Django Unchained Trailer: Revenge is a Dish Best Served Cool

Ethically borderline central characters – Check, 70s Kung Fu Movie simplicity – Check, Coolness bordering on latent homoeroticism – Check. Must be Tarantino’s back. Since the rampaging glory and Revenge of the Jews that was Inglorious Basterds I’ve been waiting (without really thinking about it often) for the next high octane dose of the ‘Tino.

While we’re never going to see the edginess of Pulp Fiction again these films are getting broader and more fun. It looks awesome. And looking at the slightly self aware casting it’s classic Tarantino!

It’s like Roots but where the slaves kick ass!!

Abraham Lincoln : Vampire Hunter Trailer

It’s easy to see this as the end of real cinema but that’s an over simplification. This is, in part what cinema is for. Everyone’s had that crazy idea of this being the best thing they could imagine. Now, thanks to cinema we can see it happen. It’s the realisation of ephemeral and transient dreams made large and available to everyone. That should be what cinema is about, surely?

Plus; did you see him smash that tree with an axe?!! That was awesome. Abraham Lincoln has returned, directed by a Russian and fighting Vampires. Can’t wait!
