Django Unchained: ShockYa Movie Review

ShockYa: The history textbooks have it wrong—not too wrong, but still. Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” depicting the brutality inflicted on slaves by Simon Legree, did not start the Civil War despite the belief by our sixteenth president that it did. The book helped. The election of Lincoln did not start the Civil War. It helped even more, but it didn’t start the war. Django started it. But don’t take my word for it. Take a look on Christmas Day and beyond at Quentin Tarantino’s movie “Django Unchanged” for the true story. You see, Django was a slave who was freed by a white man, setting up an alliance with him. Each had something to gain from the entente which began with a vague lack of trust but became cemented in true friendship. Their epic battles leading to an explosive body count. And that’s what infuriated the South. (Cinema, Django Unchained) A/A+
