Legendary film composer, Ennio Morricone, who is still going strong in his 8th decade of work, has seen it all and done it all in the world of cinema. Now, according to the Hollywood Reporter, Morricone is set to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He will be the 2574th star on the historic attraction, which is set to be unveiled at 7065 Hollywood Blvd by such noted lumanaries as Harvey Weinstein and Quentin Tarantino.
Quentin Tarantino is back with his new bloody, brutal, whodoneit, westernish film the Hateful Eight. There is no dispute that Tarantino is a master filmmaker, however, this is not his best written work. The film is a hodge podge of other films I have seen before, equipped with enough violence and racial epithets to make your head spin. I can admit Tarantino has handled violence and race pretty well in his previous films, but here I just left the theater somewhat unsatisfied and annoyed.
