Already a conundrum presents itself, as fans are going to have to ask themselves one important question: do you frame that Operazione Dyn-O-Mite poster that’s included, or do you leave it inside and neatly preserved and folded?
Looking at the details for the special features on Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, there’s some pretty exciting details as to what’s on the discs.
