    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.





    Tho I really did like the part where USC bragged about their ~35 mm~ copy of the movie but it lost audio like 10 minutes in and they couldn’t get it back so we just watched it digitally
