‘Django Unchained’ says, um, “black person” 109 times

As expected, Quentin Tarantinos ‘Django Unchained’ is getting the same fawning reviews most of his movies get (currently 100 percent on rotten tomatoes), but it’s also getting attention because the hero is a slave just before the Civil War, and they used very colorful language back then. Variety says:

“But here, even as it lays the groundwork for “Django’s” vengeance, dwelling on such brutality can verge on exploitation. To wit, the film problematically features no fewer than 109 instances of the “N word,” most of them deployed either for laughs or alliteration.”

Yeah well what can you do. Some people are racist and they use racist words. Have Chris Brown play a concert at Sturges, the 109 times you heard “nigger” in ‘Django’ will seem almost charming by comparison.

    Just listen to any rap music. 109 times per track is the standard.

    Can’t wait for this to hit cable/online rental. Quentin’s movies are always overrated by the kind of moronic bros that write for this site and get dumber each time you watch them, so deffinitely not going to pay 10 bucks to see it.

    This movie looks laughably bad, but if you laugh then you’re racist.

    Of course the critics love it….it’s Tarentino’s film. He has never made a great, entertaining movie…just films with some outstanding segments joined together with crap. He gets amazing performances from some actors, and just shit from others, but hasn’t made a single movie that is good end to end (although Pulp Fiction was amusing throughout most of it’s silliness).

    The best thing you can say about Tarentino is that at least he’s not M. Night Shyamalan. Until he does something better (without his characteristic “look how clever I am” bullshit tossed in), I’ll stick to the guys who actually make entertaining movies for the audience, not the critics (who are all sure they are smarter than the rest of us).

    This movie is very obviously aimed to increase racial tension. It’s perfect for the self righteous liberals who can comfort themselves for having thrown a biscuit to what they consider the poor suffering black person today.
    But this movie or that time has NOTHING to do with the needs of anyone in 2013 let alone black people. The only need this movie fills is the need to nurture bitterness for a bygone era. Bygone and good riddance.. it’s over.

    More than anything I would like to say … GET OVER YOURSELVES SELF RIGHTEOUS SOCIALIST HOLLYWOOD

    thanks

    And isn’t it interesting they chose a GERMAN to be the helper and hero for Django? Germans who 70 years ago killed 13 million people based on their belief they were a superior race? Good thing there weren’t any black people in Germany at that time because they would have been cut up, starved, burned, gassed, raped and shot. Let’s keep things in perspective… Civil War was 1861 so this period movie story would have taken place prior to that time.

    P.S. Black racist is JUST as bad as white racist.
