Django Unchained ★★★½

Calvin Candie: Are you brooding 'bout me getting the best of ya, huh?
Dr. King Schultz: Actually, I was thinking of that poor devil you fed to the dogs today, D'Artagnan. And I was wondering what Dumas would make of all this.
Calvin Candie: Come again?
Dr. King Schultz: Alexander Dumas. He wrote "The Three Musketeers." I figured you must be an admirer. You named your slave after his novel's lead character. If Alexander Dumas had been there today, I wonder what he would have made of it?
Calvin Candie: You doubt he'd approve?
Dr. King Schultz: Yes. His approval would be a dubious proposition at best.
Calvin Candie: Soft hearted Frenchy?
Dr. King Schultz: Alexander Dumas is black.

I appreciate this flick more with each rewatch. It is entertaining and QT’s dialogue pops as always. But it’s Waltz (rightfully won an Oscar here for best supporting, and think he’s one of the greatest actors alive due to his work here and Inglorious Basterds) and DiCaprio’s work here that make this so damn rewatchable. Sam Jackson too. Him and DiCaprio are hilarious and their relationship is too. A lot of good character acting going on here. One thing I’ll always wonder tho, is how Will Smith woulda been in the Django role. Also, QT has a gift with scoring and song choices for his flicks...
