Quentin Tarantino is a filmmaker who simply can't be ignored, especially when he lobs a three-hour wide-screen epic whodunit Western into the cinema. This strikingly entertaining film is packed with his trademark plot twists and dialogue that snaps and crackles in every direction imaginable. So even though it's mainly set in a single room, it's never boring. But with no discernible point, it also leaves the audience rather cold.
In the snowy Rockies of southern Wyoming, cavalry officer turned bounty hunter Warren (Samuel L. Jackson) hitches a ride on a stagecoach with shifty gunslinger John (Kurt Russell), who is escorting feisty outlaw Daisy (Jennifer Jason Leigh) to collect the reward on her head and see her hanged. They also pick up lost new sheriff Chris (Walton Goggins) before an intense blizzard forces them to take shelter at a mountain lodge run by the suspicious Bob (Demian Bichir). Inside, hangman Oswaldo (Tim Roth), war veteran Sandy (Bruce Dern) and their mysterious friend Joe (Michael Madsen) are also waiting out the storm. And as these eight people circle around each other, it's clear that each of them wants the others dead.
No, there's not a single trustworthy person in this story, and Tarantino has a great time revealing the inner murkiness within each one. This gives the actors plenty of texture to work with, as they deliver their lines with knowing innuendo, razor-sharp wit and glowering loathing. The set-up feels somewhat belaboured, but the film's second half is a cracking Agatha Christie-style mystery as we wait for the first shot to be fired. With its single setting, it feels like a particularly nasty stage play, livened up by Tarantino's wordy writing, which drops in big issues like racism and sexism without ever quite grappling with them. And there's of course also a steady stream of vicious violence, including an extended flashback featuring Channing Tatum.

Ahead of the British release of 'The Hateful Eight', Tim Roth spoke to us at the European premiere about working with Quentin Tarantino once again.
Ahead of the widespread theatrical release of Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie The Hateful Eight in British cinemas in the new year, one of the film’s stars, Tim Roth, spoke to us at its European premiere earlier this month.
Roth starred in both of Tarantino’s first two major films, Reservoir Dogs (1992) and Pulp Fiction (1994), which are both arguably still most people’s favourites among all of his films. The Hateful Eight therefore sees Roth work with the great director for the first time in over two decades, and we asked him what the differences were in Tarantino’s work then and now.

Roth played the suspended FIFA president in 'United Passions', which bombed at the box office earlier in 2015.
A matter of days before Sepp Blatter was handed down an eight year ban from all football-related activities, Tim Roth has trashed the movie in which he starred as the disgraced former FIFA president, United Passions.
You may remember the movie’s disastrous box office performance when it was released back in June this year, taking just $607 on its opening weekend in the United States. 90% funded by FIFA itself, it unfortunately came out just as the organisation was engulfed in the much-publicised corruption scandal and the subsequent investigation.

Tim Roth - Celebrities attend the European Premiere of The Hateful Eight at Odeon Leicester Square in London. Legendary auteur Quentin Tarantino will bring his highly anticipated eighth film THE HATEFUL EIGHT to the big screen on 8th January 2016. The film will open in glorious 70mm in London's West End alongside a theatrical digital release nationwide. Beloved by filmmakers and cinephiles for its wide-scope and high-resolution image quality, 70mm stock captures nearly twice the landscape of the more common 35mm and digital styles. Six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as "The Hangman," will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town's new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie's Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie's, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Demian Bichir), who's taking care of Minnie's while she's visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Tim Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Michael Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all... Written and directed by Academy Award® winning writer/director Quentin Tarantino, THE HATEFUL EIGHT is produced by Richard N. Gladstein, Stacey Sher and Shannon McIntosh. Harvey Weinstein, Bob Weinstein and Georgia Kacandes are executive at Odeon Leicester Square - London, United Kingdom - Thursday 10th December 2015
John Ruth earnt his nickname The Hangman for a good reason, he's one of the best bounty hunters of his generation and he's just caught himself a BIG prize, Daisy Domergue has a bounty of ten thousand dollars on her head and Ruth isn't going to share his reward with any other man he might meet on the road.
On their trip, the weather in Wyoming begins to turn and the bounty hunter and his trophy must leave the road and take shelter. They find themselves hauled up at Minnie's Haberdashery, a small stagecoah stopover. This trip just became all the more risky for Ruth as they're not the only dubious residents staying at the layover.
Knowning that the chatter will soon spread, each member of the boarding house are introduced to one another. There's the new sheriff Chris Mannix; Bob The Mexican who's looking after Minnie's Haberdashery whilst Minnie is busy; Oswaldo Mobray AKA The Little man; General Sanford Smithers, an aging confederate General; Joe Gage also known as The Cow-puncher and finally the mysterious Major Marquis Warren, an ex-soldier (for the Union) turned notable bounty hunter.

John Ruth, known by his associates and like-minded peers as The Hangman on account of his fondness for hanging criminals, is a formidable bounty hunter on his way to Red Rock with a suspected murderer named Daisy Domergue. Along the way, they bump into another brutal bounty hunter named Major Marquis Warren who wastes no time in informing Daisy of her captor's uniquely vicious reputation, and they also pick up self-proclaimed new sheriff of Red Rock Chris Mannix. It's a bitter winter and soon a furious blizzard threatens to engulf them and their stagecoach. Thus, they decide to seek shelter at a small place on a mountain pass called Minnie's Haberdashery, which is currently playing host to caretaker Bob, Red Rock's own hangman Oswaldo Mobray, a ranch hand named Joe Gage and former Confederacy general Sandy Smithers. Unfortunately, the bounty hunters are not the only volatile ones at the haberdashery, and it seems some lethal mounting deception is threatening to bury them well before the storm.

It's the Western every Tarantino fan has been waiting for...
Guns, violence, cool outfits and immeasurable cheese is everything that Quentin Tarantino is about, so fans have been waiting for a good old Western flick from him for a long time. Now we can rejoice because his eighth movie, 'The Hateful Eight', brings us just that, complete with shoot-outs, stetsons, suspicion - and a helluva lotta snow.
Samuel L. Jackson is as formidable as ever in 'The Hateful Eight'
Tarantino touched on the Western genre with 2012's 'Django Unchained', of course, but that was more about illicit slavery than country outlaws; there's usually humour to the Oscar winning director's work despite the shameless brutality of it, but 'Django' gave us something serious to think about. 'The Hateful Eight' is just plain enjoyable, bounty hunter, sweary (thanks to Samuel L. Jackson) fun, that everyone should be excited for come winter.
Prepare to have your mind blown by the list of actors who might have taken the places of some of the 1994 movie's iconic performances.
Pulp Fiction has long since passed into the annals of movie history, confirming its director Quentin Tarantino as one of the modern greats of cinema and becoming arguably the biggest cult film of the 1990s. But, according to leaked documents, it could have looked very different indeed, as it turns out that many of its stars may not have been Tarantino’s first choices for their respective roles.
His wishlist – which has not yet been officially confirmed as genuine by Tarantino’s reps – was leaked via Reddit on Tuesday (September 15th) and makes for extremely interesting reading. Consisting of two sheets of hand-typed paper, the biggest revelation is that John Travolta, who received an Oscar nomination for his role as gangster Vincent Vega, was not Tarantino’s first choice. Rather, he originally wanted Michael Madsen – who of course did star in his first movie Reservoir Dogs just two years before – to play the part.
