Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

  • I... didn't like the Hateful 8. I saw it immediately following The Revenant, and honestly - I think that may have had something to do with it. The Revenant just ate QT's lunch in so many ways.

  • Here's what makes me anxious: Tarantino is extremely good at directing suspense when he feels like trying. This is a movie that will likely contain some sort of depiction of

    Sharon Tate's murder.

    I don't know if I'm physically able to watch a depiction of a real life tragedy like that in the manner that I think Tarantino can/will show it. Definitely a personal thing, but the last year or two I've developed really weak skin when it comes to that sort of stuff. Not sure what triggered it.

  • @naltmank Tarantino is probably not going to do it like that. I think he mentioned that it's going to be not historically accurate... so like the end of Inglorious Basterds

    I think there's a pretty good chance that Sharon Tate Home-Alone's the Manson Family

  • @tokyoslim haha that'd be wild. Hope you're right. I'm seeing it regardless but am bracing for the worst.

  • @naltmank I get what you're saying. I'm pretty much on the same boat. I really enjoy Tarantino's films, but there are usually a scene or two in pretty much all of them that really freaks me out (at least the first time). That has basically caused me to skip his theatre runs and wait til I can watch the movie privately home and on my own rules.

    And yes, there's good potential for some really twisted depiction of real-life killings with this one which already gives me this bad feeling in my stomach when I think about it.

  • *Then there’s the question of how Tate’s surviving loved ones might react to all of this. When Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was first announced, Debra Tate, Sharon Tate’s sister, expressed outrage. She was particularly disgusted that Sony originally planned to release the movie on August 9, which would coincide with the 50th anniversary of Sharon Tate’s murder. The release date was later changed July 26, 2019, and Debra Tate agreed to sit down with Tarantino and read the script.

    After this meeting, Tate changed her opinion of the film. The news of the Tate/Tarantino meeting came via TMZ, with their article stating:

    Debra says she voiced her concerns and he heard her out, then explained the movie’s plot … which made her feel much better. She says she now believes Tarantino has honorable intentions … “This movie is not what people would expect it to be when you combine the Tarantino and Manson names.”*

  • Tarantino had given a talk about his research about cinema in the 70's, and I believe some of the points he made are probably the driving elements behind "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood". I think a central theme of the film will be the fall of "Old Hollywood" and the emergence of "New Hollywood".

  • I’ve been going to see his movies Day one in theatres since I was old enough to starting at Inglorious Basterds. I loved Hateful Eight but I’ve only watched it once which is low for me and a Tarantino movie. No real reason, life just changed and I can’t watch a movie 50 times anymore.

    I never get excited for movies anymore but I can’t wait for this. Reviews from Cannes are out now on Metacritic and it’s looking good too!

  • I only watched the teaser trailer and I'm already in, so it's media blackout time. I love Tarantino's style, even though I only fully watched Inglorious Bastards and Reservoir Dogs (which is one of my favorite films ever). Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight's on my to-watch list.
