    Django Unchained

    ★★★½

    Cutthroat, gritty, humorous and intense. A black comedy/western that doesn't sugarcoat any of it's references and goes in for the kill, literally.
    One of my favorite things about the film is that it's soundtrack is so diverse. It goes from a 70's themed song to gangster rap, which I thought gave the film more substance and keeps the viewer on their toes for what will happen next.

    From the transition from silent films to "talkies" during the late 1920's, in 1931 Chaplin realeased "City Lights," a romantic comedy. This delightful film is timeless and a classic. His slap stick comedy goes without saying and has an instant apeal to its audience.

    Chaplin's character is loveable and sweet and makes the film fun to watch.
