The Hateful Eight movie. I will never get bored with it. Each viewer has their favorite Tarantino movie. The hateful eight is mine (or actually one of the two).
The Hateful Eight – The Western I Deserve
I’m not a fan of Western movies. I admit that I watched some very good ones, but I think I am repelled by the old style of making this type of film. Tarantino has refreshed this genre to the limit. I don’t think it can be done better. The next stage would be matrix slowing down time or Marvel’s superpowers. Fortunately, Tarantiono didn’t go in that direction because the goal wasn’t to make a western that is breathless because of the great images. The goal was… dialogue. But let’s emphasize. If I had to judge a movie in terms of Western-style action, it would still be fast. The typical western scenes are great, daring and bloody.
The film itself has every element that we can imagine after saying the word „western”. Location, speaking style, emerging references to historical events in the US, weapons, clothing, equipment, human relationships. I could go on but it doesn’t make sense. It’s enough for you to trust me here when I say this movie is a full-fledged western.
Before I go into dialogue, I have to mention one thing. I know there are at least two groups of modern western audiences. The one who likes the style of Tarantio and the one who likes the style of Clint Eastwood (also a great director in my humble opinion). If I had to choose, I would follow the Tarantino style. Because it has something more to offer after all. Dialogues.
The Hateful Eight – Aghata Christie riddles
There is something about this book-like movie Aghata Christie. Lightness and mystery. And I encourage you to see what’s next. I have no objection to Tarantino. He is a great analyst of the history of cinema (and not only). He chooses the best and mixes in his own way. There are gems (almost always). He has made few films, but all of them are at least good (or at least in certain respects).
Back to the Hateful Eight. The film moves at the pace of a good book. We get acquainted with the first heroes, we are beginning to be entwined by a web of lies and secrets. First murder. Tension. Relations between the participants of the performance created by the mysterious absentee. Solution. Brutal. And I can watch this movie again …
The film The Hateful Eight – acting
The accumulation of such an epic quality of acting performed by many actors is extremely rare. Tarantino has what allows him to recover unrecoverable out of everyone. Each actor is set in a role that is perfect for him, and we, the audience, cannot imagine a different choice. It beggars description. It has to be missed.
The Hateful Eight movie – special effects, image, music
Tarantiono is in shape again. Beautiful landscapes. Transitions from large to small spaces. The image is used to emphasize the tension. Music is used to emphasize the tension. But … neither one nor the other interferes with the drinking of dialogues. They are the quintessence.
Of course, the filmed moments of the extermination of the heroes make guilty pleasure as much as possible. And of course they are great, long-awaited, but for me just in The hateful eight are in second place.
The Hateful Eight – want to watch it again in 2 years
I can watch this movie every six months. And so far I don’t know which is better: the first or the second half of the film.
The film The Hateful Eight – final grade
Great western, great acting, beautiful shots, music and sounds full of suspense. In a word: I recommend it!
reTraceX evaluates: I recommend
Explanation of ratings:
At the outset, I warn you that not every movie will have all the available ratings. There are simply fundamental assessments (the one that will always be), e.g. an assessment for a category. There are also ratings such as „willingness to watch the next episode”, which applies to series, so it is difficult to demand that it has its raison d’être with the rated full-length film.
- Category: rating the movie in its main category
- Main plot: assessment of the main story told / Side plots: e.g. flashbacks, side stories of characters
- Image, Music and Special Effects: These can be historical costumes or life on another planet
- Wanting to watch an episode: immediately after the previous one
- Willingness to come back in 2 years: would I like to see again someday / was it a pleasure to watch again
- Overall Impression: Without going into detail the overall reception.
