    Mixed reviews. Scorsese tries way too hard to make great movies, instead of just trying to make movies that people will enjoy. Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 67%, but Scorsese films are usually given undeserved ratings simply because they are Scorsese films. I've heard the score to the movie is AWFUL, too.

    I'll probably see it when it comes to DVD, but it doesn't sound like it's worth seeing in theaters.

    I saw it. It was quite good; you'll leave the theater having seen a completely different movie than what you expected. I highly recommend going to see this one.

    Don't check Wikipedia - big spoiler but no warning. I will still see it though.

    I've heard mixed reviews about Shutter Island. Mostly that folks are psyched up to see a scary movie and then let down. I'll wait for this one to come out on blue ray.

    Now, I did see The Wolfman last weekend.
    I loved it!

    It had a nice plot twist ... the acting was great ... the mood, the scenery, all great! It kept true to the original wolf-man which I had great appreciation for. I will add, it had sort of a Bram Stoker's Dracula flare to it, but not much. Still, I would recommend going to see it.

    ( AhhhhhhhWooooooooooooooooooooooooooo )
    The sound of the wolfman, howling at the moon!

    I haven't even seen Avatar much less Shutter Island.

    Leo DeCaprio seems to be going downhill. He's not as cute as he used to be and now that I think about it he's not that great of an actor. I think he's trying to be like Brad Pitt but he can't sell it.

    Zack Efron seems to be the new goldenboy in Hollywood these days.

    I agree Mudwhistle.

    I see DiCaprio as being type-cast in his role of Jack from Titanic. I feel that image has stayed with him. But hey ... that's just MY opinion. I'm sure others would disagree. Anyway, I've avoided just about all his movies since Titanic.
