Django Unchained

16 Jan

Django Unchained PosterOn the hunt for the Brittle brothers, a bounty hunter by the name of Dr. King Shultz (Christoph Waltz) frees Django (Jamie Foxx) who recognises the men he’s looking for. Once done, Shultz trains Django and they partner up through the winter to finally end up at plantation owner Calvin Candie’s (Lenardo DiCaprio) candy land in search of Django’s wife Broomhilda von Shaft (Kerry Washington).

Set in the year 1858, Quentin Tarantino depicts an America where black slavery is prominent throughout society and Django in his pretty clothes, riding a horse stands out like an anomaly that lead to a few loosely put together plots and the banter throughout the film.

I hadn’t seen the original Iron Man movie in the theatre and so I blamed that to not liking it i.e. the big screen awe effect of having a super hero bash different villains was missing. So when I heard about the sequel, decided to watch it in the theatre. Till yesterday morning, I thought it was a 3D movie but on checking the cinestar website I realized it wasn’t. I think not having it in 3D was a huge mistake cause even though 3D is over rated, I’d think a movie like this would have gained a lot from it.

11pm show at Mall of the Emirates, I was a little excited after seeing everyone else looking forward to be amazed by Tony Stark aka Iron Man. 2 hours later and the only word that came to my head was rubbish. That’s how bad I thought the movie was even though everyone else seemed to like it in bits. Continue reading
