Just saw this movie and I gotta say it was terrible. There is nothing funny about slavery yet Tarnitino made light of it throughout this movie. To all moviegoers, black, white, brown, man, woman, or child save your hard earned money. This movie set blacks and the human race back 100 years.. This movie was very offensive and I am shocked Jamie Foxx, Samuel L. Jackson and Kerry Washington signed on to play in this movie. They really should be a shame of themselves as much as I am ashamed that I spent 3 hrs of my Christmas watching it. My wife and I are very open minded but Quentin went over the line in this movie. Dont see it please.

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.

Great movie! It was very entertaining from the start and the characters were great. As is typical with QT movies: over the top in terms of story line, violence and bloodshed, but you should always expect that and come prepared! It was a lot of fun and I highly recommend it.

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.

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
