This movie is a DOG. Disguised as an homage to spaghetti westerns, it is actually a black exploitation movie in the mold of Shaft. It's a cartoon full of one dimensional white villains for Django to kill. The dialog is not only hopelessly anachronistic, everyone, including the white gentry, spout profanity as if they're from the '80s ghetto. We are presented with Django the slave, who never having ridden a horse, is instantly an expert rider, and ends the movie with Roy Rogers style dancing horse tricks. We are presented with Django the slave, who never having held a rifle or pistol, is instantly a crack shot and the "fastest gun in the South".
Because Tarantino is Tarantino, all the actors turn in outstanding performances as if there was a “there” there. The movie is embarrassing and Tarantino and all the actors in it should be ashamed of themselves.

This is Tarantino's political anti South, anti white propaganda film.....and this from a Tarantino fan. He has Christoph play the identical character from Inglorious Bastards and even uses the same trick of speaking a different language so that the group around him will not understand the plan. Why repeat the same scene and charter.
This is basically southern slave owners substituted for Natzis. Natzis, however, focused on the animation of the Jews and domination of other countries. While I have limited knowledge of southern slavery, I doubt this is how most slave owners treated their 'property."

Django (The D is Silent) was excellent. The story, the acting, the filiming were all top shelf and perfectly Tarantino! This is the best Tarantino movie yet and the cast was over the top good. This movie deserves recognition and Tarantino deserves an award. Great job QT!

Considering the movie uses the "N" word more than a mob movie uses "MF", this one could be uncomfortable for some. The flow is choppy at best and the beginning, middle and end really are quick, even though the length is nominal. The acting is acceptable and I am confident no one will be nominated for anything. Having said all the highlights, if you like the Tarantino blood and splatter you will get a kick out of the movie. Otherwise, you will leave like me, knowing you will not buy the DVD.
