Robby’s review published on Letterboxd:
Sorry not sorry but the Bruce Lee scene is absolutely hilarious and the audience both of the times I've went has clearly agreed.
Everyone that said this movie played better on a second viewing was completely right. The first time I saw Once Upon a Time ... In Hollywood I really liked it, but after a second viewing I've realized that I fucking love it. I was completely sucked into the world of this movie and I loved nearly every second of it. The way Tarantino completely transports us to 1969 is so damn cool. I've been watching a lot of interviews with him recently and he truly is one of the most passionate writers and directors working today. You can just feel it in this movie. This is one of the funniest and most entertaining movies of the year so far, and it's definitely up there as one of my favorite Tarantino's too (although I still need to watch Inglourious Basterds and Jackie Brown, which I plan on finally getting to this week, so calm down lol). I already can't wait to see this again.
Two side notes: 1) Pitt and DiCaprio are perfect in this. I can't decide which performance I like more, but I would love for both of them to get a lot of attention come awards season next year (as well as this movie in general). Margot Robbie was also the perfect choice to portray Sharon Tate. 2) Probably my second favorite climax/ending of the year, only behind Avengers: Endgame. Truly lived up to the hype
Edit: I CAN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT THIS MOVIE, I LOVE IT SO MUCH
