While Kevin Costner turned down the role of Ace Woody, this is not the first time he has rejected a role offered to him by Quentin Tarantino. The character of Bill in Tarantino's Kill Bill films was originally written with Costner in mind and eventually offered to him, but he refused. See more »
As Shultz and Django ride up to the mansion the first time, the sun appears to be setting (or rising) from the left. As the scene progresses, the sun shifts sides, throwing the shadows of the shrubs and actors in opposite directions. This continues through the scene; sun from the left, sun from above, sun from the right, overcast. See more »

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.
