    I popped by Hollywood Blvd when they were shooting the driving scenes and it was a pretty magnificent piece of art direction. I was with Alison Martino who wrote this piece on that night's shoot with some good BTS: https://la.curbed.com/2018/7/25/1761...e-in-hollywood.

    Note the Vogue theatre marquee appearing in the trailer at :44, :48 and 1:06--they made good use of that piece of the boulevard!

    Yeah I watched almost all BTS videos i could find on it last year on YouTube.. truly looks like QT will outdo himself once again. Some are saying he might even top Pulp Fiction.. in my eyes he hasnt yet but thats just me.

    If this trailer didn't have big name actors in it (often indicating signing to a great script), or the name QT, I'd watch the trailer and just be like... "huh?". And not think another thing of it. Just from the trailer, I have no idea even remotely what the movie is really about.

    Not a criticism at all on the trailer, I just thought it was interesting how advertising changes depending on context. QT and gang there has reached a point where they can release a trailer that basically tells you nothing other than that their next project is coming, and we're all salivating.

    Point in case: because I know who's behind it, I watched the trailer and I can't wait. I'll be there opening weekend.

    They really manage to bury the lede on the meat of the story, which is the Manson murders. Barely hinted at it in this trailer, it's pretty much just atmospheric.

    The other interesting piece of info is that Leo and Brad's characters are based on Burt Reynolds and Hal Needham.

    From what I understand, the Manson murders are just kind of atmospheric in the movie itself, happening on the periphery of the movie, not the meat of the story itself. Manson interacted with a lot of Hollywood characters so I think the movie is more about those interactions. An interesting fact, Steve McQueen was supposed to be at the party the night of the murders, and was a target of Manson. I wonder how things would have gone down, had he been there.

    I wouldn’t have worded it this way, but a big ole +1

    Saw it last night, at the fabled Cinerama Dome (which appears in the film) and Tarantino was sitting two rows behind me. I wasn't fully blown away, but people had different reactions in our group so it will be interesting to see how it is received. It's certainly fun, and the recreation of 1969 Los Angeles is meticulous. Don't want to say too much about it.

    I wonder if it'll be in keeping with the new pattern for dvxuser, where the thread about the trailer is bigger than the thread about the film itself. I must say, I have respect for Tarantino. I enjoy some of his filmography - Reservoir Dogs is a masterpiece - but I think he has some excellent insights into the industry. His stance of bowing out from directing at a certain age (he mentions 60) is at least based on something real; as he puts it, he doesn't want to tarnish his legacy and make poor movies, and thinks past 60 most directors are spent as a creative force in directing films (he plans on continuing to write for the theater). I don't know if there are such sharp cutoff lines like "age 60", but undoubtedly, the vast majority (though not all) of directors who just fizzle out.

    In this regard, Brian de Palma is an interesting case. In a documentary made about him, he's interviewed and he makes the remark to the effect that past 60 a director is just not much good anymore at directing films. It's interesting that he picked the same number that Tarantino did. But this is where I respect Tarantino: he has integrity, and if he follows through, it'll just be proof. By contrast... I wish de Palma took his own words to heart. I just watched "Domino" last night. Unbelievably bad - de Palma's excuse is that the film was taken away from him, but I don't care how they re-cut this trash, it was trash in every frame and there was no cut that would have made this film anything other than garbage. If this is what de Palma amounts to as a director in his late 70's, he's way, way past his selling date. His brain seems to have been liquified. There is nothing of solid substance left.

    I'm curious about the new Tarantino flick. I like the time period and whatever I can gather about the idea. I hope he delivers, because in my book most of his stuff has been, for a long time now, varying shades of disappointing. Jackie Brown was his last truly excellent work (in my opinion only, of course), and the rest "good" have been segments of films, or sometimes only scenes here and there. Still, I think Tarantino was a breath of fresh air, I'll be sad to see him go, but I understand where he's coming from. Here's to wishing for Once Upon A Time in Hollywood to be a huge artistic success!

    How many farewell tours have the Stones had ?

    I suspect that the very talented Mr. Tarantino will be tempted to make a few more films before he calls it a day.

    Ridley Scott is still chugging along at 81, and even a bad Ridley Scott film is more entertaining than other people's best work.
    ( I know a lot of people hated Prometheus, but I thought that many of the visuals were breathtaking )
