Seriously? I get a down vote for thinking Inside Man was a good movie?
thought it was very good, though didn't quite live up to my expectations. Unlike Ingloroius Basterds or Kill Bill (his most similar movies to Django), the tone felt uneven throughout. Started the first 60-90 mins light comedy/typical grindhouse homage etc. then once at Candyland took a much uglier and less light tone. It was tangible and not in the way that the violence in Inglroius Basterds was. The tone just got...ugly, which isn't necessarily a bad thing but was just uneven IMO. Then at the end it bounced back to the tone it had in the beginning.
i agree on the tonal contridictions....but the end is what went 1000% grindhouse....overall it was classic tarantino....
the first 2:15 was as good as anything hes done cept pulp and resevoir...the last half hour was basically grindhouse way over the top and ridicuously convienant
i thought jamie foxx was comletely miscast....he didnt seem like a slave from the deep south like the other characters...he was jamie foxx...for example theres a scene towards the beginning where he meets a slave who gives him information on finding the brittle brothers and this no name never been in a movie before actress is better and far more credible in her five minute scene than foxx is at any point in the movie...except for the end when all hell breaks loose and ten it doesnt really matter...
same could be said for samuel l jackson....hes been a caricature of himself for a while now but never worse than in this movie......leo and waltz were incredible
I mostly agree with the last two replies.
It was an awesome movie, despite a few issues. Very entertaining and I actually plan to see it in theaters again (very rare for me). Samuel L. might not have delivered his best performance, but I was entertained. Agree that Leo and Waltz were great. Things went nuts after the handshaking scene and it did seem out of place with the rest of the movie. I felt like it could've ended after the shootout and I would've been satisfied.
Definitely worth the $10 or so bucks to see it.
I liked it, particularly the three or so close-up zooms of DiCaprio where it was like the extreme closeup scenes in Wayne's World.
Foxx was fine. He wasn't supposed to be like the other slaves. One in 10,000, etc. He was a blacksploitation parody.
I saw it tonight with my wife and daughter and we absolutely loved it. Tarantino paid homage to a bunch of different genres in that film and I have to see it again to analyze it some more, but that was worth every cent of the price of admission.
I KNEW IT...this is why dicaprio should have been nominated and should win best supporting actor. this scene was absolute brilliance and I knew that the glass and hand to face rub was completely unscripted
edit: my bad, just saw that this was posted in the previous page
