    Yeah, that's a pretty good trilogy (haven't seen Eq3 yet). Good that there's new DeNiros, because I won't watch anything more from that over-the-line woke fuck anymore. My wife was trying to get me to see Killers of the Flower Moon, which I intended to until I noticed that he's in it. So I got the book instead.

    Yeah, he's a douche and a hypocrite. But I'll watch his old stuff. Saw Raging Bull again over Christmas. Good Lord but that's an incredible flick.

    Just to add some context to my last post, it's not so much that I disagree with the stances that he takes, which I do. It's not even that I dislike when people try to use their celebrity status to influence my thinking, which I hate vehemently. It's mostly because when I go to watch a movie, I need to be able to fully buy into the notion that for those 2-3 hours, the actor is the character in the role that he's playing. For me, the best movies are actually ones where the main actors are anonymous to me. Of course there's loss of anonymity as they become more successful, but I can for the most part buy into Hanks' and Denzel's characters, for example, because they've relatively stayed out of controversial situations when not playing a role. But then you have someone like Tom Cruise, where I can't watch any of his characters without thinking of him jumping on Oprah's couch or taking on Brooke Shields or other stuff. Or Alec Baldwin without thinking of him being an asshole to the flight attendant or Russell Crowe in that hotel lobby, and so on. With these actors who've undermined their ability to get me to believe that they're the character on the screen, it's not even worth my time and money watching. And DeNiro is probably the biggest culprit of that.

    Both well said, in distinct ways ...

    One actor I love is Phoebe Cates. She exits a pool like a boss, and when she left acting, she admitted she hated it, did it all for the money, and is still married to Kevin Kline because she spent the last 25 years raising her kids.

    Now ... anybody got a Kleenex? And does anybody KNOCK anymore?

    Indeed.
    A very. very long stretch...even the " mob" was laughable.
    Kinda reminded me of Steven Seagal kicking everyone's ass and he could barely lift his leg up.
    Kicked Kelly LeBrock's ass though...

    The dude is a cKunt. Once, I served him with legal documents and he chased me down PCH in a Ferrari that sounded like he never took it out of second gear. I even slowed down so he could yell at me thru the window and laughed in his face, then took off again! My buddy used to do unit production for the Larry King Show and he told me that when Steven Seagal was a guest he demanded they change the lighting so the glare wouldn't capture his obvious hair plugs on camera.

    It boggles the mind...can you imagine being married to LeBrock and the only thing you can think to do with her is cuff her around ?
    I saw an interview with her some years ago, and she said he hit her so many times in the side of the head, he made her deaf in one ear.

    Rogan has a take on this. He asserts that once, Seagal was a legit aikido master. But once he had a few movies hit, he let it go to his head and his ass. His weight became a problem & his a attitude went to shit. Now
    .. it's all but certain that the guy is mentally ill.

    Just a thought...

    All I hear on the interwebz is that Killers of the Flower Moon is the greatest film.since Gone with the Wind.

    So why do I get the feeling that it's a piece of shit?

    Probably mentioned already but ...

    Just re-watched Hell or High Water after about two years. That movie only gets better each watch. Taylor Sheridan knows how to write.
