And I simply could not finish.  First of all, this is Goodfellas part V or VI, I am not sure which, but basically the franchise of the Italian mob movie with the same actors got old and lame. And about getting old is the next point I want to make.

No doubt about it, the Digital De-Aging process is a technological breakthrough  which I was amazed at how well it restored the faces.

But as i kept watching, something bothered me to no end. something simply did not match. It was the scene where Frank is beating the grocer that I realized what was bothering me: The face did not match the body language. Simply put, the face may have said 40 but the body moved like a 76 year old man moves: without much energy and movement no so ample as in afraid of being hurt.

After that realization, I could not concentrate in the movie’s plot but only in the mismatch of face and body language, so I ended my suffering.
Mind you, it may be a great flick, but even Rambo died and playing with digital botox will only take you so far.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. Rambo DIED?!? I know I’m way behind on my third-rate movie watching, and it doesn’t come as a shock, but thanks for the spoiler…

  2. Another Scorsese mob movie. Let me guess, at some point a Rolling Stones song is used in the soundtrack as well. I’ll pass, I just don’t care about this guy’s movie’s anymore.

  3. I tried to watch it but can’t stand Robert De Niro anymore. Dude’s turned into a grumpy old fart with a herniated testicle and a progtard broomstick up his ass.

      I can’t watch any movie with that asshole in it any longer, which is sad as there’s several older/classic ones I enjoyed with other primary actors in it.
