    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    ★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Seated next to me in the cinema was a true Tarantino fan. He was about twenty years old, nerdy, visiting the theatre with his friends. He was SO into this movie, it really annoyed me. I don't think, I would have found the humor quite so stupid, hadn't he sat next to me, laughing so hard at every little thing.

    As a kid, I had a very old picture book that was released accompanying this movie. It was my Mom's and I loved it. I hadn't ever seen the movie itself, until tonight, when I watched it with my Mom and my son, the first time she came to visit me after surviving cancer. This movie will forever be special to me no matter what.
    Still, the book I remember (not the T. H. White ones, that were loosely adapted…
