    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    ★★★★

    Knowing that Tate’s family approving of the portrayal put me at ease prior to watching the film. I’ve never seen a Tarantino film prior to this one but it didn’t seem like it would be as grotesque and gory as I was aware his predecessors were (and uh, I was kinda right about that).

    Spider-Man: Far from Home

    ★★★½

    ★★★½

    Self aware and a cheeky way of playing into tropes seen in classic rom-coms. Entertaining and honestly? Not as predictable as I expected. I feel like the real cons of the film is not utilizing every character to the fullest but overall, I would love to see this become a new romcom classic because like Natalie, I believe most romcoms are awful but like her clucky assistant, they’re fun to watch and appreciate and I feel like this is gonna be a movie many of us will appreciate in the future and pop in when we’re feeling down.
