Life, liberty and the pursuit of vengeance.
With the help of a German bounty hunter, a freed slave sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner.
"Gentlemen, you had my curiousity. But now, you have my attention."
Quentin Tarantino has had my attention since the very first time I saw Pulp Fiction. It was the first film I ever saw where one of the first words that came to mind was masterpiece! It was my first Tarantino, I've seen everything he's directed since and I've been impressed every damn time. In my opinion he simply doesn't make bad films.
So with everything I said in the above paragraph in mind, I went into Django Unchained with very high expectations.
HOLY SHIT! Tarantino not only meets my high expectations of him but he far exceeds them. Simply put he has created another masterpiece that will…
It was only a matter of time before Tarantino tackled the Western directly. His career from the very beginning has openly referenced the genre and the great directors that made their name in it. What surprised me most about Django Unchained, his latest epic revenge fantasy, is that whilst it quite clearly references the likes of Leone, Corbucci and Sollima, as well as obscure and forgotten blaxploitation flicks, it is rarely a slave (if you pardon the pun) to the films it doffs its stetson too. Unlike Kill Bill which was essentially a finely tuned mixtape of homages and pastiches, here the references are background details and in that way this might be Tarantino’s most confident work in over a…
It's not you, Django, it's me. At least I think it is.
First off, I do not like Westerns. At all. I had my hopes pinned on Mr. Tarantino to save the genre for me, but I'm afraid he didn't. Second, I love Tarantino. I have seen all his films and while not all his films are masterpieces, there are some true gems there. I also have no problems with the 'Tarantino universe' and his self-referential, homage/collage style. It works for me. And the ironic thing is that it is exactly that that seems to be this film's biggest flaw. More on that later, first the good bits.
The acting is absolutely superb. The main trio of performances, with the…
QT has done it again for me.
Already knowing that the genius is a big fan of the old westerns, I knew this would not be failure.
Rooting,tooting and shooting all the way through with some fantastic dialogue that keeps you compelled for 2 and a half hours.
I will eat my hat if DiCaprio doesn't get a golden Oscar for this, as he fully deserves to have one now.(update:it was tough to chew)
In fact the whole cast deserves to take home an award as they all shine throughout.
The same tomato juice get's used of what you saw in Kill-Bill, so be prepared for extreme violent scenes.
QT amazes me because every song that gets used for the film is slotted perfectly just like he has done with others in the past (Jackie Brown anyone).
Loved it, now I need to update my top ten of 2012.
Jackie Brown, Reservoir Dogs, Inglourious Basterds, Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction. Quentin Tarantino's filmography reads like a symphony of revenge, blood, sam jackson and laughs. His latest entry, also a two word title, is Django Unchained. And it may be his best movie yet.
Revenge has really taken a hold of QT's writing as of late. He seems to really get inspiration from these characters that are hell bent on hell sending. If you thought the protagonist in Kill Bill was a bad ass, revenge seeking mother fucker, well wait till you see Django. Jamie Foxx is a volatile, whipped, ripped bad ass that I don't think anyone will soon forget. His play on the classic character archetype of very little…
You know how I only normally do one quote at the beginning of my reviews? Well, just to emphasise the genius of the dialogue, here’s four of the best lines from the four leads:
“Jesus Christ, Stephen, what is the point of having a n***er that speak German, if ya can’t wheel ‘em out when you have a German guest?!” – Calvin Candie
“Django! You uppity son of a-” - Stephen
“Our mutual friend has a flair for the dramatic.” - Dr King Schultz
“D’Artagnan, motherf**ker!” - Django Freeman
Well…where to start? I don’t really know. I know for sure that its Tarantino’s 4th best film to date, but that doesn’t really tell me how much I love it. It…
Film dies with Christoph Waltz
With its fearless, renegade director and his mighty auteur's stamp freeing a talented cast to attack a vital theme, Django is damnation unleashed, a film that possesses an unmistakable subversive power. This is vintage Tarantino, a pastiche of movie tropes that's packed with characteristically rich dialogue. Campy, profane, shocking, and seeping with sardonic social commentary, it also unflinchingly confronts racism in all its evil, twisted ugliness.
Django Unchained is like three movies in one. The first hour is a mildly slow but funny ironical view on racism and slavery, three and a half stars. The second hour is an exciting masterpiece in dialogue and suspense between Waltz and DiCaprio (and ocassionaly Foxx), four and a half stars. The final half hour is a disappointing, pointless and unncessary bloody and violent solo from Foxx, two and a half stars. I will delete the last half hour from my memory and remember the awesome second hour of Django.
Django Unchained is a western film directed by Quentin Tarantino. Tarantino is well known for directing films such as Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs and Jackie Brown (to name a few of his many hits). Django is the first western that Tarantino has directed.
Jamie Foxx plays Django, a freed slave. Accompanied by a german bounty hunter, Dr King Schultz (played by Christoph Waltz), Django goes on a journey to rescue his wife, Broomhilda (played by Kerry Washington), from a brutal mississippi plantation owner.
I don't like westerns. While I can't say that Django Unchained is a bad film (none of Tarantino's films are bad), it is definitely my least favourite out of all of them.
The film won two oscars. One for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role and Best Writing - Original Screenplay.
This 2012 American western is written and directed by Quentin Tarantino and film stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington and Samuel L. Jackson.
Texas, 1858. German ex-dentist turned bounty hunter Dr King Schultz (Waltz) frees a slave, Django (Foxx) from a convoy when he claims to know the whereabouts of Schultz’s latest bounty; the Brittle Brothers. Django is cared for by Schultz as they track down the bounty, and when Django proves he is handy with a pistol, Schultz takes him under his wing and teaches him to be an efficient bounty hunter.
When Django reveals he will one day track down and free his wife, fellow slave Broomhilda (Washington), Schultz agrees to help him and uses…
Einfach grandios, auch beim dritten Mal.
I'm surprised that I liked this a little less than "True Grit", seeing as how I'm not a big fan of the Western genre, but usually do enjoy Tarantino a lot. Waltz gives an incredible performance, as usual, but some things in this just felt a bit off.

The D is silent
Why don't I listen to people when they tell me to watch a Tarantino movie, the acting, action, story, everything works so well with everything that is going on. All the characters has their purpose, all the action was bloody fun, the story just made sense. It was all done so well, if this is how Tarantino can make a western, than the hateful 8 is going to be something magical.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
