Episode #126: Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood

August 1, 2019

Well we did it, two pods in one week!  Fair warning up front it’s a long one but a good one. Today Mike Talent and Matt discuss Quentin Tarantino’s 9th film according to him, Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood.  Extra topics include what is feature length, QT’s top 3 films, LaLa and Heather walk out, and sneaking booze into a movie theater.  

The hosts are really divided on this film.  They both are massive QT fans. He is an incredible story teller not only in his writing but also his shooting of a film.  Mike really loved Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood from start to finish.  He particularly enjoyed the amazing sets and driving scenes with all the nostalgic incredible automobiles.  Matt on the other hand thought it dragged at the beginning and an hour could easily be cut from this film. They both wanted more of certain scenes and story lines and less of others.  Matt also thinks Margo Robbie got robbed.  She did an incredible job as Sharon Tate but the character was not in the film enough.  Mike gives an above average rating of 4 out of 5 Reels.  Matt gracious gives QT’s 9th film 3 out of 5 Reels.        

Next week the guys talk about the over the topic action film Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.  Matt has not seen any of the Fast & Furious franchise films since Tokyo Drift so this might be an interesting review.  If the hosts have the time they will also get around to doing a Tributary review of the Netflix Original Revenger.  Thanks for tuning in and supporting the show.
