Django Unchained

Django Unchained ★★★★★

Hey what do you know, I think I have a new favorite Tarantino.

Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx make one of the baddest duos ever put to screen here. Everything is so much fun, so fueled by revenge, hatred and justice, really good stuff. Also Tarantino's extreme love for the western genre really bleeds through every moment, it's a wonderful sight to behold.

In all fairness it's not a flawless movie. As empowering and well meaning this movie clearly is, Quentin's story starts off a little white savior-ey, which is definitely a noticeable thorn in an otherwise very well crafted journey for Django's character. Beyond that there are some minor pacing issues, but I was so thoroughly entertained that it was never a bother.

A perfect movie? No. A new personal favorite of mine regardless? Absolutely!

A+
