    Only Lovers Left Alive

    ★★★★

    Still beautiful on rewatch. So much texture, it's crazy. Love the atmosphere, music, dialogues and performances. Maybe a bit heavy on the references and the vampire tropes but it all works. Wasikowska, Yelchin and Wright are great in their small parts too.


    Need to watch Broken Flowers asap 🌺

  • The Meyerowitz Stories

    The Meyerowitz Stories

    ★★★½

    Kinda neat. Normally don't like Stiller or Sandler, but both really work in this! Punch drunk love level, really. 
    A little long at times but enough laughs and substance to keep it going. Seems like something that would reward some rewatches too, pretty dense at times.

    ★★★★★

    Jup, still wholly awesome on rewatch. So rewatchable with the terrific world building and great performances. 
    Only issues seem to relate to some elements carried over from the original and what seem like dangling threats for potential sequels. What's in this one, however, is near perfect sci-fi.

  • The Hateful Eight

    The Hateful Eight

    ★★★★½

    Zero regrets about driving 400km to see this in 70mm. Got a little introduction about the history of 70mm film and some of its merits before the start. Very cool experience, including the overture and intermission to set the mood (didn't realize until now that intermissions aren't standard in the US, they are here).

    This film obviously looked great, obviously has stellar dialogue and obviously has awesome performances. Scene after scene of trademark Tarantino suspense building until an explosion of spectacular violence breaks out, just to start building up to another.

    Pretty much loved everything about it.
