Boston Globe Film Critic Wesley Morris Djangoed By Mediaite

In an unusual confluence of influence, the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald both gave positive reviews to Quentin Tarantino’s new film, Django Unchained.

From James Verniere’s Herald review:

DJANGO UNCHAINEDQuentin Tarantino ‘Unchained’

Director charges into American slavery tale with guns blazing

You’ve seen “Lincoln.” Now, see the low low-down on slavery in America.

Brought to us by the much imitated, uniquely gifted and never surpassed Quentin Taran tino, the ultra-violent “Django Unchained” gives us a glimpse of a barbaric episode in American history through the twisted lenses of Tarantino and the Euro-spawned, Asian- influenced 1960s-’70s hybrid the spaghetti Western.

In addition to a terrific and fearless Jamie Foxx in the title role, a freed slave turned gunman named Django (“The d is silent”), the film has great Austrian actor Christoph Waltz (“Inglourious Basterds”) in fine fettle as Dr. King Schultz, a silver-tongued German immigrant and dentist along with his horse Fritz, whom he introduces to strangers. Dr. Schultz traverses the frontier in 1858 in a small coach with a giant tooth on its roof. The truth is Schultz  is a gun-slinging bounty hunter, complete with a spring-loaded derringer up his sleeve. Schultz brings in fugitives from justice dead or alive, preferably dead.

Equally enthusiastic was Globe film critic Wesley Morris . . .
