    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    There was once a time where I wasn’t into movies. Believe it or not. That all changed when I watched The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. 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 film (so 3-4 times…

    Growing up, I was often asked about my opinions on movies and maybe some recommendations here and there. I was a lot of people’s go to guy on a take or view on certain films. I never really had a problem with it. People usually liked my opinions and took my recommendations seriously. In my almost 19 years of life, there has been one movie that has haunted each step I take (warning this essay will be exaggerated for dramatic…

    I’ll be honest. This film starts off quite wobbly. Some bad acting and a weak script. However …..when it’s Clint and the kid on the road thirty minutes in? It finds its footing. And boy is it good.

    There’s a portion in the film where Clint and the kid lay low in a small Mexican village and befriend the local cafe owner. Some romance brews and we just spend time with the characters learning to love and be loved. There’s…

    Pure mastery. Overwhelmingly beautiful. Maurice Jarre you genius. Just a wonderful night at the movies.

    70mm Technicolor print at the Museum of Moving Image. Thanks Clint for the tickets.

    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…
