I couldn't escape the idea that watching Jamie Foxx that this was the role Will Smith turned down and it almost seemed that Foxx WAS Smith at times. It just felt like it was written specifically for Smith. I wonder what the movie might have been without him.
Some really interesting blink-and-you'll-miss-them casting moments - I was like, "man that looked like Robert Carradine!" and it was! I really like the way Quentin does that type of casting but I always wonder if there was more to those characters.
Really liked it, loved Leo and Samuel L Jackson - reliable as ever, as is Christoph Waltz. Some truly funny moments in this as only Tarantino can do. 9/10
