    I hated the fight sequence (even more violent scenes in the previous films were done better) and pacing of the movie. It needed a tighter editing, if you cut endless shots of people just driving, you would get probably 10 minutes less. It’s less plot oriented than his previous efforts which was surprising.

    The ending was probably rewriting history in order to give characters a happy ending they didn’t get in real life. Now Tarantino is Briony Tallis apparently. All they really died and it was Rick Dalton going to Heaven? IDK.

    I’m confused about the screenplay – it was more a collection of short stories around 3 characters that were only coherent to a point. Late introduction of a narrator is a cheap move that should be beneath Tarantino’s standards. Cameos of Steve McQueen, Bruce Lee and Roman Polański didn’t amount to anything (after hoopla in Polish media about Polish actor playing Polański it was disappointing to see how little he got to do). McQueen being jealous of Polański and Sebring was terrible. It’s certainly a lesser Tarantino movie IMO, the one which was probably done to please Tarantino more than viewers.

    That being said, I liked the glimpses of show business backstories, Leo’s scenes with young actress (she would correct me ‘an actor’) were the standouts. Cliff at the ranch was the best, the most tense scene that ultimately didn’t amount to much. Dakota Fanning was really good there, 2 scenes more and she would be in conversation for Best Supporting Actress. DiCaprio and Pitt made a good job of creating a compelling and entertaining characters. Fine movie but already overrated.

    Our latest overrated film is born!
    The score on IMDB is ridiculous (though it’s declining). Yet it is quite predictable because there are Tarantino AND Dicaprio in it.

    Possible for noms:

    1.Production Design (Love it!)
    2.Supporting Actor
    3.Cinematography
    4.Costume/Makeup
    5.Editing (We’ll have “Irishman”&”1917” coming up)
    6.BP (No way winning)
    7.BD (No way winning)
    8.Screenplay(No way winning)
    9.Score(No way winning)

    I don’t think Score is a possibility, as the movie doesn’t really have an original score. Correct me if I’m wrong (I often am).

    I’m also curious to know why you think there’s no way for Tarantino to win Best Director – for me it’s obvious that he could finally be a serious threat in the category.

    Oh really? Thanks for correction

    I don’t think he will win because this is among his less good works. But yeah, considering the current situation of BD competition,maybe he can still be top 3. Martin and Sam Mendes look more optimistic,though.

    Ugh….getting above 8.2 on IMDB with more than 100,000 reviews is actually a difficult thing. Scores of “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood” on RT & MTC are more reasonable and convincible.

    And…come on! Every rating/top list means at least something. After all, not all the movie lovers ,award voters ,and critics are Goldderby members. We can’t live in our own bubble, just like we did last year.

    I respect your opinion of the movie but the fact is OYTIH is not generally considered one of its auteur’s lesser works; quite the contrary, it has been received with acclaim. If it has wings it can definitely be the film to earn Tarantino the Oscar widely considered to be overdue.

    Not that a movie even has to be generally considered good to win an Oscar – Oscars history is filled with directors, producers and thespians winning for work that’s not among their best – but that’s another story.

    As for QT’s competition, Scorsese already has an Oscar and doesn’t have the narrative Tarantino does. Mendes isn’t anywhere near QT’s status. Baumbach, Gerwig, Wang, Heller, Joon-ho, Mangold, Wilde, Almodovar and some others could certainly pick up steam, but at the moment Tarantino looks more likely to win than any of them.

    So I do insist it’s incorrect to say there’s no way for him to win. At this early stage (and yes, everything can change just like that) he has a clearer path than anyone else.

    I thought this movie was great. Some random thoughts:

    Leo was amazing and I he blew my mind on several scenes. Totally deserving of a Best Actor nom.

    Brad was also amazing and charming through the whole movie. I still was expecting a little more after the reviews. He will be a BIG category freud if he goes supporting. He is totally a co-lead to Leo.

    Margot was perfect as Sharon Tate. She is the heart of this movie. But yeah, zero chance for a suporting nom.

    Tarantino will be totally deserving of a director and screenplay. The themes of the film are totally Tarantino, but the end result might be his least “Tarantinesque” movie ever.

    The movie was like 30 minutes overlong. That is my main issue with it.

    I went with a group of friends who didn’t know every detail about Charles Manson, Sharon Tate, 60’s Movies Stars, Spaghetti Westerns, etc. So they didn’t get the movie (especially the ending) and most didn’t like it. It should thank it has bankable stars on it because if not I feel this would have been a flop with general public.

    And personally thought the ending was amazing. Don’t want to spoil it but it might be my favorite ending on a Tarantino movie.

    Darling, she’s getting in and maybe winning. Her cinema scene is Oscar-worthy.

    I thought the film was terrible, for me this shouldn’t win Picture, Director nor Screenplay. Pitt and Costumes probably. Prod Design is almost sure. I don’t see how can Robbie get in.

    Darling, thank you. The movie was disgusting. Pitt wasn’t expressive at all. Robbie should win. That’s it.

    Can this become Tarantino’s “Departed”?.Scorsese won Director in 2006 for not his best work,now not even his 21st Century best but a great movie though with a brilliant ensemble.Tarantino just like Scorsese have the narrative if not as big as Scorsese.OUTIH is now a critical and commercial hit and still running strong.This is his second last film.OUTIH is the first time QT’s direction overshadowed his writing.He is not only one of the best but biggest Hollywood director working now.Can this be really his moment?Can he win Best Director?

    I just watched it and holy shit. The ending was so fucking satisfying I still got chills.

    Let’s get real, Brad deserves that Oscar. I’ve never even liked him that much but I just fell in love with him. What a man. Leo also acted his ass off and should deservingly win the Globe.

    As for Margot… she was absolutely lovely but doesn’t do much aside from walking around looking angelic. Kerry Washington did way more on Django and still didn’t come close to a nom so I don’t think Margot will win anything. The movie somehow manages to revolve around her in the most beautiful way but in terms of acting, she barely does anything.

    What a movie. I’ll definitely see it again for the ending only.

    I’ll rank Tarantino’s movies like this

    1. Pulp Fiction

    2. Kill Bill Vol 1

    3. Django Unchained

    4. Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    5. Kill Bill Vol 2

    6. Jackie Brown

    7. Inglorious Basterds

    8. Hateful Eight

    9. Reservoir Dogs

    10. Death Proof

    The movie does feel very different from the usual Tarantino though, with way less wtf moments and definitely way less gratuituous violence. I wonder if the critics got to him in some way because the whole thing felt much more respectful than usual. Sharon is literally treated like an angel.

    My personal rank would be:

    1. Pulp Fiction
    2. Jackie Brown
    3. Inglorious Basterds
    4. Django Unchained
    5. Kill Bill Vol. 1
    6. The Hateful Eight
    7. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
    8. Reservoir Dogs
    9. Kill Bill Vol. 2
    10. Death Proof

    No I don’t think so. There’s a world where he misses the nomination too. QT is his own worst enemy and has a problem with keeping his mouth shut and playing the politics. It’s still too early to tell. If enough of the fall movies flop I say he’s good for the nomination, and I think OUATIH will deservingly get multiple nominations. I think it will struggle to win Oscars and wind up like an American Huslte or The Favourite (obvious technical accomplishments but conventionally unsatisfying and too strange to build a consensus).

    My personal Top 5 of 2019 so far:
    1) Parasite 2) The Farewell 3) Once Upon a Time in Hollywood 4) The Irishman 5) Knives Out

    August 25, 2019,Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has grossed $123.2 million in the United States and Canada, and $116.6 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $239.8 million.
    Brilliant run at box office continues,now well over it’s $100 million budget(Ad Cost added).I guess there’s a chance it’ll top Django worldwide if it manages a China release.

    Tarantino could win, but I only think it’ll happen if his direction is seen as the best of the nominees. He may have never won for direction, but he has two screenplay Oscars, so I don’t think he’s going to have an overdue narrative. And even if he gets an overdue narrative, it won’t be nearly as strong as Scorsese’s. Scorsese was much more beloved at the time of his win than Tarantino is now, and unlike Tarantino, he had never won before, even though most people agree he should’ve. And of course, his direction being met with acclaim certainly helped him. I personally think people should look out for Sam Mendes this year. The idea of 1917 being shot to look like it’s all one continuous take sounds like something that the voters are gonna eat up. Iñáritu won for Birdman doing the same thing, and Mendes’ direction has the potential to be even more technically impressive, given the fact that it’s for a war film.
