    Wow, this is so astoundingly bad. I have no idea if the book is based on it's any good, but the movie makes it look like pretentious horseshit. It has a weird imbalance between absurd comedy with...

    Yeah, I like that scene and I have no problems with the CGI in it, no more than in the rest of the film... I think it might be time to admit I'm a fanboy, though. Marty is my Marvel.

    I think you might be demonstrating a failure to show appreciation.

    Yeah, but... the content is not the same. With that criterion, every Fellini, every Bergman, every Woody Allen movie is the same.

    Hugo is beautiful. And whoever thinks Irishman is the same movie as Goodfellas or Casino wasn't paying attention to any of those.

    My lifelong dream is meeting Scorsese, and if I actually did, I think I could do nothing but cry like a baby.

    Hahah yeah that was priceless.

    I think Scorsese felt obliged to show those two assassination attempts because they were a big part of the real story and probably a huge deal at the time, coming...

    Also, this is probably the best featurette about The Irishman so far, and I'm watching them all. What he says about his meeting with Frank Serpico is gold.

    Huh, no, dude, come on. Frank is clearly not a guy in touch with his emotions. He obviously cares a lot about his daughters, he just doesn't know how to relate to a child, in contrast with Hoffa who...

    Has anyone made a meme yet with "don't hassle the Hoffa"? I'd like to see that.

    Well, I obviously disagree. The lenght of some scenes is a deliberate choice, I think. For example, in Frank's homage party, Russell and Sheeran trying to talk sense into Hoffa are obviously long...

    For me, at least, the first shot of young De Niro was indeed jarring and uncomfortable (it reminded me of The Polar Express) and made me afraid the entire film was going to feel like that, but as...

    That premise is ridiculous and it's not what I'm talking about. I would argue that state-subsidized filmmaking leads to movies that wouldn't be made otherwise due to their limited commercial appeal.

    I agree that the script could have been subtler. I disagree that this film is somehow a menace to society, and I'm aware that's not the argument you were making.
