Enjoyed this movie, great 60s vibe, great actors obviously, and they did not disappoint. The movie was done by Quentin Tarantino however, so remember it is violent, his movies always are. In this case it was enjoyably violent, too bad this wasn’t the real story behind the Manson murders. Great twist.
Very hard to follow - way too long ....
A good movie, enjoyed it because I like Pitt, but wouldn't especially recommend it.
This movie was awful - I tried to like it but it failed in so many ways. After sitting through half of it we gave up and walked out. Save your money or rent it at a box if you want to see it. Definitely not big screen worthy.
I think it is funny that some people walked out, or they thought it was boring. This movie was so much about making movies, the real and unreal, reality and what we fantasize that it should be. I guess it just goes over their heads. This film was art. Bravo Quentin Bravo
Wow. Wow. Wow. Loved every minute. How can anyone give this masterpiece a low score. They just don't know better. Sad.
I love Rick dalton! This was such a good movie i have seen it 3 times. A classic! Brad Pitt, is still a hunk. Quentin you are a master. This movie will be the top choice for film studies. A rosebud!
This is a very slow moving movie and not very well done.
Watching this is like getting a big warm loving hug from a movie, but it seems most want wham-bam grunting empty spectacle. This film is too good for most people.
This movie was excruciatingly long, boring and void of any plot. As another reviewer said "Is Hollywood so Morally Bankrupt that they are Profiteering of the Manson Murders. Sharon Tate was an innocent woman. Shame on QT."
I loved this movie because it reminds me when all this happened and how the times were. The best part was the surprise ending. I think the people who hated it either weren’t born yet or did not understand it. People complaining about the language and violence must not have seen a Tarantino movie before. This was actually pretty tame for him. I also loved the old cars and the clothes they wore. My god I’m willing to bet today’s celebrities act a whole lot worse in real life.
Like cinematic visionaries before him, Tarantino is stretching the principles of the form to really show us something here. Let it happen. You will smile.
Mostly boring until the end. Brad Pitt was good. Wait for video if you must.
I agree with this previous explanation by other viewer. "Watching paint dry is more entertaining than this movie"
Total waste of film-first movie I ever walked out on in my life--an I'm 72. Try to remember how great Leo was in "Titanic", and Brad in "Legends of the fall"", and don't your time or money on this offering. So sad to see what a couple of great actors will do to earn a buck.
Great movie. Smart, very funny, beautifully acted and visually just incredible... Thanks to the director, actors (including the little girl and the dog)and everyone, who created this masterpiece!
Everything, reminded me of the years we lived there
Rick Dalton flipping out in his trailer is my spirit animal. I thought it was a fun movie. Might be too close to an independent film for some people. There's lots of talking. Some people don't like that. First movie in a long time where I laughed audibly in the theater more than once.
If it were not for the specific actors, this would be one of the worst 3 shows we have ever seen. Too bad the 2 male leads agreed to do this one.
The plot, language, graphic and lewd scenes were horrible. What a waste of Brad Pitt's abilities. Even one star is too high but because Brad did the best he could do with an awful script, I'll rate it 1 star.
Loved the 60's vibe and attention to detail but the movie was way too long and very slow paced.
I loved the character development, and how the story unfolded.
A great movie. Only prudes and dirty idiot hippies will hate it.
The first two thirds or so of the movie was great. I loved the camera angles and the shots of downtown LA with all the old cars dating from 1968 and earlier; the costumes that mimicked late 'sixties fashion were right on. Tension slowly builds as we are introduced to the Manson Family. However, once the killing begins the film drops from a four or five star rating to a one star rating (if that). The violence was over the top, even for Tarentino. The apparent attempt at blood drenched humour was sickening and the constant disparaging of long haired poor people as 'dirty hippies' was tiresome.
An homage to Hollywood in the late 1960s. Try to keep up with all of the movie genres Tarantino weaves through this story. Great acting, neat insights into movie-making, and great music. The Sharon Tate murders is tossed out there in the trailers, but Tarantino has more up his creative sleeve. Some people seem confused by that. They should look at that movie poster a little closer. The story gets a bit too loose for me in the middle, but my thrill never wavered in this ride.
Immensely entertaining! Loved the attention to the details from the 1960s. This was classic Tarantino—unpredictable, funny and also violent. If you’re expecting ‘The Sound of Music’ or a Doris Day movie...this ain’t the movie for you. I’d definitely see it again!
Brilliant! Kept me interested for the entire movie.
Great cinematography that captures the era perfectly.
This Movie is in such poor taste. I remember watching the News in 1969 when Charles Manson murdered Sharon Tate and cut her unborn baby from her still warm Corpse. Hollywood is morally devoid to make this.
If you enjoy a Movie that is really awful this is it.
Worse movie. Bloody, bare feet and every other words starts with F.
Do not miss ... CLassic
Why don't people like Charles Manson ? What a Great Guy it's not like he ever did anything bad to anyone ? Sharon Tate was fine in the film so what's the problem ?
A fantastic cinematic reinvention. Not for those with weak constitutions or weak attention spans for that matter.
Yet another boring Movie cashing in on Nostalgia. What sets this one apart by far is just how boring it was.
Dragged for the first 45 minutes. Very bad taste for what could have been a fun trip down memory lane. Pitt and DICaprio did as much as they could with the script. Movie with a mass murder using Manson, esp when one of the characters was Sharon Tate. So glad her murder not shown. Shame on the movie industry.
The five star ratings should be removed
A terrific ride. Lots of fun. And despite what is obviously the same one-star spammer is saying, this film does not glorify mass murder or paint Charles Manson as a "swell guy". These misleading -actually downright false- reviews should be removed.
Worst movie ever. It was boring and not put together well. It was also slow paced.
Best Terrantino movie so fat. LOVE this movie.
Terrible. Very slow pacing. The only things that made it worth watching was the music, the old tv series references, and Brad Pitts' understated acting.
I wanted to like this movie so badly— just didn’t happen. It’s long and labored. The acting was pretty good, especially Brad Pitt. If were 30 mins shooter, maybe it wouldn’t have lagged in so many places
I am sure Sharon Tate's family will be relieved that she was not murdered in the film and that Charles Manson is a swell guy. This film is a disgrace, I remember watching on the news in 1969 that pregnant Sharon Tate had been murdered and her fetus had been cut from her body, I guess I don't have a sense of humour as I thought this was horrible .
Five stars? Stay home and watch the world news. Enough horrific events going on there. Do not need to see more at a local theatre. Ranch scenes are so creepy. We all know about Manson. So the movie did not end with Sharon being murdered, so what ... we all know she was murdered.
Watching paint dry is more entertaining then this movie
This is a movie-movie about movies. It's only tangentially about Manson. People who gave this film a low score either didn't see the film or don't understand the film. Watching the glory of its filmmaking is addictive. My wife and I saw it 3 times. We know someone who saw it eight times. Perhaps attention spans are limited for trolls. The Bruce Lee section, which some people questioned, is a fantasy from Brad Pitt's character's viewpoint as he stands on a roof, fixing DiCaprio's character's tv antenna. Pitt's stuntman career is so low that he's forced to be DiCaprio's go-fer. Having been informed that he won't be getting a stunt double job, he fantasizes about how much better he is than anybody else, that he could even beat Bruce Lee. The scene is meant to tell us about the anger inside Brad Pitt's frustrated character, anger that comes out in the climax. Everything depends on context. The trolls for this film appear not to understand context or else they'e talking about a film they haven't seen.
Loved it though it was a bit long. You have to know the Manson story for the end to make sense.
Either you get it and love this movie, or you don't get it and apparently hate this film. I think that is funny.
