Tarantino doing more for Bruce Lee's legacy in 2019 than his own family...

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

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.
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.

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.

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.
If you went to this movie because you wanted to enjoy seeing them honor the memory of Bruce lee you are a fu*king idiot. This is not the movie for that.

Quentin Tarantino is a smart dude,there's no way he didnt put these things in his movie and word his responses in a certain way to get reaction. Especially when it comes to a character that the world adores like Bruce Lee.. all this is doing is getting more people to talk about the movie and getting people who havent seen it to go see the movie so they can form their own opinions,dude is genius!

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?
Bruce lee wasnt a civil rights hero. Hes a martial artist, an athlete, and an actor.

But would you have an issue with it?

Just playing devil's advocate here.

The argument is none of this matters because it's fiction.

I think once you start using actual people that existed and were extremely liked and respected, the lines become blurred...

And forget MLK and Malcolm, what if he made Muhammad Ali look like a clown.

And look like a clown unnecessarily (The Bruce Lee scene was good but totally unnecessary.)
MLK died f*ghting for the rights of millions in this country, yes I'd be pissed. Bruce lee has no comparison to him. Ali? Wouldn't care.

You're really comparing this to Tarantino shooting up the guy who carried out the Holocaust or changing Tate's fate from negative to positive ?

Saying words like "MOFO" and serving CRINGEY outbursts like "Chief keef is a legend you jabroni, put sum respect on his name" - is what weird people spew and give themselves away fast....

NEVER QOUTE ME AGAIN goofy. Especially when I am contributing to BX brothas THIRD EYE little boy. You are part of the agenda not the medicine like the grown ups.
