Inside Man was a great movie
I have to admit that even though I really want to see this, the idea of a spaghetti western style movie focused on slavery does make me a little uncomfortable, but maybe that is part of what Tarantino is trying to do. Also, it isn't like spaghetti westerns can't deal with important subjects. Some of the scenes in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly pretty powerfully pointed out the futility and stupidity of war. If he doesn't want to see it that's fine but he probably should before he criticizes its content.
I just assumed it was 90 minutes of the Time Haters from Chappelle's Show, a movie I've been trying to get off the ground for 8 years now.

His last movie was holocaust revenge porn. Nobody had a problem with that, dont see the issue here either. It is what QT does, and he is clearly an equal oportunity offender, so to speak. Besides, anyone who criticizes a movie without seeing it has little credibility to me.
I liked it a lot.
absolutely loved it. i had high expectations going in and it exceeded them.
The 25th Hour was an amazing movie.
why doesnt spike lee want to see this movie?
"American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western.It Was A Holocaust.My Ancestors Are Slaves.Stolen From Africa.I Will Honor Them."
Then further: "It'd be disrespectful to my ancestors to see that film. That's the only thing I'm going to say. I can't disrespect my ancestors," Lee told VibeTV in a recent interview.
"It's just so hard," Greivis said. "It's my heart, my love. Maryland made me who I am."
It was a classic Spaghetti Western, with some Samurai thrown in there. My only complaint is that it was maybe 20 minutes too long, but great movie. I'm glad Will Smith didn't take it, because he would've been too big of a personality for the role.
BTW, in the movie, Leo's hand was actually cut during the skull-crushing scene... it wasn't supposed to... but he just kept going, and Tarentino kept it because he thought it added to the scene. That's awesome.
he's an idiot.
That just sounds pretentious. But I'm just a white guy who likes movies, so I might lack perspective.
interesting...i was wondering why that was there.
It's hilariously ironic coming from a guy who does nothing but movies about race where the good guys are always black and the bad guys are always white. He also bitched about Clint Eastwood's "Flag of Our Fathers" for not having any black soldiers in the movie, even though it was historically accurate, and about Clint having the gall to do the movie "Bird" asking what business a white guy had in directing a movie about Charlie Parker
I am pretty seasoned but there were 2 scenes when I literally joined the woman sitting next to me as we both had to look away.
Very good movie.
Just came back as well and I felt that when it ended I could have went and saw it again. Just amazing. It dragged a little about halfway through but nothing too bad. Up there with Dark Knight Rises as my favorite films this year. Very much recommended unless you have a problem with large amounts of violence.

People like me? Please tell me more about myself.
I liked it a lot but I was also pretty uncomfortable during parts and not necessarily just because of the violence, and I'm pretty hard to offend. I guess there were times when I questioned whether the movie was having too much fun or being too irreverent about a topic as serious as slavery.
Really enjoyed it and will probably see it again.
I think a large part of my discomfort stemmed from seeing it with my sister and brother in law, who are both very much bleeding heart types. I assumed they were probably horrified by parts and I find it hard to enjoy myself at the movies when I chose the movie and I think the people I'm with aren't enjoying it. Turns out my BIL thought it was brilliant and my sister liked though she found it disturbing, so I guess a large part of my discomfort was unfounded.
There's no chance anything in any movie could make me uncomfortable other than white guys rapping.
