Default What I've Been Watching: The Catch-All Film Thread

Yes, there was something off about it generally, but not rotten off, just in a pacing, structure, relevance sense. It's not something I'd feel ripped off about as it's a definitely quality throughout. I, for example, would completely ignore any videos or 'news' pieces that used titles like "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is the WORST Tarantino film EVER and here's WHY" as disingenuous clickbaiting claptrap, but something more along the lines of "What I didn't get about Once Upon A Time In Hollywood" would certainly interest me.

Can we go into spoilers yet? Oh, ok, I'll use spoiler tabs.

@lackblogger:

Agree with pretty everything you said in the spoilers section. But I'm not sure I'd take the complaints as actual complaints, and I'm not saying you're complaining either, maybe more making observations.

For me it was very much an "experience" of the end of the 60s to 70s transition period, which I was not part of. I'm an 80s kid myself. So, I just let loose and enjoyed the ride.

Whenever I feel something isn't the way I feel it should be I like to ask myself why should it even be that way? Why can't it be different.

It is the kind of movie that you need to see in a certain state of mind I guess. I was very much tired when I saw it, and just let it wash over me. And very enjoyed myself. But I can see how other people can find it boring or meandering.

Only annoying thing about that night was that I saw it in a german cinema, but in the original english, and for some reason the germans seemed to find it overly funny. They pretty laughed at everything, even more serious scenes. I found that a bit weird, and sometimes annoying as I couldn't hear the lines.

Keanu Reeves is set to return to the world of The Matrix with a fourth chapter now officially confirmed.
Lana Wachowski, who created the franchise with sister Lilly, will also return as director along with original cast member Carrie Ann-Moss.

At least it's a sequel and not yet another reboot-remake-recycle.
