Not bad ... not not good, either.

A frustrating film to watch. Having seen the trailer, I was expecting a modern idea of those, fairly, simplistic spaghetti-western films of the past: solid, broad plots, but gritty, and a fun watch. What we have here is a film that is trying to be allll sorts of Western film; so we have the expansive vistas, then we have the slow-burn, brooding moments, the cheesy scenery-chewing bits, and, finally, blood and guts all over the place.
Now, this is not to say that you can't have any of that in a Western, but to have it all in one is a little too rich for me.
It's okay, but forgettable. A pity, because you can pick out a number of scenes from Jackson and Russell and Leigh, but they are lost in the soup of the remaining film.

I read the reviews about this movie which in general were not all brilliant but because it was a Tarantino film with a strong cast I decided to watch it. I was not disappointed. The film was outstanding. It was the perfect mix of tragedy and comedy with some very violent parts which in the context were akin to the violence seen on cartoons such as Tom and Jerry. I laughed at some scenes and cringed at others. This film held my interest from beginning to end and I would recommend it to all who enjoy excellent cinematography and dialogue. Pay no attention to reviewers who say it was too long, it was in my opinion another Tarantino masterpiece.

One of my favourite films

I've watched this so many times now I feel obliged to write a review. The acting is great, with an interesting story, and a great ambience with the storm constantly raging outside, that it's a joy to re-watch to pick up the minor details. As with all Tarantino films you must be prepared for some violence, but at no point does it ever become the main focus of the story.

Walter Goggins, Samuel L Jackson, Kurt Russell and Jennifer Jason-Leigh do the most acting, and I particularly liked Jennifer Jason-Leigh's performance. I hadn't heard of her since "Single white female" about 30 years ago, but Tarantino has a great gift of finding underappreciated actors and capitalising on their talents. I hope this leads to more work for her.

To think this film almost wasn't made - I'm so glad Tarantino changed his mind.

It got worse as it went along
Verified purchase
This began reasonably enough, but the plot and characters became less and less plausible as time went by. And, oh boy, did it take a long time to go by. This film was about an hour and a quarter too long. It just dragged and dragged, with nothing very interesting happening. It was extremely disappointing, given the quality of the cast. Some of the dialogue was anachronistic - I'm pretty sure nobody used the phrase 'window of opportunity' back in the 1800s. The Hateful Eight was a good title for this film. Every character was hateful, so much so that I couldn't care less about any of them. They all got what they deserved.

Bang bang kill kill

Yet another gore fest from the Q man... but still as entertaining as his other 7 flicks.
And I'd wager that the build to, and eventual kill scenes would not be as 'tongue-in-cheek if they were not accompanied by his usual excellent use of musical scores... whether by archive songs, or composed from his long time friend, Ennui Morricone!
Cowboy/Western movies like this (man flicks😁), once I'm heavily invested in it, make me wanna speak the way they did back in the day, as it has a character all of it's own, and makes even the plainest of folk sound too cool for school, when they wrap their tongue around the mono/dialogue!, with structured sentencess, and mighty n mean insults. 😎
I also love (whilst watching this on my tablet) all the info and trivia in the side frame, telling me about the how's, who's, why's and wherefore's of the making of this film.
For now, I'll leave it for a day or so, them I will watch this again, ... and even knowing the few twists in it, as well as the inevitable ending, I know it's another one of the Q-man's features I will enjoy to the full... especially in theatre surround sound!

How The Mighty Are Conspicuously Declined
Verified purchase
Depp. Moss. Hirst. Tarantino. Jiang Zemin. Oasis.

The 90s made their mark and Reservoir Dogs (the ear sadism, soundtrack, blood and intensity) and Pulp Fiction (the soundtrack, humour, blood, eclecticism and - oh I forgot to mention:

Thurman.

)

Made QT the hottest, coolest cinematic property of the decade, sans argument.

He was original, daring and struck his own tone.

But Time is cruel, and inevitably, even crueller than the baddies he serves up in this tedious bowl of guts and ennui.

This may be a "Tarantino film" in more than name alone but if so, I missed it. The soundtrack is mundane where it isn't simply bereft. The stage setting invites unflattering comparison with another, better and crueller though less bloody 90s phenomenon, Glengarry Glen Ross. (QT: that bit of it - the setting, the stagey bit, the actual production and direction bit, was already done exponentially better by someone else; that never used to be you.)

Another Tarantino masterstroke used to be casting. And it's nice to see an old master revisiting his early hits (smoke me another Jackson; play Madsen for me; grate that Roth). But having JJ Leigh ( . . ?) do impressions of Christopher Walken in Sleepy Hollow - there go the 90s again - was eye-catchingly bizarre.

Perhaps we are supposed to view these sorts of things as self-referential or nostalgic to the point where we as an audience gush with pleasure at the invitation?

No more, QT; it's been done. Already. By you! And what genius you might have, or have had, clearly reached its apogee in the last decade of the last century. The trends you set in the 90s have both run their course and been absorbed; taken up.

Like the souls in this picture: so have you.

Nowadays there are better things to watch.

(PS: do let me know either when you think Kill Bill only ever deserved to be one, already declining film, or when you can count to nine.)

Far better than expected

Heard a lot of bad things before watching this so was a bit apprehensive at first to spend the near 3 hours watching it, but i am glad i did, it is a slow burner at there are stages of the film that feel like they are repeating themselves but what i found is like most Tarantino film you have to pay attention to the background for hints and almost play detective looking at were the plot is going i must admit, unlike most generic Hollywood films this one keeps you guessing up to the reveal, very bloody as per any Tarantino film but i would defo watch again

Worth watching, but no Reservoir Dogs
Verified purchase
I keep having certain expectations of Tarantino films, and he keeps failing to live up to them. My fault, my idea about what he's doing is obviously askew. But it does mean that this like most Tatantino films, was very good but somehow disappointing.

It's a decent enough story and Walton Goggins, SLJ, Kurt Russel and JJL are thoroughly entertaining, but it's not as good as Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs promised us for future Tarantino films.

But it's certainly worth a watch and if you like Tarantino or any of those actors I mentioned, you're gonna do fine with this.
