Default Re: Django Unchained: Big Dissapointment.

I didn't enjoy it at all.

Mixing spaghetti westerns with slavery was a bit of a stretch. And adding Rick Ross and 'Pac to a movie set in the 1800's was a questionable move.

If it was in an "alternate reality" then why reference real books like the 3 Musketeers?

To me it seemed like he wanted to give black people a hero but the situation was all jacked up. No one survives oppression like that on their own. How foxx's character learned how to shoot a gun and kill 30 or so armed men who've been shooting since they were young amazes me At least let him get grazed or wounded to make it SOMEWHAT realistic.

And there were a few scenes that were downright painful to watch....

I loved Pulp, Kill Bill, even Dawn of the Dead (for what it's worth), I just couldn't help not liking this one even though i had positive feelings going in.

He just didn't pull it off.
