Spike Lee Called For A Boycott of Django So Naturally I Went and Saw It Right Away

Published:

Tarantino can make good movies.

This one could have been a lot better if he wasn't so damm pre-occupied with his self-loathing guilt-trip about having the same color skin as the slave owners did.

But who knows, maybe his family was one of the big Democrat Plantation Owners that actually owned slaves and it has some kind of effect on him that I can't identify with because my family never owned slaves or had anything to do with slaves or the slave trade. I just can't feel any responsibility or guilt for something me and my family never had anything to do with. But maybe he does.

Anyway... If he had left all of his own personal reparations in the form of trying to make whites look as stupid and devious and evil as possible out of the movie, I think it could have been much better. He just went overboard with some of it. Beyond reason.

And a lot of the shootouts bordered on cartoonish with gallons of blood splattering all over the place with every shot.

There was a lot of action and interesting, well-played characters. I just wish he could have left his guilt and self-loathing out of it.

And all the cartoony stuff.

I wonder if he'll do a movie on the Buffalo soldiers ? freed slaves who joined the Army so they could go kill Indians.
