A must see. People are going to love it, or they're really going to take offense to it. I'm new to the Tarantino-eque movie, so I was not prepared for all the killing, blood and gore. That aside, the acting was just phenomenal. Yes, the n-word is said hundreds of times. Yes, there are intense scenes of whipping and killing. The understanding has to be there that this is supposed to be a depiction of of what it was like in the 1800s. It isn't the be all, end all. It sure is entertaining. Oh, and the soundtrack really adds that extra umph to the film!

Yes it's violent, but this is Tarentino at his best. The constant sense of outrage at the behaviors of the period driven characters is perfectly tempered by the absurdity of their beliefs and actions. The emotional whipsaw of hilarity; then violence and sometimes violence AS hilarity was nothing short of genius. Remember how conflicted we all felt watching the unhinged; unapologetic violence of Pulp Fiction while laughing so hard it left us dazed and confused? Well Django is an all-out thrill ride that demands you pay attention to the incredible injustice that was and in all to many instances, still is rampant. Anyone upset by the 100+ utterances of the "N" word-trust me; it's use is more than balanced by the sheer ignorance and ineptitude written into the character portrayal of the slave owners and those who supported the institution. This is the most fun I've had at a movie all year. What a way to end or start the year. See this movie; early and often! Thanks Quentin.

All one has to know is that it's a Tarantino movie, and it will be worth every bit of a $11.50 ticket, bought well in advance. Brazen, yes. Exhilarating, yes. Bloody, yes. Yes, yes, yes. If one has not learned to let the "N" word slide of the back, don't see this flick, because it's thrown around like breathing air. It's an excellent revenge movie. I wish Kerry Washington had a stronger role. Loved to hate DiCaprio's and Samuel L. Jackson's characters. Just desserts, I think. I was a little surprised at how Christoph Waltz's character went out, but it was a respectable exit. The funny parts were very funny.
My hubby gave up his ticket to allow someone else to go. I would gladly see it again, just to see his reaction. He loves blood and gore, things that explode, and a lot of action.
Great job, Q, cast and crew! Oscar noms and awards throughout.

I just saw this movie today and I will have to say that it was pretty good. This is a very long movie about 2.5 hours and five minutes long. I would recommand that you don't drink before the movie because you will have to go to the bathroom. The only thing i will say is that the shooting part was a little to long for me. But other then that it was a good moive. Critic was saying that they using the N word alot in this movie but I don't hear it much as they was saying.
