“In post-Civil War Wyoming, John “The Hangman” Ruth is escorting fugitive Daisy “The Prisoner” Domergue to Red Rock where the latter will face justice for murder. They encounter another bounty hunter named Major Marquis “The Bounty Hunter” Warren and Chris “The Sheriff” Mannix. A blizzard forces the four to take shelter at a stagecoach passover called Minnie’s Haberdashery where they encounter four more strangers; Bob “The Mexican” , Oswaldo “The Little Man” Mobray, Joe “The Cow Puncher” Gage, and ex-General Sanford “The Confederate” Smithers. Through betrayal and deception, the eight strangers soon learn that they may not make it to Red Rock after all.”
Bring me a Quentin Tarantino movie and you’ll have my attention. Bring me a Quentin Tarantino western and I’d already have a ticket if I could buy one. Yes, I’m thinking I might be a bit biased when it comes to The Hateful Eight so when I finally do see it and I’m screaming it’s great, an absolute cinematic masterpiece, maybe take it with a grain of salt. Who am I kidding, of course it’ll be great, you don’t need anyone to tell you that much, definitely not me.
Directed and written by Quentin Tarantino, The Hateful Eight stars Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Walton Goggins, Bruce Dern, Demian Bichir and Channing Tatum.
The Hateful Eight opens December 25th in select theaters in the US, before going wide January 8th next year.
