There is some really excellent stuff in this film,(the acting, cinematography, soundtrack, etc.) but it was very difficult for me to watch. There is also a lot of violence and brutality that harkens to a very, very ugly time in American history that so many wish to sweep under the rug. Watching it made me quite uncomfortable during many scenes.

Another great movie by Mr Q. You will not be disappointing by the action, humor, satire, etc etc. Don't read the reviews or spoilers, just run to the theater and watch it:)

I don't know what happened to all my words, but THIS MOVIE is worth paying full price multiple times to see.

Well, if you are expecting violence, or twists in the plot, and of course seasoned actors doing what they do well. THIS IS YOUR FILM!!! Quentin has given us unusual perspectives of life and times before, and he's done it again. Django Unchained is truly outrageous and and off and off the CHAIN.!!!! I would recommend this movie to anyone over 16. Not because of violence (it Quentin, let's be real) but language.

Evil flourishes when good people do nothing.QT reveals in his moviesTHE most American of values is violence.He cleverly asks us to participate as observers &we get the blood all over us. It is a suckers bet. By showing polarity of bad and worse,we always choose bad.Why?The protagonist(s)in his films represent violent &vile lifestyles,aka bad people. We are trained to make every shade of grey&black into good and bad. But wait, grey is not good, it is bad,but not worse than bad, but still bad. Like Inglorious Basterds, Django is thought provoking and re-educates, or more accurately educates, us on the ignominious presence of evil in not only of historical weirdnesses (National Socialists& Slavers)but also the capacity for acting righteously in each of us(bounty hunters are legal, nazi hunters are legal). As long as we are beating the worse demons, we are better than they are. It makes you wonder how far one goes,will go,or has gone w/out examining 1's values.Spins a good erudite tale!
