Hidden Meaning in Django Unchained (Quentin Tarantino) – Earthling Cinema

Greetings, and welcome to Earthling Cinema. I am your host, Garyx Wormuloid. This week’s artifact is Django Unchained,
starring disabled musician Ray Charles and directed by podiatrist Quentino Tarantino
as a prequel to his earlier movie, The Hitler Buddies. The film begins in Texas just before the first
of America’s seven Civil Wars. Our protagonist is King Schultz, an inexplicably
German bounty hunter who buys an anthropomorphic piece of property named Django in order to
give him a makeover. Now sufficiently dolled up, they travel around
from town to town spreading the gospel of getting shot in the face. At one point an army of ghosts tries to stop
them but every good bounty hunter knows a ghost’s greatest weakness:
busters. Wabbit season sadly comes to an end, so rather
than split up Earth’s first ever interracial business friendship, Schultz decides to help
reunite Django with his wife Broomhilda, another piece of property who is also German for absolutely
no reason. They find her at a soup plantation called
Candyland, on the outskirts of the Peppermint Forest. Her owner, Calvin Candyland, is a real sportsman,
in the sense that he likes to sit on a sofa watching grown men UFC each other to death. So Schultz and Django pretend to be interested
in buying some of Calvin’s living sports equipment for $12,000 — which due to inflation equals
about 89 quintillion blargotrons. They try to throw Broomhilda into the deal
all casual-like, but Calvin’s dad Stephen doesn’t mess around when it comes to his hard-earned
blargotrons. He correctly guesses that they know Broomhilda
from before the opening credits started, so Calvin does the very reasonable thing of raising
the price to match their demand. Good old-fashioned capitalism. They sign the revised contract and everything
works out great for everyone. End of movie, right? Riiiiiight?? Oh that’s right! There hasn’t been nearly
enough human blood. Schultz decides his pride is the most valuable
substance on Earth, even more than truffled petroleum, so rather than risk touching Calvin’s
greasy little arm-claws, he chooses to get himself killed. Django is captured and sold to a bitcoin mine
with long hours and no health benefits. On the way there, Django uses his graduate-level
education to hoodwink some unsuspecting and entirely unnecessary Australians, then travels
back through the Molasses Swamp to Candyland. He explodes everything without much conflict,
and finally he and Broomhilda ride off together on two land-seahorses. Now end of movie. Django Unchained is first and five-most a
slavery revenge fantasy. White images stained with blood represent
the vengeance wreaked upon white slavers, the two colors combining into a more pleasing
pinkish hue. Violence against white people is frequently
depicted in grotesque, stylized detail. The massacre at Candyland is so cartoonish
that we have no choice but to contract our diaphragms in a laughing manner. Like this: Ha-Ha. In contrast, violence against slaves is more
realistic and often portrayed indirectly. In the climax of the pay-per-view UFC fight,
the spilled gumballs serve as a proxy for blood and guts, and our diaphragms remain
static as the killing strike is blocked from view. Like this… The horrifying scene where dogs rip D’Artagnan
apart is mostly portrayed through reaction shots and Oscar-nominated sound editing. The film takes inspiration from widely disparate
sources, from Spaghetti Westerns, to ravioli blaxploitation films, all the way to German
spätzle. But at its heart, Django Unchained is an example
of a revisionist Western. Where traditional Hollywood Westerns emphasized
mythical American themes such as manifest destiny and calling people “pilgrim,” revisionist
Westerns provided a different perspective, addressing the exploitation of Native Americans
and the decline of the cowboy era in light of industrialization. Django Unchained takes aim at slavery’s power
structures by showing that they were perpetuated by frauds. Big Daddy initially makes a big fuss about
a black man riding one of Allah’s creatures on his land, which threatens to undercut his
dominion. But he immediately caves when Schultz offers
him a financial teat from whence he can suckle. Calvin pretends to be a James Francophile,
which reflects his opinion that he’s better than everyone else. In reality, he’s just another ignorant hick
with the hots for his sister. Schultz and Django are able to easily infiltrate
these power structures by using the very illusions that reinforce them — plus, you know, money. Schultz plays the genteel dentist to put people
at ease with novocaine and gain the element of surprise. After Django is captured, he is able to convince
his captors not only to release him, but to arm him, because they assume the power structures
protecting immigrants in America will hold. And they did hold, at least until America
was met with the greatest immigrant of all: an asteroid made of dark matter. For Earthling Cinema, I’m Garyx Wormuloid. The south pole will rise again!

  1. Hilda speaks German because they needed a way for Schultz to seemingly want to purchase her, an american slave who speaks his language could become beneficial, he's German because, well, Christoph Waltz is German, and i guess just keeping him that way would be better than trying to put on a fake English or american accent. There are some points that are good, but this should've been a hidden meaning video with Jared. Not ALL the violence towards the slavers is over the top, only small roles and meaningless bodies to be turned inside out are turned into blood balloons, however, big characters like Django's slavers from the start, and Candy's death, are played low key with the violence, the gunshot wounds only dripping blood out instead of huge bursts of gore, this is because this scenes are impact to the emotions of the characters, having gore would offset those emotions. (also the last scene doesn't have conflict because that's his win, that's like saying the end of the avengers is bad because tony suggesting schwarma isn't conflict heavy, its the big win of the film)

  2. watching this series i've been wondering what killed the human race,we finally know it's an asteroid made of dark matter!brutal!

  3. The actual hidden meaning is that certain people will wear totally unneeded articles just for the sake of accessorizing. Surely those sunglasses and that hat were totally unnecessary for someone of African ancestry.

  4. i dont get it. u spend an hour summarizing the plot and two seconds talking about the meaning. if i wanted the plot i'd watch the movie u silly fuc

  5. Brunhilda is the single most well-known German name, right next to Hildebrand, Hadubrand and Haribrand (from Hildebrandslied) and Siegfried and Krimhilda (along with Brunhilda from the saga of Nibelungs – Nibelungenlied)

  6. hey y'all love your videos Garyx is the shit, but mvmt watches suck balls sorry but i bought 3 different ones and none of them keep accurate time i sent them back and all the replacements are off by the same amount over 24 hrs.. love your videos!!!!

  7. Was that the movie that said the Civil War began in 1860? And the one that showed the bust of Nefertiti a lot (discovered somewhere around 1910 or so)?
