Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio's movie 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' disrespects the legacy of Bruce Lee.
Yeah, that's why I am not watching that movie. And it's Tarantino's film and he is a douchbag.share
No, the notion the Bruce Lee can come across as arrogant isn't exactly new.share
The whole movie was a fantasy much like how Tarantino did with Inglorious Bastards.
No way would Bruce lose to a stuntman.
how do you figure that? I think Lee was very fit and i don't doubt he could defend himself but what is it with Bruce Lee and his fans thinking he's this magical unbeatable god? No one is unbeatable, the best fighters in the world have lost fights, Bruce Lee is no exception, you never what could happen in a fight.share
You really think some stuntman no one a has heard of could beat Bruce Lee? You don't know much about fightingshare
no obviously you don't know much about fighting. bums have beaten elite(not that i would call bruce lee elite) fighters even in pro sport fighting and being there is no prrof to claim that bruce lee is elite, it's not out of the realm to think he could be beaten, he can, no one is unbeatable, and if you knew anything about fighting you'd know what i'm talking about. congrats on making yourself look really stupid right now.share
No Proof Bruce Lee is elite LOL you're an idiotshare
the only idiot here is you...show me one clip of bruce lee beating an ELITE fighter or show me proof of him defeating the best fighters in the world of his time
not something someone said, not a quote, not a sparring match, not a demonstration, not a movie clip, an actual fight of him against another certified elite fighter and defeating them, i'll wait
the fact that youre too stupid to understand that bruce lee was an actor and a hobbyist martial artist and not an actual fighter tells me all i need to know about you
Are you fucking nuts? There's plenty of videos of Bruce out there
LOL hobby martial artist? You're too stupid for words. He grew up practicing Wing Chun then created his own style. He's also credited as being the originator of modern MMA
You're legit retarded
show me one
and no he didn't create his own style or mma mma was around before him, i.e. the vale tudo
youre constantly making yourself look really stupid and i'm still waiting for a video you keep deflecting and saying more idiotic things. I'm sure everyone reading this is laughing at you.
Show yourself dickhead
Yes he did create his own style, Jeet Kune Do ever heard of that?
Bruce Lee, father of MMA
“The Gracies were the founding fathers of the actual UFC, but I think the sport of Mixed Martial Arts was started by Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee’s movies, Bruce Lee’s philosophies, just Bruce Lee’s image alone is very powerful.” - Dana White, President of UFC
Yes please keep showing us how dumb you are IDIOT
Anything CAN happen in a fight, but let's compare the two:
Fighter A: Trained since a kid in various martial arts, became a boxing champion at age 15, went on to practice other martial arts and push his body to peak physical condition EVERY SINGLE DAY. Trained and sparred with the most elite martial arts champions of the day who were world champions at the time (i.e., Chuck Norris and Joe Lewis), as well as former world champions (i.e., "Judo" Gene Lebell) and was even called by the best wrestler from that era the "best martial artist in the world" at the time (viz., https://blackbeltmag.com/judo-gene-lebell-bruce-lee-was-the-best-martial-artist-of-his-time). Went on to create his very own martial arts based on mixing martial arts and utilizing the best techniques from different styles.
Fighter B: Middle-aged stunt man who was trained in the military (i.e., judo/karate). Smokes daily. Doesn't fight daily. Doesn't train daily. Is in decent shape. Has size/weight advantage over Fighter A.
Now we already know from the early days of the UFC when weight classes didn't exist that size didn't matter if the smaller guy had more skill (i.e., watch the Royce Gracie versus Dan Severn fight, where the latter was twice the former's size).
And so when you have someone who grew up as a street fighter, has amateur boxing skills under his belt, and trains EVERY single day and is in peak physical condition, I'm going to bet that the guy who has lightning quick reflexes and an extremely powerful thrust kick and punch, as well as studied kinematics and physiology to maximize his striking power for his size, is the one who will have the advantage in the fight.
Also, mindset plays a big part in how someone approaches a fight, too, and Bruce Lee's mindset never changed about how he approached fighting technique (as demonstrated on the show Longstreet, wherein his appearance was basically just him extrapolating his teaching from his classes to the television audience):
Fighter behavior/mindset aside, the variable logistics automatically puts the fight in the favor of Fighter A. It's just basic science at that point, especially since Cliff was a smoker, and any fight over two minutes would have saw him gasping for air.
Plus, Lee's main concept of fighting was counter-striking, so I have no idea how a middle-aged, washed up stunt-man goes to attack and doesn't get hit ten times to one after throwing a sloppy punch.
Doesn't really matter to me one way or another. That said, I still don't think it's a very good film.share
The title has “Once Upon a Time” in it. It’s a work of fiction.share
Bruce was awesome. By the way Tarantino also homaged him in Kill Billshare
First I have to say I hated Quentin's ridiculous movie. I guess that puts me in the minority, at least of those who admit to hating it. So many things I hated about it, not least of which are the actors Leo & Brad--yuch! Anyway, definitely it disrespects Bruce Lee by making him (like all the other characters in the film) into a cartoon, not a real person. And of course I hated that he falsified history by using real people in fake situations. FU Quentin!share
