Trivia

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.

Goofs

When Django is learning he is allowed to dress himself as he pleases, as he tosses the hat onto the bust in frustration, it rests off-center and pointing to the floor. But when the camera cuts back, the hat is suddenly level. See more »

Holy Sh*t!
25 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I rarely bother to give reviews after watching a movie. But holy crap this was a good movie. I'm pretty sure it is the best movie i've seen all year. and yes i saw dark knight rises, avengers, flight, Argo, hobbit, etc... Tarantino delivers and then some.. Every actor is on point. Awesome performances, great story, it will definitely take you on a ride full of surprises. I would recommend everyone to go watch this film, it is truly a great film.. unless you're a little kid.. don't go watch this movie if you're a little kid. I've seen all of Tarantinos movies and I have to say this has been my favorite. It is just awesome in every way. I'm usually very harsh on movies. I mean ill watch just about anything, but for me to think a movie was actually "good", takes a whole lot. DiCaprio was like i've never seen him before, and being one of my favorite actors, it was a little weird at first. But he does an outstanding job at selling his role within seconds of his first appearance. Waltz delivered as i knew he would. and Jaime Foxx, well he did not fall behind. Last but not least Jackson was hilarious and also did an amazing job... Go watch the movie, it is worth it.
