Hateful Eight..

The Hateful Eight

I know its late,  but I just finished this little piece of cinema in all my spare time… Classic Tarantino.  Its almost like QT is the anti-Sandler.  They both have a clique of actors they constantly work with but instead of utter garbage, QT puts out generally decent,  and sometimes classic movies(Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs).  This was on the better end of the spectrum and Samuel L really made it fun.  It’s almost like he just has such a great time doing  these films that you can just see the joy in his eyes.  The whole cast did an exemplary job, actually.

Basically a bunch of folks end up in a remote rest stop during a blizzard in Wyoming, I think, and it all ends up in a world of shit.  That’s pretty much the film in a nutshell.  Its fun,  gory and worth watching.  3.5 out of 5 on the generic review scale.


Walking Dead aka Andrea.. *warning spoiler alert

I just finished watching The Walking Dead and while I love the show in general,  there are two characters that consistently annoy me,  Laurie and Carl.  Carl ruins every second he is on screen simply because he is a terrible actor.  Laurie bothers me because she always makes stupid decisions.  Like brain dead idiocy.  Tonights antepenultimate season episode had her finally make the call to leave Woodbury, which she probably should have done when she saw the Governor’s collection of heads and his friggin daughter on a chain, but it seems that *now* is the time the Gov went too far.  What?  She drives me crazy.  Her plight and actions were pretty predictable,  but the excellent creepiness of the Governor was enough to save the episode for me.

This episode gets about a 6.   I think the next two are going to be frigging fantastic!
