If you didn't mind the crazy amount of blood spilled in Seven Psychopaths, then you'll love Django Unchained. Quentin Tarantino's take on slavery in the Deep South, or the Far West, not sure which. I wasn't a fan of Reservoir Dogs - its violence was too dark for me; I couldn't take it. But Django Unchained is a much brighter kind of movie. Plenty of violent deaths, including innocents, but there is something happy about it. Django is a black slave freed by a bounty hunter who needs him to identify three criminals. Django proves to be a natural at the bounty hunting, and they work together for a while. But all Django wants is to find his wife and free her. Let's just say it doesn't end well for everybody, and Leonardo di Caprio is brilliant as the Southern landlord with a thirst for violence. You will never want to paint the hall red after seeing this movie.
