I think Leo was brilliant in this film and should be a contender for the Oscar. I wouldn’t be surprised if Pitt is also nominated.


*******SPOILERS********










The film really turned for me when he started playing the role of Caleb Dakota (?). That was close to Daniel Day-Lewis level of acting. I was laughing at the scene in the trailer and I’ll admit that I’ve had a few of those conversations in my life. I loved the entire sequence of Pitt at the ranch. Who thought the old man was actually alive and in that room?

Oh, and Margot Robbie is smoking hot.

I dont get the "REJECT your hypothesis" comment...


The question certainly did cause him to put on his best poo-poo face for the next few minutes.

The wife and I saw it last night. It is slow moving and drags at times. DiCaprio and Pitt both do well. But, to me especially if you know the history Manson, the ending was brilliant.
Not one of QT's best, but a very good one and one you probably want to see twice to catch any nuances you missed the first time.

They should have cut out the middle hour or so. It really dragged on but the end was fuckin amazing! You don't see what's coming next the whole movie. I was the only one in the theater laughing during the last scene.

I guess I was unclear, IT SUCKED!

To elaborate, if a movie takes 3/4 of its length to finally hit its stride, then it sucks. Furthermore, I've seen enough of Tarantino's films to be unimpressed with this one as its not even in his top 5. The dialog wasn't impressive (as you normally expect in his films) and neither was the acting or editing. I'd recommend waiting for on-demand or another streaming service because you can watch it from bed and get a good night's sleep after about the first 15-minutes.

Tarantino hasn't made a decent movie since the 90's.
