Has Django Unchained lived up to the hype? Is this Quentin Tarantino’s best movie yet? Can you compare it to Inglorious Basterds? Why are Leo’s teeth so yellow? Questions, questions, questions which are inevitable. I was damn excited to see Django (I am a big Tarantino fan BTW) and had to privilege to watch it on Sunday night at the overly priced Kolonade mall.

 

First things first, the movie clocks in well above the 2 hour mark, don’t forget that, stock up on popcorn and delicious Slush Puppies beforehand. The movie revolves around slavery in the Deep South, it might be a bit hard for sensitive people to watch but it was an absolute joy to me.

 

I will not give too much away…scrap that. I am not really going to give anything away; you need to go watch it for yourself. But I must make a remark about Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson, they are the epitome of what good acting is all about, Waltz is now my favourite actor without a doubt. He just kills the role, much like he did to the iconic Hans Landa character in Inglorious Basterds. And Jackson, portraying a different role to his usual preferences, and he gave me the damn creeps.

Django Unchained

 

Django Unchained is definitely one of my favourite movies of the year so far, do yourself a favour and see it. You will not be disappointed at all! PS – Keep an eye out for the clueless Klu Klux Klan members’ scene. I started crying from all the laughter, I had to sedate myself after a while. I was getting fucking loud.

 

No idea what I am talking about, check out the trailer for a nice little teaser.

  • You didn’t give anything away, you didn’t say anything at all(lol). Now, I have an entirely different take on this film. Please give my post a peek, but don’t freak out. Be cool about it. Leave an opinion, if you dare, don’t go yellow on me. Cheers.

      Thanks for the comment; I didn’t say anything other than my brief personal opinion because people need to make up their own mind on the film.
      I went through your post, very elaborate and a damn good read, I was intrigued. Thanks for that!
