Never got the Kill Bill love at all (first one was fun), unless Bill playing some stupid flute and telling a really boring story counts as engaging.
Yeah Django is beyond ridiculous but who cares? It is supposed to be. Maybe I have lowe expectations of Tarantino than others so it does not really bother me when he makes films like this.
Kill Bill is like a real-motion Anime for mine; and it was obvious. I liked that. For what it was, it was brilliant and engaging.
With Django it almost seemed like a realistic set-up that went lolbad quick. For what it was, Inglorious was far more watchable IMO. It's an alternative to what actually happened, but its not done in a way that insults the Jewish plight. In fact, the Jews generally love it.
This on the other hand kind of seems insulting to African Americans IMO. I know Spike Lee has refused to watch it and I agree with him when he says “American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western". An African slave turning into the most badass cowboy seems a bit more contrived than usual. I don't think they'll have the same reaction the Jews had to Inglorious.

"It's not great but it's really entertaining" sounds a bit wanky to me. If a film is really entertaining, then it's great in my books. That's what a film is primarily for.

Saw X-Men for the first time. Neatly encapsulates my problem with many comic book movies; all these spectacular looking powers with glorious CGI which don't actually do anything other than, y'know, look spectacular. There's no tension when the powers don't hurt anyone or even threaten them.

Was with a girl who really wanted to see Django, so I thought I'd give it another chance. I think I like it even less now. The plotline just seems so contrived and convenient; the characters lack depth, the protagonist's arc is just stupid - and ridiculously, he basically becomes the best gunslinger within 15 seconds of trying; and you really don't give a crap about the showdown. I was watching Inglorious on my computer just now and it is a much better film.
