Thomas' Review of Django Unchained
Rarely hampered by its own anachronism-based humor and sometimes needless racism throughout, 'Django Unchained' is a well-balanced, fast-paced Spaghetti Western, with all the witty dialogue, graphic violence, and gore that you'd ever want from a Quentin Tarantino outing. Both DiCaprio and Waltz (as Calvin Candie and Dr. King Schultz, respectively) turn in Oscar-worthy performances, stealing each and every scene that they're in. Tarantino fans and non-followers of the legendary cult classic director alike will find themselves swept away in this lush, darkly comical roller-coaster ride of a movie.
Final Grade: A-
