  • Brilliant point by Tarantino, will indy movies matter in fifteen years. The generation below mine were spoiled by video games, and then you tubes. They know nothing of movies or care to. A whole generation of morons that don't know of books or movies. How does one know of the world and themselves by only video games? It's sad.

  • Someone asked Clint Eastwood, “ When are you going to retire”. His response was, “ When people stop watching my movies”....I’m pretty sure Quentin Tarantino feels the same way.

  • Once upon a time was my first Tarantino movie, after watching that I was HOOKED! Since I’ve been moving into other auter directors and picking up trademark styles. It was also at the start of the lockdown in the UK I began on that journey and it helped me decide that a career in writing and directing for film is exactly my dream job but watching this struck me with some fear with how Hollywood is changing but at the same time it’s also making me excited to actually give it a shot, wish me luck I guess

  • You know, I didn't like this film. I went into not knowing the Manson Family would be in it, and didn't understand why it had basically no plot compared to movies nowadays. But once you broke it down for me, on what Tarantino was referencing to, I actually can say that if this was his ultimate message, it was very well done and makes me appreciate the movie more now!

  • You might be reading too much into it ("Tarantino torches his critics" like Dalton uses a flame thrower on the Manson Family - come on!), but your analysis is fun to listen to nonetheless. But I would like to throw one of my own "meta" observations...the music used when the gates open to the Polanski home at the end (inviting Rick Dalton to "join" the new wave of Hollywood presumably) is the same music used in the Paul Newman vehicle THE LIFE AND TIMES OF JUDGE ROY BEAN at it's beginning. Over the cinemaphotography of the Texas wilderness, a "quote" appears at the beginning of that film: THIS IS NOT THE WAY IT HAPPENED, BUT IT SHOULD BE. I think Tarantino's intentional use of that music says a lot about his own philosophy towards film-making, and especially towards this film.

  • I don't understand people who say that not much happens in this film. I found it very entartaining, it didn't bore me one bit. Building the characters shouldn't be overlooked. And then everybody's singing the praises of the Irishman. That, I found quite a pointless film. Looked unedited to me, with that distracting CGI for de-aging. Even those old glories looked bored and telegraphed their lines.

  • The poor Tarantino is not die middle of the cinematic world any more. I hope he can live with that. Guys, this selfloating is dumb and I think Tarantino knows that. Ricks unsecurity and sadness is constantly contrasted to Cliffs poverty. While Rick is crying in his big pool, Cliff has to fix all his problems and lives in an ugly trailer. I am not sure what Tarantino want to present here, but I am pretty sure he is fine.

  • Quentin always has many layers to everything, yes all these things are very visible, but there's much much more. He's also finally laughing in the face of the people behind the Hollywood's curtains, the final act of the movie is his mockery of the Hollywood's devotion to the Gnosticism which is present in almost every major production, every single frame and words are making fun of their beliefs. It's very deep into the subtext but if you know the principles, you will see it pretty clear. Quentin has always been the freest and uncorrupted thinker and writer in that place. This is a true goodbye to this industry. I cannot wait to see his last film, it's gonna be something really genius.

  • First time I'm hearing anything about the mansion family being in the film. He failed to set that scene and just came off looking like a right wing monster trying to demonise the left during the time of Reagan. It's funny how horrific the violence is once you identify with the other and not the assholes dealing it out. It's methed up that anyone on the left would ever try to stage a home invasion, and it just spirals down from there. My takeaway from the movie was a treatise on how far we have come from a primitive time. How most of the bs isn't tolerated anymore. The judgement of the people at the ranch, the hot take of a stunt man beating up Bruce Lee, finishing with that it's ok to kill people who are no longer a threat just cause they entered your home.

  • So far, I have no interest in seeing Once Upon A Time. DeCaprio’s weak chin makes him not look the part. The summary characterization of hippies as dystopian killers is not an interesting twist. And Sharon Tate as the personification of innocence and Hope sounds like a boring adolescent’s fantasy about the Marsha-Brady-like girl-next-door. I know you’re not supposed to read a book by its cover, but it’s the filmmaker’s job to get me into the theater. I don’t see myself rushing to stand in line (even imaginatively, given that we’re quarantined). I’d rather take my chances showing up at the New Beverly Cinema and taking my chances that whatever is being shown will have an impression on me-like when I saw Reservoir Dogs there and sat for ten minutes with my mouth open after it ended.

  • This video is horse shit. Quinton Tarantino has gone on the record saying the "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood" is his last movie and that he is retiring. He said that he is going to retire after he made ten films and "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood" was his tenth film. It took over thirty years to make ten films. He model his film career after Stanley Kubrick. Mr. Tarantino also said that he refuses to shoot in digital format. He would rather shoot in 35mm film. Film by itself is dying breed. Mr. Tarantino will not change with the times and for that he is a dying breed. He has seen the writing on the wall. There is no hidden message in "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood". In a nutshell I just saved you thirteen minutes.

  • Tarantino style seems to be more for shock value and what he would have to do nowadays to shock someone would be to portray himself as appropriate. He would have to change. His style doesn’t translate to the changed world. This last movie he did was awful. It’s like he broke his own rule. He didn’t steal and he paid homage. The only thing I got from the film was the performance of Dakota Fanning. That grit she brought was missing everywhere. But the movie is titled as a fairy tale. And it did have the “happy ending” . Overall, So boring I was reading up on the Mansons, and the ranch, and Tate. I just felt sick when it was over.

  • The people saying "you're reading too much into it" have obviously never read a single piece of trivia about Tarantino. The amount of detail he puts into every movie is insane. Even the name of this movie is self-referential: "Once upon a time... in Nazi-occupied France" was going to be the title of Inglourious Basterds (which was then used as the name of its first chapter).
