The Irishman - shud be more aptly named Luca Brasi.


Hated the film. Scorsese fucked his own legacy so hard that Goodfellas & Casino need to be booked into some fancy clinic for major reconstruction surgery.

Interesting.

I really enjoyed the languid pace among other things. So much so, in fact, that I watched it in the theater early in November, and again on Netflix.

I think Scorsese was more unapologetic in his delivery with this movie. No more repartee and violence for the sake of it. The conversation carried out the majority of the violence.

One of my favourites.

Just watched it.

Nice to see the old gang.

But they are way passed it for these kind of roles.

Also the movie is 3:30h long and slow paced.

And whats with de niro makeup, he looks like a wax statue.

Goodfellas is a masterpiece, this is not.

I'm not upset with the performances, loved Harvey Keitel I wish there was more of him, I liked Joe Pesci very much he shud've been shown more in the film. I didnt like Bob's character, it didnt not suit him one bit, the big body CGI made him look like Frankenstein's monster he shud have played Santo Trafficante or Carlos Marcello in the film.

My biggest disappointment with this is the story, the direction the film took... it shud've been abt the mafia & the kennedys with a little mix of Hoffa, the bootlegging, election rigging, kennedys busting the unions,
Trafficante/Marcello (Bob) siding with Hoffa against the Kennedys and finally Bob falling out with Hoffa... make it 4:30hrs long, I dont give a fuck, but make it electrifying... this was a piece of garbage.

Ray Ramano, Stephen Graham, & Bobby Cannavale were wasted in the film they shud've had more prominent roles... hell, the bartender shudve had 2/3 more scenes he was cool.

This is Ray Liotta's curse on the film... they shudve had him in it. This shudve been the final piece in Goodfellas & Casino trilogy but instead its garbage.


One plus, I found a sick tune through it all...

Movie was brilliant. Pacino playing his ass off, his first great role in a very long time.

The problem is, some people just want a Goodfellas rehash. Its not. These guys are geriatric, a high energy flick like that wouldve been pathetic.
This movie was more contemplative and Franks character had more depth than any Scorsese character since Taxi Driver.
Thats great imo, and exactly what Scorsese should do right now.

That movie is all nostalgia/retrophilia.
If you're not fascinated by late 60s LA or the Manson case, then I imagine it must've been pretty boring to watch.

I liked it. Far from Tarantino's best, but it was enjoyable, unlike say the Kill Bill movies.

Best bit in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood is right near the end where Leo is home making drinks and he hears a loud car outside his house, he starts walking to the window to take a look and bitching abt him living on a private rd, high property taxes & no peace and quiet, guy gets to the window and sees an old rusty car parked up and he goes: "Bunch of Goddamn fucking hippies."


Lol! Its the way he said it... cracked me up.


Overall a horrible QT movie.
