    One of the best movies of all time! Awesome acting and direction; nothing held back. Droll, decadent and dark with lots going on in multiple levels- a movie for people who really like movies.

    What a waste of time. 1:55 hour build up for a 5 minute pay off.

    Lots of twists and goofiness. Loads of fun.

    Half of the words spoken in the movie start with the letter F. It is by far the worst movie I have ever seen. It deserves negative stars.

    I love QT's art, and accept whatever he delivers. So for me, this movie rocked. BUT... the reason so many folks don't like it is simple. It lacks what we expect to see in a movie - the three act structure. This movie is one very long first act - setting up characters/world (for over 2 hours... sigh), followed by a resolution. There is no second act (confrontation - where a character has a call to action and is on a mission to solve/change something). So without a buildup to the third act, the resolution is meaningless because we haven't invested in the character's journey. Brad and Leo are at their best, so IMHO it's still worth the ride.

    This movie was not Quentin Tarantino finest work! You go to a Tarantino movie to experience very clever dialog from the actors and memorable scenes. For example the opening scene from Inglorious Bastards in the house where people are hiding under the house or Pulp Fiction where the characters are talking about the Royal with Cheese or Reservoir Dogs where the crew is talking about tipping a server. This movie lacks that banter with its characters. Yes, its about the film industry in the last 60's and the struggle to remain in the industry as an actor, but nothing was interesting or done in an interesting manor. The pacing of this film was very slow, and at times so slow that I thought about if I could cut my our hair. If your planning to see this film save your money and time and watch Murdoch Mysteries instead, if people actual even watch that, at less it free.
