    I know, I'm getting excited about it.
    I hope since it's your birthday Jayson, you'll be able to make an exception and head out to the theater to see it.

    I saw the trailer at the theater tonight. Looks like it will be pretty bad ass but it is definitely not going to be one that I am going to be able to drag my wife to. It looks like it is going to be gory.

    I've never missed a Tarantino movie in the theater and I don't plan to start now.

    Yeah, unless DeNiro is playing a crazy guy or a mobster his skills are virtually nilch. At least use a good example like Kevin Spacey, a guy with some range.

    Have not seen Reign Over Me or Punch Drunk Love? Love to see DeNiro even try a role like that lol
    Deniro has no range outside his mobster skills, haha what an ignorant statement,

    I know I'm beginning to get really anxious as well. I wish it was coming out sooner.

    And here's the other two posters that are out now for those that are curious.

    I've already told my friend that what I want for my birthday is for her to babysit Ella so we can go to the theatre to see the movie.

    See, this is the problem I have with Deniro. Instead of preserving his legacy as a brilliant actor, he chooses to accept any role, no matter how demeaning. I'm not saying he can't do comedy well-in fact, Midnight Run is probably one of my favorite movies, which is not something you would normally hear me say about a film starring Charles Grodin-but there has to be a limit to what you'll tolerate.

    It's like Michael Caine. Do people think of him as a distinguished actor any longer? No, they think of him as an actor who's notorious for accepting any crap role for which he can get garner a seven figure salary.

    Deniro's skills are nilch??? He has no range? Did I just walk into backwards world?

    Dude, he has a pretty wide range as an actor. Look at that list in the quote above. I admit that he's done some shitty movies in his time too, most actors do. But I think the guy maybe got tired of the serious drama and decided to try new genres. He already made his mark in film, he's getting older, he wants to do something a little lighter, who knows. I thought he was hilarious in meet the fockers. and i cried like a little jerk for his character in awakenings. he also doesn't get enough props for his role in The Fan. May seem like a ridiculous movie at first, but i think it's a pretty solid flick, and deniro (although playing crazy again) kind of makes you hate him/fear him/sympathize with him throughout.

    Adam Sandler? I thought his role in punch drunk love was strange and weak and unlike anything he's done before. And i really dug that, but there were times where he almost fell back into his angry happy gilmore voice, and it almost became comical. i never saw reign over me, but i'm sure he's alright in it.

    And please, I can't let this one go. You don't really believe there's a role out there that adam sandler could pull off, but too much of an acting obstacle for Robert Deniro? That was a joke, right? I'm almost sure that was a joke, but it's hard to tell with this internet thing.


    The Michael Cain thing is a bit similar. these guys have all done academy award work. why not do some stupid movies once in a while. what does it matter to them? They succeeded in their craft and now it's time to fuck around a bit. I don't blame them at all. As far as recent movies, Michael Cain was great in Children of Men. And eventhough it was silly, i enjoyed him in Austin Powers 3.

    that's how i feels.

    I honestly cannot believe that anyone would seriously try to argue that Adam Sandler has more depth than DiNero. I really dont think that I can even debate with someone of that opinion. I like Adam Sandler, but he will always be the Waterboy/Happy Gilmore/Billy Madison/the Wedding Singer. Is there any actor out their that is as one-faceted as Sandler?
    Sandler is just beginning to take on serious roles, and has yet to prove himself IMO. Click wasnt bad, Reign Over Me wasnt terrible, but Punch Drunk Love was a two hours of my life I will never get back. And Spanglish sucked balls
    Anyway, Since this is a thread about Quetin Tarentino's new movie, this is my last comment about this here.
    If you want to open a DeNiro vs Sandler thread, I will post there, along with a few other people I would expect.

    I actually thought Caine was the one and only good thing in that film. I thought I'd like that film but I hated it, though I thought Caine's performance was great and reminded me about why I love Michael Caine.

    I also agree completely with the rest of what you said Mike, except that I didn't really like The Fan (though DeNiro was very good).

    They could both do nothing but crap for the rest of the careers and it may cause me to question why they take some roles but it will never lessen the great performances they've already given or cause me to question their abilities. No amount of stupid roles will make me forget DeNiro in The King of Comedy.

    hahahaha......yeah I guess that was a redeeming value in the movie.
    I remember seeing the previews and thinking that it was going to be good.
    Then I saw it and was quite dissapointed, especially with the end.

    It was one of those times that the end comes and I was like "What, this cant be the end"
    But it was, and I went to sleep confused.

    Indeed. When I got home from the movie I packed a bowl and wished Michael Caine was there to smoke with me.

    In my case I had read the book first and thought well this will make a good movie. I really should remember I rarely like adaptations and this was a good example of why.

    It was written by P. D. James. I thought it was very good, much better than the film which changed a lot from the book.
