Saw it last night with NO spoilers.  had only seen an early trailer.  

Loved it.  I even loved the parts I hated lol.  Thought it dragged in spots but the payoff was always worth it.  

So glad I didnt see Margot butchered at the end like I was dreading.

Telling you, that’s the real payoff.

Waiting 3 goddamn hours in anticipation of that sweet (pregnant) woman getting slaughtered in horrific fashion and then experiencing the relief and joy of the actual ending.

Brilliant.

It was the reason for the seemingly arduous and inconsequential scene of her in the theatre.  It was to further humanize her and make us as the audience more invested in what we knew (lol, thought) was coming.

Pretty much the entire movie was structured to steer us towards and make us appreciate the ending Tarantino shot.

A lot of lefty critics were complaining about how white the film is, how the only Asian is treated, how its too heteronormative and masculine, and especially about how little Robie is given to do, but I thought that scene in the theater did a good job of humanizing her. Tate had a lot going for her - young, rich, pregnant, stunnigly beautiful, famous - yet you sympathize with her because she was nice to people (the hitchiker she picks up and hugs, how she treated the theater staff with courtesy), and the pleasure she takes in how the audience likes her performance - Margot Robie  looks adorable behind those big glasses. She was playing her part to be a beautiful, sweet-natured young woman you didn't want to see be slaughtered.

For the love of fuck.  Can anything just BE anymore?

It was set in the late 60’s for chrissake.  Long before the feminization of modern society.

Me?  I’m 42.  And while I agree that the 60’s where the genesis for all the swishy bullshit we’re hip deep in now, mainstream society was still about 6 thousand times more macho than it is now.

Exactly. Margot Robbie had barely any lines but somehow they made the Sharon Tate character sweet, innocent, and someone that you really don't want to see get massacred. I was second guessing bringing my wife to the movie when anticipating her character being subject to Tarantino film violence. And I really expected it since the truth of what happened is so horrible.

ah, that explains it, i thought the 55 was perhaps your birthday and as such should have had some experience with the 60's commie pinko fags. It is true that they still had enough test to commit mayhem back then, which other than the odd bike lock, seems to have went the wayside. thank god

Man, Shannon Lee just won't let it go.
I guess that's what happens when you live in a fantasy where you're entire being and all your finances are about mythologizing your dad and pretending he is the character from his famous movie.

That article is on point.

It’s a redemption/hero film.

We FINALLY get to see Leo’s character be a hero.  Pitt’s character is an obvious hero.  Brandi the dog even scores some points.

But really, the true hero is Tarantino for giving us that wonderful alternate ending.

I really hope he does an extended cut on Netflix. I would've watched 4 hours of this movie.

They will admit Ali wins in he ring but they believe Bruce wins a street fight.
