Django Unchained (6:20PM Show)

Awesome cast, action adventure rife with political incorrectness....awesome!

Showtime is 6:20PM.  I will be at the theater by 5:30 and we should head in for seats around 6:50.

In general, I arrive at the theater an hour before the show to start gathering people, and we head in for seats about 30 minutes before the show, so we can sit together.  This also allows us to take turns getting snacks, etc., before the previews start.

There has been a lot of buzz about this movie, so it is probably a good idea to buy your tickets ahead of time.  

Please note, if for some reason this movie sells out, they will probably make us line up in the lobby.  If not, look for us at the tables by the escalator.  If you miss the group ahead of time, come find us after.  We gather in the hallway outside of the theater we just saw the movie in, to discuss the film a bit, allow for restroom breaks and to get a head count of all those who would like to go out after for drinks and munchies.

$$$$Managing the after event is much easier if everyone brings cash, so please plan ahead if you want to go out with the group after.$$$$$

Plot Summary: Set in the South two years before the Civil War, "Django Unchained" stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles – dead or alive.

Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South’s most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.

Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of “Candyland,” an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody to battle each other for sport. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candie's trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival...

    Great movie! Awesome production values. Very talented cast with lots of fun minor roles (Don Johnson) and cameos (Bruce Dern, Russ Tamblyn, Tom Wopat...even Tom Savini pops up as a dog handler!) I found some scenes difficult to watch (Mandingo fighting, dog attack), but I don't believe the violence was gratuitous; I think it was appropriate given the genre. Overall, highly entertaining. Glad I braved the weather and saw it. Thanks for organizing, Doreen!

    The film was brilliant. Very hard to watch at times but very well done. The acting and directing were top notch. The 2 hours and 45 minutes flew by. Dinner at the Rockbottom after was lively and full of interesting conversation. Thanks to everyone who braved the snow to come see a food movie with me.

      Good food movies? Two of my favorites are "Babette's Feast" and "Like Water For Chocolate." ;-p :-)

    Loved the movie, drinks and dinner @ Rockbottom, seeing old friends, making new ones. Hmmm, I guess I need to do this more often ... ;-)

    • Paul K.

      Yes. I quite agree. ;-)

    Although the orgiastic level of violence did threaten to overwhelm all other aspects of the film, still, the very strong story, acting, cinematography, and overall directing managed to prevail. I'm not a Quentin Tarantino "fan," but I have seen several of his films, and I'd put "Django Unchained" just below my personal "favorite," "Inglorious Basterds." Dinner and drinks at "The Rockbottom" with 19 other members after the show was quite nice. Thanks, again, Doreen.

      Of course, u can always wait 'til u get 2 the theatre and try to get tix then, but I wouldn't. This movie-directed by Tarantino, with a blockbuster cast, has been getting major "buzz" for a while now.

  • Paul K.

    Hey, did anyone else notice? This movie is 2 hrs., 45mins. long. Not a problem-just thought people might appreciate the "heads-up."

    December 29, 2012

    • Tom

      Thanks for the heads-up Paul. I didn't realize it was that long but I will still be there...

    Fandango lists movie times as 3:30p, 7:20p, 11:20p. Can I assume we would see the 7:20p? Just want to make sure before I buy the tickets.
