    Saw Django tonight. Doesn't quite match Inglorious Basterds, I'd say. The Tarantino-ness feels rather crowbarred in.

    That's been the case with his films for quite a while now. Tarantino has turned into your embarrassing uncle who turns up at a wedding in a leather jacket and tells you how swinging he was. He's a money-grabbing sellout who can't write, can't direct and has run out of ideas.

    Not seen Django though, tbf.

    Django was a big let down for me. It almost seemed like someone doing a parody of a Tarantino movie. One of his worst, if not his worst, movie.

    I won't bother with it if it's not even as good as the ham-fisted Inglourious Basterds. That was utter tripe. I'd be hard pressed to name another film which has been a bigger disappointment to me.

    Not even Biggles: Adventures in Time was as big a disappointment.

    I didn't think Inglorious Basterds was that good, yet it was much better than Djano IMO.

    TBF, I thought Django was OK, and liked Inglorious Basterds overall. But I guess Tarantino has put up really high standards. I was really looking forward to his latest but was pissed off towards the end. It almost seemed like he didn't try.

    This. I would rank Django only behind Argo, Lincoln, and Silver Linings Playbook in the Oscar race. For those that didn't like Django, did you enjoy Kill Bill? If so, I'm surprised if you don't like this one as the style and mood is very similar.

    Thought it was way better than Kill Bill, found the second installment of that really rather dull, Bill really is the most boring man ever.

    Really enjoyed Django I have to say, may not be a great film but it is just ridiculously entertaining. The masks scene really is one of the funniest things he has ever written.

    I think Kill Bill absolutely craps on Django. Django was supposed to be, like Inglorious Basterds, a favourable revisionist story-telling of an oppressive/evil time. But it becomes really cartoonish and hard to believe from the get-go. Although both can be gory, Kill Bill is much more engaging IMO in the story-telling and the tension is far more palpable throughout the movie as opposed to just a scene.

    Di Caprio and Waltz stand-out clearly, and they're not even at their best - well, Di Caprio is very, very good actually. Samuels isn't poor either, but I think his sinister side could have been portrayed better. Thought Foxx was a bad choice for Django.
