    DJANGO UNCHAINED Is All Too Restrained

    A plantation in the antebellum South is a perfect setting for a Quentin Tarantino film. His movies flip expectations, revealing gangsters as mundane chatterboxes and assassins as loving parents, transforming the would-be victims of murderous stalkers and World War II Nazis into forces of vengeance.

    Review: 3 Different Opinions On The Good & The Bad Of Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained'

    Films by Quentin Tarantino aren't exactly Halley's Comet, but for a while there, they didn't come as often as some filmgoers would have liked.
