REVIEWS: The Hateful Eight, Joy and Daddy's Home
The Hateful Eight: With The Hateful Eight, Tarantino finally may have delivered his friend the Oscar win that’s eluded him for 30 years, since Jackson earned a supporting nod for Pulp Fiction.
Daddy's Home: "I suppose Pissing Contest seemed too off-color for a supposed family comedy. But really, that’s all this sloppy, stupid and unfunny outing is."
Joy: "As he’s best known for movies with male protagonists—like The Fighter, Three Kings and Silver Linings Playbook—I was curious to see how Russell would handle a female-focused story with themes of friendship, sisterhood, motherhood, and gender politics. The short answer is: like an asshole."
