He could have just said Cliff is Tim Kennedy, I think most would agree Tim would beat Bruce.

People are really in their feeling about imaginary sh*t. First the little mermaid and now this. Also the millions of nerds who collect comics who critique these Comic movies pointing out everything instead of fu*king. If want you to be upset about a man whose legacy is already set in stone and died 46 years ago and iis portrayed in a fictional movie, be my guess.

Biographer with the Fact checks.


QT can do what he he wants in his movies, but he should be more accurate or graceful in his defenses of them.

Quentin doesn’t give fu*k. I saw where a reporter asked if Sharon Tate’s family was asked permission or did he reach out to them at all... he was like " Nope.. next question"

This is one of the most ridiculous things lol.. One of the best movies I have seen in the last few years and instead of just appreciating a well made, fun movie for what it is people have to act "outraged" over some extreme nerdy goofy sh*t like they above most movie goers.

I need to see it again but ive heard people say it is also just Cliff's character imagining while up on the rooftop what would have happened if he was allowed on set that day.. Regardless, it's not that serious and was never meant to be historically accurate, it's not a biopic.. Love it or hate it Tarantino has always done a meticulous job of recreating settings but altering small bits of history here or there.. Isn't that part of the fun of being a writer/director and being able to do whatever tf you want since it's your specific thoughts?

I didn’t like how Bruce lee was portrayed but I wouldn’t complain about because the whole movie is inaccurate. But I understand for the family of things

But the outrage didnt start with the fans.

It started with a daughter who didnt appreciate how someone made her dead father look. She didnt appreciate how the father she missed was turned into comic relief for crowds....and from the perspective of race this is how Asians were treated when they tried to get into Hollywood. You would want your kids to have the right to have an opinion on how the world views their father. Thats human


I love Tarantino, but this sh*ts pretty wack. He looks out of touch like the Hollywood hacks he told us he was better than.

Bruce Lee's portrayal in OUATIH was more of a caricature of Bruce Lee.

I've read his entire book on Jeet Kune Do before. it's translated "the Way of the Intercepting Fist," and from what I understand, 85% percent of it training your body to master fluid counters, stances, parries & feints that intercept an opponent's f*ghting style and render him off-balance.

that whole f*ght scene in OUATIH started with Bruce launching a running flying kick at a non-moving target Cliff Booth.

his daughter Shannon Lee confirmed that was out of his character and I totally agree. it's not Bruce's style at all.

Turned a respected dead philosopher/martial artist into a sh*tbag caricature.

He should do Ali, or John Wayne for his next period piece. Right?

It's just a movie. All the best movies have tons of historical inaccuracies. Take Gladiator for example. Beautiful movie top to bottom right? But the movie's main character is a Roman general who's actually from Spain who's being played by an Australian actor speaking with a British accent.

Let it go people.

i hear your argument but do you really care or are you just letting an upset female with dead daddy issues ignite an emotion in you, and have you look over everything about the movie like it's a revisionist history piece, or the scene in reference is probably a dream sequence...?

By no means does this tarnish Bruce's legacy, at all. Her speaking out just brings attention to the movie, free publicity really. At the end of the day this outrage will mean nothing.
