Academy Award-winning writer/director Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained, Inglorious Basterds, Pulp Fiction) is back to business with his latest offering “The Hateful Eight”. The best part is that this is a Western film with some of the finest actors in action. For those die-hard Tarantino fans, this will surely be an entertaining one with the trademark Tarantino style of filmmaking (perhaps his love for blood and gore, and of course, great dialogues).
What we can see from the trailer is that “The Hateful Eight” looks somewhat like a mixture of his first film “Reservoir Dogs” and “Django Unchained”. Tarantino does not disappoint movie buffs very often, with an average Rotten Tomatoes scoring of over 85 percent. The only film which was not appreciated much is the 2007-released “Death Proof”.
The film features some of the finest actors including Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Bruce Dern. Another interesting fact about the new film is that it is the first movie shot in 70mm Ultra Panavision since “Khartoum” in 1966.

“The Hateful Eight” Movie Synopsis
Set after the end of the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. Bounty hunter John Ruth and his fugitive Daisy Domergue race towards the town of Red Rock, where Ruth will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter Major Marquis Warren, a former Union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix, a renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren, and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover. When they arrive, they are greeted by four unfamiliar faces: Bob, who takes care of Minnie’s in the owner’s absence; Oswaldo Mobray, the hangman of Red Rock; cow-puncher Joe Gage; and Confederate General Sanford Smithers. As the storm overtakes the mountainside, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…
