    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Having seen Inglourious Basterds, I knew not to expect historicity from Tarantino. I felt the suspense of not knowing what would happen and I enjoyed his reimagining of the Manson Family murders. This movie was surprisingly a slice of life kind of film much more than his typical revenge story.

    I especially appreciated Robbie's humanization of Sharon Tate. We see her insecurity, joy, and humanity. And in the end of this tale, she maintains it.

    By the end of this movie, I think Tarantino has clearly responded to Sadie's assertion that Hollywood taught the Manson Family to murder...

    Parkour!

    A Ghost Story

    a scared sheetless production

    This
    movie
    is
    so
    slow
    moving
    in
    its
    depiction
    of
    human
    loss.

    And
    ghost
    loss.

    (also the internet cut out and I still need to finish it)

    Gizmo was so adorable in that precious Jim Henson kind of way.

    I enjoyed how indulgent the bar scene with the Mogwais was. The writers had a brainstorming session and stopped short at the point where you usually start cutting ideas.
