When the Manson girls were finished scrounging through dumpsters for food, a fourth generation Ford Econoline van can be seen driving through an intersection in the background. That particular generation of Ford Econoline wasn't made until 1992, and the movie takes place in 1969. See more »

Some people will hate it. But i LOVE IT!
16 August 2019 | by silasbe97See all my reviews

Once Upon a Time ... In Hollywood is a lot better then i expected. This film, like many people say, is a love letter for Hollywood. Especially the late 60s. The writing is exceptional as always, and Tarantino shows that you don't need a complicated story with a specific story structure. And he still somehow makes this script into an extremely fun engaging movie like he always does.

Some people don't want to watch long scenes with people just talking, but i, i think it's really fun and for some reason the scenes don't feel dragged out at all.

All the acting is phenomenal, the cinematography, direction, art-direction and obviously the writing is classic Tarantino... and by that i mean it's great.

The only bad thing i can think of is that in the scenes that are supposed to be the movies Rick Dalton are in, for some reason they didn't change the camera. It was still great quality so you couldn't really tell what was a movie and what wasn't. They could have used a real 16mm film camera or put on an effect in post but it was pretty confusing. Other then that, this movie is amazing.
