: been three and a half years since I last saw this. I absolutely love this film, with each viewing more and more. It's just fantastic all around. The performances are top notch. Waltz gets the most meaty role but Pitt, Kruger, Laurent, Fassbender, Brühl like everyone
in this film is great. When I first saw this film I had some issues with the way the Chapter's chopped up the narrative* but I was so incredibly wrong. It's amazing. *i.e. them taking quite a while but it works
Richardson's work is beautiful, with trademark lit table of course. The use of music is spot on, Tarantino's humour works so well. It's just, flawless. At the same time, it convincingly looks like the 1940s while also feeling timeless. This film is already ageing damn fine but hell, it's going to age better and better. I think, like Tarantino puts so himself, this is his masterpiece.
Seeing Once Upon a time in Hollywood
tomorrow! I have only seen the first trailer and I don't remember if I saw all of that. I know the premise but I have no idea what the plot is and I haven't been spoiled. Very excited to see it. Pitt was so fucking good in Inglourious Basterds
and DiCaprio was amazing in Django Unchained
, so I'm pretty stoked to see them work with Tarantino again in Once Upon a time in Hollywood
. I'm seeing it on 35mm. I heard someone say they used 8mm and 16mm, too.
Spider-Man: Far From Home
: I don't think they'll ever get on Raimi's Spider-Man 2
level. Nevertheless, this was still very entertaining. Gyllenhaal was superb and Zendaya was delightful. I'm convinced she's the real deal. Her performance in HBO's Euphoria
alone proves that but then delivering something like this, which couldn't be more different, proves that even further. Can't wait to see her in Dune
I must say that while I liked how they adapted Mysterio's powers in the film, I can't help but being baffled by how astonishing* the VFX could look in one shot and downright terrible in the next, all throughout the film. Not to forget those couple of reshoot scenes... Basically Justice League
level bad green screen fixing lol
Scary Stories to tell in the dark
: This was fun, lightweight horror. Quite liked the practical effects.
