The Hateful Eight (2015)

“When John Ruth ‘The Hangman’ catches you, you hang.”

What’s it about?

John Ruth finds himself having trust issues when he gets stuck in a lodge with another bounty hunter, a man claiming to be a sheriff and four more unfamiliar faces. Who is telling the truth and who is trying to steal his bounty?

Who’s in it?

Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Tim Roth to name a few.

Why should I watch it?

+ Solid performances from a great cast
+ Love the dark humour
+ Amazing dialogue
+ Keeps you guessing
+ Bloody shootouts
+ Maybe we CAN all just get along

Why shouldn’t I watch it?

– If you’re not a fan of Cluedo
– Showing Channing Tatum’s name in the opening credits
– If you don’t have 3 hours to spare (it doesn’t feel like 3 hours though, to be fair)
– If you think movies are making kids more violent

Anything else?

Going into a Tarantino film, you know what you’re getting into. A lot of blood, shootouts and n-words. There are better Tarantino films out there but it’s still a damn good movie. An alternative choice if they run out of royale with cheese.

7/10

  1. I finally saw this and it is a beautifully made movie since I had just seen the classic John Wayne movie, The Searchers. This movie is an artpiece because Tarantino was going after The Searchers’ panoramic vision look and he succeeded. Classic Western look, further colored by goriness toward the end. Wow! Didn’t expect that ending, kinda . . .
