    They were filming about 4 blocks from my house about 2 weeks ago.

    I haven't been paying any attention to this till now. I seriously thought it was a biopic of Django Reinhardt! :rommie:

    My first reaction is that I love historical drama, so I'm in. Then I see Mr. Tarantino is involved. Then I see that Leo is playing the eviler, mustache-twirlier brother of Simon Legree, Foxx is dressed as a gunslinger, his wife is named Broomhilda and the slave plantation is named Candyland. Thank goodness the plantation owner's surname wasn't Disney, or there would be hell to pay.

    So Tarantino is going to do for the antebellum South what he did for WWII with Inglourious Basterds. Which means there's no telling how this is going to come off till we see it.

    I like crazy risks. I'm still in.

    Between this movie and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, people are going to be getting a pretty weird idea what pre-Civil-War America was like. :rommie:

    The script has a lot of that feel to me as well, though with a stronger chain of command between them and not just a loose association/manipulation

    I might've thought that, but I was completely distracted by the fact that Jamie Foxx's outfit is exactly the same as Little Joe Cartwright's from Bonanza.

    Even the hat band is the same.

    At any rate, it doesn't hurt my interest since I enjoy a good Spaghetti Western.

    Wouldn't surprise me if it was intentional. And well spotted!

    I wouldn't be surprised either if it was intentional. To me "Django Unchained" is like QT's ultimate homage to spaghetti westerns, and seems to be influenced by a number of different sources.

    Right around the corner. Just across the track.
    His look is meant to be an homage to both Little Joe Cartwright from "Bonanza" and Elvis Presley in the western "Flaming Star."

    Also there is evidently a song called "Django" by a jazz artist named Joe Cartwright

    Thanks and yeah, it's too exact to be a coincidence and clearly homage as Benny says. I think Foxx wears it well.

    Niiiiiiiiiiiiiice!
