Did you wish Once Upon a Time in Hollywood focused more on the Manson family and less on the film/tv industry of the 60s?

I enjoyed the Sharon Tate scenes and the Spahn Ranch sequence the most.

The part of the movie that worked was Spahn Ranch. Austin Nichols really stood out. And most of the scenes with Brad Pitt. Leo’s story was deadly.

Are you asking if we wish a movie's story was about something else?

Is that the question?

I liked it as it was, so: no. Besides, it's fiction. Manson and the Sharon Tate murders were not.

I liked it all. One of those flicks I’ll never get tired of watching.

Spahn ranch was a great scene as well as Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate watching herself at the movies.

The flame thrower was over the top but that's Tarintino for ya.

No, OP. It's an excellent movie without them. I was around during the Manson murders and have had sufficient.

I honestly think that part should’ve been scrapped. Or maybe they should’ve made it thinly veiled fictional characters. Or focused on the aftermath of the Cielo drive massacre. Idk, it just didn’t come together properly for me. I still watch it every now and then to catch background details, but it feels like two or three different movies spliced together.

No, I don't. I thought the balance was perfect.

Were pit bulls in existence back then? That's the part I had trouble with.

You didn't hear about pit bulls back then. Doberman's were the demons of note.

Pete the Pup in the "Our Gang" film series of the 20s and 30s was a pitbull, no?

I wanted to stand up and cheer for the flamethrower! But I just sobbed quietly to myself in the dark, wishing it had actually been so.

I didn't think DiCaprio fit, he did ok but Brad Pitt was so much better.
