Django Unchained.

When it comes to movies that are based on history, nobody can bend the hell out of history itself like Q. Tarantino.  After “Inglorious Bastards” (Where the Americans kill Hitler in the end), I knew that if he ever did another history based film, it’d be more about the action than historical correctness.  A few days ago my good friend told me about Will Smith playing his movies safe, and passing on the movie Django Unchained.  I had never heard of the movie before, but when I found out that it was Quentin Tarantino’s take on an action movie based around slavery, I KNEW I had to check that out.

Former dentist, Dr. King Schultz, buys the freedom of a slave, Django, and trains him with the intent to make him his deputy bounty hunter. Instead, he is led to the site of Django’s wife who is under the hands of Calvin Candie, a ruthless plantation owner.

Eddy Murphy on Racism.

My sister Christine has always been a fan of Eddy Murphy, and my generation/age group was introduced to him in movies like ”Dr. Dolittle” and other cute family friendly movies.  But soon after I grew up, I realized that most famous comedians, (Eddy Murphy, Bob Saggat, Robin Williams, and the like) were much more ”Raw” than they seemed later in their careers.  So seeing individuals like Eddy Murphy on stage, in the production titled ”Delirious”, was at first a shock, but now that I’ve been grown for quite some time, looking back on it is just as funny as the first time.  Check the method below, and enjoy Eddy’s thoughts about racism, slavery, and everything that comes with it.
