    It was very good - for about 2 1/2 hours. Its too long at 3 1/2 hours and the last hour really dragged with very little going on.

    OK, my wife had read about how good it was supposed to be, so we actually watched the first half hour before we got bored and watched some very enjoyable Netflix Comedy Specials.

    I suspect that says more about us than how good or bad the movie is.

    First half hour is better than the last half hour

    I lasted 1 and a half hours. Old men behaving badly. I'll take Coppola's view of gangsters any day. Nothing new from DeNiro and Pacino, and Pesci tones it down. Basically it was a slow drag.

    I recommend Midway. The pilots are front and center and the CGI impressive.
    Have also seen: Judy, a probable Oscar for Rene.
    Parasite: A South Korean dramedy that might get foreign oscar.
    Harriet: Interesting if overly dramatized.
    The Report (Amazon): Basically a docudrama about Guantanamo torture cover up. Decent.

    Knives Out is worth watching also. Interesting to hear Daniel Craig with a Southern Drawl.

    Yeah, but he didn't fool this KY/NC boy. Pretty good accent but there's just some subtlety that outs him. Just like I might not be able to spot a fake Southie accent but a native Bostonian could. A really good movie, though.

    My wife, a true Southern Belle, was appalled by it. Even I, a Connecticut Yankee, but who has spent 40+ years in the Belly of the Beast, thought it was comical.

    Tom Hanks, in The Green Mile, was closer to the mark but still not there. Craig said he tried to model his drawl after Shelby Foote's.
