Looking for another Tarantino classic? This is one you’ll want to watch. We meet Django (Jamie Foxx), a slave that is being marched with other slaves to his new oner’s estate. While all chained up with other slaves, a man named Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) shows up and needs some assistance and since Django is able to help him, Dr. Schultz decides he wants to buy him. Dr. Schultz needs to find the fugitives know as the Brittle brothers. Schultz is not a man who likes slavery, quite frankly he hates it. Now that Django is helping Dr. Schultz find who he is looking for, Dr. Schultz promises to help Django rescue his wife (Kerry Washington) from notorious slave owner, Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio).
Django Unchained is directed by Quentin Tarantino. Tarantino may be the best director out there right now. He is definitely one of my favorites and I think having him as director of this film is why this works as well as it does. This movie is just a nonstop riot of humor and entertainment. This was one of the most anticipated moves to see in 2012 and it certainly did not disappoint. This was a movie that consisted of a shit ton of violence and brutal scenes to watch. It definitely wouldn’t be a Tarantino movie without all that. Look at his list of movies that he’s directed. Every one of them has some pretty brutal scenes.
I think this movie may be Tarantino’s best in the past ten years. This is just an all around great movie. I could not wait to see it and when I did I left completely satisfied. I have to talk about the acting now. The performances by everyone in the movie were just awesome. Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz were excellent together. This is the second film by Tarantino that Christoph Waltz has been in and he has won the Oscar for both of them. I thought Leo gave an outstanding performance as Calvin Candie. There is even a small appearance by Jonah Hill that will have you laughing your ass off. All the actors gave us something to enjoy from their roles in this.
Django Unchained had some excellent writing as well. This won the Oscar for best original screenplay. This was without a doubt deserved. I thought the script was phenomenal and is one reason why this movie is one of the best films of 2012 and could have arguably won best picture at the Oscar’s. This wouldn’t be your typical best picture winner, but I was happy it was nominated. It absolutely deserved the nomination and quite possibly should have won.
Overall, Django Unchained gives you something to enjoy, be horrified, and laugh at at times. Tarantino strikes again with another masterpiece! You should definitely watch this if you have not see it.
Grade= A (Excellent! A Must See!)
