[drew goddard watching The Hateful Eight] hahahaha what? no. noooo. no no no no, this is all wrong. it’s fine, i’ll do it myself
this movie is a beautiful magic trick. everything about it screams “boilerplate bargain bin thriller,” but the performances are so captivating and the writing is so focused that it manages to feel... like a prestige movie? pun not intended. even with an undercooked b-story, it’s very smart, surprisingly funny, cynical, and perfectly structured. ya done it again, stevie micks!!
everybody in this movie is very good, but... got damn... daniel fuckin’ kaluuya!!!! viola fuckin’ davis!!!! cynthia fuckin’ erivo!!!! a preemptive “fuck the academy” for ALL y’alls oscar snubs!!!
