Gang's of New York

  1. It is a epic movie that will surely be nominated for many awards. Many will call it brilliant and I won't argue with them. However, I disliked it and I am sorry I saw it. It made me feel sick and depressed. Only thing I liked about it was Leonardo's hairstyle in the last 10 minutes of the movie. :stone

    I was wondering if anyone had seen this yet. I think I will save my money and wait until it comes out on DVD.

    I heard it was very violent. Did you think so? I have heard people say the same things you did. We went to see Catch Me If You Can today and loved it.

    It may be the most disturbing violence I have ever seen in a movie. So real, not cartoon violence but the kind that is really upsetting. There is something else that is very disturbing. There are a great number of racial and ethnic slurs that are screamed over and over again throughout the movie. Also, most of the female characters are portrayed as chattel or prostitutes. Some would say that the movie is only being honest. I think it is over wrought, exaggerated and repulsive, totaly repulsive.

    oramar, I 've been wanting to see that movie but I don't care for excessive disturbing violence either thanks for posting about it.

    :uhoh21: I love violent movies.

    Haven't seen it though. I'll probably wait until it comes out on DVD, as I do for most movies. We're not real movie theater people, unless it's something that's a big deal.

    I think I must be the only person on the planet with no urge to see that movie... I dunno what it is , just doesnt appeal to me in any way shape or form, I dont like excessive violence in movies either, just enough violence however is fine

    talk about embarrassment, I was at work on friday night and in our staff break room and the movie eyes wide shut was on tv, I hadnt seen it before and uhhhhhhh I happened to walk in during the whole naked people doin the nastay at that weird little themed party scene, cant believe the pervy nurses were like "oh leave it on, lets see where this is going" hahaha

    The TV advertising looked interesting. It just did not prepare a person for the violence. Like I said, probably will get an Oscar.
