One word: FLAMETHROWER!!!  Pirate Pirate Pirate Pirate
Ha, yes, forgot. Di Caprio's character did it to end the crazy girl's screaming, she wouldn't die after dog biting her everywhere literally & being punched by Brad's character. So when Rick sat in pool rehearsing his lines via tape recorder & headphones, she ran away from house into pool & STILL kept screaming. Her jumping into water shook Di Caprio & he got scared like chicken & went into house with super powerful stick generating fire that he used during some scene in his previous TV work as Rick Dalton, in the beginning of "Once Upon...". He opened fire at that super-tough-to-kill girl & she burned like paper but, I think at 1st she still screamed or did it at last shut her up? Anyway, such OTT scene. Can't imagine everybody in it playing with straight face, bet the cast laughed 1st few takes.
The other scene I just remembered liking is when Rick/ Di Caprio got meltdown when he messed his lines, couldn't say it start to finish. He started shouting indecipherable things in his trailer, some things I could hear is him berating himself, yelling what loser he can be to forget lines when he went over & over those lines in his house, he rehearsed them repeatedly, yet still managed to forget. It was very OTT scene but worked, just like that OTT scene with the screaming girl, as per quoted above.

Hadnít seen the movie yet... was NOT expecting to see it spoiled !

Iím going to see if there is any way we can add a spoiler tag for the board so the posts can be hidden until clicked.! I know other boards have that feature . Iím not the best when it comes to coding but Iíll figure out a way

I think best solution to not being spoiled is not read the reviews. It's up to everybody to write reviews as they see fit. I like writing long detailed reviews. Besides, one thing to read them & the other thing to see with your eyes what happens in screen. That's what I think. 2 cents FWIW.

[Spoiler] test [/Spoiler]

Dammit that didnít work. I know thereís a way because Iíve seen it used for other forums although as the infrastructure on this board is almost twenty years old there may not be a way .  Iíll figure it out.

Mainly would like this So endings can be discussed for people who have seen movies can discuss endings , or if a new release is out and people who rather hear it fresh can do it. Someone had asked me about it before some years back and Iíd forgotten

You can catch up with reviews later anyway. They will not run away, haha. It would save trouble & time instead of adding unnecessary "spoiler tags".

No...that was not my intent at all. It was more frustration because I tapped the wrong thread on my phone. No harm no foul, at least on my end. Wasnít even trying to read this thread in the first place! 

I donít think Spoiler tags are unnecessary though... I think itís a feature that shouldíve been a part of the board anyway because itís a standard feature of many forums, and would help those of us who want to discuss movies or tv shows in the normal forum can discuss them without spoiling them, esp people who HAVE seen then & want to discuss them.  I *do* agree with you about not reading them. Iím just amazed that a standard feature of many other forums isnít available here. Itís why I actually donít read these types of threads until Iíve seen whatever it is in question

Thanks. Then I'll continue posting here as I see fit. I enjoy discussing & writing about films seen, it's sth. I like to do.

'kay. Next scene I really liked is when Rick (Di Caprio) & Cliff (Pitt) been enjoying film & discussing it in, I think, Cliff's mini-house. Just chilled watching TV & laughed at few scenes & pointed to some guy driving truck (?), saying he's great et al. Before it, they looked like colleagues but in this scene, I believe, is when they bonded like best buds.

Yes, usually when someone writes a review giving details instead of generalities (as in, "The ending will be a surprise" ), the reviewer will indicate with **Spoiler Alert** or some such. I was slightly miffed at first to see the spoiler and stopped reading that post. But it's okay. It sounds so far fetched that I'm curious how it comes about.

By "that post" you mean review I'd written?

I repeat this point 5th time or 10th time but when people don't want to be spoiled, they don't read early reviews - TILL they see it themselves. What's so difficult to understand it? It ain't rocket science. That way nobody will have to write, with asterisks to boot, "Spoiler Alert".

I'll continue posting in this thread. Lemme do that, please. Thank you. & Billy said by now it's been misunderstanding. Then it should be done deal.

Reviews of movies in theaters don't give away the ending of the movie. Go to Rotten Tomatoes - find a single review that says what happens at the end of the movie. You won't be able to find one.

So what? I don't care. So, I said Sharon Tate in this film doesn't die. What's the big deal? If need be, I'll say it again. Hate to be spoiled? Don't read new film review threads. It's 100% easy, safe thing to do.

1. This isn't a film review thread
2. You didn't write a review because reviews don't give away the endings of movies

Wha'? What I see here is film reviews. Check previous pages.
I'd written film review. Minus giving away the ending, it's review alright - i.e. things I liked about it, didn't like, observations etc.

Next thing I liked is Cliff's (Brad Pitt) dialog via 2 sides of the door with Squeaky (Dakota Fanning). I figured she didn't open it due to lie, that the guy Cliff asks isn't there at all & they live in that house without permission. Just took it. But then Cliff gets to the guy's room & he indeed sleeps, like Squeaky said. Not sure then why she couldn't allow Cliff to get in.  To not show what state the house is in (dirty sink in kitchen,dishes not washed)? But still fascinating scene.

I think her reluctance to let anyone in the house was more for tension (for the audience watching) more than anything.  In the end it turned out to be true.  The guy was sleeping and she didn't want him to fall asleep later when they were watching TV together.

Interesting theory but we'll respectfully agree to disagree. I didn't look at it like that. Basically, I agree with me about everything, *including* spoilers. I think spoilers are fun! It's fringe view but so what? I stand by it. Hate it if you wish, I don't give 2 flying figs. I literally couldn't care less about being soo serious about this spoiler thingy. ***major eyeroll*** I am individual, 1stly, I'll NEVER write "spoiler alert" as everybody. You just gotta deal with it, 'K?. I mean, why must I? It's free speech, I'll write reviews like I'm used to - detailed, describing scenes thru & thru etc.
It's not end of the world, for pete's sake. Quit twitching & fretting about it. You'd think people will appreciate my reviews, don't people like long reviews anyway? It's better than pointless useless one-liners (bgas, anybody? Ha).
I've very strong views about everything film/music-related. You gotta just accept it, hey.
This is film review thread. I posted film review. Makes sense? Exactly. Thus, I made VALUABLE THREAD CONTRIBUTION. 3D
Don't thank me for this brilliant speech. police

Hey folks, here's entire initial film review when I got back from San Francisco, it's been really nice vacation there. 3D

I went to movies in San Francisco, which I got back recently, to see this film. I give it 8/10. To begin with preface, I'm the type who doesn't care the slightest about these events, Sharon Tate means zero to this film viewer. It's sad she got what she got, little baby she bore but, I'm not attached/ angry about these 1969 events as many (say, youtubers with saying "possessed" things like "Hope he rots in hell". Funnily, nobody ever mentions the girls, so-called "Family" who ACTUALLY did these brutal murders. Instead, people discuss who's "the prettiest Manson girl").

Now the review. I didn't read anybody's, you'll excuse me if there's points being repeated written by other posters. 1st, I paid attn to music in car when they drive & thru the film. It matches, I think, lyrically to scenes depicted. But I don't give fig about lyrics, it's great song picks. Quentin, again, doesn't disappoint in music choice.

Actors - Brad Pitt is brilliant in each scene. Pitch-perfect casting choice. Everybody in supportings fits too. The guy playing Polanski did well in mannerisms dept: gimmicky & jittery. The little girl. Al Pacino. Luke Perry speaking with Leonardo in film-within-film excelled, natural. Kurt Russell. Dakota Fanning.

Big exception will be Leonardo Di Caprio who is, without doubt, miscast. He dressed like cowboy? Looked like idiot. Didn't make sense to see it. Boo! Besides, he tends to play his characters as if he plays them, doesn't live. He should better relegate to legitimate stage. Broadway etc.

Margot Robbie, when she went to cinema to see her latest film - they showed real Sharon doing comedy fight with the other girl (Asian of course) - looked much like Sharon, thanks to make-up people. & when she danced at party etc., it's easy to imagine Sharon being like that. Little caveat: Sharon is prettier than Margot.
Otherwise, the actress fit in well. Btw, didn't see her in previous films, "Once Upon..." is debut film I'd seen featuring her.

Quentin's film again shines at dialogs, there's many funny scenes, each Manson Fam scene got funny lines.  I frankly began to suspect that Quentin humiliates these people when Brad super-easily started beating their precious fam member, some guy who flatted his tire. The girls all gather, stand like true losers, total tools shouting at Brad, some girl even asked to call Tex, the guy riding horse smwr in backyard. But nobody even does anything to defeat Brad,they just shout in their togetherness, super-loyally. That's...it. Brad is like "Heh, shout all you like. I don't give flying fig, you stupid witches". Brad looked reaaally cool in each fight scene.

Such as with Bruce Lee. Again, you could easily picture real Bruce Lee to be about ego, smug, self-absorbed. In films he may look noble & into classy fights with classy-looking tricks, very serious to teach fight as art. But, posters where he stands with classic stand, black trousers & shirtless, you can see that he got quite star diseased. Thus, the actor who played him in fact paid nice credible tribute to him. Bruce's fam should be proud that he gets the nod in this day & age & who knows this film may get people to revisit or seek his films 1st time.
Brad again shows who's the boss in this fight, that he may be forgotten, old but still can kick like pro.

Final scenes = sheer coolness paired with hilarity. Generally like action in QT's films. Quentin spits at past & changes scenario by poking fun at Manson's gang, he lets loose.

Here, Sharon Tate doesn't die, folks. Instead, the would-be murderers end up victims. & during it, Leonardo just sat in pool rehearsing with headphones his lines to the next TV flick. & what does Sharon do? She meets these her neighbors that nearly got killed. Ha! Clever script with humor & cool bits.

L.A. is captured beautifully. Ritzy yet dishevelled city. Colorful film. Re: BBs connection - Charlie gets to the Tate house seeking desperately Dennis & Terry Melcher (I think, seen it 2 weeks back). Then gives rather interested look at Sharon when she stood at the door listening to the guys talking. Her friend said Terry (&/ or Dennis) don't live here, it's Tate house. Didn't rmbr if Charlie looked seriously mean when he got such answer. Not bad if too short acting but isn't convincing & frankly, that guy playing Manson doesn't look like leader who'd generate interest amongst youth, bring people around him. Maybe again, Quentin tried to paint these criminals in laughable way, that they look like buncha losers. I didn't see his interviews to back it - it's this viewer's theory.
