Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight': What We Were All Thinking

Friends, there are spoilers.

Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight': What We Were All Thinking

It is rumored that Quentin Tarantino's newest film entitled "The Hateful Eight" is his eighth and final production, and I could not be more disappointed. The American screenwriter, director and producer has been in charge of some of the most incredible movies that I have ever had the experience of viewing such as "Pulp Fiction," "Kill Bill," "Inglorious Basterds" and "Django: Unchained."

His latest, "The Hateful Eight," is an entirely different story. It has a terribly slow beginning, a complete disregard for any type of character development, and also a plethora of holes that left me questioning the basis of the entire movie. It seems his main focus truly is violence in this film, and because of that - the film lost a certain charm that we as viewers can find in any other Tarantino masterpieces.

Here come the spoilers, friends.

Samuel L. Jackson is MAGNIFICENT, as always. Yet his character is very ominous. He is supposedly a bounty hunter that was once heavily hunted himself. In his youth, he fought with the North in the Civil War and was eventually promoted to Major. Those two facts alone are very questionable themselves: how did he suddenly become seen as a "good guy" and was no longer hunted? And how did he, spending his childhood as a slave, become so highly ranked in the military during a war that was about slavery, albeit they were in his favor?

The most comical point in the movie, for me, was how Channing Tatum was incorporated. From the beginning credits, they made sure to list Channing Tatum's name last, building up how unusual it was for him to be cast. I sat and waited to see his beauty grace the screen literally the entire three hours, only for him to be shot brutally in the head after probably five minutes. It was probably Tarantino's only motive for casting him - being able to kill off Channing Tatum's character in a grotesque way - and that I found hysterical.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
