Well, they don't so much add sex as depict what wasn't as explicit in the books. Some fans have been bitching about that. Along those lines, some of the best scenes this season weren't actually in the book, because the characters involved didn't have point of view chapters.

Well, you can only take away so much from stills, but everyone looks pretty good, anyway. Looks like it could be a fun role for DiCaprio, although I'm not generally a big fan.

I hate that the posters pitch it as "THE NEW FILM BY QUENTIN TARANTINO" in lieu of the title. But Quentin's created an environment where he can get away with those things. He's made a brand of himself without dumbing down his product.

Also, having rewatched it now, I'm more sympathetic to the pro-Deathproof point of view, which I think I mentioned in another psot recently. I do think the girls in the second act are overwritten and that the movie has its problems, but maybe there's something to be said for the criticism re: male reactions to the film. DP is good stuff.

No, but if I'm still in the mood for fantasy after American Gods then it might be next.

Only one usage of the 70's style graphics, at the end. He'd be wise to steer clear of that completely, but I never expect wisdom from Tarantino.

What a stupid analogy.

As for the trailer, it looks really entertaining. But yeah -- I wish they'd cast someone other than Jamie Foxx. I'm not entirely sure how I feel about Waltz as the Bounty Hunter either, he still reminds me too much of his previous QT character; but it all looks engaging, at least.

Samuel L. Jackson just described Django Unchained on Letterman's show as "Shaft on Horseback."

I wasn't previously aware that Miike's movie from a few years ago, Sukiyaki Western Django (which Tarantino was also in), was a remake of a series of spaghetti westerns from the 60's. This is another case, like Inglorious Basterds, of Tarantino lifing a title and a general theme then just meandering off on his own tangent.
