Broadsheet Trailer Park: The Hateful Eight

at

The-Hateful-Eight

 

What you may need to know:

1. A group of outlaws are left stranded by a blizzard in post-Civil War Wyoming.

2. Quentin Tarantino’s second western in a row. He’s supposed to be retiring after another two movies, but he does tend to talk himself up.

3. A draft of this script was leaked back in January 2014. Tarantino shelved production and filed a lawsuit against Gawker. He shut their butts down.

4.
This is the sixth collaboration between Tarantino and Samuel L. Jackson.

5.
No Christoph Waltz? Shame.

6.
Broadsheet prognosis: There will be blood. And lots of bad-tempered junket interviews.

Release Date: January 8, 2016.

    Never quite hit the heights of Pulp Fiction/Resevoir Dogs again as he veered off into his fanboy film fantasies (i.e. Westerns/ Martial Arts/War) but Tarantino is always good for a solid seven/eight out of ten film.

    Inglorious Basterds standing up there above the recent crowd and Death Proof well below!

      I adored Inglorious Basterds. Everyone I know hated it but I thought it was tremendous. That opening scene. Yesssss.

        I loved the opening scene too.

        But then it got so cartoonish it was like a seven year old Tarantino smashing his Action Men at each other going KABOOM!
