Trivia

Cuba Gooding Jr. lobbied for the role of Django but Quentin Tarantino would not consider him. According to Gooding, it is his biggest disappointment. See more »

Goofs

Calvin Candie compares a slave to a teddy bear, even though teddy bears were not invented until the time when Theodore Roosevelt was president, hence the name "teddy". Oddly enough, the film is set in 1858, that president's birth year. See more »

One of the best movies this year
26 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At first I didn't want to see this movie because of some political remarks made by Jamie Foxx and Samuel Jackson, two of my previously favorite actors, but Quintin Tarentino is a great director, so I broke down and saw it. Glad I did. This was absolutely one of the best movies of the year. Although Jamie Foxx has top billing, this film would not have been anywhere as good without Christoph Waltz. He stole every scene he was in. Brilliant acting and great comedic delivery. Leo was great too. Lots of blood, something expected in most of Quintins movies, but a great story. Also expect to hear the N word about 2000 times. Cristoph Waltz should get the Oscar for his performance. Should get nominated for best picture. This is absolutely a must see.
