Newtown, Connecticut Sandy Hook Elementary School Tragedy

President Barack Obama Our hearts are broken. The majority of those who died today were children, beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old. They had their entire lives ahead of them: birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own. Among the fallen were also teachers, men and women who devoted their lives to helping our children fulfill their dreams.

Django Unchained

New Film By Director and Writer Quentin Tarantino

Django Unchained is slated to be Christmas top movie by director/Writer Quentin Tarantino and produced by Reginald Hudlin whose artistic work is well worth the view. In 2012 I am over the word slave and I can speak because I have living relatives that picked cotton. Not that I am not aware of the struggle but I am aware of how to be free. Their stories intrigue me and can bring tears but overall when I see how well they are doing today, I can just bust out with one of those Jesus hymns.  Alright, back to the film.  Django Unchained is filled with trained actors such as  Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christopher Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson and Kerry Washington my fellow Bronxite.

The film is stated to be inspired by the 1966  “Django” by  Italian filmmaker Sergio Leone.  However, I believe the storyline is similar to a 1974 classic featuring Vonette McGee & Max Julien, Thomasine & Bushrod by director Gordon Parks Jr.,  written by Max Julien and a great role by Glynn Turman.  Although, Thomasine and Bushrod was set to be a fictional black “Bonnie and Clyde” the shooting lawmen scenes trying to get out of poverty, has the same tone as shooting slave owners.  I have even heard some compare the film to Blazing Sadles, no matter what anyone says Quentin Tarantino signature and style of film making will have seats filled.  Jamie Fox  who stars as Django, is a slave living in the Deep South (not sure where the deep south is) after being separated from his wife Broomhilda played by Kerry Washington, who is enslaved by Leonardo DiCaprio the charming Calvin Candie. Mr. Candie has a plantation where male slaves are trained to fight for sport and female slaves are forced into prostitution. The Spaghetti Western hit “Django” was produced by Italian filmmaker Sergio Leone, film note Mr. Leone featured then a fresh young actor Clint Eastwood in three of his films.
