Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood (2019) Movie Review

Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood (2019) - Movie Review - Quick Movie Reviews by Haris

Actor Rick Dalton gained fame and fortune by starring in a 1950s television Western, but is now struggling to find meaningful work in a Hollywood that he doesn’t recognise anymore. He spends most of his time drinking and palling around with Cliff Booth, his easygoing best friend and longtime stunt double. Rick also happens to live next door to Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate — the filmmaker and budding actress whose futures will forever be altered by members of the Manson Family.

Tarantino captures the feel of 1950’s-1960’s Hollywood perfectly in this movie! The music, the commercials, the cars driving down the road, it’s all really nice to see! Also, Leonardo Di Caprio & Brad Pitt’s amazing chemistry is what makes this movie so watchable, among many other things. Out of Quentin Tarantino’s filmography, this is the one that relies on comedy the most. This is a laid back chill movie, and of course you get the over-the-top entertaining Tarantino epic explosions of violence in the last 20 minutes of this movie. So much fun!

This is the least violent Quentin Tarantino movie since Kill Bill 2, so if you don’t like excessive violence and you wanna watch a drama/comedy with very likeable characters and performances, you’re going to have fun with this movie just as much as I did. I don’t have any flaws with this movie and I’m going to give it 10/10*!
