    I liked the beginning of Captain america, and the end was alright, but the middle was just a shitty episode of G.I.Joe.

    Thor was mostly just alright, but most of the characters were fun.

    I was kinda half watching 'F for Fake' while dicking around on the computer and all I got out of it is that Maurice LaMarche's Orson Welles impression kinda sucks, and Jonathan Frakes could totally play an old Orson Welles if somebody ever made a movie about an old Orson Welles.

    Watched 'From Beyond'. Quite liked it; It's typical 80's latex horror meets Lovecraft, and fleshed out a bit. I liked the creature designs and the stuff they added to do with the pineal gland, and it generally felt like a really good up-to-date adaptation of the source material.

    I always thought his William Shatner impression was pretty bad, too.

    So The Wolf of Wall Street is probably my favorite Scorsese film ever. I'll have to re-watch Raging Bull sometime(my former favorite), but damn, Wolf is incredible.

    Leo's physical performance alone is legendary.

    Implying that Goodfellas ain't the true magnum opus.

    Before raging bull was number 1 and goodfellas was number 2. I'll have to re-watch Wolf ASAP, but where ever it ranks it was still one of the greatest films I've ever seen.

    I've never laughed so much in a Scorsese film, he really turned up his dark comedy to the max, and dat social commentary.

    Every mainstream person's Shatner impression is bad. They all just ape each other, not Shatner himself. Nobody even tries.

    The Departed is still my favorite of his films but I do wanna see Wolf pretty bad.

    The Departed is excellent as well. Scorsese is the greatest American director alive right now imo

    It just now died for you? It died for me after the first trailer.

    Considering RoboCop's downfall into shit started once they started making it PG-13 it doesn't surprise me that this reboot shitfest is going to be PG-13 also.

    I like Scorsese, but I do find some of his stuff a tad overrated (IMO, of course). I watched Goodfellas not long after watching The Godfather I and II, and didn't think it was anywhere near the same calibur of Gangster movie. He gets good performances in his films, but sometimes I feel like there's not that much necessarily behind the acting. But horses for courses, maybe I'm just missing subtext.

    Same here. I laughed throughout the whole damn flick. Also, he actually got Jonah Hill to play someone other than Jonah Hill. Fucking amazing. Love that whole flick. Also Goodfellas is fantastic and I like it more than Godfather 2 and 3, but about equal with the 1st.

    You know, even if I did agree with you that Goodfellas wasn't as good as The Godfather, that still wouldn't change the fact that Francis Ford Coppola has been a pretty mediocre director for a very long time now, whereas Scorsese is releasing excellent films consistently. It's not just that the have good performances, it's that his directing style is amazing. Haven't you noticed how all of his films are filled with amazing shots?

    The Godfather is a masterpiece, and so is Goodfellas. The Godfather is one of the quintessential "classic" gangster films where it's all operatic and shit, but Goodfellas offered a much more realistic portrayal and also managed to have a more satisfying and full arc for it's main character than The Godfather trilogy had for it's main character.

    Jonah Hill's performance is incredible and so is Leo's. I literally have been thinking about it since I saw it. Can't wait till I can watch it again.

    On the opposite end of the spectrum, I just watched Hell Comes to Frogtown for the very first time, having only discovered its existence last night. Roddy Piper stars as a dude name Sam Hell living in a post-apocalyptic U.S. who, as one of the very few remaining non-sterile men, must rescue and impregnate some of the few remaining fertile women. Said women have been taken prisoner by some mutant amphibian people that live in place called Frogtown in a reservation made just for such mutants.

    It's like Children of Men meets a Troma flick with a small dash of Fallout thrown in. It also kinda reminds me of A Boy and His Dog for reasons that are obvious if you've ever seen A Boy and His Dog. Anyways, Hell Comes to Frogtown is a cool piece of schlock from the '80s.
