Howdy!

Oh alright.... A "Southerner" rather than a "Western." :)

I post this with the Disclaimer that I am not NOT looking for History in this movie! But, trailers and previews are floaitng aorund, and a few guns have caught my eye. Besides, any time I do not see brtass framed Col tNAvy's or worse yet brass framed M1863 REmington's... a breathe a bit easier even in a "fun" movie with no historical pretenses.

:) :)

Django seems to favor, a M1851 Colt Navy and a M1863 Remington Army. Dr. Schultz favors a '63 Remington.

Django favors a M1863 (?) sporterized Sharps carbine:

Django then falls victim to a bogus Remington "Cattleman" carbine:

And Dr. Shultz favors an iron-mounted Henry Rifle:

Image

Django and Schultz use 1865/88 Remington Double Derringers but with the modern ventilated rib Cobra lookalikes:

And I see some P1856 Enfield Cavalry carbines among Don "Big Daddy' Johnson's henchmen:

I think it will be a good movie and I will enjoy it if I just watch it for its entertainment value.

I'll be watching it too in the spirit of good fun not a history lesson. After all, I guess most of us started reenacting / learning and doing Living History, when there was no such thing as a authentic Western!

Howdy!

Saw it yesterday...

Firstly, I do not like to recommend or"unrecommend" movies because like food and clothing, we all have our personal likes and dislikes. :)

On my critical scale, I "liked" it and would give it a "B-."

With being a Spoiler, it is essentially, IMHO, a revisit or remake of the Sergio Leone "Spaghetti Western" genre of the 1960's but with the
screaming agonies of Tarantino style volcanic blood eruption packs from entrance wounds. And probably a bit too much Modern Swearing. Plus I think Tarantino has a thing for the "N Word" as he uses it about 10,000 times and at times seems added just to have it pop up with every 3-4 words.

:)

The story takes place in 1858 "two years" before the Civil War (I know, but that what the titles said...)_ and then into 1859. So the Spencers and Henry's are a bit early, as are the M1863 Remington Army's and Navy's. Or the Remington double derringers.

They almost made it to the end without a brass framed Remington M1863.

Nobody reloads, but they NUG run out of rounds at six.. except for the end where one shoots 12 or 13 times in a row. :)

Again, it is not very historical, other than its theme, kind of redone "The Sting." But the music score and most of the songs are straight from Leone.

As with his role as Colonel Lansa, Christoher Waltz was more than excellently brilliant as Dr. King Schutlz, the German dentist turned bounty hunter.

I was happy I saw it.

Others' mileage will vary...

I was not impressed. Cartoonish violence and bloodshed. Very little plot.
