Title: django derailed
Post by: luiz_iniciante on April 13, 2013, 11:16:20 am
With all the discussion of politics that goes on here, I feel that people never get down to the serious stuff. What the hell happened to Django last night? I was looking forward to seeing that one.

"Technical Difficulties" .... But, no one knows. Some say a few scenes with nudity. The movie has not been banned, and it might be released again in the near future. But as for the exact cause.... Your guess is as good as the next person.

Whatever the reason, I thought SARFT damaged its credibility. Pulling the film at the last minute made it look both heavy-handed and incompent. Lacking an inside source, I can only imagine that the conversation amongst themselves went something like this:

'You have actually watched this movie, right?'

'Me?! I thought you were going to watch it. I had to watch Titanic 3D. I'm not even supposed to here; I'm officially still on sick leave, remember?'

'All right, all right. It opens tonight. It's only 2 o'clock. Let's watch the damn thing together.'

3 hours go by. Two officials stagger out of the dark cinema into light of day, more blinded by what they have seen on the screen than the sunlight outside.

'Well-endowed black men being flagellated naked?'

'Slaves overthrowing their cruel masters?'

'This is why we killed Kill Bill in the first place'

'Screening time's in a few hours. What are we gonna do?'

'Here's an idea... How about we re-release Titanic?'

A measured pause follows.

'Worth a shot.'
