Tarantino Film Nominated for Best Screenplay| Leisure by Staff Reporter
"Samuel L Jackson gives a great performance, as always."
Django Unchained, the 2012 Quentin Tarantino movie, which has been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Screenplay this year, features some excellent performances from actors Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson.
Waltz, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actor, plays a German bounty hunter who frees a black slave (Jamie Foxx) and helps him find his estranged wife who is in the hands of a brutal and, somewhat deranged, Mississippi plantation owner (Leonardo DiCapprio).
The film has been criticized for being too racist and too violent, but Tarantino has heard those accusations before, and generally shrugs them off.
In this writer's opinion, Django Unchained, is one of Tarantino's better movies, perhaps not quite as good as Inglorious Bastards, but still well worth watching, particularly if you have enjoyed Tarantino's previous works (Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Bastards, Kill Bill Vol I and II).
It may yet win an Oscar or two for this controversial and talented director.
