    ★★★½

    Still a ton of fun. Looking forward to seeing part two now.

    So many great actors in all the little parts! Always great to see guys from The Wire, GoT or Billions in other things. That underground spa appeared in Billions too, I noticed. Awesome sets from start to finish.

    Been excited to see this one. Interesting movie, although it has a few little problems. 

    I felt that her life in New York could have used some more establishing to make the jealousy by both men more understandable. The fireworks scene also pushed the believability (I know, monsters) a bit far and some more perspective on the countless Koreans dying would have been nice.

    Regardless, a fun and surprising take on romcom tropes, gender and alcoholism. I don't generally like Ann Hathaway or Jason Sudakis but both were well cast. Especially Sudakis works perfectly. 

    Need to see Time Crimes now, I guess.

    ★★★★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.
