The Oscar Project
Quentin Tarantino's 9th film shows up in cinemas this weekend as the only major wide release. Chances are it won't be as big as any of the recent releases from Disney, but will hold its own.
There are also a few documentaries releasing this week that stand a good chance of getting an Oscar nomination this time around so keep your eyes out for them as well.
Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood
It's time for the 9th film from Quentin Tarantino and we get Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt together for the first time on screen. The story is one of classic Hollywood, something that Tarantino has a tremendous love for. DiCaprio stars as Rick Dalton, a Hollywood star who pals around with his best friend and stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt). Dalton realizes/discovers he's turning into a "has-been" at the same time Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) arrives as a rising star.
It's important to note that Tarantino has claimed that he will only ever direct 10 films, and this is his ninth. His list of feature film directing credits reads like a who's who of films many consider to be modern classics. From his first forays into directing with Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, to the Kill Bill duology and the more recent films Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight, he has littered Hollywood with excellent movies just like the bodies lying dead on the floor in his films.
I'm just a film buff who wants to watch great movies. Where else to find the best, than the list of those nominated by the Academy each year?
