One of the best movies I've seen (and in the actual 1960s, I was a teenaged Bergman enthusiast). If you weren't there in the 60s (or don't remember them - 60s joke) or don't know a lot about the cultural references (e.g. Once Upon a Time in the West, for starters), you can still like the movie, but you might want to see it, then find out more about the times, the people and places and the events, then see it again. I don't care about Tarentino (or the stars) one way or the other, and had to take the ending for what it was, knowing what it was likely to be. Everything else about the movie was outstanding, in the opinion of both my partner and me.
Excellent movie! Brad Pitt and Leonardo Decaprio are like brothers and brilliant actors and funny from the start. I saw this movie 5 times!
no redeeming qualities we walked out....no story line just alot of foul language did not expect those actors to be in a crappy movie like this rate ---
Deceiving content. Not at all good. Sorry we wasted our time and money. Should have asked for a refund.
Fantastic recreation of summer 1969 (which may be a big part of its appeal for some).It DOES run long--I'd have liked to have spent less time at Spahn Ranch and more in Hollywood, but apart from that what a beautiful fairy-tale, even with the somewhat excessive violence.
Boring. No real story. Just showcase for Leo and PItts. Do not waste your money.
A great work. A love letter to cinema and setting. Its structure and pacing makes it seem like pop-art from Roberto Rossellini. Obviously not for everyone. And yeah, the one person who keeps posting that the film glorifies Manson is clearly a troll who hasn't watched the film. This does not glorify Charles Manson and the family AT ALL.
Liked everything about this film. Not for everyone. Absolutely does NOT glorify Manson. Portrays him and his acolyas what they were: creepy lost deranged homicidal malcontents. Ends the way we wish it had ended in real life. Also a beautiful tribute to Sharon Tate. Quentin got approval from Sharon’s sister to do this. A work of art and one of the best films I’ve ever seen. Like him or not Tarantino is a genius.
Engrossing and enjoyable. A fun reinvention of history. Can that one whack-job here stop posting the same review over and over? This movie does NOT glorify Manson, and as horrible Sharon Tate's fate was, her unborn child was NOT cut from her. Whole lotta fake info passed here.
a wacky dumb funny movie, enjoyed it. a bit long though. would have been better if it was a tad shorter. ending was crazy, best part.
This Movie forced 1 star rating. Subtract 1 star from my review and you have the accurate rating. This movie was boring. not to mention glorifies Charles Manson who MURDERED Sharon Tate and cut her unborn baby from her still warm body.
best movie ever ever
It was everything I expected from Tarantino, quirky and fun all the way. I liked it start to finish. Decaprio was a riot!
If it had zero stars it would not be enough! Worst movie of a lifetime
I hope this stays in the theatres for ever . watch it every day, you should too !!!
My favorite Tarantino movie since Pulp Fiction- It’s a sunny, funny 60’s set piece capturing the clothes, cars, radio, TV shows/movies, news, furniture, music (especially the music) and mood of the LA in the late 60s. If ur into 60s AM Radio as well as grooving pop-psych/freak-beat... damn u will love this movie! I cant say anything more coz I don’t wanna spoil it but if u have ANY interest in the 1960s u gotta see it!
Pure garbage Terrantino needs to retire An insult to intelligence Slow, boring and mostly non sensical. Only good thing about is was some of the music. Run, don’t walk, away from this one.
This movie is not going to be for everyone! Slow burn but worth every minute!
watched it 200 times, I can't wait to see it again
Saw this movie 3 times at AMCs - totally loved it each time for different reasons. Great cast, acting, directing, cinematography and vintage background!!
It was awesome...great cast. Great music. Great theme...it was ALL there!!!
Music was great. Other than that forget it!,, Boring !,
Boring till the last 10min. Waste of my time.
Expected a lot more from a Tarantino movie. Where was the humour? Where was the story? Where were the unexpected twists and turns? This was a dud, from start to finish. Regret spending the time and money on this - save yours!
BORING! 3 of us attended, and all through the movie kept looking at each other wondering when something, anything, interesting was going to happen. It never did. It really is a shame one can't walk out of a bad movie and get their money back - this movie would have had 3 less sales. Unfortunately, just because a movie does well at the box office doesn't mean it is good. This one definitely wasn't.
it's about time someone made a good Charles Manson Movie, gonna watch it again
Art is supposed to induce emotion, whether good or bad. This is exactly what this film did. Except for the guy that keeps seeing the movie over and over again. That’s just crazy. Must be a Charlie Manson follower.
I cannot watch this movie enoff, I watched it yesterday and am standing in line to watch it again.
I watch this Movie twice a day, you should too. I can't wait to watch it again.
A genuinely great work, but it's not for simpletons looking for cinematic junk food.
I watched it twice today going to watch it again tomorrow
I've watched this movie ever day since it's release and I can't wait to watch it again
Worst movie ever seen
Best Movie in the history of Movies. I watched it 200 times already, can't wait to watch it again !!!!!
Best movie I have seen in many years. Acting is superb, use of period music right on, and the end left us in tears. For me, my favorite Tarentino film. Have seen 4 times now ;)
I don't think I can find one thing in this perfectly crafted movie that it couldn't do with out. I had to cover my eyes once...it was beyond surreal.
I'm speechless...I still cant get it out of my head.
One of the best movies of all time! Awesome acting and direction; nothing held back. Droll, decadent and dark with lots going on in multiple levels- a movie for people who really like movies.
What a waste of time. 1:55 hour build up for a 5 minute pay off.
Lots of twists and goofiness. Loads of fun.
This is by far the best movie to come out of Hollywood in years!
Half of the words spoken in the movie start with the letter F. It is by far the worst movie I have ever seen. It deserves negative stars.
I love QT's art, and accept whatever he delivers. So for me, this movie rocked. BUT... the reason so many folks don't like it is simple. It lacks what we expect to see in a movie - the three act structure. This movie is one very long first act - setting up characters/world (for over 2 hours... sigh), followed by a resolution. There is no second act (confrontation - where a character has a call to action and is on a mission to solve/change something). So without a buildup to the third act, the resolution is meaningless because we haven't invested in the character's journey. Brad and Leo are at their best, so IMHO it's still worth the ride.
Really liked this movie the twists were great in the mason killings and the story was typical QT very worth it saw it twice
This movie was not Quentin Tarantino finest work! You go to a Tarantino movie to experience very clever dialog from the actors and memorable scenes. For example the opening scene from Inglorious Bastards in the house where people are hiding under the house or Pulp Fiction where the characters are talking about the Royal with Cheese or Reservoir Dogs where the crew is talking about tipping a server. This movie lacks that banter with its characters. Yes, its about the film industry in the last 60's and the struggle to remain in the industry as an actor, but nothing was interesting or done in an interesting manor. The pacing of this film was very slow, and at times so slow that I thought about if I could cut my our hair. If your planning to see this film save your money and time and watch Murdoch Mysteries instead, if people actual even watch that, at less it free.
Excellent movie and great acting by Leonardo and Brad!
Three adults thought it was a waste of money and time
Waste of over two hours! Don't waste your time or money .....
