I think it's something of a return to form for Tarantino. I was disappointed with Basterds, didn't rate the grindhouse films and thought Kill Bill 2 dragged a fair bit. Django was filled with memorable scenes and quotable lines. Foxx, Waltz and DiCaprio all were great but Jackson's reaction to Django riding up on a horse was a real standout moment for me.
I thought Django was an incredible disappointment but I loved Samuel L Jackson's performance. I'd started snoozing before he arrived.
