Wow, is all I can say about this movie, it was good. But oh so very graphic. I guess you can say it’s classic Tarantino, in all it’s glory, the subject matter was again very hard to watch and then with Tarantino’s graphic/disturbing images it made it all the more difficult. Although the story was very interesting and kept building. Very good writing I must say. Being 2 hours and 45 minutes, Django needed to have a flow to the story which was accomplished. Tarantino’s casting was also very interesting and right, as well as a bit humorous. How nice to see some familiar faces I hadn’t seen in a while. Like Tom Wopat from Dukes of Hazzard, and Don Johnson from Miami Vice.
Having said all of that there are cautions, one, no children under 16 should see this, two, there are flagrant “F” bombs. Also, the dreaded “N ” word was used throughout the movie, because of the subject matter. This may offend people, so be warned. I also don’t think it’s a movie I need to see twice once was more than enough, I think I give it a B. Shazza ~ Musings&Rants
