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…
Hateful Eight needs to hurry the eff up man. As I revisited my favorite gem from Mr. Tarantino, bro you had my curiosity with earlier films but now you have my attention, I couldn't repeat the dialogue enough because this, was the first thing to get me to call him The King of Dialogue.
This film works on all cylinders. It isn't overlong. Christoph Waltz did one hell of a job being the Dentist Assassin. You can claim whatever you want, but personally, this is Quentin Tarantino at his best. His peak. This film is fucking glorious. Leonardo is a great villain. Jamie Foxx does great work, too. The cinematography is great. The direction is great. The humour is great. Every fucking thing works, damn it!
Absolutely loved it! The plot is fantastic and the constant on the edge of your seat feeling you get from this film never loses my attention. The last 15 minutes is just fantastic!
I spent all 3 hours hoping it wouldnt end.
Two years before the civi war, Django (Jamie Foxx),a slave,finds himself accompanying an unorthodox German bounty hunter named Dr.King Schultz(Christoph Walts)on a mission...fighting for no more slavery Django finds glory.
Leonardo DiCaprio takes a papper roll in this Tarantino film evendow he is not so principal he leaves a mark on the film with a great personality.
I hate the excessive stupid violence but in a well done cuality in this revenge film,evendow for other people this might be of their taste i hate it.
A hilarious, outrageous, and thrilling western (that's actually set in the south) that blows through the topics of slavery and racism uninhibited by the societal taboos associated with them. Tarantino comes through yet again bringing a story with excellent direction, writing, vision, and stellar performances.
The plot is very character-driven and the cast certainly delivers some of their best performances. Jamie Foxx convincingly shows Django's transformation from a slave to a free man and a bounty hunter. Christoph Waltz steals every scene he is in with charisma and charm and entertains audiences with how he is able to rescue his situation from the holes he has dug for himself. Samuel Jackson’s character, Stephen, raises some interesting questions. As the most…
A very good film with a great direction and srory by Quebtin Tarantino.
Highly entertaining, although the film went far beyond its cut-off point.
I barely got through this on the second viewing. Disgracefully excessive, aimless, slow and masturbatory, the fact that something as simultaneously juvenile and pretentious as this is celebrated as one of the defining films of this generation is an embarrassment to the medium. Quentin Tarantino is probably the most overrated film maker in history, and that's saying something.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
