Django Unchained

Django Unchained ★★★★

Hugely enjoyable, Tarantino's homage to the spagetti westerns of the past, and his re-imagining of genre classic Django.

I think Tarantino gets the balance right in a film where the stoic hero could be overshadowed by the charasmatic duo of Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio. The first 2/3's of the film belong to these two, while Jamie Foxx gets his chance to shine in the last act.

The highlight for me was the scene involving the KKK and their hoods which was very funny.

The only low point was Tarantino's cameo, and terrrible Aussie accent which was painful. Someone make him stop.
