The Hateful Eight

Set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth and his fugitive Daisy Domergue, race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren, a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix, a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob, who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray, the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers. As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…

Scott’s Take

Such a great movie. A lot of people had problems with The Hateful Eight and I just don’t see it. Hopefully the Blu-Ray version comes with the Roadshow version.

Concussion

Based on the true story of the doctor who discovered CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) in football players, and the uphill battle he faced in bringing the information to the public.

Scott’s Take

This is the movie that the NFL doesn’t want you to see and for good reason. Steve, take the wheel on this bad boy. Tell Da Truth!

Steve’s Take

Point Break was absolutely KILLED by critics on Rotten Tomatoes. That being said, Scotty thought it was a fun flick and I will create a mindless night at home this week and check this one out.

Next Week

My pick of the week is definitely Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight. So under appreciated. Next week we have a clean slate aside from that behemoth known as Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Have a great week everyone.
