Stereotypical much ?

This is not a typical Western movie, Tarantino has indicated that in his interviews. It's a little bit of everything.

I enjoyed the movie, but there are a few things that I didn't like. I will point everything out below.

A) Historically incorrect
[Show spoiler]Current Americans are the European settlers of back then. Germans are Europeans too. Europeans, including Germans, were not known for their soft feelings towards slaves. Germans used to, how do I say this as nice as possible... Uhm... feel superior towards other people. That didn't stop in the 19th century, it was just on the rise with the creation of Germany as we know it now (Germany used to be a lot of smaller states, I believe Prusia was the largest one).

B) Rap music
This is a Western. No rap music please. Big turn off.

C) A little bit over-the-top
I know it is a Tarantino movie, and I expected a lot of violence - which I like - but some scenes were just unrealistic, like the shootout at the Big House (Candyland). I enjoyed it though .

D) Incorrect character
I am not sure, but I think the Django in this movie is based on the classic spaghetti Western 'Django' (Franco Nero). That is maybe one of the reasons Tarantino chose to use the original 'Django' theme for 'Django Unchained'. The original Django was some kind of a hero. He didn't kill innocent people. Tarantino's Django killed a lot of innocent people - or his actions lead to the dead of a lot of innocent people. This made me dislike Django - the aim does not always justify the means.

E) Scenes cut?
I am not sure about this either, but Leo's hand was suddenly bleeding. I read something about him cutting his hand (for real) while filming, but I didn't see that scene. I was looking forward to the moment he cut his hand, but I, unfortunately, missed that part.

-------
Conclusion:

Entertaining movie. Very good acting. It is a Tarantino movie, so the script was, as always, very good and entertaining. There were a few things that could have been done better as mentioned above, but this is definitely another brilliant Tarantino movie. Definitely a must watch!

Rating:
8 / 10
I havent seen Django yet but your first two points (especially the rap music) are definitely putting me off blind-buying this one. I didnt like Inglourious half as much as some people did (not a buy for me) and the trailers I saw of Django with the rap music just made me do this

Im a big Tarantino fan...or I was anyway. His films seem to be going downhill for me. And I love Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown and Kill Bill.
Leo needs new shoes...

Got round to watching it and.....just like Inglourious in a way - starts great and goes downhill from there.

All I could think was Kill Bill meets Blazing Saddles. Its got its moments (great performance from Christoph Waltz again) but I wont be buying it. And the rap music...

About half an hour too long as well.

Is this hard to get now as my local HMV has one copy? I hadn't seen it on the shelves for a long time so wasn't sure if they were few and far between.
Pack your bags, we're going on a guilt trip!

OK thanks, I wasn't sure. Just in case anyone was still keen to bag a copy I thought it worth mentioning.
