Quint sees some DJANGO UNCHAINED footage at CANNES!!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Okay, so I got a look at the Weinstein Company’s footage presentation just a few minutes ago featuring Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master, David O. Russell’s The Silver Linings Playbook and Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained.

I’ll write up the crazy-people double bill separately because I’m going to want some room to nerd out on Django Unchained.



Now, I was already won over by the time we see Jamie Foxx and a grizzled cowboy in a two shot having drinks at a saloon, but the moment I realized who the cowboy was I went from love to obsessed stalker. “What’s yer name?” Franco Nero asks Foxx. “Django,” he replies. “The D is silent.”

To a lot of people that will be a funny little moment in the movie. To western fans, particularly any fan of the name Django to begin with, this represent a blessing… from the original Django to Quentin Tarantino’s carrying the legacy of the name into a whole new world.

I’d say overall we saw about 4 or 5 minutes of Django Unchained and I gotta tell you… I wasn’t anticipating the amount of humor in the movie. I chose not to read the script… and let’s face it, just about everyone has that choice to make. It’s not most secretive script in the universe and has been passed around more times than a starlet in Robert Evans’ Jacuzzi. So, the tone was a huge surprise.

Much like Inglourious Basterds before it, I painted a different picture in my mind, in this case a sweaty southern gothic story. But once Christoph Waltz shows up in his carriage with a giant tooth bouncing back and forth from the roof trying to negotiate a deal with a slave driver I began to get the tone.

Waltz calls himself a dentist, wants Jamie Foxx’s Django and offers to buy him. When the redneck slave-driver doesn’t cooperate, Waltz does some quick violence, with some nice Sam Peckinpah-ish squib-work I might add, and suddenly Django and Dr. King Shultz are paired.



We get a basic rundown in flashback and Waltz dialogue telling us Django’s history, that he’s been separated from his wife and some evil, cruel brothers are the reason for it. Waltz is a bounty hunter and he enlists Django to help him take out The Brittle Brothers, men that Django has a particular interest in seeing put six feet under.

The footage started out serious and somber, but about halfway through James Brown comes on (The Big Payback) and the fun starts. There’s a particularly great scene where Waltz is teaching Foxx how to shoot by firing at a snowman. “Smooth is more important than fast. And more important than smooth is accurate. Once you get smooth, then you get fast!”

Foxx, of course, is a quick learn and blows the snowman’s nose off. “I think it’s safe to say you’re faster than a snowman.” That got a big laugh.

What else was there? Don Johnson at his most Colonel Sanders-y (but with a few more n-words than you typically run into at KFC), Leonardo DiCaprio with some disgustingly filthy teeth, Django in a fancy blue suit, Waltz constantly introducing his horse, Fritz, when meeting people, those aforementioned wet as hell squibs that would give Paul Verhoeven a blood-boner, Sam Jackson with a ring of white hair looking stone-cold serious, the Leone-like character title cards that were one solid color with the drawn outline of the actors as their title hit and… well, Franco Nero.

Again, this thing just looks like a ton of fun and while I was already excited for the movie I’m now officially giddy. All the location work makes the film look huge, Foxx is at the top of his game it appears, Waltz is loveable, funny and dangerous all at once and it just feels like everybody is having a blast.

The movie hits this Christmas, but I wish I could watch it right now.

I’ll be back with a rundown of the footage from The Master and The Silver Linings Playbook in a few. Stay tuned!

    Care to elaborate on this QUINT? People sure getting ballsy these days on these blogs. Was that comment really called for? You just classed yourself down by 1000.

  • May 21, 2012, 3:37 p.m. CST

    Are people not understanding...

    by jasvll

    ...that Johnson's character is using the N-word? Seems like they think the author is talking about the ethnic distribution of KFC patrons.

  • What the fuck? How does that follow? The writing on this site has always been clunky, but it gets the point across pretty clear that all he's saying is that Don Johnson is using the N word a lot.

  • May 21, 2012, 3:41 p.m. CST

    Wait I think I get it...

    by GilbertRSmith

    They think that he's saying this movie has a few more (black people) than you run into at KFC. And then instead of thinking "I misread that" and going over it again, they thought "Quint is actually straight up calling people niggers on a major media news site." Come on folks, think it through.

  • May 21, 2012, 3:57 p.m. CST

    I think Col. Sanders actually says "niggahs"...

    by jim loder it's not offensive. Like in rap music.

  • May 21, 2012, 4:06 p.m. CST

    That's the question. The blacks love Church's over KFC.

    by Nerd Rage

    You think this will be the last N-word debate about this movie?

  • ..did that fit? Still not sure about this not so "new" format...I guess they fixed the one sentence only posts so there's that. Tarrantino is quickly becoming like taking a bath as a kid (minus the chocolate floaters)...after so much of the variable QT "shtick" you find that new releases seem a bit unwelcoming at first, perhaps just more of the boring same but then, after just a few minutes of play, you're having the same not boring, but crazy fun you always had with his stuff. Still only bought about 80% of Thurman's "most dangerous woman on the planet" routine from KB1/2 - didn't Woo Ping and QT not get along on-set or something like that? Did I hear that correctly? Cause the bulk of Thurman's choreography is stiff ass compared to some of the brilliant work done on the Matrix trilogy for people who, essentially, posses no martial skill to speak of.

  • KFC, the restaurant nor the patrons, are not known for saying the N-word. So when Quint says "more N-words than a KFC" he clearly means "more blacks than a KFC". Stop fucking defending it.

    Jesus fucking Christ nerd rage, you fucking moron.

    by DanielPlainviewOnVacationInBoston

    Did you even fucking read the article you buffoon? There is no fucking way that you could possibly even hope to construe what Quint said as being racist in the slightest. Learn to fucking read or get your useless fucking carcass off of the internet.

  • May 21, 2012, 4:40 p.m. CST

    Nerd Rage, since you're too fucking stupid to comprehend:

    by DanielPlainviewOnVacationInBoston

    Quint said, quite clearly, that Don Johnson's character is somewhat reminiscent of Colonel Sanders, the KFC mascot, except that Johnson's character says "nigger" a lot more. Do you want me to draw you a fucking picture? I think we could probably even get Don Johnson on the line to explain to you that his CHARACTER is a racist, and hell, maybe even some KFC representatives to tell you that Col. Sanders wasn't a racist.

  • Not bad, not good, but too much of the same. Time for these guys to reinvent themselves and prove that their talent isn't a copy/paste of their first time charmed luck. I know many won't agree, but I hope QT will stop doing some QT and start doing other movies.

    "A few more N-1-G-G-E-R-S than a KFC"

    Is the racism obvious enough yet? The denial of the existence of racism is getting ridiculous these days. Are you afraid that if you acknowledge racism every once and a while the colored people are going to take away your toys? What's the problem?

    by DanielPlainviewOnVacationInBoston

    But fuck it. Nerd Rage is too god damn ignorant to survive on his own, so I sincerely hope his caretaker comes and helps him reread the article later on so he can actually understand it.

  • May 21, 2012, 4:46 p.m. CST

    and don't claim Quint said, "A few more racial slurs than a KFC"

    Because that doesn't make any fucking sense.

    Oh hipster stirring nonsense here...(as you caught)

    by Darth Macchio

    I think it's more "so many people like it" so it must be the usual blandness when so many people with presumably different backgrounds like something..we get boy bands, kennyG, realitytv, etc... But the odd thing with QT is so many people like his stuff cause it actually is very good. Not the greatest thing ever, if such a thing even exists, but QT is pure testament to the absolute fact that audiences simply must have story.

  • May 21, 2012, 4:51 p.m. CST

    Oh, thank God. Nerd Rage is joking.

    by DanielPlainviewOnVacationInBoston

    He fully realizes what Quint said and is just arguing the opposite to attempt to be funny. "Because that doesn't make any fucking sense." See, he gets that it's 100% what Quint meant and is going with the old Opposite Day routine. Wait, no. He's just a cock sucking retard.

  • May 21, 2012, 4:54 p.m. CST

    More N-words than you can shake a pack of skittles at on this TB.

    Wash it down with some Ice Tea.

  • How are there more racial slurs at KFC than anywhere else? Go ahead, explain it.

  • May 21, 2012, 5:03 p.m. CST

    Nerd Rage. How fuckking dense are you?

    by DanielPlainviewOnVacationInBoston

    There AREN'T ANY MORE RACIAL SLURS AT KFC THAN ANYWHERE ELSE. Hell, in Quint's estimations, there are NONE. Which is why he says that Don Johnson's character, WHO LOOKS LIKE COL. SANDERS, says way more n-words than anyone at a KFC ever would. Jesus mother fucking Christ you god damn imbecile.

    I typically run into zero n-words at KFC...

    by Crimson Dynamo

    so the presence of just on n-word in Django Unchained would be more than I run into in a typical KFC

  • So why does he say "A few more N-words than a KFC" Your either not very bright or are intentionally misleading people. The former is much more forgivable than the latter.

    by Aaron Cale

    Saying all rap is about violence in hate-mongering is like saying all punk music is like the stuff at Hot Topic or all country music is like Billy Ray Cyrus.

    by Quint

    No, take it from the one who actually wrote it, I meant that Don Johnson's slave-owner, plantation runner character who looks like Colonel Sanders says the n-word a lot... That's it. Sorry if you want to read more into it. Call it a lame joke if you will, and it might be, but you're reading a whole lot into it if you think I somehow meant that to be a racist slam.

  • May 21, 2012, 5:29 p.m. CST

    He's not unintentionally racist either, moron

    by Aaron Cale

    He was humorously down-playing the extremity of the events that would occur if such language was bandied about in equal environment such as KFC. KFC is only ever mentioned because the n-word using, actually racist character dresses like Colonel Saunders. Could this point be made any clearer for you?

  • May 21, 2012, 5:51 p.m. CST


    by Quint

    He's not wrong. That was the point of the joke.

  • None.

    by b_profane

    A fifty-four year old black guy (stated for demographic purposes). Seems obvious to me Quint was being humorously ironic or at least attempting to be so. How successfully humorous is a matter of opinion. But I don't feel he was being racist. MY ninety-nine dollars and two cents.

  • May 21, 2012, 6:04 p.m. CST


    by Aaron Cale

    A.) There's nothing wrong profanity. B.) The two biggest rappers on the planet right now are Drake (a soft-singing. ladies' man ex-actor with no violent tendencies) and Nicki Minaj (an LGBT-friendly pop star). I think your concept of the 'average rap song' is far from the pulse.

  • You know, the kind of jokes you save for when there's no black people around. The problem is you used that joke for the world to see.

  • May 21, 2012, 6:08 p.m. CST


    by Quint

    I can't even begin to understand how you're coming at your argument. If you need it underlined... Don Johnson dressed like a southern plantation owner... white suit, grey van dyke, hat... you know, Colonel Sanders. He also says the n-word a lot. You may or may not know this, but Colonel Sanders is KFC's mascot. KFC is a family dining establishment and such colorful language is not typical at family dining establishments. Explaining humor is fun! But seriously, this isn't someone trying to figure out the author's intent, this is the guy who typed those words speaking and you're going to have to trust me on this: You're trying to read something into that joke that wasn't there. You're either being willfully ignorant of that or you're winding people up. Either way, it's a free world... believe what you want to believe. But you're wrong.

  • May 21, 2012, 6:11 p.m. CST

    I'm so damn confused. No matter how hard you tried, you could never make what Quint said racist.

    by DanielPlainviewOnVacationInBoston

    It's simply impossible. No part of it, from any angle, was even remotely racist. Not even in the slightest.

    Absolutely can't wait to see some footage from this one. Foxx, Waltz, DiCaprio, Goggins... just a great, great cast through and through. Some people can say "Tarantino only does Tarantino" if they want, but, as far as I'm concerned, that's a great thing.

  • May 21, 2012, 6:19 p.m. CST


    by Aaron Cale

    And do you also blame id Software's DOOM game for the Columbine shootings? Not trying to be snarky, it's just a POV some people have that media encourages violence and some people like myself don't share it. I think parenting (or lack thereof) and indoctrination cause violence. I think the media is more or less just a representation of what people want to see or hear, in the case of violent games (GTA), movies (Godfather), and music (Lil Wayne) it is most often fictitious and vicarious. I think 99.9% of society will be mentally healthy no matter what media they absord as long as they're raised well and do not have inherent psychological defects.

Every little bit helps.

  • May 21, 2012, 7:27 p.m. CST

    And oh yeah, the movie is sounding good

    by MooseMalloy

  • But you feel that since Quint mentioned black people and KFC in the same sentence, then Quint is saying that black people eat at KFC. I only learned about this stereotype recently (that's what happens when you grow up in Southern California). But you misunderstood him. Pretend he says "Damnits" instead of "n-words". He means that there is a character in the movie who looks like Colonel Sanders, but he swears a lot more than they do at KFC. This guy says a lot more "damnits" than you would run into at a KFC. He didn't mean you would run into actual n-words (which would be pretty racist) but he means that your ears would run into a lot less profanity at the family owned establishment of KFC than was actually coming out of the mouth of this lookalike mascot of the family owned establishment of KFC. Sometimes, when we misinterpret something, it can be very frustrating when everyone else appears blind to what we are seeing. Especially when it's something that means a lot to us - like racism. I totally understand your passionate frustration, but in this case you've taken it the wrong way. It's no big deal. We're all human here. And I, for one, am glad there is someone out there that would be unafraid to call someone else out on ignorance or hate. Kudos to you, but put this one to rest.

  • You wouldn't even be reading an article about a Quentin Tarantino movie. Even the thought of discussing a Tarantino movie would make you sweat like a nigger in court.

  • Black people know good food!

  • The script is fucking phenomenal, I laughed so hard reading it throughout a one night period, I couldn't put it down. GREAT script, and this isn't rehashed Tarantino stuff, this is fresh stuff! Can NOT wait for this one!

  • I'm frankly used to it. I expect better from Quint.

    "Don Johnson at his most Colonel Sanders-y (but with a few more n-words than you typically run into at KFC)" When Quint says "n-words" in that sentence, he's referring to the words themselves not any actual people/race associated with it. He's saying that Don Johnson's character resembles Colonel Sanders, famous mascot of Kentucky Fried Chicken, only you'll hear the "n-word" spoken out of him more than you typically would at the famous fast food chain associated with the look of his character. The joke is that you typcially don't hear that kind of language in a places like that, and Don Johnson's character in the film is just a racist scumbag.That's it. In all the years I've been visiting this site I have never once heard anything racially insensitive from Quint or any of the other writers on this site.

    What gives power to the N-word

    by Nerd Rage

    Is not acknowledging racism. It's all the injustice and suffering blacks had to endure because of the attitude behind the N-word. Without that, blacks wouldn't give a shit about the N-word.

    nerd rage,

    by Brank Hud

    Sweeneydave gave a good explanation. I believe that the problem is that you thought Quint was calling black people "n-words". As in, "with more n-words than you find at a KFC" -- which would be indefensible. But that is not what he said. He said that Don Johnson uses the "n-word", and that you would not hear this word at a KFC. The only reason he brought KFC into it is because Don Johnson's character looks like Colonel Sanders, and as Quint pointed out to you later, if you are not aware, Colonel Sanders is the mascot of KFC. It could have been any restaurant, and he would have made the same joke. If Don Johnson looked like The Hamburgler, Quint might have said, "only with more n-words than you might hear at a McDonald's". Doesn't that make sense to you?

  • But it's funny that so many people claim the context of Quint's joke is easy to understand while giving several completely different interpretations of what he said.

    Don't feed nerd rage (who, by the way, is probably whiter than calcified dog shit) the attention he so desperately craves. Just let him type/babble on until he gets frustrated enough to wander off to whatever brony message board he otherwise frequents and rub a few out. From what I can tell up to this point, he probably hasn't had this much attention since his mom discovered blood in his underpants at his eighth birthday party. Besides, this will help Quint word his future jokes a bit more carefully so that this caliber of size-eleven asshole doesn't find a way to make a whole message board about it.</p><p> Meanwhile, back in the real world, I dunno about this one. It almost seems like, the better Tarantino gets as a director, the worse he gets as a writer, though he's only had one major misstep so far (DEATH PROOF, a.k.a. "Guess What Quentin Tarantino's Favorite Female Body Part is?"). Also, he seems to live and die by Cannes. I get that he digs being a part of the scene, but he's already snagged the Palm D'or a few times, how about just making a fucking GOOD MOVIE and worry about that?!?

    I don't think people are giving different interpretations. I think that we have been attempting to explain something to you in different ways because it is not getting through to you for whatever reason. Yes, racism exists. Yes it is ugly. Yes it can crop up unconsciously. But in this particular case, you are mistaken. There was no racism here, conscious, unconscious, or otherwise. I think you saw the words "n-word" and "KFC" and your radar went bananas. Please just look it over. It is a coincidence. Coincidences can happen.

I mean, people were rabid over the use of a rap song for the trailer for Gangster Squad(and before someone points out to me that this is just footage and Tarantino probably didn't put the music in there, well, same thing with Ganster Squad. People were complaining about the use of music in the movie, even though there is no evidence of that, other than it's used in the trailer).

    If Quint meant to say "with a few more RACIAL SLURS than you typically HEAR at a KFC" he should've said it. Though it's an extremely random side-remark it would be clearer than saying "with a few more more N-words than you would typically run into at a KFC". We typically "run into" people, we don't "run into" spoken words.

    Jamie Foxx? Really?

    by BeMoreFunny

    This was the best black actor available for this sweet sweet role? He does a great Ray Charles impression, but he's not a good actor. It's sad that there are so few good black actors out there that he was the apparently best choice for perhaps the best black role in a decade. Personally I would've loved to have seen Jamie Hector (Marlo on The Wire) in this role, or some other lesser known actor. Jamie Foxx is a hacky comedian and generic R & B singer. Terrible. Even Donald Glover would've been better.

    Okay, so we've identified the problem. Please think about this. Quint would not call black people "n-words". He just wouldn't. We're all film geeks here -- there are very few of us who are that unenlightened. Out of all the people responding on these talk-backs, I think you are the only one who thinks that Quint has called black people "n-words". Is that what you think of him? Just use your logic. Is it more likely that Quint has used poor wording (although it was not so poor that the majority had trouble understanding it), or that he willingly and knowingly is publicly calling people n-words? I think you know the truth and are unwilling to back down. That is sad. Because you are trying to call a good man a bad one. The error is yours. Please admit it. If you are a troll and the joke is on me, once again, all I can say is, sad.

    yes we do run into words! That isn't bad English. If you are reading a book, you might say, "look at this phrase I came across here". Or, "I ran into quite the nest of adverbs here!" Anyway, if you look back at Quint's original sentence, quoted here: "Don Johnson at his most Colonel Sanders-y (but with a few more n-words than you typically run into at KFC)" If you take n-words here to represent black people, rather than the actual word "niggers" itself, Quint would be saying that Don Johnson is somehow composed of black people. Do you see that? Which one makes LESS sense? That, my friend, is as clear as I can make it. If you are not a troll, please apologise to Quint.

  • But can you guys admit saying "with a few more N-words than you typically run into at a KFC" is a completely random thing to say. Also it seems like it was phrased to be racially charged? "N-words" could easily be used to refer to people and the phrase "run into" further suggest your talking about people rather than words.

    If you think that Quint phrased his sentence in such a manner as to make it "racially charged" then you ARE calling him a racist. And it was not random. It would have been random if Don Johnson looked like someone OTHER than Colonel Sanders. Please think about what random means. But now I really do think you are a troll. I'm only wasting my time on this on the off chance that you are a drunk teenager, and I believe you shouldn't be calling people racist when they are not, as that is serious. Your argument now has switched to become "I don't think Quint is a racist but can you admit that it looks like he is". That's bunk. Like I said before, you saw the words "n-word" and "KFC" in the same sentence and just can't let it go, regardless of the intended meaning. You have a problem dude.

    It has been clarified from every single possible angle how your interpretation is wrong on all accounts. We have all wasted a ton of energy trying to explain how wrong you are, and you STILL refuse to accept responsibility for your mistake. You are in the wrong, and you SHOULD apologize for calling Quint a racist (no matter how many times you claim otherwise, as you are clearly implying that it is a knowingly racist joke (You know, the kind of jokes you save for when there's no black people around, as you stated) when all of us know full well Quint would NEVER make the joke you accuse him of making, and he clearly didn't as we can functionally use our reading comprehension. You are accusing him of something he did not do and this is why you owe him an apology. Also, when people start these arguments about some implied form of racism that is clearly not racism, this form of crying wolf only serves to weaken the argument when ACTUAL racism occurs.

This is just you tying yourself in knots in a desperate attempt to dissolve your responsibility.

    Nerd Rage, here's your answer:

    by DanielPlainviewOnVacationInBoston

    Your "question" isn't anything like what Quint said. Quint said, basically, that Don Johnson's character resembles Col. Sanders, but, unlike Sanders, he says the n-word a lot. Quint's entire joke is that Johnson's character is a despicable racist, completely unlike anything involving KFC. Your example is an actor who looks kind of like Henry Ford, but more like a couple of "spicks" (you racist prick) than Ford did. And then you for some reason imply that those "spicks" would be in a Pinto. If your example was anything like Quint's, it would be like this: The character is kind of like Henry Ford, except he says "spicks" more than the average person that drives a Pinto. (Which still makes no sense, because you're a fucking dipshit.)

Hell, just having mentioned him by name twice in a Talkback post devoted to him has probably helped give birth to a new reddish blister on his fat, sausage-y palm that, in an hour or so more of this completely pointless debate over a poorly-phrased "joke" in an AICN article will become a leathery callous, matching the one currently being formed on his small, yet hopeful penis. Sure, we can all take small solace in the fact that fifteen minutes of his post-refreshing-the-browser-window-to-see-if-his-name-has-been-mentioned-yet-again time will be devoted to whispering "I beat you all!" in a mirror while trying hard to suck in a belly not all dissimilar to that of a seven-month-pregnant woman will prevent him from either raping his little brother or trying to kill himself with a bottle of Dad's Once Daily For Men multivitamins, but it's a vicious cycle, and it will only be repeated again tomorrow.

    by ArmageddonProductions

    As for the chicken debate, you're all wrong. KFC generally has the worst chicken out there, especially since you get the uneasy feeling that all those old urban legends about "Frankenchicken" (i.e. - biologically engineered chicken that KFC essentially created to have no feathers, feet or heads) might be true when you're eating it. Church's and Popeye's chicken usually tastes like it was made from stock they paid a hobo to filch from the side of a railroad track. You want the good stuff, you gotta hit up some small town or truckstop convenience store.

  • May 21, 2012, 11:25 p.m. CST

    nerd rage, here's a good way to look at it

    by BadMrWonka

    I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt here, and assuming you really are just, no offense, REALLY missing the point, instead of actively trolling. I'm hoping I'm right in doing so. Imagine Don Johnson's character was dressed up with a huge blond combover, lots of gold, and a weird tan. Quint probably would have said, "Don Johnson shows up, dressed like Donald Trump, but with a lot more n-words than you'd run into in a Trumpt casino." Now that we've taken the whole KFC thing out of it, can you see the joke now? The joke is that while Johnson's character might look like a beloved fast food icon, a real estate mogul, or a god damn peacock, he is virulently racist and using the n-word a lot, which is something you wouldn't expect to run into, hear, come into contact most normal situations. Now, in my example, you COULD still stick to your ill-informed guns and claim that Quint was somehow trying to make a joke about there being no black people in a Trump casino, but for that to work, there would have to be an implication that Johnson's character showed up in the movie with a bunch of black people. There was not, and there was not with Quint's original analogy. Face it, brother, you're just wrong. You misinterpreted the joke. And now, you're trying to argue that your misinterpreted version of it is racist, and asking who can prove you wrong? That is completely irrelevant. Out of the thousands of people who have read this, only you continue to propagate this completely erroneous interpretation. You are WRONG. You MISINTERPRETED what was said. Now, can you at least admit that you misinterpreted what Quint said? And no, I'm not asking you to say, yet again, "I'm not saying he's racist, it's just a bad racist joke." I'm asking if you will admit that you made a mistake. Come on, buddy, you can be the first person in AICN talkback history to admit you were wrong.

Your bizarre attempts at explaining what's happening in your apparently crumbling brain remind me of when I was teaching a class of highschoolers about density. A petulant student was freaking out because he knew that 5/10 = 2. Why could no one see this? No matter what anyone said, he was adamant that this was correct. Ore students tried their best to correct him, but, no, he remained pouty. I'm pretty sure he realized halfway through that he was full of shit, but damn the torpedoes. There was a little moment when his armor chinked (he wasn't Asian, relax!) and I could see the horrified realization dawn on him that he was incorrect. This point, for you, was above, when you stated that a better way to say the joke would be to use "racial slurs," rather than "n-word*"." this betrayed your belated entry into understanding. Regardless, thank you, sincerely, An Angry White Man** * Let's all fucking grow up and call him voldermort, not he-who-can't-be-named. ** also, calling people who don't like a viewpoint of yours" angry white men" sort of clouds your self annointed status as the holy watchman of all things racially insensitive

    i also already understand the context of the joke, but it kinda does read as quint saying theres is a bunch of n-bombs at kfc. im not trolling, but i can definitely read it as such my thing is, we all know quint was joking (minus nerd rage) but he shouldnt have addressed nerd rage 3 different times to get at the same point. that kinda felt like the classic "but i have a black friend" quote white people say after they say anything that be called racist/quasi-racist. but yea... ps: kfc sucks. popeyes is "expensive" and old. my new spot? ROSCOES CHICKEN AND WAFFLES. its fried chicken. AND waffles. all your bojangles/gas station chicken talk is void

    Not at all, read the above post. Technically, Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles is a restaurant, different story. I mean, if you're just picking up a greasy bucket of chicken, convenience store chicken beats KFC. Roscoe's has an actual kitchen involved. It would be like saying IHOP beats McDonald's pancakes.

    (BUT i know quint is making a racist joke, instead a racist comment so its forgivable...UNLESS he is making a racist comment instead a racist joke...only way to settle this is if Quint can answer if he hates going to KFC...) anyway he said "What else was there? Don Johnson at his most Colonel Sanders-y (but with a few more n-words than you typically run into at KFC)" what if he said for example what else was there? Don Johnson at his most Perez Hilton-y (but with a few more f-words than you typically run into at a gay pride parade) the switching of col sanders/kfc to perez hilton/gay pride parade may not be a perfect analogy, but think of it like that...

    by ArmageddonProductions

    Quint's guilty of poorly wording his joke, nothing else. Unfortunately, nerd rage has just had his first beer ever, so he took Quint's limp-wristed joke lob and ran with it while everybody else yelled at him. And the more everybody else yelled, the larger nerd rage's attention boner became, so it started a "thing". Now, if Quint had said (to paraphrase Redd Foxx): "Don Johnson was at his most Colonel Sanders-y, but with more niggers running around than a goddamn 'Tarzan' movie", we'd have a major problem, but I tend to think he meant Johnson's character drops a few racial slurs and Sanders, by comparison, dropped none. Like I said in a previous post, this will hopefully teach Quint to word his stuff more carefully in the future, since I think there's only six actual posts in this Talkback devoted to DJANGO UNCHAINED.

"kurt russel is dressed and acting as col sanders (but says "nigger" a lot more than you typically hear at kfc)"? that makes no sense unless col sanders is actually at kfc saying nigger a lot I understand what Quint was trying to do, I dont think it worked (it ACTUALLY does work if he owns up and say it was a racist joke, then its actually funny) PS: I guarantee you if it wasnt Quint (who is AICNs beloved contributor (no sarcasm, I mean that since everyone else sucks (minus Capone))) who wrote it, more then nerd rage would be voicing concerns.

    Regarding KFC, THAT IS EXACTLY THE SAME URBAN LEGEND/POSSIBLE REALITY I HEARD!!! That they had to change it to "KFC" because what they were using for meat no longer meets the FDA's requirement for what legally constitutes "chicken". Regardless if that's true or not, you'll notice that the average cut of KFC chicken doesn't resemble the average cut of fried chicken in any way, shape or form. Or that the word "chicken" doesn't appear in any of their advertising or menus. Makes you wonder ...</p><p> Roscoe's is good stuff, for sure. As for Maryland, haven't been back there in a good fifteen years or so, but there was a dozen or so great places just within a fifty mile radius of me that did really great fried chicken. As for the area itself, it's a giant fucking sandbar with some swamps thrown in for good measure. Most people not from Maryland usually have no idea what the hell you're talking about, unless you say "You know, that place John Waters always has in his movies" or "Homicide: Life On The Streets" (or "The Wire").

(sorry, quint, but I still point you out in king kong to friends as I'm a dedicated fan if it makes you feel better) The fact that he whole talkback is focused on this offhanded throwaway joke is hilarious. It's a rare piece (sentence!) of writing from him that's a bit incoherant and it's been analysed so much, he's got to be so frustrated with us assholes.

Period. I'll even go so far as to say, you don't belong on this site, on the Internet or anywhere else on Earth where people exist. All that said, nerd rage found his big chance and went for the gusto. As of this writing, he got about 170 responses, which represents five times the amount of Facebook friends he potentially has, and about 170 more responses than he's ever gotten to anything else he's ever done in his life.

    nerd is racist

    by Mark

    If the character in question was a clown with red hair and Quint had stated that he says more N words than a typical Macdonalds I dont think there would be any questions over it being racist, becasue its not. The assumption would be, as already clarified, that you don't expect the staff and patrons of Mcdonalds to be freely using the N word But because the character happens to look like the KFC mascot then you have projected your own race stereotypes on to his comments. Why would it be racist? Because in your mind the customers in a KFC are mainly black. Even if the customers were in the majority black, they are still unlikely to be going around using the N word to each other, unless you think that the black patrons of KFC are the stereotypical image of "Gangstas" , which futher confirms your racist veiws of KFC as an establishment and its customers, both black and white.

    by Giphangster

    There's no way nerd rage is that stupid. I think he's just trolling. Either that, or he/she has literally never heard a joke in his/her entire life and takes everything completely at face value. I guess if Quint had said, "This character looks like Colonel Sanders except he uses the n-word, whereas Colonel Sanders most definitely does not, and it's not something you would hear at a KFC," nerd rage might get it. But instead, he put a humorous spin on it and said, " hear a few more uses of the n-word than you would at a KFC," implying that by "few more" he means "even ONE would be more because you just don't hear the n-word being thrown around at KFC, which is a family restaurant in the year 2012, so it's highly unlikely someone there is going to be throwing around racial slurs." That's why "a few more" is a joke, nerd rage. Because he's not speaking literally here. Jesus, why am I even explaining it to this idiot? Honest to God. And I love the whole, "Oh, you're saying black people are just looking for racism." Listen, stupid, I'm a pretty fucking far left-wing, bleeding heart nutcase, and I think racism gets dismissed far too often in our society too, but even I can see that this was JUST A FUCKING JOKE. God damn. Do yourself a favor and NEVER watch Louis C.K.'s bit about that word. Because if you couldn't understand Quint's silly, G-rated, off the cuff little joke here, you will definitely not understand what Louis is getting at and your head might explode from rage. Or, you're just a troll like I said at the beginning of my post, and now I look stupid for being sucked into it. Go me.

    Nerd Rage, you are the most racist person I have ever seen, also the most slow in the head. By the way.... What Qunit most people with a brain have already stated, was nowhere near a "racist joke"....which is what your damaged brain sees. what you said however... "Are you afraid that if you acknowledge racism every once and a while the colored people are going to take away your toys? What's the problem?" We don't like being called colored. That is way more racist than the "joke" that you read. I'm not pissed or all hyped up over this shit. I'm really just kinda bummed that there are so many people like you out there who are so wrong in the way they view things but can not be told otherwise by a thousand wise men. Some of those poor ignorant ass hats are actually making important decisions for our country. ....or maybe you just read it wrong and didn't have the balls to say so a while ago and avoid this whole mess.

He's gotten a whole online community to do nothing but sit here and type hundreds of responses (including, sigh, mine) to his admittedly piss-poor rhetoric/"argument" over an editorial faux pas not even Al Sharpton would bother to read into. Because of that, he is now going to be empowered enough to try it again on another Talkback thread today. And tomorrow. Pretty soon, any time some AICN lunkhead writes something down that looks screwy (and this being AICN, that would be about once on the hour), nerd rage will co-opt the Talkback for a diatribe that will leave you wondering if a) he's functionally retarded, b) lonely enough that having mean things typed at him in an AICN Talkback really is his last resort for human contact or c) he's sporting an engorged mushroom cap under a pillow-mass of gut that reminds him he'll be spending another unsuccessful summer at fat camp.

As in... we all came from Northeastern Africa - Northwestern India (you know, where the Aryans come from, hence the whole Nazi BS which was developed by the real life human being that Brad Pitt portrayed in SEVEN DAYS IN TIBET)?

    Quentin Tarrantino uses a lot of N-words in his movies.

    by sweeneydave

    I am referring, of course, to his language. Defensive people (possibly those who have been victims of racism in the past) may jump to the conclusion that I am saying "Quentin Tarrantino uses lots of black people in his movies" and that I am furthermore degrading these black people with an insulting, hateful word. I am explaining because, although I don't agree with how far Nerd Rage has taken this, I understand how he can misconstrue this as racist. I don't agree with all you people who are calling him racist. Racism isn't about confusion, or even passionate slander (which is a better description of what Nerd is doing). It's about hate, or on a lesser level, insensitivity.

  • Very impressive, nerdrage. You singlehandedly completely derailed an entire thread over absolutely nothing. Time to up your game Genderbender! Surely there is some misogyny in Quint’s article somewhere. Except unlike Genderbender I kind of feel like Nerd Rage is actually being serious, which is really scary. If so, that is messed up, man. I’m glad to see that at least absolutely no one else seems to be taking his delusional side (although I have only read about half the talkback).

  • I feel like his movies have gotten too cartoonish lately. I’d like to see him return to a Reservoir Dogs level of seriousness. This film would have been a good place to do that, I think.

    And you're going nuts over a comment out of context that you don't even understand!!!!!!!!!!! Classic! This is one for the ages...the best, most-perfect example EVER of the level of idiocy present here. Specifically nerd rage...who is TOTALLY being serious. He reaches these heights of stupidity with effortlessly. And it's not just one of after another, you follow the other right off the cliff of stupidity.<p> It's just a fucking fast-food trademark icon that even you knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing, millennial, pop-culture obsessed twats should be aware off.

  • Are you people fucking serious??? Even some of the people explaining it didn't get it. BIZARRE!! He's assuming : 1. You know who Col Sander is. 2. That people usually do NOT use the N word at the KFC. 3. Don J's use of the word is heavy. Holy crap people, I used to joke that this site was full of people with asperger's syndrome, and that they were drawn to talkback to : 1. Correct people. 2. ask for clarification when for almost everyone in the world, a clarification was not needed. 3. Assume the worst and act upon it with a post instead of trying to figure out if they *got it* or not. 4. Argue semantics. 5. Pretend that subtlety doesn't exist and insist that the person trying to clarify is *backpedaling*. I'm going to stop joking about it from now on and just assume that's what's going on. It's not funny if it's absolutely true. Or at least not AS funny, and maybe kind of mean to point out from now on.

    by Red Ned Lynch

    ...licking ignorance about good chicken I'm seeing in these comments! Roscoe's is good enough chicken if you happen to be stuck in LA, but that only means it's barely passable for most of the rest of the country. And I've eaten at Ad Hoc in Napa and please allow me to explain this to everyone: Good fried chicken does not taste like a lemon. Never. Ever. Go to Willie Maes in New Orleans, Harold's Chicken Stack in Chicago, or if you're so unschooled in fried chicken that you want something milder maybe Strouds in Kansas City. Real fried chicken is served with hot sauce on the table, boys, and there better be greens.

  • May 22, 2012, 4:48 p.m. CST

    But about all this other...

    by Red Ned Lynch

    ...I didn't read Quint's words as racist but I sure have read a lot of horrifically racist garbage in this talkback. And as a white boy (technically I'm more Cherokee than anything else but distinctions that fine really didn't matter) growing up in a poor, inner city black neighborhood during the 1970s permit me to explain something: Poor people ate fried chicken. Poor people ate watermelons. Poor people ate pig ear sandwiches (my father loved them) and fried bologna and sugar rice and pig knuckles in beans. And we ate mush and grits. Shit, just writing the word mush I can taste it and it doesn't taste good. A few decades later I still think pate tastes like braunschweiger and when I see a can of Vienna Sausages I have that moment of thinking 'there's a treat'. I still sometimes buy deviled ham because when I was a kid we got cans of the ominously named 'potted meat' from the government which my father explained was potted horse meat, but man it tasted fine spread on a slice of white bread. In this nation a greater percentage of black folks than white folks are the sort of poor I was growing up. So fried chicken and watermelon became the 'black man's feast'. And that's the reason just seeing N-word and KFC in the same sentence could set someone off, even though I firmly believe that Quint in no way connected those two things in his head. And God bless him for it because that's the place I'd like my kids to grow up. As for those of you who took this opportunity, from the safe anonymity of your computers, to spew your hateful ignorance, consider this: When I was a 'minority' growing up the folks around me treated me like I belonged. Not all of them, of course, but by far the overwhelming majority. After my dad died it was two black men who did the most to mentor me, to teach me how to be a man. When I graduated from high school I was voted Most Likely to Succeed by a class that was sixty percent black and eighty percent 'minority'. They were better people than you are. Nobler, fairer and kinder. And nothing you ever post on the internet will change that fact.

    by Red Ned Lynch

    ...I never got around to posting this in your story on Argento's Dracula, but you misunderstand the mechanism that allows some of us to love a particular brand of bad movies. If our paths ever cross I will sit you down to a triple feature of say She, Frogs and Hammersmith is Out (to give you a taste of three decades of gloriously bad movies) and you will come to understand that it is the possibilities these movies glimpsed but could not achieve, their earnest embrace of a craft not mastered and their wonder at all that could be caught on camera that makes them worth loving. It's not some ironic hipster posing.

    by GilbertRSmith

    Every single time he releases a new movie, there are fewer and fewer haters to shit on the next one. It's just hipster bullshit, going against the grain to go against the grain. Instead of trying to look cool, just be glad that there are some true masters out there in our generation. Guys like Tarantino, PTA, Miike and Aronofsky are fucking rare. Not that there aren't worthwhile criticisms to be made of QT, but writing him off without a second's thought just kind of proves that you're coming from a place of being concerned with your self-image rather than having fuck all to say about film.

    You'd have to be literally, actively, not-just-making-fun-of-you retarded to think that Quint was saying something racist or making a joke about black people and KFC. If mentioning KFC and racial slurs in the same paragraph is necessarily a racist joke, then Nerd Rage is just as guilty as Quint.

    angry kitty...

    by Red Ned Lynch

    ...there are probably elements of straight out blacksploitation here, from pretty horrible movies like Mandingo and Drum. But the more I see and hear about it the more its heart really seems to be with the spaghetti westerns. And considering how much great music QT's mined from them over the years it's about damned time he made one. The original Django starred Franco Nero and was directed by Sergio Corbucci. Now after Sergio Leone Corbucci is probably the second best of the Italian western directors. He made The Great Silence, which is one of the darkest, most depressing movies I've ever watched. Django is pretty damned dark, too, and I wouldn't dream of spoiling anything about it. Anyway, Django became kind of a generic name for Italian westerns. There are probably more than twenty of them with the name Django in the title, but there was only one sequel (that I can think of) with Nero, and Corbucci didn't direct it, though he had some input. And of course Django, and for that matter all the Django movies are part of a pretty fantastically cool tapestry of Italian westerns. I'm sure if you want a list of essentials folks here would be glad to offer one up.

And, more troubling, it and IMDB are in agreement that Corbucci actually wrote the screenplay for the second Django. Alex Cox would be very disappointed in me.

It stars Nero again and Jack Palance (plus QT used music from it in Kill Bill). Oh and the Compnaeros (Nero and Palance again) and Navajo Joe, which has one of Morricone's best ever soundtracks (and was also used in Kill Bill). And some of the movies that appropriated the name Django have incredibly funny titles like Django Kill! If you live, shoot!. And Takashi Miike named his Asian western Sukiyaki Western Django and QT is in it!

When we get a chance every once in a while, on holiday weekend we'll settle in and have a mini "squint with Clint" movie festival where we turn off the phones and watch all the movies back to back.

    The hysterical thing about Nerd Rage's comment

    by Hipshot

    Is how obviously he was full of shit. quint actually made a pretty amusing joke, playing off the appearance of a star and the number of times the word "nigger" is used in this and other QT movies. It might be interesting to ask why his comments triggered such an explosion of replies. I'd guess part defense of Quint, and part cultural unease around racial issues. Of course there are simply knee jerk types and racist reactionaries who can't resist taking the bait. It's been huge fun to watch, though.

    Yeah, that was the dumbest, densest, how-badly-can-someone-miss-the-point KFC-related bullshit I'd ever seen until nerd rage showed up. I'm not black, but if I were, what would piss me off much more than an innocuous joke whose intent was evident to 99.99995% of the people who read it, would be the paternalistic crusading of some bathroom-tile-white guilt-ridden shithead like nerd rage to TAKE OFFENSE ON MY BEHALF at the slightest imagined provocation. All I wanted when I clicked into this talkback was to read a discussion about the latest Tarantino movie, but it only took one douchebag to nuke that to hell. I really need to be more niggardly about the amount of time I spend around here.

    Those people annoy me.

  • Heres that video

  • They changed their official name to KFC because it removed the evil "fried" connotation from the mind of those trying to eat more health conscious food. Go to their official website and the only place you find mention of "Kentucky Fried Chicken" is in their "History" section. And even their it's mentioned as little as possible.

    You could Google "Djano pdf" or "Django script" and find it, but my sources say Tarantino has considerably re-written it since that hit the web.

    he didn't account for people with terrible comprehension skills misreading the joke. So in conclusion the entire world should cater for morons in case their tiny brains explode.
