Shitty Movie Detail: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Cliff Booth is referred to as a war veteran, a subtle nod to his inglorious basterd days. This would seem to be an inconsistentcy, that is, Brad Pitt was Aldo Raine in WW2 but is now Cliff Booth. It is not. This is because both Inglorious Basterds and Once Upon a Time in Holywood are revisionist history films. Plus, there was a deleted scene, which was never shot, that connected the two seemingly disparate characters. In it, Aldo “Brad Pitt” Booth cuts a swastika into Charles Manson’s forehead saying, “No, THIS is my masterpiece.”

    1. Happy New Year, Nadine! I hope you had a wonderful holiday.

      I’m just getting back into the swing of things myself. I had the last two weeks off. I spent them watching all the Star Wars stuff (Movies and TV shows) in order to close out the saga in style. I mention this because I spend A LOT of time watching movies and TV shows.

      As for the buttons working, when I wasn’t watching stuff I was working on getting my new laptop up and running, as well as getting familiar with the new OS. I switched from Mac to Windows. The rencent posts have been on the new machine. Mayhaps that’s why the buttons are working.

      Or maybe I’ve appeased the WordPress Gods. Either way, glad they’re working.

      (for now.)

      Ha.

      2. The switch has been a bit of a slog. That is, it’s been like retraining muscle memory. I’ve been a Mac user since the early 90s. One foot in front of the other, right?
