Storyline

Some time after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. Bounty hunter John Ruth and his fugitive captive Daisy Domergue race towards the town of Red Rock, where Ruth will bring Daisy to justice. Along the road, they encounter Major Marquis Warren (an infamous bounty hunter) and Chris Mannix (a man who claims to be Red Rock's new sheriff). Lost in a blizzard, the bunch seeks refuge at Minnie's Haberdashery. When they arrive they are greeted by unfamiliar faces: Bob, who claims to be taking care of the place while Minnie is gone; Oswaldo Mobray, the hangman of Red Rock; Joe Gage, a cow puncher; and confederate general Sanford Smithers. As the storm overtakes the mountainside, the eight travelers come to learn that they might not make it to Red Rock after all... Written by Jordan Crighton

Goofs

Not only would Major Warren be passing as white if he fought in the Battle of Baton Rouge, nine months before the USCT were officially established, but as a cavalry major of any ethnicity he would not be there. Only Union infantry artillery, and gun boats were deployed at Baton Rouge. See more »

Alternate Versions

The 70mm Roadshow release version of 'The Hateful Eight' contains after the overture exclusive Weinstein Company logos followed by a Cinerama logo before the film begins. Later in the film after Oswaldo Mobray breaks up a fight between Marquis Warren and Sandy Smithers, the Roadshow version contains additional footage involving an exchange between John Ruth and Bob over a "half-plucked chicken", further dialogue between Sandy Smithers and Chris Mannix about Marquis Warren's incineration of Wellenbeck's Prisoner of War camp, and a brief moment in which Marquis Warren notices a jelly bean on the floor as he's refilling his coffee mug. The digital theatrical release version simply fades into to the scene where John Ruth expresses concern over the group's loyalty to Daisy Domergue. See more »

Don't believe the hype, it's okay but Tarantino can do better
6 March 2016 | by JerghalSee all my reviews

So I've finally seen this much talked about film and I have to say I was a bit disappointed. The H8 is a 168 min long movie which is described as a sort of mystery thriller and a lot a noise was made (mainly by Quentin himself) when the script leaked early and therefore would harm the box office chances of this flick. The movie did indeed not make big waves money wise but that was mainly because the overly long movie does actually not amount to much story wise. In other words there is no real clue. The dialogue, normally the strongpoint of Tarantino films, is actually not that great. Conversations are drawn out without the characters actually saying anything. It does help a lot that we do get a great cast (Kurt Russel, Sam L Jackson and Jennifer Jason Leigh) because without them the movie would fall apart rather quickly. The film was shot on 2,76:1 70mm widescreen because retro elitist Tarantino thinks digital isn't good enough and I do have to say the snowy landscape shots look awesome but they make up only 2% of the flick. The rest of it is in a cabin where standard 35mm or even a digital camera could have perfectly captured the images. About the music I can be short: there is almost none. It' might have been composed by Moricone who unrightfully got an Oscar for it, but it does not add much here in this film. I'm glad I didn't see it on the big screen. It works just as well on the small screen, maybe even better coz you can pauze it to get more booze and a snack. So despite my rather harsh comments I would recommend it but know that this is far from Tarantino's best work.
