Highly Suspect Reviews: The Hateful Eight

Tarantino is back with another western….or is it The Thing? Shades of The Thing anyway as Kurt Russell is looking kinda shaggy as he and the rest of the cast experience paranoia in a small enclosed space with an impassible winter storm outside. He is joined in his snow covered retreat by Sam Jackson, Jennifer Jason-Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demián Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Bruce Dern. Not a nice one among ’em. But Tarantino seems to have made a nice movie…maybe one of the best in his career? Ok, Chris, Richard and Herman don’t agree on this one at all, but you gotta hear the deets.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

    Kurt Russell standing up for gun rights and schooling the haters on gun rights is great!

    The Music was fantastic! The opening shot is fucking awesome! the first hour in the coach is great but it all goes a bit daft when we get to the cabin and Tim Roth doing Terry fucking Thomas and Michael Madson looking like a big Tommy Wiseau in a cowboy costume. Jennifer Jason Lee is the standout performance in all this, absolutely brilliant and impossible to take your eyes off her and the great Kurt Russel. The ‘N’ bomb really is a pain in the arse with QT now, it just takes me out of the experience because it does feel juvenile. So not the ‘Masterpiece’ the reviews are claiming but it’s the best QT i’ve seen since the first Kill Bill
