Django Unchained Movie Review

Hubby and I don't always spend our weekends renovating, sometimes we just want a break to relax and unwind a little. Saturday was such a day. After getting through the mountain of dishes in the kitchen, we decided to head to the movies and see Django Unchained at the Palace Barracks. 

For those of you who haven't heard of the movie, Django Unchained is about a slave who is purchased by a German bounty hunter, to help the bounty hunter in his quest to find three wanted men. The story then evolves into the bounty hunter partnering with Django and promising him to help him search for his lost wife, Broomhilda. Like all good Quentin Tarantino films, you should expect a lot of bloodshed (which clearly I had forgotten about going in) and perhaps more graphical content than you need to see at times. It is definitely an action movie, even bub was trying to get in on it from time to time and giving me a good kick.

The movie is set two years before the civil war, so you can expect to find a lot of racism and racist slurs in this movie. It will perhaps open your eyes to a different time.

It is a longer movie than expected with a run time of 2 1/2 hours but still well worth the watch in my mind. The only negative I found was Quentin Tarantino's cameo appearance, where he tries to take off an Australian accent and it goes terrribly wrong and turns into a South African accent.
