DeNiro is not worthy of my money any more.

De Niro was surprisingly good in Joker, wasn't phoning it in as he's done so over the last decade or so. On the basis of this, I am looking fwd to The Irishman.

It's become harder and harder to enjoy Hollywood productions that include De Niro types who lecture us about morality while at the same time behaving badly themselves and appearing in films that glorify violence and killing.

Where are the real class actors that don't insult 1/2 the movie goers that pay their earnings?

Who's DeNiro? I heard he's just a joke.

It's not becoming harder to enjoy the cinema if one has a genuine appreciation for the medium. De Niro has appeared in some of the greatest roles and films over the last 50 years, from Vito Corleone to Travis Bickle to Harry Tuttle.

The violence depicted in Scorsese films is rarely gratuitous, it is depicted as having consequences and frames protagonists in dubious morality. Unlike the many wars that are celebrated and justified, the violence in the films here are not glorified.

That's just my personal opinion about recent Hollywood productions. It's a little hard to see the character in the actors when the actors spend so much time belittling people like yourself and then behave terribly themselves.

I my opinion Hollywood has become worse than the churches of a generation ago. More self righteous, legalistic, moralistic and preachy. At least the churches give us schools, hospitals, shelters for the homeless and DV survivors, etc. Hollywood used to give us amazing films with supremely talented and classy actors. Now they make mostly garbage with trash actors who insult half thier audience.
