Deep down, I love the movie I wanted it to be after those three thrilling days on the Hollywood Blvd set last year.

I realize now that probably doomed the film for me.   It could never be as good as I wanted it to be--as I was convinced it could be. 
Or...maybe if Sally was still with us...

It's my sacred duty to report a third viewing.  (Hope springs eternal.) 

Alas.

Even the half hour of extra material is boring.

There's an extended scene with Charlie that had me shaking my head.  An improvised (?) scene between Rick and Wanamaker that just lays there and goes on forever.

Well, then, something positive has come from my combined 8 hour investment in watching this film.  :wink:

Downloaded this the other night, was only gonna watch the first fifteen minutes, ended up watching the whole thing. Impossible to turn off. Wilberfan, you've done your best, but you and this film are just oil and water apparently. And there's nothing wrong with that.

I've been wondering why I put myself thru that again--and I remembered I wanted to see if it played any better with the advertised "20 add'l minutes".  The version I saw was the exact running time of the original, so forked again. 

As long as we're on the subject (unless it belongs elsewhere), have any of you ever tried this hard to like a film?  What was the film?

On the plus side, with the digital release, I now get to savor this shot of me hiding during a take.

had you read eward’s description of the additional material? it’s familiar for people who have seen it at new bev, and disconnected to the narrative as you now know

i have never tried to like a movie. i have rewatched movies hoping to discover another perspective. i think it’s three times i’ve watched Looper, which movie i consider a load of horseshit each time

Frailty (2001), which I've watched twice after I fell asleep the first time. Still don't remember, like, any of it. But my father and some horrorheads I know dig it, and it's nearly southern-gothic so... I already intend on trying again...

I watched that for the first time not too long ago I think after Bill Paxton died because I'd heard for years how good it was and I must say...no sir, I didn't like it.

I gave this two shots (so far). The first time I was truly underwhelmed for reasons other have exposed here before me. Mainly, I felt the film dragged and never really took off. Scenes were good by themselves, some of them great, but the energy kept escaping because everything was taking forever. DiCaprio en Pitt are terrific, the film has some great sequences, a lot to chew on, but I was impatient during most of it.

Still, I went back a week later, this time to an IMAX screening, and sure enough, I quickly realized that on that first showing I had been scammed. There was NO VOLUME at my first screening. At least the speakers weren't properly calibrated. Weird that I didn't notice, as I tend to be that asshole who gets up 20 seconds into the movie to tell an employee to crank the volume up. But  this time, I guess it was loud enough but not correctly so. With the IMAX, I could feel the movie I was really supposed to see all along, and everything was way better.  But still...

Spoiler: ShowHide
 ... around the first sequence of DiCaprio acting within the tv show things started to drag again. I don't understand why that sequence takes so long. I mean the fictional scene, before he forgets his lines. It just goes on and on for no good reason.


I'll give it a third go soon, and hopefully I will see the perfect masterpiece everyone else is, although I've had the same feeling of unnecessary dragging on from Tarantino's films ever since Django Unchained.
