For this year’s Oscar off-season, we are taking a look back on the 2015 film year which was right before Next Best Picture launched. We asked the NBP Film Community to vote on 5 films nominated for Best Picture and 5 films nominated for Oscars other than Best Picture from that year to be reviewed on the podcast, exclusively for our Patreon subscribers. We already reviewed “Brooklyn,” “Sicario,” “Ex Machina,” “Room,” “Spotlight,” “Inside Out,” “The Revenant,” and now, we are reviewing Quentin Tarantino’s 8th film “The Hateful Eight.”
One of Tarantino’s more divided films, there has been a lot of debate about the “The Hateful Eight’s” style, its decision to shoot in 70mm for a mostly claustrophobic setting, its characters, themes and more. With an almost three hour running time and a few years to look back and reflect, this revisit gave us some new found perspective on Tarantino’s whodunit western. Joining me for this 2015 retrospective podcast review is Josh Parham and Danilo Castro.
This is a preview of the podcast, the full version of which is only available to those who subscribe to us on Patreon. For the small price of $1 a month, you can receive this review along with other exclusive podcast content, so be sure to subscribe here.
