The Hateful Eight Movie Review 

​While racing toward the town of Red Rock in post-Civil War Wyoming, bounty hunter John “The Hangman” Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive prisoner (Jennifer Jason Leigh) encounter another bounty hunter (Samuel L. Jackson) and a man who claims to be a sheriff. Hoping to find shelter from a blizzard, the group travels to a stagecoach stopover located on a mountain pass. Greeted there by four strangers, the eight travelers soon learn that they may not make it to their destination after all.
Quentin Tarantino’s movies are not for everyone. You either love ’em or hate ’em. Personally, I don’t hate ’em but I don’t consider myself to be a huge fan of his work. 
I expected The Hateful Eight to be an interesting western with that classic Tarantino twist and that’s exactly what it is.
Samuel L. Jackson and Kurt Russell both give strong and awesome performances. The story is very well written but it’s mostly dialogue driven. I believe Tarantino is known for having really interesting dialogue in his movies. This one is no exception.
Of course, no Tarantino movie would be complete without a messy ending. I’ll spare you the gory details but it does wrap everything up nicely. My only complaint is that the run time is just a bit too long but it at least allows each character to explain who they are and what their motivation is.
If you’re up for watching a western movie with a little bit of mystery and hyper realistic violence then I recommend watching The Hateful Eight.
On a scale of 1 tamale to 10 tamales I give it 8 tasty tamales! 😎
