I don't understand why people thought this would be a hit.
It's a three-hour movie taking place almost entirely in one room. Its pre-release buzz focused mostly on things only nostalgia buffs would get excited for: 70mm film format, an overture/intermission, a "roadshow" release. And the unique selling points are contradictory: The 70mm format is a treat for the senses! would be a great selling point...for a Western with breathtaking mountain vistas, not for a movie taking place in one room? Same goes for the three-hour run time: three hours might promise an epic adventure in the old Hollywood tradition...but three hours in one cramped room only promises cabin fever.
Basterds promised Brad Pitt killin' some Nazis. Django promised Jamie Foxx killin' some slaveowners. H8ful promised a long conversation in a small room about mutual ethnic/regional distrust, the intersection of race, gender, violence, and sexuality, and the legacy of slavery in America. Hell, that isn't an elevator pitch for an ultra-violent revenge movie; that's an elevator pitch for tonight's edition of The McLaughlin Group on PBS.
People assume that we'll watch any old shit from Tarantino. Even Tarantino knows it's not true any more - why do you think we heard so much about the 70mm meme? Did you hear any fuss about it when The Master came out?
it's just more of the same nigger dick sucking shit he has been doing since Jackie Brown and le homage paying - aka bluntly and obviously ripping off others' famous works.
Even the normies have caught up to that by now.
>One of the most engaging and fun movies of the year
Considering WARM BLACK DINGUS it never had a chance on /tv/.
Nevermind 4chan is too fucking stupid to understand that it shows the black, freed slave was a racist hypocrite who was just as bad as everyone else in the cabin, and the hillbilly sheriff is the closest thing to a moral centre the movie has. The entire fucking movie was about how people use ideologies and systems of rule and law to commit horrible acts of violence and no amount of self-justification changes that large portions are done out of sadism.
But no, one scene where Sam Jackson talks about his dick and /tv/ spills its spaghetti.
Daily reminder that this was better
H8ful 8 promised a Western whodunnit with lots of character tension and (a la 12 Angry Men or Reservoir Dogs) and violence. It delivered all of it.
My attention span has been burned out through many years of video games and internet browsing, so most 3 hour movies bore me now, unfortunately. However, this one kept me entertained throughout, that's all I can say.
Yeah there are a lot of mountain visuals in the film dude. He used a fucking for like every shot that takes place outside. Also, a lot of the scenes in the cabin are super widescreen. I'm not anywhere near an expert on film but I was excited to see Hateful Eight and it was good the 70mm was worth it.
I just thought it was a slow-paced movie with a stereotypically Tarantino explosion of violence that didn't say anything we haven't heard before.
The whole bj thing was Tarantino trying to get some controversy going. Instead, people outside of 4chin just awkwardly ignored.
>H8ful promised a long conversation in a small room about mutual ethnic/regional distrust, the intersection of race, gender, violence, and sexuality, and the legacy of slavery in America.
thanks for the synopsis anon i thought it was some kinda cowboy movie. this movie sounds great
>going to this extreme length to justify liking a cuck flick because 'muh Tarantino' did it
holy shit lol
this is almost as autistic as people defending most of David Lynch's trash with their 'angelic old hollywood' theories
stop injecting made up pretentious self-ideologies into fucking flicks you memer
It was a fun flick. I enjoyed watching it most of the time.
During the part where Samuel gets his dick sucked I yelled out "THIS IS SO PROGRESSIVE!"
Got a few laughs and a whole bunch of 'stfu's.
Only braindead autists and shitposters think that. The story was so blatantly obviously made up by the Samuel L jackson character to get rise out of the white dude, and the viewer is also invited to laugh at the absurdity of the situation.
>hurr durr I'm too retarded to understand film criticism
>hurr durr I'm stupid so everybody must be stupid like me
>hurr durr I'm going to call it a flick that'll show them
>SHUT UP I DON'T WANT TO DISCUSS MOVIES
please be bait this is what you sound like right now
The entire thing was a vehicle for Tarantino to exploit his 'anti-white-male SJW' bullshit, abuse some white folks on screen, and shooting the black guy in the dick was his fall back card in case anybody called him out on this.
The flick was garbage. Him filming some wallpaper scenes and Jesus Christ iconography, and interjecting Ennio Morricone, does not make this film any less than hot garbage.
It's devoid of any meaning, other than to trick you into sitting down for 3 hours, getting comfortable, and Tarantino exposing his fetish for you, and making you think about black men abusing white men on film.
The fact that he only narrates the sodomy scene, himself, putting emphasis on "white mouths black dicks" proves that this entire thing was to cuck people on Christmas morning.
He wanted people to think about cuckoldry, and he used this film as a vehicle to do so. Literally anybody who enjoyed this trash is a mindless lemming, and a cuck.
Take your 70mm wannabe-Malick wallpaper scenes and shove them right up your ass. Tarantino is a joke
slj tells the old dude how he raped and killed his son while the old dude masturbates to the captivating tale of black dinugses in white mouthes.
After slj kills the old redneck, tarrantino does a voice over about how big the black dingus was and how it made him hard.
Most Tarantino fans think this scene is great because it's really progressive and not cuck fiction at all.
while the idea of a new Eastwood (son) western is very appealing, these reviews don't look too promising my man
sam jackson wants to kill the old man, because the old man was a confederate general who killed a lot of black prisoners. SLJ knows though that if he just shoots him he'll be hanged for murder, so he makes up a story about how he raped and murdered the general's son to get the general to draw on him, so SLJ can legally shoot him and claim self defense.
Star Wars had so much hype it killed every other movie around it. The focus was entirely on it. The last time Tarantino had a movie coming out this time nothing else was out, so Django stood alone.
That's the reason I didn't see it. I'm just fucking sick and tired of movies at the moment after being bombarded with all that Star Wars shit, and hell still am.
>SLJ knows though that if he just shoots him he'll be hanged for murder, so he makes up a story about how he raped and murdered the general's son
It's too implausible and convenient for this to actually be a fabricated lie since BLACK DINGUS would have to know about the general's son's existence and his exact whereabouts when he was last seen/died.
In conclusion BLACK DINGUS actually DID kill the general's son after he sucked his dick which makes Tarantino the biggest cuck since Louis Cuck K.
>shot on 70mm film
>set mostly in a cabin
>Revenant is shot in digital
>so pretty that it made love to my eyes
Film fags btfo
Django made it abundantly clear how important Sally Menkin (Quentin's long time editor who died in a car crash after Inglorious) was. I ain't paying to see Tarantula masturbate all over me again.
Just go see it, I've gone twice just because another friend wanted to see it and there aren't any points at the movie where it loses your attention. Pretty fun movie with satisfying deaths. I saw it in a packed theater and basically everyone has having hoot at all the nigger'ing except for the old lady beside me who yelled "I didn't like it" when it finished. Unless of course you live in the States then watch it at home because you will probably get shot.
There's a real religious mysterious message in this film, that people don't seem to remember, or recognise.
It is a bit like Pulp Fiction in that regard, with the suitcase combination being 666.
Also this film is Tarantino's attempt of Jar Jaring his whole cinematic career.
I found this film similar to From Dusk Til Dawn tbqh familia
I noticed dat wings, what else is there wise one?
The obvious, I also felt that the journey to the cabin was like a test, it reminded me of the afterlife, the wagon was taking the devil to hell, and they kept picking up dead people along the way, similar to Dante's purgatory.
I think the characters were just symbolic for Tarantino's view on religion.
The Cruxification at the start made me invert the film, instead of a cold wilderness, and no life everywhere, I imagined Christ was alive and the world was too.
This is what the film is describing, what happens during/after the death of Christ, from Quentin's perspective, of course.
>The whole bj thing was Tarantino trying to get some controversy going.
Holy shit the cynicism on /tv/ has reached new fucking heights. Tarantino doesn't put sexual or violent scenes in his films to get controversy going, he does it because he's autistic.
He's not that kind of writer, anyone who has seen any interview with 3:17 knows that he hates controversy because it creates a conversation he doesn't want to have.
He wants to talk about the 70mm projection, not a controversial gay sex scene, which by the way obviously didn't happen. It's a lie made by Sam Jackson's character to piss off some white dude. Tarantino figured out what would piss off this character and he arrived at that idea, which obviously work because it pissed you closeted cucks off.
Fuck I am so sick of race discussions. both black and white people need to get over this shit it's pathetic. Fucking children, the both of you. I hate how fucking divisive you all are. yes I'm mad
he places a gun on the generals arm rest then told him he forced his son to suck him off in order for him to attempt to shoot him, it worked. so when he shot the general it was in self defense. it was likely all made up just to provoke the attack just like the lincoln letter was a forgery to get people to respect him.
I don't know if there was a certain hype going on about this movie when you went to go see it but I came in not really knowing what to expect. Frankly, as long as this movie was, I wish it was longer. This movie and its characters were gold.
>SLJ makes up story so he can kill confederate
Should top out around $60 mil domestically.
Still, not bad for a movie that is an atrocious piece of shit.
Obviously QT does really well with gore effects but that was literally the whole ending rather than a payoff with gore on the side or even anti climactic but fitting climax
anyone else feel this way? Two hours of dialogue up to and including the first man being shot was fucking great
>BLACK DINGUS would have to know about the general's son's existence and his exact whereabouts when he was last seen/died.
he would know this if he just straight up killed him you know
are you for real
>half of it has to be true so the other half is true too
Just got back from the cinema having watched this
>3 hour long Tarantino film
>Not a single shot of Donoghue's feet being licked by the Hangman.
but that's dumb, if an armed person provokes a conflict with fighting words and kills someone when they retaliate that's still considered murder, just like killing someone in a duel is murder.
Sounds more like a convenient excuse for Tarantino to include that scene in the film.
>They discuss that in the movie
not in the movie i watched. tarantulla mentions something like that in his voiceover but was too fascinated with captivating tales of a black dinguses in white mouthes to really care.
