Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

I didn’t do a whole lot of research on this one before I went and saw it. I knew it took place in 1969 and was loosely based on the Mason murders, but that was about it. Anything Quentin Tarantino does is gold, he is a modern day Steven Spielberg. Plus Tarantino has said he’s only going to do ten movies and that’s it. So they have a limited edition feel to them, each one is more anticipated than the last. ‘Once Upon a time in Hollywood’ stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie. All of them are amazing in anything they do. Brad Pitt really sold me once he did ‘Burn After Reading’, and ‘Inglourious Basterds.’ So naturally he was great in this, and really brought the movie together even though he was second fiddle to Leonardo. The movie follows Rick Dalton (Leonardo), and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) in the dying days of the golden era of Hollywood. Dalton was once a huge star on his cowboy show, but is now only being type cast as a villain cameo in other westerns to help boost the new up and coming cowboy actors. Dalton is struggling to come to terms that his best days are behind him and Hollywood is changing and moving forward with out him. The entire time Booth is becoming more of Dalton’s personal assistant, and handyman rather than stunt double as he is no longer needed in Hollywood. Tarantino finishes up the movie with his unique spin on the Manson murders. All in all Tarantino has put out another great movie, and this is a must see.
