    I don't think I've ever heard an audience laugh so hard in a scene involving the KKK.

    The movie was god-awful. Based off of the previews and Tarantino's last 3 films I knew Django would be a letdown, but I wasn't prepared for the 3-hour piece of shit that awaited.

    If Tarantino is ever going to make a decent film again two things have to happen-- he need to hire an editor and a writer.

    Can't say that I agree with that...are you saying that is is no longer a good writer, or that he was never a good writer?

    Pulp Fiction was good writing and Jackie Brown was a great adaptation. But every single other film he's made is the kind of shit a group of 15 year old boys would come up with if you locked them in a room and made them outline a screenplay. In the case of Kill Bill Pt1, it works. In the 4 films following that, dogshit.

    with QT movies, I think the deciding factor on whether or not you'll enjoy them is how you were raised because he does push the envelope and touches on a lot of "sensitive" subjects. some people take offense to such things, while others shrug it off and accept it as just part of the movie.

    I'm kinda with Pennglock on that, but add Reservoir Dogs and True Romance to the list of "good" ones.

    I gotta agree with Pennglock here. The movie was good, and obviously gratuitous, but his story telling has really gone to hell in a handbag.

    I was very entertained by this movie and my 22 year old son howled throughout. There were about 20 people at the showing that we attended at 11:15am on thursday of which there were approx. seven Blacks. There was not much expression from the crowd which is kind of a bummer if you're attending a QT flick. The audience usually adds to the fun. "...for the right kind of Ninja" was a great line and was the gag that kept on giving. I wasn't offended in the least and I'm someone who studied racism in television (broadcast comstu major), also the civil rights movement from former Panthers and remain a student of American culture. I've been a fan of James Remar and Don Johnson for decades so it's doubtful that I could ever take issue with what they do or say on screen. Very good movie!

    just btw, and this is not in regard to any specific post, i saw the movie with an almost entirely black audience. they laughed and clapped throughout. if you are black and were offended, thats fine and to each their own, but if you are not, dont make any assumptions.

    Agree with stitches, audience was cracking and it was a great movie. It is not so much the story but performance of actors. Leo and Christopher Waltz nailed it.

    You made me think back in high school I went to see this movie called Higher Learning (back in the 90s)....audience was predominately black. And during one of the last scenes of the film, some dude yelled out "PORCHMONKEY!!!!". I swear I never have seen a white guy run so fast before or since then.

    I for one have never seen a Tarantino movie I didn't love.
