    Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood

    ★★★★½

    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood: Quentin Tarantino’s love letter to Hollywood and Sharon Tate. 

    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is not like other Tarantino movies. It is funnier than his other movies. It’s almost comedy-driven instead of focusing on action. Oh and it’s not about revenge!

    This is probably my second favorite of his filmography because of how close it is to my favorite, Inglorious Basterds. 

    Tarantino takes his time showing and building the setting of 1969’s Hollywood…

    This movie made me think about what we could’ve probably had if this director Julius Onah had the same freedom he had in this movie while making The Cloverfield Paradox. Even if you’re not a fan of this type of movie, you could tell that he wanted to present this story in a very specific way with complete control over the tone. And while doing that he keeps the audience thinking and second guessing constantly.

    Every Lanthimos film is like looking through a small window, watching aliens interact in the form of humans.

    ★★★★

    Halfway through the movie I had a whole review prepared but then the last hour of the movie happened and now I can’t remember any of what I wanted to say. 

    Let me start by saying that I thought it was very good. There are definitely some moments that I wasn’t a big fan of, especially nearing the end. The last hour or thirty minutes weren’t bad and they weren’t necessarily good. I don’t know what they were. That part…
