The cartoon that Quentin selected to be shown before Django Unchained at the New Beverly Cinema in L.A.
The AICN review of Django Unchained.
One celeb you don’t have to worry about running into at a Django Unchained screening this year – Spike Lee is boycotting the film.
You see, Spike has decided that Quentin is too white to make movies that use the N-word (he long ago came to this conclusion). And with Django, Spike has decided that making a movie with slavery as the backdrop that doesn’t have its primary focus to convey the full horror of slavery is somehow unacceptable.
Lots of self-beclowning statements from Spike at the link.
It was bound to happen.
Rex Reed reviews Django Unchained.
Grantland has a big review of Django Unchained.
This is a really bad idea. All it does is embolden those folks among us that would censor our movies, music and television shows based on the misguided opinion that if only we never saw fictional violence depicted, there would be less real violence in the world.
The Weinstein Company is the latest to curtail the festivities on a holiday season film because of the Connecticut massacre. An LA premiere had been scheduled tomorrow night for the Quentin Tarantino-directed Django Unchained. The film will still be shown, but there will be no red carpet and invited press is being asked to attend a different screening.
Its a predictable and repeating story over the last two decades. When horrible killings happen, Tarantino’s name gets stuck into the news articles. Now that we’ve had an episode with another violent Tarantino ready to released, the blame game is in full effect.
