I think Scorsese lost his touch in the late 90s, maybe already after Casino, but definitely with Gangs of New York, which was in large parts disappointingly conventional. The Aviator was good, but like Gangs I only saw it once, and I thought it had the potential to grow. But I'm not that interested in Hughes and in biographical films in general.

Aviator 7/10

Departed was a mixture of good and weak stuff. 6/10

A real turkey was Shutter Island. 4/10

Oh, and I haven't watched Hugo yet.

Don't. I thought I wouldn't like it but still find things to steal, and nope. Nothing. Not as bad as Warhorse, but still really lame.
The only good thing is that it features the best use of 3D ever, that no one will ever match (except maybe Pina 3D but I didn't see it): the Melies films montage toward the end, fully transcoded in 3D. Absolute perfection and magic.

Wasn't Gravity the best 3 D film? At least the only one which I want to rewatch in 3 D. And the only one in which 3 D looks really three dimensional (actually I don't know the perfect English word for this), and not like a sequence of 2 Levels arranged one behind the other. And the only one in which 3 D did not look partly irritating.

Well, Hugo is on my PC, so I will watch it soon, in 2 D. Actually I already watched the first 10 min.

Gravity has the best by the books use of 3D, and the best 3D I've seen. Hugo uses the weaknesses of the technology as a strength. I'm talking about the pop up book feel that you're mentioning. It perfectly fits Melies' art direction. And that's why it will be so hard to top. The flaw becomes the charm.

Almost each of these sentences is plain wrong, but the last sentence is true so it's ok.

This could be the start of a great debate, no?

Ok, so here is the sad truth: I have spend far too much time on the board today while becoming more and more late for my work. So it's time to go back to work. But I'll be back and explain you why you're so wrong but Shannon is still even greater than you're wrong. WHile waiting you can watch the movie with the commentary track, it's among the most best commentaries I have ever listened. And I have listened like 10 of them so I know.

Well I don't have the DVD so I can't listen to the CT. However, as usual I believe all of your bold claims, and that be said I can't wait for tomorrow.

(I think I saw 13 CT so far in my life.)

Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (2007) - 7/10

In the end I didn't care for it at all, although the start was promising. It's still a good movie, don't get me wrong, not bad by any means, it just doesn't live up to its hype. I think it must be all the drama they injected in it, that I thought it didn't need. Especially the part about the parents and their unequal love for the two brothers, I thought that came right out of the blue, I didn't think it was Sidney Lumet's way of working (a priori to this movie)... Now, something else bothers me: usually I like PSH's performances, but here he annoyed me almost as much as EH, and on the top of that the sexy-yet-mostly-figured out MT pulls out her usual antics. AF okay, he too didn't convince me, but that might be cause of its co-stars. MS the best of them all IMVHO.

I saw this movie like 4 years ago, yet you expect me to remember each of the actors just by using initials? You lazy, lazy bum.   Tongue I got Hoffman, Hawke, and Tomei, that's all. And out of principle, I refuse to go to IMDB to check the cast list.  Tongue Tongue

Haha. I initially planned to write only PSH's name using initials, but then felt that what's good for one must be good for all. Cheesy

NOW, VOYAGER 4/10....... This is supposed to be some sort of classic? God Almighty, what an excruciating piece of shit.... The shtick Paul Henreid does with the cigarettes - as legendary as it has become - was overkilled by Henreid doing it four times; it would have been much better if he had just done it once at the beginning and then once again in that last scene..... The only nice thing I can say about this movie is that it's always fun to watch Claude Rains. Otherwise, this is one movie that had me tearing my hair out waiting for it to end; I only stuck with it all the way through cuz it has become so famous, I sorta just had to see what the fuss was all about. (of course, I knew the famous last line long before I saw the movie, but.I was in such a miserable state by the end, it wouldn't have changed a thing

THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR (1968) 8/10.... McQueen is always good, although this character is probably not the best one for him; he is playing the rich guy living (and laughing) it up; I think the action roles suit him more. But he is always fun to watch. Dunaway was born to play sexy bad girl (or at least "not very good girl") roles like this..... Of course this movie requires lots of suspension of disbelief. But there is one thing that just went waaaaay too far: Dunaway knows there were five guys and five entrances. Fine. But somehow from that she deduces that there must have been a mastermind that hired 5 separate guys who never saw each other etc. exactly as it happened. That is absolutely ludicrous. There isn't the slightest shred of evidence she has any reason to believe that, and as soon as that happens, I roll my eyes. This is so far beyond even the most extreme level of suspension of disbelief. That is the one thing about the story that bothered me (and it wasn't even required for the story; it was probably just contrived as a way of trying to show us how bloody brilliant Dunaway's character is. So brilliant she has like friggin ESP. That's my one problem with the script.... And I had a MAJOR problem with the way the movie uses that split screen ad nauseum. It is a useful tool when used in specific moments to show us several things happening simultaneously, since this caper requires careful coordination. But then it's like Norman Jewison decided he was having so much fun with it, why not just use it at a bunch of random times when it is completely unnecessary to show us the story developing, but it is a great way of being irritating.... Nevertheless, this is a fun movie. :-)
