We went out to lunch and to a movie, Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” For those of you who’ve seen the trailer, the movie appears to be about an action star, Leonardo DiCaprio, and his stunt double, Brad Pitt. If you plan on going to see this movie, let me help you out and tell you, just don’t. It’s three hours, and those are three hours you’ll never get back. Most of the movie is about DiCaprio feeling like he’s not getting the roles he deserves, and how his career, and ultimately, Brad Pitt’s, is failing. But then Tarantino felt like he needed a twist of some kind, so inserted Sharon Tate…..and her pregnancy, and the Manson family, without Charlie…
For those of you who are too young to remember this, Sharon Tate, while pregnant, was murdered by the Manson family..
Luckily, in this revised version of history, the Manson family went to Sharon Tate’s next door neighbor’s house, DiCaprio’s, where the only ten minutes of the movie worth watching took place…when Brad Pitt and his pit bull eliminated all of them, with a little help from DiCaprio. You might be thinking this would be worth watching, and it is, but the rest of the movie is so bad, I’d try to find this clip on the internet and watch it and be done with it.
I wouldn’t even recommend you watching it on RedBox, if you have those where you are…as $1.99 is more than you’ll want to pay to watch this. I can normally handle a boring movie, but this went beyond boring….I fell asleep twice, and Rich leaned over to me fifteen minutes in, and said, if we were at home, I’d be changing the channel…I think that best sums up the experience.
