Mad Max Fury Road - Max and Furiosa

The top 10 list I always look forward to the most towards the end of any year is the one from writer-director Quentin Tarantino. His taste is not only varied, but sometimes a little outside of the box. The director once included Woody Allen‘s Anything Else on a list featuring his favorite movies of the past 20 years or so — which, ever since he did that, has made me want to reevaluate Anything Else. Unlike the past few years, Tarantino has yet to reveal his top picks of the year, but he has declared his love for director George Miller‘s Mad Max: Fury Road.

the hateful eight featurette

The Hateful Eight is the sixth time Quentin Tarantino and Samuel L. Jackson have collaborated on a film in some capacity and their ongoing partnership is one worth celebrating. Hell, when finished ranking every single Tarantino character, three of Jackson’s performances made it into the top 20. They bring out the best in one another – no one is as good at making Tarantino’s stylized dialogue sing quite like Jackson, who makes lengthy monologues and sudden violence look effortless.

Much of the marketing for The Hateful Eight has put Jackson’s Major Marquis Warren, a former slave turned Civil War officer turned bounty hunter, front-and-center and for good reason: the man is an electric performer whose mere presence in a trailer sends chills down the spine. Now, the Weinstein Company has released a special video focusing on Jackson’s role in the film and you can watch it after the jump.

Tim Roth interview

You get the sense both actor Tim Roth and his character in The Hateful Eight, Oswaldo Mobray, are enjoying themselves immensely all throughout Quentin Tarantino‘s latest western. Roth plays a very posh and exuberant Englishman, who’s also a surprisingly thoughtful hangman.

The Hateful Eight is as much a mystery as it is a western, and how the story plays out, I imagine, will be even more satisfying on repeat viewings. The smallest of gestures, conversations, and even the blocking says so much about where these characters stand. It’s an intricately crafted film, and Roth, quite clearly, had a ball making it.

I spoke to a few actors at The Hateful Eight press day, and rarely are they so happy to be promoting a movie. This is Roth’s fourth collaboration with Tarantino, and he was kind enough to discuss the film, Oswaldo Mobray, and more with us.

every quentin tarantino character ranked

Every single Quentin Tarantino character is full of life. Look to the fringes of his films and you’ll find supporting characters with more personality and spark than leading characters in other movies. Minor characters, who appear for a single scene and vanish forever, are given lines of dialogue that would be the highlight of other films. Few living filmmakers stack their films with so many memorable names and faces.

And with his new movie, The Hateful Eight, about to hit theaters, it’s time to something really, really dumb: rank every single Quentin Tarantino character of any significance from worst to best. Bear with me. This is going to take awhile.
