    ★★★

    Wife says: that was such a weird f*cking movie

    Husband says: what a strange music video for Simon & Garfunkel.  Hey did you know that was Mel Brooks wife?  And now I know where Wayne’s World stole the church bit from.

    Overall, a very odd piece of 1960s cinema. Don’t think it could ever be remade.

    A slow burner.  And then the finale finishes exactly how you would expect Tarantino to approach an ending. But really well done.  Brandy was the best doggie. One of my favorite shots in the film was when all of the neon 60s lights were turning on as night fell in Hollywood.  Really evokes the period. 35mm viewing was an excellent choice and made me feel like I was back in time. RIP to Sharon Tate, her baby, and Luke Perry.

    Phenomenal soundtrack, lots of great family humor, and a fantastic story. Worth the 14 year wait!

    Bad Times at the El Royale

    ★★★★½

    This movie was awesome and played out exactly like a game of Fiasco.  A motel in Tahoe that straddles California and Nevada, fallen on hard times, sees a mixed up group of guests that soon find out dark secrets of some of the others.  Interspersed with flash backs and multiple character perspectives, this film will keep you on the edge of your seat and leave you wondering who will survive the night at the El Royale...
