Director: Quentin Tarantino
Starring: Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz
"Golly... Mr Taggart"... I haven't heard this many "N" words since Mel Brooks released "Blazing Saddles". It felt a little awkward listening to the taboo 'N' word in a public space like the cinema. Sure it's been said before on the big screen, but it felt like I hadn't heard the word nigger in ages, at least not by so many white boys, and boy does Tarantino make up for it. It's about time we got rid of this politically correct bullshit. That's what white people did back in the day, so might as well not sugar coat it.
Quentin Tarantino has done it again and turned a pretty violent and ugly (racist) movie into something quite bizarre and hysterically funny. Known for his love of Sergio Leone films, this is Tarantino's spaghetti western with emphasis on the tomato sauce; there was a lot of it splattering around the place. -- Jamie Fox plays Django our black hero who teams up with Christoph Waltz, a charismatic German dentist turned bounty hunter. They go on a mission to find his slave wife who lives on a plantation owned by some honky played by Leonardo Di Caprio.
I loved it. The film plays out like a classic western from the 1970's (it's even got Franco Nero in it) but with that unmistakeably Tarantino twist to every scene. The performances by Di Caprio and Waltz are something to watch. The baddies are also great; they are so despicably red neck that you just want to wipe those toothless grins right off their foul disgusting mouths. Once again Tarantino has come up with another classic. The music, the dialogue, the violence and the humor; it's all there you just have to go with it. Remember it's a Tarantino film. ROB
