I’m really, really looking forward to Django Unchained. Which is kind of odd, because the last couple of Quentin Tarantino films had me tossing out my sleeping tablet prescription for a pillow.
They were boring, is what I mean. But this western looks different. It looks like Tarantino has managed to finally put his bloated ego to one side and make a movie that is entertaining on both fronts, especially for people like me that have a Baysplosion lobe in their head. Witty speech and intense action? It’s about damn time!
Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Academy Award(R)-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award(R)-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles–dead or alive.
Oh Quentin Tarantino, only you could make redneck racist Klan members with sheet shortages funny. Django Unchained is out on Christmas day in the US of A, because nothing says yuletide spirit like slavery and violence.
Look out for it to release some time next year on our side.
