As usual, Tarantino was fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed this movie, although I think that "Inglorious Basterds" remains Tarantino's best film to date. Christoph Waltz makes a great anti-hero, and Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio looked like naturals in their roles, but Samuel L. Jackson may have given the most impressive performance of the bunch. The violence is no worse than the first "Kill Bill" movie, but the movie still is not for the feint of heart.

It has been a long time since going to movies have I witness the entire ordinance at a theater giving a movie a LOUD sounding applause at its completion. This movie deserved a standing ovation in my opinion and a lot of us there did give the standing ovation. I mean this movie was captivating to the end. Now I would not allow any young person to watch it due to the harsh profanity through out the movie. However, this is a movie that gets your attention. Jamie Foxx performance was outstanding and his supporting cast , Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington and the entire cast the same. I really enjoy it tremendously. Good story line, the good guy is meaner than the bad guys and he saves his girl. I really appreciate the happy ending.

One of the most exhilarating black movies since the days of Shaft in the 70's ELJones.com Definitely a MUST SEE. You will not be disappointed at paying full price. If you are you might want to check your own ideas of right, wrong and justice.

LeMiz only had front row seats and we jumped to DJANGO instead and were not disappointed. The many plots were fast action and the almost 2-1/2 hour movie went quickly. Acting was really good and the twists took your breath. It was a bit too Quentin Tarentino in that it was gratuitously violent and closing your eyes didn't diminish the images. Wonderful casting and even some lighter moments (but not a comedy) and the character development made you interested in what happened to them.

I loved this movie. Quentin makes the best movies ever. This one is definitely no exception I couldn't wait to run out and see it. With an all star cast of Foxx, DiCaprio, Washington, Waltz (playing a good German this time...lol), and none other than one of Quentin favorites Mr. Samuel L. Jackson himself, this movie just spoke GO SEE ME!! From beginning to end the action was on. Dr Schultz (Waltz), a bounty hunter out to make a "killing" gets his man dead or alive. With the help of his companion Django (Foxx) a slave he saves to help him catch his man. The two develop a great friendship and a partnership and they set out on there quest of bounty hunting. All the while Django is thinking about his enslaved love Broomhilda (Washington) and waiting for the chance he gets to save her and make them both free slaves.
