As slight as a movie could probably be, but perhaps the most successful feature-length experiment for Aardman in terms of not losing their clever humor in order to craft a long-form narrative. It still feels like it stretches in the third act, but the lead-up is as solid as anything the studio has done before. The only aberration is the sometimes ghastly use of pop music.
Just another movie about the mob. Is Scorsese the most overrated director ever? I'm starting to think he might be. De Niro and Pesci are pretty good, and there are some fun sequences, but is there any point in this movie that wasn't made before, or hasn't been made better since?
It's so frustrating the way Don Rickles is underused.
The best '95 movie about Las Vegas is obviously Showgirls.
Very ambitious, but overlong and not as deep as it considers itself to be. Is it just me or 140 minutes is way too much for what this film wanted to say? Also, couldn't they devote some of that time to character development?
