OK, so I am usually a bit apprehensive about seeing a Tarantino film (sometimes a tad too violent for this lass) even though I appreciate the story he is trying to tell, but in this movie I believe Quentin has outdone himself and I thought it was bloody brilliant (huge five stars to Brad and Leo)!  And spoiler alert, even though I dreaded watching the ending knowing a bit about the story beforehand, I was pleasantly surprised with the twist (and only wish that had been the ending in real life).  The soundtrack is excellent!

Wow, 

Might have to just go see that. What a list of stars. We go to the movies every Sunday unless there is just nothing out we want to see. I go for the popcorn, I am obsessed with popcorn! Lol

Thanks for sharing,

I didn't like the soundtrack. When you think of all the great music available from 1969, I don't know why no music from The Beatles, The Roiling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, Crosby Stills & Nash, Joni Mitchell, Sly & The Family Stone, Three Dog Night, The Youngbloods, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Blood Sweat & Tears or The Doors. All these bands had hits in 1969. Maybe it would cost too much too use something from these other bands?

I have seriously cut back going to the movies in theaters - the smell of the popcorn drives me nuts and I can't eat it any more. For some reason, it swells up and causes a very painful partial blockage that takes hours to pass. Instead I just watch at home on dvd. But I really miss popcorn!

Seeing the line-up you have there I may have to change my mind about the soundtrack!  Then again any music from the last century is above and beyond anything made today.

But as it was set in Hollywood and given the subject matter I thought the music chosen reflected the era well, particularly the song below, almost like it was made for the movie. 

Appreciate your opinion and thanks for the reminder of some great musicians.

That song wasn't part of the soundtrack in Southern California.  Was it on the soundtrack in Australia?

Part of the 12.30 song was used as the effwit Manson family drove up to Rick Dalton's house and also I think part of it was used as Sharon Tate danced at the party with who I assume were Michelle Phillips and Mama Cass but I could be wrong about the latter as I have had the song on a loop in my head since I saw the movie!

Funnily enough I note that "12.30" is not listed on the soundtrack CD but might be in the "incidental music".
