Spike Lee is pissing because Director Quintain was too liberal with the niggeredly dialogue. When was the last white director that told Spike what to wear to a Knick game?

good movie, prolly best behind Pulp and Basterds. Waltz, Foxx and DiCaprio turn in very good performances.

Django??   Just a crap movie with small efforts of truth.  Not a movie with any intelligence. The crazy horrible violence is QT.'s  specialty.

It isn't bad but silly. A movie for teenagers,  unfortunately!

This movie needs to be made but not by a fool.  Stupid piece of garbage!!

he's prolly a spike lee fan. Spike Lee is mad at all the use of the N word. But if you watch all these black movies, they say the N word just as much. Where is the outrage over those movies. Oh yeah it's not our word to use.

I know I almost sent a twitter to him saying hey Spike meet the kettle.  Seriously!  Has anyone ever seen the movie Bamboozled?  If there was ever a more racist and saterical movie please tell me.  It is about the minstral shows were people dressed up in black face, danced, talked like they were slow, eat watermelon and fried chicken.  Basically about as stereotypical as you could possibiliy be.  Perhaps Spike is just made that he didn't think of it.  Personally have NEVER been a Spike Lee fan and this is prime example why.

I like all of Tarantinos films, but to me it sometimes feels like he's entertaining himself more than us.

His strong point in early movies like 'Resevoir Dogs' and 'Pulp Fiction' was his dialogue. But lately something about his writing seems repetitive, to the point that a character in one movie reminds me of a character in a completely different movie.

haven't seen Django and will probably wait until it goes DVD BUT it DID win two Golden Globe awards for screenplay (Quentin Tarantino) and Best Supporting Actor (Christoph Waltz) which probably SHOCKED the Hollywood establishment because Tony Kushner for screenplay and esp Tommy Lee Jones for Best Supporting Actor were supposed to be the "Lox, Bagel and Cream Cheese" for Lincoln.

will be interesting to see what happens at the Oscars because Lincoln, ex for Daniel Day-Lewis, has been pretty much "stiffed" by the awards shows so far

To me Christoph Waltz should have won Best Supporting Actor.  He was fantastic in Django.  I enjoyed Tommy Lee Jones in Lincoln, but I don't think he had enough screen time to warrant winning the award.  We'll see what happens at The Academy Awards.  I believe Lincoln will at least win Best Picture, Director, Actor.

interesting point on "screen time" for Jones and I haven't seen Django so I can't really compare Waltz's roll to his BUT Jones as Thaddeus Stevens was one of the most impressive preformances I have seen from ANY actor in ANY movie in decades

and the award is "SUPPORTING" Actor so just because he isn't in every scene, I don't think that should be a big factor. that's why Sally Fields is up for Best SUPPORTING Actress instead of Best Actress

Waltz was really good as usual, but his performance doesn't come close to DiCaprio playing "Calvin Candie" and Samuel L playing "Stephen"...Your reaction to Candie's character is pure horror, as Tarantino intended, and I think it took some balls on Leo's part IMO...Jackson plays the Uncle Tom servant just kills it... seriously two of best acted roles I've ever had to pleasure to watch...No way the Oscar's have the courage to reward such difficult roles, PC being the law of the land in all...

Pulp meets Spaghetti Western in classic Tarantino fashion...I would go again to be honest...Good stuff although a touch on the long side...

I liked Waltz' role in this better than Water for Elephants.
