"The Hateful Eight" by Yojimbo

A bounty hunter transporting a murderer shelters from a blizzard in a remote way station, but begins to suspect that some of his fellow travellers are not who they claim to be.

Quentin Tarantino’s eighth film is not only an obvious homage to the Spaghetti Western, but also a kind of Agatha Christie-style whodunnit. As ever with his films, the cast is strong, the dialogue characterful and the outdoor scenes are beautifully shot, although thanks to the fact that the film is set almost entirely within the same room, it does feel very stagey. This leads to my one issue with it, which is its sheer length; although it never drags exactly, I couldn’t shake the feeling that the story could’ve been told in two hours quite comfortably. The film actually weighs in at two and three quarters which ...

Claustrophobic Paranoia the Tarantino Way

I read that one of the major influences for Tarantino for The Hateful Eight was John Carpenter's claustrophobic, paranoid horror classic, The Thing. It makes a lot of sense in that if you turned that film into a western and got rid of the alien (but kept all the mistrust and paranoia) you would wind up with this film. You even get Kurt Russell to star and Ennio Morricone (who worked on The Thing) to score the film. It all works out in the end and I am happy that a little breach didn't shelve this movie for good.

Tarantino presents The Hateful Eight as a kind of stage play - it all takes place (for the most part) in one location among a small group of actors. I would have killed to be able to see the road show version, but, alas, it didn't play near me to indulge in such spectacle. A mo...

Tarantinos ultrabrutaler und hochgradig verquatschter The Hateful Eight ist eine imponierende Vorstellung von Filmkunst, aber auch ein zutiefst hässlicher Film. Der Western bietet Gewalt voller Schadenfreude und eine ungeheuer nihilistische Sicht auf die Welt - Tarantino Kritiker werden sich darin bestätigt fühlen, er hätte nun ihre schlimmsten Ängste erfüllt. The Hateful Eight spielt irgendwann nach dem Bürgerkrieg. Wir erleben eine Gruppe von Cowboys im Schnee von Wyoming. Fast eine halbe Stunde Zeit nimmt sich Tarantino, um die Gruppe vorzustellen: John "The Hangman" Ruth (Kurt Russell), der im Grunde nur das Abziehbild klassischer Western darstellt. Er spricht sogar wie ein Cowboy der 50er. O.B. (James Parks) ist sein Fahrer, Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) seine Gefan...

What a delight to watch this exquisite movie

"Now, Daisy, I want us to work out a signal system of communication. When I elbow you real hard in the face, that means: shut up."

Countless film enthusiasts were waiting impatiently for the new "Star Wars" movie last year. Believe it or not, I wasn't really. On the contrary, I was waiting for the new film by Quentin Tarantino. Sorry Tarantino haters, but Yankee Doodle Dandee, this was again a brilliant film by the most rebellious, anarchic director Hollywood ever saw. You have to give him credit for one thing : he remained true to his personal style. So once again we get a typical Tarantino movie with acrimonious dialogs, racist statements and a bloody apotheosis. The end result is a kind of "Reservoir Dogs" mixed with "Django Unchained", which ...

The Hateful Eight - Movie Review

Major Marquis Warren: "Move a little strange, you're gonna get a bullet. Not a warning, not a question...A bullet!".

The story is about a blizzards strands together a group of bounty hunters and ne'er-do-wells in a Wyoming cabin. But the small group is about to face a trail of betrayal and deception - and survival is certainly not guaranteed.

So I've finally got a chance to watch The Hateful Eight and I thought it was great. Mr. Tarantino has done it again everyone and while I don't think it's he's best one (In my opinion) but I would be lying to myself and to you if I didn't say I was entertained.

Quentin Tarantino is one of the best directors working today and he hasn't lost his touch yet, because he's directing in this movie was both stylish and old school. What Tara...

Indulge in Tarantino

'The Hateful Eight' is Tarantino's latest film. His specifics are all over this one, to the point where some people would consider most of it to be self-indulgent. I do see some of that present. I don't think the close to three hour runtime is needed given the circumstances of the film itself. The story is almost entirely driven by his trademark dialogue. I can't fault that area, as I've always enjoyed his intricate wordplay. It actually works to the strength of the entire movie, because it does feel like a stage play. His characters, and their words, drive almost every bit of the plot. Everyone is hiding secrets. We peel back layers of the entire group as the night progresses. Tension and paranoia arise out of the many exchanges. Alliances are formed and deformed between multi...
