Django Unchained

Postby Zechs » Thu Dec 27, 2012 10:22 pm

I just came back from seeing it. Good movie. A bit too long, but still very good. Plus very rewarding. Christoph Waltz gives yet another remarkably memorable role. Jaimie Foxx is memorable as well, I kind of wish the finale didn't feel as rushed as it felt with him getting so much bloody satisfaction. Sam Jackson played a nice bastard in this and his character's fate was so rewarding. I can't believe I hated him more than Leo's Calvin Kandie who was good, but I kind of wanted more scenes with him.

Another regret is Zoe Bell as the masked gal in the posse at the entrance to Kandie Land (Tom Savini getting another brutal finish is always amusing). I felt disappointed we didn't see her end more or why she wore the mask? She felt like the Boba Fett of the group just silent yet the memorable one of the bunch.

A fun movie nonetheless, probably my third favorite Tarantino movie behind Inglorious Basterds and Kill Bill (I count them both as a single flick).

Just saw it tonight, too. Very good movie. Waltz stole it for me, he was just wonderful. DiCaprio was pretty impressive, too. Great revenge flick, and very Tarantinesque; the music was at times jarring, the violence was over the top to the point of being cartoonish, and the retro-stylistic choices were everywhere. Not one of my favorite Quentin movies, but well worth seeing in the theater. The cameos were a blast, too. I did not recognize Tom "Luke Duke" Wopat as the Marshall!

I think the two boycotts are hilarious.

I didn't even recognize Dennis Christopher as the Kandie's lawyer. I thought he was going to be one of the goons Kandie employed (ala James Remar's second character). Also it was wierd seeing the Crowder clan (from Justified) more or less show up in this. :P

Spike Lee is boycotting it. No idea about boycott #2.

Spike Lee is boycotting this? I guess so he can go watch more Knick games.

Spike Lee hates Tarentino (both personally and his movies). But this movie, dealing with slavery, really truly irks him (to put it mildly).

He does? But they both use Sam Jackson in their movies. How does this rivalry work?!

The movie was great. In the past week I've seen Life of Pi, End of Watch, This is 40, Les Miserables, and Django Unchained. Django Unchained was the best.

Boycott #1 is black people who think Quentin Tarantino is an anti-black bigot. Boycott #2 are white people who think Quentin Tarantino is an anti-white bigot. There's a collection of comments from a Drudge Report link to an review somewhere that were hilarious, but can't find them now.

Inglourious Basterds is also proof that Tarantino hates Jews.

Yeah, I heard that argument being made, too. :roll:

Everything he has made past Jackie Brown is proof Tarantino hates movie-goers.

I find him to be brilliant. One of my top 10 favorite directors.
