Cinema Dave  Swashbuckling ournalist and

"Django Unchained" should have chained the running time.

Despite Spike Lee's ill wishes, Quentin Taratino's **Django Unchained** has become a Golden Globe Award winning Box office success. Even though this western suffers from his superfluous Taratino touches, **Django Unchained** is the director/writer's most entertaining movie yet.

Clocking in at almost three hours, Django (Jamie Foxx) is a slave separated from his wife, Brumhilda (Kerry Washington), who lives on a Mandingo Plantation owned and operated by cruel Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his equally nasty manservant Stephen (Samuel L. Jackson). After sharing adventures and life experiences with a German bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz), Django learns enough life lessons to attempt to rescue his beloved.

**Django Unchained** is full of little interesting details with some creative violence and first rate performances from Jackson, Waltz and DiCaprio.
