    Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction blew my then-teenage mind so they will always have a fond place in my heart but Once Upon A Time In... Hollywood is a better movie. Time is the real test and it hasn't even been out for 5 months so this is premature to say the least but I think it's possibly his best movie.

    Amazon delivered my copy of the collector's edition yesterday (hooray!) and the 45 rpm has Bring A Little Lovin' by Los Bravos and the flip side has Paul Revere And The Raiders doing Good Thing.

    Best Buy always had my pre-orders delivered early (usually the Friday, or Saturday before a Tuesday release) so I kind of expected it with this one. Didn't happen, in fact I got an e-mail saying congratulations, your order will arrive early (Monday, the 9th) only to have that altered to "new delivery date-Tuesday December 10 a few hours later.

    That beats being late. :) I never get things early (over the last few months, I frequently get Amazon pre-orders after Tuesday) so I was pretty surprised and happy to get this one before release date.

    Increasingly, Amazon is shipping on release Tuesday instead of us receiving on release Tuesday. They need to be taken down a few notches.

    I ordered the UHD yesterday morning. I hope to have it in my P.O. box when I get home this weekend. Looking forward to seeing it again
    (I didn’t stay through the end credits in the theater, so I think I missed something that happens, at least that’s what someone said on the movies thread).

    I probably would have stayed if I were alone
    (my brother was with me, and he immediately got up from his chair as soon as the credits started rolling).

    I am waiting for my Target delivery of the bluray and I cannot wait to see it again! It has been a long time since a film resonated with me the way this one did - I believe it will really reward multiple viewings.

    Still, it amazes me that there are so many pre-judgements against the film. I was so surprised to read Stefanie Powers say just last week that she did not want to see the film because it "trivialized" Jay Sebring and Sharon Tate, both of whom were her friends. It must be so surreal and painful to have a film made about people you knew, so I don't mean this about her comments, but I remain amazed how one this one film garnered so many negative pre-judgements.

    If it was shipped via UPS, good luck on getting it soon! An iPad I ordered from Best Buy is now 6 days past due. UPS is having serious problems meeting delivery estimates, there are tens of thousands of UPS packages that are late (according to a UPS Store employee).

    I've got a $100 Best Buy gift card so I'll use that to pick up Once Upon a Time in Hollywood 4K at the store. I plan to pick it up early tomorrow so I can watch it in the afternoon (while the wife is out with friends, that way I can crank it up LOUD!). :)

    I can see how family or friends of the real victims would be bothered by any thing showing someone they loved but I don't think there's any disrespect or trivialization intended or shown in the movie. In the case of Sharon Tate, I think the movie is something of a tribute to her as it presents her as a lovely person
    and it rewrites history to go the way it should have gone instead of the sad way it did go.

    Amazon is a little late with delivery. Release date is today (at least that is what is on my release calendar) and it won't arrive till Thursday.

    I ordered mine from target as part of the recent B2G1 sale. I haven't pre-ordered from Target very often so don't have a history on delivery times from them. They shipped it on Sunday but it is sitting at the local UPS distribution center (since yesterday) and tracking says it won't be delivered until tomorrow :angry:.

    Me too. But, admittedly, they had told me that when I pre-ordered it.

    It seems odd for a title of this profile.

    Amazon is now telling me I should expect to take receipt of my copy of the 4k OUaTiH tomorrow (Wednesday) instead of Thursday.

    Got a question. In the Tarantino Universe, is there any suggestion that Kurt Russell's character is Stuntman Mike?
