Mostly the ugly in this case. Tarantino’s roadshow production of the Hateful Eight sounded like a great idea to me. Present the film in 70mm projected glory, complete with an intermission and — best of all — no pre-show commercials. Many film insiders snapped up the tickets for this very limited run.
As it turned out though, there were problems. Some were purely artistic, as some complained that 70mm was wasted on the story, which takes place largely on one indoor set. Many other problems were technical though. This blog details many tweets complaining of projection problems, including focus, broken film, and in one extreme case, a theatre substituting the digital version when the film did not work out.
Could this be the last stand for film? That seems unlikely. Another blockbuster — numbered seven rather than a Hateful Eight — also was shot on film recently, and it is doing pretty well.
