Eight years after the Joker's reign of anarchy, Batman, with the help of the enigmatic Catwoman, is forced from his exile to save Gotham City, now on the edge of total annihilation, from the brutal guerrilla terrorist Bane.
In 1858, a bounty hunter named Schultz seeks out a slave named Django and buys him because he needs him to find some men he is looking for. After finding them, Django wants to find his wife, Brunhilde, who along with him were sold separately by his former owner for trying to escape. Schultz offers to help him if he chooses to stay with him and be his partner. Eventually they learn that she was sold to a plantation in Mississipi. Knowing they can't just go in and say they want her, they come up with a plan so that the owner will welcome them into his home and they can find a way. Written by
As Calvin Candie rides in the carriage towards his house the smoke from his cigarette blows away to his right. When the carriage then parks up for him to introduce Schultz and Django to Stephen the smoke is blowing across in front of the house, i.e. in the opposite direction. See more »

The movie had several points where something could have been made with it or done with the characters - but all were lost...
Waltz was amazing and really the only saving grace to the movie. Had he not been in it, I would not have finished it. DeCaprio was decent, and definitely the second best in a movie of underwritten characters. Jackson was a horrible actor in a horrible role - amazing that he felt it was an Oscar worthy performance...
The special effects were over the top and not realistic - but I think that gore is what it was going for - but between that and the violence, I was lost in the point.
Definitely not worth the Oscar buzz it got, and another loser from a writer/director that has so much undirected, unrefined talent...
