    How anyone can claim Basterds over Django is beyond me

    We're really splitting hairs at this point, these are both two of my favorite movies. But i prefer Christopher Waltz as a villain over a hero. The scene where he finds the Jews hidden under the floorboards was great. I've always been more interested in WWII films over westerns and civil war era movies. But both were great flicks.

    Just saw Silver Lining Playbook. It was good. Jennifer Lawrence did a good job like usual and surprisingly so did Bradley Cooper. I didn't know if I'd be able to take him seriously but he pulled it off. I keep wanting to say things about it but don't want to give anything away....but I would recommend it!

    I ended up being pretty ambivalent about Django. Even setting aside the politics of the film (which for me were troublesome), I found it to be overlong and a retread of his last film.

    Yeah I watched SLP last night as well. I had a bit of a tough time getting into it - it felt kind of forced at first. But the second half won me over, and overall I liked it a lot. And yeah, Cooper was surprisingly good in a dramatic role.

    Oh, and Gabe the theory you posted way back when is definitely an interesting one, but I really think the film is much more literal than that. If your theory was true, I imagine there would have been some revelation at the end.

    What the fuck are you talking about, hillbilly?

    Also, the fact that none of you douchebags put Kill Bill 1 up there is horrible. That movie was fucking brilliant.

    Look, I'm sure there are plenty of analyses out there about how the film punctured all these long-standing racial archetypes about revenge and justice, and how it exposed the visceral reality of slavery for audiences who had never really considered it before. I guess you can find reasons to argue it was redeeming.

    But for me, it was a just a pothead making an exploitation shoot-em-up spaghetti western about the darkest stain on our nation's history. Rather than being offensive, it was silly.

    Agreed. It seems like in general people prefer 2 to 1 too, which I never understood. KB1 is probably third in my book behind PF and JB.

    And sure, I'll do the Radiohead thing for Tarantino:

    1. Pulp Fiction
    2. Kill Bill with a preference for the second film over the first
    3. Jackie Brown
    4. Death Proof
    5. Reservoir Dogs
    6. Inglorious Basterds
    7. Django Unchained

    Wow. I think Death Proof is the worst thing he's ever done. Guess I gotta revisit that. I'll play:

    1. Pulp Fiction
    2. Kill Bill 1 and 2 (They're tied for me... I kinda see it as one epic)
    3. Reservoir Dogs
    4. Jackie Brown
    5. Inglorious Basterds
    6. Django Unchained
    7. Death Proof

    I'd even count True Romance and Dusk til Dawn above Death Proof.

    2-5 change all day. I don't see Django moving up anytime soon. A lot of fun and a wild homage but it's definitely lacking. Jackie Brown always seems to slip down the list for me, until I rewatch it and remember Ordell's glorious ponytail.

I urge all of you to not only watch Searching For Sugar Man, but to also listen to both of Rodriguez' albums, because he is a talent that should not go unknown and it is story that should not go untold.
    My bf and I were both enthralled with the ending. Thanks for the recommendation!

    Had I had listed a top five, Kill Bill would have been right behind django at number 5.

    I also really like death proof so that'd be my honorable mention.

If this is an accurate portrayal, fuck the CIA (as if this weren't already my sentiment), if not, fuck the Bigelow hype.

    The last bit in Death Proof is wonderful. It's the rest of the movie with the bloated coked out Tarantino dialogue that made it hard to watch, which also made it hard to enjoy Inglourious Basterds. I assume Django is more of the same.

    So you think it trivialized the plight of the slaves? Or you just don't think that a movie should be allowed to have both slavery and humor?

    Essentially, yes. I'm not concern trolling Django like a lot of people on the right have been doing, but at the end of the day, this was the American holocaust. It trivializes the historical horror of the event by turning it into a Sergio Leone-meets-Shaft flick. I realize QT skated around similar issues in his last movie, but even there he didn't go so far as to set it in fucking Auschwitz or something.

    This movie didn't make me as angry about everything as it clearly did you. But I also don't see all the hype. I thought Hurt Locker was much better, Zero really did NOTHING with the characters, which always bothers me. I only really enjoyed the last 10 minutes.

    So the South is Auschwitz?

    No, it's okay, Mirior, I get it. Nazis are funny but slave masters aren't. Because Jews are kinda white so your guilt doesn't kick in.

    It's not a documentary. It creates a black hero out if it. It talks about a sore subject in a pomo way.

    Candyland, not the whole South.

    Look I didn't feel great about Basterds, either. I'm only drawing a distinction to point out that Django goes much further than Basterds did in turning the particulars of an awful historical event into fodder for a revenge flick. I mean, no one in that movie throws a can of Zyklon B at a Nazi or conducts medical experiments as part of an elaborate revenge fantasy.

    I thought I was very well made. The Master was better. Haven't see Zero Dark yet. More than a speghetti western to say the least.

    Its like everyone talking shit on cloud atlas. Ok sure it wasn't great, but to put something like that together is a major fucking accomplishment.

    Ive tried to write a screenplay and make a film before. Even short, one camera, three actor films are hard to make somewhat not completely shitty.

    I mean I don't care if you didn't like the film or not we all have our own taste but it was very good filmmaking and writing and acting and everything.
