What’s the story: Los Angeles, August 1969. Has-been actor Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) grinds out a living guest starring on production line TV shows, backed up by his stuntman Cliff Booth (Pitt). Living next door to Rick is Roman Polanski’s wife Sharon Tate (Robbie).

What’s the verdict: Quentin Tarantino’s 9th movie (if you include Four Rooms and Grindhouse, this is actually the twelfth QT movie we’ve paid to see) sees him use a familiar title gimmick for a movie that dazzles and defies expectations.

His most relaxed movie since Jackie Brown, this ...

Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood – The Electric Shadows Podcast


Once upon a time in Middlesex, Robs Daniel and Wallis took a good, long look at Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie, Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood. What better way to tackle an expansive, rambling tapestry of a movie than by having a rambling, discursive chat of their own.

Over 70 minutes the two Robs look at everything from old Hollywood and the rise of the new Hollywood to how Tarantino seems to be making his own statement on women in Hollywood, the troubles of weaving real life tragedy into a wonderland fantasy, how the film treats real life figures Sharon Tate and Bruce Lee, and so much more. Including Burt Reynolds sad passing before he could appear in the film and the unblinking ferocity of Dakota Fanning.

Rob Daniel also muses on the usefulness of Instagram...

Episode 11 of The Electric Shadows Podcast, in which Rob Daniel & Rob Wallis tackle Suicide Squad, ponder the future of DC movies, realise they have spent around 15 hours this year watching and talking about DC movies, and Rob Daniel wonders why films now can’t be more like Crocodile Dundee II. Rob Wallis also gets warm and fuzzy with Finding Dory and Rob Daniel is mightily impressed with chilled out entertainer David Brent in Life on the Road.

The lowdown: Martin Scorsese once again proves he’s Hollywood’s most dazzling movie magician with a drug and sex fuelled cautionary tale of corporate greed that is a blast to watch but you wouldn’t want to live there. DiCaprio delivers an astonishing, vanity-free performance as grade-A scumbag Jordan Belfort, a stockbroker who makes Gordon Gekko look like Robin Hood...
