Quentin Tarantino is Shaq....in 2011

I just finished watching Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood.


Terrible.

Horrible.

Abysmal...


Wait, let's start again.

Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood

Story: F

Pace: F

Dialogue: D-

Quentin Tarantino: F



Other than the 5 minutes after Brad Pitt's character smoked the Acid Cigarette, the rest of the movie was absolutely atrocious.


You know why Tarantino doesn't want to make movies anymore? Because he's Shaquille O'Neal with the Celtics in 2011, overweight and bloated, struggling to breath as he lumbers down the court.


A sad commentary on a once great director, I could ramble on, but Tarantino already wasted 4 hours of my life tonight. 2 3/4 hours on the movie, an hour stewing about how bad the movie was, and 15 minutes to write this hackish, and hurried, review.


Rotten Tomatoes: Audience Score 70%

If I didn't pay for it on Pay-per-view ($2.99), I would have turned it off after the first hour.


"At the very worst, the final years of Shaq's career make him look like a veteran who over-stayed his welcome. Sure, he was popular with fans, and his off-the-court antics proved entertaining (at least to a point). However, his style in those years certainly surpassed his substance, as his game had to declined to the point that he was beginning to become a liability, especially with mounting injuries and decreased production." - Bleacher Report
