I saw it and what made the movie for me was Daniel Day-Lewis. If Nicholson gets the Oscar over him I will scream!

Leo's accent bothered me. It was decent when he was doing dialogue, but during the voice overs he sometimes had virtually no accent at all. Honestly, it didn't bug me that much and not that I'd really know since, well, I'm not Irish, but I think it could have been better.

It just opened in a theatre to the north of where I live, so that means sometime in the next month I should get to see it. Blood and all I'm looking forward to it. I love Daniel Day Lewis' work and it sounds as though he's done it again. He's up for an Academy Award for the role? I don't suppose I can vote, but I'll give praying a go. He's gives his all to the craft, he deserves it, although Nicholson is Hollywood royalty, I wonder what his role was like?
DDL predicted that Irish people would not like the movie ( a bit tongue-in-cheek maybe) but I don't think he thought it was because of the accents.
And the Oscar goes to......oh wouldn't it be loverly...

Teehee, about making your friends stay during the credits. My family don't like the way I do that, but I'm always interested in who helped make a movie I have just enjoyed. I even embarrass them further sometimes...by applauding someone's name who's work I particularly enjoyed. The caterer's usally have witty business names , I like to know who the horsemaster's were etc. and on a screen that big, I can actually read them. So there is some quite good music as well? What a bon-us!! I'm looking forward to this , immensely.
Woops a daisy....long post..again! but jolly gingoes, it's a long time between Daniel Day-Lewis movies.

www.rollingstone.com has/had an interview with day-lewis up on the site...i was told about this a few days ago, i tried posting it in a couple threads that you had been in, but i don't know if you read those again...

i went to see the movie by myself both times, the second time i got kicked out for staying and waiting THTBA to end...

well leo's accent wasn't really too good, but i think they covered that basis with the "even though hellgate had muddled my accent, the natives still couldn't tell the difference" line in the begining...

i think jack will get the oscar just based on he the fact that he always does... but daniel day-lewis deserves it... i got gangs of new york downloaded on my computer... pretty good quality too...

see...

I felt the movie as a whole was uninspiring. Although Lewis's performance is worth the price of admission. He was outstanding!It's a shame IMO that the movie wasn't better than it was. They had the right idea, but the execution was wrong, not to mention the needless romance between Leonardo and Diaz. Why does every movie have to have a love scene???

every movie has to have a love scene so they can try to put in the romance for the few who actually like that stuff and end up going to this kind of movie

i could have done without that

but it's still my favourite movie...
