Joe Pesci has come out from under his rock to team up with the equally iconic twosome that is Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, for a new film directed by none other than the man Martin Scorsese.

I feel like that same exact thing is announced every year.

Silence will be out soon, hoping for a trailer in the coming months.

Here's a new trailer for Scorsese-Winter's new HBO show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBPQ0v86BUA

You two lost your inner child.


(I have very low expectations for Silence, I like the HBO trailer, let's hope the show is good too)

Silence (2016) Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson, dir. Martin Scorsese.

Saw the 1971 adaptation. Very good.

Just saw NEW YORK, NEW YORK for the first time. A piece of shit. Maybe the worst Scorsese movie Ivhave ever scene - either this or Boxcar Bertha. Can't stand Liza Minelli. She sounds like she has a cock in her mouth. Or between her legs. No, not inside her, attached to her. Whoops, I'm getting off topic.

Funny note: for years, the Yankees used to play the song NEW YORK, NEW YORK in Yankee Stadium after each game:  If the Yankees won, the fans were treated to the Frank Sinatra version. If Yankees lost, the fans were tortured with the Liza Minnelli version. This tradition continued until 2001, when Minelli complained about it… So the Yankees decided to just play the Sinatra version after every game.

So, a great song by Sinatra came out of this awful movie. Some of these songs are painful to listen to. I forwarded some of them. Is there one human being alive who can enjoy AROUND AND AROUND AND AROUND AND AROUND .............. Huh?

I never cared for musicals, so I dobn't enjoy the whole "Hollywood musical nostalgia with obvious sets" that this movie is supposed to evoke. 

Painful, painful.

3/10

The obly Scorsese films that I still haven't seem (besides the music/documentary films) are: Kundun, Bringing Out the Dead, The King of Comedy, Hugo, and Shutter Island.

I plan on seeing Bringing out the Dead. Anything else important I should see?

I really liked NY, NY.

From those, The King of Comedy and Shutter Island are essential. I'm a huge Scorsese fan, have seen everything that still exists, and I'd rank those two among his best movies. And don't worry - there are funny parts in KoC, but I would not classify it as a comedy. I know you hate laughing. It makes me laugh maybe, once, twice, three times, but there's far more to appreciate in it than the humor.

Have you seen After Hours?

All the others, still worth seeing. Hugo is the weakest of the bunch, but there's a 30 minute or so segment on film history and Meleis that's fantastic.

Saw Bringing Out the Dead.

Not a good movie. 6/10

And one of the biggest problems is that it sort of is the same thing over and over and over.

From the first few minutes, we see what the issue is – Nicholas Cage is burnt out from crawling through the Dante's Inferno that is the streets of New York late at night, dealing with the scum of society. His partners laugh or ignore or enjoy all the shit, but Cage can't take it any more and feels like he's going crazy – and it's just endless repeated scenes of the same thing. Sure, Cage is going crazier and crazier as the movie goes on, as the sped-up images speed faster and faster. But that's basically all. We see him going from one partner to another, each having his own way of dealing with the shit, but Cage is going crazier and crazier. Night after night he goes out and trudges through the streets and the hospital, scene after scene goes by the of the same thing, and each time he's about to go out for another night in hell I find myself saying, "Not again!"

Authorities on the East Coast have just arrested and indicted a bunch of mafia guys - all the articles are describing it as something straight out of a Martin Scorsese movie. Here is, for example, an article from the LA Times
