So i decided to watch the Irishman for the 3rd time to see if i can appreciate it more, but this time, i watched it like a tv show, 6 episodes at around 20-30 mins each. Immedietly enjoyed it much more. But then i found myself watching The Wolf of Wall Street in 1 take for the millionth time and that movie just flies by everytime. I could say the same for The Departed. I can take a whole day enjoying Lawrence of Arabia but i need a few more to get through Dr. Zhivago(still a tremendous flick).
Having said that, whats a a movie you like that just seems to take forver to get through and you sometimes struggle, and whats a long movie (lets say minimum 150 mins length) that its on and BAM! your hooked until the end. Lets get the obvious out of the way and say besides Goodfellas.
I liked the Irishman but 3 times? Wow.
Anyway, for the first question, GANGS OF NEW YORK. Each time I promise myself I’ll make it through without falling asleep and each time I fail.
As for the other way, Dances with Wolves. Extended version even! It’s my happy place movie. That or Shawshank, but duh.
