The use of the N-Word in Django Unchained didn't bother me as is was relevant to the times (though still vile). However, the misuse of the F-Word did bother me...I know, I know it's a Tarantino film, but this was also done in Lincoln. In the Civil War Era the F-Word was only used around brothels as a VERB...it had no other meaning.
That being said, the film was wonderful. Tarantino did a fantastic job at his first attempt at a spaghetti western, with his own Tarantino touch. Of course, you have all the over-the-top gore you have with his other films & the odd ball music that just doesn't quite match up. I just with Tarantino would stop making speaking cameos in his own films - boy does he stink!
Christoph Waltz's performance is divine and, quite frankly, he should win Best Supporting Actor.
