    Rebecca

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Q: Who is your favorite cinematic ghost?
    A: Mrs. Danvers from Rebecca.

    Q: Not Patrick Swayze, or Beetlejuice, or someone from The Others or The Sixth Sense? Casper, maybe? 
    A: No, no. It's Mrs. Danvers.

    Q: She's not a real ghost, though. 
    A: Well, she arrives and leaves very suddenly, as if from nowhere, and she always glides. Oh! And she never blinks!

    Q: Ghosts don't blink?
    A: Some do. Not Mrs. Danvers.

    Q: If Mrs. Danvers is a ghost,…

    Time, like most things, isn't linear. It absolves things and people of beginnings and ends, allows them to take different forms and continue existing.

    I went to buy Pokemon Scarlet and impulse bought this as well because it was $8 and I needed the escapism. A genuine fun time. Love Sandra, love Channing, love Dan Rad!

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★½

    I’ve been wondering how to phrase this review, how to organize my thoughts and feelings, trying to determine whether or not sharing them is worth it for my own well-being. Writing all this down has definitely helped me release at least some of the tension, heartbreak, and anger I’ve been harboring. There will be spoilers, which I don’t care to flag because I wish I had been warned, explicitly, of the gory details. So tread lightly, or not at all.…

    I bet the airline only gave her a $100 voucher off her next flight as compensation for the "inconvenience" they caused.
