Django Unchained Time 1858 Movie Review By Andre Austin Two prominent black figures in America, Spike Lee and Minister Louis Farrakhan, oppose the movie Django. I was believing in their criticism until I heard a radio interview of Dick Gregory on Youtube. My Aunt gave me a bootleg copy on DVD and I the movie came, I saw and I was deeply impressed. Basically the movie was in the spirit of many of those 1970’s black action flicks where blacks got revenge on whity for the injustice afflicted upon a people of color. The movie also has it funny, comedic moments when a white bounty hunter teams up with a former black slave to outwit the slave traders, fight promoters and outlaw white folks who suppress the black man and sexually exploit the black female. Just like Jews who constantly remind the world of their holocaust in Hollywood, blacks have the right to tell their stories of their inhumane treatment in any format we pick. That applies to white and black directors. Samuel Jackson plays the role of HNIC for his master Leonardo. Some people incorrectly assume Jackson plays the role of Uncle Tom from the book Uncle Tom Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe. He plays the role more like Sambo & Quimbo who kills Tom. Uncle Tom was a Christ like figure who refused to snitch on black slaves who ran away from beatings and wanted to unite with their families. Jackson in the movie made Jamie Fox (Django) pays 12 thousand dollars to buy back his wife. In the end Jackson cries out to Jesus to save him from dying in the big house from a fire to no avail. Jackson almost upstaged the movie from Jamie until he got baptized with the fire. My only criticism of the movie is the lack of love scenes between Kerry Washington and Jamie Foxx. The movie ends with the two riding off in the night on horses. I would of like the ending with the two buying a house, Jamie having a job and raising a new born baby. That would have been a better happy ever after ending. For those that oppose the show please drop the haterade and all that unnecessary bellyaching. Listen to no one and go and be the judge for yourself.
