    Tarantino's next film comes out on Christmas. Who all is excited for this film? I'm hoping it is as good or better than Basterds.

    [​IMG]

    Plot: Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles - dead or alive.

    Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South's most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.

    Django andSchultz's search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of "Candyland," an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody (Kurt Russell) to battle each other for sport. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candie's trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival...

    For better! I saw the movie last night and it was definitely Tarantino in top form. The ending felt a little bit dragged out, but overall the movie was awesome.

    The most obvious thing I can say about it is that you can really feel Sally Menke's absence. It's without a doubt Tarantino's least tightly-edited film. It's hilarious in parts, gruesome in others, self-indulgent throughout, but ultimately compelling.

    I can honestly say, that I am really looking forward to this movie. Tarantino is a huge fan of spaghetti westerns and I can't wait to see his first one set during that time period. Inglourious Basterds was basically a spaghetti western in Nazi Germany.

    I thought it was a fun film. Not my favorite Tarantino film, but one I wouldn't mind watching again.

    My god, this movie is freaking AMAZING. I give it a score of the bounty collected in total + number of bullets fired + number of swears, all over 10.

    I would be interested in watching it because I am pretty sure it ranks as my favorite Tarantino film.

    I'd be up for more Django but I'm not sure they could get Jamie Foxx back. Which is a shame; he really brought the part to life & the role has to be more dignified than the Dr. Manhattan-esque bum he's currently playing.

    This is stuff they already filmed when they made the movie. Foxx doesn't have to come back.

    Watching it on Netflix now. Definetly Tarantino and definetly very entertaining.

    Some of it is especially funny for me because I work with an Austrian man who has the same accent and mannerisms as Dr. Shultz.
