| I do not understand the hate the movie for me it is one of the best Tarantino movies
I was a bit sceptical about watching the movie, judging by reviews online and some friends who watched it,but in the end I really liked it.The acting was great .The story was very intriguing with the whole "Murder Mystery" theme.Another plus was the score by the one and only Ennio Morricone.The cinematography was also brilliant especialy with all the breathtaking sceneries in the early part.My only promblem was that the violence was a bit too extreme in some parts,but it is a Tarantino movie so this was expected.Overall it was a good movie that I will definately rewatch it.

Did You Know?


The song sung by Daisy was performed by Jennifer Jason Leigh live on-set. The soundtrack for the film features the song, along with the sounds of the wood being hammered into the door, and dialogue by Kurt Russell.


Major Marquis Warren: Got room for one more?


Judy says Auckland is New Zealand's biggest city. Auckland became New Zealand's largest city in the 1900s, when it surpassed Dunedin.

Crazy Credits

The roadshow version of the film opens with a faux-vintage Weinstein Company logo, in flat white-on-blue with a very 70s font along with a "Cinerama" logo. The first few credits appear in the same font as the logo's before switching to Quentin Tarantino's usual Friz Quadrata. The standard release opens with only the normal Weinstein Company logo before going directly into the sweeping Panavision shots.

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.
