At 1hr 15mins, Django is seen wearing sunglasses. This is 1858/9 and sunglasses proper did not appear until the 20th century. This is almost certainly an intentional oddity introduced by director Tarantino. See more »

Normally, the logo for The Weinstein Company is silent. In this film, it is accompanied with the theme music for Miramax from the early 90s, in a nod to Tarantino's first 2 films. See more »
No spoilers here. Liberal violence and lots of banter, that's the a la carte menu but today's specials include using the phrase 'son of a bitch' so many times it deserves its own drinking game and a script that generally repeats itself rather often leaving it a bit flabby round the edges and less taut than Tarantino classics. The violence, when it comes, seems provoked but unexpected and unnecessary for the characters involved as I could find no empathetic bond with any of the characters to explain their actions although being a QT film you know that unspeakable violence is always a misplaced word away.
Given the serious themes covered it just felt really lightweight and disrespectful. In interview QT seems to think he's dealt with the themes quite sensitively but I couldn't see it. It is caricatured QT and so if there is a spoiler it's that you know exactly what you're going to get.
