“Youu0026#39;d have to go back 80 years or so to the film adaptation of Sidney Kingsleyu0026#39;s Dead End to find a film where the set qualifies as a living participant of the action. The house in the adaption of the Eugene Ou0026#39;Neill classic Long Dayu0026#39;s Journey Into Night also qualifies here.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe action is set up when the stagecoach where bounty hunter Kurt Russell is taking his prisoner Jennifer Jason Leigh to the town of Red Rock to be hung. A couple of prairie hitchhikers also come on board another bounty hunter Samuel L. Jackson and Walton Goggins son of a former Confederate general who says heu0026#39;s the new sheriff in the town of Red Rock. Kurt Russell replete with full flowing beard and mustache is one suspicious man. He has those suspicions justified before the film is ended.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e80% of the action takes place on set of the 19th century bed and breakfast during the time of a nasty Wyoming winter and does the dialog crackle. If you think youu0026#39;re going to see a western the kind that John Ford or Howard Hawks or Henry Hathaway did back in the old days, then donu0026#39;t watch The Hateful Eight. Hateful is the operating word with these characters, thereu0026#39;s nothing really noble about any of them.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBesides the set of Minnieu0026#39;s Haberdashery to recommend it, Quentin Tarrantino selected a truly fine ensemble cast who play beautifully off each other. As the outlaw queen Jennifer Jason Leigh got a Best Supporting Actress nomination, but in my humble opinion she doesnu0026#39;t stand out any more than any of the rest of them. The Hateful Eight also earned Ennio Morricone an Oscar for the best musical score for 2015.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe Hateful Eight is a great western, but it ainu0026#39;t your grandpau0026#39;s kind of western.”
