Django Unchained was yet another incredibly brutal and engaging masterpiece by Tarantino. The characters are likable and believable, and the story is very realistic. It is the first Western I've ever seen that deals directly with slavery.
Say what you want about Tarantino, but the man has the balls to tackle controversial issues in his films. Django Unchained proved that he still has a few badass stories left to tell, and I for one am more than happy to listen.
