    ★★

    Pretty colors. Well executed visuals. Everyone working on this is clearly committed to it. But it's kind of dull. It took a character that spent the last couple decades as whatever tonally worked as "worst person ever." (Whether it was a crappy bank robber in the 60s or Grant Morrison's literal evil incarnate) and made him into a wannabe everyman that we should all feel bad about. I don't want to feel bad about him.

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★

    Oddly slow for Tarantino. Was more about the TV world than movie world. I think we watched Brad Pitt drive across LA in it's entirety twice. Which is weird considering how long the movie is.

    Tarantino didn't quite capture the right balance with Tate as a symbol of Hollywood success. She's in it too often to just be a personification and not a character. He either had to give her more to do and let her become a character or less to do and keep her as a symbol.
