    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    There was once a time where movies weren’t in my life. That all changed when I watched The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. I was six or seven years old when I first heard Ennio Morricone’s score. The first odd and jangling notes pierced my ears. It wasn’t like any film score or any music I’d ever heard before. Whistles, whips, coyotes howling, choirs chanting incomprehensibly, and electric guitars. I would hear Morricone’s music every time I revisited that…

    Brutal and expertly crafted. Was in awe of the long magnificently choreographed action sequences and the wonderful 35mm photography. Every performance was on point (even Nicole Kidman delivered) and the ferocity never let up. However, and this may be biased as I read Robert Eggers faced some trouble with the studio) I felt this film needed to be a good twenty minutes longer. Everything felt rushed and with another twenty minutes it would’ve really felt like a great classic slow…

    This is one super fucking cool movie.

    Wow. Poitier is a god. Ruby Dee brings everything to the table. Truly one of a kind. And Harry Belafonte knows damn well how to be the comic relief.

    Super entertaining and brilliantly crafted. Never a dull moment. Runs like liquid butter.

    So I was invited to a press screening by my friends dad Jeremy WarnerBros. and got to see the movie early.

    Total trash. Main character is a raging sexist and Robert Pattinson plays a Latino character (how has NOBODY talked about this). Nolan just jumped the shark. Impressive visuals of course and love the 70mm photography. The celluloid look matched with Nolan’s blockbuster visuals is always a treat, I just wish it wasn’t accompanied with Nolan’s bland racist and sexist…

    There’s a moment in Quentin Tarantino’s penultimate magnum opus where we stop. Up till then, while being a slow moving film, Tarantino gives you the chance to relish spending time with his characters. We follow Cliff as he fixes Rick’s antenna and picks up a shady hitchhiker to bring her to a chilling movie ranch inhabited by Charles Manson and his followers. We get to see Rick Dalton blubber his way through a day on set and come to terms…
