In 2012 and 2015, director Quentin Tarantino stepped away from the contemporary crime scene to go back to the 60s, the 1860s that is in a pair of westerns set before and after the Civil War with Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight. Both would net Oscars (including one for Tarantino's script and another for iconic composer Enio Morricone) and create controversy yet again for the filmmaker's use of colorful (no pun intended) language. But do these film rank as some of the best that this iconic filmmaker has made or should be strung up and ridden out on a rail? MovieDude Eric, Kent, Lobster & special guest Cesar saddle up to find out.
