    That movie was a slow burn. Martin could have used an editor or two. I enjoyed it quite a bit but it was 60 minutes too long. Also, the denouement was pretty weak.

    Yup it’s worth watching but I definitely agree they could have cut an hour out of the movie.

    I'm just glad that I was able to watch it at home instead of in a theater. That way I could take several intermissions.

    I watched over two days. Might be why I enjoyed it still. That in a theater would have been hard.

    I enjoyed the slow burn of the movie. It had a nice buildup to when he “allegedly” popped Hoffa..

    His story seems compelling and simplistic.

    I read all about others who refute his story but that is part of the whole mystery around Hoffa’s death/disappearance. If it is done right, we will never know and if he was in fact a hit man for Hoffa and the mob, to go unnoticed until his book was released after his death is equally telling that his story could be true..

    I saw this in the theatre-- straight shot of 3.5 hours. A pretty easy watch when it's in a dark theatre and has your undivided attention. I don't know if I could do it at home with the distraction of my phone, etc.

    Saw everything but the denouement which, thanks to dabrockster, I don't need to watch anymore.

    This is Martin Scorsese not at his best. No innovation in filmmaking. No new ideas. No new devices to rachett up the onscreen tension. The same old two-characters-sitting-in-front-of-a-window-with-outside-scenery-getting-larger. The same apology to the capo in the form of a hit. The same messy assassination in the italian restaurant. The only thing I thought was interesting and new was Joe Pesci's character trying to buy the loyalty of the Irishman's daughter as she grows. His paranoia leading him to watch everyone, even a 6 year old girl.

    The other thing that struck me was that Scorsese used to film his actors as they currently appeared, and then age them with makeup for flash forwards n the future. In this movie he had to film them as old men, and de-age them for scenes in their youth.

    Giri/Haji is really good. A crime drama based in London and Tokyo. A Japanese detective has to go to London to track down his gangster brother. Really artistic, lots of subtitles and subplots, unique filming with a little anime. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

    What's the content like? Reviews seem very favorable; surprised it hasn't had more press.

    It is for mature audiences: it takes place mostly in London, so fair share of F-bombs, a couple quick sex scenes, a few shootouts, drug use, some cutting off of fingers (Japanese mafia atonement), etc. the finger cutting was the only thing that I thought was a little too graphic. I really enjoyed the use of sound, good music (Japanese and English) in parts that are supported by silence in other parts. The climax/ending was a little strange since it included an interpretive dance routine.

    Thanks for the heads up. I will check it out. I watch a lot of japanese programming on netflix.

    BTW, don't waste your time with The Outsider - netflix movie about an american guy who joins the yakuza. Absolutely horrible.

    For a moment I thought you were talking about the upcoming HBO series The Outsider about a child murder in the U.S. and I thought "the yakuza?!?"

    That is the Stephen King adaption. It will probably suck even though the book was pretty good.

    Did anyone watch Messiah? Despite garnering a lousy 41% on RT (7.9 on IMDB), I found it mildly entertaining, if a bit ponderous at times. The eponymous character is a mysterious character who many in the Middle East and the U.S. believe may be THE Messiah, but the CIA and others think he's at least a fraud, and possibly a terrorist. One element I found amusing was that the show's POTUS, who wonders if the mystery man is the real deal, turns out to be LDS. The implication is that because of POTUS's belief in things like angels and golden plates (specifically mentioned), he's more inclined to believe the guy. I would think an LDS POTUS would be far less likely to believe such a thing, unless RMN had tipped him off that the guy was legit...

    POTUS's name is President Young, btw.

    It raises interesting questions about belief. BTW, the POTUS element of the story is a very minor one, and I don't think he appears until episode 8 or so.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I skipped it assuming it was probably some lame modern version of the gospels. In fact, I very much like it.

    First episode of Little America, free on AppleTV. This show purports to be true stories of indian immigrants in America. The first one is about a 12-year old indian boy, who helps his parents to run a motel in Green River, UT. They get called back to India, leave the kid in the care of an "uncle" who soon deserts the kid. The 12-year old ends up running the motel for years until his parent successfully return with their US visa. The kid is now about 20.

    Not sure what the standard is here, but I'd say "probably." There's a little rough language, and one brief sex scene, but Mrs. PAC wasn't bothered. The series is produced by Christian TV moguls Mark Burnett and Roma Downey.
