Once Upon a Time in Hollywood...

Post by Shapecharge » Mon Aug 05, 2019 2:11 pm

Wife and I saw it on Saturday. We both totally loved it. Leonardo and Brad are aging well and did a superb job. There appears to be a little bit of fan-boy angst over a scene with Bruce Lee but I thought it was absolutely hilarious and we can talk more about that if need be. It's got Dan Inosanto and Bruce Lee's daughter riled up but whatevs. Shape gives this movie a massive two thumbs in while wearing gold nugget rings with a painful unnatural spread.

NaFraud, she's only 29 you lecherous deviant! Get your tissues and lotion together and set down to watch "Suicide Squad" if you dig her. She naked quite a bit if I remember correctly in "The Wolf of Wall Street."

She is so freaking gorgeous, but she's got an ass like a 60yo Korean woman. Pancake city. Somebody forgot to install the blades on that turd cutter.

What did you expect, it's Tarantino. A house of stacked bricks of style and panache unconnected by any mortar of meaning or philosophy and ready to collapse at the slightest breath of thought.

Yup, that describes 1969

The three stars deliver Star Power. The story and pace and building conflict is slow, boring, and not up to Tarantino’s reputation. Tarantino has lost his Fastball, his curve is predictable and flat, and his change up while still top notch is all he has left. The last scene with the flamethrower, pit pull, and Mansonites is a ninth inning save after getting shutout for 8 innings.

Do not pay full price. Maybe a matinee or wait for Netflix. Maybe better if you are high.

Get out of here with this shit...I realize besides everything else everyone is an expert at here in our diminished IGx world, cinematic critique is yet another thing along with national defense policy, grilling, spec-op gunfighting, and 3-card monty.

Virtually any reasonable professional film critic has praised this film and IMDB gives it an 8.4/10 and Rotten Tomatoes 85 percent. I will not stand for this hate! It's a goddamn good movie you fuckin' cretins. For fucks sake.

I tend to agree. I was waiting for an hour for the movie to start and then found myself nodding off. Lots of pointless vaguely connected scenes culminating at the end with the "action" worthy a teenage flick. The dog was cute.

I reckon Pulp Fiction was Tarantino's peak.

I enjoyed Death Proof.

Shape, these kids were zygotes in 1969. We lived it. Shit rings true.

Robbie is absurdly pretty. It was goofy how well-acted it was.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

Margot Robbie is a total smokeshow, but the crazy thing is she is not even in the same league as Sharon Tate.
