Fred's Review of Django Unchained
According to the Rotten Tomatoes scores, Django Unchained is the third best film of Tarantino's career, following Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. It has only one percentage point higher than Inglorious Basterds - which makes sense, since this film is essentially Inglorious Basterds in the pre-Civil War American south. Django Unchained has been criticized intensely for the flagrant usage of the N-word and the gratuitous amount of violence. However, the film uses both in a semi-realistic, incredibly complex manner - one that should not be judged by those who have not seen the film. The acting is superb and the soundtrack is excellent. It seems to run a little long, but, I'm not exactly complaining.
