OK, I give up. What is Django Unchained ?
Just Googled “django unchained spoiler”, so forget I asked. Nothing to see here; I’ll move along.
I’d rather have the MG42.
I’m not trying to plug the movie. Only reason I posted is the irony of these being pulled in light of Jamie Foxx’s remarks about his role in the movie on SNL.
