Does anyone know what time it's suppose to release on Netflix? Netflix says Wednesday but its late afternoon already and know sign of it yet. I'm assuming either late tonight or tomorrow morning.

I am clearing some time this weekend to watch for sure. Goodfellas is one of my all time favourite movies and I rate most of Scorcese's output highly, so I am well keen for this one!

Yea πŸ˜€ that's is how we will be watching it then onto a huge projector screen . They have also just updated their leather media recliner seats πŸ’Ί which were their Xmas present to themselves.

Gave up after an hour. Not really my type of film. Think I had my expectations a little too high after everyone hyping it up. it feels like a movie from a different time. And it's a very slow burn. I think many will struggle with it. At the same I'm sure many will enjoy it

Ok, here's my thoughts - I will give no plot spoilers.

 

First up, the digital de-ageing bothered me and, unfortunately, I fixated on it for most of the 3.5 hours running time. Putting a 40-year old face onto a 70-year old body doesn't work as the actor still moves like the age that they are. It was just plain off-putting.

 

That aside, I thought it was a good, but not great, film. It moved along well enough that I didn't notice the running time, but thought it lacked the intensity of early Scorcese films like Goodfellas and Casino.

 

Joe Pesci was a standout, great to see him back.

I agree with your de-aging comments. Very off putting.

 

I have watched about 65% of it so far. I'm hoping to finish it tonight. Not as good as some reviewers would have you think. Seems that if you have a good portfolio as a director, reviewers turn a blind eye to any lesser efforts.

 

Still, a solid 7/10 from me, from what I have seen so far. And yes, Joe Pesci is the standout for me.

the de-aging was rubbish and occasionally creepy like polar express.

 

they might botox the face but the actors still move like old buggers !

 

that aside, i loved the film !

 

this is the best scorsese film since goodlfellas.

I found the blue eyes far more distracting and off-putting than the de-aging.

 

Overall a good movie though.

How about Gangs Of New York and The Wolf of Wall Street (possibly my favorite film of all time).

gangs - so so script, peak cocks was the age of innocence*, weak acting with an ott day lewis and wimpy de caprio.

 

wolf - i hated this, it was glorification of a bunch of despicable, boring people rather than satire and that damn de caprio again !

 

* this is the real masterpiece from post-goodfellas scorsese, he called it it his most violent film, underneath those carefully cultured manners was a brutality that would have shocked even tommy devito.

 

very close to goodfellas for greatness.
