You need to have some working knowledge of the Manson Family murders to appreciate and understand this movie

How does that mean the story sucked? The story wasnt about his career as a whole it was about him having to come to terms with the end of it. 

That's terrible storytelling 101.

Exactly how is it a terrible story especially when Leo was playing a fictional character.

Saw this again yesterday. Still floored by how good it is. Its legitimately one of my favorite movies ever, and its up there with Whiplash for best of the decade.

I'm in complete shock of how well the reviews are and how many people liked it. I honestly thought it was one of the most boring movies I have ever seen. I legit liked 2-3 parts and the rest was such a waste of time.

I'm not a movie critic by any means and I watch movies with the intent to enjoy it, but I just couldn't get on board with it at all.

Yeah, I agree with you but there was some things that I liked, so I have mixed feelings about it

Something I find funny, Bruce Lee's family is mad at QT for his depiction of Bruce in the movie. I find it hilarious because the only time we saw Bruce was while Pitt was on the roof imagining what would happen if he would have been allowed to stay on set. 

They are mad he lost the fight lol 

Not only was it a movie, but it was an intentionally fake scene in a movie

We also saw Bruce training Sharon for her fight sequence in the Dean Martin movie.

 

One of the reasons Bruce's family is mad is bcuz QT kinda made Bruce look super arrogant the way he was running his mouth on set.   According to QT here, he really was like that in real life.  QT claims Bruce and his wife ran their mouths about Cassius Clay.  Beyond that, it was just an exaggerated sequence designed to showcase just how badass Cliff is and set up what he's capable of per the home invasion.  He's former Green Beret.
