HypeCast: The Hateful Eight, Sicario, and New Year's Resolutions

        Hello, and welcome back to the HypeCast, a film-centric podcast hosted by Collin Sherwood Elwyn and Tyler Mitchell. In today's episode, Collin and Tyler discuss Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight, the auteur's latest dialogue-driven bloodbath, which they both saw projected in glorious 70mm... and that's film, y'all. Before spending an eternity at Minnie's Haberdashery, the two catch up on one of 2015's best films, Sicario, jogging Collin's memory, and elaborating on Tyler's experience in the land of wolves in one fell swoop. Then the aforementioned chamber-piece western enters our conversation, and things get a little hairy. Not to blow your mind before you've even listened to the podcast, but Tarantino's use of the N-word is at least slightly problematic, as is the endless destruction of Jennifer Jason Leigh's poor face. Finally, the two devise New Years resolutions for themselves, as well as a slew of film industry higher-ups who could stand to take a piece of advice here and there. Warning: a few naughty words are contained within. Continue at your own risk. Here We Go!
