In some of the longer scenes, Tarantino gives the impression he's feeling for a touch of his old dialogue gold dust, yet it never really quite comes off.

Yes, the sublime strays to the ridiculous. But all the while I just keep picturing Tarantino behind the camera re-imagining history and whispering to himself, This is so cool! If you like his style, this is another winner.

Django Unchained is probably Tarantino's best since Pulp Fiction.
Full Review | Original Score: 9.5/10

The first major Hollywood genre film about slavery with the slaves as the heroes, and we're going to get meta about it? On purpose?
October 22, 2018
Without a doubt this movie is made in the filmmaker's signature style, but it achieves much more.
September 4, 2018
A good film, and a crazily entertaining film, until Tarantino does blow everything up, at which point it just becomes rather silly.
August 30, 2018
It stops a compelling story dead in its tracks for a joke that isn't that funny.
August 24, 2018
Django Unchained is a must see, full stop. At the very least, films like this are an experience.
August 21, 2018
This vision of vengeance is morally problematic, but it contains a kernel of gospel truth: sometimes there is mercy, and even joy, in the fantasy that evil will meet an irrevocable end.
May 25, 2018
The film is at times brilliant but mostly infuriating. It is a good movie in that masturbatory way most Tarantino films are good.
April 30, 2018
Tarantino shows us the hypocritical European elegance spaghetti westerns layered underneath their operatic gunfights.
January 26, 2018
Tarantino takes a no-holds-barred approach and delivers another well-written, ultra-violent spectacle masked as a spaghetti western.

Where other movie histories might seek to teach, rewrite, or gild the stories of our collective past, Tarantino prefers to demonstrate how the movies can help us detonate history's legacies...
September 7, 2017
Django Unchained is a ruthless and romantic epic that is also filled with unbridled entertainment that challenges audiences, rather than coddling them.
Full Review | Original Score: A
September 1, 2017
It's an intelligently provocative, massively entertaining exercise in postmodern revisionism, highlighting how shamefully few movies Hollywood has ever made about slavery.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
August 21, 2017
It is perhaps a weakness of Tarantino's film, though surely consistent with the spaghetti western genre, that a great gulf separates the good guys from the bad. No room is left for the ugly, the ambiguous, the in-between.
August 14, 2017
It was a mixed bag for me; some great moments scattered about amongst lots of humdrum, considering the subject matter.
August 14, 2017
But I absolutely love and was blown away by Django Unchained, and I can't wait to see it again, and again after that.
November 9, 2016
The direction stays firmly within the predictable bounds of Tarantino's violent sensibility
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

...Tarantino being Tarantino, he doesn't just make a big, violent, sprawling western filled gunfights and clever talk and driven by revenge and Old Testament justice.
