Opinions On The Internet

Shockingly to me, The Hateful Eight has opened here in lurvely South Korea.  And for the most part, I liked it.  Yes, it’s incredibly problematic in ways that only Quentin Tarantino can be (especially with regards to the practically cartoon-ish violence against the female lead).  But it works as a  Jacobean Western (!) that basically takes place in one room, reminiscent of Reservoir Dogs.

And the ending worked for me.  It was kind of brilliant, really.  IMO, it’s the most overtly political statement he’s ever made in a film.

So I liked it (after hating Django) but I don’t bother recommending Tarantino to anybody.  By this point you should know what you’re getting into.

What is objectively great about the film?  The soundtrack.  Morricone’s score is great, as are Q.T.’s usual interesting oddball choices.
