Django Unchained

  • Awards: 2 Academy Awards & 2 Golden Globe Awards

Okay, we’re done discussing Tarantino movies now. Django Unchained might be his best work. He decided to mix his style into the Spaghetti Western genre and give a revisionist tribute to the era. Specifically when it comes to the 1966 Italian film, Django. Jamie Foxx plays Django, a black slave who is bought by a German bounty hunter. The German makes Django his partner and trains him to be a bounty hunter all with the ultimate goal of reuniting him with his long-lost wife. The script and acting in this film is off the charts amazing.

He manages to go to the University of Alabama where he’s coached by Bear Bryant. He joins the Vietnam War where he is honored for his heroics. Gump then goes on to get involved in the shrimp field to create the Bubba Gump Shrimp Corporation where he becomes quite wealthy. All while the love of his life, Jenny, is in and out of his life for decades. While Gump might not be the smartest man, he’s certainly one of the luckiest.
