Movie Review: ‘Hateful Eight’ - Salt Lake Tribune

Salt Lake Tribune: Here's something you don't see too often: A critic who's indifferent about a Quentin Tarantino movie.

For all his many talents as a voracious scholar of genres who can pack a dozen references to old movies in every frame of film, Tarantino is also great at pushing critics' buttons with his penchant for bloody violence and his confrontational use of the N-word.

Surely, there are plenty of bullets and gratuitous racial slurs sent flying around Tarantino's latest movie, "The Hateful Eight" — along with mistreatment of the most prominent female character that some critics have branded misogynistic. But for me, the movie itself, like Tarantino's defiant posturing and the pearl-clutching reactions, are feeling like warmed-over Christmas leftovers.

The story is too old to be commented.
