The concession stand at a movie theater in the suburbs of Cincinnati, Ohio

This latest (and perhaps second to the last?!) Quentin Tarantino movie left me flummoxed. It felt slow. The dialog wasn’t as sharp. There was a lot of build-up and then the rug was pulled out.

It ultimately found the violence he reveres, but it had the creepy factor too.

I’m trying not to spoil anything, and though I walked away scratching my head, I think it’ll hold up as good as a Rockford Files episode. Which is saying a lot.

In brief: I think it’ll hold up well, but it was slow getting there. But who am I kidding? Slow getting there is awesome.

Also? Neon.
