“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is Tarantino’s latest film, and James’ most anticipated of the year. But is it one of QT’s best?

Directed by: Quentin Tarantino

  1. i haven't been much impressed with any of his movies since inglorious basterds, which was fantastic. i remember when kill bill came out how grippingly entertaining and impressive it was start to finish. watching once upon time in hollywood made me really sad, even though i really enjoyed a handful of moments in the movie, it was so underwhelming, actually really puzzling how it could be so much less than the sum of it's parts….

  2. @Reel James, I am in love with this movie and find your review much more honest.

  3. I agree in everything you said, I might have enjoyed slightly less than you did for the same Tarantino love we share. Only thing I m not sure, it's the Bruce Lee guy did such a sterling job. When he was doin the impression with the sunglasses on at first yeah. Then he way he fought and the attitude went totally rubbish. I don't blame much the actor but the director to run it that way.

    Bruce Lee depiction was like a piece of guano dropping on top of an already far from perfect cake. I hated it and I completely agree with Bruce Lee relatives bad reaction to it.

  4. The Movie didn‘t feel like a tarantino, because of the violence. Seriously where was the violence we know from his Films. Just putting it all into the end felt like Oh we‘re running out of time, we have to come to the climax now! Don‘t missunderstand me, violence is not the key factor of a good Film and the film is good, but it wasn‘t a Tarantino

  5. I got to agree so dissapointing. Why is it 2hr 41min??? There is literally 1hr they could have cut. Where is Charles Manson and build to act 3? Man I wanted to love the film, but so much to cut. Thanks for sharing. Check my review as well.

  6. Quentin said , this movie style is the closest to Pulp Fiction , would you agree?

  7. 1-2. Pulp Fiction/ Inglorious Bastards (I really can’t figure out which one I love more) (10/10)
    3. Django Unchained (9.5/10)
    4. Reservoir Dogs (9.5/10)
    5. Kill Bill Vol. 1 (9.0)
    6. Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood. (8.5/10)
    7. Kill Bill Vol. 2 (8/10)
    8. The Hateful Eight (7.5)
    9. Jackie Brown** (7/10)
    10. Death Proof (6.5/10)

    ** I haven’t seen Jackie Brown since I was 12 or 13… I’m 33 now so it’s not a fair score. I’ll give it a rewatch soon.

  8. A Tier: Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Bastards
    B Tier: Django Unchained, Hateful Eight, Reservoir Dogs, (I imagine this one will fall somewhere in here too).
    C Tier: Kill Bill, Jackie Brown
    D Tier: Death Proof (honestly haven't even seen it)
