Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, now with Trailer

Yeah. In.

I'm pumped. I've become a big Christoph Waltz fan since Inglourious Basterds. I even enjoyed him in Green Hornet and

Spoiler:
Water for Elephants

Won't go on Christmas day though(worked enough sh*tty jobs where i was forced to work holidays to vow to myself to never encourage patronage at non-essential businesses on holidays), but definitely that weekend.

Me too. Saw that earlier today. Trailer didn't blow me away, but story and every other element in it did. I can't wait. This is probably on almost everyone's must list.

Nice. I'm intrigued, and that's a good spaghetti western reference with the character.

So...no relation whatever to Django? Why does Tarantino even reuse these titles, when he's making completely new films? Just as a confusing tribute?

I believe that's Franco "Django" Nero at the end of the trailer, to boot.

Looked interesting.

Tarantino has my curiosity, and my attention.

I was hoping for some gypsy jazz. Kind of disappointed.

Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, and DiCaprio ... directed by Tarantino? Um, yes please. Day one.

AND Walton Goggins!

Yes yes yes yes yes!

I'm fully behind a James Brown fueled western by Quentin.

Disappointed that the trailer didn't play before my IMAX 3D screening of Prometheus. That being said I can't wait for this movie

Damn good trailer.

Is there something wrong with me when I see the above-mentioned title and think that Q-Stone has somehow released his feature film opus?

[edit] *looks at video*

Holy sh*t. This *IS* Q-Stone's opus magnum!

I approve of the use of Johnny Cash's "Ain't No Grave" in that trailer. The film looks good, too.

Trailer number 2. Enjoy.

Yo I saw this last night and it was SO GOOD. Easily my fave QT since Pulp Fiction.

Waltz is great. Samuel L. Jackson (who I didn't even know was in it) was great. Presents some heretofore unexplored (at least to my eyes) aspects of slavery that were awful and fascinating, is paced wonderfully for such a long film, and also has the benefit of being very, very funny.

I hope I'm not out of step with the eventual consensus (for the film's sake, not mine), but I think people are going to like it a lot. I really found it electric from start to finish, with only one speed bump in the form of an awkward cameo that I should have seen coming, but resolves itself nicely.

Gah, that second trailer gives away too much! I'm glad I hadn't seen it prior.

Apparently in an interview recently, QT identified Death Proof as his "worst" movie, as in not as good as the others, which is a pretty damn high quality bar, because Death Proof is great. I bet Django will be well received.

Also, you've seen it already while I have to wait a month, so I kinda hate you now.

I'm a little baffled by the Christmas release date. This thing is ready to go. I hope there's no effort to trim its running time in the interim. It's long, but I wanted every bit I could get.

Interesting, his thoughts on Death Proof. I admit to finding that one pretty, pretty painful to sit though. I thought he'd lost it at the time. He has not!

Go see this film. People stood and clapped afterward. Like, a hundred people.

Oh Tarantino, you had me at the tooth.

It is a very big movie day in a lot of markets. It is a major day when non Christians go out especially. The joke is that X-mas is when Jewish families go to the Chinese Restaurant and then see a movie.

Even for me, when it was a small X-mas our family would go out to pretty busy theaters.

I'm not really a fan of Jaime Fox. This is probably a rental.

That's so weird. Death Proof is one of my top 3 favorites. There are so many things to love about it. It's also one of those movies that just gets better and better as you rewatch it. I think I can understand Tarantino looking back on it as a director and feeling like a few things could have been cut out of it.

I'll have to go see Django sometime this week. Yeah, he had me at the tooth as well when I saw the trailer way back when.

The audience at my showing didn't clap. That was saved for Les Miserables. But Django was really enjoyable. I don't think it's *saying* anything. I think critics have trouble with Tarantino films because they want it to be meaningful. Especially at Oscar time. So when it literally is a mashup homage to spaghetti westerns, pulpy 70s movies and a blaxpoitation film they're disappointed. His movies are always entertaining, though, and this one was no different. I enjoyed it more than Inglorious Basterds, but I think IB is a better movie, if that make sense.

Enjoyed this popcorn-worthy film. Buckets O' blood with enough "N-words" to sink the Titanic.

It was a blast--similar thematic ground as Inglorious Basterds, though not as challenging. I certainly made it an odd double-feature with Wreck-It Ralph.
