Movie Review: Django Unchained

Today I am going to write a movie review of the movie, Django Unchained.  This movie stars Jamie Foxx as Django (pronounced Jango--the D is silent), Christoph Waltz as Dr. King Schultz, and Leonardo DiCaprio as Calvin Candie (owner of the plantation, Candyland).  This movie takes place in the south before the Civil War, and it is a western.   I have to admit that I was a bit diappointed when Candyland was just a stupid plantation and not a place where a dog could find candy growing in the fields, but despite the initial disappointment, it was still a very good movie. Django is a slave who is bought by Dr. King Schultz, a dentist who became a bounty hunter.  I suppose that people probably like bounty hunters more than dentists so it was probably a wise career move.  Imagine spending all that time in school only to have most patients not want to visit your office.  King needed Django because he had 3 people to bring in, but did not know what they looked like, and Django did.  After catching the 3 criminals, Django continued to work with King, and King agreed to help him find his wife.  Django and his wife had attempted to run so both were sold to different plantations which is why there were separated.  I give this movie 4 paws up, a tail wag, and some kisses which would be about a 9 out of 10 on the human movie scale.  I might add that there was a cameo appearance by some dogs, but since the dogs were out to catch a slave, they weren't your typical friendly dogs like myself.  However, they were just doing what their humans told them to do so they aren't really responsible for their unsocialable behavior.
