your opinion was to show you that it isn't cool to do that. I only did it because I've seen you do it on multiple occasions.

3. I never said I wanted you to talk about how much of an asshole you are. I said that you never defend yourself because you can't defend yourself because you have no argument.

So, I hoped this helped.

Here's an actual argument about the topic: Alex compared this movie to Cowboys and Aliens which is ludicrous. To say that a Tarantino film could reflect that kind of simple popcorn movie narrative or formula or style is insulting to a film maker like Tarantino. What he was making was an homage to Boss Nigger and Django. Even the kind of contrast made in the genre mash-up isn't as simple as what Favreau did with C&A. So again, apart from simple costume design, you can't compare them. His taste came into question because his only reviewed films are major franchises and Tarantino films. This explains why he would compare this movie to Cowboys and Aliens. He doesn't know about true Spaghetti Westerns and likely doesn't even know the difference between one and a regular Western. See the Searchers if you want to see a perfect film, see the Maltese Falcon. Lawrence of Arabia, The Magnificent Seven.. BRING IT! If you like films, talk real films, not just what's repeating on HBO. Tim Boone had very valid arguments that made me like this movie slightly more because of sideways referencing from movies that I love, he had an educated argument, he didn't just throw the 'fucktards' and 'assholes' and homosexual insults. He possesses a valid learned opinion. Do you have enough of one to expand on this now?

People who don't humor childish insults because they aren't fighting back with childish insults will appear to be getting their ass kicked by someone who's childish enough to enjoy meandering childish insults. So, sure, i got my ass kicked because I didn't fight.

Let's tackle this point by point. To Rebut: Assuming your first sentence was meant as sarcasm, Quentin Tarantino (henceforth QT) is a movie buff, and all of his movies are simply spins on previously released material. He doesn't want to make something nobody's ever thought of before, he wants to put his own spin on something that he watched growing up. Have you ever seen a western before? Specifically a spaghetti western (for which QT himself has said he was mimicking.) Please tell me you're not serious about historical accuracies in western movies. If you are, then you have completely failed to grasp the purpose of fictional cinema. In addition, there is never once a depiction of the KKK in this film. If you heard anyone mention that name, you watched a different movie than I did. Also, that scene with the pre-klan bigots was hilarious and as far as I can tell, was still filmed in line with the western genre. I almost don't want to point this out, but this movie is technically a Hollywood movie (as opposed to Bollywood, or indie?)and therefore "Hollywood style" anything could be applied to it. Let me sum up what, based on your review, you are looking for... You would like to see a western drama, that was actually filmed in the 1850's so as to be 100% accurate, with no humor and a story line in which the protagonist dies within the first 30 seconds, because all of the antagonists are more accurate with pistols. I would not watch your movie, nor would anybody else. I would, however watch a QT movie, because he has imagination and flair and presents to us an enjoyable escape from reality, which is the number on thing any fictional movie should strive to do. One last thing: the costumes Jamie Foxx wore were supposed to be ridiculous, that was part of the humor of the movie, which you've already established that you were upset with any kind of humor or non-fictional elements. I would recommend never going to see a movie again if I were you, as you will only ever be disappointed if you're looking for non-fiction...

May 16 - 07:05 AM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

Sometimes people don't like movies no matter how popular they are to like. I love Tarantino and Waltz and I think this was in Tarantino's worst films with Jackie Brown and Four Rooms. Do those movies suck? Not really, but they're no Pulp Fiction/Basterds/Reservoir Dogs.

May 16 - 11:17 AM

Josh G.

Josh Galbraith

Well if we're ranking his movies, none of them are Pulp Fiction. I agree it's not his best movie ever, but to bash it for being historically inaccurate is pretty silly. I mean, I know Inglorious Basterds was basically a documentary of exactly what happened in real life, but still, this movie shouldn't be shunned for being fiction ;P

May 16 - 11:25 AM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

Are you being sarcastic about Basterds being accurate? Basically if Basterds were real history, WWII would be CALLED something else entirely as only 13 American soldiers would have ended the war before Normandy. The audience wasn't clued in entirely until the huge historical figures died in very inaccurate ways. I liked that. I just didn't like Jamie Foxx that much either, I really wish Will Smith would have accepted the role, he may have made the role endearing.

May 16 - 04:27 PM

Alex Maverick

I hope you weren't being serious when you asked if he was being sarcastic.

May 16 - 05:54 PM

Josh G.

Josh Galbraith

Yeah I'm personally glad Will Smith didn't take the roll. I've never really thought of him as a versatile actor. He's funny, and flashy, but neither of those things would have helped this movie. Jamie Foxx has proven time and again that he has a much broader ability to act than Will Smith. I liked Django but I can certainly understand how someone wouldn't like it. I just didn't think the OP presented any valid arguments of why not to like the movie. You can't slam a fictional movie for being fictional. At least you can't do it and retain any credibility. The fact that this movie was a Blaxploitation/Spaghetti Western mash-up just makes bashing it for being inaccurate all the more ludicrous. My initial post was simply pointing out that you can't bash Tarantino for making a historically inaccurate film, because to even begin to make that an issue is just incredibly ignorant.

Interesting. That was the second time that you avoided answering my question. This leads me to believe that you are a fucking dipshit who really thought that Josh Galbraith was being serious when he called Inglorious Basterds a historically accurate movie. Since you have said nothing to prove otherwise, this is the only conclusion: You are an idiot. Feel free to actually answer my question this time or just post some more irrelevant shit further proving my point.

'Did u call muah a dipshit?' I just don't humor children who enjoy movies like Amazing Spiderman and Episode 3. You're just a kid who likes franchise films and I can't relate to that.

It's cute that you actually went onto my page to try and insult me. Sorry, kid, that shit don't work on me. You know why? Because I know the difference between someone who is really trying to insult me and someone who is just trying to evade my question for a third consecutive time. And you're doing a pretty shitty job of trying to accomplish it. So, are you done playing your childish games? You wanna answer my question now? I know you don't want to answer truthfully because you know it will make you look stupid. But I'd still like to know.

May 21 - 09:49 PM

Michael Weiss

I would say that almost all Westerns are historically inaccurate. The Searchers, all of Clint Eastwood's films.. Tombstone and Red River are only two I can think of that would claim to be more than fictional. How many Westerns have you seen? Would you say that Django is the same thing as Wild Wild West? There's no Spiderman or Jedi in WWW but if you haven't seen it, I think it's right up YOUR alley.

May 22 - 11:05 AM

Alex Maverick

Hipster Elitist Maverick

If all westerns are historically inaccurate, then why do people bitch about Django being inaccurate? And yeah, I saw Wild Wild West about twelve years ago. I don't even remember what its about. So, I don't know why that was even brought up. And why would there be Spider-man or Jedi in it? That doesn't make any sense. Are you on LSD or something?

Just so we're clear: Because I gave a Spider-Man movie a B grade and Revenge of the Sith a C grade, you believe that I would only like a western movie with Spider-Man and Jedis? How fucking stupid are you?

What I'm saying Alex is that you don't know shit about movies if you think Cowboys and Aliens is the same thing as Django Unchained. Its obvious in your taste in movies that you basically stick to franchises and have no real opinion beyond Jedi and Spiderman, maybe some Harry Potter? Twilight?

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

It's true, no one blasts Young Guns or Saving Private Ryan or any other movie for being a piece of fiction set in a different period. Although Private Ryan has a few problems, (the storyteller being the guy who wasn't there for 3/4 of the film) but with this movie specifically I think the concept would be more interesting if the setup led you to believe that it WAS accurate. It's like it could be easier to relate to if this time line could lead to ours. My beef with it is just in finding more enjoyable characters and seeing the actors I love, like Waltz, being a little more 'fish-in-water.' He was ridiculously cast in Green Hornet, although he's one of the few things that makes it watchable, but I really want to see more with him and have it be believable. The German speaking Hilda and the appearance of the worst Aussie accents ever took me completely out of the story.

May 17 - 12:39 PM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

I know what you mean about Will Smith, but I think he has potential BEYOND what he's done thus far. He's not an AMAZING actor, but I want to see him do something different. Tarantino saw something in him and I think I see the same thing.

Dear Josh, I'm glad to know you thought it was hilarious. I just sat there thinking it was really dumb. Also, I must confess that, no, I do not know what a spaghetti western is. ? Who knows, perhaps my critics are right. After all, 94% thought it was good. Maybe Tarantino DOES have his own special genre. But to be honest, I don't think so. I think SOME rules are not meant to be broken. I'll tell you one thing though; I think I'll watch that movie again some day. After all, I've received such, ahem, bombast for my views. If I do, I'll let you know.

Thank you Brandan. The said has spoken. Now that I've thought about it, however, there is something else I must say about Galbraith's remark. Have you ever seen "Unforgiven?" I liked that movie a lot. I am mentioning this just to point out that, no, I do not automatically dislike a movie just because it is a Western. Come to think of it, I thought "Brokeback Mountain," albeit constantly lampooned and ridiculed, was a well-made film. But "Django Unchained" does not have the premise, conflict or character development of either of these films. It's just silly. Face it, this movie sucks.

Jun 22 - 06:24 PM

Rami Nawfal

Rami Nawfal

@ Sam: You see, the thing is, this movie doesn't suck. There is nothing to "face". And comparing a film like that to Brokeback Mountain is just ridiculous. Doesn't have the character development or conflict? You must be joking. And another thing, what are you still doing here? You do know you're not going to sway the minds of the majority, right? Your arrogance doesn't help either.

Jun 23 - 04:27 AM

Josh G.

Josh Galbraith

How old are you? It's surprising that someone who wants to be taken seriously as a critic for a movie that is defined as a homage to spaghetti westerns has no idea what that is. It's okay if you don't understand the humor in Quentin Tarantino movies. But to say it's overrated because you don't understand it is a bit conceited don't you think? I remember when I went to the theater to see Grindhouse, 75% of the people in the audience left after the first 10 minutes. Why do people who have no taste for his brand of violence insist on going to see his movies? If you have no interest in the genre, why watch the movie? In addition, why would you then write a review bashing a movie for being the kind of movie you had no interest in seeing to begin with?

Jun 5 - 10:55 AM

Sam M.

Sam McCrea

Oh one other thing. I do not believe Jamie Foxx's costume added to any hilarity in this film. If you ask me, there wasn't any. This is not to say "wacky" stuff can't be funny. Just one example: the scene in "Ghost" where Whoopi Goldberg had to give the 4 million dollars to the nun. I was only 12 when I saw that movie and I almost passed out laughing. But Jamie Foxx in that outfit doesn't strike me as humorous. I found it queer and rather silly. Out of place, you know?

May 16 - 10:45 PM

Sam M.

Sam McCrea

Rami Nawfal, what you just said was pretty weak. What I'm still doing here is responding to comments. Are you cool with that? When I don't, I get criticized for not defending my beliefs. As for not swaying the minds of the majority, that is an interesting point. In light of that, I'd like to mention two things: first of all, we're here to talk about movies, not win a Nobel Prize. Or in other words, this is RottenTomatoes, not the People's Court. However, this evening I happened to notice that my post has more comments, and more RECENT comments, than any other post regarding Django Unchained. I've noticed more of the commentators are on my side, as well. So perhaps I HAVE swayed minds a bit. SO THERE.

So one minute it's a serious historical fiction called "Django Unchained," the next minute it's "Blazing Saddles," and then before you know it it's "Star Wars."

Well seeing as how this is a Quentin Tarantino film, I think you can pretty much throw out "serious historical fiction." I mean c'mon, within the first couple minutes Waltz's character blows the heads off a man and a horse in a gloriously over the top scene.(and buckets upon buckets of fake blood)

"Is this a Quentin Tarantino film or a Mel Brooks film?"

You're welcome to your own opinion, but this is a Tarantino film. You said you've seen Tarantino films before, but then complain about everything that comprises his type of films. They are random, over-the-top cinema with the sole purpose of entertainment. He entices you with clever writing and excellent acting(Christoph Waltz), then he splatters you with moments of pure, non-thinking, over the top action. The way he's able to seamlessly blend the two while throwing in his own unique humor is brilliant.

If you take this film seriously, then you're doing it wrong. If you don't like this type of film, that's your own opinion, but don't fault it for what it is.

May 7 - 10:31 PM

Sam M.

Sam McCrea

At first it did seem like it was intended as a serious, plausible work of historical fiction. Or perhaps I've read too many Michener novels. But the point is that the theme of the film appeared to alter in my view from one scene to the next and that is flaky. The dialogue of a film grows and changes, but the theme should remain the same.

May 16 - 10:31 PM

David Gee

I've seen six of Tarantino's films, and this is the only one that I would not watch again. My reasoning is simple: the further along the movie went, the more stupid it got. Especially from the point where Django tricks the guys into giving him a gun forward it felt like the movie was written by a 12-year old. The final shootout was so predictable and childish it pretty much ruined what little was left to ruin for me. Just my opinion.

David: thank you. Alex, he said "The further along the movie went, the more stupid it got." That could have started anywhere. He only claims the stupidity PEAKS in the final scene. So no, Alex, he is not saying he liked everything until the last ten minutes. By the way, even if that were true, the last ten minutes could easily ruin an otherwise good movie. If Romeo and Juliet just said "oh, forget about running away" and she got a new boyfriend and he went to London as an exchange student would it still be considered a pinnacle love story? I don't think so.

Oh and Gary, there is one more thing that really should be said about your snively remark: even if I DID misspell the guy's name, that is not an error in grammar, it's an error in spelling. Let's stick to the language we've all agreed on. An error in grammar would be something like your comma mistake I pointed out. Oh, the irony. You know there's an old saying: "People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones."

I agree, way over-rated. Good (not great) MOVIE, not a great FILM whatsoever. This isn't art house or Oscar worthy, but it's not terrible. Tarantino's (2nd) cameo is his worst performance yet and drops the films integrity by about 20%. Waltz is the only thing close to an endearing character you can get behind. SLJ's role was only inserted for stereotypical shock value that I thought fell flat. I love Tarantino and thought this was his worst film after Jackie Brown. I wanted more attention to detail. In the opening my friend and I said in unison 'his teeth are waaaaay to pearly blue/white!' for a 1800s white trash country asshole no less.

Michael Weiss, I have to say, I disagree with some of your statements;
First of all, what constitutes what is 'art house' or a 'FILM'? Does the movie not have enough of an artsy,self-important vibe? How can a tiny cameo in a long, intense, epic movie ruin the whole thing, I don't get that..That's your opinion though, but as far as SLJ's role being "only inserted for stereotypical shock value"(that "fell flat"), I think you're only seeing one side of a multi-faceted, very complex character/performance. In fact, SLJ's character/performance, IMHO, is one of the most fascinating aspects of the movie in many ways.

If you pay close attention, you'll see that SLJ's 'Stephen' is putting on an act in front of everyone; he does the whole exaggerated(and brilliant)Uncle Tom schtick in front of the other slaves, and guests and what not, but if you pay attention to the subtle, yet very profound differences in his personality when he's out there in front of everyone, and the moments when he's being himself; when he and Calvin Candie step into the library for their private conversation in which Stephen reveals his suspicions about Django,Schultz, and Broomhilda, Stephen has a whole different demeanor, he's like another character. His accent changes, he has complete relaxed confidence, he's more articulate, and generally has a completely different demeanor about him. He also reveals his true character at the climax, when he drops his cane and stands up straight to confront Django.

Stephen is a fascinating character; all at once, he's a despicable human being, the lowest of the low, for turning against his own kind and being just as evil, if not more so, than the slavemaster(s), But, at the same time, it can be argued that slavery is such a harrowing experience and is so soul shattering, that this man likely has much self-loathing and can even be seen as sympathetic, making him, at once, simultaneously the most despicable And the most sympathetic character in the film, if you think about it.

As far as the opening, are you referring to Dr. King Schultz that has the way too white pearly whites? Because, if so, you should definitely pay more attention; Schultz is a respectable, sophisticated, cultured man from Germany, not a white trash country asshole, and by the way, he's a DENTIST. Also, did you see Calvin Candie's 'pearly whites'?

May 3 - 08:33 AM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

It's the white trash country assholes moving all the slaves with all the pearly whites.

May 3 - 09:56 AM

Tim Boone

Tim Boone

Well, the fact that Calvin Candie was shown to have horribly rotted teeth, and Mr. Stonesipher with the dogs and all those greasy grimy guys in that group, these things prove to me that Tarantino's choice to have the Speck brothers have somewhat normal looking teeth, this is clearly not an oversight. In fact, you're arguing that an inaccurate, stereotypical attribute would have been preferable to what's onscreen. It would be an oversight to have all of the characters having 'pearly whites', and the same goes for having none of the characters having pearly whites. The type of greasy dirty characters of Mr. Stonesipher and those guys, they're clearly filthy caricatures of dirty hillbillies, but not every character in the movie is like this, nor should they be. While the Speck brothers are despicable, narrow minded people, clearly, it's obvious that they're somewhat civilized, at least as far as their hygiene and grooming seem to be, and that is good 'attention to detail'. If all the characters were just these filthy hillbillies then it would be a lazy, overly simplistic, one-sided oversight, IMO.

May 3 - 10:16 AM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

Alright Tim, I gotcha. I have to admit I was a smidge biased as well because I thought the design of True Grit would have been something to aspire for in a movie like this. The teeth were terrible! It's the TONE of white, though, without fluoride how could you get that blue/white?! I know that's psychotic, but that was where my mind went.

May 3 - 11:28 AM

Tim Boone

Tim Boone

Well, I do feel ya there, and I've thought about the same thing, I love how they portrayed these characters on True Grit, and something like that would have been appealing, though of course I do still stand by what I said, but I definitely see your point..

Quick question: Did you hate the movie Cowboys & Aliens because director Jon Favreau didn't "read a freshman American history textbook" while making the film?

Apr 27 - 09:27 AM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

apples and oranges!

Apr 27 - 09:45 AM

Alex Maverick

Hipster Elitist Maverick

How so? They're both works of fiction. Neither of them have a disclaimer that says "Based on a true story." The characters never existed. There are certain elements in both of them had didn't exist at the time (or ever). The list of similarities goes on and on.

Apr 27 - 04:04 PM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

Frist of all, you ARE using the costume design and era as a jump off point so don't pretend you're not. Second, Cowboys and Aliens is a western themed SCIENCE FICTION piece based on a comic book, Django is a genre mashup based on an original screenplay by a writer that focuses on Crime/Drama and very specific sub genre themes from our cinema's history. Tarantino's 'universe' is really just like ours except for that every story that plays out generally just leads to a very messy room full of blood and bodies. There are many period pieces that are fiction that are still mildly educational about the era. Cowboys and Aliens is a movie, Django Unchained is actually a movie as well, but all of the 'high brows' think it's a film because it came out just in time to get a lot of attention from the Academy.

Apr 29 - 10:15 AM

Alex Maverick

Hipster Elitist Maverick

No shit, Michael. How long did it take you to figure out that I was comparing these movies because they're both "westerns"? I never hid that fact, you dipshit. And you can list off all the reasons why they are different and try to convince yourself that you're right. But you're not...and you know it.

Apr 29 - 02:33 PM

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm, one is about slavery, the other aliens?

Both fiction, yet one is criticized for not being factually correct. Try actually comprehending things before you respond, Gary.

Apr 30 - 04:39 PM

Brendan Sullivan

I wouldn't say their the same thing, because I would compare cowboys and aliens with John Carter. I get what you are saying and I would compare this movie to Godfather. Fictional movie that set in a realistic setting

Apr 30 - 11:29 PM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

Yeah, I'm 'wrong' for not liking this film. ALso, you're right, this is basically just a Cowboys and Aliens ripoff, you're such an educated film buff.

Hipster Elitist Maverick

Never said you were wrong for not liking this film, genius. But your reasons are bullshit.

Apr 30 - 04:38 PM

Yes, my personal reasons for not liking this film are bullshit. I'm very flattered that have such passionate concerns with my thoughts and feelings about this movie.

May 1 - 07:13 AM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

Brendan, comparing it to John Carter misses the mark. Cowboys and Aliens is a genre mashup, like Blade Runner (sci-fi/noir) or From Dusk Till Dawn (crime/horror) or Sukiyaki Western Django / Kung Fu Hustle (almost too obvious)

May 1 - 07:24 AM

Brendan Sullivan

Brendan Sullivan

It's a science fiction movie about Aliens in a Civil War time period. It's the same thing. Just because one is on mars and one is on earth doesn't mean they're different.

May 1 - 05:47 PM

Tim Boone

Tim Boone

Actually, both movies, Cowboys and Aliens, and Django Unchained are genre mashups. Cowboys and Aliens is a mashup of westerns and science fiction; Django Unchained is a mashup of (spaghetti)westerns and Blaxploitation.
While the Science Fiction aspect of Cowboys and Aliens may leave more room for over the top fantastical things than Blaxploitation does, in obvious ways, Blaxploitation and the Spaghetti Western are much heightened fiction styles, and both genres are painfully obviously far removed from reality. Yes, employing filmmaking techniques that provide a sense of realism during the more serious scenes is something that's happening in Django Unchained, and the Basic scenario and facts in the story, such as the whole slavery thing, those things are meant to be taken seriously, but generally, most of the moments in the film are obviously way over the top, cartoonish, and exaggerated, and it's plain as day that it is meant as an over the top, entertaining spectacle, with some very hard and painful truths at the heart of it, but when a movie is so clearly embracing the fantastical and paying homage to all these other movies and fluctuating in tone in such a colorful way, I just don't get it why people are bothered about the amount of realism or the lack thereof, in the picture..

May 3 - 08:46 AM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

I would agree with that for the most part. The realism doesn't bother me so much as the attention to detail. I'm gonna answer something from up above right here - Tarantino's 2nd cameo in the film. I feel that a Best Picture or a movie that scores above 90% in anyone's rating should be a near perfect representation of what the collaborators are getting across. His performance is like watching bad karaoke. It made me uncomfortable, but not in the 'good' ways that you experience in Film school with films by Kuchor or Ono or any of THAT horrible shit. Have you seen Sukiyaki Western Django? Tarantino's opening dialogue in that would completely ruin the film if it weren't for the fact that it stands apart from all of the rest of it and doesn't even appear to matter in the grand sceme of that one. Not exactly a masterpiece though. I would like to say that my harshness with this movie is because i LOVE Tarantino AND Waltz.

May 3 - 10:04 AM

Tim Boone

Tim Boone

Right on, I love Tarantino and Waltz as well, and I agree that Tarantino's role may have been more effective and less distracting if played by someone else, though I can't help but wonder if he wanted to do this cameo as an homage to Sergio Leone; In the opening titles of 'For a Few Dollars More', Sergio Leone's name appears and then gets 'shot away' and explodes into smithereens, if you recall(if you've seen the movie), and when Tarantino had himself get blown up, there's obviously no question he was paying homage to Leone here; I'm not sure if that was his sole reason for doing the cameo, but it's an interesting point to consider, if you haven't thought of it, though, acknowledging this likely won't make the performance more effective in your eyes, but still, it's something to consider. Which reminds me, I haven't heard anyone mention the other big Sergio Leone homage; the climax when Stephen is calling Django a "SON OF A.." with the "..BITCH" being covered up by the explosion, just like Tuco being interrupted while saying the same thing to Blondie on "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly"..

I'm ashamed to say, I haven't seen Sukiyaki Western Django. I'm a big fan of Takashi Miike, and a huge spaghetti western fan, but, again, I'm ashamed to say, I was following Sukiyaki Western Django before it even came out, and was looking forward to watching it, but at the time, although I was then a big spaghetti western fan, I had not yet seen the original Django, and I knew it likely wasn't essential to view before Sukiyaki, I preferred to watch Django first. Of course, I have seen the original Django since then, years ago, but I still haven't gotten around to watching Sukiyaki Western Django..

May 3 - 10:34 AM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

THANK YOU! I'm certain you're correct looking back and that's pretty bad ass. I was looking for broad Western themes like Leone stuff or Magnificent Seven and was a little upset to not see any of it. I finished The Dark Tower last summer and I loved how the back bone to many of the stories was very equal parts Fantasy and Western when boiled down to the thematic elements. This is why the entire stretch of Django and Candie traveling with the group was a little boring to me. The Dialogue was soooooo solid, but to me the whole movie comes to a halt and then the third act gets pretty weird I thought.

May 3 - 11:22 AM

Sam McCrea

Alex, I haven't responded to your remark because I have not seen that movie. However, I believe anachronisms, or let's just say any type of impossibility is acceptable only if it's an integral part of the premise/plot of the film. For example, in the 60's there was a movie made called "Time Machine." You know the one about a guy who sits on his sled and goes through time? I don't object to that, even though there has never been a working time machine. etc..

May 11 - 08:00 PM

Like everyone's been saying. It's a movie, second that's not the KKK, for more than half your argument you talk about rubush, 3rd you try to throw random star wars in there without giving any reasoning (for being as smart as you think you are you would think you wouldn't make a rookie mistake. Explain everything you say or at least hint at what your saying), and again your taking this too seriously. This is a movie and apparently you've need see one, because most action movies are way over the top. Don't watch an action movie if you're expecting a realitic movie. Do you know why your argument is invalid now? Now try and go around arguing against me like you've done for every comment I've said. P.S. you just did what I said in my last statement. Apparently you're not smart enough to know what a philosophy term is.
Here you go same. Here's the "hard comment" for you

Apr 25 - 06:51 PM

Sam M.

Sam McCrea

Brendan, okay, first of all I know it's a movie. That's kinda why I rated it. Second, for the HUNDREDTH time, I DON'T CARE. There is no historical reference/historical accuracy for the idiots wearing the potato sacks at that time period. THEREFORE I say it is an anachronism. I do not like anachronisms. I have explained this to you many times. Hopefully that will finally get this through your little head. What, do you need it in SPANISH? I'm glad to you know you think I'm smart. If you saw "Star-Wars" you would have noticed there is scene after scene where the evil Empire warriors would always miss when they attempted to shoot, say, Luke Skywalker. I used this merely as an example. Others abound. Your comment that I am taking this too seriously is baseless. I'll take this as seriously as I want, thank you very much. You imply that Django Unchained is an action movie. Is it? Because I am still not certain where its genre falls as I made clear in my review. It does not stick to a particular genre, premise or theme...and that sucks. No, I do not see why my argument is invalid now and I don't think you REALLY see it either...though I do see that you still suck at grammar and punctuation. I don't dislike all action movies; I loved Dirty Harry. I don't dislike all films that are unrealistic: I loved Ferris Bueller's Day Off. It's not like the words "Save Ferris" would really be written on the screen at a Chicago Cubs game. However, in both of those films, the fantastical elements FIT the premises of the film. OKAY??? One other thing; would you please stop pretentiously talking about a "philosophy term" and about how I should know what one is? Look, you're cute and I think it's great you passed a freshmen philosophy class but seriously: GET OVER YOURSELF.

Apr 26 - 07:21 PM

Brendan Sullivan

Brendan Sullivan

if you don't realize that this movies fails into two categories than you don't watch movies that much. It falls into action/adventure and drama which is quite obvious. It's a fictional movies that's set in a realistic setting. It doesn't have to be historically accurate. You've never heard of Godfather. Same thing a fictional movie set in a realistic setting. Also, the Star Wars example is so retarded. There's tons of reasons why those shots miss, but I'm not going to get into that. We're not talking about that movie. Also, a person makes fun of someone else's grammar because they feel insecure.Next how doesn't "fantastical elements fit this movie"? Like I said before its an action movie and its suppose to be over the top with things like bullets missing as being normal for the movie. Last note is important. You are taking this too seriously. You come onto a movie rating website to scream out your ideas of a movie that most people loved. You then try and through your ideas out like a man on a mission to get people on here to get angry of your post. You succeed at that point you did get me angry. Now just grow up and go back to your "meaningful" arguments of movies that are well liked. You believe that you know what you're talking about when you don't realize is your arguments are invalid. When someone points those flaws out you try and rip their grammar or hit them personally. You're probably going to say it's not true, but there's like 100 people on here that will back me up. Now I'm done with you because I've said my peace and "preached" my thoughts and yet you give me garage like the comment you just did. P.S. forgot to say. You can't tell someone to "GET OVER YOURSELF" when you try and flaunt how smart you are almost every comment you post. Congrats your a thesaurus writer. Now fuck off and go back to pretending to be cool. Tool!

Historical inaccuracies can be awesome. Basterds was inspired and awesome! This wasn't inventive or interesting to me at all in the sense that I ever wanted to see the civil rights movement portrayed in this way, I wasn't bothered about the in accuracies of the Klan thing happening, that was among my favorite scenes really. The fat that Aussies, Germans and German speaking slaves were happening in this reality to this small group of people in the deep south reeeeeeally bothered me. I want to believe that these people could realistically know each other geographically. This was Michael Parks worst role ever.

Apr 27 - 10:13 AM

Your arguments make no sense to me Michael Weiss. And yes, it is an action movie lol, how is it not? And Michael Parks' worst role?

Michael Weiss

There were no action sequences with any inventiveness, he's taken to absurd action shots that happen in an instant. Watch Candie's sister get shot with the sound off. I love 2pac too and thought his song in it was horribly placed and ridiculous, like the whole soundtrack to A Knight's Tale.

Apr 28 - 05:48 PM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

As for the historical accuracy, I don't need it, but this seemed like a movie where he only bent reality enough for Christoph Waltz to play a significant role in a story that takes place in this part of the world at this time. That's just about all this movie seemed like to me personally. I like Christoph Waltz a lot too, I'm also a huge Tarantino fan, both reasons make me dislike this movie even more passionately.

Apr 28 - 05:55 PM

Tim Boone

Tim Boone

In other words, I think, what you're getting at, is that you think it was too much of a stretch to have a character like Waltz in this story. My question is: how does that seem implausible, at all? Have there not been Many European immigrants coming to the states? You have got to be kidding me. I don't understand your logic here at all, but maybe I'm misunderstanding what you're saying.

May 3 - 08:51 AM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

It's not that he's German, it's that they add Foxx's wife's character as German speaking which is just a plot device to bring Waltz along to Candieland. Like the guy on the plane in Die Hard that tells him to make 'fists with your toes.' Can't he just be barefoot for any of the billions of reasons to be barefoot? It all fits so neatly into place. One thing I haven't mentioned is that they big up Candieland to be this awful and dangerous place for Django (which it kinda is...) but then he seems like a pig in shit walking around anywhere he wants right away. I was stoked when I thought they were infiltrating enemy territory, then it seemed to be the safest place for a black cowboy to hang out in the Deep South.

You fail to see what I typed. You typed 'arguement' and most recently 'your' instead of 'you're.' I would say that's about the same as 'their' in place of 'they're' and it's just hard to see without cringing. You're so smart because you have the answer to why this is such a great movie, Tim up there has some valid ARGUMENTS and you just resort to name calling and insults with very piss poor spelling, punctuation and grammar in general. It's not an argument really just an observation and a request to make your posts a little more readable if you want to be taken seriously at all. To say someones 'gay' and that everything is 'retarded' is pretty pathetic and childish. Are you an actual child?

May 11 - 06:20 AM

'I wouldn't say their the same thing, because I would compare cowboys and aliens with John Carter. I get what you are saying and I would compare this movie to Godfather. Fictional movie that set in a realistic setting ' Do you see where you placed 'their in place of they're?'

May 11 - 07:40 AM

Brendan Sullivan

Brendan Sullivan

Ok, first of all I probably did that maybe once. Second, I don't care about grammar because frankly only about 5% of people with high level jobs don't have very well done grammar. Also, I know I put your at parts of you're because I'm typing so fast and I don't go over it. I don't go over because like I said before it's a discussion board and frankly I don't care. If I was going over it for a college essay I would have done it better. Also, I call him "gay" and "stupid" because that's frankly what he does. Next, I do have valid arguments. I have about a whole paragraph of why his argument is invalid, so I don't know what you're trying to say when I going say insults. Lastly, I know what I did, but don't care. I'm not going to go over it again.

May 13 - 06:46 PM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

An argument about personal preference is only wrong to the person on the other side of it. Your opinion is that he's wrong, mine is that he is not. Invalid is a bit of a technical word for something like this and really is only 'invalid' to you so once again, it's a matter of opinion. Whatever I haven't covered would probably be because the points you were making otherwise were not readable and very haphazardly written without proper spelling or structure, as per usual.

May 14 - 10:37 AM

Brendan Sullivan

Brendan Sullivan

Ok, just shut up about the grammar thing. You're just being an asshole now and you can read the shit perfectly fine. Now, invalid might not be the right word. The better word would be flawed. I don't care about his opinion of the movie. He can dislike it all he wants, but when your reasonings behind the opinion are stupid, it makes him sound ignorant and therefore his argument is invalid.

May 17 - 08:48 AM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

I'll tell you what sounds ignorant and stupid; "..I don't know what you're trying to say when I going say insults." 'Stupid' is a dismissive word of someone with no vocabulary. See less movies, read more books.

May 17 - 11:58 AM

Brendan Sullivan

Brendan Sullivan

first of all you're stupid because here's the defintion of stupid http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/stupid.
It has nothing to do with vocabulary, so I don't know where you're getting your source. Second, you're telling me that my grammar is so bad that I'm stupid because of it. Even though I'm averaging a 3.5 in writing classes in college. Right? Makes sense.

May 17 - 02:19 PM

Michael Weiss

Michael Weiss

Dismissive in the sense that it says nothing really, which it doesn't. Stop trying to suddenly sound smarter, it doesn't suit you. Again, you should read more books and broaden your vocab. You like to call people 'stupid' and 'gay.' Instead of looking up 'stupid' which is stupid, (hah!) look up 'dismissive.' In the sense that I mean, it's a short cut for a word that you don't know. 'Like I said before. You can an opinion, but when those reasonings behind the opinion are flawed then I have a problem.' -has to be my favorite post in here. What a bizarre empty threat.

May 17 - 02:35 PM

Brendan Sullivan

Brendan Sullivan

I'm done with you because frankly I'm not here to talk to some pathetic guy who tries to make it seem like he's smarter than me when you're clearly not. First of all, grammar doesn't determine how smart of a person is. A dumbass would have comprehended what I said there.Second, comprehend what i said in that quote because apparently you have no idea what I was saying there. I could have said "Same is a fucktard who's opinion has not valid argument behind it and you're idiotic for agreeing with him". Did you want me to say that. Also, what are you talking about an empty threat. Did I ever threat you in that whole quote. No I didn't. Now, you're wrong when you said "instead of looking up 'stupid which is stupid, (hah!)"(child comment). I wasn't looking it up for me, but for you because apparently you don't know the real definition of stupid so I showed you. Lastly, I'm already smart and the reasoning behind my 'stupidity'or whatever you seem to think out me is because of my grammar. My grammar! Really, I guarantee people who are a thousand times smarter suffer from grammar problems. Also, I'm not trying to be smart because I already I'm. At least I know the definition of what stupid is. P.S. I almost forgot "you can an opinion" is the best grammar I've ever seen. Now fuck off.

May 17 - 09:23 PM

Hey Brennan - 'You can an opinion, but when those reasonings behind the opinion are flawed then I have a problem.' That was YOUR quote, copied and pasted, oh the irony!

when was this quote? in my first paragraph. Get over with it already. This quote right here is what I really said " Now, invalid might not be the right word. The better word would be flawed.

Hey Sambo, being that any-retentive cannot be much fun. The 'comic relief' as you deem it, seems only to have bothered uber-anal types like you who look for any and every reason to knock movies/books/tv series, etc. cuz it makes you feel smart and useful. You get a little hard-on, don't you, when that uptight brain you sorta use sees something you decide doesn't fit your idea of what you are viewing/reading. Django is a movie, not a documentary, and therefore anything can happen in it. Those same words were written by a Pulitzer prize winner in criticism, someone vastly more qualified to speak on film than yourself. Your lack of knowledge of those who predated the clan is your own shortcoming. And to call this movie 'serious historical fiction' makes me wonder wtf you consider 'The Deerhunter' or 'Full Metal Jacket'.

Uber-anal, huh? I suppose anything CAN happen in a film but films are often rated on the basis of historical accuracy and plausibility. My hard-on is not little, by the way.

The film doesn't have to be 100% accurate. The Klansmen inaccuracy was, in my opinion, a very small thing and it shouldn't have made anyone think that Django Unchained turned into a Mel Brooks film. That's Quentin Tarantino. He blends action and humor along with his other famous trademarks and he does it without his films becoming tedious or smug. Didn't you see Inglorious Basterds (another amazing film)? The climactic scene was of Adolf Hitler and Joseph Goebbels, along with most of Hitler's high command, being gunned down in a burning movie theater. As you all know, both Hitler and Goebbels died by their own hand in real life, but QT changed history in his notorious Tarantinoverse by letting the second World War end with the Third Reich burn down along with that theater. Was that so wrong? It's his universe, not ours. With that pivotal moment happening towards the end of Inglorious Basterds, you should've already known that QT changes history a little bit. And besides, one small thing like historical inaccuracy shouldn't change your opinion about the whole film just like that. You have to look at the other set pieces of the movie, like performances and the story. Then maybe you'll figure out that this film ain't so bad after all. It fact, it's pretty amazing.

Apr 24 - 12:14 AM

Sam McCrea

Put it this way: did you ever see Ocean's 11? Remember that scene where, when you least expected it, the remote control didn't work and George Clooney just says "check the batteries" and Matt Damon chides him about making one little mistake. I thought that scene was just brilliant. So unexpected, so funny, and with such a genuine human element. However, the anachronistic Klansmen (or the regulators or whatever you want to call them, the point is they didn't exist) is truly an anachronism and is therefore devoid of that human element. I also happen to think it's just not funny. Their conversation struck me as lame.

Apr 24 - 08:19 PM

Ben Thompson

Ben Thompson

You do have a point about the human element thing. But like I said, you have appreciate the other set pieces of this film, especially the performances of Leonardo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz. And also, if you're talking about accuracy, then you shouldn't have a problem with the scenes showing how brutally the black slaves were treated back then, because those so-called "unwatchable" scenes were the problem for most people.

But did he ever say they were the KKK, no we as an audience or some of the audience I should say assumed it, but it was never said or claimed to be the KKK within the film, just an assumption by folks.

I have responded to comments like this before but I'll say it again: I really don't think there is any historical allocation for white bigots to ride around on horses with potato sacks on their heads before the KKK was formed.

But you make a broad assumptions and when you make an assumption you make an ass out of you and umption. (must thank SLJ for that quote)

Like I said in another reply no one in the film during the running time of the film said they were the KKK, It was the audience who assumed, therefore making asses of themselves this was in fact the KKK.

Slice it and dice it all you want SAM, but show me, via a running time mark where in the film they were said by any character to be the KKK

I have a comment about the genre changes that you mention. This has actually been a topic that my brother and I have discussed about Tarantino films for about a year now. When watching a Tarantino film, it almost seems impossible to look at it through the lens of one genre. None of his movies (aside from maybe Reservior Dogs) truly stick to one genre. This is because each film weaves through many different genres, following the flow of Tarantino's crazy, albeit amazing, mind. In fact, I would even go so far as to say that Tarantino deserves his own genre of film, due to the uniqueness of his filmmaking. I mean, it is incredibly hard to compare Django to another western, drama, comedy, or action flick. You simply have to view it as an extremely messed up, over the top Tarantino film.

Apr 21 - 07:10 PM

Sam M.

Sam McCrea

I think it's interesting the way you say Tarantino deserves his own genre. I do not disagree. I think a film-maker can make their own genre and that particular genre should grow from the fundamental premise of the film. However, I think Django Unchained either lacks premise or deviates from the premise it has.

Oh my goodness poor free thinking people can't stand for anyone else to have an opinion different than theirs. So what he doesn't like the movie; neither do I. Does that send you all into spastic fits or something. If a white man made a movie in which he beat a black man and then stated on the media that he got great pleasure out of acting out beating a black man like Jamie Foxx did the media and all of you so called free thinking people would go ballistic but is has become politically correct for people to discriminate and be prejudiced against whites even for those free thinking whites. I have many black friends but prejudice is wrong no matter who it comes from. Anyway the movie was very historically off. But you people need to get a life those of you who cannot stand for someone to have a diff opinion than you without having a cardiac

Like you should have read in the comments. It's a movie not a documentary and you and him are taking it way too seriously. Second, his facts are wrong, because that wasn't suppose to be the KKK and they were just trying to make fun of what the people in the KKK were. I do argue with you about Jamie Foxx he should have shut his mouth and if it was the other way around this would be a different confersation we would be having. It's not that he had a different opinion of the movie it's his argument was invalid. It would be like a person saying that he/she hates superman, because a person in real life can't fly

The documentary thing you keep repeating is just stupid. Fiction can be fantasy, but remain appealing. This is historical fantasy, which is a new thing. Like Steampunk, it blends things together in an absurd way. Keep faulting people for OPINIONS (which cannot be 'wrong') and calling people gay. You are a child.

Tim Boone

I agree with your first line, Frances, and I respect your opinion.
I do disagree with your second point;it's a complicated issue, to be sure, but I don't think it has anything to do with black or white; no matter the races involved, under these particular circumstances(a whole race of people oppressed and abused for centuries)and race or group of people would feel bitter about it, especially if it's a subject that's been largely ignored, like this one. That doesn't mean that racism towards white people is justified; racism towards any race of people is equally immoral and despicable, and so I agree with you that, yes, prejudice is wrong no matter who it comes from, there's no denying that. There's also no denying what happened in history. It is what it is, and it's unfortunate for all parties involved, but if you look at the facts, you can't deny there's an understandable need for a sense of retribution of sorts. Now, I'm actually unaware of what Jamie Foxx said about this, but my opinion on some of the things you said still stands, but I will seek out Jamie Foxx's quote.
As far as the movie being historically off, well, I'm of the opinion that with a clearly over-the-top stylish type of cartoonish movie like this, I think you are viewing the movie in a context it wasn't meant to be experienced in; it's painfully obvious to me that this movie made it perfectly clear that it is not meant to be taken too seriously in many aspects(such as the cartoonish comical violence and the general exaggerated spectacle of it all; it's meant to play almost like a 'legend' or fairytale), but if you acknowledge this and the anachronisms still bother you anyway, it's obviously just not your thing, and who am I, or anyone, to question your opinion or your taste in movies?(not sarcasm,in case it happens to seem that way)MHO, peace ^_^

Thanks Frences. Brendan, how many times do I have to explain this? I DON'T REALLY CARE WHAT THEY WERE CALLED, the point is that people like the probably did not exist at that time period, therefore I say it's an anachronism. Your last sentence could not be more wrong. Why? Because superman belongs to the GENRE of comic book heroes. So yes, he can fly. However, if Superman went back in time to the 17th-century and there were people using fax machines and cellular phones, I would say THAT is a big anachronism and is unacceptable.

Definitely.It goes both ways, and I don't know who said what first or whatever, but I agree with you, it's ridiculous when people start attacking each other personally like this. I get it, I know people are passionate about their opinions about this movie, as am I, but after all, it is just a movie, and I think being compassionate towards another person is more important than expressing your passion for something you enjoy just because somebody doesn't also enjoy it. Live and let live :) I don't mean to be a hypocrite, because everyone, including myself, has overreacted at one point or another, but I don't think any movie is worth becoming personal enemies with someone over.

Chase: The Lost Trollfighter

I think I know what's going on here and I'm disappointed that I wasn't able to pick up on it earlier. Sam, I don't think you're a troll. I wish you were because the alternative frightens me.

You're a well educated man who (if that's you in the photograph) appears to be in exceptional physical condition. I bring this up because you are clearly vain and you want everyone to know it. I'm a firm believer in "live and let live." If that's what you're all about, then that's fine. Who am I to judge? However, by drawing that conclusion, I can only become suspicious of you.

Sam, you're the most arrogant poster on RT and you may construe that as a compliment. I assure you it is not. There's something missing in your life. You may have a lot of money, perhaps a beautiful girlfriend, and a stellar intellect, but something is missing. There's a hole in your life. Perhaps there are many holes. Perhaps you choose to fill these holes by signing up to a website and ranting about a film that you did not care for. Perhaps you fill these holes by participating in altercations with all who disagree with your pretentious tirades. I've seen you act pious with teenagers in this very thread. You even went so far as to pull out your "internet muscles." You actually said, "say it to my face and I'll make you even uglier." I don't have to tell you how many things I find wrong with that comment. You stooped to the low intellect that you so angrily condemn. You said that to a teenager, Sam. How old are you? What's missing in your life, Sam? You pretend to be smarter and more mature than everyone in this thread but in actuality, you're scared. What are you scared of? You might as well just come clean and tell us because you just proved to the world that you're nothing more than a hollow shell of a man. You threatened a tennager over the internet, Sam. How does that make you feel? If that's what it takes to help you get through your day, then you are the most pathetic excuse for a man I've ever encountered. I hope you find whatever is missing in your life. Have a good day.

Make your sarcastic comments all you want but you know it's true. I'm glad you think I should get my own radio show. Look, Sam, I'm cocky too. I'll even go so far as to say that if we ever crossed paths without having this discussion, we might very well be friends. I get along with people like you and I relate to them. The reason is because we all have holes in our lives. I'm cocky because I've been burnt in the past by individuals close to me. I'm man enough to admit my faults. Are you?

John Anderson

I agree with Sam, but for different reasons. DeCaprio lost points for his lackluster and unconvincing performance. He looks like a boy and acts like one, but the role demands an older and more sophisticated southern gent. The film can't make up it's mind about whether it's about bad white people or the institution of slavery. Gore seems to be the greater emphasis than a plot that should have terminated 40 minutes sooner than it did.

Apr 18 - 08:18 PM

Tim Boone

Tim Boone

Well, I respect your take on the film, but I disagree; I agree that DiCaprio's character(Calvin Candie)acts boyish, but I think that was intentional, in fact, Tarantino has talked about this and said so himself. Apparently he wrote the part for a slightly older Southern gentleman, but when he cast DiCaprio, he re-evaluated what the role should be, and he decided it would be good to have him this spoiled type of man-child that's never had to lift a finger, and I think DiCaprio hit the nail right on the head, and so, I guess we're in agreement in a way, it's just that I think you misunderstood Dicaprio's/Tarantino's interpretation of the character. As far as whether the film is about bad white people or the institution of slavery, I mean, I don't follow, the two go hand in hand. Maybe you feel the movie wasn't consistent in one area or another, but it's unclear to me what you're specifically complaining about there, and I think those two elements fit like a glove, of course.
And I don't agree that 'gore' was the main emphasis. I don't think anyone who gave the movie reasonable consideration whatsoever can possibly deny the depth and powerful emotion in this movie. It was very graphic, yes, enough to call it 'gory', and Tarantino recently said he thinks it's the goriest western since the Wild Bunch, and I agree, and that aspect has always reminded me of the Wild Bunch, but anyway, I know it's really graphic, and much of the violence is over the top and cartoonish, but I don't think anyone in their right minds could deny the overwhelming emotional power of it's more serious scenes, especially the violent ones, that's some very intense, powerful stuff. So, I think the movie, while a celebration of b movies and genre movies like all Tarantino's films, it is obviously a very substantial and very powerful film.
As far as the movie being overly long, I can see how this would be a problem with many people. I personally think Tarantino pretty much can do no wrong and I'm a big fan so I love all of it, though, speaking of the Wild Bunch, I was honestly hoping for a big climactic shootout at the end or something, but, at the same time, that would have just been plowing over the same old material again, and it would have been satisfying for a minute but ultimately more forgettable, so I'm glad it turned out the way it did.
Anyway, MHO..peace

In the movie they never say that they're part of the Ku Klux Klan, if you were actually watching they hint at this is the first appearance of the Ku Klux Klan. Lastly you have no idea what your talking about do you? Just because the movie is critically acclaimed (and for good reason) doesn't mean it's overrated. I'd have no problem if you found an actual reason to dislike the movie but you don't. So to me you just sound like an unintelligent, and immature asshole.

Apr 18 - 04:45 PM

Sam M.

Sam McCrea

So they weren't the Ku Klux Klan but they hinted they were the Ku Klux Klan... Kid, seriously, do even YOU know what you are trying to say here? Also, I am aware a movie is not automatically overrated just because it is critically acclaimed. However, are YOU AWARE that a movie doesn't deserve accolades just because YOU say it's "for a good reason?" Practice what you preach, man. One other thing, I DID find an "actual reason" to dislike the movie. I found a few; that's kinda what my review was about. Things like anachronisms and and genre changes, you know? So I guess now you have no problem, right?

Apr 18 - 09:59 PM

Sumner Strickland

I'm sorry I did misstep at the beginning, what I meant to say that this was the first appearance of the bag heads. And yeah I loved the film because I loved the story, the writing and above all the performances were outstanding, that was just my opinion. And no you didn't, you just said said that you had a problem with Tarantino. Genre changes and anachronisms are what Tarantino does and if you didn't know that before going into the film then it's your fault for going in and not understanding what you're in for.

Apr 22 - 04:41 PM

I am merely pointing out that you're a coward and I'll bet you really WOULDN'T say that to my face if I were ever so unfortunate as to meet up with you. I'll also bet you're naive enough to think these remarks faze me. In case you haven't figured it out yet, I respect intellect. You don't have any.

I appreciate your passion for this movie though Brendan. I'm mostly telling Sam McCunt to stop trying to provoke fans of this film.

Brendan Sullivan

Brendan Sullivan

because it's funny to watch him try and make us believe hes'some smart and cool individual. In reality his premise is false, he's a political dumbass,etc. His argument against me will be something like he's said before. A comment that he thinks is clever, but just idiotic

Apr 13 - 09:29 PM

Sam M.

Sam McCrea

Yo Frank, can you at least TRY to be an adult? You're not in 5th grade anymore. I love how I'm "trying to provoke" fans of this movie. I've said it before, I guess I gotta say it again: the purpose of this website is to share opinions about movies, whether the opinions are popular or not. If you don't like my opinions you are free to not read them. However, nobody, I repeat NOBODY on this website has said anything that really convinces me that my opinions are wrong. Oh, Brendan Sullivan and Hollis Mills, FYI: if you REALLY DO want to show me I am wrong, saying stuff like "what a dumb fuck" and "political dumbass" won't cut it. You have both said next to nothing about the movie itself. The only really interesting remark I've heard was Tim Jordan's. Oh but Brendan, I think it's very interesting that you would mention "premise." Have you been reading Lajos Egri like I suggested?

Apr 17 - 10:31 PM

Jeff Parker said the same exact thing that Tim said, so I don't know why it took you so long to acknowledge it.

If you were really that smart you would know that's a philosophy "term". also I've provided you with evidence why your comment is invalid, but you tend to not see it.

Such as?

Apr 18 - 10:08 PM

Brendan Sullivan

Brendan Sullivan

Like everyone's been saying. It's a movie, second that's not the KKK, for more than half your argument you talk about rubush, 3rd you try to throw random star wars in there without giving any reasoning (for being as smart as you think you are you would think you wouldn't make a rookie mistake. Explain everything you say or at least hint at what your saying), and again your taking this too seriously. This is a movie and apparently you've need see one, because most action movies are way over the top. Don't watch an action movie if you're expecting a realitic movie. Do you know why your argument is invalid now? Now try and go around arguing against me like you've done for every comment I've said. P.S. you just did what I said in my last statement. Apparently you're not smart enough to know what a philosophy term is.

First of all, the 'klansmen', as others have mentioned, were not even supposed to be the KKK, they were preceded by the KKK, they were 'the Regulators'. As far as skipping around in different genres, that's what Tarantino has Always done, every one of his movies is paying homage to various genres, and All of his movies after the nineties have had a fluctuating tone(in a good way, IMO), and it wasn't during this klan scene that this happened in, the tone fluctuated all throughout the entire movie, and not out of sloppiness, out of an exhilarating explosion of filmmaking exuberance, Tarantino taking us on a movie roller coaster ride. Even the tone of the violent scenes varies, some of the violence is meant to be comical and cartoonish, some is meant to be cathartic, and some of it is meant to be downright disturbing and traumatizing, as Tarantino has said as much himself(but even if he didn't it's plain as day to see, just watch the movie).
Your reasoning and logic are poor and inaccurate, and it seems to me you just don't like the movie for some social or political reason or something, or Tarantino's movies just aren't your thing, and I respect your opinion, but the particular things you are saying just hold no water, your arguments here are completely unfounded and invalid.

Apr 8 - 09:35 AM

Exactly..finally someone explains it. It's a Tarantino film. You either get it or you don't. He can take you from a high tension verbal battle of the wits one second, then jump to a ridiculously gory (and over the top) bloodbath of a gunfight. How he's able to weave this different moments together is what makes him special.

Gabe, I understand he made it his way. I didn't like his way. Genres should be consistent in a film. Oh and Brendan, I love the way you say you wouldn't even argue...as if you haven't.

your litterally try and believe that your some smart person that knows all the secrets of the world, but yet you just afraid stupid son of a bitch that sits at his computer, and tries to through his knowledge around.

Sam McCrea

Tom, that is a good question. I did not see that film. I liked Argo. Also, I'm glad that Anna Karenina was made into a film just because it inspired me to read the book; which I did. I then watched the movie and thought it was most unusual. For what it's worth I'll say one thing though: that Keira Knightley is one beautiful woman.

Apr 10 - 11:02 PM

why do you watch movies if you want complete accuracy. It wasn't suppose to be accurate it was suppose to be entertaining.

True. I enjoyed "Finding Nemo" even though I know that clown fish can't swim to dental offices in Australia in search of their long-lost sons. Again, it's that whole genre issue. You know, you ought to read "The Art of Dramatic Writing" by Lajos Egri. Or any book for that matter.

then you're an idiot, because you stated earlier that you can't "an argument is not "invalid" just because you don't like it". It's invalid, so that's why I don't like it

Brendan, with all due respect, you can't even seem to write a grammatically correct sentence yet you're telling me you've written some incisive, penetrating argument against me. Guess what?

Dear Dylan, sarcasm is hard to detect over the web. If you really meant the "nice job" line then you understand this conversation better than Brendan and Alex put together. If you're trying to rip on me, then this is an INCREDIBLE irony. For what it's worth, I've never insulted anybody's name or profile pic. After all, just their comments give me plenty of fodder.

Apr 17 - 10:48 PM

You called Alex's name "keyboard gibberish". I think that's supposed to be an insult. Or am I wrong?

Apr 18 - 01:15 PM

I did not call Alex's name anything. I was referring to something HE said on another page which I commented on. I think it was the one called "Will watching Django Unchained make me Gay?" but I wouldn't swear to it.

Apr 18 - 10:30 PM

Sergio Django

Sergio Django

well.you obviously are quite messed up man
1)There was no actual Klan reference to the film.Actually,to me at least,Tarantino quite aptly portrayed the exact roots of the Klan,the base of racism-and at the same time,with subcutaneous humor,the real stupidity on it's very existance(the potato sack scene you mentioned)
-2)The "unrealistic Hollywood"shooting are targeting EXACTLY in being sarcastic about the Hollywood "violence"-from the westerns to The Expendables of Hollywood productions
3)To me,it's these "genre changes" which characterise the depth and artistic-and multiple leveled-eye of Tarantino in this film
4)get your act together and re-watch it

Mar 31 - 03:18 PM

Sam M.

Sam McCrea

Hey man, whatever floats your boat. Still, I wonder what it is OBJECTIVELY that you believe makes this portrayal so apt. By the way, you misspelled "existence" and "its" as the latter should have been in the possessive.

Apr 10 - 11:41 PM

Sam M.

Sam McCrea

Oh one other thing: I'm glad to know that TO YOU these genre changes "characterize the depth and artistic and multiple leveled-eye of Tarantino in this film."

It's interesting how much vitriole your review stirred up. Obviously some Tarantino acolytes out there feel some serious emotional attachment to this movie. My 10c worth- I see where you're coming from Sam McCrea, historical accuracy matters to me and this pastiche of lurid bits and pieces of fact and fiction is somehow offensive to my sensibilities. Nevertheless ... it's 'art', and with that goes all the poetic license you need to perpetrate shocking distortions of historical fact for the purpose of courting controversy and selling movie tickets.

Dear Chase Nyland, how was I supposed to know writing a paragraph would be considered a serious effort? I can type 70wpm. I think a serious effort would be something like when I earned a master's degree, or scored a 1350 on the GRE or when I passed Vector Calculus. Y'all have to admit, that's pretty good for a retarded six year old. Oh, and I suggest reading the following Paul Kersey article from V-dare, my favorite web-zine: http://www.vdare.com/articles/django-unchained-the-birth-of-a-new-nation

Mar 25 - 01:34 PM

Chase The Lost

Chase: The Lost Trollfighter

Yes! I get my own paragraph!

All of your "achievements" and "skills" mean absolutely nothing to me. All you're truly accomplishing is further proving my theory that you're a cocky little fuck. I could go on and on about my profession and exceptional education but I'd rather keep that to myself because it's none of anyone's concern. Unless, I so desperately seeked attention that I would fully disclose all of my obtainments but that arrogant behavior is out of character for me. More importantly, it has absolutely nothing to do with the topic at hand. Therefore, going back to my original point, all of your verbose efforts to impress are irrelevant. You dissliked the film because it was incongruent with history. Tough shit. Look at Inglourious Basterds. Do you really think Adolf Hitler died in a burning theater? Of course not. It's a fucking movie and it never promised to be based off of actual events, so lighten up and get off your high horse.

You cocky. little. fuck.

Mar 25 - 02:11 PM

Sam M.

Sam McCrea

The meat of your statement contains 12 sentences. My responses to them are: 1) You did call me a dimwit. And what's with the pretentious quotation marks? 2) That isn't nice. 3) So you mention your "Exceptional education," but then you want to keep it to yourself? Btw, THAT is when quotation marks make sense. 4) I get the feeling it's NOT out of character for you. 5-6) NO argument there. I didn't call you a dimwit. 7) Yeah! You get it!! I also thought it was too long, kinda boring, Leonardo DiCaprio's accent got on my nerves. Though I think the plot, in and of itself, had potential. 8) Uh, okay. Profanity is used by a feeble mind trying to express itself with power. 9-10) No, he committed suicide. Though I thought the opening scene for that film was brilliantly acted. 11-12) You know, maybe I'm just not too crazy about Tarantino's films for the most part. And maybe that's okay. You're not gonna die just because somebody has a differing opinion. You're going to live. It's okay. Nice periods in the end, by the way.

Jeff Parker: In response to your 3-15 reply. I recently read "Chesapeake" and "Texas" by James A. Michener. He is my favorite author and I believe one of the greatest historical fiction writers of all time. I love his work. I also got a 4 on the AP American History Exam, I have always lived in the south, and have known and loved many older-generation southern aristocrats. I also volunteered as a docent at the "Historic Haile Homestead" in Gainesville, Florida, which was once a plantation. I readily admit that history is ALWAYS a best guess. Still, for you to say I have "no idea" what I'm talking about is not exactly fair. One other thing: your last sentence is not a question, it's a statement. Oh and Brendan Sullivan: I have not seen watchmen. What's it about?

Lmao wow, that took some serious effort. Good for you! You got so butthurt that you decided to address most of us by name! Sam, you're a pretentious dimwit. Pat yourself on the back for all of your achievements that no one cares about. Even though I'm not entirely educated on the topic of 19th century Southern slavery, I do know that I'm not going to use some inaccurate elements of a film in my final conclusion of the film's quality unless it promises a true story. Tarantino did not. You're out of your element, you cocky little fuck.

Dylan Jones: Aw come on. If I didn't respond, people like you, Brendan Sullivan and Lee Augustus couldn't feel all smug calling me a "total bullshit tasteless conservatard..."

Samuel, sir, the point isn't about finding The Regulators in a history textbook. The point is that Tarantino already knew that the bag heads weren't the KKK and said so, and here you were bashing him for not doing research when it is in fact you that didn't read and find out before criticizing, that Tarantino already knew that those men were not the KKK.

Mar 30 - 03:42 AM

It's like, you want to make a scene fit into a plot even though it doesn't. So you try to gloss it over and make it fit...but it doesn't. 20 lashes for a filmmaker who does such things.

Apr 24 - 09:15 PM

Rami Nawfal

Rami Nawfal

This scene was to show how ignorant racist bigots acted at the time, and Tarantino managed to do that in a hilarious way too. Just because he gave us some comic relief in a movie that takes place in a serious era, he deserves 20 lashes? This is ridiculous, and you sound very, very pretentious. And judging by your other posts you're pretty arrogant to boot.

The entire scene including whom you yourself have denoted as being "Klan" members is supposed to represent the start-up or roots of the KKK, hence the potato sacks instead of traditional Klan attire. It is not Mr. Tarantino's, but your facts that need checking.

Mar 16 - 10:50 AM

Sam M.

Sam McCrea

Mr. Nyland, of course I've seen Tarantino films before as I mentioned "Pulp Fiction" in my commentary. I also saw "Kill Bill" which also sucked. JEFF PARKER: Unless there is historical evidence that there was, in fact, a "prelude" to the KKK prior to the Civil War, it's still an anachronism. I really don't think there were any racists wandering around with potato sacks on their heads prior to Lee's surrender at Appomattox. Why would there have been? Remember, since the blacks had no rights and the whites could do whatever they pleased to these people, is there any reason the whites would have felt the need to conceal their identity in such a situation? Also, I've always been under the impression the old-south aristocracy was really big on being polite and, particularly, being delicate towards women. Women weren't supposed to see anything gross. So, instructing a slave woman to unzip her dress and reveal her nasty scars at the dinner table while a lady is eating there strikes me as unrealistic. Tarantino just didn't do his homework.

Mar 14 - 08:21 PM

Jeff P.

Jeff Walken

And you are basing this off of...what? You've given no evidence to support any of your claims. All you've said is "I don't think this" and "I don't think that", which leads me to ask the question: You clearly don't have any idea of what you're talking about so why do you pretend like you do?

Mar 15 - 02:29 PM

Chase The Lost

Chase: The Lost Trollfighter

Sam, I was being snide. You've clearly seen other Tarantino films which is why I'm so confused. If you're familiar with Tarantino's work, why would it surprise you that Django was a little outlandish? And if you don't like that sort of thing, why go see it? But more importantly, why bitch about it? You're so self absorbed that you decided to spew nonsense in your pretentious analysis of something you clearly don't know anything about.

How the hell did Kill Bill suck???? It had awesome violence, a great soundtrack, a very well one story, great dialogue, and a touching ending in Vol. 2. Sorry I had to say it.

Uma Thurman, who's pry a buck ten, beating up large, muscular men by the dozen. I know everyone's gonna be incensed but it's just a bit too fantastical for me. I honestly would have liked it better if she first drank some magical potion.

Tarantino knew that the KKK wasn't formed yet in that period. That's why you never hear the name "Ku Klux Klan" in that scene. The whole thing was supposed to be like a prelude to the KKK. It was a group of racist men who wore some cheap bags on their heads. But, we see that the bags turned out to be poorly made. These were the people (in the movie universe) who formed the official KKK after the Civil War.

Yes - The men in hoods organised by Big Daddy represent a group known as "The Regulators" - spiritual forebears of the later post-civil war KKK formed in 1865. Tarantino knew this Sam.

Okay, just show me where I can find any information about these people (Wikipedia, whatever) and I'll apologize for the remark.

Look under the the section labeled "Historical Inaccuracies"

That should take care of it.
