Jojo Rabbit

Very entertaining.  Maybe one of the strangest movies I’ve ever seen. Lots of humor and thought provoking. 
 

8/10

Shot Caller on Netflix. 8.5/10 and probably my biggest fear in life.

Disagree on the second one and Tokyo Drift.

Tokyo Drift I think gets better each time I watch. Mostly because Han became an integral character. 2 is just stupid, but we get Luda and Tyrese. It’s a dumb action flick that I watch everytime it’s on cable. Actually, any Fast movies and any Jurassic Park movie I end up watching.

Once upon a time in Hollywood. 2/10 and the worst Tarantino movie imho. It's about 2 hours too long and most of the characters are unimportant.

I haven't quite finished it yet....But it started out like "wow, this might be the best Tarantino film yet", peaking with the Bruce Lee fight...then it began a pretty steady decline.

I did some reading on it, and I do think it fairs a little better if you understand it's sort of a homage to the era, a biopic of the has-beens and never-were's that Hollywood chews up and spits out.  Lot of fascinating little details (ok, probably more interesting than the movie) like how there were no Asian leading-men, so Bruce Lee had to go find success over in Hong Kong.

Also, there's only a few pics to go off of, but Sharon Tate might have been a bigger smoke-show than Margot Robbie.  Don't anyone look up Sharon Tate unless they want spoilers.

Damn near left it was so horrible.

It kind of felt like team America where all the actors sit around talking about how cool and important they are.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was amazing. You all are crazy. Did you not know what it was supposed to be about? Hollywood in the 60s/70s and the Manson Family alternate universe. It was hilarious and amazing.
 

And Gut, who doesn’t know what happened to the real Sharon Tate? Unless you mean something else?

I haven't finished it yet.  I thought it started amazing and then had really started to drag.  I've got maybe an hour left.

And, no, I didn't know about the real Sharon Tate.  I remember watching some Manson stuff 25 years ago, but certainly don't remember any names.  Didn't even remember anything about their victims.  I was wondering what she was doing with pedo Roman Polanski.  Man did that dude have a messed-up life.

Huh, I just assumed Charles Manson stuff was more widespread knowledge. But maybe not. We watched a few documentaries in college about it, so that probably warped my perception on the rest of the population.

As for the movie, QT almost always has 1-2 scenes that aren’t needed or drag. I enjoy them usually because his style suits my taste, but I get it. Loved the Leo acting in the western in OUATIH, but understand why most think it was dumb and long. The Pitt stuff with the Manson Family was creepy as hell and flat out amazing. The last hour gets good again, also. Now that you know what actually happened, you’ll enjoy the end more.

You Must Remember Manson is a solid podcast on the topic. I wanted to listen to it before watching Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which I still haven't had a chance to see.

6/10.  Complete crap by Tarantino standards, but still a worthwhile watch, IMO.  I think how well someone really likes the movie depends on the biopic of Dicaprio's character.  I didn't find his scenes all that compelling or interesting, and that's a core part of the movie.  Pitt and his dog pretty much carry the movie.
