    I'm starting a new thread as the previous was unavailable.

    "The Hateful Eight" by Quentin Tarantino (2015). It stars Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demián Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Bruce Dern.

    Has anybody here seen it?

    I am a Tarentino fan, and I've seen most of his stuff back to Reservoir Dogs (I did miss the last one due to the pandemic, I hope to catch it when it comes to Netflix). The Hateful Eight is classic Tarentino and is just as enjoyable as all the others.

    When I started watching, I wasn't aware it was a Tarantino production - the opening scene reminded me of Fargo by The Coen brothers. Great acting, clever story which was built on violence, a bit much for me.

    Violence is a key part of any Tarentino film.

    I like his clever dialogue, yes.

    And it was Django that made me a DiCaprio fan.

    Always liked Kurt Russell, glad to see him in The Hateful Eight.

    No, I've never seen this. I'll have to come back to this when I have more time. He seems young here, 1987 was 7 years before Pulp Fiction. Still, this is classic Tarentino.

    It’s a great movie but if you don’t like Tarantino or violence then you’re not going to like it. Some great actors though, interesting John travolta was never used again, Or Bruce Willis, maybe they were asked and didn't want to. Tarantino likes to use the same actors, Christoph Waltz was great in Danjo Unchained and inglorious basterds.

    It’s a thread worthy for itself, the best Tarantino movie, imo there’s a group of 4 or 5 at the top that you can’t really separate.

    It’s worth a watch, feels like it’s missing some scenes, or they were cut short but it’s a nice insight into early Tarantino.

    Travolta and Willis are both great actors, not always used to their full potential.

    Yesterday I watched for the second time a maybe not so well known movie - 'Cop Land' a 1997 American neo-noir crime drama film written and directed by James Mangold, and starring Sylvester Stallone, Harvey Keitel, Ray Liotta, and Robert De Niro. The supporting cast features Peter Berg, Janeane Garofalo, Edie Falco, Robert Patrick, Michael Rapaport, Annabella Sciorra, Cathy Moriarty, Arthur Nascarella, and John Spencer.
    The big surprise is Stallone - his understated performance was praised by critics and he received the Best Actor award at the Stockholm International Film Festival.

    I've only just seen the advert for Fargo, and It's now on my list of things to watch as a series, and if I can get it on Netflix I'll have a look for the Hateful Eight.

    Snow Piercer is quite an interesting series, quite addictive once you start.

    Thanks for the ideas :-)

    I have watched Fargo as movie with fine acting by Frances McDormand, Peter Stormare, William H Macey, Steve Buscemi and many others. It's a great film.
