Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood ★★★

This one sadly disappointed.
Several unneccessary plot points led into nothing and had no pay off. The story is incredibly unfocused & too eventless. It's a suprisingly forgettable movie. The set up of some scenes is pretty weird. Some parts really felt out of place. This movie should've been cut down to 2 hours because of its many lenghts. The highly praised last 15 minutes weren't even that good in my opinion. The violence in this movie was pretty much on a PG-13 level compared to other Tarantino films and was also disappointing. It was never as thrilling or interesting as it could have been.

But still, I have to admit that this is pretty good. The acting is superb, the settings are awesome, the soundtrack is fantastic, the cinematography is fucking great. There are many good and some funny moments. I was bored in some parts, but never very bored. It actually started very entertaining, I really liked the first quarter.

So... overall I still liked it, even if by far not as much as I hoped.
