I don't care to what degree the movie is or isn't about the murders.  I'm not worried about how Tarantino will handle them.  I already explained my reaction to the release date.  Not going to go over it again.  We seem to be talking past each other.

  Yes, your reaction is honest, but I think you'd be wise to examine it, since it doesn't make alot of sense to a few people.

 

And I don't think you're understanding me.  So why don't you examine that?

Given that QT seemed to handle the holocaust and slavery just fine, I'm willing to go out on a limb and wait and see, call me crazy.  He's a smart guy who's earned my trust.  I'm also fairly certain he has a pretty firm hand over the marketing of his films given that he has final cut and first dollar gross, something only the top guys are afforded.  So it was likely an idea he sanctioned.

Then your reaction is even more bizarre to me.  Since the movie coming out on the anniversary of the murders is (apparently) so disrespectful, isn't how that's handled in the film the entire basis of the opinion?

Like I said before, if it was a more distant thing, like Jack the Ripper murders or something, I don't know that I'd have the same reaction, even though it might be the same in principle.

 

It feels recent and connected to our culture enough to feel like releasing it on the exact day of the murders is exploitative in a way that bothers me.  Regardless of how the movie handles it.  Just the idea of marketing something to profit off a murder anniversary is gross to me.  Wasn't there a JFK assassination based video game that came out on the anniversary of his murder?  That bothered me too.  I don't expect everyone to agree with me.  I'm not posting on these message boards to share in collective outrage.

Forget it, Bailey, it's Ambler, and he is wise and knows all. 

 

Also, I know he's blocked me, but the fact that they're choosing to release the movie on the anniversary of the murders is a pretty good indicator of how they plan to handle the murders, i.e., not very well!

Ambler transformed into a human ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ so gradually I didn't even notice.

Okay then. I get it. I dont think it makes sense but thats just my opinion. I just couldnt figure out what the big deal was. Carry on.

Mangy, I expect no transformation from you. Being on the sidelines to occasionally scowl and throw things at the athletes suits you just fine.

Who had "Ambler mentions what an arrrrrtttiiist he is" on their bingo card?

We can always argue personal contribution, but this board definitely has a lot of "I have no experience with this thing we're talking about but let me tell you why you're wrong anyway" going on.
post #261 of 368
Never change, you guyz!
post #262 of 368
I wonder what other movies will dare to open on that Friday?

Huh?

Hopefully Helter Skelter (the original version) makes it back in some shape or form...It holds up very well.  Those first five or ten minutes must have been white-knuckling back in '76 when they only had a dozen channels to play with.  They should play it on TV with the release of the film to remind people how mind-bending those events were.

I'd imagine a lot of movies will be coming back in the wake of this movie. It's been happening since Kill Bill, which became a very easy time to find all sorts of Shaw Bros. and Sonny Chiba movies. Master Of The Flying Guillotine got like two or three different DVD releases between production and final release of the Kill Bills.

"Spock... I believe... I'm in love with Sharon Tate."

"Does this docking bay say dead Klingon storage?"

 

God, I'm dumb.

 

So, would this not count as his tenth movie, then?  I like the idea of him doing stupid shit to circumvent his own plan.

So weird. Tarantino has been orbiting around doing a franchise entry, from Halloween to James Bond, his whole career. Never expected Star Trek.

If it's after the Manson one, I'd tally it as #11.

post #272 of 368

Kill Bill is one movie, Molt! H8ful 8!  It's all right there for those of us clever enough to decipher the man's dizzying code.

post #273 of 368

Well by that logic I suppose there was just one POLICE ACADEMY film broken up into seven chapters? And then I guess Mahoney just vanishes in the middle of it for no good reason. Fine, I'll go with it.

I've been saying this for YEARS!  Finally, validation.

A Tarantino STAR TREK film?  I'd love to see it.  I suspect we won't.

This Yellow King Film Boys channel is pretty funny. He posted this bit of an interview where Tarantino talked about Star Trek when he was doing the rounds for Hateful Eight, (it's from the Nerdist Podcast) some site picked up on it again, then they all picked up on it again. That channel is also why there's been a bunch of articles lately about Tarantino not likely Netflix, even though its also from an old interview.

It's too bad nobody every picked up on that interview with Pedro Almodóvar where he talked about wanting to do a Deadpool movie with him and Tarantino writing and directing it together. That sounds like it'd be pretty fucking crazy. Still surprised I naver saw a million articles about that.

Playing an aging actor? Weird.

Probably unemployed too. There’s tons of those in LA.
post #283 of 368
DiCaprio in (his first post-Oscar role too!), Tom Cruise and Margot Robbie are still being courted, Brad Pitt has passed, and there is now talk that Al Pacino is being floated around for a role specifically written for him.

I can’t even.
post #284 of 368

Let's not kid ourselves, guys.

 

This is a smokescreen. 

 

DiCaprio is playing Manson. 

post #285 of 368
Shirley Manson?
post #286 of 368

Yes, Brad. 

post #287 of 368
Shirley, you can't be serious?
post #288 of 368

I am, Brad. 

post #289 of 368
SHIRLEY, YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS!!!
post #290 of 368
Cruise could be Manson apparently.
post #291 of 368
The role is reportedly a prosecutor. Don’t take those Manson rumors head on.

When did it come out that Pitt had passed?
post #294 of 368

I knew Pacino was going to be involved in some capacity and I'm glad it's coming to fruition. Last summer, I had the tremendous pleasure of seeing a The Panic in Needle Park and Scarecrow double feature at Tarantino's New Beverly theater, which lead to a surprise live thirty minute talk between Tarantino and Pacino about the latter's early career. It was seriously the best movie-going experience I've ever had. Afterwards, I googled both their names, which lead to a late 2016 interview where Tarantino talked about how he wanted to hear his dialogue coming out of Pacino's mouth. Between this and The Irishman, I'm suddenly hyped for Pacino movies again, which is an awesome feeling.

'So I’d like to add to the story Deadline broke last week, when Leonardo DiCaprio told Quentin Tarantino he would make his next film the first picture DiCaprio will star in since his Oscar-winning turn in The Revenant. I initially called him an aging actor, when I raced to break the story. What he plays, more specifically, is an actor who had his own Western show, Bounty Law, that ran on the air from 1958 to 1963. His attempt to transition to movies didn’t work out and in 1969 — the film is set at the height of hippy Hollywood movement– he’s guesting on other people’s shows while contemplating going to Italy which has become a hotbed for low-budget Westerns. The movie, a Pulp Fiction-esque tapestry of Los Angeles during the summer of the Manson murders, will now get busy with casting (Margot Robbie was asked to play Sharon Tate, as I’ve reported, but there isn’t a deal yet). I’d keep an eye on Tom Cruise, who might well surface as the other big male superstar in Tarantino’s film.'

So Leo is Chuck Connors.

I'm terribly intrigued at the thought of Cruise in a Tarantino flick.

God, reading Peter Bart always makes me want to take a shower.

Yep, me, too.

 

Cruise has kind of been on autopilot for a little while outside of the first Jack Reacher, which I loved, and the Mission: Impossible franchise. Well and Edge of Tomorrow. Point is he's been sort of letting himself dominate one niche of the market, and of course with the Mission movies he continually shows up in the pop culture foreground again and again. The Mummy was unfortunate; the first fifteen minutes plus the plane crash are kind of cool but it's otherwise dreary stuff. American Made was all right but somewhat disappointing. 

 

I'd really like to see Cruise go for broke again with something outside of his comfort zone. Said this before but I can't see him headlining Mission: Impossible movies seven, eight years from now. He's injuring himself over and over on this new one, reportedly. He has to be thinking about the next phase of his career when he turns 60 (he's 55 now). I want to see him graduate to the late 1970s-onward era Paul Newman chapter of his career, taking on meaty dramatic parts with directors who will push him in new, bold directions. 

 

Playing a major character in a Tarantino film could serve as the bridge to that chapter.
