Very few critics have even seen Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” at this point. Those that have are mostly under an embargo that doesn’t end until early next week — but Kristian Harloff and Mark Ellis of The Schmoes Know Movies show on YouTube have already published their video review of the movie. You can watch it below.
Basically it’s a five minute rave with very few qualifications (the “Schmoes” rate the film 4.5 and 4.25 out of 5 stars, respectively). They quibble a little about the film’s longish runtime, but they adore Jamie Foxx and particularly Christoph Waltz, who they say is even more fun to watch here than in “Inglourious Basterds” because he’s playing a good guy this time. They also liked the dialogue, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, and QT’s typically ecclectic soundtrack selections. “Tarantino does it,” Harloff says, summing it up. “He makes it work.”
Here’s their review; “Django Unchained” opens on Christmas Day:
