      Not as great as you'd hope from Scorsese, but still good.

      • Should be seeing it tomorrow.

        And my Shutter mancrush is John Carroll Lynch, for sure.
        The serious crush goes to Michelle Williams.

          I know I do.

          I'm sure, I'll love Shutter Island. But as Job pointed out, the reviews havent been amazing. Last time I checked rottentomatoes, it was an 88 or something like that and now it's only at 66% (58% top critics) with 87 reviews.

          Consensus: It may not rank with Scorsese's best work, but Shutter Island's gleefully unapologetic genre thrills represent the director at his most unrestrained.

          Thanks BoneKrusher^

            You should live so long, Brod, but I like others am still creeped out by your stalking research.

            Better for the TV thread but wth: Night Gallery sought to relive the greatness of Twilight Zone & the B&W Golden era of early TV through the true genius of writer Rod Serling. He died midway through their 2nd season of a massive cardiac arrest while mowing his lawn in LA, he was a chain smoker btw. I guess they had enough episodes int he can to make it through a 3rd season. I thought it was a one season b/c it was so short lived.

            Checking Shutter Island reviews now.....

                This makes sense. There was a time when I was convinced you were a 17 year old girl.

                • Get Him to the Greek doesnt even look like it's from the same universe as Forgetting Sarah Marshall. And why have Jonah Hill play a different character now? Disappointing.

                    Here you go:

                    Apparently this film isn't too horrible at all, lots of gothic creepy atmosphere & a great disturbing soundtrack. This is the 3rd Dennis Lehane work commited to film recently, Scorsese has directed at least 2 now. And count Scorsese among those with a Leonardo man crush, the critical consensus seems to be that he got the characterization right this time.

                    I actually liked DeCaprio as Amsterdam in Gangs of NY, it wasnt as bad as they said IMO, Daniel Day Lewis blew everyone else of the screen as hyper-patriot Bill the Butcher. DeCaprio was totally miscast in The Aviator though, the real Howard Hughes was very tall (about 6-6, had trouble fitting in the cockpits of his planes) & thin also very dark, & DeCaprio is shorter & blonder, also failed to capture the true depraved obsessive genius of the man, fellow Texan with the appropriate accent Tommy Lee Jones did a better job with Hughes in the made for TV movie in the late 70s.

                    • Leo did just fine in the Aviator. Some would say, it was his best performance as an adult. He may not have had an exact likeness in appearance but, he did an excellent job. The movie, is very well received, as is his performance as Howard Hughes.

                      As for Gangs of NY. I love the movie, he and DDL are fantastic in it, especially DDL. That being said, it's actually not one of Scorsese's best works behind the camera. It's not without its flaws. I love the movie but, I dont love a lot of the shots and how they fit together. The editing is a bit off, here and there. It's not the smoothest of rides. I tend to nitpick whenever I watch it but, I'd agree the critics were too hard on it.

                      And in honor of Leo, RT was counting down his best movies, the other day....

                      • Scorcese and DiCaprio were also supposed to do a Teddy Roosevelt movie together. I think it might still be in the works but I'm not sure.

                        Lehane has a big following with his books. I've never read them but Affleck, Scorcese, and Eastwood have all adapted his novels into screenplays.

                          • Shutter Island was everything I hoped for, I don't understand how so many people gave it a negative review... they must have a ridiculous standard set for Scorsese. The movie was brilliant, I didn't see the ending coming at all but I guess I didn't try to. Really creepy, intense movie, I loved it.

                              For many...it starts and ends right here.



                              Villainy at its finest.

                                I'm suprised you didn't love it considering it was one of the darker periods in New York City history.
