Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Quentin Tarantino released his newest creation, “Django Unchained,” Dec. 25. Tarantino pairs an unlikely duo, a bounty hunter, played by Christoph Waltz, and a freed slave, played by Jamie Foxx, in pre-Civil War society. The Daily and Current staffers, along with some Northwestern students, respond:

“Ugh. Too ridiculous to enjoy.” – Amber Gibson

“Another Oscar for Christoph Waltz.” – Sammy Caiola

“Brilliant despite lacking Sally Menke.” – Sydney Zink

“I think Tarantino overdid it.” – Jonathon McBride

“PC just isn’t as fun.” – Sam Freedman

“Golden Globes AND Academy Awards?” – Stephanie Haines

“Making the KKK seem funny.” – Caroline Picard 

“Badass movie — gets you pumped.” – Jack Qiu

“It’s violent, extreme and awesome.” – Aaron Goldblum

“There was lots of blood.” – Annie Trimber
