The newest film by Quentin Tarintino was a little bit more arty than usual and went with the ‘snow cowboy’ approach. Starring Samuel Jackson (Avengers Assemble, Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, Pulp Fiction), Kurt Russell (The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China), Channing Tatum (Hail, Caesar, Jupiter Ascending), This film had the best casting I have seen in a very long time.
When a blizzard starts and John Ruth needs to get shelter and get his prize (Daisy Domergue) to a close town called Red Rock for a bounty, he stumbles into fello bounty hunter Major Marquis Warren and the future Sherriff of Red Rock. They take shelter in a nearby cabin named Minnie’s Haberdashery. When the enhabitants or the haberdashery are met, they don’t seem to bad. Soon they turn a new leaf.
While it starts off fairly non-violent, it takes a dark turn half way and becomes overly gory.
It takes place in the same universe as Django Unchained.
Some of the scores from this film were incomplete from ‘the Thing’.
In the original script Mexican Bob was French.
This is Tarantino’s 8th film. Hence the ‘hateful EIGHT’.
This is his sixth collaboration with Samuel. L. Jackson.
