any film that is more than two hours long could lose at least an hour. just pointless. 

Yeah I agree, there's few that warrant it but you'd think with a cast like that and Scorsese at the wheel that it would be a lot better. It is ashame because I proper wanted to love it as well

biggest one in the way too long films category is wolf of wall street. that could’ve been over and done with in about 45 minutes.

Honestly a great film that gets the balance between murder mystery and comedy spot on

I love the "Beige Volvo" trilogy of Con Air, Face/Off and The Rock. But yes, he's basically done a load of shit since 2014.

 

For me,  it has even got to the stage when I honestly think Cage is just trolling us all with his film choices.

Joker is great. Top class acting and incredible character development. However If you’re the type that attends protests, it is probably not for you

Just finished The Irishman - absolutely outstanding. Storyline, soundtrack, the cast just incredible. 

 

Knowledge of the 60's political climate necessary but up there the other mafia classics.

 

He did well to get it all into three and a half hours.

Tempted to treat it like a mini series and do one 5 minute episode a night.

lol

 

I'm the opposite of @ScouseFox - nothing better than seeing a really long movie in the warmth, lights out with a bottle of something to keep you company, just doesn't feel the same watching a film in parts.

 

I think the full edit of One Upon a Time in America (another De Niro classic btw) was about 8 hours before being cut to 4 1/2 - I would love to have tried the former.

I'm terrible watching films in the comfort of my own home. Too many distractions, too easy to pause and go to the loo. I'd much rather be in a cinema where I have to manage my own bladder and behave in a dark room full of strangers.

Glass, bottle of whisky, tub of ice. Nothing else. No need for the toilet.

 

Which remind me, the watermelon scene in the Irishman. lol

I watched that again last weekend. It's always a bit difficult to find a 5 hour window of opportunity, so it's been a while.

 

I was reading a few reviews & stuff. I never knew that it flopped in the USA. Like you said, Leone wanted an even longer version than what was eventually released (in Europe). Because the studio didn't think US audiences could handle going without food for 4 & a half hours, it was shortened to a little over 2 hours. As bad as that is, it was edited so that the scenes were in chronological order. Mental

So went to see Knives Out. Best film I've seen this year I reckon. 10/10

Glad you enjoyed it.

 

I was dragged to Frozen 2 by my little nephew today and even forced to like it (I definitely didn’t drag him along so I didn’t look like a paedo).

I must see this:

 

 

 

I love Ryan Reynolds but I was very sceptical for the first 2 minutes.

 

Until Taika Waititi.

 

Now you have my attention.

Looks quite fun. I wonder if the 80s theme was always the plan or did the popularity of Stranger Things play a role.
