You do realize he made goodfellas? Every director has a style, you can tell every tarintino, PTA, Kubrick, Refn, etc film, purely based on there style

He knows. He's calling it a rehash. I'd like to think Scorsese wouldn't do that, but I haven't seen it. Love to hear some input and comparisons by members who have seen both.

Sure the movie has the main characters narrating and talking to the camera, etc. It just feels like a early scorsesse movie, taxi driver, goodfellas, casino, raging bull, etc. Its not a rehash what so ever

i wined and dined some lady friends tonight

jk i just went out with my sisters and mother. saw the wolf of wall street and man can i tell you how fricked my senses are after 3 hours of drugs and bewbage

Spoiler!


haven't seen goodfellas, believe it or not, otherwise i'd be glad to compare. the movie was alright but like a 6/10 or so for me. it kind of dragged on with the length and how the ending played out. wouldn't say it was bad but it kind of left you feeling disinterested. heck of a ride tho

One of the main reasons I'm seeing the movie.

My problem with this movie was the characters. I mean, all of them just acted extremely irrationally and only had one characteristic. One of them was "the smart girl", one was "the alpha male" and whatever. Also, they tried to give some depth so some characters but
Spoiler!
I too liked the whole concept of it though, but if you want a movie on the same theme I'd recommend The Killing Room over Exam, even though Killing Room had a few problems aswell (mainly story-related, rather than acting/character-related).
