For all fans of boxing movies, here comes another one…
This trailer isn’t perfect but I’m interested in the fighter’s story. More so than the actual fight sequences. The fighter, Anthony is played by Christian DeMeo (young Anthony) and William Demeo. When Young Anthony’s parents are no longer in the picture, how will the relationship between him and the mob boss that has taken him under his wing play out? I’m hoping this movie may just be better than the trailer may suggest.
Michael Madsen, Shannen Doherty, Danny Glover, Alec Baldwin and Mike Mike Tyson also star.
I wasn’t as excited as anticipated after I first saw the first teaser trailer of Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, however I’m thinking that my lacklustre enthusiasm may have had more to do with the film’s genre than anything else.
Admittedly, the western will probably never be my first choice in movie genre but I have absolutely zero regrets post The Hateful Eight and Tarantino’s previous movie Django Unchained (2012), also a western.
Good servings of expert story telling, entertaining dialogue, great music and camerawork are all very present in The Hateful Eight – A film I consider a well sculpted two-plus hours of suspenseful entertainment with an ending you will love.
The cinematography in the movie also manages to stand out even though everything in the film happens at precisely 3 locations.
I liked the pace and the way things really started to build up especially around the moment that the audience starts to hear ‘Silent Night’ on the piano. The tension and suspense at this point is really something to experience and part of the reason Tarantino is considered a master film maker.
If you hadn’t already guessed, I think that The Hateful Eight is a movie worth seeing. Certainly one I’ll be watching again in the very near future. I don’t know if it’s quite Tarantino’s best but perhaps that would depend on one’s preferred movie genre.
Walton Goggins portrayal of Sheriff Chris Mannix, Tim Roth’s Oswaldo Mobray and Samuel L. Jackson’s Major Marquis Warren are my favourite of The Hateful Eight characters. The first two because of the humour and the latter thanks to the dialogue, style and undeniable cool.
Watch The Hateful Eight for the story telling and film making mastery. Lastly, if you can make out the first lines of dialogue that come out of the mouth of Jody, played by Channing Tatum, please let me know in the comments below because I couldn’t make sense of it.
Quentin Tarantino has a new movie and this time it’s a western that’s centred around bounty hunters and set in post-Civil War Wyoming.
This trailer doesn’t exactly have me yelping with joy just yet, but of course I’m intrigued and I’ll watch because it’s Tarantino and I know many good things including super dialogue and cinematography are coming.
Cast: Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Madsen, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Kurt Russell…
