The “D” is silent!

So I watched “Django Unchained” over the Easter holidays
I know it’s a little late but it’s so good
and I love Christoph Waltz
(despite my dad sitting next to me going “I have no idea what the movie is about!”)

I am very interested in the movie’s style, which really reminds me of Inglorious Bastards

1. historical background
Both movies depicts rather interesting preiods of time in the history in details, rough details
How Hitler was killed and war ended and what America was like towards the black before the Civil War

I always focused on the major events in these historical moments, how the time of the Nazis ended and everything that goes on in Lincoln

but these little characters, the team of inglorious bastards who sacrificed themselves and the black bounty hunter who saved his wife (which can be interpreted as a proclaimation of his freedom)
they presented to us how it would actually FEEL to be involved in that part of history

2. SURPRISE!

The way these stories are told, to me, are very contradictory
they are undoutedly cruel yet I find them funny

I find the way Brad Pitt… deal with Christoph Waltz funny,
even if it’s pretty cruel and dishonest

I also find the way Django… blows everything up funny
even if it’s REALLY cruel and bloody and super illegal

Somehow Quentin Tarantino made the blood so not scary
I know it sounded so wrong but I just counldn’t resist

The hip hop music that was in Django was so good and was such a good match with the atmosphere

3. CHRISTOPH WALTZ!

I have always liked “uncles” like Robert Downey Jr. and Daniel Craig
And Christoph Waltz is just sooooooooooooooo good!

When he was in Inglorious Bastards, I swear, if you mute the thing and only look at his face he looks so friendly and cheerful and nice
And I feel like punching him in the face soooooooooo bad the whole time

But when he was in Django, he is so nice and wise and the way he (sort of) sacrificed himself just so to get revenge at Candie for treating people so cruelly
I just love him
Ah so cute

All these make me so interested in Quentin Tarantino

Absolutely recommending the 2 movies

And it’s also funny how this 2-year-before-civil-war movie and Lincoln which is about the Civil War are out in the same year haha

Thanks for reading <|++<
