I love just about all his films save Jackie Brown. I don't know why there's just something off putting about it for me. It felt off compared to his other films. :smt102

I saw Django Unchained last night and enjoyed it. Christophe Waltz was the movie's MVP, even though Jamie Foxx was no slouch himself. Leonardo DiCaprio and especially Samuel L. Jackson, looking like an evil version of Uncle Ben, were great as the main villains. Don Johnson was good as Big Daddy. I'm probably in the minority, but I like Djang Unchained more than I do Inglorious Basterds, and I say this as a fan of IB.

Was Pam Grier naked in it? Any movie without her naked always seem wrong.

The thing is I have the opposite complaints with both movies. For IB I loved the beginning, thought the middle dragged to long, and the climax was perfection. For DU I loved the beginning and middle, instead thinking the climax dragged a bit too much.

I feel the same. After sitting with it a while, I've decided Django is my second favorite Tarantino film.

Spike Lee thought this movie was racist ? Did he feel the same way about "Soul Plane" ? :lol:

Don't play this at work unless you turn the volume down

He's actually refusing to see it. He's hated Taratino for a long time- he thinks it's inappropriate for a white writer/filmmaker to use the n-word in scripts.

I think what Spike Lee actually said about the movie is that he would consider it disrespectful to his ancestors [who were slaves] to see it. I don't remember him saying it was a racist movie, but a historically inaccurate one.

"Racially insensitive" doesn't have the same bite as "racist".
