@YoThatLimp: The point of that exchange was to further illustrate that "stephen" is an ass kisser, and a "house slave" who has more loyalty to his cruel master than to the fellow human beings that said master is brutalizing. I would not label it as "great dialog" either, but why you chose to highlight that one instance, and not any of King shultz great dialog is interesting.

I understand that he was writing Stephen as an "Uncle Tom", but it showcases how bad some of the dialogue really is at spots (even though Schultz really carries the movie), like Scary Movie bad. It is just not as good as I expected coming from someone who wrote Reservoir Dogs and Jackie Brown. Obviously IMO, YMMV, etc, etc

Obviously these are all personal opinions, "viva la difference" and all that. If someone writes a bad joke for a character intentionally, as something that character might say, that does not mean the writer makes bad jokes, that means the character is bad at making jokes. The joke was supposed to be really stupid, as a device to make you dislike the character of Stephen even further. King Shcultz ,Django, and Candie's dialogue all seemed really good to me. Even the majority of Stephen's dialogue-that one line aside-seemed good.

The key is to go to the Matinee showings. I only paid $7 for my ticket. The other key is to bring your own snacks.

@TheQuotedNegro: Just going off the title of this thread: Did you think that this movie really had a "lighthearted" view of slavery? I thought it did an excellent job of highlighting the absurdity of it (The scene where the slave girl was confused about how to treat Django), and the brutality of it.(Many scenes, byt specifically the dog scenes at "Candie-Land".)

I enjoyed it. I am a QT fan, but not to the point that I instantly like everything he does(I don't like his grindhouse movie, for instance). Despite the movies length, I never wished it would go faster. The dialogue was top notch,the action was exciting, and as per usual with QT, the soundtrack fit the movie perfectly.

An interesting side not on the soundtrack: I thought the song by rick ross during the end shootout was awesome, but then when I found it on youtube at home later, it wasn't as good. My theory is that the scene actually made that song better than it is.

I like mine. I've got the Kindle touch. The new paper white version sounds cool. I like having all of my books on one device. Also new books are cheaper. In addition, prices are set to come down for e-books in early 2013 due to a settlement by the major publishers due to price fixing. Only downside to e-books is you can't trade/buy used. EMBRACE THE DIGITAL FUTURE!
