Okay, I’m back

Here are my thoughts…If I was a huge Quentin Tarintino fan and if I wasn’t
educated, a conscious thinker and Black (or White), I probably would have loved
this film… probably would have even called it a “masterpiece”



The gun slinging, horse-ridding, cracka killing, slave
revenge fantasy was in full effect! Equipped with your typical Tarintino style
Western backdrop juxtaposed to slave-era take on a blackploitation plot.




The acting was quality and so was the plot but I most have gripes with a few
things...



One being… it’s yet another White Hero movie. Ugh!!!


White Americans cannot, for the life of themselves, create a
freaking movie on the evils of slavery, Jim
Crow, the Civil Rights movement without freaking sticking a damn White Hero in
as the main damn character. Make no mistake, he was the MAIN CHARACTER! Jamie
Foxx serves only as the secondary main character (if there is such thing, I
think QT might have created this new role with this movie)

Two… why are all the most likeable characters (as in funny/well-acted/most
interesting) white???? From the bounty hunter, plantation owners, and plantation
owner’s wife to the damn KKK (it’s hard to hate a character/villain that you
laugh at, right?)



Jamie Foxx had the most redeemable Black character. Every
other Black character was humiliating with no agency/purpose/dept to justify
the rancid humiliation. All of them seemed soulless, submissive, down-right
undignified individuals who had little to no emotions (easier to hate in comparison
to the grotesquely goofy and ungroomed White idiots). One could make the argument
that that’s how Blacks seemed back in those days and my point is that that’s
why this movie was typical. Show me a movie on slavery that humanizes these
dehumanized souls in the way they deserved. I’d take that any day over a White
hero that gives a Black man a gun to kill other Whities.



Why was the worst villain of all, in this movie, Samuel L
Jackson’s Uncle Ruckus-in-flesh, minstrel show character? Why was his character
so extra????
I mean, it was too much. Just way too cartoonish, felt fake. I feel like he had
more lines than Django himself

Even worst, the most obvious underlying tone of this movie
(which I predicted) was the “why didn’t them slaves just up and kill YT? Cuz
they stoopid submissive Brothas! That’s why!” message.


It’s as if Quentin was saying with this film “Well, if I was
a slave I would have done THIS” which is such a pompous and arrogant way to
approach this complicated history




I saw it yesterday and ITA with this post. I also found most of the point of Samuel Jackson's character completely lost on the audience who were laughing at everything he said .

A bunch of hoo-haws were talking about how great it is. That, coupled with the commentary in this thread, leads me to want to watch the street copy.

Well, the analysis of the movie in this thread (on both sides of the fence) was certainly interesting. I'll still wait for the DVD or the TV airing, though. The mere idea of sitting in a theater full of white folks laughing at the subject material makes me ill and I just don't want to give QT my hard-earned money on this one (or any other of his films, for that matter). I feel if this crackhead hadn't made it as a filmmaker, he would be a serial killer. I hope that one day before I die, someone makes a movie about the haitian revolution. Now that would be an actual factual revenge plot

Just finished watching Django and it was great, i really enjoyed it and my favorite part was watching that coon azz nicca (samuel l jackson) getting two busted in his knee caps

i have no critical review cuz it really wasn't that deep to me....i loved it and it didn't bother me that the love story between jamie and kerry wasn't explored further, i get it and it worked really well for the movie cuz while it was about them, it really wasn't about their love .... i loved seeing the white ppl killed especially when he was whipping that white dude, BEAUTIFUL!

the dog scene hurt my heart ...

and i must be desensitized as fucc because that mandigo scene didn't really hit me like that, i've seen worse in boxing movies so it didn't really affect me like that

jamie was amazing and although kerry didn't say much, the scenes she was in she worked it well...her facial expressions and portrayal of a damaged woman was on POINT..she was really great and im proud of her

samuel l was amazing and he had me hating his coon azz by the end

all in all 9/10

I will make it my business to see it eventually. I'm way past watching movies for pure entertainment btw.

Now I like to look at movies to pick up on things that would go over the heads of average people. The white folks at Hollyweird has this way of throwing subliminals or making mockery of truths and my spirit is able to pick up on it rather quickly.


I do have a bootleg copy of Hidden Colors that I ain't crack open yet. I gotta watch that to see how many fallacies I can pick up on too *rubs chin*



OMG.....WATCH IT. NOW Clap
There is a Hidden Colors 2 out too. Haven't seen that one but the first one was so informative. Everyone (black, white, everyone else Stern Smile) needs to see it pronto.
