Django Unchained is finally out to add to your Quentin Tarantino collection, and this blood rem gem is undeniably a shining masterpiece by the man who has entertained us for more than 20 years.

Tarantino’s follow-up to Inglourious Basterds is another historical romp that follows bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Oscar winner Christoph Waltz) and a freed slave named Django (Jamie Foxx) who set out to seek vengeance against the evils of men during a time in America’s dark history: slavery. But much more than that, it’s really the story of Django and the lengths he goes to in order to save his wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) from devious slave master Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio) as told in a Spaghetti Western style that invokes what Tarantino loves about that particular genre.

The experience was a huge throwback on the big screen, but you will notice more cinematic details on DVD. In HD, the bloodbath is much richer and pulpy, and the production shines clearly. The characters’ journey in a private setting provides much more introspection on all the facets of this gorgeously brutal picture. You get the jokes in the banter between characters that you might have missed the first time and enjoy the almost Butch Cassidy/The Sundance Kid-esque relationship between Django and King. From the sets to the costuming, a curiosity of exactly how Tarantino created this imaginative world is elicited and is also addressed in the special features.

In the Remembering J. Michael Riva, the cast and crew pay their respects to their production designer who passed away while working on the film. They praise Riva’s authenticity and respect of the period.

The feature The Costume Designs of Sharen Davis also provide insight on the amount of work and detail that went into dressing the characters in period appropriate attire while also evoking a more Tarantino-skewed world through the use of colors.

And in fun Tarantino fashion, we also get taken on trip behind the scenes with the Reimagining the Spaghetti Western: The Horses and Stunts of Django Unchained. This portions shows us exactly how some of the crazy stunts were pulled off and the amount of trust that went into the bloody sequences that Tarantino wanted.

A must-need addition to any film fan’s movie library, Django Unchained earns that spot on your DVD shelf.
