Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★½

In terms of graphic violence, this is probably the most PG13 Tarantino movie I have watched. He definitely toned down from the excessive grotesqueness from the Hateful Eight and Django Unchained, and I can say it’s different and it’s something I appreciate. 

The twist on the event that inspired the movie is refreshing although I personally have some uneasy feelings about it - that I wish what happened in the movie could actually happen in real life (Sharon Tate is Alive).

There were great moments in the film (Brad Pitt was much better than Leo DiCaprio IMO), and some of the twists are great (expectation subverted in a satisfactory manner) but overall I didn’t quite like the movie as much as I thought I would do.

PS: Seeing Bruce Lee getting his ass kicked by Brad Pitt in the movie set was hilariously satisfying.
