The “D” is silent!!
So i decided to go see it. Mainly because it is yet another Tarantino masterpiece, but also because of all the backlash from my fellow Negros. With that being said let me address the elephant in the room first……..
To my black brothers and sisters,
SHUT THE FUCK UP about the damn “N-WORD”………
(Oh wait im black so i can say it )…..NIGGER, NIGGA, or any other rendition of the word you want to use let it go.
(see what i did there…)
We don’t own the word “NIGGER” nor do we own the 21st century version “NIGGA”. So if they can’t say it then we don’t need to say it either. So i have a new word for you, well its not really new im sure you’ve heard it before but:
hypocrisy |hiˈpäkrisē|noun ( pl. hypocrisies ) the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one’s own behavior does not conform; pretense.
Don’t think i need to say more, definition speaks for itself.
To my white brothers and sisters that had the problem with the concept of a black man running around killing white people and all that jazz you’ve gotten yourselves worked up on, allow me to remind you that THIS IS AMERICAN HISTORY! Yeah that part you don’t like us to talk about. And if a fictional character running around killing white people is the biggest issue you saw in this film then you have bigger problems than you can even begin to deal with. So take the new word i left you above put it in your mouth chew it up and swallow it. My ancestors didn’t like dying in real life anymore then you like seeing fictional character representations of your ancestors being killed for pretend-time. Deal with it, we have.
Now with that out of the way…………….
All in all the movie was awesome. Jamie Foxx did very well, but it was not his best performance by way of character. Kerri Washington, again not really anything spectacular but i feel she like Jamie did well as always. I guess i would like to see them come out of their comfort zone of acting and play characters that are so unexpected of them. Put them in roles we would never imagine them playing, allow them to blow our minds, and then overlook them for awards they deserve in order to honor another actor or actress with a bigger name that played a mediocre role in a mediocre film by anyone but Quentin Tarantino! Is that too much to ask for?!?! Sheeess!
Dicaprio, as always, nailed it! Loved him in this role. So natural and makes it look effortless. Samuel L. Mutha-Fu**in Jackson! I think this is the first time i’ve ever hated him. That means he played his role to the bone. Usually with an actor like Jackson i look clean through the character they play and see just the actor and completely miss their character, thus ruining the movie for myself. In this role it was quite difficult to look pass character to see him and i enjoyed his contribution.
Now Christoph Waltz, Amazing. In Inglorious Bastards, i feared him. If i saw him on the street i would feel the need to run an hide from this man, feeling hunted. In character this man could sell me an alternate ending to the creation of earth. In Django, he steals me again. I can’t wait to see him in his next role.
One interesting thing i did pick up on was that in the movie it seem that they were saying “NIGGA” more than “NIGGER” and if so touché to you Mr. Tarantino.
