Yes, its opening today on Christmas Day.  Obviously, the studios have changed their policy in regard to preorder posting of home video products in regard to their new theatrical releases.

Django is a terrific piece of entertainment.  Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz are superb, as are all the secondary players.  Nice seeing some great faces in cameos from decades past.


Well worth seeing.

For some people!  I wouldn't recommend this film to my sister as it would easily offend her, but my brother would love this film.  A very crowded Christmas crowd which took me by surprise and it seem like most of the audience enjoyed the dialogue and over-the-top violence.

Agreed.  Not for those offended by Tarantino style over-the-top violence.

I was surprised by the very diverse crowd (in terms of age, race, gender) that I just saw it with and it seemed to play really well. And like RAH said, there's some fun cameos.

Same for my viewing tonight at a packed auditorium. Lots of audience reaction (the favorable kind) to this film. I liked the film quite a bit but felt it lost a little something in the final act. The highlight of the film for me was Samuel L. Jackson who just dominated every scene in which he was featured. His extended reaction to meeting Django had the audience howling with laughter. (There was some very inappropriate language in this film. Big surprise.) Anyway, a solid, entertaining feature with some sobering content that is decidedly not for all viewers. - Walter.
Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.

Great film. A fun time at the movies again. Tarantino is back.... It was great that he used the original theme over the credits from the 1966 original. The bloodiest gunfight ever put on film. It's over the top and not for everyone. Great cameos from alot of character actors. Jamie Fox " It's Django, The D is silent"..Franco Nero "I Know"...Yes he does.

"The Wild Bunch" had a great gun battle at the end, but this film had a bloody "gunfight" confined to a house. That was what I was referring to.
