Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood is, without question, the least enjoyable movie I’ve ever given an A+ to.
The writing and directing are some of Tarantino’s best. The acting was as good as you’ll see. Leonardo DiCaprio was at his best, which let’s face it: is the best ever. Brad Pitt was fantastic. My only mark against Pitt in this movie is that his character isn’t much of a stretch from many other roles he’s played.
To be fair, there were a few scenes, here and there, where I saw DiCaprio’s character from Wolf of Wall Street.
However, even though the movie gets high marks all around, I didn’t love it. I’m certainly impressed by the acting and craftsmanship on display. I just found the setting disinteresting. It’s the 70s, for crying out loud. They thought neon was amazing. If there’s a decade that needs to be flushed down a time toilet, it’s that one.
However, I can hardly knock a movie for that, now can I?
Spoilers to come if you want them:
About The Peetimes: There are 4 good Peetimes, nicely spaced out through the movie. Any one of the 3 will work for you, but I suggest the 2nd one, since it is the longest and has a very short synopsis.
There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
Rated (R) for language throughout, some strong graphic violence, drug use, and sexual references
Genres: Comedy, Drama
