I thought that this was possibly the best movie of 2012! Though the N-word was tossed around like a game of hot-potato, I was able to look past it and see what lay beneath, an amazing film that delivered everything a Tarantino film should deliver!

The best parts of this film for me were the reactions of the bystanders. The kids in the window, the woman strapped to the tree, the citizens in town watching as Django rides in on the horse. The film did a good job of brining me into the reality of that world and illustrating what was normal, what was socially unacceptable, and what was considered downright insanity.

I saw this movie last month and I loved it. If Tarantino's film gets people to see a movie about slavery, then so be it. And now that the nominations came out, I think it's unfair that Tarantino got nominated for best screenplay but not for best direction - when the entire cast did an excellent job! Foxx, Waltz, DiCaprio, Jackson, Washington. I agree - one of the best films of the year!

The most entertaining, hilarious, action packed, and spectacular film of the year! Quentin Tarantino delivers one of the best films of his career.

All of the dialogue is uefsul and drowned in meaning/importance. I never felt it ran long, perhaps it's because I had nachos but I thought this was Tarantino's most daring film, and subsequently his best film to date. Nobody will ever make a film like this; Tarantino makes his signature big, broad, and beautiful. It's un-toppable, in regards to the revisionist' genre.

I agree,i believe Tarantinos use of the "n" word so frequently throughout Django Unchained was more about how deplorable the word really is and its true origins in american history..He wasnt just droppin n bombs for no reason,,,There was historical purpose to it..Spike Lee is a moron..

Peter,

The videos of Best and Worst Movies of 2012 should be up in a day or two!

I'm in agreement. Great movie; however, why were Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz not nominated for their excellent supporting performances?

I suspect if the director wasn't white, the over usage of the "N" word wouldn't be a problem. In my lifetime (not very long, mind you) I have heard the word used more by African Americans, yet it's never a problem then. Not ONCE have I heard someone get on a member of that race for using that word. People are too touchy when it comes to that word. If you don't like it, fine, but don't be a hypocrite. Get on EVERYONE who uses it. And lets not pretend like Quentin Tarantino has a fetish with the word. It's a part of our culture and he has a right to use it just as much as anyone else. There is such a thing as context and it doesn't limit itself exclusively to the ongoing narrative. I don't care if Tarantino uses it five hundred times in thirty minutes. I would rather him use it that many times than hear an actual racist/bigot say it once. It makes all the difference. Sorry, didn't mean to make this about race but people give that damn word tooooo much power. We're supposed to be making progress, not being uptight about a 70s style exploitation spaghetti western that uses the word a lot. I've always heard the word portrayed in an accurate light when watching a Tarantino movie. Again, it's about context. The second we ignore that it remains the unspeakable word that nobody can say. Unless, of course, if you say it sparingly. Well, sorry, I don't want a Quentin Tarantino movie to be castrated with restraint. He never holds back and I don't want him to start now.
