    Jojo Rabbit

    ★★★

    I've always said Hugo Boss makes the best movie costumes. Colour me entertained, I could have lived without the German versions of Beatles & Bowie but this wasn't the ADL funded, anal political correctness-fest I'd feared from the trailer & synopsis. The young actors playing Jojo and his chubby mate Yorki totally nailed it, I could have watched those two for another hour easily. So did Sam Rockwell hamming it up as the Col Klink (Hogans Heroes) like captain. Sadly Taika Waititi's…

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★

    Tarantino turns an American nightmare into a Hollywood dream. Messy plot, weaving elements of the Manson family murders with fictitious has-been actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his gofer/stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) free-falling careers.

    "Listen little Stevie King" - Wade (Rainn Wilson)

    Essentially South Parks - Pink Eye episode without the Hitler & Wookie costumes and Trey & Matts inventive situational wit. Don't get me wrong Rainn Wilson beating & torching the undead shit out of the kids was fucking hilarious, trouble was the remaining several characters were like his straight man. It didn't spread the funny. Shame because it had Breaking Bads Badger and Losts Hurley who are genuinely funny guys wasted in uneventful support roles.
