With the help of a German bounty hunter, a freed slave sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner. (IMDb)
Score another one for Tarantino. It was everything I have come to expect from his films. Exciting, darkly funny, fake blood everywhere, vaguely ridiculous, everything. Acting all around was fantastic. Jamie Foxx was a ton of fun to watch, he made Django a hero that everyone can root for and get behind. Also, loved the chemistry between him and Kerry Washington. They may not have been on screen together a whole lot, but I loved the two of them. Christoph Waltz knocks it out of the park again. Not surprised. Loved how he handled the language of his character, which was great, another nod to Tarantino, who also wrote it. Then, Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson made great antagonists. DiCaprio was borderline crazy, yet hilarious at the same time, I really enjoyed his performance. Going back to the writing, Tarantino did a nice job balancing the dark humor with some moments of real drama that were exciting, as well as treading the whole slavery storyline really well. Overall, I loved it, would love to watch it again.
