    Here is a real interview about Bruce, from a real fighter who knew him. Not like these guys who no nothing and speak down the stars about Bruce.

      In the scene, the actor style and speed were even not close to the real Bruce. So the scene was so sucked...

          I like di caprio and pitt but if this movie disrepected bruce lee I will have to disrespect this movie. Bruce Lee have the respect of kareem abdul jabar in his prime in showtime lakers days and abdul jabar is kind of an asshole so gaining his respect means he really did deserve respect. Tarantino is just a odd movie maker I like someof his movies but he is not a philosopher, an innovator, a master of his craft like bruce lee.

              Remember it’s all in Cliff Booth’s mind, while he’s fixing the antenna on the roof

                      I just saw the movie. Bruce Lee is made to look like a joke. Don't expect this movie to do well in the huge Asian market.

                        I just thought it was the character interpreting what he felt happened in his head. Like a rosy colored version of it.

                          Last 5 minutes of movie is the best,rest is ho-hum. Pitt was so cool the last 5 minutes he smashes all them fuckers.

                            "IF" Gene LeBell got a hold of Bruce Lee he wins nearly every time.
                            If he doesn't... he loses nearly every time.
                            Also, the Lee character in the film has feet of clay, and fights poorly.

                              Tarantino make a fool of him self with his own " white minded" opinion of Bruce Lee, obviously he didn't his homework and has not clue who Bruce Lee was....
                              This are some well known facts about Bruce Lee. Before coming to America, during his teens years Bruce Lee was getting into street fights, and he's been practicing wing Chun with ip man since he was 14 years old...
                              By the summer of 1969 Bruce Lee would be 28 years old, he's on top psychical and mental condition due to he's been working out and specific regimen to make him be more explosive, stronger and faster, also he's been reading and writing since his arrival to usa since he was 18 years old, also by this years Bruce Lee is known and respected by many accomplished known celebrities and martial arts champions, like : Steve McQueen, James coburn, Karen Abdul, joe Lewis, chuck Norris, bill walance, Ed Parker, Gene LaBelle, and all them thinking and talked great things about Bruce Lee... Also by this year is beginning to developing his own fighting method JET KUNE DO, which is base on real and practical fighting, Bruce was way ahead of time for many martial artists at the era...but also by this years he was struggling with racial discrimination by Hollywood.
                              fictional facts about " Cliff Booth" .
                              According to Tarantino , Booth was a " real warrior" because he was war veteran with " real combat experience" but from which war ? Let's say that Booth was a veteran from Korea war ( 1950 1953) and the Vietnam war ( 1955 1971)
                              By 1969 Booth would be on his early or middle 40s, which is no a good age to fighting vs a 28 years old highly trained athletic man...
                              And what was Booth martial arts knowledge? Probably the basic hand to hand combat from the army at that time, which was really unrealistic...
                              Now let's break down a real fight between a very young and athletic Bruce Lee and and 40 something years old white male with some " experience on combat" ...
                              The fight wouldn't be last no more than a minute, because Bruce Lee would started feinted to the upper body of Booth, and kicking him below the waist, probably the knees, and ended up with a powerful right Puch to Booth jaw o ribbs, or ended him up with a neck choke.. and the winner would be Bruce Lee without any doubt.
                              Now here is another real fact about Bruce Lee is been influencing millions of people around the world for almost five decades, and 100 years will pass and he probably still will be influencing future generations...
                              Now who the hell will remember Quentin Tarantino after he's going? Nobody!

                                  Rogan's account is spotty and his conclusions half-baked (fittingly). Sure, grappling was Lee's weak spot at the time, but Rogan is putting it all on that and weight without regard to Lee's ridiculous lightning bruiser strikes (which is why people quote Gene saying he wouldn't put Lee down "or he'll kill me"). More importantly, what has Gene said about Bruce? "During that time, I was able to get to know Bruce a little bit, and we even worked out together. He was the best martial artist of his time." -

                                                  Who better to ask on the legitimacy of Bruce Lee than Chuck Norris. They worked together and Chuck is still alive to give his firsthand opinion

                                                    Norris is deep down jealous of Lee but would never admit it due to his ego

                                                      Tarantino makes movie plots solely based on events that “could/could have happened” in reality versus movies about actual realty. Bruce Lee is just attached to Joe’s heart strings lol

                                                        Gene LeBell was no joke. He definitely pinned Bruce and locked him up.

                                                            It should be noted that the scene where Brad Pitt fought Bruce Lee was a day dream. It wasn't real. It was Pitt's character imagining it.

Pretty much mma before mma.

Next I have Loved Bruce from the 1st time seeing him guest star with Green Hornet on the Batman series. Joe, surprised you didn't mention that when Bruce started teaching Martial Arts, typically Nobody would teach to anyone that wasn't of the same Nationality. There is video of Bruce saying in a interview that you're Always learning and there is No Ultimate form of Martial Art. Also can't believe you didn't mention IP Man who trained Bruce and was documented as a Ledgend in China. I also hope and agree that you should bring on some of Bruce's students or witnesses that are still around.

He gave me practical advice as well as a patch in the first letter. That said the thing I got from him is his respect for the black fighters of old specifically Jack Johnson and from his youth Joe Louis and Sugar Ray. His mother was president of the Olympic auditorium he grew up there and would visit the fighters of old like Johnson when they would visit Los Angeles. He knew Joe Louis personally. Also didn’t he talk about sparring with Sugar Ray as a teenager?

He was a Green Beret who fought in World War ll and the fight in the movie isn't nearly ass one sided as people make it out to be. Both got the other one with one good clean shot and the third round was relatively even before it was interrupted. So let's all chill and just enjoy the movie we all know was a fictionalised version of events anyway.
