Django Unchained is an American western film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. The film stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington and Samuel L. Jackson. The film was released on December 25, 2012 in North America.[5][6]
Set in the Deep South, the film follows Django (Foxx), a freed slave who treks across America with Dr. King Schultz (Waltz), a bounty hunter.

So did anyone else spend their christmas watching Jaime Foxx kill white folks? Cause I did and I loved this movie. So now there is a thread where people can talk about it with me.

    I never knew I wanted a movie that prominently featured both Morricone and hip-hop in the soundtrack.

    Turns out I wanted it really badly.

    I have to wait til April because Columbia pictures hates South East Asian countries

    It will also be heavily altered for scenes with violence and language because the Philippines has the worst ratings board ever

    And then it turns out they'll just re-release Wild Wild West.

    This was a good flick.

    I like how the advertising gave me the wrong idea about the general plot of the movie, and also leaves out several major characters, so it surprised me in a way very few movies are able to nowadays.

    As a white dude from Louisiana now living in Toronto, though, I have never been more aware of my place in white Canadian culture than I was in that theater.

    My wife wasn't the only non-whitey in that theater but it damn near felt that way, and there were parts where people laughed where I would have expected them to be horrified or appalled

    This film made me uncomfortable in all the right places and it felt weird when the folks around me weren't uncomfortable in the same spots

  • mensch-o-maticmensch-o-matic Registered User regular
    i wish more black people posted here that i could ~CONVERSE~ with because most of the ones i know are actively not commenting on this and to me it kinda looks like the Time Racists movie ive aways wanted but with all the humor replaced with an awkward undercurrent of historical insensitivity

    This movie is legit hilarious though.

    Like there's more humour then I'd say most of Tarantino's other flicks, barring Pulp Fiction.

    Yes there are parts of it that are pretty funny, but then there are parts that are supposed to just shock the piss out of you and I don't htink they were really laugh shocks

    Westerns that are historically sensitive end up depressing as Hell

    That ain't bad, but it's true

    Big part of why I love Unforgiven so much

    Man, this movie didn't really get "Tarantino as fuck" in as many spots as the other Tarantino flicks I've watched

    found an article 'bout this movie from around the time the trailer came out
    David Brothers' article at 4thletter
    and there's a couple of articles linked at the bottom for alternate viewpoints, but I can link a less glowing one here
    Thoughts on Slavery, Black Women, and 'Django Unchained' by Ta-Nehisi Coates at The Atlantic

    dunno if they'd interest Mensch or other people here but yeah i dunno i thought they were interesting even if they were from before the movie came out

    Well I mean it's hard to remember because I paid a lot more attention to the movie than to other moviegoers, but... uh
    Say when the good Doctor blows out that horse's brains

    ....also a lot of the white folks and asian teens around me laughed at the N word a few times I guess

    Like they just thought that people using that language was inherently funny

    Well as to the first thing that is not an uncommon reaction to that sort of violence, I have that reaction too. It's a combination of it being incredibly sudden and also the over the top way Tarantino tends to portray it.

    It's not as cartoony in this as it is in something like Kill Bill but it's rarely played as grit and grim either, this is an epic hero's journey after all (of a sort)

    As for the latter, it's all about context, there are times in the movie where I do think it is intentionally played for laughs, particularly anytime Samuel L Jackson's character does it.

  • WybornWyborn GET EQUIPPED Registered User regular
    Man I think him even being in the movie is a spoiler, that surprised the Hell out of me at the opening credits. Also he's maybe the best character in the movie.

    And it has more to do with, like, removing yourself from it, I guess? Like any time Shane from the Shield would talk people would laugh, no matter what he was doing, but for me it was like Tarantino was holding up a mirror that showed the ugliest parts of my own culture

    A lot of that is my own baggage I guess

    One thing I will say is that I kinda wish the trailer hadn't ruined the
    blue suit he wears to kill the brittle brothers

    the reveal was still incredible but it would have been even better completely blind.
