I have a couple of Django questions
Just saw this movie on youtube (no ads either, which was sweet). Had no seen it before. I have a couple of questions.

1. When Django was wearing his colonial outfit and shot Bill Brittle, he only had a single shot gun. Why wouldn't he have had at least a 6 shot revolver? Never mind the brother fumbling his gun, he would have died.

Also, at the end when he killed the folks in the house after the funeral, why didn't he kill the one black slave who had been like Stephen, and on the "inside" with the Candy family. I get letting Cora go and not shooting her, but in all the scenes with the other girl, she was quite cozy with the Candy's.

re: I have a couple of Django questions
1. It was concealed, as far as Big Daddy knew they were unarmed.

2. Sheba was trying to survive and using her beauty to keep it that way. Stephen was actively trying to undermine and dominate other black people.


ETA: If I'm remembering correctly. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

ETA 2: Just went and watched the scene, you can hear the sound of the gun coming out of his wrist holster right before he shoots the first Brittle brother.

I have more questions: why does this movie suck so much? What meaning/humor was the viewer supposed to take away from the shooting on the staircase when the person who was shot was yanked offscreen vaudeville style?

It’s Tarantino’s style, his artistic choice. There really needs to be no other reason. If you don’t enjoy it…well then who cares

It's a spaghetti western with great acting & writing, fantastic shots, and has a director that doesn't care what people think of his choices.

The yanking off was a choice to emphasize the "Goodbye Ms. Laura", Tarantino does what Tarantino wants

So what you're saying is, you're not into Tarantino's violent brand of stylized and fetishized racial revenge porn?

You are correct. Sheba was pretty arm candy and wasn’t near as bad as Stephen.

Thought this was about the original Django in 1966.. which isn't like in my Top 10 of Spaghetti Westerns, but it's very good

Now, I'm not saying we don't appreciate the time and effort that went into your troll.

We're just saying that execution coulda been a bit better is all.

re: I have a couple of Django questions
There's also a big chunk that was left out, what I refer to as the "Scotty Harmony" scene. In the original screenplay, Broomhilda was purchased by a rich plantation owner as a gift for his son Scotty, who was mentally challenged. Broomhilda kept Scotty happy (yes, even sexually) and in return, she was treated very well. Scotty even intends to marry her, and they go to Greenville for a romantic weekend together. If memory serves correctly, he gets drunk and is tricked into playing a card game with Calvin. Sheba flirts with Scotty and tells him he has a good hand, and convinces him to keep wagering. Calvin puts up Sheba, and Scotty in turn has to wager Broomhilda, and loses. He calls Calvin a cheat, Calvin challenges him to a duel, and Scotty gets shot and dies. Sacha Baron Cohen was slated to play the role of Scotty, but was unable to fit it into his schedule at the time, so the scene was scrapped.

Also, if you notice, there are 5 or 6 slaves in the "train" to Candyland. They cut out the part where two of them were killed by “fight expert” Ace Woody (who was supposed to be played by Kevin Costner or Kurt Russell). I think in the original cut, Billy Crash is the one that kills them, but it's edited out. One of the slaves who was shot was Big Fred, the slave who had beaten Amerigo's slave to death with the hammer inside the parlor, earlier in the film. You'll notice that when he runs them off to the "arena" there are only 3 left.

Giving that dude's wife shite for fricking up the hoods.

Also... finally a Western that shows what people would want coming off the trail. They grab ice cold beers, not shots of Whiskey.

That scene always makes me want to have a beer just like a Big Kahuna burger.
