Audience Reviews for The Hateful Eight

    If you've read anything else I've written about Tarantino, you know I'm not right up there as one of his biggest fans. For one thing, I don't care for his sense of humor. I also don't care for his exuberant, almost juvenile use of violence. <p> I watched this movie because I'm a huge Kurt Russell fan. And you know what? I've not laughed that much at a movie in a good long while. I mean, I don't like to think that gore is the center of my humor universe, but the gory moments in this movie were often -- not always by any means -- hilarious. <p> The acting is terrific too. That's another thing you'll not see me say often about a Tarantino movie. Mostly, I believe, his movies find success not because of their acting or their scripts, but because people like Tarantino's artificially contrived time sequence shifts and his gore. Lots of gore. Well, sire, I loved the time sequence shift in this movie. It was appropriate and, well, timely. I've already talked about the gore. <p> True, there are enough truly tragic deaths in this movie to match many a tragic movie, but the overpowering strength of the humor in this movie wins the day. This doesn't mean I'm all of a sudden a big Tarantino fan. Interesting how he chooses to tell you up front what number movie this is he's made. It's like a brag. Either that, or it's a plea that he needs to make so you won't forget his prior work, perhaps.

    A great setting iat a snowy isolated trading post, shades of reservoir dogs seep through as we as we wonder who is a traitor (s) are Trying to free outlaw Daisy Domergue, which is re-enforced by the presence of Tim Roth. Involving with a few memorable characters , yet somewhat lacking in the prime crackling dialogue consistency that we expect from Tarantino. lengthy without becoming dull, and almost manages to be his first film without superfluous scenes until he added the sequence that showed what happened before the stagecoach arrived. Jennifer Jason Leigh is no stranger to demanding rolles, and here she is abused and bloodied throughout and still manages to unleash A tremendous all star cackle.

    It has a similar theatrical aspect to Reservoir Dogs, and although it lacks the punch of that film, it's still a cracking movie.

    Everything you would come to expect from Tarantino, just on a more confined scale. The original screen play and acting both amaze, it is always refreshing to see some of the banter and slang he comes up with. Yes it is super violent but once again the director makes it so we really don't care, the music fits perfect as well.
