Movie Review: “Django Unchained”

  • OVERALL: Quentino Tarantino does it again! 🙂
  • POINTS: “The d is silent.”; Dr. King Schulz; Django’s outfit constantly changing; Christoph Walz; Samuel L. Jackson; Leonardo Di Caprio and Samuel L. Jackson playing off of each other; confused future klansmen; shooting slavers; Jamie Foxx’s Django growing into being a human being – moving, touching, beautiful! Oh there are so many more things to love!!  Seriously though I must give a big salute to Christoph Walz for Dr. King Schulz. His acting was fantastic! I wonder if Tarantino wrote the part specifically for him. The dialogue and delivery were exquisitely crisp and beautiful. Loved it.
  • PITFALLS: There was one point that I wish hadn’t happened plot wise. However I do understand why it happened and it flowed perfectly with the story and characters.
  • FEMALE CHARACTER(S): I liked that our heroine was named Brunhilde. She had a great moment of plugging her ears that was utterly adorable, funny, and fun! We didn’t see her display her backbone on screen but we did know that she did her best to escape being a slave at least twice.
  • CULTURAL PITFALL(S): This was a slap against racism and slavery. So I just loved it. It was good to show the brutality and psychological brutality of slavery. So good to see Django getting his revenge.
  • HIGH POINT(S): See POINTS above. Oh and add Dr. Schulz telling Django the story of Brunhilde.
  • DVD/BLU-RAY WORTHY: Oh yeah. I’ll get the full package.
  •  LION PAW PRINTS: 4 of 5. Oh good Lordy it was good!
