Django Unchained - Review by Stoner Cricket

This is Stoner Cricket Review, where we review movies for Stoners, Ents, and the like. In today's installment I review “Django Unchained.”

Django Unchained is a Quentin Tarantino revenge movie staring Jamie Foxx. Django is a freed slave turned bounty hunter with Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz). After spending time learning the trade with Dr. Schultz, Django then decides to rescue his still enslaved wife, who is owned by one of the largest slave owners in the state.

This is a blog where we review movies on the big screen to let you know if it’s worth the use of your cookie, brownie, or tokes off your pipe, etc. We use the Reddit Ent Scale to represent how stoned we were during the viewing. On a scale from [1 to 10] during the viewing of Django Unchained, I would say I was about a [3].

Like I had said before my preferred method is to eat a brownie, cookie or some other kind of edible. I eat before the show, before even getting there, and by the time the show is starting it should be taking effect.

We came up with a rating system of up to 7 thumps up for how much the movie is worth seeing baked. Is it worth the use of your trees? We don’t want your trees going to waste. The 7 thumbs up is determined by 3 categories: Effects, Plot, and Sound.

I give a thumb up for Sound. I enjoyed all the music in the movie. If there is one thing Quentin Tarantino does well, it's integrating music and songs into his films. The Special Effects for the movie were good. The makeup given to some actors to make them look aged was very good, with the only exception being the scar on Django's face, which looked very fake to me during the film. I give Effects 2 thumbs up. The Plot was very good, and the cinematography was great. This being a Quentin Tarantino film, it had plenty of violent scenes. But, they were all followed by funny moments, which broke the tension. I went there knowing that in Tarantino films, the violence is often exaggerated or almost comical, like in Kill Bill. In Django Unchained, I would say it was exaggerated, but not verging on being comical. All the actors were great in the movie. Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz were great together. It was also a good revenge story. Some other parts of the story were not historically accurate, like the sport that was made up for the film, and the fact that dynamite was not around for almost decade later. I give 2 thumbs up for Plot.

That gives a grand total of 5 out of 7 thumps up for Django Unchained at a [3]. I would recommend the movie. It would not be a waste of your trees.
