    I’m pretty sure I would die for that adorable pooping/farting super pig.

    The Dark Crystal

    ★★★★

    Magnetic and captivating, the sheer level of puppetry in this movie still holds up nearly 40 years later. It’s a simple tale, but the characters are instantly memorable.
    (And there’s no way that Jim Henson and Frank Oz weren’t high on something when they made this, right? Jkjkjk.)

    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    ★★★

    A perfectly fine time at the movies, although I definitely would’ve cut at least a few minutes from the driving sequences and some of Rick Dalton’s day shooting that pilot. The entire Spahn Ranch sequence was incredible, though.

    For what it’s worth, I listened to You Must Remember This’ Manson series a few months before seeing this, which put all of that stuff in context. (A must-listen if you want to learn more about the Manson murders.) I don’t think it’s necessary to know it all to watch it, but I think I enjoyed the movie more because of it.

  • Midsommar

    Midsommar

    ★★★★½

    Midsommar was the kind of film that, when it ended, my friend and I both went “what the fuck did we just watch” to each other and immediately grabbed a beer to attempt dissecting it. And I love that it sparked that!

    It’s not quite as scary as Hereditary and a little more straightforward overall, but I think I preferred it.
