Anyone else bothered by the scene locations in Django?

At one point they were in the rugged mountains of Gatlinburg. Elk and bison were roaming the snow covered plains of Tennessee.

When Django makes his escape from the Australians, he rides off through the golden foothills of Mississippi.

I'm sure there is some "Tarantino is a genius" explanation but it just irked me.

Candyland was in Mississippi but I'm pretty sure there's no golden foothills there. (at least not like the ones shown in the movie)

There aren't. Mississippi is basically flat woodlands.

Try to just watch a movie and not get all worked up about stupid shite.

Pretty plausible in 1858.

They were en route to Tennessee there....maybe they were in Tennessee for that scene.

I get what he is saying. Everyone freaked when Jetfire busted out of the Smithsonian in Virginia and entered Arizona.

It can be distracting seeing blatant geographical dumbassery. Just like I get irked when I see stupid stuff involving the military in movies.

I thought that those hills wouldn't be found anywhere near Mississippi. I've never seen anything like them around here, and I grew up here.

The movie moves back and forth between the west and the south. The only real gaff is MS hills.

Greenville is north Mississippi. They were headed north into Tennessee. Tennessee/ north Alabama certainly could look like that back then.

I think it is pretty well established that Tarantino movies take place in an alternate reality. I mean, the ending of Basterds was factually inaccurate. So, maybe in Tarantino's world that is how Mississippi looks.

I thought the locations were a little odd, but I just assumed that they were out West or in Appalachia for the winter scenes. Candyland was def in Mississippi.

I understand it's a movie but so is Platoon. You didn't see Charlie Sheen marching through the frozen tundra of Vietnam.

Spoilers (?)



I'm not sure if they specified where the Dickie's mining camp was, but, assuming it was in the Appalachians, the foothills they were near is plausible. The timeline is the only thing that doesn't make sense, considering he managed to escape and make it all the way back to Candie's before they returned from the funeral

I guess the people that worry about buttons being made in a style a year too late for a movie seem kind of miserable to me. To each his own though. I have yet to actually see the movie; hopefully, I don't think about this thread the entire time.

It takes more than 150 years for there to be massive geological changes in the landscape.
