    Saw it today and loved it. Samuel l Jacksons character reminded me of a lighter version of Uncle Ruckus from the Boondocks. Well the first time we meet him he did

    Interesting write-up/review here, for those interested about scenes that were cut out and whatnot.

    I never really got the Kill Bill 2 hate. It's definitely the better film out of itself and Django. At least I actually cared about the characters in KB.

    Get bent.

    Excellent film but why oh why did they put hip hop tracks into the soundtrack at random places? So out of place. Just let Ennio do the whole score ffs.

    But overall I think Sergio Leone would approve of the film.

    Tarantino has always been eclectic with his music choices.

    I thought the majority of music in this was superb.

    Get bent.

    It was a bit inconsistent for my liking. Going from Ennio to Rick Ross to Ennio and then to Tupac didn't work for me.

    Saw it last night and thoroughly enjoyed it, yet it's the first QT flick that I came out picking holes in. Personally I think it was a tad too long and I agree with the comments that the soundtrack had a few too many misses (I was looking forward to the soundtrack almost as much as the film itself!)

    Waltz was superb, I agree with the comment earlier saying he should be in everything :D

    "Please, call me Leo" made me laugh a lot, in fact this is definitely his funniest movie yet. The bag head scene was cracking, absolutely out of place beyond belief but so funny. QT's cameo in that scene was ace, his acting later on was shocking though :D

    Oh and Jonah Hill.... Why? Odd.

    Oh, and Sam the man had the entire cinema laughing its arse off with his initial scene outside Candy Land!

    I disagree strongly. Kill Bill 2 I just found really dull. And it had a whole other preceding film setting up the characters for you to care about, unlike Django.

    As you know, I’m quite keen on comic books. Especially the ones about superheroes. I find the whole mythology surrounding superheroes fascinating.

    Take my favorite superhero, Superman. Not a great comic book. Not particularly well-drawn. But the mythology… The mythology is not only great, it’s unique.

    Now, a staple of the superhero mythology is, there’s the superhero and there’s the alter ego. Batman is actually Bruce Wayne, Spider-Man is actually Peter Parker. When that character wakes up in the morning, he’s Peter Parker. He has to put on a costume to become Spider-Man. And it is in that characteristic Superman stands alone.

    Superman didn’t become Superman. Superman was born Superman. When Superman wakes up in the morning, he’s Superman. His alter ego is Clark Kent. His outfit with the big red “S” –that’s the blanket he was wrapped in as a baby when the Kents found him. Those are his clothes. What Kent wears – the glasses, the business suit – that’s the costume. That’s the costume Superman wears to blend in with us.

    Clark Kent is how Superman views us. And what are the characteristics of Clark Kent? He’s weak… He’s unsure of himself… He’s a coward.

    Clark Kent is Superman’s critique on the whole human race.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this yesterday evening.

    The dinner table scene with the skull is the absolute highlight ... tense as the word tense can be!

    The shoot out near the end was super-duper great too.

    Only niggle is that I think it should have ended sooner like when Django gave up, or maybe just show his grinning face as the house blew up ... but you know, it was so enjoyable I didn't mind.

    Still like Pulp Fiction the best though.

    Walton Goggins put in another good display as well.

    Not having a preceding film isn't an excuse for poor characterisation though. Django's wife was a complete non-entity.

    I think I wooped a little bit when I saw his name in the starting credits.

    Get bent.

    If there ever was an "unpopular movie opinions" thread to match the gaming one, I'd have this:

    Overall I liked Kill Bill pt2 more than pt1.

    And yeah, I rate them both more than Django. Which is not to say that I didn't like this, of course. Quite the opposite!

    @binky I thought the bag head scene was abysmal. On part with what err ad-libbed when I was in highschool and made some show making fun of the teachers.

    I hope to good it was improvised.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    I Only just got around to this and LOVED it. Big QT fan anyway, but even with that I thought it was great. Christoph Waltz turns in another brilliant performance as does Jamie Foxx.
    Soundtrack was spot on as were the showdowns.

    The only scene I was not sure if i liked was the KKK style bag on the head bit, I did think it was funny and that QT was trying to say how absurd and who indeed does "make them" but it didn't feel right...

    The only casting I felt was off was SLJ maybe a film to far with tarantino ? I could only ever see the actor and not the part. Also Tarintino's Aussie was shite!

    But even saying that a wonderful film, I watched it twice back-2-back :)

    "Duffman is thrusting in the direction of the problem! Oh, yeah!"

    Haven't seen this yet. Sure I like QT films. For the moment, something is holding me back. IB did little for me. I love Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill. I know someone who has seen DU, their main comments included 'tons of swearing' ' the film is very long'.
