Hateful Eight, Tarantino

Great few film weeks over the past fortnight. 

We saw Hateful Eight at Gold Class, which did two things. Validated our hate for the commercial cinemas. The food was subpar and when it’s served in the dark they reckon you don’t know what’s what. Well, guess what. Food is tasted, with or without light. And the drinks, come on. I’ll just stick to movies at home thanks. Netflix. Presto. Google movies or whatever.

But now for the movie. Absolutely brilliant Tarantino classic. Reminiscing of Resevoir Dogs, but with the new Django overlay. Loved the characters and loved Ennio Morricone’s soundtrack. I would love to see a live orchestra performance of this soundtrack. 

Also went back and watched Django which I had started and not finished a number of times. A feel good story, at the end of the day. With a few Aussies thrown in at the end for good measure.

I don’t know why I didn’t finish it last few times, as I almost got to the end (like why I first attempted the 1000 steps). Back a few years I started watching Dusk Till Dawn and falling asleep. I did this a handful of times. And only after then did I get to the vampire part to the tale. Never had a clue. Never knew it was a vampire story!! Brilliance.
