Got to watch Django Unchained finally (felt like an age for this to finally get to the big-screen), and as an unashamed Tarantino fanboy this was a near perfect film for me. Brilliant performances by Foxx and Waltz, both really commanded the screen, and it was great to really enjoy the character Waltz played, and not just the performance. I think I fell in love with Dr. King Schultz from his first appearance.|
I know Tarantino has his foibles and is not everybody's cup of tea, but he didn't put a step wrong with this film...well, apart from a certain accent
Also, loved the nod to the original film with the scene at the bar, when Django discusses the spelling of the name with Franco Nero (the original Django), nice touch
Amazing/10 - I would go and watch this again immediately, that's how hooked I was. Anybody who says it drags too much near the end clearly doesn't enjoy a good story.
Also, the wife made me watch Tango and Cash for the first time, can't believe I missed this when it originally came out. I've watched a lot of 'shit' films from the 80's/90's and how this was overlooked I'll never know.
Great, shit 80's action film.
