The Hateful Eight (2015)
Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery, Western
This is an alright film and I do like the fact that it’s Quentin Tarantino’s eighth film 🙂 . The story has a Western feel to it but without the overacting, dramatic scenery and those “moments” you only see in the classic Westerns. This film follows more the new type of Western that is more gritty, foul mouthed and “deep” trying to make the audience think 😛 . I fairly enjoyed this film and I can’t say I was bored (captivated enough to watch till the end) and the narrative was okay. What I loved about this film was that it was sectioned off into chapters 😀 . My favourite chapter had to be Chapter 5 as this was the best part of the narrative. It was when the “Who Dunnit?” feel to the story finally and truly connected giving the reason why everyone is there. I did like the set up before this chapter and interactions of the characters though I did feel like something was missing. I liked the background music and it had a good cast. The story is long winded and aside from Chapter 5 the rest are either too offensive for the easily offended or mediocre. The typical too much blood (worse injuries than should have) of Tarantino isn’t actually the worse he has ever done and doesn’t take away too much from the narrative (doesn’t stop the flow). An alright film that I might recommend but not the best in the world. Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 2.5 Stars out of 5!
