My opinion : I know I haven’t posted in a while, I know i’m making false promises but it’s just hard to continue on. But now I feel my inspirations come back to me finally, so here we go; Quentin Tarantino’s new film is a deep and personal film to him that was quite possibly made just for him which explains the confusing flaws of the film. For one Brad Pitt and Leonardo Dicaprio make for just as good a partner as Samuel L Jackson and Travolta and their performances are phenomenal for their characters and their distinct personalities. The 60s look is, quite frankly the most well realized and realistic look of that specific time frame. The aesthetics are exceptional it’s almost mind blowing. The story follows these two heroes along with real life ex-actress Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) in the background with Roman Polanski as they try to score it good with Rick Dalton (Leo) starting to become a fading artist in those times and must find any means necessary to gain back that prestige and popularity whilst Cliff Booth (Brad), a war hero now turned stuntman and partner struggles to cope with the idea that their strong and fruitful friendship comes to an end. We follow their story and through the way everything is filmed it is clear the film will be more appreciated given some time like fine wine because well, theres no tension in the movie except for a couple exceptionally well done scenes. Maybe its how Tarantino films his movies or maybe its just me, but it does pose a problem sometimes. Also except for the mere idea of reviving the 60s new 70s era, Sharon Tate has almost no use in the film which is a big problem because of how iconic she is. The film has its moments of comedy such the famous Bruce Lee / Cliff Booth fight halfway in the movie thats really hilarious. The third act of the film is way above the other two with one of Tarantino’s greatest finales ever filmed since Reservoir Dogs. All in all the film is not the directors best, as its more of a mesmerizing tribute to the golden age of cinema as well as Hollywood at its prime. But it retains some fine performances, great scenes only QT could’ve pulled off and a kickass finale (8.5/10)
