Django Unchained

Django Unchained

Few things say “Old West” like bounty hunters do, and bounty hunting certainly plays into the Red Dead video games. While some Westerns  feature this well-worn trope, arguably the best is Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino’s 2012 “spaghetti Western.” While the movie can be enjoyed as a darkly comic romp through the Antebellum South, Tarantino’s Oscar-winning script is a blatant denouncement of both American slavery and lingering racism, the latter of which he would more incisively dissect in the superior The Hateful Eight (also a great Western).

With great performances (Christoph Waltz won an Oscar for his work here) and stunning cinematography, Django Unchained is one of the better recent Westerns and is well worth your time.
