The scene with the Australian slave traders was originally written a little differently. Instead of two Aussies and the Southern hillbilly man (played by Michael Parks), according to the final draft of the script, there was supposed to be three Australians and the characters had more dialogue.

Normally, the logo for The Weinstein Company is silent. In this film, it is accompanied with the theme music for Miramax from the early 90s, in a nod to Tarantino's first 2 films. See more »
Being a big Tarantino fan, I was exited for this film, and I did not get disappointed! It was fantastic! The film played truly to Tarantino's style and with the use of good music, I felt it was a 'Tarantino film'.
Lets start off with the actors, most of the cast did a great job performing. However, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L Jackson, Leonardo Di Caprio and Kerry Washington stood out the most! When you have all of them in one scene, you know its gonna be a good one! Jamie Foxx did a great job as Django, but didn't shine like the others.
The actual film was amazing! The plot was more complex than it sounds, it's not just 'A slave gets revenge on a plantation owner who has his wife'. There are many other paths the film goes into. The film was longer than most Tarantino films and you start to think, 'Mabye a couple of scenes should have been taken out'. But then it's hard to think of a scene to cut out! I suppose the KKK scene wasn't very relevant, but it was a great scene! This film should not be missed!
