Wow, this is a sleeper for sure. If history repeats itself, this should be yet another epic mobster flick from Scorsese and co.

Wow, the potential here is obviously great, but given all the variables around the budget and the cast, which are, let's be honest here, a few years past prime, this kinda makes me nervous. That's a silly thing to say, but as a fan of "movie magic" I really want this to be amazing. I hope Scorcese pulls it off because if he does, this could be epic.

I don’t know. I think I’m going to have hard time separating DeNiro's wise guy movie rants from his political real life ones. Plus we’ve seen this before with pretty much the same actors. Seems like Joe Pesci will be Joe Pesci from a previous role. If it wasn’t for DeNiro I could see SNL doing parodies of this for awhile. Hope it’s as good as its potential. I’ll definitely see it.

Yeah, I feel similarly about James Woods and Rosanne Barr.

I'm a little confused by this. Are you saying SNL wouldn't parody this because De Niro is in it? I'm not sure a parody of something like this is really in their wheelhouse, but if they can write a funny sketch about it, I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see De Niro parody himself. He seems to have a pretty healthy sense of humor despite being a fairly serious guy.

Woods and Barr haven’t worked for awhile so you have less exposure. Never a fan of Barr's so no worries there. Liked Woods, was never aware of his politics until recently, which might not be why he’s not working though. Maybe Jon Voight might be a better example? But I don’t see Micky's character when Jon is discussing his political views. Separating the actor from their personal views (whatever they may be) usually isn’t an issue for me. Sometimes I just grow tired of them for whatever reason and no longer see the character they play.

I think mafia/wise guy movies are getting close to shark territory and this one might be really good or become a parody of those movies. It has all these aging incredible people going at it one last time. So I could see SNL doing a parody of it it. But I don’t think so. I think their political stance is well known and coincides with DeNiro's. I don’t think they would go against their's or DeNiro's leanings for laughs, since the funny (to me) lies in the fact DeNiro's rants and characters are very similar.

I don’t mean for this to be political. If DeNiro was as outspoken, and sort of in character, about being a vegan, or about meat eaters, I would feel the same. The overlap just happens to be political in DeNiro’s case. I still like Tom Cruise movies. Some people can’t get past his beliefs, one day if he decides to advocate aggressively in his underwear I would probably move on.

Anyway, was trying to stay neutral and it’s just coincidental for me that DeNiro's rants are what they are.

Hope the movie is really good.

Once upon a time, these things were floating around like, "We should be labeling all GMOs!" and I was like, "Yeah, we should!" Then you do a little reading and learn about how beneficial GMOs have been to fighting world hunger and how common they are and how the widely available stuff has been around for decades and is not harmful at all, and you're more like, "huh, GMOs aren't bad." Onwards and upwards!

In general, I don't bemoan celebrities for speaking their minds about stuff. To me, it all hinges on their ability to defend their positions with facts and information, as is true with anybody. Also, I think it's good when they use their influence to actually do good like registering people to vote or making people more aware of an issue, etc. It's obviously a fine line, but they just have to be prepared to defend their position.

I go out of my way to buy non GMO, but it's not about whether they're good or not. It's about the nasty business practices re Monsanto.

Fair, but that has more to do with ethics than science. The motivation is key. For example, I work with a guy whose dad is the preeminent potato scientist in the country. It's just a matter of making sure the debate is grounded in facts and not fear tactics (on both sides).

This is 2019. Fear tactics are yesterday's science. It's very sad.

I believe that 'someone' is his wife. They have a son with autism and she's convinced that the vaccines gave it to him.

I read the book. DeNiro is definitely the wrong guy for this role. Wrong size, personality, age, ethnicity and look. The Irishman (Frank Sheeran) was not your typical DeNiro stereotype mobster.

Awesome book. I'll wait for the opinion of those who've read it to see if DeNiro ruined the movie.

Quote:
1/13: 13 Tweets about Scorsese's The Irishman: First- the film connects with the epitaph-like nature of Barry Lyndon. It is about lives that came and went, with all their turmoil, all their drama and violence and noise and loss… and how they invariably fade, like we all do…

2/13 “It was in the reign of George III that the aforesaid personages lived and quarrelled; good or bad, handsome or ugly, rich or poor, they are all equal now." We will all be betrayed and revealed by time, humbled by our bodies, stripped off our pride.

3/13 The film is a mausoleum of myths: a Funereal monument that stands to crush the bones beneath it. Granite is meant to last but we still turn to dust inside it.

4/13 It’s the anti”My Way” (played in every gangster wedding in the world). Regrets they had more than few. The road cannot be undone and we all face the balance at the end. Even the voice over recourse has DeNiro trailing off into mumbled nonsense-

5/13 I remember, in a documentary about Rick Rubin- he explained how Johnny Cash singing “Hurt” (having lived and lost and gone to hell and back) gave it a dimension it could not have in the voice of a -then- young Trent Reznor (even if he composed it). This film is like that.

6/13 Scorsese started hand-in-hand with Schrader, as young men, looking for Bresson. This movie transmogrified all the gangster myths into regret. You live this movie. It never goes for the sexy of violence. Never for the spectacle. And yet it is spectacularly cinematic.

7/13 Film has the inexorabie feeling of a crucifixion- from the point of view of Judas. Every Station of the cross permeated by humor and a sense of banality- futility- characters are introduced with their pop-up epitaphs superimposed on screen: “This is how they die”

8/13 I never thought I would see a film in which I’d root hard for Jimmy Hoffa- but I did- perhaps because, in the end, he, much like the Kennedys, represented also the end of a majestic post-war stature in America.

9/13 Pesci supremely minimalistic. Masterful. He is like a black hole- an attractor of planets- dark matter. DeNiro has always fascinated me when he plays characters that are punching above their true weight - or intelligence- That’s why I love him in so much Jackie Brown-

10/13 An interesting transfer between these characters: Pesci- who has played the Machiavellian monster, regains a senile innocence, a benign oblivion and De Niro’s character - who hass operated in a moral blank- gains enough awareness - to feel bitter loneliness.

11/13 I believe that much is gained if we cross-reference our transgressions with how we will feel in the last three minutes of our life- when it all becomes clear: or betrayals, our saving graces and our ultimate insignificance. This film gave me that feeling.

12/13 This film needs time- however- it has to be processed like a real mourning. It will come up in stages… I believe most of its power will sink in, in time, and provoke a true realization. A masterpiece. The perfect corollary Goodfellas and Casino.

13/13 See it. In a theatre. This movie languished in development in studio vaults for so long… having it here, now, is a miracle. And, btw- fastest 3 hours in a cinema. Do not miss it.

I agree about science and the importance of facts. That said I also believe that something should be proven safe before mass adoption. Unfortunately there’s really no way of knowing that GMO’s are safe until a study’s been conducted over a large period of time with a large group of subjects. NutraSweet and Aspartame have been shown to increase risks of cancer. Yet they were approved with bogus scientific testing that contradicted most of the scientific communities warnings. BPA is another example. As the evidence continues to stack the companies simply lobby against the science to buy time. Then alter just a few molecules and call it BPS. For all intensive purposes BPA and BPS are the same. We’ll have to be poisoned for another 10-20 years before we start seeing “BPS-Free” containers being sold. GMO’s will never allow their trillion dollar industry to be shut down and will always have a dozen “scientific” studies contradicting the honest ones. Monsanto has funded the University’s that taught this generation of bio engineers. Not to mention GMO foods are created to be resistant to pesticides that are proven to be harmful. So even if the the modification itself isn’t more harmful, the subsequent crops certainly are.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspartame_controversy

https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2018...nsumer-plastic

And BTW I do believe in vaccines and that our world is round. That said, I’ll stay away from GMO’s for another decade or so.

Back to the “Irishman” I’ve heard it’s great, can’t wait to see it!

I also think it's important to mention that GMO covers a wide range of things. Few modern crops are exactly as they were when first discovered.

The link wasn’t working for me, nevertheless I agree with what you said. Hybridization is possibly not good either. Foods bred to last longer or look nicer aren’t necessarily the most nutrient. That’s why a lot of people (myself included) chose ancient grains or heirloom variety produce, livestock when possible. Reading my own words just made even me think: “what a yuppie Californian” lol

Thanks. A similar piece from Forbes.

"‘The Irishman’ Was An Offer Hollywood Had To Refuse (And Only Netflix Could Accept)"

Quote:
I have no skin in the game, but I will admit that I will laugh just a little bit if The Irishman isn't quite as good as Joker. There is not and never was a logical scenario for a $160 million period-piece organized crime melodrama starring De Niro, Pacino, Pesci and Keitel to make its money back in any traditional model.

The ball was dropped, Marty. Ray Liotta should've been in this film, not Romano.

Tack likes this.
