I have been known to enjoy Tarantino stories and how he goes about telling them. Often these stories include witty and sharp dialogue which is instantly quotable and lingers in our minds vividly. Unfortunately this story has nothing memorable, dialogue is cheap and the characters are not intriguing enough. The bloodshed should be cathartic and liberating rather than a gimmick to impress.
This movie was actually pretty good, there was a lot of strong dialogue which I actually enjoyed throughout the film. However this was another Tarantino movie where his favorite word to use is the N-WORD which was kind of bothersome throughout the film. The reason I give this a three and not a anything more is because of that buzz word and because of the length of the film. It was super long.. overall it was 7.5
Con The Hateful Eight si ha come la sensazione che Tarantino abbia realizzato il suo Cavallo di Torino: opere definitive, come massima (es)tensione della poetica di ciascun autore, in cui l'Immagine implode e la catarsi viene interiorizzata, poiché fuori(campo) non (r)esiste più alcuna possibilità di salvezza, di liberazione. Il film più maturo ed autoriale di Tarantino. Un punto d'arrivo.
Tarantino's most Godardian film. A grotesque, blackly comic study on violence & morality, which seems to be using fiction to draw disquieting parallels to situations occurring in the modern world. Full of lengthy political discussion, digressions & deconstructions, even the decision to shoot 70mm, despite taking place almost entirely in a log-cabin, evokes Godard's practice of shooting domestic drama in Cinemascope.
Tarantino compone un suspenso como nadie más; lo intrigante es lo que viene, este ingreso a la américa profunda del wild west (Django ya era un giro hacia esa dirección), al género western revestido de toda la modernidad que él y sólo él es capaz de consumar en su violencia y su humor.
A film of five stars before intermission into a film of 2 and a half stars after intermission. Some magical tension and dialogue, some stunning cinematography, and some defacing homage that could have been handled with less ejaculation (actually thats EJACULATION!). Still magnificent fun.
The darkest Tarantino movie. It has an element of horror and gore to it, the way the blood is presented here. All of his other movies make one way or another the violence caricaturistic or funny. Here I felt the violence very unpleasant, uncomfortable... which is not a critic, I just noticed a change there. The hanging of Daisy looks more like a horror movie to me than anything else. Great movie, great storytelling.
