Forget what Spike Lee said about boycotting DJango unchained, he is not the author of what is an insult to another director’s creativity when it comes down to making movies. Spike Lee criticizes anyone who is doing what he’s done in “his heyday” and that is; producing a good film. He’s criticized Tyler Perry and quite frankly I’m tired of his two cents. Spike need to focus on his prized possession, the Knicks and Shut the hell up!!!
When I heard this movie was about slavery, I was Leary about going to see it thinking it was going to piss me off being reminded of those sad times in history. but I was surprisingly mistaken by the humor, romance, and candid story of this film and I loved it.
Written and Directed by Quentin Tarantino, Jamie Foxx is the real hero in the end, as his mentor Dr. King Schultz (played by Christopher Waltz – pictured with Foxx above) gives him the freedom as a slave, the knowledge as his mentor and some real fire arm power to go along with it…And although Quentin Tarantino has written the word “NIGGER” 176 times in his script, it was of no surprise to me because the word was as common then, as it is today.
This movie which star’s Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson (whose character you’d love to despise), Kerry Washington, Christopher Waltz and Jamie Foxx as Django. Jackson’s character was a dedicated Uncle Tom, he was the overseer of his master’s house and hated his “own kind” (other slaves) as if he weren’t ever considered apart of them. He was a free slave who oversees the other slaves — named Stephen.
“DJango Unchained” is a must see movie, for those I guess who have a mind of their own!
