    First Listen: Frank Ocean's Gorgeous 'Django Unchained' Ballad 'Wiseman'; Plus 'Blazing Saddles' Trailer Mashup

    "Frank Ocean wrote a fantastic ballad that was truly lovely and poetic in every way, there just wasn’t a scene for it," Quentin Tarantino said earlier this month about the song the R&B balladeer wrote for his latest movie, "Django Unchained," that he had to regr...

    Spike Lee Won't See 'Django Unchained,' Says "American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western"

    To say that Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" will be divisive is perhaps an understatement. At The Playlist, we ran three reviews to highlight the varying opinion our staff had on the film, and with the movie hitting theaters this week that chatter is only to increase. But g...

    Watch: New Scene From 'Django Unchained' With Commentary From Quentin Tarantino & New Trailer

    With Christmas landing on Tuesday this year, it's a big opening day for a handful of films, but given that it's coming midweek, studios are giving just an extra little push and reminder, before audiences settle in for the holidays. Perhaps the hardest sell of any movie arriving in theaters i...

    Beyond The Soundtrack: All The Music In 'Django Unchained' Including Cuts By RZA, Richie Havens, Ennio Morricone & More

    Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" hasn't even hit theaters yet, but the bloody, sprawling comedic (and yes, kinda messy) slave drama/spaghetti western is still the talk of the moment (we ran three different reviews of the movie we were all so eager to discuss it). By this point you've likely al...

    Samuel L. Jackson Can't Wait For The 5 Hour Cut Of 'Django Unchained'; Dreams Of Nick Fury Cameo In 'Breaking Bad' Quashed

    Slavery, racism, Mandingo negro warriors that fight each other to the death... did Samuel L. Jackson have any reservations when he read the script to Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained"? "Nope," he said matter a factly in our recent interview with the actor. "I read it straight through, laughed a...

    Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington On Race, the N-Word & 'Django Unchained' (Video Interview)

    When I asked Jamie Foxx and Kerry Washington if they had refused anything that director Quentin Tarantino asked them to do or say in Django Unchained – you can imagine that these very smart African-American actors, playing slaves, might tell their white director where to draw the line -- ...

    Christoph Waltz on Quentin, Race in America, and 'Django Unchained' (Video Interview)

    Django Unchained proves that Christoph Waltz’s amazing performance as a Nazi in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds was no fluke. He is every bit as vivid, and sly in a completely different way, in Tarantino’s latest film about slavery, violence and pre-Civil War America....

    Quentin Tarantino Wrote A Story About A Well-Endowed Black Man Called Jody The Grinder That He Couldn't Fit Into 'Death Proof'

    Quentin Tarantino loves to write, that much is certain. And indeed, at one point "Django Unchained" was so long, Harvey Weinstein tossed out the idea of splitting it into two movies, "Kill Bill"-style. Of course, that didn't happen, but material was left on the cutting room floor, including a showdo...

    Jamie Foxx Discusses His Favorite Deleted Scene In ‘Django Unchained’

    At two hours and forty five minutes, you know that Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” is sprawling and long. So long that Harvey Weinstein suggested cutting the films in two ala “Kill Bill” in the editing room (the idea was nixed obviously). And with a script that was 166 pages (roughly 3 hours)...

    The Best Films of 2012

    My top three films of 2012 were easy to name, if not to order. Each is amazing, each wildly different from the other two, but they form a trio of incomparable experiences. There’s a deep dropoff from those three to the others, all fantastic --  though more flawed. I didn’t reac...
