Just watched The Hateful Eight, Tarantino's latest masterpiece (and all three hours of it is). Kurt Russell is beautiful. He's actually beautiful to look at. Goldie Hawn is very lucky. Or perhaps he was just very well lit. Tarantino should get an Oscar. He won't but he should. He gives the best lines to Sam L Jackson, Tim Roth (superb superb and strangely very attractive), and the beautiful Kurt again. Its a cross between Agatha Christie, Carrie and a spaghetti western with snow. Like an eskimo western. He chooses actors who have so much character in the face, each line etched like a story in itself. Jennifer Jason Leigh is horrible but she's meant to be horrible. Channing Tatum doesn't have lines (on the face) and it shows, but he had a strangely sinister quality which Tarantino sees. He just needs more lines (on the face that is). Then he'll be one of Tarantinos beautiful eight for good. Iconic film which will get better each time you see it.
