I thought of that too! Polanski himself is mostly know today because of his sexual abuse scandal. And why is that? Because the media how pounded us with that for years. But apparently, young people are to blame. 🤷🏻‍♂️ That been said, I recommend you see other Polanski films like Rosemary’s Baby and The Ghost Writer. [quote]So, it was the historically significant moment that everyone thinks it is. It's just that--true to what everyone is saying in this thread--you don't think it means much because your are completely out of touch with the past. You're so out of touch that you can't even relate to an event that did cause waves and to this day makes an impact for people who remembered when it happened or lived in its aftermath.[/quote] Lol. That argument is unfounded. I am aware of importance of really important historical events like the ones I mentioned and many others Apparently, I wasn’t the only one unfamiliar with this event. So, the pattern of people not knowing about this is a testament of the lack of attention this event has received, than about them. I am pretty sure a lot of the under 30 crowd that doesn’t know about the Cielo Drive murders know about JFK’s assassination, Lincoln’s assassination, Custer’s Last Stand, John Lennon’s assassination, Pearl Harbor, the Holocaust...etc. But not knowing about this incident means you are out of touch of the past? Your argument has no merit. Just an attempt to overhype an event and attack those that have little reason of knowing about it. If you want to blame someone, blame the media for not talking about it enough. I should clarify. I know about Manson and that he was a mass murderer. But I didn’t follow on the individual murders. It was just not an issue I followed. I’ve seen and read stuff about Mason. But not about this particular incident. Maybe this one has been drowned out because of the other murders. Yes! Jack Nicholson in The Shining! Maybe because it is not the significant historical moment you think it is We are not talking about Custer’s Last Stand or the Kennedy assassination. I’ve seen many documentaries and/or movies about these two events. I also remember reading them about them in school. But how many times has the Cielo Drive assassinations been discussed in history classes or in the media? I sure don’t remember this being discussed. Not even a documentary. One thing that I have noticed from Tarantino films is that he likes to dig into historical moments that are not really talked about and bring them to light. At least now more people know about it. My point is that it doesn’t matter. If it is in, good. If it is not, that works as well. In this case we didn’t need Uncle Ben’s death included. It still worked story wise. Parker was a boy with Spider powers that was discovered by Stark. That’s it. Nope. That didn’t bother me at all. I enjoyed the films a lot. No movie should assume the audience read the original source material. I remember hearing that Mysterio was one of Spiderman’s villains, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the film. The plot twist was well executed, especially with Jake Gyllenhaal’s great performance. View all replies >
