was great. Loved it. Loved it.
Yeah like bugs bunny and daffy duck bloody gore. (gesh...)
There's violence and then there's violence.
But this was not your typical every day six 0-clock news violence. Duh...
This was cartoonish-like black comedy violence.
How can people have missed the satire?
Tarantino is making a point whenever he shows "his" type of violence.
Shooting kids in school with NRA approved assault weapons, thats violence.
This Tarantino brand of violence? That is Tarantino-brand satire violence.
Same thing with pulp fiction.
And what is up with all the hissy fitting about the "N" word used in the movie???
Come-on Spike. We know you are not THAT lame.
I found this movie to be the most exposing and realistic characterization of how slavery really was, back in that time of the good ole 1800's.
You have to realize that slaves WERE property. Period. Nothing more, nothing less.
Well, maybe a lot less in the end...
Like an old car, or old horse, or old piece of machinery... once it has fulfilled its usefulness, once it no longer performs as expected, it becomes totally dispensable.
Just like the DiCaprio plantation slaves in the film.
Extremely telling of that era, and the life of every day slavery on the old plantation.
Quentin Tarantino got this down pat.
Never before have I seen the life of slavery so profoundly illustrated.
And shown how completely disposable slaves were.
How they were nothing more than wealth and physical property to the owner.
Again, Tarantino was playing it up, but in a way most people probably missed.
This was 1800 slavery. Not the blacks in the field picking cotton all day and answering yess sir, naw sir.
But instead, the slave having nothing more in value than the value of the boots worn on that owners feet.
Once either should wear out, disposable.
Tarantino "is" amazing.
We really have no idea in todays world. We think of that era as Lincoln and black vs white, free vs slave.
Slavery was so much more than cotton picking.
To the owner the slave was basic wealth. Beyond that, nothing.
Basic wealth and status, but only as long as "it" held some hint of value.
Like ones boots or ones wagon or ones horse and donkey.
Useful property of limited value. Property that eventually depreciated into worthless.
Im a bit surprised people missed just how, with this Tarantino film, his intensions implanting the idea of how deeply the very suggestion to putting an end to slave-ownership lifestyle, to ending that era, could have cause so much hate and anger to rise up that it would literally tear a country apart causing brother to kill brother.
And not to mention the president responsible would be so profoundly hated that death from assassination must have been guaranteed.
Quentin Tarantino knew. Tarantino knew just exactly what he was saying with this movie.
In his own indisputable Quentin Tarantino way, naturally.
Adding in some entertainment value to keep our attention.
Awwww... Quentin Tarantino.
Only he could tell this so well, as he does, if you pay close attention. And only if...
And Spike Lee must be totally living on the moon to be so offend by the "N" word while missing the whole point.
A point mildly disguised using satire and black comedy.
Yeah, you might say I loved this film.
Only a genius as Quentin Tarantino could pull this off.
Ps. Best movie line? "I like the way you die".
