Out of all of the directors I love, there's one name that rules them all. One name, that when his next project is announced, I get as excited as a tween (or Espo) at a Twilight convention. And now we're here once again. Quentin Tarantino returns with his spaghetti revenge 'southern', 'Django Unchained'. Jamie Foxx is our titular star. Christoph Waltz returns to the Tarantino fold as Dr. King Schultz. And Leonardo Dicaprio is our villian, Calvin Candie. Does Tarantino's penchant for stylized violence and language deliver once again, or is the setting of this country's race relations pre-Civil War, too much to overcome? We'll review the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD. Then it's a new segment. The First Run Awards. We're going to run down the best actors and actresses, as well as some other fun categories for all of Quentin Tarantino's films. We hope you had a great New Years, and that you stayed clear of a place called Candie Land. We're The First Run.
