Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood


This was the first Quentin Tarantino film that I have seen in theaters. It’s not that I don’t like his movies, I do, but I just would never get around to seeing them. With that being said, this was definitely one to see in theaters.


First thing I wanted to talk about with this movie is the cast. The cast is absolutely remarkable, leading with Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, and Brad Pitt. They were wonderful! I enjoyed Leo’s overdramatic nature of his character. All of them embodied their characters and made them feel like real people.


Another thing that I really liked was the story and how it was told. It was very interesting. It was told with a few points of view with multiple people and small yet important storylines winding their way through each other. You were introduced to a lot of different characters who you never saw again, some had importance and some did not. The story was also interesting because part of it is based on real-life, but what happens in the film is not what actually happened. Does that make sense? He used the true story as a jumping-off point and took it in a completely new direction. I was completely fascinated by the end.


One of the things that I was not prepared for was the lack of violence until the very end of the film. There was practically nothing until the last 20 minutes of the movie. Part of me was expecting there to be more blood, fighting, and death throughout the movie. It was a pleasant surprise. I appreciated that it was saved for the end and was a pretty epic climax.


Overall I did really enjoyed this film. It didn’t feel like the 2 and a half hours that is was. I hope to see what other movies Quentin will do in the future.

What did you think of the movie? Anything you want me to review? Comment Below!
