Django Unchained (2012)

Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
Starring: Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leondardo DiCaprio

     Django Unchained is set in 19th century just two years before the civil war. A German bounty hunter/dentist, Schultz, rescues Django from slavery and then enlists him in the search for the notorious Brittle Brothers. In return, Schultz will grant him his freedom and help him find his wife who was sold years back.

     The film is directed by the immensely talented Quentin Tarantino. It is uniquely his. The movie is gore, violent, has many unexpected turns of events and sometimes funny. Like many of his film the writing takes center stage. The dialogue is amusing, every major characters were given time to develop. The use of music is like no movie you’ve seen. 
During the course of the movie, you’ll hear country music, opera, Spanish songs, Beethoven, and yes RAP music as well.

     The film is not for everyone. Many will deem it too violent, too offensive and I agree. But then again, I love revenge stories. They are the best. Quentin put a movie out every 3-4 years or so. I find myself waiting for them impatiently and I’m never disappointed.
