A great film , a homage to Westerns. Director Tarantino did a great job. Loved the Photography of the film, i felt like u'r were in 1858.

I liked parts of this movie. A bonus point awarded because I had the theme music stuck in my head for about three months.

I appreciated the style more than the content. That is, I enjoyed the cinematography and some the light humor throughout the film. Unfortunately, the end was anticlimactic; the demise of Django’s foes comes all too quickly and easily.

Tarantino unfortunately sets a high bar for his movies. Django fell short. The editing felt sloppy, the camera lingering on scenes too long, making explicit things that would have been more powerful implied or left to the reader's imagination. For example, in one scene, a cruel slave trader is left injured and surrounded by his slaves. Rather than show them glaring at the trader as he starts to beg and bargain in panic and move on, Tarantino stays until you see what happens, and it is not as good as what I would have imagined. This happens a few times. The soundtrack, usually a powerful component, feels clumsy. And finally, women are reduced to cliches -- the beautiful (but helpless) object of love and the reason for the quest (Kerry Washington) never seems fully realized, for example. Disappointing coming from the director who gave us "Kill Bill" and "Foxy Brown."

But even with all these flaws, a Tarantino movie is still thought provoking, surprising, and cinematic. He draws powerful parallels between bounty hunting and slavery, and no character escapes moral compromise. With some hilarious moments, such as the KKK complaining about how hard it is to see under their prototypical hoods.

As always with Taratino, lots of gore, but there is also a bit of wit. Although not much social commentary.

My husband and I enjoyed this very much. Tarantino is a master at his craft. I didn't love the gore, but I would just close my eyes for a moment. Great acting and a great story.

I put off watching this one for a long time, because of the supposed gore. Without commenting on the amount of gore - which is, after all, a Tarantino trademark - I have to say I really liked the story; it was great!

+Tarintino makes his B Class-like Movies seem like they could be, S Class Movies; and he does it like no one else ever even could. In other words, he makes legendary B Class Movies of his seem as legendary, S ranked-echelon-status movies. +Gobs of altruism and alliteration galore... much and many more... +Loved the good doctor and splendid side-kick character for their brilliance and lucid look into roles of becoming more masterful than most mere mortal men... and even then, and when, and while especially under scrutinizing, pressurizing scenes to deliver lines of whit amongst chaotic, simpleton, simian-thinking, authoritative men, and their monkey minded, madmen, henchmen. +I loved the getting into character class roles, coming from the heroes' actions as to when they encountered, foolish, slave-trader factions; I loved seeing the KKK event when while for the first time and having it unfold; and when while they, the KKK, were attempting to rally and organize themselves, they were sinfully comical by being as belligerently bold; I loved how the slave owners attempted to tackle the sticky issues and situations of there being a free blackman standing right before them; of this I thought and felt it to be wickedly awesome and witty thru their, the slave-traders’ farcical, failing approaches that they heinously held; and while the slavers' antics were seemingly noble enough to their own selves in their own real time, those moments had become knowingly then to us as wily, clever tactics to tackle juxtaposition between that of them, they, the said bad dudes, to that of us and our supposed, said, modern human behaviors; add now then, this is our method as to how we all justify just about anything to ourselves for just about any reason... and this is reason now enough, to see... individual story of yours, mine, and ours, is yours, mine, and our mutually inclusive story; and thus, this story shown from afar… through the infamous, fourth wall of one's window frame of time and space, (such as thru: television screen, movie projector, computer screen, and especially the eye of human mind), we are then able to perceive through this device, a glimmer of our unlearning curves, a glimmer of our unlearning lives, and a glimmer of our selfish selves; and by this strategic device, we can then achieve and perceive cosmic-like clarity; we can then see of our own silly inane and insane, said or unsaid, sickly-society, of our own sickly selves, and of our own sickly notorieties; and we can become more than ably apt; we can become more than ably ameliorated; we can become more than ably augmented; we can become more than ably adept in at seeing our own current unaware selves through cosmic-like, lenses of clear-like, comparison; and so by this comparison of ourselves, we may have means of viewing other characters and their stories that they exist in and about; and we can compare these characters with our own selves to see mirrors of our own reflecting, phantom selves, being reflected back at us and our selves. +An awesome, somatic flick; it flavored with whimsical characters and crafted wit; way to go Tarintino... and way to go to all who made this wonderful, wunderkind, cinematic, cowboy, remix. From a Devourer of Diligent Men's, Organized and Masterful Opuses; Rating: 6.0/5.0; -Xandor Who; (Edited and Augmented for more common courtesy and for more clerical clarity). (4-23-14).
