Are you positive that Silence is happening? Cause that's a Scorsese movie I really want to see.

Almost positive, I'm sure we'll hear more about it come later this year. That and his upcoming George Harrison documentary, which is in post-production.

This could be either a David Fincher movie or a M. Night Shyamalan movie.
It's an M. Night Shyamalan movie (I made the mistake of leafing through the novel a couple weeks back. ) Now comes a pan from the NYT:  http://movies.nytimes.com/2010/02/19/movies/19shutter.html?8dpc

No way am I watching this turkey.

Its his best movie in 20 years, since Goodfellas. Just putting the truth up there before Groggy and company have to spew their faggotry.

Here's the movie, I'm not saying this will be 100% accurate obviously. Note: I did not read the script or anything.

anyway, the movie will go two ways: one the supernatural, which was done so many times before and Scorsese simply isn't motivated enough to give the movie what it needs from a visual standpoint. Two, he was led to believe his wife and child were murdered but they're really alive and he sees glimpses of them at the instution, basically a darker scooby doo episode. either way, you know he is the 67th patient or whatever.
Both almost completely wrong, lol. And yea the 67th patient thing is obvious but the trailer giving that away is only a small fraction of the movie's surprises.

This is probably Scorsese's best in terms of visuals, many times it's just incredible to look at. And I'm telling you, Leo really wasn't a great actor in his Titanic days at all, and barely better at all within his Gangs of New York Days. However, with Revolutionary Road and especially Shutter Island, he's quickly involving into a great actor.

Leo was amazing in the Departed (first time I really cared about a Scorsese character). But yeah, I saw (third or fourth time) gangs of new york the other day, and among the film's weaknesses, there is Leo.

What kind of crap is that?

Bringing Out the Dead is brilliant, and Kundun is very good. Which means, from your words, Shutter Island must be fucking Chinese fireworks or some heavy shit like that. Don't make me go see it.

You know I can't trust you when it comes to Scorsese. I just don't believe that this even begins to rival Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, BotD, Goodfellas, ect in terms of visuals. And Leo is a focus group approved eunuch that lacks charisma and has zero screen presence. He's a generic, 73rd rate Alain Delon on his very best day.

I'll see the movie though.

Almost saw this. It was sold out. Went and saw Dr. Parnassus at a discount theater instead.

Well, on repeated viewings I feel BOtD is good, but far from brilliant. Kundun is good too. But I would definitely say Shutter Island is a better movie than each of those.

Yea, when my favorite Marty film is almost without question After Hours...obviously my Scorsese taste is a bit strange. Sure, Shutter Island is much more Hollywood-ish than most of his movies, but I wouldn't say as blatantly as The Aviator or The Departed. As for the visuals, I definitely think it's better than most. Maybe not the best, but better than most.

Leo in Shutter Island surely isn't as great as many of the Scorsese-De Niro teamings (Taxi Driver, King of Comedy, Raging Bull, Mean Streets - Leo doesn't compare to De Niro there). However, it's undeniable that Leo has grown very much as an actor, even within his collaborations with Scorsese. In Gangs of New York, he didn't come close to the greatness of any of De Niro's performances under Scorsese. However, with Shutter Island, there's no question that he's much more impressive than De Niro, in say... New York New York, Cape Fear, Casino, and Goodfellas.

You know the ending from the trailer but I still enjoyed the ride getting there.
I didn't care to see it but Sonny dragged me there and I'm glad I did.
Enjoyable change of pace for Marty (at least he hasn't tackled anything like this since that Cape Fear remake).


Leo doesn't bother me all that much, although he's far from an ideal leading man and it's difficult to take the Leo as Mark Ruffalo's boss, I mean... come on?

It wasn't great, but it wasn't a bad movie either. A lot of times, specifically the scenes with Teddy's wife (and some of the other flashbacks), verged on B-movie quality and were just laughable. Like Firecracker said, obvious ending is obvious, but it's still a fun ride. Good soundtrack. Visually great to look out. Made me badly want a cigarette.
