    Discuss the latest movies we’ve watched.

    Saw Once Upon A Time In Hollywood last night. Absolutely loved it. Drags a little in the first 2 acts but the final act may be the best of Tarantino’s career. DiCaprio and Pitt are at the top of their game. Both of them should be in serious contention for an Oscar.

    A movie I will definitely purchase when it’s released on Blu-Ray. That last 1/2 hour was awesome and can’t wait to see it again. Nice to see a movie that’s not a sequel or comic book movie do well. I read it’s the first non-sequel/comic book movie this year to cross $100m domestic.

    The other thing about Tarantino movies is the soundtrack and how well he incorporates music into his movies. I’ve been singing Brother Loves Traveling Salvation Show for a few days now!

    Very entertaining movie.
    ****spoiler alert****

    My only criticism is with the revisionist history of the Manson murders. I know the events of the summer of 1969 were just used as a backstory here but the movie seems to be trivializing a pretty significant cultural event that probably warrants more serious analysis.

    I actually loved the ending. Throughout the whole last half of the movie I had that feeling of dread knowing what was going to happen to Sharon Tate. When Cliff Booth kicked the sh*t out of the Manson family I absolutely loved it. That feeling of dread was replaced with joy. In the theatre when the ending happened people were cheering and laughing, the weight of knowing what was coming was lifted and the audience enjoyed this alternative reality. The movie is called Once Upon a Time.....which is how all fairytales start. This was Tarantino’s fairytale ending to how he wished that night had ended. That’s one of the reasons Tarantino is so great. He goes to places most writers/directors won’t.

    It was fun, no doubt. I laughed my head off at the ending.

    If you're looking for any serious insight on the Manson killings, you're going to be disappointed. I've always been intrigued by them. It seemed to be the exact point in time where the idealist hippie movement of the 60's turned all weird, dark, and creepy going into that strange period of time known as the 70's.

    You know if you want to see a movie on the Manson family, get the original "Helter" Skelter" as the guy that played the 1970's original movie Steve Railsback had Manson down pact and pulled off a very convincing part. Really if it did not give those who saw it nightmares, do not know what is.

    Spoiler Alert:

    Pitt's character was suppose to be a Green Beret there.

    Went to see the second part of “It,” last night. I think it did a decent job of hitting all of the key parts from the book, and it was a satisfying enough ending. The movie may not have been great, but it was certainly good and at least they didn’t screw anything up.

    I’d give it a solid “B” or “B+.”

    I think it’s right around the same, Kontra.

    I thought they did a better job with the clown this time, although one could argue that they didn’t show quite enough of him. At the end of the day, it wasn’t as evil a story as I would’ve liked, with a focus more on the main storyline of the people coming together, etc.

    I think they did an okay job of telling the story and staying true to the book, but it’s not something that necessarily scared me as much as I would’ve liked.

    Saw the first It last week on Netflix. Wife and I thought it was ok, but not great. Didn't excite us enough to check the next one out in the theaters.

    Will likely check out Rambo: Last Blood with my buddies in the next few weeks. Thought the last one was done well and for guys my age Rambo brings in those feelings of nostalgia, remember my friends Dad taking us to see Rambo 2 in the theaters when we were kids in the 80's.

    Saw Rambo tonight. It was ok, but not great. Had some good action sequences where Rambo kicks ass, but wasn’t as good as the prior films in the series.

    *** Spoilers ***




    Why the hell did they kill off the niece. He still could have gone after the gang for kidnapping her, drugging her, prostituting her, cutting her.... after she dies and then Rambo lies dying at the end I’m sitting there thinking what the hell was the point. Both end up dead and he never finds peace. Horrible way to end the series.

    I watched District 9 randomly this morning. Not what I was expecting.

    It was great. I'm guessing since it was an Indy movie, and not Hollywood I'm not surprised I enjoyed it. Wikus' arc was very believable as he didn't have a 100% turnaround on his prejudice of the prawns....until the very end. I also wonder if Ridley Scott is a fan... with the whole goo subplot being very similar to Prometheus/Alien Covenant.

    I could not disagree more. Those murders were depressingly horrific -- no way could they have been realistically portrayed with Tarantino-style dark humor. Actually, I can't imagine them being portrayed cinematically in ANY context that could be considered "entertaining." The revisionist history version was perfect for this movie, hence its title.

    Somewhat agree. I don't think you could make a tragic event like that entertaining except with revisionist history.

    It was funny and everything. There's just something about revisionist history that bugs me, even when it should be obvious that's what's happening. The "slippery slope" thing, I guess.
