Once Upon a Time In Hollywood: My review
Don't cry in front of the mexicans.
Okay, sorry for the brief hiatus that I took. I completely ran out of post ideas. I will try to be more active from now on.

When it was Sunday I watched Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. I am quite a big fan of Tarantino movies, so I obviously wanted to check OUATIH out. Apparently, some people didn't like it, but that still didn't stop me from watching it. After all, there are a lot of people who do not like Tarantino's work for various reasons.

The theater which I went to wasn't chaotic or anything. There were no screaming children or talking people that could interrupt the movie experience, so I could enjoy the movie in its full potential. One thing that slightly worried me is that there were a few kids in the theater. And as you may know, bringing children to watch a Tarantino movie isn't really a brilliant idea.

So one of the main reasons why people don't like OUATIH is due to how lengthy and slow it is. People compare it to when you are listening to a story and the speaker includes every single detail, which turns it into a very slow and boring experience. I personally did not face that issue. As long as it might have been I did not find myself falling asleep or being very bored. I was entertained enough to continue watching the movie, up until the end. After all, I feel like all of these scenes are important. Why? Well… if I say why I may or may not spoil the movie.

About the violence: if you go to a Tarantino movie you should expect it to be pretty violent. And about the foot thing, you should also expect that. Those two things are in practically every Tarantino movie and you should prepare for them before watching one. Personally, I did not find it disgusting, but I am better at handling violent stuff than most people that I met so I don't know about that one.

Oh, and the most important things: DO NOT look up anything about OUATIH that may contain spoilers, and learn more about the Sharon Tate murders. The latter will be very important and the story may seem confusing if you do not learn about it.

Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
SPOILERS
I don't know why people were so mad at Tarantino for his portrayal of Bruce Lee. First, it was Cliff's memory, so it was probably biased towards him. Secondly: as evident by the ending, the movie takes place in an alternate universe. It is entirely possible that in this universe Bruce Lee was a completely different person.

And about the ending: many people find it to be too violent, but I think there is an explanation for it. First off, it is a Quentin Tarantino movie. What else do you expect?

Secondly, I'm pretty sure it's supposed to reflect the brutality of the Tate murders. Tarantino humiliated the murderers in a funny and brutal way, all to make the scene even more satisfying to watch.
Made on
