    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.

    In Quentin Tarantino fashion, he never disappoints, excellent acting by all, story line and best ending ever. I have to see again.

    Bad movie. Disjointed with no flow or meaning. Donít waste your money on this one. I like both Pitt and Decaprio but they didnít do themselves any justice in this movie. They should be more selective with a script.

    Pitt and DeCaprio lowered themselves. The movie is good acting but the plot is awful, historical fantasy, makes light of very sad events, the violence attacks your senses needlessly, & promotes mental illness, and glorifies the sick behaviour we constantly see on the news. Want more for an afternoon at the movies?

    I thought the acting was superb. Loved the dog too. Good job with the logistics. Sadly, not enough plot and WAY TOO LONG!!!!
