Pointless Nonsense

Posted in movies by Bill on January 18, 2016

hateful8The Hateful Eight is Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie, and it’s quite good, but also helps increase my distaste for Tarantino personally. As usual, he makes sure to remind us that it’s his movie. In this case, by narrating portions of it himself. And in interviews, he states that one of the influences on the film is Reservoir Dogs, which he himself wrote and directed, and I find an incredibly douchey thing to say. It is similar to Reservoir Dogs in a lot of ways (Michael Madsen and Tim Roth among them), but why would you declare yourself to be one of your influences?

Anyway, Reservoir Dogs remains my favorite of his movies, so the similarities are pleasing. A lot of long monologues, characters stuck together, unsure who can be trusted, and eventually a whole lot of blood. The western genre doesn’t appeal to me as much as the neo-noir, but it was still good.
