I caught Daddy’s Home with my niece and nephew, my love for Will Ferrell fully restored with Get Hard, which I watched on a plane and loved like I’d love a puppy.
I also got the Hateful 8 a week or so back when on a brief trip and I have to say that the second half saves the first half, but the first half really is incredibly slow. Tarantino is my favourite director. I love even the stuff you don’t, every frame just being a constant inspiration to me. It’s also maybe Sam Jackson’s best ever character and best ever performance. Holly Hunter comes very close to stealing this movie and she really is both utterly brilliant and terrifying, but it’s Sam I think who blew me away most. The guy’s just the best and I think he’s become my favourite actor since he told me how excited he was reading Silver Surfer #1 back in the day. He’s one of us as well as being in around half of my all-time top ten movies.
You guys get out over the weekend?
