    While researching for the Biography of the Chinatown Kid, I discovered a lot of interesting tidbits on those who worked with Fu Sheng. For instance, we often hear about Run Run Shaw's (2nd) wife, the late Mona Fong; however, not much is mentioned about first wife, Wong Mee-chun (黃美珍). When Run Run went to Singapore to join Runme in the late 20s, he was introduced to a wealthy businessman, Eu Tong Sen, who had an interest in filmmaking among other ventures. One day, he invited the Shaws to his home and when they arrived, Eu Tong Sen greeted them with his young girlfriend by his side. She was dressed all in white and well refined. Her name was Wong Mee-chun and while Runme and Eu Tong Sen discussed business inside, the younger Run Run and Wong Mee-chun sat out in the gardens chatting. Wong Mee-chun also had an interest in film, and over time, the two of them grew closer. When Run Run when to the States to purchase film equipment for their first talkie production, Wong Mee-chun was at the docks upon his return. Runme became concerned about this relationship, as he didn't want to jeopardize their business relationship with Eu Tong Sen. Eventually, Run Run went to the Eu Tong Sen and professed his love for Wong Mee-chun, to which Eu Tong Sen laughed and said he was well aware of their feelings and had no desire to interfere with their happiness. In 1932 (or 1937 depending on the source), Run Run Shaw and Wong Mee-chun married in Singapore in which Eu Tong Sen sent a gift of 500,000 yuan to congratulate them. According to Wikipedia, Eu Tong Sen had 11 spouses and 24 children. He died of a heart attack in 1941. Wong Mee-chun would give Run Run four children before she passed in 1987. She is buried in Glendale, California at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park. Her sarcophagus (see photos) is near the grave of Ted Knight; best known for The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Caddyshack (1980). Rest In Peace Lady Shaw...

    It does not unfortunately. A rare English dub is included, but it has the original score from the HK version.

    Can someone tell me if it has the Cinema Group dub version (with soundtrack by Kevin Bassinson)? Thank you in advance.

    Enjoyed it tremendously up to the last third of the movie. The sudden change in narrative style put me a bit off. Also the Tarantino typical minutes of extreme violence felt unnecessary and pretty stupid, at least to me that is. I won't argue though with the performance of DiCaprio and Pitt which are nothing short of amazing! Margot Robbie was kind of wasted unfortunately. The Bruce Lee skit was very funny and on point. Overall an enjoyable movie with some flaws. I'd still recommend to see it on the big screen! Keep in mind... it's more of an homage to days of cinema past than really anything else.

    Yep, a lot of good stuff were uploaded. Due to licensing agreements they cannot upload any full length movies with any subtitles (English or Chinese). However, with no subtitles on there, that would be an opportunity to make some very good customs as this is a clean "unobstructed" print.

    Here's an interview with Mike Moh, the excellent martial arts trained actor who plays Bruce Lee in the film, and his take on the scene. Please note, this DOES INCLUDE SPOILERS for the film, so if you haven't seen it yet I recommend you hold off on reading it until you've watched the movie. https://birthmoviesdeath.com/2019/07/29/mike-moh-once-upon-a-time-in-hollywoods-bruce-lee-breaks-down-his-fight-wit

    I gave it a full 5 star rating on letterbxd. Probably will drop the score on a rematch cause it was too damn long and the scenes were all over the place. Sally menke we miss you.

    I would love to see the extended cut! Hoping for the deleted scene with Tim Roth. Oh that's pretty sweet! I saw that interview before a screening of Fist of Fury at the New Bev a couple years ago. That's a wonderful bonus!

    Speaking of Bruce, if you were lucky enough to have seen the film at the Vista Theater in Los Angeles, you were in for an unexpected treat. The Vista began with a short of the classic Bruce Lee interview from 1965. Not knowing otherwise, I thought it was a prologue of the actual film! Here is a YouTube link to the interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2BKNDc48N4

    Just saw it cant wait to see it again. If your intested in the subject matter, actors, and think it looks good then youll like it. Its sort of exactly what youd expect it to be. And I was all about those three things going into this movie. As much as I love Bruce Lee, I felt the scene was almost deserved in a way. I felt that Tarintinos commentary and pov on the times/subjects came through in the film. For better and for worse. Making for the typically wide appealing movie Tarintino is known for. Wish I could give a better review for the moment. I cant wait to watch this again, for the reasons I listed. Felt the actors, subject matter, and time period were all perfect for Tarintino to capture.

    Just saw this a couple nights ago at the New Beverly with a packed crowd, and I loved it! I thought both Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt gave career-best performances. It was really refreshing seeing this movie since it's very original and unpredictable. There were a number of moments where I was caught completely off-guard in very satisfying ways. This movie was very funny, exciting, smart, and entertaining. And the audience I saw it with went totally nuts, up to a point where it was almost overwhelming. The more I think about this movie, the more I appreciate it. I gave it an 8 out of 10 after seeing it, but I feel it could move up to a 9. I'm gonna have to see it again (which I have no problems with). And I'm gonna comment a little on the Bruce Lee controversy and the ending, both of which involve spoilers, so only read the following if you've seen the movie:

    How cool is this art I found I found online. Showed to a fellow music enthusiast and he pointed out how theyre all deceased, something which hadnt really crossed my mind beyond the cool concept that it is.
