As is always the case for a Tarantino movie it starts off interesting and then the blood shed starts. It’s underlying theme is a story of bonds, both those of love and those of brotherhood and respect.
But the amount of blood and general opening of a can of whoop ass is spectacular. There’s the next to last scene before Django blows up the Candieland mansion. The part where he’s on the stairs with the two black women and says to them “Tell Miss Laura Goodbye” And the women look at him puzzled and he repeats himself and they say “Goodbye Miss Laura”. And then DJango blows a bitch away. Too funny.
And the funny part is, at the beginning where Dr. Shultz and Django meet Mr. Candie I said “They’re all gonna die. Every last one of them.” I was so right.

Ok before I launch just go out and see the latest movie “Lincoln”
Outstanding performances by Daniel Day Lewis as President Lincoln, Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln and even Tommy Lee Jones as Rep. Thaddeus Stevens.
Movie spoiler – it picks up in 1865, the forth year of the U.S. Civil War. By this point in time the north is taking the lead and a peace is eminent and reconstruction can begin.
It focuses on the life, as gleaned through historical record, of the decision to push the 13th Amendment and to negotiate a peace with the Confederacy.
The political push-pull is extremely interesting. Not only that back in the mid 19th century the Republicans were actually the progressive party. Imagine that. Now of course it’s the complete opposite.
The focus on one Representative, Thaddeus Stevens a supporter of ending slavery for the past 30 years of his career in the House, we find out WHY he supported it near the very end of the movie.
One other thing, the political environment back then was almost a contact sport. I love it!
We thought we’d catch the 7:05PM show on Friday evening. By the time we arrived it had been sold out. There was a 9:45PM and 10:15PM showing but even the 9:45PM was sold out. So we got in on the 10:15PM showing. It’s a fairly long movie, some 150 minutes (2 and a half hours) but well worth watching.
And it I’ve heard folks say the timing of this was delayed to counter the fact that the Republicans were actually the good guys back in the mid to later 19th century. But I think it’s perfect timing what with the threats to secede by the likes of Texas and a handful of other states. Even here in RI we got 4,550 signatures to secede and I bet I know where they all came from, the towns of East Greenwich and part of North Kingstown. They think their shit doesn’t stink.

So a friend turned me on to a new movie site, it’s ssupload. Ignore the soft core porn ads and just browse the movie categories. Some will require certain common plugins.
Anyhow I’ve watched:
Blow – very interesting story.
Live Free or Die Hard – Good expansion of the Die Hard serial.
Breaking and Entering – Interesting little story
300 – Wow, the allegory is pretty powerful there.
