This review is from: Django Unchained - Limited Edition Steelbook (Blu-ray + UV Copy)  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I had been meaning to watch this at the cinema but it appeared fate had it's way and never got the chance, so when it was released to buy, (got the blu ray steelbook edition) got home, dorito's and a chilled afternoon at home. And in all honesty not to sure how I feel about the film, it was good really enjoyed it; but it just didn't really feel like Tarantino, but then again his last few films haven't has Tarantino lost his edge? Don't get me wrong I would not want him to make clones of his other films. Kill Bill vol 1 and 2 I enjoyed though didn't really do well, death proof I liked it still had that cool Tarantino dialogue, and it was different, Inglorious Basterds, thought it was ok but not brilliant. Don't get me wrong there is a lot to like about Django Unchained.
when I heard Tarantino was doing a western ooooh yes I thought to myself in a whimsical manner. The film stars Jamie Foxx Christoph Waltz Leonardo Dicaprio Kerry Washington and Samuel L Jackson.
Poor slave Django (The D is silent but the payback won't be) is about to be sold off when the unruly slave traders are confronted by a dentist (a dentist?) a Dr King Schultz but he isn't any doctor he also happens to be a bounty hunter, Poor Django becomes a free man, happy days right, so the first portion of the film is Django and King playing bounty hunters. it then proceeds to the part where the go and try and find Django's wife and set her free to live happily ever after.
The acting by everyone is superb plenty of humour and blood, now don't get me wrong I did really enjoy this film, you can tell it's a Tarantino movie, but just misses that razor sharp dialogue we are so used to by Tarantino, well worth a watch. a good movie to watch with some mates a six pack and a feast. also do like the music used in the film, very authentic well part from the hip hop song that appears which doesn't quite fit :) come on in those days there was no hip hop music. And i'm pretty sure people didn't say mother f***er which is used a lot in this film. ha I'm starting to turn into one of those people who watch a film and criticise it for not being historically accurate :) so I would highly recommend this film
