Fascinations with Film: Django Unchained should be renamed DJANGO HERO (No spoilers here, I promise)

7 March, 2013

I’ve been waiting to watch this for months, and couldn’t be more thrilled when I wiggled out the words on my email, “You are invited to… Media screening of Django Unchained…” etc. Shame on all of you pirates who wasted such a good film by watching in substandard quality online! Anyway, less judgement and more jabber coming right up.


THE VERDICT – DJANGO UNCHAINED SHOULD BE RENAMED DJANGO HERO

I dont usually like Western movies, but this one was wildly witty.

A sort of dramatic interplay of slavery and a slave who was free, figuratively… but not really. You might get distracted by blood bomb after blood bomb, but pay attention to the stunning soundtrack and screenplay. The script is the bomb.

My favourite character is actually Dr Schulz – His behaviour was rather bunny-like, bounty hunter on the outside and yet such a softie on the inside. His character was paradoxical on so many levels, but I won’t ruin it for you. Let me know if you like him as much as I do!

All in all, a very comical original, with Quentin Tarantino’s signature slapstick of grit, guts and glory. Don’t miss the cinematic landscaped-perfection of horses over endless hills, and all the lead characters in their hilarious hospitality. This is a movie to watch on the big screen!

Officially out in Singapore, end March 2013.
