The Hateful Eight

This film that almost wasn’t probably should have stayed that way. Now I do like Tarantino films, this one was honestly just a disappointment. At first the film looks like an actually decent western, however it spirals down from about halfway point becoming what we expect from this director, bloody and disgusting. It was such a weird juxtaposition that it ruins the film. I wanted to like this film, but I just couldn’t. As a western it’s terrible and the rest is just not worth watching.

Bottom Line (Warning Contains Spoilers)


This movie seemed to be a decent movie of bounty hunters trying to bring in their bounties. However half way through the film takes a disgusting and bloody turn. First Kurt Russell dies by being poisoned and cheesily vomiting out his guts. The worse part to me was the part when Samuel L. Jackson is shot in the junk with a shotgun. The rest of the film is filled with a lot of death and blood.  At first I thought Tarantino was becoming a classic director and then it returned to the ridiculous and absurd. It just isn’t up to snuff with other films.
