    I really want to see this movie, I just have one question to ask...Is it anything like Amistad? I saw that movie once, and could never watch it again...I have no problem with language and violence, but that movie was too much! I love anything Tarantino does, so I'm considering it.

I actually think he wakes up in the morning and forces himself to say the "N" word 100 times just to make himself feel good inside.

    I get that the setting of the movie is during slavery, but geez, the way he used the word and the amount of times used was just crazy. And the gory violence, particularly the slave fighting scence was very disturbing and not even accurate. There is no record of "slave/Mandingo fighting. Slave masters didn't let them fight to the death like that because of economics- one less slave not working meant less money in their pocket.

    It didn't feel like a 2hr 45min. film at all. I think The dialogue in the film is very good and I think made the film move along well.

    Tarantino is a very creative director, but this is one movie of his- this and Death Proof- that I didn't like.
    My wife and I saw it yesterday afternoon. I am a guy who thinks QT is the greatest film artist since Kubrick. I thought it wasn't his best effort but it was still a very compelling film. It rambled around a bit but the end was outstanding. It just took a lot of stops and starts to get there.
    My biggest reaction to the film was historical. Was this really going on in our Country? I suppose it was. If so its amazing how barbaric some were in the 19th century.
    Tarantino is brilliant, and he can take me anywhere, even in a world where WWII was rewritten or where you could actually bring Samurai swords on airplanes. This was a fine film as well but I suppose I'm spoiled with his work always being so brilliant. But even though I don't think this was his best work, it may be the film that stays with me the longest.

    The movie is nothing like Amistad. In its heart of hearts Django is a spaghetti-western with the theme of slavery attached to the main character.

    That's true. Tarantino loves to use old genres and revitalize them. I love how he uses modern music in historical movies. The guy is flat brilliant.
    BTW...How fat was he in that scene he was in. Could barely recognize him.

    1.The movie was about slavery,if the N word in a movie about slavery bothers you, then your looking to find something wrong with the movie in the first
    place, or your a white person that didnt feel comfortable sitting through a movie that has white people depicted as cruel heartless people....

    2.Its a tarrentio movie, if your not a fan of his, dont watch this flick....His movies are supposed to be controversial & over the top....

    3.This is literally based on the history of this country & these things actually happend....If these harsh realities bother your or make you feel uncomfortable
    then im sorry, this movie shows some of the terrible things that happend during slavery, if it more realistic then infact the N word shouldve probably been
    used even more....

    This is the most historically accurate film he's made. Most QT films occur in parallel universes.
    This is a very, very good movie. The use of the language is absolutely necessary to portray the times correctly.
