"The 'D' is silent hillbilly."
This movie blew my mind. Leo is great. Jamie Foxx is great. Of course Christoph Waltz is fantastic. Samuel L. Jackson is disturbing and hilarious. Don Johnson is an excellent and humorous racist.
If you don't like Tarantino you would probably HATE this movie. This is his most offensive work since Natural Born Killers.
If you like Tarantino chances are you will love this. It is his grittiest film and he absolutely nails the 70s exploitation film style that he parodied earlier in this career. I would not call this a parody, its more of an homage to that style.
Sergio Leone fans will see nods to the Clint Eastwood spaghetti Westerns too (Hey Blond! You know what you are? Just a dirty son-of-a-b!
Along with Lawless, I think this is the best soundtrack of the year.
Django unchained is a twisted Western/John Brown fantasy tale about an "uppity" cowboy/bounty hunter/former slave who goes on a quest through Southern plantations to rescue his still enslaved wife.
If you are a Tarantino fan SEE IT IMMEDIATELY. Otherwise If you like to be shocked, disgusted, and laugh at the same time give it a try. IF you like boring vanilla, a+b= seen it before movies, go see Monsters Inc or Jack Reacher.
Django and Looper are favorite movies of the year
