An absolutely punishingly long movie. I genuinely thought it was about to end, checked my watch and saw that there was still over an hour & 30 mins to go & almost crumpled to the floor like the King himself.
However, Austin Butler IS the real deal & the final performance of Unchained Melodies brought the house down. It’s nice to know that stock I bought after Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is going to pay out handsomely *cackles like satanic Fat Bastard Tom Hanks*
I had been watching stuff on TCM earlier in the day & when I turned my tv back on this was playing at the exact moment when Scorsese was getting in the back of the cab. Needless to say I finished the whole thing.
I also need to pitch HBO Max on EASY ANDY: A Taxi Driver Story where the big IP crossover event happens in episode 4 when Easy Andy travels to Boston and links up with Jackie Brown from The Friends of Eddie Coyle. An absolutely terrifying cgi Peter Boyle would of course play a crucial role to the delight of the fans
