The only reasons to see Tarantino’s latest movie are the really alive performance by Brad Pitt, the red Rottweiler Brandy and a scene where Margot Robbie, playing Sharon Tate, watches herself on the screen in a theatre and enjoying the audience’s reaction plus it is always good seeing Al Pacino, even in a wasted role.As to be expected in a Tarantino’s film there is a lot of very vivid violence, much distortion of history and facts and a lot of extraneous scenes that bring nothing to the film.I have always been a fan of Leonardo DiCaprio since “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” even in his lesser pictures but in this movie he is just bad and I put the blame on Tarantino’s shoulders as director and screenplay writer. There are many cameos but none memorable or even remembered 5 minutes after you see them.The only reasons to see “Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood” are if you have 2 hours and 41 minutes of your life to waste and/or your electricity has gone out and this is the only theatre that has air conditioning! synopsis Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth film from the writer/director features a large ensemble cast and multiple story lines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age. Comedy, Drama   2 hr. 41 min.
