If DiCaprio’s Candie is as wonderful a villain as Hans Landa or Bill, than it’s all good for me.

If the Weinsteins could spin “Inglourious Basterds” into an Oscar movie, then I believe they can do it with anything. I’m personally still betting that DiCaprio will get nominated for this film, though I strangely have a tough time deciding the win between him and Phoenix (coincidentally for another Weinstein acquisition).

The movie looks like a fun time, and I can’t wait to see it.

I’m not feeling Jamie Foxx’s “too cool for school” portrayal of Django, as I was expecting a bit more depth and sorrowfulness beneath his vengeful character, but we shall see…DiCaprio surprisingly looks to be the one who’ll draw Oscar’s attention. Love the music, though!

Damn good stuff.


I would have liked to have seen a bit more of DiCaprio. He looks exellent in the brief scenes they show. I really don’t like Foxx’s casting, but I’m hoping he proves me wrong. Overall, the trailer was very good. I am hoping the movie itself isn’t quite as comedic or light-hearted as this trailer, but it still definitely increased my excitment for this movie.

I liked what I saw, but they seem to be playing up the cool factor as opposed to the depth that some of the characters supposedly have. I’m iffy on its Oscar prospects, but it definitely looks like a good time…

“You had my curiousity, but now you have my attention.”

Oh yeah!


Looks like a fun time! I had hoped Jamie Foxx would knock this out of the park, but he seems a bit one-dimensional in the trailer. I hope the final project is a bit darker in tone, while still being “Tarantino-crazy”, much like Inglourious Basterds was.

My guess is that it’s too lightweight for acting nominations. Maybe Leo can pull it of, but I doubt it. Also, I’d hate it if his first win was for a supporting role, as he is one of the finest leading men of his generation.
