Since when did we start pretending arrogance is so negative. Now let's read this thread where a bunch of brash egotistical maniacs argue the finer points of this fictional work. 'That's LA, they worship everything and they value nothing'.... I think everybody needs to relax. It’s a movie. Did you watch it? Did you see the ending? Is that really what happened with the Manson murders? It’s entertainment. Grab a beer and enjoy life.
The point of the scene was to show you how tough Brad Pitt's character was. He was so tough he could beat Bruce Lee. Loved the movie. Hated the Bruce Lee misrepresentation. His daughter is Right show the man some respect 😀👍 I get her being pissed but what's she expect him to do just not respond to the questions people ask him? It's not like he went out of his way
What an arrogant response. 😏 We all love Bruce Lee, and I'm sure QT does too(Kill Bill). The scene was just for comic relief Later it restores respect by showing Lee in a training montage. Lighten up y'all Shannon is right! Bruce Lee was way too philosophical and his depth of philosophy can't possibly be attained by a mere cool screenwriter.... It's what they call 'A******n blundering'
It was Shannon who started all of this anyway. QT made a FICTIONAL film, okay inspired by real events, but it;s still FICTIONAL. He never claimed it was a documentary. Then it was Lee who threw the first stone by disrespecting QT and HIS film, HIS vision.... Tarantino is a racist. He always depicts Chinese poorly and they always get some body part cut off.
Quentin Tarantino says, 'Bruce Lee was kind of an arrogant guy'At a press event in Russia, Quentin Tarantino defended his controversial portrayal of the late Bruce Lee in 'Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood.' Less talking more flicks please. I mean.... To insinuate that Bruce would have tried to start a fight with some stuntman because of a zinger is rediculous. Tarantino calling someone 'arrogant'....
No. Bruce Lee Nor His Wife Linda Lee Ever said He Could Beat Up Cassius Clay or Muhammed Ali! 'One Critic Wrote...” Read Chapter Six, Page 81 in “The life and tragic death of Bruce Lee by his wife, Linda. This book is the British UK edition of 'Bruce Lee: The Man Only I Knew' Tarantino crossed the line. Dont ever smudge Bruce Lee's name. He was a pioneer, an innovator. You make fictional movies. You're not in the same league
If he's gonna hem & haw & act like he didn't do anything & make excuses. She's allowed to tell him off. Cause all he's doing is wasting time with excuses. She told him 'Either say your sorry & you f***** up or go sit your a** back down!' Good on you chica. She is fucking right jessicacumstain queen 👑
LOL...I really hope he doesnt back down Next variety article “relatives of charles manson are pissed that tex & his nazi sisters were portrayed as useless idiots” The is one of the biggest non stories ever 🤣. 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' has become the new Charlie Hebdo. He knows how to stir publicity. There’s no such thing as bad publicity.
Quentin Tarantino Defends Portrayal Of Bruce Lee In ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’One of the memorable moments in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is when Brad Pitt’s Cliff Booth goes head to head with the legendary Bruce Lee played by Mike Moh. This… He is just making it worse. 'I heard him say things like that.' 😬 “After seeing the movie, Lee told the Los Angeles Times that the depiction of her father was “disrespectful” and “a mockery” of her late father’s legacy.” Glad to see Bruce Lee’s daughter’s take.
Side note: check out my review for OnceUponATimeHollywood now link in bio 🎥🔥 Quentin Tarantino still making movies. This dude should retire already his movies suck. Or she could just shut up about it. That would be really nice. For god sake's I would really hope that Bruce Lee would be capable of taking a joke. I mean if Bruce Lee wasn't so respected in the first place, the joke WOULDN'T have been funny or made sense. Does anyone actually think less of Bruce Lee over that scene? I think not.
She is one who won't stop talking about. QT is getting asked because of what she keeps saying. She should be thanking as she now gets her 15 minutes of fame because of QT and this movie. Lol she’s the one that started the controversy GOOD JOB, SHANNON!!!!!!!!!! Er.. Didn't she begin the 'controversy' which has led to QT being constantly asked about it? Or is he just not allowed to defend his creativity..?
We are all clear that ONCE UPON A TIME in Hollywood is a fairy tale not a documentary right?
Quentin Tarantino defends his depiction of Bruce Lee in 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood'Quentin Tarantino has come under fire for the depiction of martial arts legend Bruce Lee in 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.' Tarantino defended his portrayal, saying Lee 'was kind of an arrogant guy.' 'I didn't just make a lot of that up,' he adds. Like Tarantino isn’t arrogant?! It was one of the best moments in the movie. ¯\\_(ツ)_/¯and I love Bruce Lee WHO CARES.?
I think Bruce Lee's daughter doesn't know her ups from downs. Or she's about to release a book....Or just needs somebody to love her. Who knows. movie is a snoozefest .. He should stop making movies. Left 30 mins in MatthewACherry She really has to stop denying that her dad really was pretty arrogant. One of the greatest of all time FOR SURE but he HATED stunt men with a passion.
SarahAnnMasse This is a film, right? Good, about time someone told that freak of nature to shut up Seems like Tarantino misunderstood a quote, Put that misunderstanding of said quote in a film, And then doubled down on his misunderstanding and tried to state it as a fact... Shannon is right. Probably the first time anyone has told him that... good for Shannon
Quentin Tarantino is problematic. He worked for Harvey Weinstein and has admitted he knew what was going on. He has appeared in his own films solely to use the N word. He has put women in danger on set in multiple occasions. He appropriated slavery and the Holocaust in his films. Lee has every right to defend her dad, but QT has every right to defend his decisions. You can't bring up a problem you have with a person and then get mad when they try to defend themselves.
The Night Bruce Springsteen Became ‘Rock and Roll Future’These photos of Bruce Springsteen’s legendary 1974 show at Harvard Square Theater — when Jon Landau declared him “rock and roll future” — have never been seen before oi, livbrandao 3 Jon Landau was wrong, evidently. You can also buy Barry’s stunning signed limited edition prints from this show here
Does anybody really give a shit about this? Someone tells someone to shut up and that's a story? Stop already. yomyomf I didn’t know Bruce Lee had a daughter until just now. That’s how much I care about Bruce Lee. Dam, I understand Shannon Lee wants her legendary father Bruce Lee to be represented the right way but this is Quentin Tarantino's movie and he's not making a film about her father, Bruce Lee's character how Quentin sees it is that's all. Lighten up Shannon
....wasnt he just responding to HER criticism? What a bizarre response He was 5'8 and 140 lbs soaking wet... these kids from the 70s really need to grow up lmfao He wasn't invincible a bigger man could most certainly dismantle him! Also he was portrayed no differently in Dragon the Bruce Lee story why not complain about that? Oh right Tarantino...
I think it was a fictitious film based on an “altered reality”. SPOILER ALERT. Sharon Tate and the other victims lived in the movie. But- Bruce was a legend, I think they should have depicted how he truly was through research. The guy who portrayed Bruce was amazing. Imagine making a movie about Charles Manson, Roman Polanski, and the gutting of a pregnant woman & not giving Bruce Lee's entitled daughter a bit part turns out to be the most controversial thing.
Now his fanboys will be all over her Jesus, if you have never taken the time to actually sit and watch a Tarantino movie it’s sole purpose is to entertain the thought of how to exagérate a role it’s never to depict the actual person. Get a clue shannon lee you’re making this movie about your dad not Tarantino..
Tarantino Jabs Back Over Criticism of Bruce Lee Character in 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood'Family and friends of the late martial artist turned film star were not happy about the portrayal. Wow the world will now come to an end As someone who worships Bruce Lee I'd by lying if I said it didn't bother me a little to see Bruce Lee made fun of but it's just a movie, he's fighting a fictional character, and that whole scene is brilliant. Everybody chill. He is full...of shit....
So y'all saying she shouldn't stand up for her dad? Q. T made a mistake, Brad Pitt are fictif but Bruce Lee are not a fictif character. misinterpreted Bruce lee showing arrogance. When B. Lee was Real about passion to demonstrated is art in a time of asian actors had no chance to get in lead roles. He will shut up if people stop pestering him about it.
Tarantino is just a total prick can't believe i used to like his films. But then that was when they were decent. She could lead by example, or Variety could stop wasting everyone's time with this nonsense. Either would be fine Perhaps Linda saw a different side of Bruce than Shannon did. I know we all think our Dads are flawless or heroes, but it’s usually the wife that knows them best, because they’ve known them the longest. He was a perfectionist so arrogance isn’t far off the truth.
She wouldn't have a clue how her dad was, she was FOUR when he died. She's just living off of his legacy and trying to be relevant. It wasn't a biopic of him...I just took it as an over exaggeration of Bruce...and I thought the fight was a draw? 1-1? Yep and we already know Robert Clause went on the record years ago and confirmed Bruce told him directly Muhammad Ali would “kill” him in a fight. Tarantino needs a fact checker.
Tarantino Says Brad Pitt's Character Would Kill Bruce Lee After Family Disapproves of 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood'Tarantino says he knows the martial arts legend was an 'arrogant guy' and insisted Brad Pitt would whoop him (via toofab) TooFab It's not about whether they think it's interesting or not. It's about whether they actually think it's interesting. TooFab Tarantino gets weirder by the day TooFab I had the pleasure of meeting Quentin in soho & he's da man!! So spastic & brilliant...& my Greenwich village friend & her billionaire boyfriend are always so sweet 2 me in Washington square park & give me chump change..I screamed her what happen to the movie TAPE
One wishes Tarantino would just shut up. Period. She said , she said, who cares, movie is made move on. Is arrogant bad when its warranted? That's rude You only need to look at QT’s criticism of PTA for his portrayal of the character Burt Reynolds played in Boogie Nights to see he’s a hypocrite, as one example.
🙄 When reminded by Stern sidekick Robin Quivers that Polanski’s [13 yo] victim was plied with drugs and alcohol, Tarantino said, “No, that was not the case at all. She wanted to have it [sex] and dated the guy … Look, she was down with this.” Sometimes he talks too damn much.... Bruce Lee has depicted and shown in various films as an arrogant, entitled actor. Don't blame Quentin for reflecting that especially if he's heard the times.
She just wants attention. Logic and reason don't matter for her. Tarantino just jealous at Bruce Lee legacy, to talk about such great martial artist is indeed incorrect and shamefull......
Or she could shut up about it. Has she done significant things, or just living off her dads legacy? Is it just me or has this whole thing been blown out of proportion? Man you guys really need something better to write about Yeah. In my opinion he simply discovered that Bruce Lee is more famous than he is. Where to me that's the real puzzle that he'd have to learn this way.
