Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino’s latest film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Al Pacino and Margot Robbie has a new trailer.

Ready or not, here is a 2.5 minute tease of a crime / drama / thriller about a TV actor and his stunt double, as they embark on making a name for themselves in the film industry….

So far, I must admit that Once Upon A Time In Hollywood has not quite garnered the same kind of excitement within me as Tarantino’s previous films. I blame that on this trailer appearing to be a slight change of pace / style compared to Tarantino’s other movies. Nevertheless, I still can’t wait to see how he’ll keep things interesting. I mean, the man has never before let us down, right?

MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS (2018): The Things I Liked…

There are a number of things including the history lesson that made me want to watch Mary Queen Of Scots; the story of the troubled relationship between Elizabeth I, Queen of England, and her cousin Mary Stuart. 

Considering that director Josie Rourke’s film is a costume drama, I’d hoped to see lots of sumptuous clothing design, in addition to very well written dialogue delivered by great actors. The film’s trailer even had me expecting something not too far from as epic as director Shekhar Kapur and Cate Blanchett’s Elizabeth (1998). Unfortunately for me, things didn’t quite transpire that way. 

Starring Margot Robbie, Saoirse Ronan, Joe Alwyn and Guy Pearce, there certainly were a handful of well designed costumes to enjoy. Yet it’s the few moments of beautiful visuals – especially outdoor cinematography that proved most arresting for me. Even more so than the dialogue and general story editing which I have to admit had me less engaged and interested than I envisioned I’d be.

It’s likely that in addition to finding the story more dull than anticipated, my interest also started to diminish in part because of how distressing sitting through the sexism and misogyny proved to be.

Just like my recent review of On The Basis of Sex (2018), another historical drama, it’s the part near the very end that I liked most about Mary Queen Of Scots. Meaning, everything from the moment the two royals finally meet. Actually, even with that said, I still choose the few visually arresting moments over the dialogue and this telling of the Elizabeth I and Mary Stuart story.

Watch Mary Queen Of Scots if you absolutely must. As for myself, I think it’s time I re-watched the great Elizabeth (1998).

The trailer for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino’s 9th movie is here and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie.

Set during the Charles Manson murders in 1969 in Los Angeles, a TV actor and his stunt double embark on an odyssey to make a name for themselves in the film industry….

Tarantino’s style and the cast are all the reason I need. Am I correct on thinking that this is Pitt and DiCaprio’s first movie together?

In The Lego Movie 2 – The Second Part, it’s just five years since everything was awesome, but now LEGO DUPLO® invaders from outer space are  wrecking everything and so the new threat must be dealt with.

Chris Pratt, Margot Robbie and Alison Brie star while Mike Mitchell and Trisha Gum direct…

I decided that I already I like this movie simply because of the title -especially the second part of it. Looking forward to the humour and silliness.

MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS (2018): New Trailer From Margot Robbie, Saoirse Ronan, Guy Pearce, Gemma Chan…

Read my spoiler-free movie review of  Mary Queen Of Scots.

From director Josie Rourke, Mary Queen Of Scots is a new historical drama about the relationship between Elizabeth I, Queen of England, and her cousin Mary Stuart.

Saoirse Ronan, Margot Robbie,  Guy Pearce, Joe Alwyn and Gemma Chan star…

First of all, isn’t it special and interesting that two Australian actors have had the opportunity to play Elizabeth I on the big screen twenty years apart? Cate Blanchett’s performance in Elizabeth (1998) is still so powerful and fresh in my mind.

When I first saw Margot in this trailer, I wasn’t sure… but then as the trailer played some more, my faith increased. The real main reason I can’t wait to see this one is the brilliant Ronan. I just want to see her deliver all the great dialogue that wonderful way she knows how. I’ll also be marvelling at the visual spectacle of it all, of course. 

Bring on the rivalry!

David Tennant, Brendan Coyle and Jack Lowden also star.

In Terminal, murderous consequences unravel in the dead of night as the lives of two assassins carrying out a sinister mission intertwine at the hands of a mysterious criminal mastermind hell-bent on revenge.

Margot Robbie, Simon Pegg, Max Irons and Mike Myers are directed by Vaughn Stein…

I don’t really know what’s going on in this trailer but I’m intrigued by the style and cinematography.

I generally like to see Margot Robbie win. I just wish that I wasn’t so very aware of her faux accent.

Terminal Release Dates: May 11th, 2018 (US)…

I, TONYA (2017): Good, Notable Performances…

I, Tonya, the true story of competitive ice skater Tonya Harding, and the unfortunate events that led to the end of her career is a movie well done. Directed by Craig Gillespie, the film is structured and captured in a way that’s engaging both in style and content.

I found myself impressed by all the performances. Robbie’s portrayal is memorable because of what she was able to achieve both physically and emotionally. There’s been talk of how impressive her solo scene in front of the mirror is and it really is. But the moment that moved me most takes place in the court room, immediately following sentencing.

As Hardings’ abusive mother, Allison Janney did brilliantly. This of course didn’t surprise me because Janney always delivers. Always. The hateful truth of her character was conveyed so perfectly in her entire being and very clearly through her eyes. 

Until this movie, I hadn’t really seen Sebastian Stan in much, except his work in Marvel’s Captain America and Avengers movies; because of what he did with his role as Hardings’ abusive husband, I’m now more interested than ever before in what he does next. Other highlights in Gillespie’s film include the well chosen music.

I say watch this movie for the performances and the story. I’ll in the meantime, busy myself with looking forward to Robbie’s next leading role in a drama.

I, TONYA (2017): New Trailer From Margot Robbie, Bobby Cannavale, Sebastian Stan, Mckenna Grace…

I, Tonya is the true story of competitive ice skater Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie), a skater who rose amongst the ranks at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Unfortunately for her, things change drastically when her ex-husband intervenes. Directed by Craig Gillespie, Bobby Cannavale, Sebastian Stan and Mckenna Grace also star…

I’m watching because it looks like this movie really allowed Robbie to act her socks off – so to speak and I personally can’t ‘wait to see how that unfolds. I’m also curious about the scary truth of this story.

Additional supporting cast includes Joey Thurmond, Bojana Novakovic, Allison Janney and Julianne Nicholson.

I, Tonya Release Dates: December 8th, 2017, (US); February 16th, 2018 (UK)…
