Once Upon a Time in Hollywood – A Review by Fast Film Reviews

I was going to write my own review for the meandering mess of a movie called Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, but after yesterday’s disaster of a review I just didn’t have the heart… or pain tolerance… to write another one so soon.

Read, heed, and enjoy…

        1. Tru that, rsrook. I used to go to the theater several times a month; but I’ve given up completely on anything marvel and there hardly is anything that compels me to go anymore, I was really looking forward to this one. Oh well…

    1. Nope. And he already did the alternative history movie thing, and did it much better, with Inglorious Basterds. Why do another? Anyway… who knows anything when it comes to ol’ QT except that there will always be a lot of cussing and a lot of gratuitous violence.
