While watching this movie. (And I do love it)

I do wonder how Sam as Django and lets say......

Morgan Freeman as Stephen

Just throwing it out there. Think that could have been epic as well.

Also...Tarantino had some interesting characters playing the "Trackers"

Basically people who had the dog kill the slave. Here are some of them.






The Marshall was this guy

Yep..

If only Tarantino thought of Django Unchained...lets say 2005?

It may have happened *sigh* Still awesome though.

and you're mad at him for that?
Guess not. Just thought instead of taking advantage of his youth and good looks he would actually take time to really find an actual girlfriend instead of having somebody who satisfies him in bed. (Not saying all models are shallow, just the ones he dates are). If he wants to know why he is almost 40 and still not married, that may be a reason why. You look around and see guys like Damon and Will Smith married, hell even Clooney was married, you would think he would have settled down. I guess it's none of my business though, he can do what he wants.

from what I've read of this the media blew it completely out of proportion, but no one will likely ever know the real story.
Eh, that may be true. I don't know if you were old enough to care about it when it happened, but you could kind of see he was bitter about it, and still is today. He says he is embarassed the way he looked and acted during that time, so that may be a clue. All I remember is thinking, "You're the main character in an Oscar winning movie, and you didn't even show up to the Oscars!?"

re: Just got back from seeing Django Unchained


Interesting point here
quote:

Was Candie even really going to let them leave the plantation alive? There were about a dozen armed guards who stormed the place within seconds. I took Schultz's defiance as more of a pre-emptive strike -- I think all three of them would have been ambushed if they'd tried to leave (because what use are they to Candie at this point?



Remember the ambush (hilarious scene) by Don Johnson earlier in the film? Well Candyland is a worse plantation than that. So where Don Johnson let him leave before trying to attack them later..

Candy may have not even let them get that far. Again, maybe it was a preemptive strike from Shultz.

The Kill Bills are the only two Tarantino films I do not like at all. It's a bad kung fu knock off, and really, the only part I enjoyed was the anime sequence. I can't take anyone seriously who thinks Django is silly yet then praises Kill Bill. I mean, two words: Pussy Wagon.

Kill Bill is a ridiculously silly film. So is Death Proof, but Death Proof is sort of awesome in that it has great stunts, a sense of fun, and Kurt Russell. And its silliness has a great payoff in the end.


See, I actually feel like Tarantino is making the same movie over and over and over again... with different settings. At least everything post Pulp Fiction.

Kill Bill is Inglorious Basterds is Django Unchained.

They have common themes in them but are nowhere near the same movies.

The same themes are also in Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs... They're just more subtle.

Too bad they left this scene out. Go to page 55 of the script and it ends at page 67.

Sasha Baron Cohen would have played the role of Scotty Harmony if they didnt cut it.

Django script

Basically he's an awkward young man whose daddy buys Django's wife. He ends up falling in love with her.....and she cares for him (talking about babies and such *wow...but considering the time...I guess you couldnt blame her?*)

Then they go to the Cleopatra Club where they meet Calvin Candie and we see how he got DJango's wife from him...

Pretty bad ass!

To bad it was never filmed *sigh*

re: Just got back from seeing Django Unchained


I thought it was great did to spaghetti westerns what kill bill did to samurai/martial arts movies.

I really dont get the love for Inglorious Basterds on this board. I thought it was fairly weak carried by the performances of Pitt and Waltz.

Here is how I would rank his films

Pulp Fiction
Resevoir Dogs
Kill Bill Vol 1
Django
Vol 2
Inglorious Basterds

Hmm...Something very interesting I noticed about this film...

People I know who dont like Tarantino (or his movies much...well I wont say they hate them...but they dont think they're great)

LOVED this movie.

People I know who are huge Tarantino fans. Find it a very good film. Ranked below everything but Death Proof and maybe the Kill Bill films.

Interesting.


This is exactly right. My dad is a huge Tarantinophile and said he didn't enjoy it nearly as much as the other QT movies (save for Death Proof), but he thought it was good.

My buddy went and saw it last night and he texted me "WOW! That movie was so good. Near the bottom of the Tarantino ladder though"

It is definitely interesting. I'm glad to see so many people raving about it

Saw it last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Loved the "D'Artagnan mothafricka!" at the end.

one question that hasn't been brought up: Was Candie banging his sister or what?

They definitely had a Lannister-esque vibe about them

Did anyone feel desensitized during the dog scene? I felt like we were forced to feel what King felt, but we didn't get to really see what King saw.

Although QT really pushed the envelope with the content of the film, I think he may have been afraid to go all the way.

Just got back from seeing it. GREAT GREAT GREAT film. Should receive a ton of nominations. I think Foxx did a great job. I really don't think Will Smith could have done any better. Waltz, Leo, and Sam Jackson all delivered as well. I'll probably go see it in theaters again.

Yea this thread doesnt feel "complete" without his analysis.

re: Just got back from seeing Django Unchained


I'm a little late to this thread, but my initial thoughts:

Waltz was his usual awesome self. Baloo's take on the character was great, and I think spot on
DiCaprio was a fantastic villain
Jackson's best actual performance since forever...he didn't just play Samuel L. being Samuel L.
Jamie Foxx played Jamie Foxx, but did great.
The first raid of the KKK was hilarious
Absolutely loved the first 80% of it, didn't love the ending
Thought it should've ended with the first climax, last two scenes made it too long
Felt the movie's length a couple of times, but went by pretty fast for almost three hours
Thought the slave scenes were appropriately, deservedly dehumanizing, brutal and awful
Wish they went into a little more background on Stephen and Candie
Thought Django and King should've had a tougher go of it, everything was almost too easy for them until they got to Candyland
The movie as a whole was shockingly funny
The initial climax ran too long, and got cartoony even for QT
I liked this movie A LOT, but I didn't love it due to the overly long ending.
I wished Walton Goggins would've had more to do.
I wonder what all ended up on the cutting room floor

re: Just got back from seeing Django Unchained


***Spoilers throughout***

I just watched it last night and really enjoyed it. I thought the first 2/3 were fantastic and the final third drug just a bit. Basically everything after DiCaprio was shot was just a bit too drawn out and too cartoonish. Although I did like the scene when Django threw off his coat and we saw the bullets....that was very cool.

The acting was good across the board. Samuel L Jackson, Leo, and Waltz in particular were excellent. Kind of wish Broonhilda had a little more to do than just being a damsel in distress.

I like that Tarintino creates a whole world in his movies and you don't get to explore all of it. What was up with that female slave tracker? Don't know, she got killed with everyone else.

The tone was pretty good throughout...lots of comedy, some serious horror, and then the cartoonish climax (which as I said, I thought was a bit much).

Overall it is definitely in my top half of Tarintino films. Not as brilliant as Pulp Fiction or as tense and Reservoir dogs, but an entertaining movie with something serious to say.

re: Just got back from seeing Django Unchained


I loved some parts of the film, didn't care for others. My main gripe is the movie was far too long. Towards the end I kept thinking to myself is this movie ever going to end.
