    Once upon a time in Hollywood

    I'm not really sure what the point of this movie is, except the countless late 60s references and doing a superstar buddy thing with Decrapio and Pitt. Brad looks damn good without a shirt at his age. They did a creepy reproduction of Steve McQueen at one point. Pacino gets to play the little Jewish Hollywood agent, and pulls it off. Fun movie to watch though, with a super violent climax. 75 Benny rotted bunny heads.

    Let's do some livin'
    After, we die

    It was alright. No real plot, but still entertaining.

    Perhaps damning with faint praise, but I now approach Tarantino movies expecting to really enjoy certain scenes (and dialogue) rather than the movie as a whole.

    I could replay the first scene of Inglourious Basterds again and again.

    I dunno. ALL of Django was fantastic. And I loved all of Inglorious. Still haven't seen The Hateful 8, based on the reviews.

    Is it a prank if it is the truth?

    I loved it. You don't watch Tarantino movies for the plot. Its for the colorful dialogue and great characters .

    No doubt...

    I remember watching From Dusk Till Dawn, about midway through I had to eject the tape to make sure I was still watching the same movie...

    Hateful 8 sucks balls.


    The other 2 were great because they had Christoph Waltz in them.

    Anybody seen it on film?

    It's screening in 35mm and 70mm in some spots...

    https://www.indiewire.com/2019/07/on...no-1202160721/

    And it's funny in regards to all the Hateful 8 haters. I actually thought Django sucked balls and Hateful 8 was decent, except for Channing Tatum...he was miscast/had no business in the film.

    It was the movie version of a Paul McCartney song.

    Fucking brilliant.

    Pretty much every Paul McCartney song starts out one way, then it's like he gets bored and starts a new song in the middle of the song he's already playing.

    See Band on the Run and pretty much every other Paul McCartney song as an example.

    Same as the movie From Dusk til Dawn.

    The movie starts out one way, then it's like it gets bored and starts a new movie in the middle of the movie that's already playing.


    Thus...

    It's far more brilliant in a single-post, pithy-observation than when I have to explain it to the punters, but I guess I have to play down to the audience I'm given.

    Since we're on a Tarantino music riff, one of my favorite pieces of music utilized in one of his films is "Battle Without Honor or Humanity" from Kill Bill Vol. 1

    Reminded me a bit of Jeff Beck

    Perhaps Sir Paul and QT both suffer from ADHD?

But, from what I can see, the only shit out there is Spider Man sucks off Aquaman part 4. Nobody is making good movies. I look at the marquee of the local Dozenplex, and never see shit I want to see. It's a fucking cultural desert. Maybe QT should sign a deal with Netflix or Amazon or HBO, because those are the only outlets producing stuff worth watching.
    I blame the fall of Harvey Weinstein for a lot of this, seriously. That fat, ugly pig was an awesome patron of good cinema. Now he's gone.
