      Im disappointed... Why ?
      When Bruce died film industry use his image and persona to make money producing a bunch of silly movies. And Tarantino one of the most pasionated fan of martial arts movies does the same... and the worst its how he portrait him, as a disrespectful cocky dumd hollywood star.

        You know that the scene was a day dream Brad Pitt's character was having? Set in a alternate timeline? So why would anyone think this is historically accurate? I'm very confused by all this?

                How is a director depicting Bruce Lee as a jerk in a film any different from a comedian writing a bit depicting someone (Like calling cris cyborg a man) in their act for the sake of getting laughs from the audience? Film and stand-up are both forms of artistic expression at the end of the day and Joe of all people should know better taking that shit seriously, though he is probably just really high.

                    Joe Rogan is just another little man with a big mouth and a big chip, like Bruce Lee.

                      I think Bruce Lee wouldve won anyways by using his surroundings, using his agility, hell. Mike Tyson said himself, size doesnt mean anything in a fight. And I believe Gene did teach him a lot, but that's because Bruce learned as much as he could from as many different places, people, and things as possible. But yeah, Rogans been on this like size dominates the fight thing, he said it in the Silver Back Gorilla vs Grizzly Bear conversation and in this one. I mean, I know that when it comes to Rogan theres no one on Earth that has more experience and also no one on Earth as good at spectating fights as Rogan. Bar none. But I think a Gorilla would fuck a ravenous Grizzly up, just with the advantages of thumbs and thinking, and being more territorial the bears, Alpha Gorillas aren't just in charge of their kids, but entire Primes. That, and standing up tall would scare the bear instantly. The Gorilla would get pretty banged up unless it like wrapped around that fucker, got on its back, just beating the macoroni and shit out of it. Same w Bruce Lee, he's smaller, sure, dudes waaaay bigger, but size wouldn't count the match out, especially for someone as aware and as skilled as Bruce. I am biased though I think because I honestly believe that there's no on Earth to this day that could've beaten Bruce. Fighting him at his age and mind set just before his death, he would've taken out both Diaz Bros. McGregor Khabib wouldn't be undefeated Mayweather wouldve retired one time and stayed retired and that's all at the same time btw. He didn't train for boxing, he didn't train for MMA, he didn't train for movies or stunts he didn't train with rules and stipulations, he mastered the art of dying, he trained to know himself to be himself and he was him self. He's literally the Goku of real life. Js.

                        "A stunt man could never beat Bruce Lee up!"

                        "But the stuntman was Gene Lebell..."

                        "... Fair enough"

                          To be fair, Tarantino is a creep. But he creates good movies so people just give him a pass for being so artistic. The man has a few screws loose, you can see it in his interviews. He is living in his own world. But whatever, as long as he's not hurting anyone and creating quality stuff 🤷🏻‍♂️

                              He didn't just change things for the sake of entertainment alone. The movie is called once upon a time in Hollywood not once upon a time in real life. That's why we get the typical Hollywood ending. Also there are many things in the film that mirror real people and things that were happening in Hollywood at that time.

                                Haha it was me who defeated Bruce Lee so stop moaning about it. It was fair and square cause he tried stealing my wife. That clip in tarintinos film was most likely based on me and what I done. Life has to tell the truth. It didn't know how else to do it. He reached the game of death and couldn't pass go so him and brandon went with eachother to the way of the dragon, to be one with the dragon satan on the cross of the crow. He overcome the whole world but couldn't overcome himself and death was called to put him out of his misery. Don't touch my wife again.

                                  I get this get's for a lot of discussions on whether how BL would fight in real life and the difference from the movies and so forth. But this link i share hear could clear things up a bit. This i believe is from a long beach demonstration in the 60's that they remastered and put in good quality so you can clearly see the movements and i think it's a very good example on the intercepting principle that Bruce was focussing on in JKD.

                                  You can clearly see it is in NO WAY fancy movements like in his movies. And tho i believe Joe very much that Gene is a beast in fighting and he could probably take Bruce down and choke him out etc. here you can see that Bruce has an incredible speed, timing and power (great attributes) and it would be hard for a lot of grapplers to take him to the ground. I can assure you.

                                    The LB sparring footage was inspirational to me when I first saw it some 12 years ago but back then the quality of the footage was very poor. Now that its been released in recent years in better quality it shows more clearly what BL could do from a distance. But that's the essence of the debate between BL vs grapplers - Would BL be able to keep his distance and intercept with kicks/punches and hurt the grappler? Or could the grappler get inside and take BL down and force him into submission? I think BL would probably beat any similar sized grappler but I don't think his strikes would be enough against a much larger sized grappler.

                                  I can't understand how this vid got 9K upvotes. Rogan just turns into Schaub from another video where he irritated the hell out of everybody, Rogan included, by his stupid take on Bruce Lee episode. Here, Rogan turns around on himself and proves to be a babblemouth, misinforming everyone about the "judo expert"'s credentials and showing zero understanding about the Bruce Lee era's level of martial arts in U.S. and the level of expertise of Bruce Lee himself, who's paradoxically "a personal hero" of Rogan, which is just unbelievable. Being a UFC commentator, Rogan should know more than anybody that skill and efficiency beats just being "a gorilla" and "gorillas" are often the ones who lose most. Rogan, just like the stupid-ass Tarantino, has this "American exceptionality" syndrome deep in his mentality which screws up his objectivity. What could an American adept of JUDO, brought from Japan, TEACH Bruce Lee?! Are you freaking kidding me, Rogan. If Bruce Lee were your "personal hero", you should know from his whole career in U.S. that it was him who was introducing and helping develop the martial-arts world in U.S. and teaching actors and friends, including on movie-sets. What the heck are you talking about. Your gorilla wouldn't even get anywhere close to the lightning-fast cat-like Bruce Lee and would be slapped, scratched with a tiger paw and kicked in the face and in the nuts multiple times while just trying to approach Bruce, and then he would just fly off twenty yards from Bruce's sidekick, that you Rogan yourself are trying to imitate. You're saying ridiculous things and you know NOTHING about your "personal hero", U.S. at the time, history of martial arts and Bruce Lee's era in general. It was a shame listening to this unprofessional uninformed nonsense.

                                    I don't know much about martial arts but it came a cross disrespectful in the scene with Bruce in "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood."

                                      Tarantino is such a pussy himself, he went out of his way to make Lee look bad, all the while it was all bs and made up. Oh, and Tarantino claims to be such a martial arts film fan, making most of his money from Kill Bill, then he does this to Bruce Lee’s memory. The problem is people will believe this lie and tell others Lee wasn’t the legend he truly deserves to be.

                                        Joe is wrong on this one. Lee did have an arrogance to him. It would take less than a minute to look it up.

                                              Have you guys watched Kill Bill? the main character literally wore Bruce Lee’s yellow outfit. Tarantino wouldnt do that if he doesnt respect and idolizes Bruce Lee. Youre all just butt hurt cuz Bruce lost because Tarantino had to establish Cliff as a bad ass a a force to be reckon with. If Bruce hadnt lost then we wouldnt be having this discussion.

                                              Gene Labelle wasnt a stunt man- he was a world class martial artist who did stunts. The scene with Lee makes zero sense in any context. None of the moves in the movie bare a resemblance to Lee's TV work, JKD or his Hong Kong films. Lee never acted or talked like that in real life. Show me any clip of Lee or any interview of his peers, students or family that says so. You cant. Tarantino made the rest of his characters conform to their real life counterparts- Steve McQueen acted like Steve McQueen. Sharon Tate acted like the real Sharon Tate. But for some reason, Tarantino wanted to make a strutting buffoon of Lee.

                                                It feels like Tarantino learned that Lee wasn't the perfect fighting machine that he was hyped up to be, and concluded that Lee must have been a liar and fraud, even though this hype wasn't put out by Lee himself and by all accounts he was a very humble guy and serious practitioner of martial arts.

                                                  I think Bruce Lee is just cocky and confident, when he is only selling himself to movies, gigs, fighting talent and ideas in talkshows and interviews. And not force his ideas to random people on set who don't even care, and I don't think he will fight you just because you disagree with him. He was never a bully like in the movie. The movie just completely disrespected a well respected legend just for the sake of few laughs.

                                                    Yeah. Because all of Tarantino's films are factual and not a tongue in cheek fun jab at history. Go fuck yourself if you're offended by fantasy.

                                                      I never have liked Tarantino's movies because of his "over the top" violence and changing history to make his stories "different or more interesting." Bullshit. The ability to to suspend belief is gone for me in his movies and yet he is praised for great movie making.

                                                          That doesn’t amount to “he could beat me,” but something to consider.

                                                                  But I say that even as the holy and the righteous cannot rise beyond the highest which is in each one of you,
                                                                  So the wicked and the weak cannot fall lower than the lowest which is in you also.

                                                                  And when one of you falls down he falls for those behind him, a caution against the stumbling stone.
                                                                  Aye, and he falls for those ahead of him, who, though faster and surer of foot, yet removed not the stumbling stone."

His honesty about closed minded Martial artist is true..! But worrying about your style not being effective is insecurity notices the older Master's seem 2 be doing just fine. They dont go around challenging each other..? Trianing in Martial arts is fun..! & enjoyable the healthiest thing 4 body mind..! Learning humility that not easy..!
