    take away the last half hour and you have 2 hours of boring writing with no purpose.

    Movie was phenomenal

    Inglourious Basterds
    Pulp Fiction
    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
    Reservoir Dogs
    Django Unchained
    Kill Bill
    Death Proof
    The Hateful Eight

    Even though he’s my favorite director I’m still yet to see Jackie Brown but just ordered it

    Lots are saying there’s no plot or any purpose for the first two acts but I actually thought it was refreshing to not have the plot forced down my throat like most movies out of Hollywood today. The story was about Rick and his career that’s in need of a jumpstart which is prevalent throughout the film including the end when he becomes friends with Sharon a rising Hollywood star who happens to be married to the most sought after director at the time.

    hopefully you'll like it. i think jackie brown has one of his very best characters: ordell. he's my favorite director too. obviously i think he's a very talented film maker, but what i like most about quentin is that he's passionate about film. i love when people are passionate about something. you probably know this but before he was rich and famous, he worked in a video store and he said it was his dream job up UNTIL he became a director. now a video store worker probably isn't making a lot of money--but yet he loved working there because he was surrounded by his passion. money is great and all, but people don't usually pick careers based on money, they pick it because its something their interested in. and that's why i love quentin. when i see someone who's passionate, my :emoji_heart: goes out to them.

    Watched it in London last night.

    I don't know man.......QT stay doing QT. He reminds me of Eminem, always trying to relive the past success and not moving forward artistically. I feel like since Inglourious Basterds he has basically made the same film.
    No N-Word in this but does paint Asians in a bad light.

    Tarantino likes to mention Paul Thomas Anderson as his closest friendly competitor in the movie business (in past interviews) but he sorta shoots himself in the foot by making that comparison.
    PTA is a guy who doesn't make the same film twice and he grows artistically with every film. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is actually a poor man's Inherent Vice.

    I'd give OUATIH 7/10

    I heard from a friend of mine that saw it last night that the movie was shit and like 2/3 of the audience in the cinema walked away by the end of it.

    People don't realise the genius of Inherent Vice. Could easily be top 3 by Anderson. You gotta admit QT has become repetitive. It's so blatant. He is ruining his legacy and exposing himself to being one dimensional.
