Quentin Tarantino is back with Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. It's got Brad Pitt, Leonardo, Margo Robbie, and Bruce Lee & Charles Manson (no, really). Most everyone liked it and it was up for Best Picture, but it still has sins. So we counted them.
Next week: Recent-past horror & recent narration.
Remember, no movie is without sin! Which movie's sins should we expose next?!

  • Cliff approaching the Manson camp was supposed to be a modern parallel to a spaghetti western when an anti hero approaches a saloon. He took forever looking around the same way the the other guy in the red jacket.

  • 1: It is owned by Sony when this film was made so... licensing 2: Yes 3: He’s an auteur 4: If it’s on purpose it’s clever don’t you reckon seeing as Cliff is Rick’s stunt DOUBLE 5: All people eat and drink shit, you made it a cliche 6: You’re easily jarred aren’t you? 7: He’s Pacino 8: Show as well as tell 9: 1 minute out of 162 and it’s not THAT funny 10: It’s a Tarantino movie 11: Would you rather a skeleton for a story? 12: It’s a Tarantino Movie 13: It’s a Tarantino Movie 14: What? And also, what? I know only children watch your videos now but why bleep Rick saying “fuck” 15: It’s a Tarantino Movie 16: It’s a Tarantino Movie about old Hollywood, what on earth do you expect? 17: Finally, the first technical flaw pointed out here, good one, some actual insight used. 18: ??? 19: It is cinematically appealing 20: It’s 1969 I gave up here. Your videos were funny 8 years ago when they were only 5 minutes long and pointing out actual flaws, no wonder your view count continues to drop, your videos have been trash for years, either stop churning out 20-minute-long unfunny, non-insightful videos or attempt to assess actual flaws with a film instead. “Liam neeson is Liam neeson in this scene” it’s not funny, entertaining or clever, it’s lazy. You are lazy.

  • I could be wrong about this, but the scene near the end where Leo is on the pool lounger with the headphones on could be a throw back to the actual murders - there was a guy in the guest house that night, William Garretson, and he later told the police he didn't hear anything cos he had headphones on listening to music

  • You don’t understand buddy. Driving is everything in LA. Cliche to say but no one walks in la. We take a lot of pride in driving and seeing all the lights and countless landmarks. We literally make an event out of driving along the coast enjoying the perfect weather and sunset. It’s a shame you don’t understand.

  • This movie wss great and I award it zero sins. You seem to be offended by the Bruce lee scene lol. Realize its once upon a time, a fairy tale, the scene was implemented to show the viewer that pitts character was extremely good at fighting being as he beat Bruce lee. Don't know any people got offended by it, including his daughter, if anything Tarantino provided free marketing to Bruce lee inc which resulted in his movie sales going through the roof along with Bruce lee merchandise. Too many people are way too sensitive today. Kind of feel like you were looking real hard for things to talk about. Tarantino purposefully puts hidden eggs in spots in the movie such as the tora tora Tora sign. He wants you the viewer to pay attention to whay your seeing. It was paying homage to old-school Hollywood as well as the people who passed away including Bruce lee who died too young and was supposed to be there that night. There were actually rumors going around that Bruce lee may have done it and Jim Morrison lmao. Wacky stuff. Anyway lee is A legend and I'm.sure if he were still alive today he.would of laughed his azz off at his scene. All the time.and effort the actor put into becoming lee shows you how much he loves Bruce lee as well. Everyone needs to stop being so sensitive.

  • At 6:54 during the fight scene between Cliff and the insulted legend Bruce, you can notice that the crowd that was around them just a second before, magically disappear! I think was the easiest mistake to spot;) P.s. btw the last ten minutes of this movie are just legendary 🐛

  • For me, it was definitely his worst movie. (And that doesn't count Death Proof, the original cut of which was part of Grindhouse, an intentionally "B-movie." Releasing the extended version as its own film felt like more a marketing ploy than a proper artistic decision. But, yeah, that would definitely be his worst if I was considering it.) I am a huge Tarantino fan. But OUATIH, I don't know, it was just soooo self-indulgent. I really wanted to like it more than I did. In fact, I did a review of it where I fall all over myself to not admit it's not that great. I mention how Hateful Eight wasn't one of my favorites on first viewing, but I came to consider it one of his best. I was really hoping the same would happen with OUATIH. But we watched it again at home, maybe six months after seeing it in the theater. And I had to finally admit it to myself. (My girlfriend is also a huge QT fan, but she said from the night we saw it in the theater that it was too long and boring; I kept defending it.) It SCREAMS for an editor willing to stand up to him. I think he's really become a victim of his success; nobody wants to second-guess the genius. But, my GOD, some parts just go on and on and on. All the stuff with Rick shooting the TV show. What the FUCK WAS THAT? It was interminable. And all the corny cameos and cuts to old movies Rick made. The footage of him doing The Great Escape, I don't know if that was supposed to be fantasy or what, but it was so silly and pointless. A movie can be very, very long...if it's all interesting. Tarantino has himself proven this many times over. But, for my money, he should've cut at least forty minutes out of this one. And the entire Bruce Lee segment was just a total batshit insult to an icon. So, QT is only supposed to have one more before retirement, right? Here's hoping the next one is a return to form. My advice would be, maybe listen to your editor.

    Walter The TerribleWalter The Terrible24 days ago
    • Yeah, that part was a total insult to Lee. I'm a huge Tarantino fan, but that seemed like an intentional diss. Thankfully, most people I've heard talk about that scene say it's ridiculous. Joe Rogan has a rant about it with thousands of likes. It's not that he had Cliff be able to beat Bruce in a fight, which is ridiculous enough, but that he went out of his way to make Bruce look like an asshole. Bruce Lee had tremendous respect for Muhammad Ali. He was also known for being protective of and respectful towards his stunt people. I don't know who that guy was based on, but it wasn't Bruce Lee.

  • How about at 10:35 when Squeaky says "that's a car. That's a strange car"? Throughout the movie it's implied that most of the girls from Spahn Ranch are Hitchhikers? If you hitchhike you're depending on stranger's to take you where you need to go and a stranger's car is definitely not going to sound familiar so why is squeaky surprised at the sound of a "strange car"?

  • I think the reason we see Brad Pitt insult and stand toe to toe with Bruce Lee it's because it's not a flashback, that's the thing Rick is working on right then.. He told brad pitt that kurt Russel runs the stunt team so he's imagining what would happen if Rick got Russel to hire him.. They establish all the bad blood between them has already happend so he's just guessing how it would go.. And then of course if he got the chance he imagines he'd be able to beat Bruce Lee.. That's why he chuckles when it cuts back to gin on the roof, he's like " yeah that wouldn't work out"

  • One thing I'm confused about is that he describes the Bruce Lee fight as a 'flashback.' I must be confused as I thought he got that job through Rick when Rick was filming the cowboy movie. Rick speaks to Kurt Russell about getting him a job. The flashback was 'killing his wife,' which isn't actually resolved either way. I'm sure this guy is correct as he went to a lot of effort and I saw the movie once at the cinema. I just obviously somehow misunderstood something, but if it is a flashback then Rick's movie must be a flashback as he is filming that when... oh never mind.

    Dan BishopDan BishopMonth ago
  • While some of the sins are reasonable, I have to point out that all of Quentin Tarantino take place in a parallel universe that he made up. Thus, some of the details of his world may not like up with the details of our world. This movie literally ALTERS history so it makes sense that certain details (like when certain movies came out) will come out wrong. Heck, according to the Tarantino Universe Hitler died from gunshots inside a burning movie theater, and your questioning what year Tora Tora came out? As for questioning why we need to see Cliff's entire car ride, that is part of Tarantino's style of filmmaking. Seriously, name one of his movies where a scene isn't dragged out for a long time. I never complain, because almost all of those scenes end with something awesome. CinemaSins, I'm a big movie nerd just like you so I appreciate you pointing out some of the mistakes (like disappearing cars and clocks that tell the wrong time) but sometimes you leave out important details that would cancel out your sins.

    Cpt BunbunsCpt BunbunsMonth ago
    • I wouldn't say it's a "bad" movie, it just has an incredibly niche audience. If you didn't grow up in this era, and don't have a decent knowledge about the film industry of the time, Tarantino's directing style, and the Manson murders, then this film can come off as incredibly nonsensical. Most other Tarantino movies are awesome because you don't need this background knowledge to watch it. You can just turn on Kill Bill and it's great, even if there's stuff you miss. This movie requires a very specific subset of knowledge and interests to enjoy.

      Barley Blue-MoonBarley Blue-MoonMonth ago
  • Jeremy sins the killers for deciding to go through with the murders even though Linda kasabian just dipped with the getaway car, saying that it wouldn't work out for them if they committed some murders and tried to hitchhike back to Spahn afterward, but that's exactly what they did in real life after their LaBianca murders, they were driven to the LaBianca residence and they were left to commit the murders with no car to leave with, they hitched home. So I'm sinning Jeremy for not doing his research

  • The TORA, TORA, TORA billboard is an internal/studio billboard, promoting the project 'inside' the studio, on the studio lot. Studio's do this all the time to show the projects they have. It's not a promotional poster for the actual completed film in distribution. The artwork is also different in the final poster. That's why it's up before the film was released. And could have easily been up from it's first announcement of a deal with Toho. So, though I don't know if it's true, it does make purely logical sense.
