    Love Means Zero

    ★★★★

    I think we have all met people like Nick Bollettieri. I'm actually fascinated by people like this. People who don't care about what anyone else thinks about them, who will do almost anything to get what they want.

    Most people like that fail tremendously. Nick Bollettieri, on the other hand, found a specific area to pour his efforts into and was able to have a lot of success. For him, it was training up tennis stars. And, I guess for…

    The Blackcoat's Daughter

    ★★★

    Gist: A fairly solid psychological horror movie

    Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood

    ★★★★

    Gist: Hilarious, almost plotless, really amazing movie.

    What an odd, but kind of amazing movie this is. Tarantino follows up his very disappointing(to me) Hateful Eight with one of his funniest and lightest movies yet. Lightest is the term I would use, but I do not mean it in any negative way. Light, fun, breezy, and one of his better movies.

    A slice of 1969 Hollywood, we follow both a washed up actor relegated to TV shows and his stunt…
