Three sentence movie reviews: The Hateful Eight

 In Channing Tatum, Three Sentence Movie Reviews


There are things I like* and don’t like** about Mr. Tarantino.  I was excited to see this movie in 70mm UltraPanavision and for the first two-thirds I was reconsidering my anti-Tarantino stance, because everything was humming along nicely.  But after intermission, I was reminded exactly why I don’t like him and the film stopped working for me.

Cost: $15.00 (Roadshow pricing, completely worth it.)
Where watched: Hollywood Theater with a bunch of other 70mm/Tarantino fans.  (Mini review of Roadshow production: The Overture was fabulous.  During the movie, it was weird, but fun, to have to look back and forth across the screen to see everything.  I was surprised there wasn’t an “Intermission” title card during the intermission.  Overall, really fun, despite my dislike of one-third of the movie.)

*His commitment to the magic and mystique of movies, his characters and dialogue, his humor, the fact that his movies have awesome soundtracks.
**I think his movies (at least the ones I’ve seen) are incredibly slow.  Also, I don’t watch his films because the level of violence disturbs me, I don’t think it’s necessary, and I would prefer to go through life without those images in my brain.

    Ohhh, I kept trying to figure out why you went to see this film when I know you don’t like Tarantino. Totally forgot that Channing Tatum is in it. Was his performance good, at least?

      It was actually the 70mm Roadshow that I was interested in, though my love for CT means I was going to have to watch it anyway. So why not the Roadshow version?

      He was fine. He was in it for probably 7 minutes out of 180 and by the time he appears I was all wrapped up in the yucky Tarantino blanket of overwhelm, so it’s a little hazy. He spoke French though. That was fun.
