#Leo's Fucking Oscar

New Stills from “Django Unchained” featuring Leonardo DiCaprio as plantation owning villain wielding a hammer.  Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx look awesome too.  

I live in the hope that “Django Unchained” will get Leo his f*&king Oscar.  

Cast of “Django Unchained” Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington and Christoph Waltz.  Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael K. Williams (“Chalky ani’t building no bookcase”).  This cast is 100% BAMF!

Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty.

Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.

"Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy award-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of "Candyland," an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody (Kurt Russell) to battle each other for sport. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy award-nominee Samuel L Jackson), Candie’s trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organisation closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival …"

Warden: Did you enjoy God’s latest gift?Teddy Daniels: What?Teddy Daniels: God’s gift. [points to the sky] The violence. When I came downstairs in my home and I saw a tree in my living room, it reached out for me like a divine hand. God loves violence.Teddy Daniels: I…I hadn’t noticed.Warden: Sure you have. Why else would there me so much of it? It’s in us. It’s what we are. We wage war, we burn sacrifices and pillage and plunder and tear at the flesh of our brothers. And why? Because God gave us violence to wage in his honor.Teddy Daniels: I thought God gave us moral order.Warden: There’s no moral order as pure as this storm. There’s no moral order at all. There’s just this; can my violence conquer yours?Teddy Daniels: I’m not violent.Warden: Yes, you are. You’re as violent as they come. I know this because I’m as violent as they come. With the constraints of society we’re lifted. And I was all that stood between you and me? You would crack my skull and eat my meaty parts. Wouldn’t you? But Cawley thinks that you’re harmless, that you can be controlled. But I know different.Teddy Daniels: You don’t know me.Warden: Oh, but I do.Teddy Daniels: No, you don’t. You don’t know me at all.Warden: Oh, I know you. We’ve known each other for centuries. If I was to sink my teeth into your eye right now, would you be able to stop me before I blinded you?Teddy Daniels: Give it a try.Warden: That’s the spirit.
