    Really ticked off this isn't getting a proper theatrical release. It's technically out now but only showing in very limited screens in the US. Cineplex refuses to screen any movies that will be available for online streaming within a 90 day window. Really hoping one of the independent theaters like Globe or Plaza picks this up. Just brutal.

    The gap in negotiations was 60 days (for the theater chains) while Netflix wants 30 or 45 days (their choice). Doesn't matter if small chains pick it up (in Calgary), it won't get the full AV experience at a chain theatre anyways.

    From Netflix's perspective, they DGAF. The money is from the streaming subs, not deals with theatre chains. The only reason it's in independent theatres is for Oscar consideration, which requires an actual theatrical release, regardless how small.

    Negotiation might be shorter in the US but Cineplex in Canada wants 90 days.

    Either way it's a shame a Scorsese movie with all star cast can't get a proper theatrical release. I'd still prefer to see it at a small independent theater over all distractions at home.

    20 mins in, this is the best looking Netflix movie I’ve seen. If only the remastered goodfellas looked this good.

    I listen to Jim Norton and Sam Roberts on my drive in in the morning and Jim played a small role in it. There have been tons of callers calling in saying its an amazing movie. Its definitely on my watch list over the holidays.

    I think they can easily cut this movie down to under 3hrs. May be even 2.5hrs. Or just release as a mini-series of 3x 1hr episodes if he really want to keep everything in.

    Definitely a good movie to watch on the big screen. I wonder if it's really true.

    Deniro beating that guy outside the grocery store was hilarious. Poor old guy could barely fake the kicks. Should have used a stunt double.

    I have a problem with the deaging. He's supposed to be in his 30s/40s but his demeanor is someone in 70s.

    Looks young, moves old.

    That scene is a wide shot anyway, could be done with a stunt double with face map and it probably won't look as odd.

    I found a few scenes like this a bit jilting too, al pachino had some moments that really showed it.

    Seems pretty unlikely. You can look up a lot of information on this and the investigations around some of these murders.

    This movie was way too slow going. And so much filler in it, they could have easily cut it down to a regular 2-2.5 hour movie.
