    Sling Blade

    Holds up well for me. 8/10

    Thornton’s transformation to play Karl was amazing. 
     

    I really enjoy the language and phrases. 

    John Ritter and J. T. Walsh (creepy guy in the nervous hospital) both died at the age of 54.

    Hoping to catch jojo this week. Then will only have little Women left.

    After not wanting to see it all year, wife now wants to watch Hollywood (after the Oscars last night). So I guess I’ll be seeing that a 3rd time sometime this week lol.

    This encouraged me to watch this again, as it has been forever.  How on earth did BBT not get the Oscar for this?  His transformation is better than anyone I can even think of.

    • Parasite - 9.5/10
    • Once Upon...Hollywood - 9.8/10 (even better the 2nd time)
    • Ford vs Ferrari - 8.8/10

    I can’t believe FvF doesn’t even crack my top 3 of the best picture noms. What a year for movies. And Bale was robbed. Absolutely deserves Best Supporting Actor nomination (unless he was the lead, then deserves Best Actor nomination).

    I really liked FvF, haven't watched Once Upon or Parasite, will have to soon.

    Midsommar last night. Really enjoyed it. My gf, not so much. I'm going to give Hereditary a go soon.

    Once upon a time seems to be a love or hate sort of movie.

    I am in the latter, in my opinion it was horrible and the only time I seriously considered leaving the theater.

    Rio ... again.  For probably the 100th time.  0/10

    I probably used to give it a higher score, but after seeing it this many times, I basically just hate the movie.

    What did you not like? Genuinely curious. Leo’s 2nd best performance imo. Pitt was fantastic. The plot was great. The production design was as good as QT has ever been. Finally, QTs message, while subtle, was extremely well written/done.

    I thought Pitt and Jack Dawson did a good acting job, but I found the plot long, boring and very uninteresting.  I believe it had a chance of being very interesting but man it just drug on and to us was very unentertaining.    

     

     I didnt really realize it until after the movie thought that there isnt a QT movie that i like so maybe it is just his style.

    We went with three other couples and all 8 of us really didnt like it (guess its true that birds of a same feather flock together) and by reading reviews it really was a love or hate it sort of movie.

    That's where I'm at.  Although Leo was good, his character was beyond boring and dragged the whole film way down. If you deleted all of his scenes, then you'd have about half of a very entertaining movie.

    Anyone seen Last Full Measure at all?  Wasnt released in my area and wondering if I should seek it out.

    Asinine. Second best role to Wolf.

    That’s fair, and I do think it’s a QT is a love or hate. In fact, I love and hate his movies haha. But I think the only boring part was when Tate was watching her own movies...yet it was necessary for the plot. QT was trying to convey how Dalton was a former star who was aging and on the downside of career, while Tate was loved by everyone, young and could do no wrong. That she was going to be Dalton in 25 years, if not for the Manson Family murdering her.

    When taking a broader look at what QT wanted to get across, no scene is wasted. That said, some can come across as boring if you don’t like his style (I frankly love it most of the time).

    I also love QT for always being original. He shoots his movies his way. He writes original plots. He does it all the way he wants and doesn’t rely on adaptations or comic books to make incredible movies, which I think it to be applauded in 2020.

    Im also someone who was pretty fascinated by Manson and the Manson Family. This Alt-Universe was fun to be apart of, for me.

    I’m also curious if you liked Inglourious Basterds. Which, imo, is the gold standard  for movie making the last decade+.

    As for QT, my tiers of excellent, fine, awful:

    • Basterds
    • Django
    • OUATIH
    • Jackie Browne
    • Pulp

     

    • Hateful Eight
    • Reservoir Dogs

     

    • Kill Bill
    • Kill Bill 2
    • Death Proof

     

    Fri, Feb 14, 2020 11:35 PM

    IMHO:

    1) Pulp Fiction

    2) Django Unchained

    3) Ingloriuous Basterds (almost 2b)

    4) Resevoir Dogs

    5) Jackie Brown,

    6) Hateful8

    7) Kill Bill

    8) Dusk til Dawn (Hayek FTW)

    NA: Death Proof or Once Upon Hollywood

    FYI, he did not direct. Not considered one of his “10” films.

    I think everyone gets that.  It's not some great insight (not you, I mean QT) or even that original as a story line goes. IMO, entirely uncompelling.  Watching Dalton work his craft wasn't necessary to the story, and all it really served was to drag the movie out another 20 minutes. I guess if QT had made office space, we would have gotten 20 minutes watching Kevin fill out TPS reports.

    I liked kill bill movies.
