    It was okay but massively over-hyped.

    It’s very good. Bit ****ing long, the actors are a bit old. But it’s a good movie, much better than The Departed which was a bit **** imo.

    The family recipe scene in black mass is worth more than the whole 3 hours of the Irishman

    Have to disagree, Archie.

    It's not a very good movie. It's meh.

    De Niro is good in it because he's good at being De Niro.

    Pacino hams it up, as has been his wont over the last couple of decades.

    Pesci is good in it.

    Scorsese peaked with "Goodfellas" and he insists in still trying to remake it. "Casino" wasn't that good but still better than "The Irishman".

    PS "The Departed" is an underrated movie IMHO.

    Also seen "Joker". Brilliant. Going to watch it again because it's the type of movie where you can get more out of it in subsequent viewings, IMHO.

    Meh. Has it's moments, but overall, meh.

    american gangster was the last good movie made, the stuff being made now is utter ****e and most of it has some political agenda, the level of tv series has been far higher than any movies in the last decade

    Rarely bother with movies these days although honourable menshies for Zero Dark Thirty, Body of Lies and Sicario.

    Narcos was the dugs but a tv series.
