Tarantino unchains bloody 'Django' at Comic-Con
associated press ^ | 7/14/12

Posted on 07/15/2012 6:27:39 PM PDT by BBell

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Quentin Tarantino is redefining race relations in the pre-Civil War South with "Django Unchained," his Western-style saga that he previewed at the Comic-Con fan convention.

Tarantino said Saturday that he has been wanting to do a Western for ages and that the idea for "Django Unchained" first came to him 13 years ago.

I know I'm being paranoid but doe's anyone remember reading the book "Red Storm Rising" and how the USSR was broadcasting old anti-Germanic movies before the the plot to start WWIII was implemented?

I really don't see why this anti-white and anti-Southern crap is being tossed out to the ignorant easily manipulated masses at this time. The movies release date is not until December BTW.

What's next, an anti Yankee film about how bad we treated the Mexicans before the Mexican-American war.

I see similar hints that groundwork is being laid. I think the folks at the top are getting ready for the big show.

But I've been wrong before.

Looks awesome. I can't wait to see it.

Kill Bill 1 and 2 were narcissistic junk, but I loved Inglorious Basterds.

It’s Tarantino. Excessive violence with no script and no plot beyond excessive violence. The only thing recommending it is the high body count. And did I mention excessive violence?

I think so.

But what about the high body count?

So, Tarantino finally watched the old Django series of Spaghetti Westerns and decided to make his own Django movie.

I live in the South and both my kids attend Schools which are heavily black. Most of the black kids are just fine but I’m surprised by some of the things my kids tell me that they hear from a some of these black kids. You would think that slavery just ended.

Quentin Tarantino magic ping. Creative genious mixed with absurd humor and absurd violence at its best ever. I’m looking forward to this one.
However, the theme and timing considering Obozo and Holder, well, Charlie just might be smiling about Helter Skelter again, and I’m sure some gangbanger punks will be inspired to be murderous punks by this movie.

I’ve not heard of the original Django series. I will have to look them up as I am a big fan of Spaghetti Westerns. Very little dialog but lots of facial and body language closeups.

Also, I think that you should give some “Borscht Westerns” a shot. White Sun of the Desert has elements that you would recognize from a Spaghetti Western,

Yeah you’re being paranoid. It’s a Tarantino movie, not that many people watch, he’s got a big rep but really his numbers aren’t that big. Looks like a fun fine movie though.

Nothing finally about it, he likes to let movies rattle around in his head for a long time. And really if you pay attention Inglorious Basterds is actually a spaghetti western, just happens to be in WWII, but all the styles and structures and music are there.

I’ve not seen Kill Bill but Pulp Fiction ,Jackie Brown and Reservoir Dogs were pretty good. Inglourious Basterds was o.k.

And then there was "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter" with its Confederate vampires.

I suffer bouts of paranoia now and again. It’s usually when I’m drinking too much and thinking too much. Not a good combination.

I actually read "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter". It was not bad. I made a deal with my daughter that if she read "Killing Lincoln" I would read "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter". She did not keep up her end of the bargain.

I did not see the movie but she did and from what she said of the movie it deviates way to much from the book.

I suspect that this started as something of a remake of Hang ‘em High, starring Clint Eastwood, that itself was (loosely) based on the story of former slave Bass Reeves, who became Deputy to “Hanging Judge” Issac Parker in the Oklahoma Indian Territories.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bass_Reeves

Bass Reeves (1838–1910) was one of the first African Americans (possibly the first) to receive a commission as a Deputy U.S. Marshal west of the Mississippi River.

Hollywood has been wanting to make a movie about Reeves for many years, but it is somewhat problematic as Reeves was a good lawman, and though very skilled with a gun, wanted to arrest, not shoot, those men he had been given a warrant to arrest. As such it lends itself less to drama.

The Django movies, however, are pure fluff.

It is interesting to watch the film knowing that at one point in his career, the director pissed-off Party apparatchiks. I always chuckle when Sukhov says, "Comrade Girls" when addressing the hareem.

I would like to see many more Western made every year. But I get tired of racial concepts. I know racism is terrible, but I want entertainment, not someone beating me over the head with racism.

Yes, it is what I call “violence porn”. Why do people want to wallow in such gore? I think of the Bible verse that says put nothing unworthy before your eyes. It is all part of our culture of death.

The amazing thing about Tarantino movies (maybe Kill Bill aside) is how LITTLE violence there is. The dialog alone inspires a sense of extreme violence, but there isn’t much quantified. Reservoir Dogs registers as one of the most violent movies out there, yet there is little more in it than some hysterical gangsters standing in a warehouse yelling at each other.

I was hoping it would be a part “Desperado”, part “Inglourious Basterds” remake with Django Reinhardt as the protagonist. I can see it now, Django shooting Nazis from his guitar case.

Well, some books of the Bible have a lot of violence...but there is a plot.

When Ulfilas translated the Bible into Gothic in the 4th century, he left out a few of the books that have a lot of warfare in them, figuring that the Goths didn't need the encouragement. ("Amalekites?" "Kill 'em all!")

What Tarantino does is he takes a scene and gradually builds up the tension, you know inevitably something bad is going to happen, but it gets revealed slowly.

Two examples, in “Pulp Fiction” where Jules arrives in the apartment and gives his “and you shall know I am the Lord....” speech. He begins by questioning them about their breakfast, and gradually reveals the real reason he’s there.

The other was the opening of Inglourious Basterds, where Landa visits the French farmer.

Yes, but it is not gratuitous, explicitly portrayed violence in every grisly detail. Gibson’s movie about Christ went way beyond what the Bible did in depicting Christ’s suffering and death. We don’t have to see every gruesome moment to know how horrible something like that is.

I never thought that Henry Fonda could have played such a cold hearted killer as he did in Once Upon a Time in The West. The whole cast from the beginning to the end was outstanding. I do love spaghetti westerns.

The body count in RD was 11 so some of that hysterical screaming was done at 800+ feet per second.

I don’t know about that. Do we actually know that Mr. White kills Mr. Orange? It also doesn’t list “Nice Guy” Eddie killing the cop that Mr. Blonde was torturing.

No, but given that it's Tarantino there will be some great music from the 60's and 70's.

I'm predicting "Western Union" by the Five Americans as the slaveholder playfully coils and uncoils his whip just before lashing the slave/hero in a overly violent scene.

Well, either "Western Union" or "Which Way You Going, Billy?"
