I just finished watching Quentin Tarantino's latest film, Hateful Eight. This movie was thoroughly entertaining for a number of reasons. The first is the cast of the movie was a pleasure to watch go to work. It is impossible to take your eyes off of Samuel L. Jackson's character, while Kurt Russel, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Walton Goggins are equally as captivating. Another reason is for this movie's fun is its setting. Most of the film takes place on a mountain in Wyoming during the dead of winter a few years after the Civil War. This makes for beautiful shots of the landscape, and great accents with great costumes. The part of this movie which achieved the most accolades is the music and score. Some examples are the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score and Academy Award for Best Original Music Score. Hateful Eight is another great installment to Tarantino's collection of amazing films. I give this film a 9/10 for great casting, setting, and music.
