Christoph Waltz took home an Oscar for his fantastic performance in Quentin Tarantino's hit Western. Waltz plays Dr. King Schultz, a bounty hunter who takes on a new protégé, freed slave Django (Jamie Foxx). When Django proves to be a natural at the bounty-hunting business, Schultz agrees to assist him in finding his wife (Kerry Washington), who's been sold to the evil Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). The film is definitely in keeping with Tarantino's bloody style, but it's massively entertaining. The DVD comes with a couple of featurettes and a soundtrack spot.
In this lightweight indie, commitment-phobe Sarah (Lizzy Caplan) breaks up with her boyfriend (Geoffrey Arend) after a very public proposal. She turns to her sister Beth (Alison Brie) for some moral support, but Beth is too busy planning her own wedding to listen. Once Sarah meets Jonathan (Mark Webber), she starts to confront her issues with relationships and vulnerability. Like its characters, Save the Date is flawed, but enjoyable to watch.
