Christoph Waltz turned down the role when first given the script. He felt it was too tailored to his persona. Quentin Tarantino insisted and wouldn't take no for an answer. Waltz agreed under one condition: his character had to be pure, and never once act in a negative or evil manner. Tarantino sent him a hand written letter that simply said "Of Course, Mein Herr!- Q" Waltz sent a telegram back "Mein Herr, Of Course!- CW" See more »

No spoilers here. Liberal violence and lots of banter, that's the a la carte menu but today's specials include using the phrase 'son of a bitch' so many times it deserves its own drinking game and a script that generally repeats itself rather often leaving it a bit flabby round the edges and less taut than Tarantino classics. The violence, when it comes, seems provoked but unexpected and unnecessary for the characters involved as I could find no empathetic bond with any of the characters to explain their actions although being a QT film you know that unspeakable violence is always a misplaced word away.
Given the serious themes covered it just felt really lightweight and disrespectful. In interview QT seems to think he's dealt with the themes quite sensitively but I couldn't see it. It is caricatured QT and so if there is a spoiler it's that you know exactly what you're going to get.
