Django Unchained Promises to be Full of Holiday Cheer
Django Unchained, the latest project from the brilliant mind of Quentin Tarantino, hits theaters on Christmas Day this year. The Spaghetti western starring Jamie Foxx as a slave turned bounty hunter promises to be full of good old fashioned holiday fun, although maybe not in the Christmas cookies with your relatives kind of way. As one of my dear friends, who happens to be a huge Tarantino fan put it, " A western about a slave turned assassin looking for the man who stole his wife directed by Quentin Tarantino? Yeah people are gonna die!"
Die indeed... I am by no means an expert on Tarantino films but one thing I do know is that they always come through when it comes to good old fashioned violence. Look at Inglourious Basterds, Trarantino's incorrectly spelled 2009 film that began with a Jewish family hiding out in WW II France being slaughtered by Nazi soldiers and ended with the entire Nazi Party, including Adolf himself, being burned alive, while been gunned down, while also being blown to smithereens by a bomb planted by the same crzed Jewish, U.S. soldiers who were wielding the machine guns.... talk about overkill...
But it is fantastic, unfiltered, cartoonish violence like this that makes Django Unchained the perfect Holiday movie. Who doesn't wish that How the Grinch Stole Christmas ended with Cindy Lou Who taking a machete to that furry green douchelord. Oh... that's only me? Well I for one will not stand for my roast beast being taken from me, I don't care if his heart is 3 sizes too small. But I digress... The fact of the matter is that when it comes to Good Ole Holiday Fun this Christmas season, cheer is spelled D-J-A-N-G-O. Remember... the D is silent.
