    Finally watched it. Wolf of Wallstreet is easily one of the worst movies Scorsese has made.

    More akin to a Hangover movie than to Casino.

    I liked the idea behind The Irishman, and while the film was slow, I appreciated what it was trying to do, even if it dragged on a bit too long at some points.

    However, the main gimmick, the de-aging technology or whatever it is called, was a miss and detrimental to the film.
    It reminded me of the Polar Express in a sense that it tried to popularize a new technology, but only managed to cause a huge whiplash among the audience taken aback by the uncanny valley effect.

    It was painfully obvious that beneath the fresh coat of paint where old men who were moving and acting like old men usually do. I couldn't bring myself to enjoy the film fully.

    Having another actor play the part of younger De Niro would have been better. Or doing the reverse thing - having a younger actor play the whole film, performing the role of the older character later on under the ton of quality make up. For instance True Detective Season 3 did that pretty well.


    This way you got a long-winded drama that had too little meat on its bones which was somehow also a tech demo.

    It's hilarious. They use a most likely very expensive technology to de-age the actors, but then forget they can't de-age their physical capabilities. So you have hilarious scenes of clear 70+ years actors trying to do a scene of them beating someone up, but it's clear they are struggling.

    Watching James Gandolfini in his prime beating someone up in The Sopranos and then watching the scene linked above and there's a night and day difference.

    Same thing occurred to me after recently watching The Sopranos.

    I mean, I get what Scorsese and the crew were trying to do. It just didn't work out and the film suffered for it.

    Monica Lewinski looks bangable now.
    If I was Bill I'd have a picture of her in Hillary's bedroom.

    I think Americans should use cricket terminology. " Hey I just got bowled a googly ". Step up to the crease ". " WOW he hit that for 6 " " My whites are full of shit stains, who does the laundry? "

    Those kind of phrases.
