The Hateful Eight

Starring: Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh
Directed by: Quentin Tarantino (“Django Unchained”)
Written by: Quentin Tarantino (“Pulp Fiction”)

Three years after Quentin Tarantino’s Oscar-winning “Django Unchained” opened on Christmas Day 2012, the controversial filmmaker delivers another Western bloodbath for fans to eat up this holiday season, this time a 3-hour epic (including prologue and intermission) set in post-Civil War Wyoming. With a strong blizzard bearing down, two bounty hunters, Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson) and John Ruth (Kurt Russell), the latter chained to fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh), find shelter in a local haberdashery where they must keep their eyes on a motley crew of strangers with unknown intentions. As with most of Tarantino’s creations, the film is full of smartly written dialogue and absurd violence. Different is the stage play quality it exhibits since most takes place in a single location. This might be second-tier Tarantino, but there’s plenty to enjoy, especially composer Ennio Morricone’s extraordinary score.
