I went to see this movie and it was the ABSOLUTE WORST P.O.S I've ever seen. How dare Tarantino make a comedic mockery of such a horrible time in African American history. The movie had NO entertaining or historic value. Spike was right to BOYCOTT this movie, do NOT waste your time or money seeing it, it's dehumanizing, degrading and offensive. It diminishes the suffering of those that endured it.
Jamie, Keri and Sam Jackson lost a LOT of respect, I cant believe they were that starved for a role to participate in something so vile. I see why Will Smith turned the role of Django down, some things should be off limits.

Very funny movie, and for a two hour movie you would never know because if keeps moving. There are no lag spots like some movies of this length. DO NOT take young children to see the movie very adult well some adults

I suppose I should have known better considering the director. For me the movie was unnecessarily gruesome and I really have a hard time understanding peoples desire for such violent films. In my opinion much more could have been done with this intriguing story line and stellar cast of characters. Waltz's performance was captivating while Foxx fell flat for me. Less blood with a little more story line would have gone a long way for me.

This film is a sadistic exhibition of gratuitous violence, packaged in a macabre and ghoulish manner and delivered to an audience under the guise of entertainment. The coldness of its long series of gruesome murders, coupled with the obvious attempt at mocking the ugliness of slavery, combined to have utterly disgusted this viewer. While accustomed to Tarantino's genre and bearing no illusions at what to expect in terms of violent content going in, even so, I found this film was violent and ugly on a level far removed from the physical, much unlike the dark comedic emphasis present in Tarantino’s “Machete.” Instead this one was just gruesome, physically and morally, with nearly nothing to offer in entertainment value to any normal person. This one is more or less a type of blood porn, far uglier and deviant than your typical ‘slasher’ fare. Save your money. If this sort of vicarious experience entertains you, it might be wise to seek the help of a mental health professional.
