    Once Upon a Time...In Hollywood

    I'm a huge Tarantino fan, so I wasn't going to miss this one regardless. Loved it. Don't want to spoil the film, so I'll just say that if you're a fan, it's worth seeing. One thing that might enhance the experience is to think of the central character as Hollywood itself (a romanticized version of 1969 Hollywood), rather than any individual in the story. Acting is excellent, visuals are lush (many snippets of fake "old movies and TV shows" that look just like the real ones (also present)), sound design is fantastic (especially the little bits in the background on radio/TV). Will definitely go into the collection.:T

    once upon a time in hollywood

    i have found most folks are pretty much divided on Quinton Tarantino's films.
    i for one, happen to like them all, and consider some to be quite exceptional.

    so of course, my impressions of this one are in the same vein, albeit, this film does stray from his often overflowing amount of violence.
    in this instance, it is more hinted at, in the suspense style of the summer camp horror flicks of the 70's & 80's.

    but be not put off if you need your fix of Quinton blood-spattered scenes.
    also, for buffs of "Manson Family" history, this is a 'must see'.

    five out of five from me.

    :5:

    and on a the side:
    • Pitt's acting > Leo's
    • very long, but preferred to having too much necessary content end up on the cutting room floor.
    • laughed my ass off.
    • you gotta see what happens to bruce lee!!!!
    • cars and music period correct & well chosen

      From what I've read and heard, this could be a lot of fun for people of a certain age...

        Looking forward to revisiting this (just got the UHD disc set--though can only watch BD for the moment).
