    This was VERY sweet, and the animation was lovely. And that’s all you can really want in a movie like this.

    My favorite part was when Joe Pesci gives Robert De Niro a golden BFF’s ring that I firmly believe was not part of the movie, but actually happened on set as Joe, Bob and Marty are best friends forever.

    Christoph Waltz gleefully tearing through his scenes and dialogue is something to behold. Everyone knew he was getting an Oscar that year. It wasn’t even close.

    Your dreams are screwing up the rest of my life!


    I’m in the theater right now and HOLY SHIT is the camera work in this film HORRENDOUS. It’s either wild sweeping, sickening, spinning close ups or wide, static nothing shots. 

    The dialogue? It’s so strained and brittle, it’s liable to snap at any point.

    The characters? Stale, and one dimensional. 

    Not even half-way through and I wish I could leave but what else would I do? All my friends are on trips this weekend.
