Bruce Lee’s daughter tells Quentin Tarantino to “shut up” about her father’s portrayal in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Shannon Lee, the daughter of Bruce Lee, has told Quentin Tarantino to “shut up” or apologise for her father’s portrayal in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Quentin Tarantino films are often controversial but not many would have guessed the major talk about Once Upon a Time in Hollywood would be its depiction of icon Bruce Lee. In the film, Lee is portrayed as rather arrogant and unlikeable and this has rubbed some people the wrong way, including Lee’s daughter Shannon.

Tarantino has declined to apologise, saying that he felt the portrayal of Lee was accurate. Now, Variety has spoken to Shannon Lee about how Tarantino could fix the issue and she has had some strong words for the legendary director in response:

“He could shut up about it. That would be really nice. Or he could apologize or he could say, ‘I don’t really know what Bruce Lee was like.

Quentin Tarantino Went on a Marvel Studios Binge Pre-‘Endgame’ and Was Pleased by a Shout-Out in the McU

Quentin Tarantino Went on a Marvel Studios Binge Pre-‘Endgame’ and Was Pleased by a Shout-Out in the McU
Quentin Tarantino, a master of pastiche himself, said he enjoyed seeing an homage to his own work in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” which is just one example of Tarantino and Marvel riffing on each other.

BBC Radio 1’s Ali Plumb asked Tarantino in a recent interview what he thought about the shoutout to his 1994 film “Pulp Fiction” in the 2014 Marvel Cinematic Universe installment.

Nick Fury’s gravestone features the opening line of Ezekiel 25:17 — “The path of the righteous man …” The bible verse, in its Tarantino-modified form, is delivered by Jules in “Pulp Fiction” as part of his pre-killing ritual in one of the movie’s most memorable scenes.

Jules and Nick Fury are both played by Samuel L. Jackson.

“Probably the first commentary I ever read was the Stan Lee ‘Soapbox’,” Tarantino said, referring to a column penned by the Marvel editor-in-chief that appeared in each comic

Quentin Tarantino defends his depiction of Bruce Lee in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Quentin Tarantino has defended his portrayal of Bruce Lee in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, after Shannon Lee, Lee’s daughter, criticised the depiction of her father calling it “disheartening” and “uncomfortable” as the martial arts icon “comes across as an arrogant asshole.”

In a recent report from The Wrap, a new video shows the director speaking to reporters in Moscow, where he claims his portrayal of Lee is fair.

“Bruce Lee was kind of an arrogant guy,” Tarantino said. “The way he was talking, I didn’t just make a lot of that up. I heard him say things like that to that effect.”

During the film, Brad Pitt’s stuntman character, Cliff Booth, trades insults with Bruce Lee, played by Mike Moh. However, at one point, Lee states he could beat Muhammad Ali. This exchange ends up in a two-out-of-three rounds fight which concludes in a stalemate.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor Mike Moh weighs in on Bruce Lee controversy

Earlier this month, Bruce Lee’s daughter Shannon Lee spoke of her unhappiness over her father’s portrayal in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, stating that the martial arts icon “comes across as an arrogant asshole” during his scenes in the film, which include a fight scene with Brad Pitt’s character Cliff Booth that ultimately ends up in a stalemate.

It’s previously been revealed that Tarantino originally wanted Cliff to come out on top in the fight, only for several people – including Pitt – to voice their concerns and convince Tarantino to change things up. Nevertheless, these changes weren’t enough to quell the controversy completely, and now actor Mike Moh, who portrays Lee in the movie, has offered his thoughts on the situation during an interview with Birth Movies Death.

Quentin Tarantino Will Reportedly Release an Extended Cut of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood on Netflix

It sounds like Quentin Tarantino has plans to release an extended cut of his latest film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood on Netflix. He recently surprised fans with a four hour cut of The Hateful Eight on Netflix and split it into four separate chapters.

News of this comes from Kyle Buchanan of The New York Times, who posted the following on Twitter:

We don’t know how long this extended cut will be, the theatrical cut of the film is already almost 3-hours long. I imagine he’s at least got an hour of extra footage to edit back into the film. Actor Nicholas Hammond,

10 Best Movies of 2019 (So Far)

David Crow Aug 5, 2019

With the summer movie season winding down, we look back at the top 10 films cinema has had to offer this far into 2019.

The summer movie season of 2019 is over. While the heat continues to swelter, and school by and large remains out, the final weekend of new Hollywood blockbuster extravaganzas has sped off the scene like a getaway car. And given the box office receipts for most of the studio tentpoles this year, we imagine the whole industry is ready to put the summer behind them. Be that as it may, cinema remains strong, hence why we think is the perfect time to look back on the year so far.

While many others like to take stock of the movie calendar at the literal halfway mark that occurs at the end of June, we prefer letting the biggest moviegoing season to wrap up and only start reflecting

‘Luce’ Opens Strong, ‘The Farewell’ Is Here to Stay as Sundance Makes Box-Office Comeback

  • Indiewire
With several name actors, good reviews, and top theaters, Sundance-premiere drama “Luce” led multiple new releases this weekend. Also showing promise are “The Babadook” director Jennifer Kent’s second feature, “The Nightingale,” at two initial theaters, while at one New York location “Jay Myself” scored as yet another strong documentary. And summer breakout “The Farewell” continued its strong expansion, adding over $2.4 million to its already impressive figures.

Opening

Luce (Neon) – Metacritic: 73; Festivals include: Sundance, Tribeca 2019

$132,916 in 5 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $26,583

This kind of narrative indie doesn’t have an easy pass to success these days. With Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, and Tim Roth adding to its appeal, the story of parents who face disturbing news about their adopted Eritean son opened in top New York/Los Angeles theaters. Audiences reportedly showed multiple-demographic appeal, critical for any upcoming expansion that seeks a crossover audience.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood 4 Hour Extended Cut May Come To Netflix

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is just one of the numerous blockbusters released this year that approached the three hour mark, but it sounds like an even longer cut of Tarantino’s latest masterpiece may be headed to Netflix soon.

According to The New York Times entertainment reporter Kyle Buchanan, Tarantino told many actors excised from his epic ode to the 1960s that their parts would be reinstated in an extended edition headed for the streaming service. However, it sounds like this new cut of the movie won’t be one complete feature but rather, a multiple-part miniseries not unlike his recent retooling of The Hateful Eight that hit Netflix earlier this year.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood 4-Hour Cut May Be Heading to Netflix

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood 4-Hour Cut May Be Heading to Netflix
There's a decent chance we're going to see a much longer cut of Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Recently, a rumor popped up, via entertainment reporter Kyle Buchanon, that stated the director was planning on releasing a longer cut for Netflix, much like he did with The Hateful Eight, which would be cut into episodes. Buchanon, taking to Twitter, had this to say.

"I keep hearing Tarantino told the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actors that he'll put their deleted scenes back when he recuts the film into episodes for Netflix, akin to what he recently did with Hateful Eight."

Were it only for that tweet, this would merely exist in the plausible rumor mill. Now, however, we have further evidence from one of the stars of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood that further confirms this rumor. Nicholas Hammond, who plays Sam Wanamaker in

‘Luce’: How Will Smith and Barack Obama Inspired Questions About Black Masculinity in Provocative Film

‘Luce’: How Will Smith and Barack Obama Inspired Questions About Black Masculinity in Provocative Film
In the smart psychological thriller “Luce,” Kelvin Harrison Jr., plays a reluctant poster boy for the new American Dream. The film finds white liberal couple Amy and Peter Edgar (Naomi Watts and Tim Roth), reconsidering their impressions of their adopted black son after they discover he has written a disturbing essay for a history class at school. In the process of exploring the teenager’s mindset, writer-director Julius Onah envisioned the young character’s identity crisis with some very precise reference points.

“There were two models I gave Kelvin for the character while we rehearsed — Barack Obama and Will Smith,” Onah said. “I see them as the epitome of a cool, non-threatening black masculinity. They have power, they’re charismatic and are greatly influential, and, particularly with Obama, are highly intelligent.”

Those names never come up in the movie, but much of the depth in “Luce” comes from everything that’s left unsaid.

Luce Review: One of the Year's Best Movies

Luce, a Naomi Watts and Octavia Spencer-led drama about various types of racial expectations in America, is an absolute must-see.

It is a given that expectations can be a double-edged sword. Yet what can be ambiguous is how those expectations are wielded. When someone is stereotyped to fail the menace is self-evident, but what if they are stereotyped to succeed, and what if those preconceived notions prove as much a filter as an aspiration? Such is the incredibly difficult conversation that Luce broaches in its taut running time. While it errs under two hours, its impact haunts long after the credits roll.

A drama about a tinderbox of good intentions, and the spark that threatens to bring it all down, Luce is the story of its namesake, an all-star high school student who administrators and peers alike compare to Obama, although some without the irony. In actuality,

The Five Best Tim Roth Movies of His Career

Honestly when you look at Tim Roth it’s easy to think that he might not be that kind of guy that can act tough on screen. And it’s true, he looks like the type that would be more of the weasel-faced individual that would be the perfect character that gets kicked around and abused most often. But when he cranks up the dial on his acting he’s actually a scary individual since he’s played a few characters that have allowed him to really cut loose when it comes to being a true psychopath. Roth impresses a lot of people since
