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…
"Who's that stumblin' around in the dark? State your business or prepare to get winged!"
A beginning shrouded in the iciness of the woods. America is at a point where even a tumbling wagon with a waggling tooth on top can signal the forthcoming force of death. Slave-owners, fugitives, and other scumbags of varying maliciousness don't just explode when shot. In fact, they practically expand across the walls in an uproarious fury, sending blood and guts to splatter against every cowering surface in the surrounding environment. Even greater is the main deliverer of this vengeance, as Django's journey is comprised of a delirious sense of Exploitation experience. He begins as a slave and ends as a wise-cracking, mythical Superhero, wandering off with his girl and a horse while the remains of the Old South simmer down to ashes.
Fuck yeah Tarantino. Thank you for this.
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.
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…
not a real fan
"I like the way you die, boy."
I should be working on anything else for school and not this review but here I am!
Tarantino is an odd one to talk about. He had never made a bad film, in my opinion. All of his films are very well made with great dialogue and seamless homage of other films to fit the aesthetic and genre.
He might be very problematic as his use of slurs like the "n-word" (especially in this movie, even though it could be historically accurate given when this film takes place) outnumbers any racist 12 year old on 4chan for the first time. Spike Lee and others have spoken out against this and yeah, I get…
a slave wants to free his wife and kills a lot of racist white people while doing it, SIGN ME THE FUCK UP!!! beatiful visuals, acting and dialogues.
Cuanto más tiempo pasa desde su estreno, cuanto más veces la veo, mucho más me gusta, tifando muy fuerte por Django!!!!
If I am not mistaken, I have seen this 8 times now, including 2 viewings during its theatrical run, 2 times with different family members, and 4 times alone.
Django Unchained is my favorite movie of all time.
I was kind of hesitant to say that when I first watched it, but right now I am positive... I mean sure that it is my favorite movie. And the beautiful thing about everyone's favorite movies is that there are different reasons and variables that make those movies resonate more than others.
Rather than giving a conventional review, I want to just say the reasons why I love this so much, and why I could literally watch it every day of the…
Can't stop, won't stop...endless revisits.
Quentin Tarantino and I have had some problems in the past. He made movies, they were supposedly amazing movies and I watched them and I was very disappointed. I didn't know what people saw in him. I was hoping for the best from this movie, but was prepared for the worst.
Django Unchained turned out to be a complete upset to how I saw Tarantino and his directing. I respect this work. The cinematography was great, especially the zoom shots that Tarantino loves to use. The music was real good and the plot was just fun. I finished watching this with a complete change in how I think of Tarantino. To him, I do not say good bye, but Auf Wiedersehen
4.5/5 stars, def recommend and def watch again
Finally got to sit down and watch this film. I must say I enjoyed it much more than The Hateful Eight.
"Django Unchained" is another bloody, violent, immaculate conception from the brilliant mind of one of the greatest directors of all time - Quentin Tarantino (he also cameos near the end of the film)
Tarantino infuses his original screenplay with masterful commentary on racism and prejudice. Tarantino directs "Django Unchained" with verve and the end result is a smart, stimulating and electric western film.
Christopher Waltz and Leonardo DeCaprio have awards worthy zest in their line delivery and performances and Jamie Fox gives first-rate work here himself and Samuel L Jackson is Samuel L Jackson in a role seemingly tailormade for him. In fact, all the role seem to have been made for their respective actor and that is what makes…
