Caswell says:
If one is honest, Scorsese is the ultimate narcissistic (and safe) moviemaker. His top three movies are variations of his first independent film "Mean Streets".

"Raging Bull",...
"Goodfellas",..
and "Casino",..

all similar stereotypical Italian "mobsters" with comparable casting. (DeNiro and Pesci seem to be the "Martin and Lewis" of the underworld.)

When he worked outside of his safe commercial bubble and did other people's scripts, he came out with interesting original work like "Taxi Driver", "The King of Comedy" and "After Hours".

His big budget opus' have - IMO - been almost unwatchable yet he seems beyond critical approach based on his past successes.

"Gangs of New York", "The Aviator", "Shutter Island" and "The Departed" are like those ol' 50's star vehicles for teen heart throbs but instead of Troy Donahue we now have DiCaprio who is embarrassing in his earnestness. (Seriously - has this kid done anything convincing since "What's eating Gilbert Grape?" Re-watch "Titanic" tonight - it's like a bad "after school" special.)

"The Last temptation of Christ" - weird casting of Willem Dafoe as Christ. (What's next - Regis Philbin as Hannibal Lector.)

"Bringing out the Dead"? Great subject so how could it go so far off the reality plane and become forgettable as you're watching it?

"Hugo" is a confused hodgepodge of two movies with neither one related. First half; a Pinnochio tale of orphan in search of belonging,..2nd half; a biography of Lumiere. What exactly was the connection?

IMO Marty has his place in film history with Welles, Kubrick, and Lean with his masterpiece "Raging Bull". Once he went "Hollywood" and started listening to market researchers, demography and "focus groups", he lost his edge as an artist and is a Disney salesman.

Cassie: ''blah, blah, blah! I hate everything good and wholesome in this world, and any movie that I hate is because it's commercial, and the filmmaker's a capitalist pig, and because I don't understand them, they're painfully inferior to my own Kermit the Frog sketches on YouTube!''

In all seriousness, I will at least admit that Gangs of New York, Bringing Out the Dead and The Departed weren't all that's cracked up to be (I'd make the case that Gangs is his single worst movie). I haven't seen Shutter Island yet, but The Aviator seems to be criminally underrated here on these forums (not my pick for Best Picture of 2004, but it's good). And I have no desire to ever see The Last Temptation of Christ (consider the contents rather disagreeable).

The rest of the films you've mentioned? Casino and Taxi Driver were all good, but I find the latter somewhat overrated. Mean Streets is very good, and Raging Bull, Goodfellas, King of Comedy, After Hours, and Hugo, however, make his top 5 greatest achievements of his career. Raging Bull and Goodfellas were both robbed of their Best Picture Oscars (though the film Raging Bulls lost to--Ordinary People--is quite good for a film about suicide); and in most other years, I'd give KoC, After Hours and Hugo the award; KoC is second to The Right Stuff, After Hours is drowned out by quality works like Ran, Brazil and Back to the Future for BP (prepare for Cassie rage), and Hugo is on par and is debatable in a competition between it and Midnight in Paris.

In all seriousness though, if you're going to go to these game threads, how about--you know, participating in the polls? If all you've got to do is complain over the results, then why are you here? Either participate so that you'd have the right to complain (or not, depending on whether or not you get your way), or go away! If anything, you have no right to talk if you aren't doing anything about it.

But hey? Four poor films out of 14 ain't a bad comparison. I'd also throw in Boxcar Bertha and Kundun into that small pile of lackluster turds, though Gangs of New York is beyond idiotic.

Caswell,

I hate being honest; it takes so much time and effort.

I was hoping to say, "For Miss Caswell, it's back to the Copacabana School of Criticism" for it would have been a fun cinematic reference which I would have enjoyed for the whole day. Unfortunately, I can't say that because I did appreciate and agree with your post.

I was a fan, sure. There was a time when I looked forward to the next Scorsese film. Those dreams have faded; that time has passed. When Scorsese and DiCaprio were secretly married, I had to admit to myself that I was through. (Casting little Lenny DiCaprio as Howard Hughes was the worst casting choice since John Wayne was given the title role in "The Story of Fanny Brice.")

I have to disagree with Gordo (just slightly, of course) about Caswell's contribution. This is, after all, a thread about Martin Scorsese. I don't think a non-game contribution once in a while is all that detrimental to the game. We already know the outcome, we know the winner. The game, since the departure of Jonathan Baker, has become a little bit stale so the addition of some new blood from time to time won't do any harm and might even liven things up a bit.

That's my Sunday afternoon thought. Who knows how we'll feel on Monday.

Ashamed to admit there are movies on this list
I haven't seen that I should.
Must remedy that.
Even if I end up unimpressed,
at least I'll know one way or the other.
