The Hateful Eight features ten characters interacting with one another, and the moral distinctions among them are not always sharply etched. This raises the question, which of the ten constitute the hateful eight?

Tarantino's films can only really be compared to each other, and the Hateful Eight serves as an excellent progress report for how Tarantino has and hasn't evolved as a filmmaker.

The Hateful Eight: Quentin Tarantino's Intriguing But Bloated Latest Film

Michael Russnow | Posted 12.23.2015 | Entertainment

For me, The Hateful Eight was a mixed bag. The performances are first-rate, though the music was overly heavy at times and it occasionally worked against what was happening by overpowering it to make it appear that more was happening than actually was.

Amy Adams as Margaret is excellent. Christoph Waltz's over-the-top portrayal of Walter -- who, by many accounts was truly over-the-top -- can be a bit distracting. At any rate, it's an interesting exploration of how the "little hobo kids" became a household must-have.

I'll be the first person in a dogfight to throw down for equal justice and constitutional rights under the law for all people. But I'm afraid this latest example of alleged racism and discrimination by the LAPD plays more as a reenactment of the boy, or in this case, girl who cried wolf.

Hollywood movies are notoriously good at reducing complex problems to isolated, emotional experiences. The happy endings of films on racial themes reflect Americans' collective investment in concluding a conversation that has barely begun.

Marshall Fine

In one sense, actor Bruce Dern is an interviewer's dream: He's pithy, quotable and voluble. In another sense, Dern is an interviewer's nightmare: You ask one question and never get the chance to ask another, because he's got so much to say.

Looking away has become a national pastime -- from the poor, the sick, and the civilians killed by war and drones. It is unclear to me what kinds of representations of suffering can always escape condemnation as sentimental, or manipulative, or "suffering porn."

After the climactic revenge scene and peaceful coda, the credits roll, and the house lights come up. The End. In real life though, we rarely see a such clear endings, and we should know better than to believe a sign that declares "Mission Accomplished."
