I had hoped to see this movie, but had no concrete plans until a wash out rainy Sunday on its opening weekend provided the opportunity. I enjoyed it tremendously and recommend it. Srossi, what is your objection to seeing it in a theater? I agree with Married Jo that you should catch this while you can.

The ending was shockingly unexpected, but it played into the title, "Once Upon A Time...In Hollywood". This is a fairy tale and in fairy tales, unlike real life, anything and everything is possible. The real world and history don't matter. It took me a moment after it all went down to get it, but that title card hit home immediately.

There has been a lot of criticism over Margot Robbie's Sharon Tate not having as much dialogue or as much to do within the story as Leonard DiCaprio's Rick Dalton and Brad Pitt's Cliff Booth. I find that criticism to be groundless and has more to do with people having this opinion wanting to see a different movie than the Tarantino created. This is a movie about the key moment in Sharon Tate's life and we get a look at her leading a peaceful, normal life in advance of this particular event, but this is a movie about Rick Dalton and Cliff Booth. It isn't about Sharon Tate.
