I want to get to Shazam soon. It looks fun.
And fun it was. O0 The earlier movies in this franchise were so dark, so it's nice to see they've lightened them up, and I like the results.

I also saw Missing Link, the stop-motion animated movie, recently. I didn't know what to expect going in, other than the trailer looked fun. The movie was better than I expected.

I've always liked some of the various incarnations of Nancy Drew (like the movies from the late 1930s and the 1970s TV series with the Hardy Boys), so I checked out the newest movie version Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase. Nancy is very modernized here. She's a skateboarder and gets into some trouble, until she finally starts to put her energy into something more productive, which is investigating an old woman's house who complains about seeing and experiencing weird supernatural things. I liked it. The movie was made direct to DVD, but did get a limited theatrical run last month prior to its DVD release.

I saw Avengers: Endgame last night and liked it a lot as well. One of the best of the whole franchise (Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man are other favorites of mine).

After recently rewatching the first three Toy Story movies, I followed it up by going to the theater to see the new Child's Play. You play with the toys, and then the toy plays with you. :D ;D

I was just a kid when the original Child's Play came out, but I didn't see it until years later (I owned a My Buddy doll after all). The original movie is quite good, and this new one is a good remake. It manages to be both funny and bloody. The story is updated. Instead of the soul of a killer being put into the doll, the doll is created to be an interactive toy that can walk and talk and is programmed to learn schedules and patterns.

So what’s the deal with this new Tarantino movie always being advertised as “The 9th film by Tarantino”? Any other film is always advertised as “A film by” so and so. Whoever is the director. I’m finding it very strange indeed.

Tarantino has announced his intention to retire from making movies after his 10th film, so I suspect the announcement has something to do with that.

Tarantino is still young. I hope he doesn't stop after the next film. Looking forward to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood later this week.  O0

I've either read or heard from a friend that Tarantino wants to write books after he's finished with movies. I've only seen his work through Death Proof.

I'm trying to wrap my mind around him doing a Star Trek movie.

10/10, don't miss seeing this one, and make sure to see it in the theater.  O0

(Not sure this goes in this thread, or the "Movies I've Seen This Week" thread. I really don't want to discuss it until it's been out long enough for everyone to see it.)

How violent is it Matt? I usually avoid Tarantino's movies because of how much blood and gore they typically contain.

Definitely see it. It's just great, and not as violent as most of his films.

I don't want to give any spoilers -- it needs to not really be discussed until you've seen it. However, I'll say one thing that was impressive -- so don't read the following if you want to go in with no information at all...

Back in the 70's, I read Helter Skelter and I found it really fascinating, and read/watched everything about Manson and the killings. So I have knowledge of little things that most people might not who would watch this movie. One was that Abigail Folger was wearing a white robe the night of the murder. There was so much blood, the police on the scene were shocked it wasn't a red robe. In the movie, she's seen wearing that white robe. It's just a pull-away shot, but Tarantino put her in it. Most people would never notice that, but those little details are amazing. There's an intercom system at the Tate residence that he recreated -- an exact match for the one that was there the night of the murder. I remember seeing a picture of it in the Helter Skelter book with a bloody thumbprint. He didn't have to have that level of detail, but he did. Everything about it -- the Spahn ranch, the man who owned the ranch (where the Manson family lived) - all true to the facts we know. And then he built a story around it with Pitt and DiCaprio and wound it in and around the factual Tate/Manson stuff. And it works. It's perfect.  He captured 1969 in little ways that ring extremely true. And I loved that he would show the people driving the cars from the back seat, as he would have seen it when he was growing up in 1969 (same as I saw it from the back seat). I loved the low ceilings on the houses, every little detail. And the acting is out of this world from DiCaprio and Pitt.

You are so right Matt. I absolutely loved Once Upon A Time In Hollywood...
DiCaprio, Pitt and Robbie are awesome..

Anyone else seen it yet ?

It's a must for the big screen... I was lucky enough to see a 35mm print in London's Barbican. Absolutely gorgeous
To look at..

I originally saw it in a digital format, then found it was being shown in 35mm at another theater and saw it again.

Another outstanding acting performance goes to the Pit Bull (Sayuri):



I've always liked these dogs, and now I want one. But seriously, without giving away any spoilers, this dog did a star job!  O0

EDIT:  Actually, I had no idea that Sayuri had actually won an award for her peformance in this film -- at Cannes:


Quote
Sayuri, a 3-year-old American pit bull terrier, is already the film's first cast member to win an award for her work.

In May, Tarantino accepted the Palm Dog Award on behalf of 55-pound Sayuri at the annual Cannes Film Festival, where "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" was an official selection. (Sayuri wasn't in attendance, so Tarantino arrived with another dog in her place.)
