Wow, well I'm glad to see you guys feel that way, in all honesty. QT is probably my favorite filmmaker, so the more props his work gets the better! For me, I'd say Django is my 4th favorite QT film, behind 1) Pulp Fiction, 2) True Romance (writer), and 3) Inglorious Basterds. Probably many would rank Django above Basterds, but I just think about how affected by and engaged with each film I was. Christoph Waltz was great in Django, but in my opinion he gave a performance in Basterds that was one of the greatest supporting performances of all time....maybe even the best I've ever seen. It takes a LOT for me to feel intimidated by an on-screen character, and that's even with the understanding that I usually allow myself to just get sucked into the films when I'm viewing them. He took the Hans Landa character and scared the HELL out of me from the very opening sequence of the film. It was a performance that captivated me then and it's stayed with me over the last few years and with each successive viewing. Just an unbelievable job. I didn't really feel that Django had that type of performance. I don't mean that as a knock at all, cause I really did love the film....I just didn't feel there was anything there that really left me in awe like I felt with Landa. I think Leo DiCaprio came the closest for me, although the acting was solid all around.
All in all, I'm just a huge fan of QT...and even though I rank Django fourth among his films, like I said, these are all among my favorites ever.
