Sideways, but with commentary from Giamatti and Church.  A few nuggets of insight, but it was basically Giamatti and Church in a competition to see who could wordsmith the most obscure references.  Church won.

yeah it and Django weren't necessarily bad, they just went full off the rails at some point. bit of M Night Shyamalan imo, 'okay here's this....it works, and now THE TWIST'   ...from what i'm gathering Once Upon A Time is the same thing so, yeah....never been big on Tarantino anyway.

Once Upon A Time is a very significant shift in tone more towards his first three movies and it’s really good.

I rewatched "There will be blood" and watched "The Master" for the first time. Awesome films. I was surprised how much I enjoyed The Master.

I love when he's talking about Pinot Noir, but actually about himself. Great script for this film.

Went to see Ad Astra.  Visually it was pretty nice but everything else was pretty mehh.   I can only watch Brad Pitt quivering so much.

really excited about this. the translation to 3d looks incredibly- just misses some of the early 2d charm like lupin constantly kicking zenigata in the opening credit (that gravity defying floating on air and repeated thing that's not realistic or lupin jumping into bed with fujiko only to get kicked in the face cartoon transition queue)

 And are the reviewers who are critiquing it on a kinda identity politics basis full of bs, or at least are over-exaggerating?

People are reading shit into everything these days. It’s a movie. Not a diary. It's a movie about the poor and unfortunate people  who are run over by the big guys.
 

But it is 100% Joaquin Phoenix’s movie. He carries the entire movie on his shoulders with ease and extreme grace. He’s amazing.

In The Tall Grass -1000/10

This is one if the worst movies I’ve watched in ages. The acting was god damn ludicrous.

Saw Joker earlier today, Joaquin Phoenix did an amazing portrayal, it was a good film.

It's definitely not your typical "comic book" movie, it's more of a drama. Very dark, unsettling, and poignant, as a Joker-focused tale should be. The media making a scene of this movie is pretty ridiculous also, the violent scenes were striking, but it wasn't gratuitously violent. I also don't think you're supposed to route for Joker in the movie, sympathize yes, his story is rather tragic, but he's still the bad guy in the end.

Saw the Joker movie tonight. I’ve gotta say, it’s more or less exactly what I expected. Well crafted. Joaquin delivers. Great score. Well shot. All of that. 

On the flip side, this is not the movie we need to see right now. It’s a fundamentally crass, anarchistic film that litters the screen with images that can be confused for statements but ultimately burns any shred of a philosophy to the ground. I know. It’s a comic book movie.  But the optics of this movie are fucked. 


I’m going to go watch the Great British Bake Off now and cleanse my palate. 
 

ALSO... (actual spoilers)

Spoiler

What’s up with turning young Alfred into a dick and having some random clown kill Bruce Wayne’s parents???
I’m no expert, but that isn’t cannon, is it?? I mean, I thought the most crucial point of Batman’s life story was Joker killing his parents.
