What's one actor you hated but then saw one movie and that changed your opinion of them? For me it's Leo Decaprio. I hated him but then I saw Gangs of New York and then changed my opinion of him.
Just some heads ups he's got some movies coming out.
This one with Russell Crowe Body of Lies (2008)
A former journalist injured in the Iraq war is hired by the CIA to track down an Al Qaeda leader in Jordan. Based on the novel "Body of Lies" by David Ignatius.
He's reunited with Kate Winslet in Revolutionary Road (2008)
A young couple living in a Connecticut suburb during the mid-1950s struggle to come to terms with their personal problems while trying to raise their two children. Based on a novel by Richard Yates.
Another Martin Scorsese movie Shutter Island (2009 Filming)
Drama is set in 1954, U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels is investigating the disappearance of a murderess who escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane and is presumed to be hiding on the remote Shutter Island.
Yet another Scorsese movie The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt (2009)
Leo is indeed Theo.
A look at the formative years of the 26th President of the United States, from his transformation from a privileged New York politician to commander of the Rough Riders during the Spanish-American War.
I've always been a big Leonardo DiCaprio fan. I think the only reason people hated him was because of his "teen idol" status. He's always been a great actor. My favorite movie of his will always be The Basketball Diaries.
Any reason or just not your thing? I can definitely see why some people wouldn't like it, but it was very interesting to me.
There was some good parts, but I can't really point out anything specific on why I didn't like in general, because I don't remember it completely well. I know I did not like the ending though, and I thought they could have made it better.
[i]Raging Bull[i] (Dir. Martin Scorsese) That was pretty amazing. It was amazing all around. The directing and cinematography was excellent along with great performances from everyone, especially De Niro. I loved it as a case study of men and their women and it was very interesting. Classic. 9.8
