If anybody wants to know what I thought about Django Unchained
Like Inglourious Basterds it's a revenge fantasy but a great one.
It's very violent but honesty it could have been worse. Maybe I just really wanted to see white people get torn apart by whips.
Its story structure is a little meandering but it's so entertaining who cares?
It's probably the best movie I've seen this year.
As for the heavier stuff...
They say the N word a lot but come on, it's 1850s Mississippi. If you can handle "The Boondocks" you can handle this. Not everyone can though.
As for the other potential racial/sociological issues, there's a serious discussion to be had about how problematic they may be. Honestly though, it's provocative quality is appreciated and its heart is in the right place.
Plus it's just awesome.
