The Hateful Eight, 2015 - ★★★★

The Hateful Eight starts very slowly and although there are some great early moments it is also incredibly boring. I'll offer the disclaimer that I'm full of cold so perhaps wasn't in the best state to see the film but I did find myself practically nodding off at points which is something I never thought I'd say about a QT film.

Fortunately things pick up a lot from Chapter 3 and continue to improve through the remainder of the film. The crudity and gore feels immature especially in contrast to some of the more beautiful scenes. In a way it's a shame that Tarantino is so obsessed with cinema because so much of his work would be better suited to the HBO/Netflix world of television.
