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.

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?
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.

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.

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?

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.
Resonates with me because I have a dead parent whose name I hold down daily.


But also its not an "argument". Yall are having an issue with someone having an opinion on how their dead parent is portrayed. Its okay for you to have an opinion on how people speak and think of your dead parent lol. Its human

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.

Everybody gets that sh*t, but also why make an arrogant caricature of a man people love and respect?

If someone made a fictional movie set in a real time frame and lets say they made Huey Newton or Fred Hampson some kind of corrupt figure instead of the heroes they were, I feel like alotta folks wouldn't be singing this song.

Bruce Lee was more than just an actor, he is an Icon and a hero to Alot of people. Why wouldn't people be pissed? As far as I know, no one else was reduced to a obnoxious caricature of themselves.

Alot of folks watched the movie just for what they thought was going to be paying homage to Bruce Lee not mockery.

Exactly.

Its QTs story he couldve made Bruce Lee a midget if he wanted to.

There's alot of things anybody can "make-up" for a story or movie. Doesn't mean people aren't going to think it's wack or in bad taste.

By your logic Tarantino could've disrespectfully portrayed ANYONE in history from MLK Jr to Ali to whoever and no matter how disrespectful or even racist he got, it would've been okay by your logic.

Everyone tries to act like they're so cool and non-PC when it's someone they might not care about as much. If that was your family, or you, or even someone you looked up to alot, and Tarantino had them looking like a clown and everyone in the theater laughing at them and then you go out in the real world and people are clowning that person in front of you, you can deny it all you want but no way you can tell me you're not going to feel some type of way.

No one is ever saying he can’t do what he wants. Clearly he can, since he just did. But if you’re going to double down on historical inaccuracies, people are goin come for you.

I liked the movie, liked it a lot, but Tarantino’s pedophile buddy Polanski came out looking much better than Bruce Lee.

You can tell Tarantino is trying to peddle a bunch of BS when he throws the logic out there that Cliff can hang hand to hand with Bruce simply because he was a WWII vet.

I think QT confused Bruce Lee with Liu Kang. He thinks they all look..... Well, lets just say like "martial artists"

Yeah not sure why he put that in the movie.

I mean I dont know much about LSD, but google that sh*t

EDIT : And to all those people that say, "well this is fictional who cares!", what if QT made a movie about Malcolm X or Martin Luther King and had them act like idiots...

Would that be acceptable?
