A thoroughly unlikable main character with a predictable end, genuinely un-fun and paceless. Joaquin going all in on something not worth going all in on.

Tell me im wrong?

I thought Joaquin was good but I don't think the entire movie was anything special. Was a bit surprised how average it was after all the hype.

Probably hit the mark with a lot of people due to the poignant and very relevant real-life social commentary - less fortunate people being left by the wayside, the super rich getting richer, lack of mental health support, etc.

Everything is hyped up now-a-days, probably to get bums on seats in cinema's, more often than not it turns out to be an average affair

The Irishman. Long but worth it and amazing to see Pesci back on the screen. Can't believe how Scorsese still manages to keep the quality so high. He's well into his 70s now

Laughing out loud Reviews mean nothing to MoB where George Michael's concerned.

Watched last night and loved this. I loved the dark comedy aspects, reminded me a bit of The Wailing from a few years ago which I also loved
