Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood

I watched it. Don't get me wrong -- I loved every minute and I'll re-watch it many times. 

On the other hand, I think it stops short of being a really special film. I think I'm saying that because of the ending. It just feels like you only get to use the revisionst history device once, and I think this is the third time now that Tarantino has used it. I loved the device in Inglourious Basterds, but seeing it again here feels... Cheap? Tired? Obvious? It's such a clever and cool idea that it just feels...not-quite-right to keep using it.

Meh, whatever. I'm already kinda excited to watch this movie over again.
