    Can I ask why you say no to The Irishman without ruining it. I was considering it.

    Thank you for the replies so far. I am looking up most of them and reading a very general plot for those of you that didn't include a description. A few have intrigued me.

    If it must be in English: The Irishman surprised me by how good it was, despite the duration of the story. That said, dare to be different. Look to the Chinese: Infernal Affairs I & II:





    Long Days Journey into Night:



    or, from Korea, A Bitter Sweet Life:

    I have read a lot of reviews on the Irishman lately and it is really split on like and dislike. My wife and I watched it last weekend and we both really liked it...me a bit more than her. Many of the reviews from people who didn’t care for it said that it’s too long and too slow, but the acting is great. I for one don’t believe that a movie needs explosions and car chases to be good. Watch it and let the story unfold, that’s what it is, it’s a story. The Godfather was another movie that was just a great story. I remember my boys and I are watching it together when they were younger and they both said this is so boring nothing is happening. It’s a story *****! The other cool thing about the Irishman is the digital aging and dealing of the characters, that stuff amazes me. Best regards and enjoy your movie.

    Greetings from Utah. For one now in theaters: “Knives Out,” especially if you like Daniel Craig.

    Yes, I thought "Well, Scorsese made his movie again." There were scenes where DeNiro and Pesci should have been played by younger actors because a nearly 80 year old man doesn't convincingly play a man who would be in his late 20s or early 30s. You can stack a movie with DeNiro and Pesci (both of who I love), Keitel, Pacino and it doesn't necessarily make it a good movie. It takes more than that. I'll leave it there. You may watch the same movie and think it's a masterpiece.

    I've never seen The Gangs of New York, but I've always been curious. It's available to stream on Netflix right now.

    It's a gangster movie based on a true story starring Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe, and Josh Brolin.
