5.0 out of 5 stars Tarantino unchained,
I've always loved Tarantino and now I'm used with the amount of blood and guts spilled in his films and I don't have to watch through my fingers anymore as I sometimes do with other deadly scenes in other movies. This one is so atrocious and the killings (and some torture) are so all over the place that if it wasn't for the terrific screenplay and Cristoph Waltz (and almost everything else in this movie) I wouldn't have watched it for close to 3 hours, way past my bedtime during working days. I'm sure that the actors and the crew had so much fun doing it that they didn't want the movie to end and it seems, at one point at least, after about two hours or so, that Tarantino felt the same way when Django killed all the other characters and was ready to start killing the crew, the director, the producers, the spectators and so on. But Tarantino, being the genius that he is, had no problem inventing more characters for Django to kill and as I started to guess, he finished by blowing up everything in sight and only him, Brunhilda and the spectators (mercifully) were left to enjoy the rest of their life. Tarantino appears in the movie by the end but has no luck, dies young.
Well, I survived and so might you.

5.0 out of 5 stars 6 out of 5 stars,
This review is from: Django Unchained / Django Déchaîné (Bilingual) [Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy] (Blu-ray)Definitely Quentin Tarantino's best movie in recent years and definitely one of his films period. I have watched this movie from beginning to end multiple times and it's still exciting every time. Like Quentin's older flicks the jokes don't get old, they get quotable. Django Unchained has everything mixed together perfectly, plot, action, character development, suspense, aaaaaand over the top swearing, with all of it paced just right for the stories needs. Jamie Foxx gives one of his best performances as Django and Christopher Waltz as Dr. King Schultz has certainly stolen the show with his humor and exceptional beard. Leonardo DiCaprio plays a villain you start to like immediately. Certainly not for his cruel actions but for his gentleman hospitality that he extends to Django and Dr. King even though he has his suspicions. Now we all know that we don't watch Tarantino movies for the action, we watch them for the dialog. Quentin always writes the most interesting dialog and Django Unchained is no exception. Every time I saw this movie everyone kept quite, glued to the screen, and at full attention just waiting to hear what would come out of the characters mouths next. Now there were a couple scenes that made me wonder if the Quentin went to far with how slaves were treated but that just helped me realize we're not as desensitized to violence as politicians like to think and that things can still have a real impact on viewers. If you have the opportunity you should definitely take the chance to view this movie because it truly is a one in ten thousand.
