    did anyone else love how it looked like they pulled Michael Madsen off the set of the hateful eight for his scene in this movie

    wife and I came home from an early screening of UOATIH and decided to rewatch H8..Madsen just looks terrible in that.

    yikes apparently in the Bullitt household the only thing better than watching a movie for 3 hours straight is watching movies for 6 hours straight

    She proposed it but vetoed my preference for the new Netflix extended edition which is something like 20 minutes longer the roadshow edition.

    We like movies.

    It goes without saying, I geeked out big time during the Great Escape "flashback". My living room has 4 posters....The Great Escape and two Leone films.

    don't watch the extended netflix edition. they have it split up like acts in a play so it doesn't play straight through. it's also ANNOYINGLY SLOW

    Good to know. I might just load up the final chapter to see any new information.

    I cooked dinner last night and put on Netflix EE in the background ...we got a call kilmer pissing scene when be first meets SLJ. That much I know.

    how amazing was leo in this movie?

    The scene with Pacino, the scene in the saloon with Olyphant, both scenes with the little girl....incredible.

    He will be well deserving of the oscar nom coming his way in january.

    A handful of actors were cut, apparently.

    Burt Reynolds was originally supposed to play Spahn before his death, and James Marsden was cast to play Burt Reynolds.

    Marsden's part was cut entirely, unclear if it was related to Reynolds dying.

    This was the dumbest movie I have ever watched in my entire life. I know some people are OK with how Tarantino changes history, but I abhor it. Just a complete waste of time

    thanks for your input.

    if you would like some film recommendations that are more historically accurate, I would suggest you checking out a new genre of movies called "documentaries".

    Imagine paying to go to a movie where you ‘abhor’ the way a director has previously told stories... and then hate the movie because that’s what the director did

    It was pretty decent. Not my favorite Tarantino film, but still watchable.It was a little long, but thats my only real complaint.

    Laughed at all the gratuitous female foot shots. Pearl must have been in heaven.

    Had little to no exposure on the film going in (trailer, articles, storyline) except that Leo and brad were in it and it was tarintino. Totally blew me away in the best way possible. Absolutely loved it. Leo’s margarita scene yelling at the hippies had me rolling.

    Even though I adamantly disagree with you, I however admire that you have an original thought and opinion.

    One thing:

    If someone “hates” how once upon a time changed history, then I would assume they hate inglorious as well.

    And both movies are fantastic.

    and the title (EVEN if you don't know QT's previous use of "UOAT") should clue you in to it being a yarn. Is there a more common opening line in fiction than "Once Upon a Time...."?

    the above post is either a terrible take at worst or intellectually lazy at best.

    Basterds Rewatchables talks about this at some length, basically that every movie, but especially those set in a period are changing history often dramatically whether it's glossy ahistorical westerns, in the moment or right after WWII propaganda films, lost cause civil war movies, etc. You can quibble over how much he does it, but the list of movies you'd have to be upset with to be consistent is limitless.

    Basterds deals with it more overtly within the movie, but it all makes sense when viewing the two movies as part of a pair like they were originally designed

    Concur. Worth watching, just understand the Manson tie in is a minor side story and to give it a semblance of being tied to something factual. Its more akin to Spike Lee's Summer of Sam as putting a historical event in the plot, but then goes Inglorious Bastards at the end.

    I’m kind of the opposite. I don’t really think it had much of a storyline to be honest, especially compared to his other movies.

    I don’t know that there was any real conflict, not much development or change of the characters, no real villain- you don’t even see Manson in the film. No true climatic moment unless you count the end when a bunch of characters you know pretty much nothing about just show up in the last 20 minutes, which is more comedic that a true climax of a film imo. I just never felt it came together in the way that Reservoir Dogs, pulp fiction, Django, IB did. Shit even the hateful 8 did much more than this film.

    This movie was at least solid imo because of the incredible acting performance by Leo and Pitt. I felt they carried the film on their back. I wonder if, had anyone else been cast in those roles, if this movie would have worked at all?

    Ah yes you’re correct. I retract that statement. But still I feel like the big bad guy should have been in the film more. Others might not care
