Eight years after the Joker's reign of anarchy, Batman, with the help of the enigmatic Catwoman, is forced from his exile to save Gotham City, now on the edge of total annihilation, from the brutal guerrilla terrorist Bane.
A former assassin known as The Bride wakens from a four-year coma. The child she carried in her womb is gone. Now she must wreak vengeance on the team of assassins who betrayed her - a team she was once part of.
In 1858, a bounty hunter named Schultz seeks out a slave named Django and buys him because he needs him to find some men he is looking for. After finding them, Django wants to find his wife, Brunhilde, who along with him were sold separately by his former owner for trying to escape. Schultz offers to help him if he chooses to stay with him and be his partner. Eventually they learn that she was sold to a plantation in Mississipi. Knowing they can't just go in and say they want her, they come up with a plan so that the owner will welcome them into his home and they can find a way.Written by
When Django is learning he is allowed to dress himself as he pleases, as he tosses the hat onto the bust in frustration, it rests off-center and pointing to the floor. But when the camera cuts back, the hat is suddenly level. See more »

*sigh* AKA "The Worst Movie For Race Relations In America In The Last 30 Years"
Opening Statement: "This film is the greatest, longest, most boring, unimaginative, tasteless, self-indulgent piece of racist trash that I have ever seen in a movie theater. Do not see it for history will prove you to be a damned fool."
This is what sensible critics should have said about this movie.
In my defense: First, let me say that I have been a tremendous Tarantino fan my whole life and have seen all of his movies. Second, let me say that I will not be attending anymore of his films in a theater. Third, "Django Unchained" is not a bad movie, in the same way that "Birth of a Nation" is not a bad movie. All these things considered, this is one of my least favorite movie experiences of all time. It completely lacks substance, with the exception of ketchup and corn syrup. There are few things about this film that I actually enjoyed (Christoph Waltz being one exception.) The rest? I can say little in its defense. Instead of making a statement about America's brutal history of slavery and its atrocities, "Django Unchained" rolls around the filth under the excuse that "its a satire," "its comical," "its making a statement," "its a parody," "its campy."
(these are not acceptable excuses)
Tarantino should not get to do this. A great movie could have been achieved, but he made damn sure to cross that line. In the absence of any real moral message, social statement, or will to style, Tarantino has continued to rely upon ultra-violence to win him points with audiences and critics. If Tarantino wanted to keep me interested, I would recommend he cut the laughable redundant gimmicks that he has fallen back upon time and time again.
I am tired of seeing someone getting their junk blown off in every Tarantino movie. Its not shocking anymore, its just repetitious. And his signature scenes of extended dialogue are no longer witty, nor do they keep my mind sharp in between the ever escalating blood baths.
So please Mr. Tarantino its time to make a new movie, not just a more violent version of the one you made last time.
