|Cool, but not really informative.|
The Hateful Eight is the second (in a row) western from the director, and if you saw any of his last effort Django, you'd rightfully be excited to enter that world again through his eyes.
Once again we are set for a star-studded affair, with some great actors who have previously done some of their best work in Tarantino films.
We know the bare bones of the story: John “The Hangman” Ruth (Kurt Russell) takes wanted murderer Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) hostage, but is forced to take refuge in a stagecoach stopover with a few unsavory characters during a blizzard. There are glimpses of the rest of the eight throughout, from Major Marquis “The Bounty Hunter” Warren (Samuel L. Jackson) and Chris “The Sheriff” Mannix (Walton Goggins) to Joe “The Cow Puncher” Gage (Michael Madsen) and Oswaldo “The Little Man” Mobray (Tim Roth).
Compared to Django this looks to be a more traditional western fare, complete with period accurate facial hair. However, don't get it twisted, one look at the trailer and you'll see that signature Tarantino style.

It's time for that excitement that only a Tarantino release can muster. Christmas cannot come soon enough.
