The Hateful Eight


What I love about Tarantino is that, despite his love for gratuitous blood and gore and overtly racist—and this time misogynistic—dialogue, he’s a subversive genius. It’s like he’s going around violently flipping tables (ALL THE REVENGE) in order to reveal the larger issue hidden underneath (slavery in Django Unchained is the most obvious example), but his style of filmmaking is so loud and in-your-face the the issue uncovered by the table flipping goes largely unnoticed until long after the carnage has been dealt with.
If you can stomach hearing the cartilage break in Daisy’s nose, projectile blood-vomit, and watching a head (and a few other body parts) explode, I recommend you sit through The Hateful Eight to learn a thing or two.

  1. I’m not a huge fan of Westerns, but I really want to see this. Unfortunately I’m number 22on the hold love at my library.😕

    1. Let me know what you think when you do!

      1. I definitely will Tori. It’s funny too, because the only Quentin Tarantino films I’ve watched is the Kill Bill trilogy. They’re on Netflix so one snowy Saturday last winter I started watching the first one (mainly out of curiosity) and before I knew it I was hooked! I watched all three movies that weekend. I still need to catch up on his others. Especially Django, and Pulp Fiction.

Don’t be afraid. I won’t smite you. Probably.
