Quentin Tarantino refuses to discuss any link between movie violence and real life violence during a heated interview with Krishnan Guru-Murphy about his latest film Django Unchained.
Oh dear.. poor Quentin he really did get his knickers in a twist. “I am not your slave and you are not my master” – Hahahahaha.
How big is this man’s ego?
I bet if a black director approached Hollywood executives to make a film about American slave Nat Turner they would laugh that director out of the room.
I am not a Tarantino fan (the excessive use of the word ‘nigger’ and over the top blood and gore annoys me) but for those who are interested his Oscar nominated ‘slave epic’ Django Unchained will open in UK cinema’s on Friday January 18th.
Oh and in case you missed it Django slave dolls are now on sale.
Last fall, the National Entertainment Collectibles Association, Inc. (NECA), in tandem with the Weinstein Company, announced a full line of consumer products based on characters from the movie. First up are pose-able eight-inch action figures with tailored clothing, weaponry, and accessories in the likeness of characters played by Foxx, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Leonardo DiCaprio, James Remar and Christoph Waltz. The dolls are currently on sale via Amazon.com.
A press release announcing the deal stated that the line was similar to the retro toy lines that helped define the licensed action-figure market in the 1970s and that the collection will include a full apparel and accessories line. At the time of the announcement, NECA president Joel Weinshanker said the company was “very excited to bring the stellar cast of Django to life and honored to be working with another Tarantino masterpiece.
