Django Unchained 9/10|
Saw it last night. One of the better Quentin Tarantino movies. I loved it up untill the last half hour or so. Christopher Waltz is brilliant (again), DiCaprio plays his villain role with surprising restraint (it would have been a very easy part to go all out camp with like Guy Pearce's dreadful performance in Lawless for instance).
My only gripe with most of QT's movies are his detours in tone within the same movie, making them unbalanced. This happens mostly when he tries to do (violent) comedy. The whole 'Bear Jew' scene in Inglorious Bastards comes to mind. Without those types of scenes his movies would improve tremendously.
For the same reason I remain convinced that Jackie Brown is still his best film. The most balanced and most 'real' protagonists.
