    A tad slow?

    Finally saw it; almost 3 hours long. I nodded off twice.

    I was really looking forward to seeing that ugly Corvair a fourth time but was disappointed. However the ending was classic Tarantino: Random Insanity.

    Sounded like a lot of obligatory courtesy laughing going on in the theatre just because it was a QT film. 3 stars.

    Mike,
    Make sure you buy discounted tickets.


    I’m sure some of the scenes evoked an immeasurable sense of nostalgia for those who lived in LA in the 70’s... like taking a trip through a full-scale wax city.

    Again, I know “awkward and sluggish” is his brand but give me a break... 160 minutes?
    And there’s no end to beating Hollywood up on “reality” but Kato would have to be shot out of a cannon at close range to mangle the Continental that way. Lol. AND that would have been one dead hornet.

    All good.

    I’m just sorry I didn’t wait til it was on Netflix.

    This is a perfect example of Porsche "getting the details right". This is from a recent online advert from Porsche. Sloppy.

    I love QT....and Brad and Leo...but man that was a hard watch for 65% of the film......Id not see it again....

    and the era/yr on the 911 is a biggie, considering the movie specifically wanted us to know the yr and month thru out the film
