Just watched it. Thought it was decent, but not great. Everything with Cliff Booth was awesome and compelling. the Rick Dalton stuff was just flat to me.

That last 20 or so minutes was superb though.

I think there were two parts to the last twenty minutes:

1/ the alternate historical ending, which you had to expect given the build-up and the fact that you were at a Tarantino movie
2/ the sheer violence of it all, which actually seemed tame given the gruesome nature of the actual murders (and also something to be expected in a Tarantino movie)

I found it remarkably satisfying. It was exactly what I wanted to see at the end of it. Some want more cowbell, and others want more flamethrower.

I liked the movie for what it was, and I look forward to seeing it again in two years once it's more hazy in my mind.

Heh, just figured out that 1970s Spideman played Sam Wanamaker. Nicholas Hammond. Was wondering who that was while watching.

I've been teaching screenwriting in Chicago all summer, and was kind of nervous about heading back to LA. What if I'd fallen out of love with it?

Watched this movie in 70mm at the Music Box, and I couldn't be more excited to go home.

Lots and lots and lots of people have tried to make a movie about the movies. There is always a layer of artifice to it that you cannot escape. Not with this one. It's just everything there is to love about Hollywood. Not Los Angeles - Hollywood. LA is a city. Hollywood is a state of being...

I ****ing LOVE it.
A movie about movies that I believe is absolutely perfect is The Player. I've seen it at five times and can still watch it again. It's got the scenery, the story, the acting, the backstabbing, the intrigue, murder and love.

A film about the City of LA, without a doubt it's Chinatown. It's style, music, acting, the story, everything about that town rolled into one. Since the 70's I've probably watched it 40 times. Have it recorded right now along with The Player.

Rambling and pointless. Then again, I am not a huge Tarantino fan. Soundtrack is cool. Everything else is a bore.

I agree. I saw it this weekend. My earlier post was about QT's movies being packed with stars but never go anywhere. Same with this one.

This never went anywhere and the ending was pretty bad. Great acting, amazing sets (he nailed the Hollywood look) but many scenes were pointless and painfully slow.

It would have been much better if he would have stuck to history and made it a true crime film. The fairy tale flamethrower shit was pretty out there, to say the least. I think the stars did their best with a very weak script and a movie without a true vision of what it was supposed to be. C -

BTW

Making Bruce Lee a caricature of himself and getting his ass kicked by Pitt was very stupid.

One reason I wanted to see this "film" was for the Bruce scenes and they were as ridiculous and far-fetched as the rest of the movie. He made him into a joke.

The beautiful and witty Mrs. FAX loved this movie.

I, on the other hand, just felt sad ... pretty much from the beginning all the way to the end. For me, this was a very sad film. Depressing, actually.

Loved it


The Leo scene in his trailer had me rolling. “8 whiskey sours, why can’t you only have 3 or 4 you fucking alcoholic”

Then Pitt in the end scene.

I thought you would like to read the article that I wrote for @THR about Quentin Tarantino’s film: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood regarding the films portrayal of Bruce Leehttps://t.co/DDMnR7wdIL

Wasn't Brad Pitts character a former solder and he was obviously highly trained and even killed his wife? Size matters in physical confrontations.
