The Hateful Eight may really be sort of terrible.
Sep 1, 2017
While it's not his best film (it's far too long and indulgent at times), Tarantino absorbs the audience into a scene, compelling you to look at each and every inch of it--indicative of many vintage films (his usual film playground).

The Hateful Eight often feels more like a sadistic stage play than a movie. [Full review in Japanese]

The Hateful Eight has lots to love, but just as much to abhor, making it an elegant enigma that's as frustrating as it is impressive.

Some of Tarantino's worst instincts are on display in The Hateful Eight, which -- damnit! -- could've been so great.

A gloriously unhinged, wildly unpredictable, yet subtly existential piece of work.

It's fascinating to watch -- not once was I bored -- and superior to most other offerings on the big screen at the moment.

It's surely the bleakest film of Tarantino's career, pronouncing a bitter verdict not only on America's past, but its present and future as well.

A deeply conflicting version of fun.

It's everything you'd expect from this exasperatingly unruly writer-director: cinematically adventurous, generically self-conscious, entertainingly performed, editorially ill-disciplined.

Nobody does what Tarantino does, and that alone, in a world of copycats and sequels and rip-offs, makes him priceless.

"Hateful" isn't the word I would use. Wasteful sounds right - of our time and Tarantino's talents.

It's mannered, grandiose and self-indulgent, but in its own way absolutely expert. Aesthetic, even, if you like that.

As much as it wallows in the worst mankind has to offer (and has little of importance to say about those impulses), it still showcases Tarantino's skills with memorable characters and high-impact dialogue.

Tarantino. Unarguably a gifted filmmaker. Probably why no one said "enough."
Jan 7, 2016
What a shame the piece is so lacking in character and narrative coherence. What a shame so much of it is so gosh-darn boring.
Jan 7, 2016
As the pieces slot quickly into place, the investment you made in these people and their predicaments begins to pay off, big time.
Jan 7, 2016
Tarantino has returned to his first film's template - colourful characters, a single room, blood and betrayal - but this time in a framework that is deliberately designed for repeat viewing.

Playing a gun-control parlor game for 90 minutes without letting a single bullet loose is an intense and bravura direction to take for a Western, that most American genre where the 2nd Amendment rings loudest.

Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight is a lot of things. Boring, of course, isn't one of them.
