I strongly urge you to reconsider seeing this movie as it is honestly one of the very best movies I have ever seen and I think has the possibility of becoming an all time great.
without giving too much away killing white people is not djangos main motivation, merely a small perk considering his plight and at some points shows that he has a second thoughts about taking life.
I thought it was excellent as well.
And I agree, there were some parts that were absolutely hilarious. Jonah Hill's part in the movie (or I guess I should say the main event in which he was present) was pure gold.
Cristoph Waltz was phenomenal. I saw the movie with some friends and one of them thought that his character was pretty much Landa from Inglorious Bastards
only in different attire. I can see the similarities but I won't hold it against Tarantino because the similarities are only present in the delivery of the dialog and I think the way in which Waltz delivers his lines adds to the character in Django. In fact, I could see it adding to any character because it's more cerebral and sly than anything and I'm not sure there's a role he could play where it wouldn't fit. I really thought he made Inglorious Bastards
what it was purely based on his dialog and delivery. I really like him as an actor and I hope he and Tarantino work together in the future.
I would also urge people not to write it off........for whatever reason you might have.
