The Hateful Eight (2015)

v1

Starring: Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Channing Tatum, Bruce Dern, James Parks

Plot: Two bounty hunters and a prisoner seek shelter from a deadly winter storm in Wyoming where they meet three strangers – all of whom aren’t who they say they are.

Rating: 9/10

Overall: Gotta love Tarantino! If you don’t like Tarantino – you probably won’t like this film. If you’re incredibly sensitive to violence and crude humor/language, you definitely won’t like this film. It’s raunchy and gory and hilarious. I think there were a few parts that I felt could’ve been better executed or left out – but overall, it had a solid plot. One thing I don’t like about Tarantino films is the “backwards” theme they tend to have…as in the films start somewhere in the middle or flashback from the end to the beginning. I like reading stories like that, but with films, I hate it. That’s my only real complaint. The entire film (is over two hours, I might add) is nearly over and then there’s a twist that leaves you with that “AHA!” moment…yet, “Did I really need to wait the ENTIRE film to reveal this?”
