Finally got a chance to see this one this afternoon, and it was fairly easily among the best movies this year. If I were making a list of movies in this Oscar calendar that are "must see" this movie would probably be third to "Argo" and "Lincoln" for me.
I think my favorite thing about this one is that it doesn't try to be something it isn't, it's not trying to make a deep statement about the legacies of slavery in modern society or anything, it's just Tarantino being Tarantino, and at that, it was awesome.
Cristoph Waltz was at his absolute best in this movie. Jamie Foxx was great as always, and like "Inglorious Basterds" I thought this movie was just a really well done mix of brutal action, suspense, and humor.
Solid recommendation everyone, 4.5 gigs on the 5 gig scale.

I saw Zero Dark Thirty (or whatever the name is) and thought it sucked. Please save yourself two and a half hours by not going to watch it.

I didn't think it sucked, but I don't get why it's such a big deal really, of course I talked about that one last week.
Dr. King Schultz: How do you like the bounty hunting business?
Django: Kill white people and get paid for it? What's not to like?
Best movie I have seen in the last two years
I honestly think its the best movie I've seen all year. But I haven't seen Argo, sadly. Can't get the girl to go with me. Either great Tarantino film
Well there's still cool ish like this.
The whole treat him not like a slave but not a white part was hilarious.

Tarantino likes to work all kinds of rogue references into things, kind of like how there's always something from his movies that links back to another one of his movies. In this case they reference a "Crazy Craig Koons" as part of the Smitty Bacall Gang and Christopher Walken was Captain Koons in Pulp Fiction.
He also said he likes to imagine Django and Broomhilda are Shaft's ancestors (thus her surname, Von Shaft.)
I thought the Klan guys and the scene with the bags was the funniest scene of the whole thing. The Klan wasn't founded until after the civil war, but it's not historical accuracy is a big part of Tarantino's world anyway so it works.
I thought there were.a couple pretty big anachronisms that I remember seeing, but the Klan thing was just too damn funny.
