Hey folks, Harry here...  I love it.   As far as I know this is the first Behind The Scenes shot on Quentin Tarantino's DJANGO UNCHAINED.  Sure - it's just Samuel L Jackson with a head condom on, getting fitted for his wig.   I am curious about that moustache of his...  but this picture came from Samuel L Jackson's Twitter feed and this is in fact part of the Behind The Scenes process in the making of what I feel is Tarantino's best script yet.   This movie is going to be incredible!  Can't wait!

    by Admiral Adama

    Really? A picture of SLJ with a bag on his head? This is 'cool news?' This is the best 'behind the scenes' info we're given, on a new flick from Tarantino?? Where are the spy photos of the past? Where's the Django Unchained SCRIPT?? AICN is no longer the site it once was. It's a sad, pale comparison of its old self. It's clear the loss of Drew McWeeny and the rise of HitFix has taken its toll.

  • That's why he has the mustache. This picture is probably of him getting into make up for that play and not Django. I don't think Django has even started shooting and he probably wont be on set for a while due to the play.

    The RISE of Hitfix?

    by SK229

    I agree that this site has HUGE problems... the only reasons I come here are anything that Quint writes and the talkbacks. But I think this site is still somewhere in the top 2,000 sites in the U.S. and hitfix is pretty far behind that. I'm amazed it gets as much traffic as it does, I don't think it's that great and Drew takes himself WAY too seriously. He may have helped keep this site on track better, but again, Quint is much better and more humble and less douchey than Mori ever was.

Sadly, Will Smith or even Don Cheadle would have been MUCH better than Jamie Foxx; but I wouldn't expect either of them to go near the role. I only hope Foxx doesn't make it into a caricature.

Now when the talkbackers pointed out his mistake in his review,Harry instead of acting as an adult,accepting his mistake,saying a simple sorry and moving on,he replied that it was not a mistake but an inside joke with his father.and he kept instisting on that.

    Reading Scripts Ahead of the Movie

    by Hipshot

    Is no more, and no less than looking at the architect's design of a house before it is built. Doesn't stop us from appreciating the house. So you know the turns of the plot. Does that mean you shouldn't see a movie version of a book? Note the millions of "Harry Potter" (or whatever) fans who went to see the films. To suggest that none of them knew what the "movie going experience was all about" is simply saying that YOUR particular take on the "experience" is the correct one. Art is far too subjective. Enjoying the performances, music, visual composition, timing of the scenes, choreography of the action scenes...sfx, audience participation, sound design...a script is a piece of the puzzle. An important piece (as a writer, I'd love to think it is MOST important, but in reality everything must work together) but just a piece.

BTW Django will prove or disprove Spike Lee's claims that Tarantino is a racist.i am telling you this movie will cause a lot of stirring when it comes out.

    Where DID the Pixar Brave story go???

    by slone13

  • Oct. 20, 2011, 9:35 a.m. CST


    by Hipshot

    1) IB is a serious movie, but it is NOT a serious movie about WW2. It is a movie about movies about WW2, and as such crosses two entirely different types of films: the B-Movie revenge flick (the Brad Pitt thread) and the Art-House "serious" film. It is a trick, and a very interesting one. 2) I would say Tarantino is no "racist" in the sense of thinking blacks are inferior or wishing them to be limited socially. He DOES seem to have some odd attitudes of which he is probably unconscious. But then, that describes the mass of humanity. The script for "Django" is definitely a "black revenge Spaghetti western" as written by a white guy, just as "Jackie Brown" is a "Blaxploitation" film written by a white guy--notably that sexuality is confined to white males. Purely unconscious on his part, I'm sure. One fascinating instance of this is at the very beginning of the "Django" script ###SPOILER### Where Django is making love to his wife, and they are interrupted by white guys who proceed to gang-rape her. The only sex in the film that goes to completion is white guys with the black female slaves. Once you pick up on this "interrupted sex" trick, you'll see it in LOTS of movies and television shows: white characters complete their sexual acts (potentially leading to impregnation) while black characters do not. It's a fascinating phenomenon, but again...mostly unconscious, I'm very sure. I think the movie will be very fun...and maybe groundbreaking. We'll see.

    by Damned if I can login

    At this point, race comments from Mr. Lee kinda parallel the story of the shepherd lad crying "wolf". I neglected to use the actual title of this fable as some would inevitably construe that I am referring to Mr. Lee. I am NOT. For the record, I would love to see Mr. Lee "heal thyself", and make a film that merely tells a story about characters rather than yet another take on race, race relations, racists, or race wars. Just a story, with no mention of race whatsoever. I mean, the guy's a multi-millionaire. He certainly doesn't live in any ghetto, and hearing him yell "racist",'s kinda like Peter Buck (REM guitarist) trying to claim he's still a starving artist. Ya can't have both.....

    by Hipshot

    You don't seem to read very well. My whole point was that there is more to the telling of a tale than just the plot. A script has plot, and dialogue, and some bare-bones description. A novel has those things, plus all the texture of the language used to describe the settings and internal monologue. In a film, absent voice-over, those things are represented by the craft of the art director, actors, scenarists and so forth, but even on its own, on AVERAGE, I'd say that a produced script is the product of a better writer than a published novel. I say that without any back-patting, since I've published novels but haven't had a theatrical motion picture released. Just an observation based on knowing both groups of people. And you can have all the fun you want putting quotes around "writer" friend. The beauty of these talkbacks is that no one knows who anyone else is, and I know exactly what you'd find if you looked me up on IMDB or Amazon.

    by Hipshot

    saying a successful black man can't complain about racism is like saying a woman can't complain about sexual repression if she hasn't been raped. I mean this in all seriousness and respect: I've heard this argument from Conservatives for years, and it implies that they care about nothing except that which affects them personally. Really? Is that a standard to aspire to? We can't point out social injustice that affects millions of our brothers and sisters if we ourselves have overcome it? If that is really, truly what you believe...I feel sorry for you, I really do. We all have the right to want the world to work for everyone. Your attitude seems to be "I've got mine, fuck you." Wow.

Wrong again. When did I say I have mine? And what makes you assume I have "anything" to begin with? There are a ton of affluent (look that one up in case you don't understand what it means) people of color who DON'T say racist with every other word. Spike Lee is not one of them. And if you want to throw out the "hate" card, well then it should be aimed directly at Spike Lee. He's made *millions* off of hate. I'm damned tired of hearing people complain constantly, when they're a shitload better off than I am. Wow indeed.

    I didn't assume you were conservative. What I said was that I've heard this comment from conservatives, for years. And I have. I don't remember hearing it from a self-proclaimed Liberal, but if you are, fine. Note that I said "IF this is what you believe." I was questioning, not accusing. I don't see what movie Spike has made that is "making money off hate," although I do believe he has addressed difficult questions of racism, classism (even within the black community, see "School Daze") as well as simple human issues. I doubt he has ever accused a white director of racism who treated a black man with the same simple humanity Lee offered Ed Norton in "25th Hour" for instance--so I think he is simply sensitized to pain that reaches beyond his own front door, or doesn't affect him personally. ## Implying I don't know what "affluent" means seems beneath certainly have the right to be irritated, but I meant you no harm or disrespect.

    Spike Lee is a racist?

    by Keith Small

  • Oct. 22, 2011, 7:49 a.m. CST


    by Hipshot

    A standard tactic to try to shut people down is to accuse someone who complains about racism of being a racist themselves. It is bizarre, and shouldn't be taken seriously for a moment. "Racism" is believing there is an unequal amount of value distributed between groups, and generally that one's own group is better. Noting that human beings are tribal, and that when they have power tend to exploit it, is NOT racism unless you also suggest that, were your group in power, they would have done better.

How about I go out on a limb and say that this applies to EVERYONE? That no one is exempt? No one whatsoever. Can anyone disagree with this? Can anyone say this does not apply to them? Would that person then be a racist? Now I don't see QT having judged anyone based on their skin color. OK, so he used the word. Big fraggin' deal. How about we say, "QT seems to really go out of his way trying to be cool"? (unsuccessfully) It's time we stop being so damned bloody thin-skinned, and claiming we're SO offended by frikkin' WORDS.

    What I meant to say was, that I'm not just judgemental on someone's skin. It's everyone. I'm prejudiced towards *every* frikkin' person I see. I'm constantly thinkin'...geez, would ya look at the fraggin' pock marks on that's disgusting. Lookit that fat bastard. Geez his ass is hangin' 18 inches over both sides of the chair. Gawd, that old broad is nasty. Oh gnarly, I thought of her naked, I just puked in my mouth. Cripes that dude's filthy...I bet he smells like rotting dog, rotting dog shit smells better. Oh nasty...those are the rottenest teeth I ever seen. Oh geez she's smiling at me...puking in mouth again... It's unending I tell ya...except for hot chicks. Just can't be prejudiced against hot chicks no matter what I do. So I'm not a racist, I'm a pervert. One proud, card carrying, certified pervy. Yep, that's me. I'm one disturbed muh-fuh...but hey, I gotta be me.

    Luke Skywalker's slave

    That's how much he wanted to be in Star Wars. Wonder how much gin and juice he drank after watching that first Phantom Menace screening. I would have found a way out of my contract, or killed myself before appearing in the next two--so he gets no sympathy from me.

    Well you'd still be poor as shit.

    To the guy that said everyone is a racist it's human nature:

    by UltraTron

    Not true. Me? I can't stand boring nerds. Run o the mill folk. You'll find alot of them from all walks o life. Fact is that most people are boring as fuck. Just breeding and going through the motions- oh you never heard of what I just said kinda people. Just dim and uncomprehensing. Just shit squared.

  • Fact is it's because they would suck in any flavor

    Jamie Foxx is a jackass

    by liljuniorbrown

    Met him in New Orleans. He was loud,rude and treated the wait staff at the hotel i was in like shit. They were almost all black and hispanic and complained big time about having to deal with him ,his sister and the 20 person "staff" he had around him at the time. Total tip on his $1,200 food and bar tab...two dollars and the request that "nobody be bugging me for shit". I put in the race of the staff because of the racial arguement. I doubt he's racist, but i'm sure he's a dick head who deserves a beating

    I'd say the average human being is tribalistic

    by Hipshot

    In the sense of preferring their own racial group. But not everyone, and what we generally call "racism" is a more vicious thing, a strong belief that "they" are a somewhat lower form, less intelligent, moral, capable, etc. Often unconscious. An easy test: white people who think that, had they been black, they'd do better than black people have done. Black people who think that, had they been white, they would be less self-righteous, blind and repressive than white people have been. There's a lot of both, although people smile politely. We see more of it on the internet because of anonymity. Cowards feel safe spewing poison from behind masks.

    I think you are a hoot, and I mean that in the very best way. Yes, enjoy being a troll--that's what talkbacks are for. But know that, despite your best efforts, my respect for you just ticked upward. Good man!

    That was actually pretty funny.

    But seriously folks......

    I'll just add one more short comment. How about we all strive for a country where everyone adheres to the same set of rules? No exemptions, the same rules apply to everyone. That is all.

    We all obey the laws of gravity and thermodynamics. That's as close as you'll ever get.

    The gov does no obey those laws. They defy basic physics

    At the expense of we, the citizenry

    by Damned if I can login

    Funny how that works, isn't it...? Maybe this entire "racism" thing is something that the upper echelon did in truth, CREATE.... order to divide the massive number of lower class citizens....who could, if whatever they wanted. If I don't post any more it's because I've uncovered the ultimate truth, and have either ascended or been visited by the guys in the white van I noticed parked at the supermarket...and the gas station...and McDonalds...and Video Bob's porn store.

  • Lee admits, "I'm not against the word, (though I am) and I use it, but not excessively. And some people speak that way. But, Quentin is infatuated with that word. What does he want to be made -- an honorary black man?" Lee says he has spoken to Miramax's Harvey Weinstein and the film's producer, Lawrence Bender, about the excessive use of the word. Lee would like to find out from Tarantino why he used it so frequently in this film "and he uses it in all his pictures: 'Pulp Fiction' and 'Reservoir Dogs...' I want Quentin to know that all African-Americans do not think that word is trendy or slick." Lee admits, "I don't expect them to change (the prints now out), but I want him (Tarantino) to know about it for future reference." And Jackson came out in support of Tarantino. "Black artists think they are the only ones allowed to use the word," he said. "Well, that's bull. ... Quentin sees something cool about the way we live our lives and deal with our problems. ... Quentin actually lived in a black lifestyle for a while." Whatever that is.

    I can see Spike's pov, but I'm not as sensitive to it as he is. I do think Quentin is a very hip dude, but not terribly...shall we say "sensitive"? And probably with some residual attitudes, but nothing that makes me flinch. Just enough to add a slightly uncomfortable edge. But whatever he is, I also think he is genuinely brilliant. Any director who can make me laugh at a white guy raping a black man (Pulp Fiction) has got something very, very odd and "different" going on.
