Goofs

When the group first arrives in front of the house at Candyland, Stephen comes out to speak with Calvin Candie. When shot from behind, Candie is sitting in the carriage with his legs crossed and when the camera angle switches to the front his legs are uncrossed. Also, when Candie reprimands Stephen about D'Jango "sleeping in the big house", the shots from the front show Candie's pipe in his right hand and when the camera angle switches to the rear shows his pipe in his left hand. Both Candie's hands, his pipe and his legs being crossed alternate back and forth a few times based on the camera angle. 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.
