    Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight



    In THE HATEFUL EIGHT, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…

    I was excited for a new teaser...until I saw that it was the same teaser that leaked last year.

    I want to see this in a 70mm screen. For once in my life, I want to see a film in 70mm.

    Does that mean this will be the first Tarantino movie with a full original score?? Django Unchained had the first song recorded specifically for a Tarantino movie, correct?

    I read him saying that he doesn't go for original scores because what if they do all that work and he doesn't like it? He would have wasted their time and his own, so he used songs he knew and enjoyed.

    Guess he changed his mind....

    I think it's more that Morricone would be one exception to that, since a lot of QT's recent movies have flat out used his music anyway.

    I'm very excited for this, I don't think Morricone has done an American film since ​Mission To Mars.

    Do it.
    It was worth it to see Jurassic World (shot in 65mm) on one of those screens when i was in denver last month. We don't have one in the panhandle.

    I am fucking thrilled about new tarantino myself.

    So this, Star Wars, and Paranormal Activity V-those are the ones i want to at least see on imax.
    PLUS, we have Twin Peaks and X Files coming soon to the small screen. I'm excited.

    Edit: Oh, @thevoid99 , i think i was confused about the 70mm FILM thing

    The screener has leaked. I'll be seeing this when it comes out here, but this is tempting for a Christmas Eve viewing.

    Well, I'm a sucker. Watched it last night lol. Was pretty good, typical Tarantino though...it's almost as if he's hemmed in by his own Tarantinoisms. That's a word now. Tonight, The Revenant!

    The theater up the street from me is (I believe) the only theater in Arizona playing it in 70mm. They have a 7:00 showing tonight and I have to admit I'm tempted to go. If not tonight then definitely this weekend.

    I hope to see it this weekend as this might be the only time I will ever see a 70mm screening in my lifetime. I've been to a roadshow screening in 2009 for Che which is an experience that I will never forget. I hope to have something that is the same.

    Had full intentions of going to see the film tonight at the only theatre in town playing it for the 6pm show. As of 4pm it was sold out... so instead, streamed the screener from the comfort of my own home. Meh, shoot me... I tired to pay for it, had no other choice, lol.

    Great film from Tarantino as usual. Easily one of the better films of the year.

    It was pretty good. Beautiful visually. Some parts ran a little long but much better than Django, which I didn't like at all. Jennifer Jason Leigh killed it.

    I thought it started off awfully, but it got a lot better after about 45 minutes in. I think I preferred Django, if I'm being honest.

    Spoiler: "Black dicks in white mouths" had me HOWLING.

    went to the Roadshow viewing tonight at Cinema East in the East Village. It was alot of fun. First of all this part. movie theatre they screened it in was just beautiful. Big, multi-level, old-school theatre with a huge screen. The 70mm stuff really came through really well with the Wyoming landscape shots of course, but even some of the interior stuff was great with it b/c more was in the frame than you'd typically get in a closer shot. The stage coach interior shots for example were just bigger & wider than they'd be normally.

    Cool extras you get as part of the Roadshow:

    "playbill" guide to the movie, with nice full-color shots from the movie, cast & background info on everything

    musical prelude right before the actual movie starts, with the movie's main theme

    15 minute intermission

    nothing mindblowing, but definitely sets the tone and made everything more enjoyable. Made it feel like an event.

    As far as the movie...it's Tarantino people. If you like his style of dialogue and over the top bloody violence, then you'll almost certainly like this. Sure it could be considered slow at times, but I love how he writes dialogue and can listen to his characters interact all day long. So I loved it. The theatre was laughing hard throughout. Lots of humor.

    I loved the mystery and wondering what was going to happen. I could see this one not having the same impact upon repeated viewings, but it sure was good first go round.
