Get ready to cruise down the sunset strip to WSJ radio (Will/Sam/Jon), because we’re reviewing Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood, the latest film from director/writer Quentin Tarantino, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, and a huge cast of surprise faces you’ll probably recognize. This is one of our most divisive conversations of the year, so you don’t want to miss it, ya dig?

This week’s theme music is “Hector” by The Village Callers from the soundtrack of Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood. Our review bumper is “Bring a Little Lovin'” by Los Bravos on the same soundtrack.

Show Notes:

  • 00:00:00 – Off-Topics: Will finally saw Wild Rose and Jon briefly reminds people to go see Mike Wallace is Here
  • 00:08:05 – Review: Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood
  • 01:01:03 – Spoiler Review: Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood

    Best Leo performance ever.

  • Casual Moviegoer says:

    I started this episode thinking Sam was too negative, but I came around to his criticisms (which I find valid) toward the end. Ultimately, I’ll have to see the movie again to know if I really like it, but I appreciate this conversation providing some insight I didn’t previously consider.

  • Amy Rash says:

    The soundtrack is so good (kudos guys for your sound choices in the intro), and I especially love the detail in the broadcasts for that time period. I felt totally sucked into the movie, but agree that the classic Tarantino dialogue is a bit missed. Second watch might be better.

  • Backinthe90s says:

    Great episode, loved the range of opinions on this one. I wish I liked the movie as much as Will, but I’m somewhere in between Sam and Jon on this one. Especially agree with Sam about how the movie feels so dysfunctional in its structure. C+ for me!
