I watched it.

 

Wasnt great nor was it terrible. It's middle of the road Scorsese. He went for an epic but it's not quite that level.

 

A lot of it was filmed in and around my neighborhood as Goodfellas was. Always cool to spot things...

 

Pacino was actually fine. I was expecting him to be an over the top shitshow.

Good to see the great Harvey Keitel in a small role.

Pesci was fantastic. 

DeNiro...fuck him. He was garbage.

 

Looked all these guys up.....

Keitel is 80, Pacino 79, Scorsese 77, DeNiro 76, Pesci 76.

I haven't liked DeNiro in anything since...Ronin? 

 

Once he did Analyse This he turned into a buffoon overnight and started doing shit after shit comedy bullshit. Did he go bankrupt or something? 

 

I can't figure out what the fuck he's been doing for the past 20 years.

Since Ronin, he's done 49 movies 🤣

DeNiro was so shit in it. They should have used a stunt double when he had a mini fight thing. He was supposed to be 30 or so years younger in the scene. He looked 100. His kicks were so bad 🤣🤣

The Focker movies were good.

The first one was funny.

 

I don't know what it is about him since around 2000 or so. 

 

He's like a totally different actor. Whatever the hell he is doing he became very unlikeable. It's hard to articulate quite what it is. 

 

Take his character in Last Vegas for example. Just a horrible angry prick. 

 

Now I know he never exactly played nice characters but look at the difference between him in Heat & Ronin Vs anything he has done in the past 20 years. 

 

There's no range or nuance to any of his performances in the that period. Just full on angry old bollocks. 

 

Pacino on the other hand is usually a delight, even if he is hamming it up more often than not.

Nicholson had the sense to retire thank god. 

 

 

I think it is pretty obvious Jack has a disdain for the public. I think they will do a wellness check some day and he'll be dead.

The bar is high.

Will it be more enjoyable than Avengers: Endgame?

No. I'm about 90 minutes in. If you dont know much about the people portrayed in the movie, its gonna be confusing as fuck.

Well he's 82, so yeah that's possible.

 

His last great performance was probably Anger Management.

I am looking forward to watching this, but with a 6 months child and work and trying to have a family life I guess Christmas holiday is the time we will try to sit on the couch with my wife. We can't even finish the new season of The Crown due to the lack of time.

 

I do not expect much of this movie. But I do hope it is going to be FINE.
