I am going to watch it this weekend.
2. Wrong again. I like most of Tarantino's work. Just not this one. I think he is a very creative filmmaker.
3. Wrong again. Slave/Mandingo fighting did not exist. Not the way it was portrayed. Slavery was about money.....economics. The slave owners wanted as many slaves out there as possible working his plantation. They wouldn't risk a slave getting hurt or so physically maimed that he wouldn't be able to work. Now there were boxing/fighting exhibition done at that time with slaves fighting each other. But never to the death.
I get that Tarantino takes an artistic license and bends the truth in his films all so he can express his vision and art. But for me he went over the top with it. in this film.
Those were very compelling portrayals and probably have a fair amount of truth in them. And when its displayed in the way it was, I found it very disturbing.
So as I said, while I agree it wasn't QT's best film, it may be the one that stays with me the longest.
"Phil Simms is the greatest QB in Giants history" ........Mahatma Gandhi
I thought it was good, but very over the top just like Inglorious *******s.

Thinking about it now, this was probably my least favorite QT movie. The thing I like about his films is most of the time he has a few stories going on at once that all tie in together eventually. It also felt very drawn out. It was good but could have been better imo.
