Django Unchained broke box office records on opening day, but we know one person who didn't make it out to theaters to check out Tarantino's latest flick.
In an interview with Vibe magazine, filmmaker Spike Lee refused to share his thoughts about Django, saying, "I can't speak on it 'cause I'm not gonna see it..." Although, he did go on to reveal, "All I'm going to say is that it's disrespectful to my ancestors."
Lee also took to his Twitter account to express his stance on the film's subject matter, and how it deals with race and historical issues, saying "American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western."
But Lee isn't Tarantino's only critic, David Germain of the Associated Press describes Django as, "Tarantino at his most puerile and least inventive, the premise offering little more than cold, nasty revenge and barrels of squishing, squirting blood."
Despite the controversy, the movie claims an 89 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, along with plenty of positive reviews. Rene Rodriguez of The Miami Herald says, "Django Unchained is the most brutal film Quentin Tarantino has ever made. But the movie is also exciting and ironic and, at times, explosively funny: Even at his most serious, Tarantino can't help but entertain and show you a good time."
Let's open up to the discussion to you, moviegoers. What do you think of Django, Spike Lee's opinions, and the controversy surrounding the film? Tell us what you think in the comments below, and be sure to subscribe to Clevver Movies!
