It was the worst movie I've seen in a long, long time. I can't remember the last time I had the impulse to walk out on a movie but if I'd been alone I would have. Bored me to tears, almost none of the jokes were funny, nothing happens, every scene is 1/3 too long. That's the same problem Peter Jackson had with King Kong, btw. A director is too busy smelling his own shit particles and massaging his balls while moaning sweet nothings to himself to listen to his editor saying, "Hey, Quentin, I don't think this sequence needs to be quite that long."

By about halfway through I couldn't wait for it to be over and it just kept grinding along, to my mounting disbelief. The female character was a vacuous, trembling, empty hot body. Sam Jackson was not even a tiny bit funny. I wanted to slap the various people in the theater who laughed every time he opened his mouth. "Oh! Look! A black man dressed as an older black man said something disrespectful to a white man in a movie about slavery! SWEET MOTHER OF MARY WHAT HUMOR!" God even the music was awful. I love Rick Ross as much as the next suburban-bred white kid but what the fuck was that song doing in there, thrusting its dick in your face after an hour and 45 minutes of setting-appropriate music?

The only redeeming qualities were the charisma of Waltz, Foxx and DiCaprio, who are all fun to watch. Especially Waltz. But all-in-all, what an atrocious shit dribble of a movie.

For the record, I'm not generally a Tarantino hater. I liked Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown and the Kill Bills a lot.

The movie at first seemed like it was going to be a classic.  Turned out to be a total joke.  Ruined the whole quentin tarantino legacy.  Funniest part was Samuel L. Jackson.

"They call him black Hercules"

Samuel L Jackson "Black Hercules? More like niggales"

FWIW, I liked that movie. Didn't love it , didn't hate it either. I am a Tarantino fan though. Not a fanatic but still biased.

What i liked:
-Direction.
-Music.
-The verbal duels.
-The superhero-like main character.
-The 2nd characters, DiCaprio/Waltz/Jackson.
Which are all typical Tarantino features btw.
-Plus, the ever existent extreme violence is now presented with a more comic-like way, it is not so raw, hope that makes sense. Exception : the dogs eating a guy scene.

What i disliked:
-Too long, especially the last part where he got re-captured and he re-escaped was totally needless.
-Slavery is dealt with too clumsy/superficial/obviously. Same mistake with inglorious bastards and Nazism. He is trying to make political statements in those last movies but he is not ready for that yet.
-Scenario was kinda weak, not much of a story.

Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs are aeons better!

Still enjoyed it though  ;D

bumping this post because literally everyone else in the world is wrong about this movie except me. it sucked donkey balls. actually, it tried to suck donkey balls but the donkey was like, what the fuck are you doing, bro, so it sucked rat balls instead.

I also thought it was awful in every respect. The only redeeming quality was parts of the sound track.
