“Under tremendous public pressure and the crippling financial burden of mounting lawsuits, the goverment quietly initiated the Superhero Relocation Program. Superheroes were granted amnesty from past actions under the promise to never again resume hero work. Where are they now? They are living among us. Average people, average citizens quietly and anonymously making the world a better place.”

Jesus Christ that movie put me through a lot of emotions. Seriously. Ughh. Anyway to start off this review, let me say, Django Unchained is one of the best movies of the year. It’s similar, structurally to Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, and while it doesn’t reach the peak of it, Django Unchained is still a great movie. I adored the whole cast – Jaime Foxx turned Django into one of the most bad ass superheroes I’ve ever seen, Christoph Waltz instantly made it to my list of favorite actors (SPOILER ALERT: when he died, I swear to god I was soo sad. I’m slowly falling in love with this man), Kerry Washington was amazing despite having a smaller role, Samuel L. Jackson and Leonardo DiCaprio gave one of their best performances ever, and both in my mind deserved Oscar nominations for Best Supporting Actor, over Waltz (I love Waltz, but DiCaprio and Jackson just gave superior performances). Despite this, I have to mention the film tends to run too long and dragged on at certain points and could have used a better editor to bring it down to a size that would make it worthy of an A. It seems like Tarantino thought it was like Basterds and was worthy enough of a two-and-a-half-hour length – well he was wrong, personally if it was cut down, at the most, 30 minutes, I would have absolutely loved it and called it perfect. Nonetheless  this film was amazing and one of the best from 2012 - Tarantino has written an amazing screenplay (if it wasn’t for Moonrise Kingdom, I would say it deserves the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay) and has continued a trend of maturation through his work. It’ll be sad to see him retire in the next few years.

“You know, I sometimes think, how is anyone ever gonna come up with a book, or a painting, or a symphony, or a sculpture that can compete with a great city. You can’t. Because you look around and every street, every boulevard, is its own special art form and when you think that in the cold, violent, meaningless universe that Paris exists, these lights, I mean come on, there’s nothing happening on Jupiter or Neptune, but from way out in space you can see these lights, the cafés, people drinking and singing. For all we know, Paris is the hottest spot in the universe.”

“Really quick! Speaking of Consuelo, Lillian and I took Spanish together in school. And so, I would just like to say to you and to everyone here, "Gracias para vivar en la casa, en la escuelas, en… en la azul… "markada”. Tienes con “bibir” en las Fortuashla?“ and gracias!”
