Is Top Secret the one with the giant phone perspective gag?

Isn't it his eye in the magnifying glass?

There’s also a giant wristwatch gag.
Top Secret is excellent, a favourite of mine from childhood. The songs are hilarious and Val is great as Nick Rivers. I could quote the film all day but how could anyone not love the introduction of the French resistance (haven’t we met somewhere before monsieur)?

Once Upon A Time...In Hollywood

It's self indulgent and over long but it's jolly good fun.

Brad Pitt steals every single scene he's in and it's nice spotting some of 'the old gang' (Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell etc...Tim Roth was in it to but his scene (s) were cut).

Quentin's foot fetish continues and Margot Robey is there to look stunning (and she does) but has barely 7 or 8 sentences in the whole film (it's probably more than that but it doesn't seem so at the time).

Overall a solid 4 out 5 but could have done with losing about 40 minutes but, hell, it's all entertaining enough.

And curiously bar the bad language, it could have been rated a 12 A until the last 10 minutes which are a riot.

Into the Spider-verse

I liked it but was disappointed with yet another ‘special effect wave of ill defined peril’ finale. I’m really sick of these in Superhero/Sci Fi/horror films.
Lovely animation and super stylish though.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood continues the historical revisionism Tarantino started in Inglorious Basterds but is arguably more successful this time around.

Great performances, with the undercurrent of melancholia from the film's subject matter- specifically the passing of the golden age of Hollywood into to more cynical times, making it quite moving.

Stunning photography and a fantastic soundtrack too.

A real return to form from Tarantino.

Agreed.

Although if I had read this before I had seen the movie I would have been seriously pissed at you for spoiling this for me.

Just saying.

I was dreading watching the 'last day' as I did not want to see Tate murdered. So the end for me was great. Glad it was spoilered.

He's talking about your post. Its pretty spoilery if te person reading it can put 2 and 2 together - I'd get a mod to edit it.

I know what the film's about from a couple of newspaper reviews, and I've read that post a dozen times now and I can't see any spoilers. Certainly hasn't told me anything, but my arithmetic must be bad.

There's zero spoilers there IMHO, the trailers pretty much state it's another bit of historical revisionism from Tarantino and at this point he's so synonymous with that framing device it should be expected.

Saw Hobbs and Shaw last night and it was daft as a back of bricks but god it was a fun time. The series has evolved to the point where it's clearly just Jojos Bizarre Adventure by way of M.A.S.K and is having a blast with it.

Hobbs and Shaw is daft fun but I had a laugh when the girl I work with who watched it said she didn't like it as it was too unbelievable compared to the Fast and Furious movies she absolutely loves!!!  Too unbelievable 😂😂😂😂 compared to Fasat and Furious!!!!

I can only guess it's already been moderated, as I couldn't detect any spoilers either.

It hasn't been moderated and I specifically avoided any spoilers-bizarre!  :o
