Summary: I rather enjoyed this movie and yes I am a Tarantino fan. He did an excellent casting job. All of the characters were so believable. Although slavery is never a happy topic he made it easy to talk about. The "N" word word was used a lot through out the movie so if you have a hard time hearing that word you won't get through the first 15 minutes. It kept my attention the entire time with humor and sometimes disturbing moments.
Excerpt: Quentin Tarantino once again delivers the same movie he has been making over and over again for years, this one is set in the southern United States just before the Civil War- but the song remains the same. That is not to say its a bad song, just nothing original. The movie features the expected brutal graphic violence and long dialogue sequences, and of course a complete lack of any sustained action sequences.
Excerpt: Rescuing a slave to help him track down a trio of outlaws, a German bounty hunter then forms a partnership with him and they set about finding and freeing his wife from servitude. Although it seems like more genre hopping from Quentin Tarantino, this western is really once again an exploitation-based revenge fantasy.
Summary: After consideration, I recently added this to my top movie list. It's just a fantastic movie, start to finish. It's a drama but it also has some of the funniest parts in any movie you will see.
Summary: This is one of those movies that's going to become a classic one day. Great actors, great story, just great in general. When I watched this movie in theaters, at the end, everyone clapped, and that's saying something.
Summary: Tarantino never disappoints; Django is a hilarious, super stylish, unbelievably bloody, and just plain badass film that happens to be one of the best movies of last year. The performances are all terrific, Waltz, Foxx, DiCaprio (who I normally dislike), and Jackson in particular. The script is great as well. While it may not be as good as Pulp Fiction or Inglorious Basterds (amazing film), Django Unchained is likely the most entertaining film he's ever done.
Excerpt: Directed by Quentin Tarantino Starring Jamie Fox, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo Dicaprio 3/4 The D-sign is here. All time classics of Tarantino give everyone a feeling that his movies are out of time. Django here is the story that sets still further into the 18th century. Tarantino knows what to give in the film. The bloody gun shots, impromptu shoot outs and technically smart camera zooming that give an edge to the film.
Excerpt: A freed slave, Django (Jaime Foxx), with a German Bounty hunter, Dr. Schultz (Christoph Waltz), is set to rescue his wife from the heartless owner plantation, Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). *** This movie was great on its entirety. Tarantino's take on this Western material was both entertaining and smart at the same time. The actors delivered well with special mention to Christoph Waltz. The story, the material itself was brilliant, it was an excellent job, indeed.
Excerpt: I'm sure to go to hell for watching this movie. Quentin Tarantino is my least favorite director, but I love movies and force my husband to watch over a hundred movies per year. He loves Tarantino, so I swallow my disgust and watch movies like Django Unchained and Kill Bill and all the rest of his collection. Maybe I'm warming up to the director because I didn't think it was that bad. It was funny, dark, bloody, and it had a good ending...when it finally did end.
