Once Upon A Time In Hollywood - great movie.I left the theatre glad that Tarantno has refused to grow into some sort of serious maturity.Seriously joyous creative energy fun.Had a few spots that might seem a bit flat to some People and some long complex scenes that dont seem to have much connection with the storyline.I thought Di Caprio carried those scenes and he is very good in this movie.I liked everything about it myself.Lots of west coast nostalgia trip,very relatable if you live in a west coast city with little to no connection to anywhere else.Lots of driving around in awesome cars with music just a little bit to Loud ! The soundtrack is all pre 1970 am radio playlist. 8.5 /10
Best performance of Leo's career IMO. His acting was the best thing about the movie for me...

...maybe apart from Brad Pitt tripping balls :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

Once Upon A Time - enjoyable, kooky and creative. Not his best I agree but it was a good love letter to earlier cinema and television. Funny little nuisances in the call back to some of his prior flicks. probably the most enjoyable Pitt has been in quite some time.

After some thought I'd like to revise my rating of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood to 8/10.

I just watched the Planet of the Apes Trilogy.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes. I enjoyed the premise of how the apes came to prominence. Well made film. The CGI is very well done. 8/10.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Bit of a let down. The power struggle between the apes was well written. I found the human characters were dull. 7.5/10.

War for the Planet of the Apes. The best of the 3. Woody Harrelson with a homage to Brando's brilliant Apocalypse Now performance was very good. There was more depth to this one with the stakes getting higher. As a fan from the 70s, I was a bit nerdy excited to hear that Caesar's son was called Cornelius who was the main character in the original movies and tv show. I imagine there will be a fourth instalment. 8.5/10

A Star is Born.

Loved it and finally made time to watch it last night. Lady Gaga is a screen gem and what a performance which had me totally immersed in her from start to finish and I hope she gets more movie roles. Bradley Cooper what can you say and he is fantastic as always.

Highly recommended to anyone who has not seen it but be prepared for the ending which is highly emotional and tugs at the heart strings massively and it had me chocked up for a bit when it ended. :(

Music is fantastic and really I could not fault anything at all.

10/10.

Agree. I loved it. Watched it Tuesday night. Absolutely fantastic. That ending was very emotional. My sister warned me about the ending and said you'll get angry. She was right. That ending got me sad, angry, choked up but also made me smile and happy at the song at the end given that she finished it. Was a rollercoaster of emotions, that's for sure. 😊

The 100 Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared. (2013)

A Swedish dark comedy about a man who goes on a crazy unplanned adventure on his 100th birthday - intercut with flashbacks that tell the story of his amazing life. His love of explosions serendipitously propels him on a life journey where he plays a part in some of the major events of the 20th century.

It's a lot of fun. You might like it if you liked Forest Gump or Being There.

7/10.

What ? Saying the ending is sad??

That is written everywhere on the film. It is not a spoiler unless you mention what happened to certain people IMO.

Saying a movie has a sad ending is not a spoiler.
It can be though. You already are giving the viewer the anticipation that something sad will happen.

Ive never seen Star is Born. Well aware since it came out its ending is sad.
Exactly.

It has been re-done 3 times now since the original 1937 film came out , in 1954 / 1976 and 2018 and they all roughly follow the same script.

Saying it is sad is hardly a spoiler and many reviews on IMDB start with " tears " or " There was not a dry eye anywhere " etc etc.

Happy to have it spoiler tagged if the Mods see fit but to me it does not seem like a spoiler without actually going into what exactly happens.
