Django Unchained Reviews
And I can also report that it holds up well on the re-watch, courtesy of the recent Blu-ray release.
This is great stuff and definitely comes recommended.
This movie makes me think of what it would have been like if slaves had rebelled and gone out after there master and try to kill them. You can imagine the pain the slaves felt but they never fought back. This movie unleashed the pain the slaves felt to white people in very violent way but get the idea across that slaves at that time would smile and the death of a white man who was their slave owner. The movie makes us think could white people endure the pains black people went through if they were slaves. There a scene where Django had to watch a slave who was refusing to fight being fed to dogs to die and this hits home hard because I could never imagined being in that position. The movie though violent makes you feel, or at least for me a little bit of hatred towards white and in some cases you'll find yourself smiling when Django slaughters all the slavers. I love the setting being the west but the town is greenville tennessee which was a big slave town even after the abolishment of slavery. The movie show the west in the eye of a black man and a foreigner. It shows how america treated the those who were not of the country. Overall the movie is very eye opening and just show that slavery was a very disturbing time in the history of the us and we have come a long way. But we also have a long way to go.

Worth a watch.
VERDICT: "Instant Classic" - [Positively Acclaimed Reaction] Usually I give this rating to a movie that I believe is absolutely outstanding and has little to no flaws in it. Audiences, who haven't seen this film, must see it right now! (Films that are rated 4.5 or 5 stars)
