this is coming from the guy that made "Bamboozled"

Spike does a movie filled with characters in black face but yet somehow Django is disrespectful to his ancestors?

and he hasn't even seen the damn movie
wow, have you even seen Bamboozled or know the reasoning behind it?

The reactions here are funny. My stepbrother is white, and when I broached the topic of the movie with him, he said he was uninterested, particularly because it's a period piece and Tarantino's track record with these films, in his opinion, weren't very good. I personally haven't seen a Tarantino film since the k!ll Bill series.. He's made some classics: reservoir dogs and pulp fiction have mad replay value with me, as well as others.... But i do feel his use of ****** is often gratuitous and times, borderline mockery.

Spike has earned the right to criticize any filmmaker he chooses, as the man has been responsible for just as many cinematic masterpieces as Tarantino-- perhaps more. I'd appreciate a little more clarification, though, as to why he feels it's disrespectful to AA ancestors-- if only to shut up the pus*y a.ss white critics who'll just call him a whiner or "angry black man", as many here already have, without earnestly addressing the reason for his discomfort.
If he's upset strictly because he has beef with ol boy on some personal sh*t then thats whatever. I'm saying if it has anything to do with him feeling like this movie "looks like" it could be making a mockery outa slavery then I can dig it. Cause I mean, from a grown a.ss black mans perspective, it DOES kinda look like that. Nobody I know checking for that sh*t (most of em aint into the movies like I am anyway) but to be honest & maybe drop a little reality on mafuhkas who may not have alotta black friends...
Everytime my peoples come through & that trailer comes on n*ggas usually laugh, & end with "fuhk outa here with that sh*t." Just being honest. I understand maybe white people think that "oh but the slaves are k!lling the slave masters. Why arent you happy?"
Cause that sh*t aint real. My grandfather told me a story about him being beaten half the death for CROSSING THE STREET! That didnt happen in "slave days."
Im grown. Im not as easily offended as I may have been when I was younger & started putting 2&2 together with this race sh*t but still some sh*t just dont be lookin right.
I loved The Chappelle Show but some of that sh*t had me like "this n*gga fuhkin up." And even he ended up realizing it. I dont know, yall can say whatever the fuhk yall want about me, its the internet. I just feel like in about 10 more years slavery will be on some Holocaust, it didnt really happen type sh*t. You can see it in these posts.
But I didnt see the movie & if I'm wrong about how I feel it looks then I'll cone back & one myself. But Jaime Foxx on some Grandad's version of Catcher Freeman sh*t? Directed by "Im down with the Brothas" Tarrantino?

Point is anyone who makes that big of a distinction (saying something is disrespectful) without even seeing the fu*king movie, is an idiot.

Spike's been an idiot for quite a while now so no surprise there.

it depends, if a person cant separate fact from fiction then i can see any historical fiction being a problem, to those people who cant

that said, i think people should reserve until seeing the movie

I like both of their movies. Spike and Qt bring alot to the table when it comes to making movies. Spike does get my respect for slamming Tyler Perry though. HIS sh*t is what truly needs to stop.

Somebody gets it.........the movie seems to take on the idea that all is fair in love and war.......even a black slave k!lling his white .......and that this was somehow acceptable....because it was the right thing to do.......its not realistic

Jamie Foxxx seems to be cooning the whole thing up with many of the comments he's made.... I've never seen Ray, so I won't comment about his acting, but I would've been much more likely to see the film if Will Smith had signed on to the lead like Tarantino wanted. Foxxx seem's like the n*gga whose just happy to be in the house rather than the field, with all due respect...

I've never seen Roots, but it seems like this sort of film (D'Jango Unchained) and it's subject matter, given the sensitive nature of the issue and persistence of institutionalized racism today, would be better served as a strict history piece (ala biopic of Nat Turner, Amistad, Rosewood, etc), than some fusing of different genres. A revenge film doesn't really address the issues of slavery: just capitalizes on raw emotions. Slavery is still too real: it's still in our blood as AA people, and affects us everyday... and until America makes amends for its crimes, it will not go away. The difference between the holocaust & slavery: whether it's glossed over historically or not, Jewish descendants still get fu*king paid for the tragedy (overstated as it was)-- just like the Japanese for being interned in WW2. Nobody gives a fu*k about the descendants of slaves, which whose surplus labor created the wealth, power, and dominance that this nation has enjoyed since the 19th century... I don't know if any of these are the reason for Spike's displeasure, but i know these are my thoughts about any potential portrayal of slavery in the media.

Kind of like Schindler's List: only a Jewish director could've pulled that off and received mainstream acceptance, given the extreme volatility of subject matter. It wasn't just Spielberg's jewishness, it was his style and brand of filmmaking that made the movie acceptable. I'm not sure if Tarantino can do this, given the type of filmmaker he is...
Great post! Props! Agree completely especially the underlined. Someone else in here said something too that I always hear my pops say from time to time (cant remember what page it was on) about it being politically incorrect for black people to question anything unless its blatantly racist.
Aint that the fuhkin' truth?

Word. But I'll reserve judgement until that BDRIP drops though. But it looks like it is what it is from the trailer though. Muthafuhkas lookin' at this sh*t like its Prometheus or some sh*t.
