Its controversy is its most powerful (only?) artistic statement. You and the others in your audience might find yourselves laughing at awkward times, or laughing at places that you have to question yourselves about later. The conversations that will arise from this film about what is OK to laugh at and what isn't is Django Unchained's signature piece of artistic merit.
That is exactly what I expected from the trailers. I do love the old Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns though. I plan to go see it this Thursday and be entertained.
