A Misunderstood Masterpiece
I love this movie so much that I saw it three times in the theaters and five times overall. For those giving the movie bad reviews, they've watched it wrong. They expected another Django or Basterds like movie Tarantino. This one is simply different. This is Tarantino paying tribute to filmmaking and the Late 60s lifestyle he grew up with.
Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) is washed up and out of his prime TV Western star with his long time stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt) try to fit in and adjust to a changing Hollywood amid the 1960s counterculture.
Dalton is the next door neighbor to the late Sharon Tate (Robbie) who he wishes to impress to save his career at its low point.
The first two hours is a slice of life for every character while paying homage to vintage filmmaking and the rapidly changing 1960s. The last 40 minutes is simply classic Tarantino.
All I have to say is get ready for a wild ride.
The Irishman (2019)
If Casino is the unofficial sequel to Goodfellas, The Irishman completes the trilogy
In my opinion, this movie absolutely lives up to the hype as one of the last mobster epics of a dying genre.
Based on the bestselling book "I Heard You Paint Houses", this tells the tales and stories witnessed firsthand by Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran (De Niro) who was rumored to be a mob enforcer that went from truck driving to a mob hitman to later being Jimmy Hoffa's (Pacino) bodyguard and right hand man. Frank eventually meets Pennsylvania mob boss Russell Bufalino (Pesci) who becomes his closest friend in the mob and helps gets his start in doing mob work.
The movie includes a Goodfellas like timeline that spans from the 1950s to the 1970s and features Frank's stories of his involvement in The Bay of Pigs In 1961 to Jimmy Hoffa's disappearance in 1975.
The movie's runtime might be too long but it is certainly worth the hype and the long length.
