Watched Once Upon a Time in Hollywood yesterday.

I quite liked it, stories about old Hollywood you can tell QT is obsessed with the era and the type of movie making back then. The star power is high and the acting is excellent, shot well obviously as it's a Tarantino movie. The dialogue wasn't as punchy as his other movies but the setting probably didn't allow for it.

Plot wise there's nothing much going on though. The Manson stuff feels a bit tacked on, if you didn't know the original story I'm not sure it would make much sense.

Enjoyable 2.5 hours, not really any desire to watch it again.

Yeah I saw it with a mate who had no idea about the Manson family and the Tate murder so he didn't really understand the significance of it all. Still enjoyed it however.

My order will stand as

Reservoir Dogs
Pulp Fitction
Inglorious
Django
Hollywood
Hateful
Jackie Brown

(Yet to see Kill Bill)

I got half way through Reservoir Dogs today and fell asleep. Been pretty under the weather with a flu the past couple of days. Might restart it from the start seeing how highly you all rate it.

The day after I watched Once Upon a Time in Hollywood I stumbled onto Once Upon a Time in the West while flicking through the cable channels in Sri Lanka. Turns out it's a spaghetti Western.

Is that the one with Charles Bronson in it?

Spot on Alan Jo..... Alan Jones?!

Huh. He's tweeting up quite the storm on this case. His groupies don't seem happy with his stance.

Thank's to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, I'm now addicted to Hush by deep Purple and getting the urge to Start smoking again.
