Dallas Buyers Club is the best movie I've seen all year.
The Wolf of Wall Street - Far too long. I liked it ok, but there was tons of fat they could have trimmed from it to make it much shorter- and with that, it would have been more enjoyable. If you really have a story that moves, I can watch a 3 hr film, but this? Drugs, I'm rich, I do drugs, I'm rich, drugs, drugs, rich, rich... blah blah. Nothing really happening.
I'm a huge Leo fan, but I feel if this is what he finally wins an Oscar for- it's sort of bitter-sweet. He's got far better performances on his resume.
I think Leo is really over rated.
His best emotion is SHOUTING IN ANY SCENE WHERE HE SHOWS EMOTION.
Agree 100%. I left the theatre just feeling exhausted. 3 hour films are fine as long as they keep the story moving... didn't happen in the Wolf on Wall Street. Again, really like the movie, but if it was shorter I think it would of been even better.
I think the longest/tedious movie I've seen is The Good Shepherd (sp?) with Matt Damon. Love Damon and he does good as the character, but the character is simply boring.
I had to watch the original Les Miserables, the one made in the 30s, in a history of film class... it was 5 something hours long. Talk about awful.
Les Miserable s, indeed...
Yep. Sometimes even bad jokes are too easy to skip...
Hmmm... to me, he's one of the best doing it. Goes far beyond his emotional scenes, too.
But have you seen The Aviator?... That performance is an acting clinic. Or hell, go back to What's Eating Gilbert Grape if you really need a proof of talent.
