nice try though
I'd be interested in an elaboration

damn and im sure you told all the people you know that it was a$s when your opinion about the movie is in the minority. They probably were like "damn, i thought it would be good" and are now missing out on the experience of a movie like this.

Regardless of what you feel about the movie, it will win oscars, it will probably be praised as a classic movie in the future and that's all there is to it. It's a critically acclaimed picture.


A movie like The Last Airbender is a$s. Not this one.

You always got those people that are just hard to please. Hope you're not like that. I know this guy who's not impressed with anything from music to movies to everything. He always tries to !! on things that are held with high regard just to be different..

There's a very specific point in the movie where it takes a sudden downward spiral.

Up until that point I was already crowning this movie as beast of 2012, but it quickly fell off and is reduced to just a "good, entertaining movie" for me. Also, I thought some of the music choices were pretty terrible and corny as hell.

All of the actors k!lled it though, and there were some outstanding scenes (the dinner scene for instance). I just with he chose a different path (or cut it all together) for the end.
Which part was the downward spiral ?? I feel like the whole movie was thoroughly entertaining and every scene in general played well into the progression of the story. I wouldn't remove much if anything.

can we get an elaboration if you dont mind ?? I feel like most black people loved it and most of the racist white people hated it.

If your perspective is one that goes over most people's heads is it really validated ??

kinda like the whole "does a tree fall if no one hears it" type of thing in a way.

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 when old boy had him hanging upside down in Caine's barn after the shoot out on the Caine plaintation? Im asking for a friend.
Cause I don't recall seeing that part. Movie gets a 10/10 from me.

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

Just got back from seeing it. Movie was great. !! is spike lee crying about. !! was crazy man. I enjoyed every second of it. Jamie christoph and Leo all played their roles well. Christoph is that dude tho. he went out like a g. He couldn't take what he saw done to that mandingo n had to handle biz. What Leo did was ruff to watch and hear tho. was anybody else mad at Samuel Ls character. I wanted to jump thru the screen on that house nicca lol. that part where Leo really cut himself and the whole skull and dialogue that came with that scene was crazy. Why didn't slaves revolt sooner. They out numbered their slave masters. Good scene.. Go see it and don't be some "uppity nicca" lol.

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

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.
