    Do you watch good movies that depict high school kids with 30 somethings? No. If it’s well made, it’s well made, and the Irishman is just a well made movie.
    At one point Scorsese was sold that it was. You have a fake gangster with a book as the basis of a movie that the director bought/believed. The story is supposed to be an introspective look into this man's life. Over something that he didn't do. It is the most low stakes story.

    Imagine a story about King87 as a lawyer where I convince five justices to change their judicial viewpoint in totality with my brilliant lawyering...except not only did I not do that, but I never passed the bar and died as a paralegal.

    It kills the immersion. You can't walk it back. The immersion is killed with stupid CGI faces and stupid fight scenes that are part of the crux of a familial issue. "Wow, this is a great gangster movie," except it's not. It's a great movi about a guy who wrote a book about him cosplaying as a gangster. Most of the movie felt like it was about union politics and not a gangster flick.

    We never saw the family be close with one another. So how is the cutting off between the daughter and father hard hitting, other than the assumption that it should be?

    Fun fact, the old geezer who hated the Marvel Special Effects used those same ones, even some ones that marvel franchises created in his film...you know...to show us the 40/80 year old gangsters...

    I have never seen a movie tell less story with so much time.

    Was it based on a 'true story' of a real man whose life and pain from his 'real choices' stem from?

    That story was as real as Iron Man, used the same effects, had a worse script, worse direction, and ran about twice as long.

    Considering it's a fake story about a 'real gangster' I can honestly say Iron Man is as much of a gangster story as The Irishman.

    I also enjoy the Cranberries, so there's that...
    I even liked Mama Mia, here we go again (but not as much as the original movie).

    You've lived such a sheltered life.

    Actually if you think about it both Iron Man and The Irishman are modern day westerns.

    This wasn't a gangster film. That's the problem. It was a story about a guy who fantasized being a gangster, and union politics.

    The geezer is a disgrace.

    Maybe the real gangsters aren’t what we think they are in our mind...
