DJANGO

DJANGO – LITTLE TROUBLE MAKER

Prime Time Ticket Movie Here Folks

If you have listened to Jamie Foxx’s satellite radio show or read interviews given by either Jamie Foxx or Quentin Tarantino, you know that they both think highly of this complicated film. We wondered if it would be worth all the hype.

Django played by Jamie Foxx is a slave who was sold to a bounty hunter to assist in finding some wanted slave handlers. In exchange for Django’s assistance, the bounty hunter (Christopher Waltz), gave Django his freedom and offered to help him find his wife (Kerry Washington) who also was also sold as a slave.

We’ll once you get past the language and difficult scenes depicting enslaved black people, you will begin to notice why this film and its actors have received the accolades that they have. In true Quentin Tarantino fashion, he films this movie in a unique way, drawing your eye to scenes that other directors just wouldn’t do. We mentioned getting past the language used in the film, so if your familiar with Tarantino’s films (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill), you already know the kids probably should stay home. Jamie Foxx does an excellent job selling the fact that he is a slave and the other actors such as Leonardo DiCaprio who plays Calvin Candie almost steals the show with his performance as a slave owner.

This film is definitely worth a prime time ticket and worth all the trouble of finding a baby sitter.
