Watched Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

Despite fine performances and humour and what seems like an excellent recreation of the late 1960's, being honest I did personally find the first 90 minutes or so to be a slight bit of a slog (the film is over two and a half hours long).

From the point when Brad Pitt gives a hitchhiker a lift home, the film really starts to hit it's mark. I couldn't fault it from then onwards!

Like Inglorious Basterds, Tarantino gives another fictional account of history and this is very much how you wish that history had happened. Film score - bit undecided after one viewing but probably a 7.5 out of 10.

I might be too harsh with that score, my first viewing take on the film certainly wasn't helped by reading some internet folks claiming that it's one of Tarantino's very best movies (which caused far too high expectations).
