Apparently the guy who plays Sam Wanamaker played Spider-Man in the old TV series.

Also, Jake Gyllenhaal probably could've done a good performance if Leo wasn't available. But he was and I liked it, so there.

QT chat with Scorsese, if you're interested.

Interesting article.
http://thenewbev.com/blog/2019/09/once-upon-a-time-in-hollywood-round-table/?fbclid=IwAR17N02VJv69be72rDTdr4ZozWISQtfH5LUziy9ZFDOY8-OvO5aDgkuAgv0

Thanks for that, a good read. I think they somewhat hand-waved away the issues some have with the film, but I couldn't help but agreeing with the general thrust of this:

Quote
STEVE: I find all this hand-wringing, nay-saying, and accusations of misogyny over OUATIH perversely bemusing – given the historical reality; given Tarantino’s reputation; given what folks paid expecting to see; and given what’s actually onscreen. The OUATIH finale is furious once it arrives, and brilliantly staged, but it’s  easily the least sadistic Manson film ever made, and I’m including both made-for-TV versions of Helter Skelter [1976, 2004] in that lineage. I just spent a few weeks rescreening all of them, and that’s the fact. There isn’t a single Manson/Tate movie made to date that’s as restrained in its violence as OUATIH – nor as merciful to those who were, in the real world, the victims.

As an aside, I'm surprised no one else was shocked by Tim Olyphant's lip filler.

I hate it when films do this.

An extended cut of Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood — featuring four new scenes of previously unseen footage totaling 10 minutes — is headed to theaters. The updated movie, nearly three hours long, will hit more than 1,000 North American locations starting Friday, October 25th.

Will it really make a difference to the box office total? Is there a large number of people willing to sit through the film again to see four new scenes?

He was also a Von Trapp child in "The Sound Of Music".

This is available now. I'm not sure that I saw the whole thing though as every now and again we'd see the tops of subtitles that had been covered up with extra black bars. There was some weird editing too when Rick Dalton's speaking to (Timothy Olyphant's character).

I liked it overall though. Especially that Bradley Pitts.

That was in the theatrical release.

Is it a screener or a Blu Ray rip?

It said HDRIP in the download title but that could mean anything. It looked good though.

Sod it, the official release comes out in early December, so I'll just tell somebody to get it me for Christmas. The film was obviously way too short, so the 20 minutes of extended/deleted scenes will go some way to fix that.

My main 'takeaway' (ugh) is that Brad Pitt taking his shirt off on the roof turned me a bit gay.

I get the feeling Pitt made him write that bit in.

I wish Tarantino would fuck off with his disturbing foot fetish making its way into his films - it’s very distracting and I am no prude but I don’t really see how it can fly in today’s climate

It really adds something to this film though, genuinely. Lots of subtext about the innocence of going barefoot contrasted with dirty soles.

Don't know if this has been mentioned before but it looks like the film might be getting a sort of spin-off. It's from the interview where he finally walked away from directing Star Trek.

Quote
DEADLINE: In our very first interview on this movie, you told me how you had written five full episodes of Bounty Law, the fictional Western drama that starred Rick Dalton. Are you through exploring this world, or will you do something with those episodes?

TARANTINO: As far as the Bounty Law shows, I want to do that, but it will take me a year and a half. It got an introduction from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, but I don’t really consider it part of that movie even though it is. This is not about Rick Dalton playing Jake Cahill. It’s about Jake Cahill. Where all this came from was, I ended up watching a bunch of Wanted, Dead or Alive, and The Rifleman, and Tales of Wells Fargo, these half-hour shows to get in the mindset of Bounty Law, the kind of show Rick was on. I’d liked them before, but I got really into them. The concept of telling a dramatic story in half an hour. You watch and think, wow, there’s a helluva lot of storytelling going on in 22 minutes. I thought, I wonder if I can do that? I ended up writing five half-hour episodes. So I’ll do them, and I will direct all of them.

Will he have the restraint to shoot them with the aesthetics and technological limitations of a 50s TV series?

I did enjoy the bits of OUATH where he shifted between diagetic "footage" being shot as part of the show and the non-diagetic footage of the film itself. Thought that was very playful and fun.

There's a good uninterrupted stretch of 7 or 8 minutes of Bounty Law on the DVD extras and I'd fucking love a full episode never mind 5.

Are there more extras on the US release? Why am I asking? Of course there are. One I bought just had some deleted scenes.
