As a follow-up to the Chernobyl HBO series you should consider reading Midnight in Chernobyl.

Finally saw the latest Quentin Tarantino movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

I don't wanna spoil it, but it's impossible to talk about it AT ALL without somewhat spoiling it. So... I hereby notify you of this...

SPOILER ALERT. If you haven't seen the movie and are planning to at some point, READ NO FURTHER.

Otherwise, keep scrolling and read on.






















It's kinda the same M.O. as Inglorious Basterds, a blatant retelling and rewriting of history. And honestly, I found the somewhat irreverent rewriting of WW2 history somewhat less offensive than this. It's basically a rewriting of the Manson family murders. In the movie, the Manson family hippies go to the wrong house and get killed deader than hell in over-the-top gory Tarantino fashion.

Tarantino's a well known director in Hollywood. I gotta imagine he's certainly met Roman Polanski at some point. And yet he still had the balls to make this fucking odd-as-hell movie. If I was Polanski or any of the family members of the people murdered by the Manson family, I'd be pretty upset about this movie using them as "characters" like this.

Other than that.... It's basically a 2.5 hour elaborate depiction of LA in 1969 complete with hundreds of classic cars, period costumed extras, and restored building fronts to look like they did in the 70's. Basically it's him reliving his favorite period in movies. And then you've got the couple of scenes with Margot Robie and some other chick where their goddamned FEET get propped up in close-up shots, because obviously, Tarantino is one of those fucking foot fetish weirdos. It's fucking gross.

Despite the fact that I liked the actors in the movie and the performances they gave, the movie itself was not good in my opinion. I like rewatching all his movies once every year or three. Kill Bill, Hateful Eight, Jackie Brown, etc. This one I don't think I'm gonna bother seeing twice. I couldn't even sit through the movie all at once like I normally do. I had to watch it in pieces on 3 different occasions because it was kinda boring and pointless. Rating it 1 to 10, I'd give it a 5. Without the big name big budget actors giving great performances, this movie would COMPLETELY SUCK and would barely get a 1.

Watch watching the last Marc Maron stand-up special on Netflix yesterday, End Times Fun. It was pretty meh. He was quite a different comic back in the 90's from what I remember. Now he's like a more-neurotic-than-usual type of jew comic. Not constantly side-splitting, but occasionally says something funny. I stress the "occasionally" part. ::)

But at the end, it recommended watching his other Netflix series "GLOW", which I had seen in the list on there before, but wasn't interested in watching it before. On accident, I hit play and then got too lazy to turn it off. And by the end of the first show, I was hooked, hehe.

Only on episode 5 of season 1 so far (theres 3 total seasons posted on Netflix currently). GLOW. I guess it's about the old all-female wrestling organization from the early 80's, Georgeous Ladies of Wrestling. It's pretty funny. Would recommend. 8/10. :thumbsup:

Back in January, Netflix came out with this 3-part Dracula series that looked interesting, so I added it to my list. Been watching it the past few days.

Here's the most accurate synopsis of it you'll ever read:

Episode 1: "Not completely terrible. Certainly not terrific. Maybe it gets better."

Epsiode 2: "UM........ WHAT THE HELL?"

Episode 3: "WHAT THE SHIT IS THIS!?! This is so retarded. I want my money back."

If it would've been a classic typical Dracula retelling, that would've been just fine. But no, they had to be "original" and jazz it up and bring it into the modern era with Dracula using a fucking smart phone and contacting his lawyer Renfield by email. ::) Kill me now.

If you get a chance to see this... yeah, I'd suggest ya don't.

Nah. I used "img width=220" in the first tag. That's about max size for the box on my monitor, which is 1280x1024 old school non-widescreen square format.
