1. Saw it yesterday. Not bad. Very Quentin T. .

Don't get a large beverage.

3. Marjie and I saw it on Christmas Day.

We celebrated a "certain ethnic" Christmas with a movie and Chinese food. I enjoyed the movie, typical Tarantino, lots of blood and gore, decent story, just a bit long. Watch for all of the cameos.

4. I don't want to hear the N word once let alone over 100 times

I wish that word would DIE! DIE! DIE! historical period be damned. I grew up during segregation and Jim Crow. I remember it being common speech. Then it began to die out. Now this? No. I won't be going.

I really don't like Tarantino's movies. In the end, they really are all the same movie.
But I wish those who do go well.

6. A lot of this movie is explicitly about the ugliness of slavery.

I'll be watching it because this kind of movie is what gets people talking about that elephant in the room.

From what I hear about Leonardo DiCaprio's character, you would be cheering when Django gets his revenge on him...

8. The most cheering was

at the end when Samuel L Jackson's evil character gets capped.

Great Movie! Overly bloody at the end, but the the audience clapped and cheered anyway.

9. true, but I heard that and saw a lot of bad things growing up. I hope others find

something in it that helps turn things around but not me. I can't hear that stuff again.

5. I really wanna see it

I love me some Tarantino

A lot of people don't like his style, but I personally believe the man is a genius.

10. His "Kill Bill"

movie was just stupid, gratuitous violence. Django was clever, funny, engaging and had a lot of blood-filled violence. Could have been shorter - couldn't have been better. OSCAR calibur for sure.

7. Don't spoil it

I have to wait until it comes out on DVD before I can see it, but I'm not going to let Spike lee persuade me even though i do admire him as a film maker. QT never disappoints me when it comes to his work.
