I really appreaciate Quentin Tarantino and I think that he is one of the best directors of his generation. His movies are always intriguing and all of them have very nice soundtrack. His new film is western and he chose many good actors for the main roles. The film will only be released in 70 mm film format on Christmas Day before being released in digital theaters on January 8, 2016. Its official trailer has already more than 10.000.000 views on youtube!!! ohmy.gif

Was wondering why I couldn't see any times for this on the Cineworld website ....

QUOTE
The Hateful Eight: not showing near you at three key UK cinema chains

Cineworld, Picturehouse and Curzon cinemas will not screen Quentin Tarantino’s western after ‘joint decision’ with the film’s distributor, while Star Wars sequel blasts hole in opening figures

Cineworld, Picturehouse and Curzon cinemas won’t be showing Quentin Tarantino’s much-anticipated western The Hateful Eight after failing to come to an agreement with the film’s distributor.

The film, released on 8 January, is set to be one of the month’s biggest hits but will not be played at three of the country’s biggest cinema chains. Cineworld, who also own Picturehouse, alone represents around 800 screens.

After various users queried the notable absence, Cineworld’s official Twitter account stated that it was “a last-minute decision”.

In a statement to Digital Spy, a spokesperson said: “We can confirm that The Hateful Eight will not be shown at our cinemas. Unfortunately we were not able to reach an agreement with the movie’s distributor. We make every effort to show a wide variety of movies and we’re very excited about other releases in January including Joy and The Danish Girl.”

In an official statement, the film’s UK distributor Entertainment said the following in response:

" Cineworld had made us aware that they were very unhappy that The Hateful Eight had been booked into the Odeon Leicester Square for an exclusive 70mm Ultra Panavision presentation, and specifically that they would therefore not be able to play the film at their Picturehouse Central venue. Due to the special facilities required for the unique 70mm Ultra Panavision presentation we needed the largest theatre and screen possible in the West End and the Odeon Leicester Square was the natural choice. The technical elements and costs involved with this special presentation meant that this would need to be the exclusive West End venue. The Odeon Leicester Square seats 1680 and Picturehouse Central only seats 344 so clearly this was not a viable alternative.

Cineworld had every opportunity to book the film in their other cinemas across the country on the same basis as other exhibitors and declined to do so. This is despite the fact that there is no dispute over the financial terms for this release.

We feel very sorry for Cineworld’s customers and in particular their Unlimited cardholders who will be denied the chance to see the film at a Cineworld cinema using their Unlimited card - a result of this Picturehouse issue relating to a single London West End cinema. As far as the general release is concerned we will be booking more sites with other exhibitors to compensate for Cineworld’s lack of support for a film that has already been given 5 stars and declared as Quentin Tarantino’s masterpiece by The Guardian.

If Cineworld change their mind by tomorrow morning and decide to book the film in the proper way along the lines of the other exhibitors we would be happy for them to do so."

What a joke, such a 'toys out of pram' move mellow.gif

Not sure how interested I even am in seeing it (what with the running time being around the 3 hour mark and not knowing if it'll be my kind of thing at all) but it's the only interesting release of this weekend..

I might see The Danish Girl again just to fill time, it's that good (or could I enjoy Star Wars without seeing the previous movies??)

But I am considering buying a ticket for this (maybe even at the Odeon Leicester Square) just to prove...some kind of point :')

I have seen this already and really enjoyed it, Quentin Tarantino never disappoints. Even though it's on for about 3 hours it never gets boring, the dialogue as always in his films is well done, the setting was really cool and just loved the twists and turns this story takes. Plus the fact that the entire film takes place in just one setting, just makes the whole thing more intriguing.

The cast is excellent, everybody does a stand up job. Kurt Russell makes a great turn here, a definite stand out and hope that this will lead to a successful comeback for him, such an underrated actor, love so many of his films (The Thing), he was just brilliant and basically stole the show. Samuel L Jackson was another standout, always love him in Tarantino films and this is no exception, he was brilliant and funny, his stand out moment was that speech he gives to the old man (Bruce Dern), which would heartbreaking for anyone to hear, but Samuel's performance pulls it off to great results. Jennifer Jason Leigh another actress I always enjoy and again enjoy many of her films (Single White Female, The Hitcher), she gives another standout performance despite being a secondary character, the more that gets revealed about her, the more her character grips you, glad she's getting tons of notice and award wins and nominations. Walter Goggins also gives a good performance as The Sheriff, and his character does keep you guessing all the way through. Even Channing Tatum, who isn't in it that much, gives a decent turn.

This is how I would rank this amongst Tarantino's other films =

01. Kill Bill Vol 1
02. Pulp Fiction
03. Djanjo Unchained
04. Kill Bill Vol 2
05. The Hateful Eight
06 Jackie Brown
07. Inglorious Basterds
08. Reservoir Dogs
09. Death Proof

Jennifer Jason Leigh was my standout but Samuel L Jackson was also great. Think I enjoyed it more than I expected though I still didn't LOVE it, got into it more from chapter 4 onwards where I started to make sense of it but I enjoyed parts of the earlier chapters too (I liked how it had 'chapters' and to say how long the running time is, it never really felt like it dragged).

I liked the violence, done in a comic, funny way and a few times I laughed out loud (the first time of which I remember being when Sam L Jackson slapped Jennifer and she fell out of the carriage pulling Kurt Russell with her laugh.gif). Wish we had more of Minnie, her French was another highlight.

So not a complete waste of forking out an extra £10 to see it at Odeon (a nice, first time Odeon experience too..)

Saw this today, loved it! We had an interval, the first time I've ever been to a film with one of those. laugh.gif (it was after the point where the old man got shot)).

Yes everyone has the interval, that's how QT wanted it shown. I quite enjoyed having the interval, as I do get rather restless. Loads of people didn't come back for part to though. kink.gif

I thought it took a VERY long time to get going, I know it had to portay each character and such but a lot of people in our showing didn't come back after the interval, I imagine because they thought it would be the same as before.

The second half was good though, nice a bloody (just as you'd expect from Tarantino)!

We don't get the intervals here in Nottingham! laugh.gif

The film was "alright". But that was it. Which seems to be the norm for me and QT films in general. The only one that I've really liked is 'Django Unchained'. I thought it was far too slow and for a film that is almost 3 hours long, that's NOT what you need or want laugh.gif The 2nd half was indeed much stronger, but again, it really didn't excite me too much and was all a bit "typical Quentin".

EDIT: Oops. I ALWAYS forget QT did 'Inglorious Basterds'! That's by FAR my fave of his <3

Inglorious bast*rds is by far is best recent output I agree.

I love Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill 1, Jackie Brown and Reservoir Dogs though.

Did you guys all find the special 70mm (/roadshow) showings? My screening didn't have an interval (not that I needed one because it never got to 'oh god, when is this crap going to end?' territory for me). I'm interested to know which scenes differ slightly between the two versions and how so, without affecting the plot.

I watched last night and thought it was extremely long (the first half in particular). However, the second half was much better and had some pretty entertaining moments. Some of the jokes were pretty funny too. Overall, I'd say average and it could have been much better.

"The Hateful Eight" is the latest film by talented director Quentin Tarantino, which was released in my country in January! It won several awards from various American critics associations and it was nominated in three categories for an Oscar Award, including Best Supporting Actress, Best Original Score and Best Cinematography. Despite this, there were many who reported its absence from some major Oscar categories including "Best Original Screenplay" and "Best Director". Having seen most of Tarantino films either in the cinema or on DVD, I can say that he is a charismatic creator with many fans all over the world! However, in my opinion, none of his film cannot surpass the greatness of "Kill Bill"! Perhaps the best revenge movie ever!
"The Hateful Eight" takes place some years after the American Civil War. A bounty hunter, John Ruth, has captured a dangerous woman, Daisy Domergue, and brings her to the city of Red Rock for a trial. On their way they will encounter two strangers, Major Marquis Warren, who is a notorious black bounty hunter and Chris Mannix, who claims to be the new sheriff in town. All of them will end up on the isolated Minnie's Haberdashery, in which they will meet four strangers. As the hours pass, their chances of staying alive will go down. "The Hateful Eight" is a Western mystery film, in which those elements are not missing at all that characterize of Tarantino movies. It had abundant violence, particularly strong language, several splatter scenes and caustic humor. The film is divided into 6 chapters and the bulk of the story takes place within a room. "The Hateful Eight" had an intelligent and well-written script, great directing and orchestrated soundtrack from the maximum Ennio Morricone. The cast consists of famous and renowned actors and actresses and most characters of the film were highly structured. However, its plot reminded me of -at times- "Identity", as I did not like the way that the story came to the end. I would expect something more subversive for a Tarantino film. Last but not least, "The Hateful Eight" talks about racial separation, friendship, justice and betrayal.
"The Hateful Eight" is certainly one of the most remarkable productions of last year! Although its overall duration lasts 168 minutes, it is seen pleasantly and it did not tire us at any point. It has received very positive feedback from the audience and critics and it has acquired a high average score of 7,9 by IMDb users. In my personal opinion, it was rightly not selected in the main categories of Academy Awards because it didn't make the difference with its course and its content. However, it is a film that deserves to watch it sometime in your life.
