Thread: The "I Just Watched..." Thread

  1. Honestly I thought the first hour was better than the second hour. I liked driving around in LA listening to music. I could have gone another few hours like that.

    Pros:

    I really, really enjoyed it. I loved all the feet, and the guy who played Polanski was perfect and adorable. Like I want to marry him a little bit, but in that fantasy 1969 way. Dakota Fanning as Squeaky Fromme was probably the best casting decision Iíve ever seen. I literally yelped in the theater when I realized it was her.
    This is the only movie (I think ever, other than her own movies) that humanized Sharon Tate. Seriously, as much media as Iíve consumed on the Manson murders, this was the only fictional portrayal of her where I was getting upset about what was going to happen to her (sort of.) I donít think she was as hippie dippie in real life, but it was a nice fantasy.

    It was really beautiful. I like how they got a mini Adam Driver for Tex Watson.

    Cons:

    the Bruce Lee thing was dumb. They could have had him in the scene with Sharon and it would have been fine. The part with him and Brad was stupid except the yelling wife was funny.

    Iím a little sketch on current movies and their obsession with nostalgia. This isnít an indictment of ...Hollywood specifically, because Tarantinoís thing is nostalgia and thatís what heís good at. But itís somewhat troubling when the only worthwhile movie in mainstream theaters in ages is a love letter to one of Americaís most fucked up years.

    Neutral:

    Iím thinking this was intentional, but the guy who played Manson sucked. I think QT was trying to make him completely in the background, just a total nobody. That I liked, the actor didnít really capture anything special like Tex and the others did. Iím not sure how I feel about that.

    Brad was fine, but Iím actually a little questionable about Leo. Did we really need his story? Like, if we replaced his story with Bradís alone, and put him in the final final scene, wouldnít that be kind of a cooler ending? Like Hey Sharon, hey Jay. Yeah, Iíll come in and have a drink. Sounds cool. Roll credits. I keep playing alternate scenarios where either Brad or Leo arenít in it, and I donít actually feel like Leo added anything to the movie. Kind of a weird take, idk. Happy endings arenít my thing, I prefer ambiguity.

    Overall not Tarantinoís best, but it was really beautiful and an excellent watch.

  2. Everyone gushes about Pitt but Leo stole the show. His acting was sublime and the strength of the movie. Without it would be 90 min of Pitt acting as the easy going tough guy (yawn).

    Leo's scenes within the Western with the child actress was easily the highlight of the film.

  7. Oh look, Jackie Brown went up on Netflix today.

  8. Perfect timing, I have today off.

  9. Sooo maybe skip Hobbs and Shaw. It's a tad underwhelming.

  10. I really liked Once Upon a Time In Hollywood. There's a lot to chew on! The unreliable narrator Bruce Lee scene is a whole thing.
