Okay I just saw the movie today and I fricken loved every minute of it even the first 25 minutes I missed.One of the best of 2012 slightly edging out Looper,Dark Knight Rises,and The Avengers for me atm...I was literally on the edge of my seat the whole film.The whole cast k!lled it! Especially Leo,Waltz,and Jackson.....Man Jackson...his character had me through the whole movie....now no homo when I ask this but as for your post at what point was J.Foxx fully nud3? was it [spoiler - register to view] Im asking for a friend.

nice try though

the movie was great. I've read worse things about slavery and racism than what was in the movie.

Black power #### the racist white man

I saw the movie last night. And i can say I was NOT offended one bit. As a black man seeing some of the things portrayed in this movie that actually took place in real life made you feel some kind of way, that this #### actually happened.

But I was never offended and it was a great movie that I think will go down as a classic with tons of replay value. Tarantino is definitely my favorite director. Not gonna spoil it for anyone but had I saw Samuel L Jackson right after I saw that movie I would have legit slapped the #### out of him

3.5/5 writing wasn't that great in the movie as the story, only parts I enjoyed were the k!lling.. And who was that white chick with the axe that had her face covered when they were in Mississippi

As a black man, i walked out of that theater feeling like a million bucks.

I'm going go out on a limb and say that this movie was Quentin Tarantino's middle finger to White Republicans and Racists out there. I think its pretty dope that a white director is basically standing on a table shouting "See what your ancestors were doing to these people and you think this is something they should be over with by now???" No black director could get this movie through Hollywood, including Spike Lee.

Dope movie

the pros outweigh the cons, but there are quite a few cons. For starters, it was too long, 15-20 minutes shorter and it would have been a better movie. Also, why wouldn't they have just straight up offered the money for the girl? There was no real reason for them to pretend they wanted a different slave, that really made very little sense, kinda seemed like a contrived plot-line, and the tension based on their pretending was not nearly as strong as in Inglorious Basterds (ex. Basement bar scene vs. dinner scene with Leo and Sam Jackson). Probably because there was no good reason for the pretending in Django, while in Basterds the pretending was vital to the whole 'master plan.' Inglorious Basterds did not have a single con. Django was dope though, definitely gonna watch it several times at a minimum, maybe once more before it leaves theaters.

:snoopcmonson: I was gonna call you dumb... but that wouldn't be appropriate. You just ignorant to that part of the hustle. He explained why he they should find another avenue. Its also a strategic and often used move in negotiations and cons. Read 48 laws of power and the story about the yellow kid and the boxing match. It makes perfect sense. This still happens today. Read up on Bruce Ratner and why he brought the Nets.

I mean, I took a klonopin and smoked a joint before seeing the movie, so I very well could be forgetful about some details and therefore wrong about that statement. Hence, why I wana see the movie again. I'm not dumb though, that would have been inappropriate and inaccurate hah.

Didn't Leo agree to sell the chick for 12k after finding out that they lied to him bout their intentions? Why wouldn't have he agreed if they were simply honest and forthright?

the whole thing was explained clearly in the movie

they didn't want to make an outright offer for the girl because they were afraid Leo would just say No.

great movie. my gf who is white, thought they did overuse the n word, but if im watching a movie from that time period, then i expect the realism. sam jack def played the uncle ruckus role to the max, made you laugh and hate him at the same time.

that rick ross track was dope and fit perfectly for that scene.

and i knew tarintino would make an appearance in the movie, but that had to be the worst of all the appearances he has made in his movies. it really felt like they picked some joe schmo off the street to spit a few lines and he was trying too hard.

I actually thought the N-word was under used in the film just by a little

There were definitely some moments here and there where I expected the white folk to say the N-word again but they didn't or referred to them by something else.
