The Hateful 8 is definitely worth a view.

So is Inglorious Basterds.  The first scene with the farmer and Walz really needed the Angel Eyes music from beginning of GBU, but Tarantino had just used that at beginning of Kill Bill 2, can't go to the well too many times...that scene was so reminiscent of that.

The only thing I didn't like about Django Unchained was that the KKK scene was too long and protracted.  And Jonah Hill is a low-talent nobody, sorry.

I have not seen IB, but in the two Jonah Hill movies I have seen - Moneyball and The Wolf of Wall Street - he was GREAT

Hateful Eight is very, very different.

While I am often turned off by gratuitous violence (note I'm not thinking Peckinpah here but more pain and gore for its own sake) and verbose dialogue, there remains a lot to admire about a filmmaker who can really define themself as an auteur in today's Hollywood (i.e. you know it is one of their films just by watching it). Notably the main members of his crew (editors, cinematographers etc.) remain consistent. I am no Tarantino expert, but what is interesting about "Hateful Eight" is NL's point that it is just different in spite of the consistency in the crew. While I still wish we had seen a little more "Rules of the Game" style use of the extreme widescreen (i.e. lots of relevant background activity caught by the wide lens to develop further the "whodunnit" side of things and the visual style), the fact that he went with such an aspect ratio for such a claustrophobic film was a stroke of genius by him and cinematographer Robert Richardson.

I don't think it is a stroke of genius, but also not a strange idea.

QT was not the first to use a wide format for an intimate film.

Actually I think more than the widescreen factor, it was the anamorphic nature of the lenses that probably contributed to the effect due to what the lenses did to everything on the sides of the image. Polanski shot "carnage in 2.35:1 which is also anamorphic.
