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.

A Rap Freestyle Battle Translated.

I’ve been involved in some pretty ridiculous conversations in the past, but one of the best in recent memory was trying to explain to someone what the point of freestyle battling was.  My friends and I tried to explain to a colleague that the art of matching wits with a competitor intellectually was something that other cultures have done for years.  The killer was that we found a skit on Funny or Die of what a Rap Battle might sound like if were translated for the general public.  Regardless of the tags on the video, the original battle is between Dose and Math Hoffa from S.M.A.C.K. DVD.  But the translated version is hilarious none the less.
