Django Unchained (2012)

“The D is silent”

We all know how much I love my throwbacks and this movie is no different. Before I even write the review, I just want to say that Django Unchained is the BEST slave movie of all time! We can argue.

The star studded cast for this Quentin Tarantino film was stacked high as some of the best performances I saw this year came from this movie. With Jamie Foxx, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington, Leonnardo DiCaprio, and Christoph Waltz, the movie was destined for greatness from the beginning. The acting, wardrobe, visual beauty and music created an outstanding combination of pure goodie good fun in the film.

I realize that a lot of people disagree with me when it comes to this film to the overuse of the “N” word but let’s step pass that for just one moment. When has there ever been a slave based movie that has the black man be the hero, kill slave masters and handlers, and ride off into the sunset with his woman at the stories end? I’ll wait…

The movie portrays a black slave as a hero against his oppressor and finds much satisfaction in the end when he destroys one of the largest plantations in the country. Oh yeah, I was definitely here for it. Quentin Tarantino has always had a racially hard tongue when it came to black people in his films but he always made those same black people the most bad ass, slick talking, gun slinging people in his films when it calls for it.

Hands down, Tarantino did an amazing tribute to the 1966 Italian film Django. Overall, this movie was put together well and the story line was done in pure Tarantino fashion. I loved the film and completely take my hat off to the cast and crew for putting this soon-to-be classic together.

Rating: 4.5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨
