2019-11-29 22:16
I agree with OP. Movie was meh, kinda entertaining, would probably never watch again
2020-01-16 03:25
hmmm gotta check out but critics said it was good tho
2019-11-29 16:54
because they suck old actors dick. the movie is really bad and has nothing new to say. boring to the bone. I've seen a few critics saying something along the same lines as my opinion tho
2019-11-29 16:57
well it could be bad but I wanna see pacino deniro pesci men
2019-11-29 16:58
this is the trap lol. only reason the movie is even released. if they had B actors on main roles, the movie would be a straight failure.
2019-11-29 17:00
maybe ur right but this is probably last time we see them together so gotta watch
2019-11-29 17:02
if you don't fall asleep after watching it, come here and tell me what was your impression :)
2019-11-29 17:04
sure gonna share my opinion btw Im a cinema student what about you ?
2019-11-29 17:06
I study a lot of things, including arts. I've seen thousand of movies from all over the world. There are a lot of good mafia movies away from the cliche scorsese and godfather. What comes on top of my mind now is the stuff from Johnnie To. Check this out lol :] youtube.com/watch?v=vMjRZJeTL0I
2019-11-29 17:09
mens but youre underrating godfather and goodfellas etc ? can not agree here with you mens.
2019-11-29 17:18
no, they are good movies. but they are cliche aswell. there's a lot more to movies and cinema than these blockbusters. I do not consider none of them to be a masterpiece in any manner, but this is only my opinion.
2019-11-29 17:20
do you even know what's a cliché? do you even know what's a blockbuster?
2019-11-29 17:31
compared to a lot of mob movies, these two movies are def blockbusters, but maybe you're going with a more strict meaning for the word. about clichés, the two movies have been copied a lot by bad american cinema mainly, and themselves they use a lot of clichés. np at all with that. just saying there's more to mob cinema and cinema as a whole
2019-11-29 17:36
" the two movies have been copied a lot by bad american cinema mainly," Yeah that's the very definition of influential, it's not a cliché if you're the one that made it an established trademark of mob movies, you're just watching them 40-50 years after their release through a modern lens About the blockbuster term, it seems like you are not aware of the troubles Scorsese had to find fundings for his films
2019-11-29 17:59
U angry? The Irishman is just copying old formulas, clichés. I'm aware Scorsese had problems to fund his movie, because it is really bad. Not surprising at all.
2019-11-29 19:40
I'm angry about what? I was talking about Goodfellas and The Godfather, thought it was pretty clear
2019-11-29 21:21
Nice to talk to you. Have fun in life
2019-11-29 21:22
Same to you, hopefully you will grow up one day and learn how to have a discussion with adults
2019-11-29 21:36
You are saying nothing dude. You are just being picky with words and their meaning. Is there a debate going on? We seem to agree both movies have been influential and copied all around. We probably agree both of them used stuff from the past and other productions, which is obvious. We both most probably agree The Irishman is a mob movie and has nothing of innovation to the genre or to the art. Everything is alright, am I wrong?
2019-11-29 22:02
I haven't seen the irishman yet, I haven't said a single thing about the movie, I'm aware that the topic is about it, I was replying to your post about "clichès", I hear too many people treating old movies like run of the mill movies, because they have watched all the films that have been influenced by them and it's not really fair, then you got angry and overly defensive over nothing
2019-11-29 22:14
I'm not angry whatsoever, but I admit I thought you were angry before, probably mistakenly lol I have some knowledge of cinema and arts and history of them all, and I can realize at least how Godfather was so influential (not so sure about Goodfellas though, scorsese is really tier 2 or 3 in hollywood imo, not like copolla tier 1 and others), but as I said before, it's not a masterpiece (to me at least). Also, what I mean with cliché is it is cliché now. A movie using formulas from movies like godfather today, while not refreshing it in any means, are being cliché. Which is the case with the irishman, you will probably agree when you watch it. Best use of it was some joyful debate on this post to be fair, 3h very badly spent I almost slept 2 times lol.
2019-11-29 22:29
these are not blockbusters tho and are best gangster movies of all time
2019-11-29 17:32
I expect you to have seen at least around 100 or 200 mob movies to say which are the best. Or are you conveying specialized media opinion?
2019-11-29 17:37
take a look at this, top8 or 10 movies all time by imdb: Inception (2010) PG-13 | 148 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi. ... The Dark Knight (2008) PG-13 | 152 min | Action, Crime, Drama. ... The Shawshank Redemption (1994) R | 142 min | Drama. ... Interstellar (2014) PG-13 | 169 min | Adventure, Drama, Sci-Fi. ... Meet Joe Black (1998) ... Prisoners (2013) ... Shutter Island (2010) ... Se7en (1995) lol what a shame
2019-11-29 17:21
lol where did you get this ? Joe Black is not even top 250 in imdb
2019-11-29 17:31
lol just typed "best movie all time imdb" on google and this was first result
2019-11-29 17:38
then thats random pick, you cann see top 250 movies and these are just by average movie goers rating

it's about old men with their sad stories and their regrets + mob aesthetics It could be called Depression Mob or sumthing lol don't waste your time unless you are a celebrity fetishist or a mob fetishist

2020-01-16 03:02
Great performance by the actors. De Niro problably nominated for an Academy Award, same for Al Pacino for best actor in a supporting role.
2019-11-29 16:56
undeserved.
2019-11-29 16:57
Really ? They were really convincing imo.
2019-11-29 17:01
Convincing is the least you expect from a decent actor. These guys did exactly the kind of roles they did their entire carreers, with nothing new whatsoever. It's like a rerun of a rerun of a rerun of a rerun of old major. Pure moneygrabbing. The script is pure bullshit has nothing to say. What is this awful movie even about? Depression? Boredom? Lack of perspective?
2019-11-29 17:04
The movie is inspired by true events, it's here to tell a story that many people don't know about.
2019-11-29 17:07
Yeah, a story that very few people care about. This fact is even recognized on this script when the nurse admits to the delusional deniro she doesn't know what he's talking about and doesn't give a shit. We could say we have 3 or 4 perspectives for this script: 1- crime stories 2- the burden of being a criminal and emotional/familial impacts 3- mental disease 4- unions/political stories. None of this was well done, with enough depth. Very very bad.
2019-11-29 17:13
For me this movie is what I was waiting for. I'm probably not gonna watch it in a long time. I have a question for you ? I want to watch a movie by Scorsese but I don't know which one between Casino and Goodfellas. What do you suggest ?
2019-11-29 17:28
Casino is much better imo, even though it has problems. In a lot of ways it captured the spirit of it's time on interesting manners, and it's very entertaining and intense. Good movie :)
2019-11-29 17:32
Ok thanks.
2019-11-29 17:48
I agree about De Niro’s performance not being innovative, but Pesci and Al Pacino are great in the movie.
2019-11-29 17:21
They are alright, but the script is so shallow it goes for nothing. Pacino's character clearly has a very interesting mental condition, but we don't get to see it in any apropriate depth: instead, we get him complaining about people being late for meetings like 10 times in 3 hours wtf? For an extreme example, you could see the mental breakdown he depicts on Scarface. Also, we talking about Pacino because the main character was really boring: all he does is follow orders and try to be loyal and look into horizon looking depressed.
2019-11-29 17:25
De Niro's performance not innovative, but he fitted perfectly in the role.
2019-11-29 17:30
Pesci is gonna take the Academy Award though
2019-11-29 17:50
You think ? For me Al Pacino was better.
2019-11-29 19:30
Yeah. It is close but Pesci just gave off a great vibe during the movie. He just fit better into the frame than Pacino imo.
2019-11-29 19:33
Maybe. We'll see in January.
2019-11-29 20:20
I guess you were right. Joe Pesci was nominated and Al Pacino wasn't.
2020-01-15 09:22
Weren't they both nominated? Anyway how the hell did you remember this threads existence?
2020-01-15 17:26
Oh yeah Al Pacino was also nominated sorry. I kept this thread in favorite ;)

Gil-galad was an Elven-king. Of him the harpers sadly sing; the last whose realm was fair and free between the Mountains and the Sea. His sword was long, his lance was keen. His shining helm afar was seen; the countless stars of heaven's field were mirrored in his silver shield. But long ago he rode away, and where he dwelleth none can say; for into darkness fell his star in Mordor where the shadows are.

Very bad movie, wouldn't recommend 10/10
2019-11-29 17:20
Saw the trailer and thought "the same shit again only actors and roles with too much ego what a crap". Scarface and Godfellers are very good movies and you should see them but this?? trailer is enough to say it is bullshit. Ecspecially Netflix trailers, they always show the whole movie LUL.
2019-11-29 17:22
Once upon a time in... Hollywood was much better and it was carried by young generation

if you can play 4h straight then you can watch a movie too

2019-11-29 22:13
It was a great movie. Of course, it’s not for everybody. The screenplay follows the same recipe of former Scorsese’s mob pictures. Just as Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, it’s always great to admire great works that don’t follow the old formula from the Hollywood movies once in a while... The acting of Pesci (he was retired since 2004, I think) and Al Pacino are incredibly great. Also, it’s always satisfying to see De Niro performing. Despite the movie’s length (3h30min), the editing, cinematography and mix of different timelines make the film not being boring at any moment. 9/10. I repeat, it’s not a movie for Fast and Furious and Transformers spectators... it’s the genuine art of making cinema.
2019-11-29 17:29
genuine art of making cinema? rofl there ain't even a decent story lol
2019-11-29 17:34
It’s a true story, based on a book. What were you expecting, Drogon and Knight King showing up? The story was edited and well filmed under three different timelines. But cinema is art: You may hate a Van Gogh, I may love, etcetera... Nonetheless, the movie is technically great. I loved it.
2019-11-29 19:01
I didn't read the book, but probably it's a very bad one. The story has no depth at all. Yeah technically it's an ok movie.

2019-11-29 18:19
i think it was great. great from directing, script, performance. only complain i have is the runtime. 2h40m would be my preferences. another brilliant film under scorsese belt, but i personally dont think he's anywhere near kubrick's level
2019-11-29 18:35
Personally thought every aspect was absolutely amazing, great film.
2019-11-29 19:25
It's not a movie for kids, so you probably should have stayed away from it. The only real flaw it has, is the 3h30m thing. It could have lasted maybe 2h50 or something. Other than that, it's a pretty good movie, and in an era where it's blockbuster after blockbuster, mixed with some "i'm black/gay/lesbian/etc. and my life is really hard" overrated shit movies, it's nice to actually get a change in the landscape of cinematography Once Upon a Time in Hollywood could be another example of this oldstyle kinda 90's yet refreshing movies.
2019-11-29 19:34
could made a miniserie off it instead off making a 3h30min long film
2019-11-29 19:43

Pretty bad film. Boring. Bad pacing. De Niro is too old to play a tough guy. In the beginning where he's supposed to be young and kicking people's asses he looks ridiculous. Overall a pointless film. If you're gonna put everything on screen that was on the page might as well just read the book.
2019-11-29 22:35
yeah! it's like mob movies for the third age

its one of the best movies of the decade and most people agree that it is great you should stick to marvel

best movie of the decade? ROFL ROFL ROFL ROFL
2019-11-30 01:57
did not say it was THE best but "its one of the best movies of the decade" you seem to have a low iq
2019-11-30 03:03
lol never you are clueless maybe one of the most boring movies of the decade. maybe, because I don't think it can accomplish that either
2019-11-30 03:42
you dont have the patience to appreciate subtetly
2019-11-30 18:39
I certainly do not, as they are all glorified meaningless details. Even scorsese admits to that. It is not "subtle" because it has NOTHING AT ALL to say. What it has to say is plain stupid. what is the movie even about? there is no depth whatsoever
2019-11-30 19:13
Its a documentary trying to be a movie.

Watched it in 3 sittings, lol.. Apart from Al Pacino there wasn't much I truly liked about the movie: Too long; dull action scenes; not the best story honestly; De Niro did not fit playing the "Irishman" imo..

movie was so fucking trash... De niro trying act like young badass, it was so comical to watch him... They shouldve just keep him as the one remembering young times and get some young actors to play them.. Instead we have cringy de niro fight scenes.. Literally old poppa doing young shit... Movie was too fucking long, no tempo, boring story, boring characters... If u compare it to old Casino or goodfellaz or smth its so fuckign trash................. And critics can suck my c0ck, they will rate highly anyhing de niro or pacino is in..
2020-01-15 22:31
i agree but it wasn't that bad i rate 6/10
2020-01-16 02:46
I didn't think it was bad at all. Pretty enjoyable for the most part, but also extremely overrated.
