Eight years after the Joker's reign of anarchy, Batman, with the help of the enigmatic Catwoman, is forced from his exile to save Gotham City, now on the edge of total annihilation, from the brutal guerrilla terrorist Bane.
In 1858, a bounty hunter named Schultz seeks out a slave named Django and buys him because he needs him to find some men he is looking for. After finding them, Django wants to find his wife, Brunhilde, who along with him were sold separately by his former owner for trying to escape. Schultz offers to help him if he chooses to stay with him and be his partner. Eventually they learn that she was sold to a plantation in Mississipi. Knowing they can't just go in and say they want her, they come up with a plan so that the owner will welcome them into his home and they can find a way.Written by
The film was shot in one hundred thirty days. This was Quentin Tarantino's longest shooting schedule for a single film. See more »
Calvin Candie is seen smoking cigarettes in several scenes. The year is 1858. The cigarette was not mass manufactured in the USA until 1881. However, cigarettes were widely distributed in Europe at the time, and since Candie is a wealthy Francophile, it is not unreasonable that he would have them imported from France. See more »

The biggest thing here is Tarantino's ego. Wow! A very clever, even gifted, filmmaker with nothing to say, nothing original that is. I'm not going to subscribe to Spike Lee's objections because that would imply taking this seriously. Mr. Tarantino's ignorance is just monumental, mo-nu-men-tal! but, I'm afraid, very much the sign of the times. Let's make it about nothing with super violence to keep the crowds cheering. What about taking a little responsibility sir? Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and the rest of the cast do a credible job, inhabiting Tarantino's makeshift universe. Sergio Corbucci is your hero, but not John Ford, okay, that makes sense in your world, Mr Tarantino but please, stop preaching. Make movies but don't pretend that there is depth in your shallowness. I must say I wasn't bored, in spite of its length, I was just annoyed.
