Quentin Tarantino has gone too far this time. Just play L.A. Noire and put on some 60's tunes during the driving sections and you'll have Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood. This is why auteurs have such a bad name these days!

Quentin Tarantino's interconnected "Hollywood" is (except for its ending) his least violent film, but it just so happens to also be his most nostalgic and at times sentimental. At least, as sentimental as a movie involving the Manson family cult can possibly be.

Tarantino could had told a better story.

It’s just okay.
The acting is very good. Brad Pitt is so cool in this movie. Leonardo DiCaprio is funny as an insecure tv actor. Margot Robbie is lovely as Sharon Tate. But despite being one of the more notable stars, she’s not that important to most of the story.
The costume design and the cinematography looks authentic. There’s just no real plot driving it until the last thirty minutes. It’s a buddy flick for much of its running time. The almost three hour length is absurdly bloated. It could easily been cut to two hours.
There is actually no violence or real suspense until the Manson family shows up. The resolution of their presence is an amusing alternative version of events. But it may upset some viewers as a whitewashing if very real horrific events.
In the end, …

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood - Review

“When you come to the end of the line, with a buddy who is more than a brother and a little less than a wife, getting blind drunk together is really the only way to say farewell.”

‘Once Upon a Time In Hollywood’ is a chilled blast from the past told like a fairy tale. It’s both aimless and yet meaningful with the commentary on the new era in Hollywood. The movie pays tribute to old Hollywood, film making, Sharon Tate, stunt work, and actors. This is perhaps Tarantino’s most personal and mature movie his made, until the last 10 minutes (which I love) goes complete ape sh*t.

I can’t think of any other director where the passion and love for movies is so transparent through Tarantino's craft. He’s such an old school film maker that he and Martin Scorsese are the last …

Tarantino's Gorgeous Golden Age Love Letter

Chris Kavan - wrote on 08/18/2019

Quentin Tarantino has said that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is his opus and I can see why he would say that. Both alike and unlike any of his previous films, Hollywood stands on its own. It still has that dialogue you expect, a killer soundtrack that fits the mood and memorable characters. It also has that stylized violence that is so Tarantino - though it only makes an appearance at the very end. Tarantino also knows how to make the most out of casting, as the leads and cameo appearance alike are excellent and makes a case that Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio should really work together more often.

While many people may argue that the "Golden Age" of Hollywood ended with Singin' In the Rain - Tarantino's Golden Age takes place at the tail-end of the 60s. DiCaprio plays a …
