Happy holidays from Quentin Tarantino? I’m definitely in.
I’m pretty excited for Django Unchained, especially for the forthcoming controversy over its use of racial slurpies. Tarantino getting into televised arguments about it will be a treat to watch.
I’m also intrigued about Leonardo DiCaprio playing an evil human being with a pointy devil goatee to match. DiCaprio is a fine actor but I don’t believe he has played villainous before. I am confident that he is more than up to the job.
I’m still shocked that Franco Nero isn’t attached to the project.
^ Dude, that would complete the circle.
Wasn’t Tarantino originally after Franco Nero for the role now occupied by Christoph Waltz?
And Squiffle, we’ll agree to disagree on DiCaprio being a fine actor but he’s played a villain at least once before (The Man in the Iron Mask).
@The Dude : Indeed!
@Hellshocked : I remember reading that Franco Nero very much wanted to be part of the project. Despite the fact that I love Christoph Waltz, if what you wrote about him replacing Nero was to be true, I think I’d be pissed.
Love to, but I’m staying with my family for Christmas this year.
That’s how I’ll be spending my Christmas Day for sure. It looks like such a great film. My mom likes Tarantino, so I might see if she wants to go. I’m not much of one for holiday family gatherings. Or holidays. Or family. Or gatherings, really. I do go to the movies frequently with my mom, though.
I can’t think of any other film that just says “holiday fun for the whole family” like Django Unchained does.
