Saw the movie yesterday and I must confess it's one of the best Tarantino movie I have ever seen. I do not understand what the whole controversy was about the racial nature of the movie. I mean, this was a movie about the era of slave trade and everything that was depicted in the movie really happened to slaves in those days.

They were neutered at will, fed to dogs, made to wrestle bears and one another in blood sports for the entertainment of their white masters and YES! They were called NIGGERS and required to respond with a "Yessa Massa" when so called. There were also "Uncle Toms" like the character played so well by Samuel L. Jackson who sold their own out to the white slave owners.

All these were themes explored in the movie. From where then comes the angst expressed by Spike Lee and several other notable black icons about this movie?

Well, I didn't really get that feeling while I was watching it, but other people might have different feelings entirely.

I definitely don't regret seeing it though. I honestly thought it was the best movie I saw in 2012. Better than Bond, Looper, Total Recall, Argo, Flight or the Dark Knight Rises. I haven't seen The Master, The Hobbit or Lincoln though, but even if some of those are better overall movies, I still think Django would probably still be in the top 3.
seen vampire hunter? didnt see dt in 2012? The plot is too crazy

he rarely disappoints.....one of my best movie directors ever.
is the movie disrespectful to blacks? it's not disrespectful to me - these things did happen back then, what's wrong with someone telling the story how it was?

Django is a Quentin Tarantino movie. All his movies are always violent and weird. So not surprised of its controversy.

Personally, Django was the best movie to come out in 2012, I'd never get the hype around SkyFall.

Inappropriate? I don't think so, this was never a feel good movie, it was meant to depict a dark era in African American history and I'd have been disappointed if it was "appropriate". Slavery was never appropriate to the sane mind, why would a movie portraying the story be appropriate?

Awkward? Well I saw the movie with a largely African American audience so it wasn't so much as awkward, definitely, some uncomfortable scenes. I'm guessing it'd have been different if there was a white guy next to me laughing at a "nigga" scene angry

The mask scene was hilarious, cracked me up and helped the uneasiness from the bloody scene.

Action packed movie, I like it cool

somalia9:


Well those who are weak get enslaved. My ancestors in somalia had negroid slaves from tanzania, uganda, kenya, and ethiopia. We were never enslaved.


Even 1991 when the U.N. , USA, EUROPEAN UNION, came to somalia, we fought until the THE WORLD said ' these people will keep dying as long as we are on their soil' AND THEY LEFT. LMAO



YOUR THE ONE WHO HAS BEEN FAILED BY YOUR OWN ANCESTORS. EVERY WHERE YOU NEGROIDS ARE, YOU ARE SLAVES. SOMALIS OWNED YOU, ETHIOPIANS OWNED YOU, ARABS OWNED YOU, AMERICANS OWNED YOU, EUROPEANS OWNED YOU.


NEVER SAW AN ENTIRE GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO ARE SO SUBMISSIVE AND WEAK AND YET LOOK LIKE BODY BUILDERS. THAT FUFU IS NOTHING IF YOUR JUST GONNA RAISE YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR AND BE ENLSAVED.
Haha..This is the first time I am hearing of a proud Somalian...The only thing The world knows associated with somalia is refugees...some grand delusions you have there mate.

Re: Django Unchained = Inappropriate And Awkward? by Symphony007: 3:58pm On Jan 08, 2013
Why are so guys so afraid of "race". You can't run from it nor hide it cause it existed and still does. What's wrong with the word negro? Martin lutter king always use it to describe himself and his fellow blacks. The film reminds people of the evils of the slave trade and i'm happy that grim part of history is'nt covered up. It should be there for the future to remenise on.
Re: Django Unchained = Inappropriate And Awkward? by totalbaby(f): 4:17pm On Jan 08, 2013

pleep: The movie actually said the N-word 110 times lol, i get the sense that tarantino gets a kick out of putting it in his movies. It actually was a pretty unique plot and actually a very entertaining movie but i abosoultly hate the director. All he does is make his movies as violent and controversial as possible to get ppl to watch them.. all spike lee is doing is giving him more shine.

Even the Lincoln movie said the N-word a couple times, its becoming more acceptable i guess. What makes it awkward is how all the white ppl start laughing when they hear it and all the black ppl get quiet and angry grin
Re: Django Unchained = Inappropriate And Awkward? by lagerwhenindoubt(m): 4:22pm On Jan 08, 2013

Re: Django Unchained = Inappropriate And Awkward? by lagerwhenindoubt(m): 4:23pm On Jan 08, 2013
I wonder why very few peeps complain when the N word i.e Niggurrr or Nigga or Niigoorh is used and the show keeps running .. but here is a one-time movie that probably won't have a remake and here we go again about the N word
Re: Django Unchained = Inappropriate And Awkward? by totalbaby(f): 4:29pm On Jan 08, 2013
Black ppl can be hypocrites sometimes. They use the N word in music, movies etc like some kindaa fashion but let a white person try it then it"s a problem

Re: Django Unchained = Inappropriate And Awkward? by pharuk: 4:30pm On Jan 08, 2013
No jokes,
Django is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time.
From the sound track, script and performance.

I did black African history and did loads if research in people like Malcolm X, Luther king etc.

I so much appreciate this movie becaus Tarantino brought out that the true american culture before slave trade was abolished,

If u upset by the N word, I won't recommend watching it, I believe he wants to tell the story of black slavery to younger generation who are enjoying the fruits and proudly saying America is a free country.
Re: Django Unchained = Inappropriate And Awkward? by Samxiulee: 5:34pm On Jan 08, 2013
Can we blacks get to worry about something better than being called a n.igger?its just a Latin word,meaning black!Arabs, Indians,and mongols are far more racist than white folks,so pls cut them some slacks,a with man fought for eradication of slavery,a white nation Great Britain financed and championed the crusade againt other nations involve in slave trade,a country went into civil war cause of slavery,us civil war,we need to give them some credit.
BTW most slaves were sold into slavery by their fellow blackmen,and its also a fact that,there are more black slave in the Arab world than others.
