Solid 7.7. Margot Robbie embodies Sharon Tate extremely well and Leo really shows what it’s like to become obsolete. Ending is very spooky when it shows what could have happened if the Mason family had picked a different house. Makes you wish Leo and Brad’s characters were real people.

My review will be biassed because I am a huge Tarantino fan. I thought it was a great homage to movies. You can tell the guy is in love with film and the movie process, which shows by the absolute phenomenal filmography he has under his belt. That being said this movie was very different from his other films. While it still focuses heavily on character development and storytelling, some fans may be disappointed by the lack of violence. Also, the plot is a lot more linear and with fewer twists and turn. All in all, I still thought it was a great film where Tarantino retells his version of history.

I cannot get my head around this film. Maybe it's down to my high expectations of Tarantino films but I just really struggled to get into this one.
Top marks for the recreation of Hollywood in all its 60s charm but I was a saddened that Margot Robbie didn't have more dialogue and was left wondering if they could have brought her into the story more?
Ultimately it was slow paced and lacking the sharpness fondly associated with Tarantino, and unfortunately there is no amount of excessive violence that can make up for the rest of the film 💔

Holds the best scene in cinematic history in my opinion. Cliff Booth high on an acid dropped cigarette then pouring dog food into a bowl and proceeding to say “woah”
Me and George reference this scene all the time and I love it😂
What an experience this movie is and so quotably hilarious at times!
“Yeah but those god damn hippies sure ain’t”😂😂
If you love Tarantino’s period pieces I would definitely recommend this one but anticipate a slow climb to an out of this world climax!

Sunday night's movie was Once Upon A Time.....In Hollywood starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie, and directed by Quentin Tarantino.
The film is basically the story of actor Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his steady stunt man, Cliff Booth (Pitt). Rick is an actor on his way down from the peak of stardom. Roles are drying up and he has begun to hit the bottle. His stunt man/driver/errand boy/jack of all trades sticks by him, none the less.
The action takes place in 1969. And the attention to detail is amazing. You feel as if you ARE in 1969 Hollywood.
I'll be honest.....this film was a lot different than I thought it was going to be. And I truly believe that you need to be of a certain age to enjoy it. There is SO much nostalgia going on throughout the film.....you have to listen constantly to hear things in the background. Names are dropped constantly that I think will mean nothing to people. Old tv shows are always on the tv.....the opening to Mannix, Robert Goulet singing MacArthur park, of all songs. I had to wonder if half the people in the theater even KNEW all those clips were real. I know for a fact that I was the only one in the theater who knew who Ron Ely was when his name was mentioned.
During a party at the Playboy Mansion, you'll be scanning the crowd to see what "celebrities" you can spot.
While wondering where his career is going, he realizes his new next door neighbors are a talented director and an up and coming actress......Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate.
Yes, Quentin Tarantino includes Sharon Tate in a movie....which takes place in 1969.
It's a long movie at two hours and 41 minutes....and it takes its time getting to the end....but it is such a wondrous ride to get there.
Recommended for lovers of film, Hollywood, and anyone old enough to get the gazillion and one Hollywood references along the way.

I will always love Tarantino and it is soo cool seeing him making something really different and it comes off as him reminiscing on how hollywood used to be. A beautiful film that is surprisingly funny.

8/ 10. A bit different to some of tarantinos other films and a great spin on history again
Rewatch: 10/10. On second viewing, this film is so much better! I would really advise to wathx this film twice to really delve deep into the style and atmosphere of the film and the time its set it, As well as the characters in the film

put off watching this for ages, as i didn’t hear the best things however i thoroughly enjoyed it and the end made the whole thing worth it
loved everyone’s performances and thought margot robbie was great
Exactly what you’d expect from a film like this directed by Tarantino. Brad Pitt is superb in this. So so long though.
Have to say I didn’t expect QT to do a film like this! I enjoyed it a lot, but plot wise it did feel slow. I love the twist he presented to the actual history, only if that’s what happened...
I did not like this. It was SO slow but I guess the last half hour made up for its lack of plot. I sat in the movie theater waiting for it to end. Might be better if you watch it on the TV since you're not confined.

Who doesn’t love a good Tarantino movie and with a cast like that! Fantastic movie! The fact that it doesn’t get a 10 is merely because I don’t have the urge to see at again and again.
I don't think I quite understand the movie so can't appreciate it to the best. Violent details are expected. Personally think Kill Bill is better, at least it leaves me with something.

A faded television actor and his stunt double strive to achieve fame and success in the final years of Hollywood's Golden Age in 1969 Los Angeles.
