Reckon this deserves it’s own thread. Out in UK cinemas tomorrow, on Netflix from the 27th. Scorcese’s been in the news a lot lately for slagging off Marvel. Haha, OK Boomer! (Obviously he is completely right).
In the meantime shall we have a poll?
Best Scorcese narrative film:
- Who’s That Knocking at My Door
- Boxcar Bertha
- Mean Streets
- Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore
- Taxi Driver
- New York, New York
- Raging Bull
- The King of Comedy
- After Hours
- The Color of Money
- The Last Temptation of Christ
- Cape Fear
- The Age of Innocence
- Brining Out the Dead
- Gangs of New York
- The Aviator
- The Departed
- Shutter Island
- The Wolf of Wall Street
Literally no chance I will watch this.
What business does Ray Romano have being in this film?
Just voted for the Departed but then remembered how closely it follows the source material. Pretty wild he got away with that.
I fucking love Shutter Island fwiw, criminally under-appreciated IMO
Watched Taxi Driver for the first time there a few days ago. It was fine.
I also enjoyed Shutter Island but I watched it in hospital when recovering from an operation and hadn’t shat for five days so I’ll always associate it with that in my mind unfortunately
I am starting a conversation with you!
Might I ask at which point you did manage to poo?
I completely forgot about Bringing Out The Dead. Was that Nicholas cage as an ambulance driver?
I quite fancy seeing Cape Fear again - my VHS copy came in a really nice box
Never loved Raging Bull but can appreciate it. Taxi Driver is his greatest film but would rather watch Goodfellas any day
I also like Shutter Island (well-executed fun film), even though I find Ruffalo really off-putting in everything.
Definitely an argument to be had for Hugo not existing
Yeah, Taxi Drivers amazing but Goodfellas is just so entertaining
I have seen 2 [two] Scoreseseese films, one I thought was ok [Taxi Driver] and the other was a flaming pile of crap [Wolf of Wall Street]
