I went to see Tarantino’s new movie “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” today with my mother. We ended up walking out of it a bit more than halfway through and getting our money back. I’m not against Quentin Tarantino either. I mean,I loved me some “Jackie Brown”. But this was horrible! It was meandering as fuck, to the point that any momentum the story built was ruined by the next random scene, usually with Leonardo DiCaprio being a sad cowboy, of boredom, confusion, and trite or no dialogue. It was distasteful too. It did not pay the proper respect to the source material of Sharon Tate’s brutal murder by members of the Manson family. It made fun of Tate and Bruce Lee who both can’t exactly defend themselves now to say the least. It did not make good use of the cast. Al Pacino was in it for all of 2 minutes. Most of all it was so slow! I kept thinking it was going to pick up, but it never did. WTF?
The only good thing it had going for it was the ‘60s setting and the music. But that was just not enough. Why is this movie getting good reviews? It was almost as bad as Midsommar! Does anyone else feel this way about it? Did you like it? Or did you feel duped like I did?
