    Titanic

    ★★★★

    Kind of a Hitchcock with Psycho-type situation. Just as the many slashers that have followed that mother of a flick have rarely (if ever) been able to be on that level, ditto with the heap of romantic drivel that set sail after what is still the “King of the World.” And approaching its 25th birthday no less. An iceberg filled with Blue dudes and avenging heroes may have sunken this ship some in the hearts of others, but mine will…

    As far back as I can remember I've always confused this with A Bronx Tale.

    Not hard to see why. And now having actually seen both it still isn't.

    DiCaprio vs. DeNiro. Scorsese's two most frequent movie star collaborators (who will finally be together with him in his next,) duking it out.

    ★★½

    Could say more (a lot more,) but since I went to an advanced screening, I'll keep it blunt, but to the point.

    When adding new characters to play around with the old beloved familiar faves, a general rule of thumb is to have em be about as interesting and fun. Not appear to be rejects from that crappy-looking TV adaptation.

    The kills were mostly pretty brutal at least.

    Whatever. I'll take solace in the fact that if it really wasn't…
