I found the last one third of the movie profoundly disappointing. What was the movie actually about?
It takes a big set of huevos call all of the marvel movies something other than cinema, while guardians of the galaxy two was centered around abusive versus absentee fatherhood, and Thor Ragnarok centered itself around the idea of colonialism being irredeemable and that the colonial society should be destroyed.
What grand revelation did the Irishman say?
Old folks get old.

Great review. Although I must say I did find some of the CG anti-aging technology to be quite distracting. Particularly on Deniro. They made his eyes almost glow with this strange pale blue light ... like he was a White Walker or something.
Other than that tho, I enjoyed the film overall.

In the same year that Todd Phillips, director of the "amazing" trilogy The Hangover, made what is essentially a knock-off Scorsese movie that sucked ass majoris, but made a shit ton of money by being technicaly a comic book movie and thus tricking the masses of brainwashed fanboys into thinking it's a legitimate art-house movie in this genre (spoiler alert: it's NOT), Scorsese comes to show him how it's done with an actually brilliant art-house movie the likes of which it seems today only he can make. AWESOME!!!! Suck it, Todd!!!

"This might well be the best movie your great-uncle watches in 20- minute increments before bed over the course of two months this year!" Favorite line. :D

Good film, but it had a few scenes that just ran long. Bob's review is spot on about the un-Scorseselike lack of soundtrack to drive the cinematography. With the stark tone and unromantic look at mob life, it feels like Scorsese drew more from Donnie Brasco or Kill the Irishman than his own previous forays in the genre.

Watched this masterpiece a few days ago.
Its a return to the golden days of gangsterclassics like: Goodfellas, Casino and the Godfather.
If you liked these movies even a little The Irishman is an absolute must watch.
It shows exactly why Martin Scorsese is one of the best directors of all time.
Easily one of the best movies in a very long time.

Not that I want to add fuel to the fire, but that "Cinema" Shark Tales shot should be a gif.

Sorry Bob, you lost me at Marty bringin up Marvel. He made the statement on how superhero films seem like amusement park rides (or something to that effect) one time and gave his opinion and now it’s the media, including yourself going on about it. He’s only brought it back up because he keeps getting asked about it... You mentioning it here in your video is what gives that comment life. 🤦🏻‍♂️ Which I think it’s been taken out of context anyhow, but at this point what does it matter. Fanboys are up in arms because God forbid anyone has an opinion that’s not aligned with theirs.

I'm glad to see the return of epic movies that aren't big action blockbusters. It's been a while since we"ve had something like that from hollywood.
Johnny Josefsen

@Johnathon Haney For some reason, I'm fine with this, but only because i have access to a venue. It's a much better experience these days, the audience has become annoying in the big cinemas, especially in horror movies. Last three horror movies i watched, people were talking between the scares, and not as a reaction to the horror, just everyday stuff to get through "the boring parts". But i do miss the day where a movie like the Usual Suspect could be the talk of the town. I don't see that happening as much anymore, atleast not as much as in the 90s.

@Johnny Josefsen As a mass audience thing, it's done. From here on out, it'll be venues like what you just described and outfits like Alamo Roadhouse.
Johnny Josefsen
Johnny Josefsen - 26 days ago
@Johnathon Haney Where i live we have a smaller cinema where you buy coffee instead of popcorn that shows all these smaller movies. I don't think it's going away, just moving into different venues. Incidentally this is also the only place Irishman is showing. But the place is usually crowded with people. I can't remember the last time i actually went to the regular cinema.
Johnathon Haney
Johnathon Haney - 26 days ago
This isn't a return. It's a last gasp. Places like Netflix, Apple TV and others will be showing such smaller films in future and they'll likely be from overseas. Scorcese's kind of film is over.

@Sinjin Smyth making judgements on a person's character based on their appearance is so last season..
