If you thought Toy Story 4 was unnecessary, boy do I have a summer movie for you
This has one of the dopest final scenes I’ve ever seen and the Hollywood satire stuff is pretty funny but the pacing and stakes SUCK. Also, Tarantino and DiCaprio is the most masturbatory pair to ever make a film.

Ron Howard is such a simple, meat-and-potatoes director and that somehow makes him the absolute perfect person to make this kind of film.
