Black dicks in white mouths.
Now that I have your attention, what did you really think of this movie? I thought it was very engaging and entertaining, but I don't know if it really added up to much and the violence was gratuitous even by Tarantino's standards. I liked that it felt more intimate and theatrical, which made the decision to film it in 70mm all the more confusing.
>everyone always complains/mentions the violence as being too gratuitous
Maybe it's because I'm American, but I really didn't see anything gross or over-the-top about it.
I dunno, maybe I'm just getting more sensitive to this stuff as I get older, but the Mexican getting his face blown off seemed a bit much.
I'm with you broski, but maybe it's because we play FPS games. Do you play violent games too?
Do you play violent video games? The Mexican's head explosion was just like Unreal Tournament.
kinda underwhelming plot, unsatisfying ending, almost completely unlikable characters, visuals were not really that special, the violence was typical Tarantino so that was nice.
Really all around just an unremarkable movie, nothing special as far as westerns go, and looks really weak compared to Django. Its not Tarantinos best film, or his best western. It isnt even the best western with Kurt Russel of 2015

The Revenant (fuck you people saying shit like meme cinematography. you are the reason there are 4 transformers movies) > Bone Tomahawk > Hateful Eight
I'm a big fan of the violent video games.
I was definitely sad when Demián Bichir died. I thought he was great in Machete Kills, and absolutely love his voice/accent. Oh well, I hope he continues to get work with Tarantula and Rodriguez since he's great.
if you think of the characters as 4chan posters, and assuming you enjoy the time you spend on 4chan, the characters are hilarious and awesome.
Obviously they are Hateful people, not very nice and generally mean spirited.
the violence was gratuitous even by Tarantino's standards.
I don't think it was particularly bad by his standard but the music that played during the hanging scene was particularly jarring and made it feel like it was worse than it really was.
The Revenant was fucking terrible. Hateful Eight was slightly less terrible, if only for Goggins performance. I'm looking forward to Bone Tomahawk but haven't gotten a chance to watch it yet.
Out here, in glorious ex-Soviet country, we have the expression "stupid american movie". Many Hollywood movies arent called that, but this one fits right in. Its how I feel about it. A stupid american movie.
I'm not sure it was. I think it was more trying to be wacky and fun in it's darkness but it came off (to me at least) too strong. That said if he was going for that then it was a very good piece of music.
Gotta throw Waltz in there somehow I guess. I have a feeling the role of the Hangman (Tim Roth's version, not Kurt) was originally written for Waltz but he had prior commitments.
Yeah, I giggled at the silliness of the narration.
Also giggled at the silliness of Sam Jackson's slow-mo "you aren't seriously considering that deal are you" or whatever he says.
Goggins and Jason Leigh saved the movie for me. Like Tarantino it's fun to watch, but unlike a lot of his other movies it ends up being unsatisfying due to its unoriginality.
Also I really felt zero emotional connection to anyone other than Zoe Bell and Tarantino gave her a cold-blooded death just as a fuck you to us. The jerk.
