Django Unchained

Django Unchained takes place in 1858 where former dentist, Dr. King Schultz now a bounty hunter, buys Django’s freedom because he is a slave and he can help Dr. Schultz identify some men that he is searching for to fulfill a bounty. He trains Django to be his deputy and later purposes a deal that if he helps him with his bounties through the winter then Dr. Schultz will give a portion of his earnings and take him to find his wife and buy her freedom which Django accepts. This film has many strengths and the history is accurate for the time period. The way slaves are treated and the way people associate with each other is very accurately depicted throughout the film.
From the beginning to the end of the film you see slaves. In the opening scene slaves are in shackles being pulled behind horses that their owners are riding on. The film is accurate on the fact that slaves were sometimes transported from place to place this way. As well as their owners yelling at them for no reason and continuing to down them and call them niggers just because they are black. They never did anything to them, they were just slaves because they were a different skin color. This continues all the way to the end of the film when slaves are again being transported, but in a truck.
The way white people are portrayed throughout the film is also accurate for the time period. They think they are better than everyone else and that they have power over blacks. It is true that white people owned plantations and that they had slaves that would tend to the cotton as well as the house on the plantation. There were field slaves for the work outside the house and house slaves that took care of the things that needed to be done around the house. Slaves would cook, clean, and tend to whatever their owner told them to. In the film Dr. Schultz and Django have to go to “Candieland” to…...

...Django Unchained The movie Django Unchained is a good movie that is set back in 1858. It involves a slave by the name of Django that was sold away from his wife. I think this movie gives a clear picture of how people and times where back in the 1800’s and displays a very good message. The movie is very good by the standards that it shows very clear of how slaves were sold and treated, also the ways people acted back in time. This movie captioned how slaves often were treated less than any other human and called nigger frequently. In these times slaves were often treated differently depending on their owner and in Django’s case the bounty hunter that came along treated him like a human being equal to himself and trained him in his profession in order to get his job done. The film clearly prefers a more definitive, spectacular, comprehensive, and ultimately simplistic portrait of revolution-via-revenge. Even though this movie has been labeled a spaghetti western the morality overrides the fiction shown in the movie. Even though a lot of the events are not exactly chronologically correct Quinton Tarantino brought true insight to the demoralization to the African American culture. Through out history there have been many slaves of different races but not here in America. This is history that we can not change and even though this movie may come across very offensive to some, if you are able to push past the degrading name calling, the abuse and violence it does a great job of...

Gypsy Music

...23rd, 1910, Jean “Django” Reinhardt was born in Liberchies, Pont-a-Celles, Belgium. He spent most of his early years in gypsy camps outside of Paris, and had a particular interest in music from an early age. When he was 12, he was given a banjo-guitar as a gift. He watched and studied other musicians closely and by the age of 13 was able to make a living through playing music. This rendered education less important in his life and as a result he received very little of it. When he was 18 years old, Reinhardt was injured in a fire. His wife Florine made fake paper flowers to supplement their income, and their caravan was littered with them. When Django was returning home late one night from a performance, he knocked over a candle, setting all the paper flowers and the caravan ablaze. He came out alive, but was left with second-degree burns on half of his body, and a paralyzed right leg. His third and fourth fingers on his left hand (his fingering hand) were badly burned, and doctors believed that he would never again be able to play the guitar. However, Django would not take this for an answer, and his brother Joseph bought him a new guitar. With extensive practice and rehabilitation, Django was able to relearn the guitar and develop/utilize techniques and fingerings that were within his physical limitations. This event was arguably the most formative for Reinhardt, forcing him to develop a whole new style due to his handicap. Around 1930, Django became very......

Rotten Tomatoes

...supposedly based on slavery; “Django Unchained” written by Quentin Tarantino, released on December 25, 2012, I was disappointed. The movie Django Unchained mocked slavery and tried to make a serious matter funny. Slavery was nothing closed to a joke, if any slave was asked to describe slavery, the last thing it would be described as is a joke. The movie takes place two years before the Civil War. Actor, Jamie Foxx played the main character, Django, in the movie. Django becomes a bounty hunter in the movie after he is recused by a German dentist/bounty hunter man named Schultz at the beginning of the movie. Django agrees to take the job offered as a bounty hunter because he can think of no better job than to kill white men for money. In the movie he says, “Kill white folks and they pay you for it? What’s not to like?” Shultz, played by Christoph Waltz, offers Django his freedom along with seventy five dollars in exchange to help him track down the Brittle brothers (previous slave owners of Django). After hunting down the Brittle brothers and Django is given his freedom, Django decides to become partners with the German and continue his job as a bounty hunter. Django agrees to keep bounty hunting only if Shultz agrees to help him rescue his wife, played by Kerry Washington from slavery. After research and hard work Django finally receives confirmation that his wife was transported to a well-known plantation called Candyland in Mississippi. Schultz and Django come up with a......

Four Techniques of Quentin Tarantino

...The Four Key Elements on Tarantino Films Quentin Tarantino has revolutionized the film industry. From his first directorial debut of Reservoir Dogs (1991) to his latest film Django Unchained (2012) he has presented the audience with unique techniques to intrigue and capture their desires for more. I regard Tarantino as the William Shakespeare of our time, because of the development and passion for his imagination and ambiguous style. Jim Smith wrote of Quentin Tarantino, as well as his films, so to have a better understanding as to whom Tarantino is as a person and director/writer. Smith titled his book “Tarantino”. The book states Tarantino has four key techniques in which most of the films are based on. These techniques are: the usage of the dramatic dialogue in the film; the very long, slow scenes exploiting, explaining, and foreshadowing the characters; the sudden dramatic reversal of tones; and the anti-chronological structure that transcends the audience’s limit of thought. Film directors edit their work to maintain only significant scenes to be revealed, thus most dialogues are cut in order to achieve such goals. Tarantino does otherwise. Dialogue is one key element in his films. Through dialogue, Tarantino manages to convey certain elements that are crucial to the existence of each character. For almost the first ten minutes in Reservoir Dogs, the development of each character is raised through the use of Dialogue. The characters discuss many comical issues which...

Battle in Seattle Thoughts and Response natural to prepare for the unexpected in any big event, and I believe that is what the police were doing, however, by preparing so much for the worst they didn’t have an open mind to what was really happening. They were trained to see violence, and the bad, expecting it, and not embracing the fact that the protesters weren’t violent. The other problem I had with the movie involved how the activists were portrayed. It made it seem as if these people were essentially nomads who just traveled around the world fighting these corporations and doing nothing else. I am all for protesting and standing for what you support but Battle in Seattle portrayed the protesters as protesting just because everyone else is doing it and to pick a side. Django, one of the characters seemed more focused on the WTO’s ruling against endangered species while Jay, seemed more focused on the revenge on the WTO’s for his brother’s death. Overall although I didn’t quite agree with the way they portrayed the WTO I quite liked the movie (Channing Tatum and all) and I liked how through the movie the producers could make the people watching have such strong emotions towards the movie and the WTO....

...hero and the official hero were born. In the film Django Unchained by Quentin Tarantino (2012), issues of slavery, race, and the differences of power between social classes were the main topics of the motion picture. The setting of the film occurs during the year 1858, a time in where western issues were quickly evolving. Django takes on the role of the protagonist who goes against the social norms of what is expected from a negro man. He joins a german bounty hunter named Dr. King Schultz who takes Django under his wing and joins him in efforts of securing the whereabouts of Django's wife, Broomhilda. His biggest obstacle is going against a house slave named Stephen. Stephen consistently tries to get in the the way of Django’s main objective of retrieving his wife, whom was sold as property to Stephen’s owner Calvin Candie. Throughout the film, issues witnessed are battles of what is right and wrong but also who is the last man standing. Although there is a declining interest in films that focus and are stylized with Western themes, there is still plenty to learn from films such as these; that though the prior events occurred in the past their ideals are still alive and well in today's culture. Such as Django’s nature to take on aspects of an outlaw hero, and the conflicting ethics of Calvin. But at the core of it all stands the most prominent of both, which were the divisions of power that occurred due to wealth and race. Django conducts himself as an outlaw hero due to......

...History Unchained Faith Wright HIST111 Match 23, 2015 Slavery was brought to North America in 1619 to aid in the production of tobacco in Jamestown, VA. The invention of the cotton gin in 1793 centralized the importance of slavery. By the 19th century, slavery spread westward which then resulted in the American Civil War. Between 1774 and 1804 all of the northern states outlawed slavery. Congress outlawed slavery completely in 1808, but then the slave trade began to flourish in the south. By the time of 1860 slavery had reached four million people, with half residing in the south. There have been movies that have told the lives of slavery in America such as Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" and Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln". Both directors depict the life of slavery in the 18th century by telling it through the eyes of a freed slave and our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln. The quality of those films raises questions on if a certain type of person has to be qualified enough to talk about slavery. The eyebrows of American people were reaised when the Disney Corporation sought to build a park based off of the slavery experience and call it "Disney America." The park would have been used to exhibit the lives and struggles of African Americans throughout slavery. However, one writer, William Styron, felt that unlike the holocaust, slavery could never be re-enacted through a museum. The repercussions of slavery were far to great to show in an exhibit. Styron......
