| Don't believe the 1's and 2's or the 9's and 10's
The film is too well crafted to get the really low scores, the cinematography is too good, the acting too high caliber, the direction too solid, the score too nice, and the flick too engaging for such ratings.

This also applies to the other end. The "twists" are unimportant and add no spice, the pacing just slogs along, the joy too nonexistent, the characters evoke too little emotion either way, the story too light on satisfaction, the story telling too inconsistent, the length too needless,the magic (other than on the technical side) too absent, and the rewatchability too minimal for me to see greatness but maybe a second viewing will change my perspective but it will definitely be on video for me, only the lure of a hot date fixated on going could get me into the theater again other than maybe just for the experience a 70mm screening.

I'm a pretty avid Tarrentino fan but I didn't overly enjoy this effort. I more appreciate it and can't say I wasn't engaged but I also can't say that I'm eager to see it again and worse for the first time I have little inclination to do so with a flick by Q.

A generous 7/10 (rounding up from 6.5) for me but I could see ceiling of 8 and a basement of 4 at the lowest.

Trivia

The opening credit sequence, which begins with a close-up of a crucifix and ends after the producer's credit, is one unbroken shot lasting around three minutes and forty seconds.


Quotes

Major Marquis Warren: Got room for one more?


Goofs

Warren says that he and Smithers fought against each other during the Civil War at the Battle of Baton Rouge. The battle took place in 1862, African-American troops first saw combat in 1863.


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 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.
