wow very good

This was good look at how maybe slavery could have been turned around. Jamie Foxx role was like the igniting point in further black power movements in the 1960's. I didn't like Samuel L. Jackson role because it put him into an Uncle Tom role, which is demeaning to black people.

I was watching another movie, and picked this up from the local library because the preview looked fun. I never got it watched, as I always have about 25 things checked out, and this wasn't high on my priority list. Skip ahead two months, and I check it out again, then after renewing it twice, I decide to get it watched, and slip it in the DVD player after TV bingo at my 82 year old mother's house. (We usually watch a nature show after bingo.) Well.....she has a bit of a memory problem, and I had a hoot listening to her comments. (This is a terrible movie......isn't this a wonderful movie.......this isn't my kind of movie.....oh, isn't this a good movie?....etc.) For my part, I'm not exactly sure what I was expecting, but from the first blood spray, on, I was alternately, delighted, horrified, and amused. One thing for sure, I was entertained. I think I'll pop it in and watch it with hubby to see what he thinks of it!.....he liked it.....didn't want to watch it, I told him watch 10 min and then turn it off, well, he watched the whole thing, and said he would watch it again!

I was reluctant to watch this film even though there were so much hype about its Oscar nomination and Quentin Tarantino, due to possible violence and uncomfortable scene about slavery. Finally I got enough curiosity to watch it yesterday. Man, it deserves all its critical acclaims and hype. The violence was appropriate and not overdone, somehow less than those in "Kill Bill 1&2". The journey shared by a German and a slave was funny and heart-felt when it was conveyed through a common fairy tale about love from German folklore. I really love that scene when Waltz shot that bad guy because he just couldn't hold it ... funniest moment in a decade! Then hell followed. Somehow you thought the character played by Waltz would save them all from trouble. It was otherwise.

So tell me, when Django goes up the proverbial 'mountain' with Shultz and becomes a cold-hearted killer, is this a comment on the American Way? Or is this what we call enlightenment these days? Tarantino could be such an amazing political satirist, but he seems content to pamper our fantasies. When Django rides away with his smiling damsel, we realise the sinister aspect of delightful entertainment.

The film must have cost a fortune ... fake blood and bodies being dismembered don't come cheap. The gore and violence aside ... this film was another triumph for the genius of spite, Mr. Tarantino.

+Tarintino does the B-movies like no one does S-movies. In other words, he makes legendary B-movies seem to me, to be like non-existent, S-ranked-echelon-status movies. +Gobs of altruism alliteration galore...much and many more... +Loved the good doctor and side-kick/hero for their brilliance and lucid look into roles of more than mere mortal man, even and especially while under scrutinizing pressurizing scenes to deliver lines of whit amongst chaotic-simplicity of simian-like thinking authority figures and their henchmen. +Loved the getting into character roles of the other factions; I love to see, as if one were seeing KKK for the first time trying organize themselves and slave owners tackling the issue of a freeman blackman right in front of them; and their antics, while seeming noble to themselves in real time to themselves; and thus, shown from afar through the fourth wall window of time and space, (ie: television screen or movie projector or computer screen), that we perceive through; we can achieve modern clarity to see our own silly insane, inaneness of said or unsaid sick society and its current unawarenesses through comparing juxtaposing. +Awesome somatic flick, flavored with whimsical characters and crafted wit; way to go Tarintino...and way to go to all who made this wonderful wunderkind scenic cinema experience. A Devourer of Diligent Men's Organized Opuses; -Xandor Who; jjm 5/5

This is a nice mov ie.I would! watch a sec. time.

I hope Leonardo DiCaprio can get away from portraying the sort of misogynist creeps he plays here, and in films like The Wolf of Wall Street. He is such a talented actor that it would be a shame if these are the kind of roles he is remembered for.
