Some time after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. Bounty hunter John Ruth and his fugitive captive Daisy Domergue race towards the town of Red Rock, where Ruth will bring Daisy to justice. Along the road, they encounter Major Marquis Warren (an infamous bounty hunter) and Chris Mannix (a man who claims to be Red Rock's new sheriff). Lost in a blizzard, the bunch seeks refuge at Minnie's Haberdashery. When they arrive they are greeted by unfamiliar faces: Bob, who claims to be taking care of the place while Minnie is gone; Oswaldo Mobray, the hangman of Red Rock; Joe Gage, a cow puncher; and confederate general Sanford Smithers. As the storm overtakes the mountainside, the eight travelers come to learn that they might not make it to Red Rock after all...Written by
The problem when a director becomes too successful is that no one dare to say no to him.
They let him ramble on with hours of pointless dialogue, violence and boring back stories. They let him put the actors in a room for almost three hours, saying lines that are totally uninteresting. And they expect the audience to eat it up.
Just because it's QT who have done this, some fan boys, fan girls of the public and press will eat it up and praise it - just because it's done by QT. Any unknown writer/director and it would go straight to the DVD shelf. Well, bring a lot of caffeine and you might get through it. Or... just drink the coffee without the movie/stage play, and you will save both time and money.
