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…
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…
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.
"Django Unchained.. tense, thrilling, entertaining and some OTT Tarantino stuff as usual. Liked it. Still deciding on rating. 8 or 9."
My sister asked me if I thought Quentin Tarantino was afraid of being called a racist for 2012’s Django Unchained. I answered “absolutely not”, but I can understand why should ask the question. You have a white director telling a story about slavery, from a black man’s point of view. However, keep in mind Tarantino doesn’t really care about historical accuracy (see Inglorious Bastards), and in Django he’s not really saying anything new about slavery, other than slavery was bad. This is not 12 Years a Slave, it’s a Western. Django is more cowboy than ex-slave, the same way Josie Wales is more Cowboy than ex-confederate soldier.
I was unable to see Django when it was in theaters, so I’m…
Django, Di caprio, la BO, tellement beau
Another Quentin Tarantino hit. Wow !
Action + Comedy + Story + Quentin Tarantino directing = Brilliance
The film takes a powerful impacts to it's characters. You will surely love the protagonists and antagonist . The actors did a convincing job to portaraying their scripts and dialogue .
It starts with Dr. Kind Shultz in need of help to find the bounty but gets Django's help in killing them .
After that Django is granted freedom but the Dr wants to accompany Django in search for his wife because it's dangerous for him to be alone.
The Dr trains Django and makes him a bounty hunter abd after a season of killing they proceeded to find her in Candie Land.
I won't say I enjoyed the whole film because it did felt too long , I thought the last 20 minutes was boring because you were waiting for the ending .
the rating is :
93 / 100
No la había visto completa. ¡Es brutalmente brutal! Y bueno no diré mas de lo que ya saben, la excelencia de la fotografía y las actuaciones, y de todo. Simplemente quería aplaudir el guión Dios mio Tarantino es una mente, como te transporta de forma realista a una época, y la riqueza de los diálogos, serios y humores a la vez, ¡viva el tarantinismo!
Western is a tough category to pull off in cinema today in this age, but tarantino pulled it off with great finesse. Jamie Foxx played the part well of what was originally a caucasian male, who was in fact django in the first of the django films.
Quentin Tarantino’s highly stylized Western film was released on Christmas Day of 2012, where it earned over four times its $100 million budget, making it the writer/director’s highest grossing film to date. Set during the antebellum era of the Deep South, the 165 narrative follows Jamie Foxx as the titular freed slave, roaming the South with bounty hunter and dentist Christoph Waltz, as Foxx looks for the man in possession of his wife, Kerry Washington. Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson also co-star as a cruel plantation owner and his faithful servant, respectively. Nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture of the Year, the film won Best Supporting Actor for Waltz and Best Original Screenplay for Tarantino. And they…
