Both The Revenant and Hateful Eight are indeed memorable. However I'd say the Revenant is the more intelligent between the two.
Between the two directors of these films I'd say that Inarritu produces the more thoughtful movie, while Tarrentino endeavors to be bombastic, crass and in our faces.
...I enjoyed Hateful and was entertained but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless they are a real Tarantino fan.
That movie, along with his others, definitely has a style. Some might call this 'art'. I won't say anything if somebody does call his movies 'art'. Like Pulp Fiction, like the first Kill Bill movie, there is a comic book sense to it.
I couldn't stomach Death Proof, even though I watched it through....once. I will not revisit that one. Just too dark.
From Dusk 'til Dawn. I liked parts of that movie. Especially that little dance Salma Hayek was doing that moment prior to her turning into a demon. Hell of a scene.
All in all, Tarantino continues to fund his movies. Therefore he does have a bankable box office audience. And we movie goers talk about the movies whether we enjoy them or not.
...my favorites of his:
1. Pulp Fiction
2. Kill Bill 2
3. Django Unchained
4. Inglorious Bastards
He says he is going to make 2 more films and then retire.
...in which he said all he really has to say, including the homosexual violence theme. I did notice a fixation with nasty stuff being thrown in people's faces and hair in this last film, which I guess is new for him.
