Django Unchained

Tarantino has borrowed from Spaghetti Westerns often enough that it was high time he made his own — and Django Unchained ($25) is the result. Winner of two Oscars — the second Original Screenplay trophy for QT, and the second Supporting Actor award for Christoph Waltz — this nearly three-hour tale takes a look at slavery through the lens of pre-Civil War America, with Jamie Foxx in the titular role, and supported by Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio as an infamous plantation owner, Kerry Washington as his lost wife, and Samuel L. Jackson (of course) as a house slave. Expect lots of action, lots of dialogue, and gratuitous use of the N-word — but most of all, expect to be entertained.
