There aren’t many directors like Quentin Tarantino. He burst onto the scene in the 1990s with a pair of unprecedented features, carried on through into the 2000s with bold and visually impressive films that looked to build upon his fanboy cinephilia, and is now making the sort of grand, American epics (in the proper sense of that word) you’d expect of a director of this talent approaching his mid-50s.
And now The Hateful Eight has finally dropped. After years of script leaks, stage readings and standard Quentin Tarantino stunt-pulling, the film has arrived in theatres; complete, in some, with an overture and an intermission and shown in “glorious” (the now-standard term) 70mm celluloid where possible.

Quentin Tarantino is a director unlike any other, and it certainly shows when you go see one of his movies.

Here's what the actor had to say about the first rule, and what will happen if this rule is broken.
"There are two things you're not allowed to do. One is fall asleep on set, and the other is bring a cell phone on. If you fall asleep on set, the camera crew are ready for you. They've got Big Jerry in a bag. Big Jerry »
What jumps to mind when you hear the phrase "Quentin Tarantino movie"? Hyperviolence? A bunch of different B-movies pastiched into something new? A lot of dialogue with a lot of bad language? That one "F" word in particular? Any of those could be right, but there's another thing many of Tarantino's movies have in common: a big, meaty role for an actor who's maybe in need of a career boost. In the case of the Tarantino movie currently in theaters, The Hateful Eight, the role is that of Daisy Domergue, a wily, foul-mouthed criminal played by Jennifer Jason Leigh. Now Leigh hasn't been without work. »
