It was about 80 minutes too long. An incredible indulgence on the part of Scorcese. The performances were great, and the CGI and production was great. But, there were some 11 minute scenes, that should have been 4 minutes long. And within 24 hours, the film completely left my consciousness. NOT a classic. A perfectly decent film, that was way too long. Not worth all the hype.

I really enjoyed it, but reckon it was probably an hour too long.

 

You're going to get a lot of hype when you have Scorcese, De Niro, Pacino and Pesci

together.

 

I would rate it 7.5 to 8.

I think it would have made a great five part mini-series. It was not a movie.

Apple has dropped a new TV series called Truth Be Told.

They have this annoying system where they release the first

three episodes.....then the other dribble out one at a time every Friday.

 

But this one s very good....about a reporter re-investigating a murder case

that she helped convict 20 years ago.

I wonder. Since Apple stopped innovating, and began just re-booting their product line every year about the time Jobs moved on, if they are capable of the level of creativity needed for a project like film making, and TV shows.

In The Thick of it. A political comedy. Excellent insight into political chicanery.

Stop talking about the very White House. This thread is about entertainment.

Honestly felt Sylvester Stallone did his character proud in this last movie.... 

 

Wasn't great but I loved First Blood & Rambo (3)

 

So after reading all the gumpf reviews about Last Blood, I decided pop it on (My turn for movie) & honestly had an awesome evening in watching it [GF Cooked, fetched the Beer etc...].

 

YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary).... I enjoyed it, had a great night in, had Thai subtitles so GF was happy to watch (hit me at the action parts) after the last horror movie she made me select for her to watch (Drag Me To Hell, guarantee if your TGF/TW want to watch scary movie that will scare the s41t out o her)... she was happy 

 

 

You have to be a Stallone fan to love it. I really like him. He has got something. Even now.

 

Though I found this film way too over the top. But what Hollywood action film is not, these days?

Clint Eastwood and Robert Redford still doing it in their late 80's, 73 is just a boy.

One can easily make an argument that they are both demi-gods. Clint is amazing. With his body of both acting and directing, he is an astonishing talent. Redford had an amazing career as an actor, a director and a producer. And an activist. And what kind of vision did it take for him to invest in the land that came to make up Sundance? 5,000 acres of prime land.

 

Investors began eyeing the picturesque locale as a place to erect expansive condominiums, but Redford wanted “to develop a little and preserve a great deal.” Rejecting advice from New York investors to fill the canyon with an explosion of lucrative hotels and condominiums, Redford saw his newly acquired land as an ideal locale for environmental conservation and artistic experimentation.

 

The investors wanted to put a restaurant near the ski lift. I said that's crazy, it's ugly. I said let's put it a ways away. They said, "But there's a tree over there." I said, "We'll build it around a tree. That'll make it more unique." That's when they realized they were in business with the wrong guy. They said, "Why don't you buy us out?" I took on the whole ball of wax in 1970. I had to spend the next 10 years paying for it with film work.

 

What can one even say? A true man of vision.

'Once upon a Time in Hollywood' had an amazingly violent ending, enjoyed Pitt and DiCaprio.

'Ready or Not' was another surprise bloodbath with a surprisingly pretty lead 'victim'.

The best part of Once upon a time was the last 30 minutes. It all paid off nicely. The Manson ranch scene was beyond bizarre. Barely felt like it was part of the movie, though the attempt to tie it into the storyline was noble, I guess.

Just watched Joker with the wife ,was not expecting to much ,but wow ,what an actor ,we both really enjoyed it ,cant praise it enough .

Yes, agree. It was a vote for social anarchy. Anti corporate ranting. A topic close to my heart. Phoenix was unforgettable. The last 40 minutes or so, was incredible. Loved it. Want to see it again as soon as a good copy is out there.

Agree it's one of those movies that I wished I went to the Cinema & watched it big screen, but I made that mistake with John Wick 3 (Gold Class in Singapore is s$80 (1,760 THB) for the 2 of you, then you order food & wine on top!) & the movie was rubbish.... 

 

Have sworn that I won't pay to watch JW4 when it comes out (unless it's really good, then I'll watch it again at the cinema 🙂 )

What a load of rubbish - Foul mouthed Aussie girl, quite unnecessary for the story. Could only stand to watch the first few minutes.

 

Waste of time and disk space.  :post-4641-1156693976:

 

 

I watched 10 minutes into the 2nd episode and binned it.

Funnily enough I'm at exactly the same episode. It's OK so far, although I was rather wary after the negative review above.

I downloaded the first 4 episodes of Servant on RAR , haven’t watched any as yet as I like to binge the whole series.

I just checked to see that they are okay and they appear to be very dark !!

 

Anyone noticed the same or point me to some good copies.

No, it is very dark, all the copies (4) I've watched have been like that, it's how it was filmed.
