10) Plot sounds predictably gripping: bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) kidnaps slave Django (Jamie Foxx) so that he can help identify the Brittle brothers, whom Schultz wants to kill. In return, he will give Django his freedom and help to rescue his enslaved wife.
8) As soon as you see Leonard DiCaprio as a dandy southern gent, you know he’s going to start speaking in that clever-clever language that educated people in westerns speak in. See Dennis Quaid in Wyatt Earp, Val Kilmer in Tombstone and Richard Harris in Unforgiven.
7) DiCaprio starts speaking in clever-clever language. “He is a rambunctious sort, ain’t he?” and “Gentlemen, you had my curiosity; now you have my attention”. Pretty good lines. This is hopefully going to be more fun than Inglourious Basterds. And the spelling’s better, too.
5) It’s weird that the trailer has been released six months before the film is out. What are they going to do with it all that time: dress it up in pretty outfits and push it round the shops? Big danger of piracy, surely.Tweet
4) There is some long-range shooting. See also True Grit.
3) There are three lines of dialougue we can’t make out, including the last word spoken. Oh well, we have six months to crack them.
2) “I like the way you die, boy,” says Django to some poor unfortunate. Another good line. QT is back. Did he ever go away? Oh yeah, Jackie Brown…
