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…
Etwas zu lang, etwas zu blutig – eine ganz normale Reaktion auf Tarantino :-) Eigentlich sind es ja wieder mal zwei Filme, die Tarantino abgeliefert hat. Vielen dürfte der erste Teil besser gefallen haben. Hier finden die Helden zusammen, hier bekommt Christoph Waltz Gelegenheit für seine brillantesten Auftritte. Wundervoll inszeniert Tarantino die Spannung zwischen der mehr als ruppigen Wirklichkeit Amerikas und der europäischen Attitüde des Düsseldorfer Zahnarztes King Schultz. Auch wenn Tarantino nicht alles glückt, trotzdem ein prächtiges Stück Kino. schoener-denken.de/blog/django-unchained-filmkritik/
+ Cast (Christoph Waltz und Leonardo DiCaprio)
- Stellenweise das Ende
Take a shot every time they use the N word.
This properly satisfies my bloodthirst.
Love everything about this film.
For me this movie lost all sense and direction when Leonardo Dicaprio and Christoph Waltz' characters were butchered. The massacre and butchery in this film was too colorful and decorative to be anything but infuriating and needlessly gruesome.
So good !
Wow... what an ending.
Nearly clocking in at the three hour mark, Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained is a fast paced, heart pounding of a good time. Filled with vibrant characters and a compelling story, this movie is no other than a success. I'm just going to say it right now, the acting in this is top notch. What else can I say? Everyone does a phenomenal job. The film has great cinematography and an amazing soundtrack. The film is just so compelling to watch you can't take your eyes off the screen.
