^ I was half expecting it to end with that shot, frozen, with music kicking in and credits rolling. Minor complaint but I could have done without the horse thing.

It was a little random, but quite funny. I think Foxx just wanted to show off what his horse could do.

I thought the exact same thing. I didn't really get the horse thing either. It didn't bother me but just felt a bit random.

I third this complaint, but it didn't bother me nearly as much as it did my friend that I went to see it with. He's very picky when it comes to endings (he's still furious at how The Matrix ends with Neo flying).

I KNOW, right?!
Ah, well, I was happy enough that he absolutely loved everything else in it though.

Anyway, back on topic...On my first viewing of Django Unchained, I was thoroughly entertained and I thought it was his best since Pulp Fiction. However, based on my second viewing, I think I now prefer Inglourious Basterds. I still loved it but it just wasn't that first viewing for me.

You never know, maybe it was because I was sitting next to Mr Hard-To-Please-With-Movie-Endings. Or just movies in general with him; he's not so hot on The Exorcist, Minority Report, Close Encounters, Sin City, Blue Velvet and Psycho. Not to mention, he hated Oldboy, E.T. and United 93. As heartbreaking as these reactions were, it does make the successful viewings all the more special

I thought it was truly awesome in my opinion. I thought the use of dialogue was decent and the random scenes of carnage were good fun too. I thought Tarantino was about to lose motivation after watching Inglourious Basterds but Django Unchained convinced me that he still has it. Definitely one of my favourites of his along with Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs.

I liked Django Unchained, but here's something that bothers me a bit. Why couldn't they just go to Candy and say "I believe you have a slave who speaks German. I'd like to buy her from you" ?
Why did they have to pretend to be interested in buying slaves for fighting?

Saw it for the second time yesterday (got the blu-ray) and I love it even more. This is pure entertainment for me. The combination of a great script, good laughs, fantastic actors and awesome music makes this a great movie. Can't wait for Tarantino's next film!

I got that Steelbook too, good stuff.

Anways, how fucking good is this? Never saw it at the cinema as every time I went it ended up being sold out! Performances are all good (apart from you QT, Jesus fucking Christ you were awful) DiCaprio and Waltz are amazing though, everything from the dinner onwards involving those two might be some of Tarantinos best work.

And the bag scene. The bag scene is awesome.

Why the scheme though? He could have gone to Calvin and asked to buy Broomhilda and he probably would have sold. Was he a little mental or just enjoys being a smart arse?

Its Taratino's best film in quite sometime but that really isn't saying much. Its solid, but overlong and messy.

Would he have, though? They could have gone to Candie and said "we hear you have a slave to speaks German, we want to buy her", but he probably would have just told them to get lost. Remember, the only reason he considered a deal and took Django and Shultz to Candieland was because of their "ridiculous" offer of $12,000 for a mandingo fighter. Shultz's plan was always to leave having paid a small amount for Broomhilda, with Candie thinking they would come back in five days to pay the $12,000 for Eskimo Joe, but they never would.

Still mulling this over, but definitely a thumbs up, not sure of it's better than Basterds despite the pacing. That final act does seem a little off, but it fits into the heroic defeat and return sort of trope so I'm okay with that. Though perhaps Schultz went out without much of a send off? Still great stuff, love the practical effects even when they go way over the top.

For me, the best Tarantino film since Jackie Brown. In fact this will be the first of his I'll be buying since then, I can't wait to watch this again. And again.
It flows much better than recent efforts, there's some great comedy moments (the bags, of course) and the explosive violence is spectacular at times.

I didn't find this overlong or draggy at all, and the only things that irked me were the usual QT cameo (please stop) and he just can't help adding annoying captions to his films, but that's being really pernickety. Very entertaining indeed, and that's all I want.

QT knows how to make a good movie, that's for sure.

But what's with this need to 'act' in his own movies all the time? It just stains what is otherwise a decent picture with crapness. Totally brought me out of the movie when QT arrived with his terrible Australian accent. Made me wonder if this was his intention in case we forgot it was his movie or something. Geez.

Honestly I didn't mind it that much, and his exit from the scene caused a chuckle so there it is.

Anyone else think the marshal around the beginning doesn't seem like too bad a guy? Sure, he still says "nigger" and such, but there doesn't seem to be any malice in it; more like an obligation given the time and place. I can just picture him reading in bed next to his wife at the end of the day telling her about two boys that came into town and their crazy story, saying "You couldn't make up such a thing". He just seems like an ordinary guy honourably doing his job.

It's a huge credit to the actor (and Quentin of course) that I'm thinking this much about a two-minute part.

I don't think it's that relevant, but he didn't shoot them on sight out of professional courtesy or something. No idea if a Marshal is like a more respectable position or not. The scene makes me want a beer though.

Does anyone know if there's an extended cut looming on the horizon? I know there was a lot cut out to keep the running time 'down' and I think QT said something about releasing one way back at the end of last year, but I haven't heard anything else about it. Really hope there is one - I'd happily sit through a 3 hour cut

It'll probably go the same way as Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair at this point.
This is one of my favourite movies, but I'm not sure I'd be able to stomach even more of it. It tried most people's patience towards the end as it is.

I enjoyed it a lot. Tarantino proved that he still has it and brilliant acting off most of the cast.

One of the best casts assembled to date, with the chemistry between the actors just flowing from the screen. I remember being extremely happy to see my favourite actor (Samuel L Jackson) back in a strong role, as well as everyone's favourite nouveau Tarantino-alumni member Christoph Waltz. Both play refined personas and flesh out what could have been a point-and-shoot flick with success. Contrary to many opinions, I believe Tarantino showed as much sensitivity as possible considering the subject area. In the Southern period piece genre, it's tough to sidestep the blatant racism without in turn being more at fault for whitewashing (literally) history.

Quentin's argument in interviews made sense: that the black population rarely had a hero in the western genre. This film definitely adds Django to the conversation with other iconic gunslingers.

As a final short and sweet point, the humour was spot on as always. Favourite lines in the whole movie being the 'positive' exchange between Django and Dr King Schultz.

SPOILER ALERT

Dr. King Schultz: You sure that's him?
Django: Yeah
Dr. King Schultz: Positive?
Django: I don't know
Dr. King Schultz: You don't know if you're positive?
Django: I don't know what positive mean
Dr. King Schultz: It means you're sure
Django: Yes
Dr. King Schultz: Yes what?
Django: Yes, I'm sure that's Ellis Brittle
Django: I'm positive he dead.
