    What's Eating Gilbert Grape: Hbo max, 8.2 /10
    1st time watching this. It's no wonder why Leo went from adopted Seaver to Stardom after this film. As for Gilbert, how you gonna be banging Mrs Betty while leaving Arnie in the car with no supervision. Time and place, breh. The run time went by quickly.

    I'm in an extreme camp for Leo, but I actually think his career was on a steady tack downward after that. I feel like that's the last time I was transported by his performance into a story, instead of saying, "oh, here's Leonardo DiCaprio, and he's really flexing those acting muscles today." There's tons of other good performances, I know.

    But I have the same kinda weird take about Daniel Day Lewis after he did Unbearable Lightness.

    There is truth to it. It's like when rappers blow up and become multimillionaires. Rapping about being broke doesn't hit the same.

    Bill the Butcher saved him in my eyes. I just wish Brendan Gleeson had killed him instead of the other way around.

    That's a good call on both counts.
    And I kind of liked Leo in Catch Me If You Can. A larger-than-life role kind of worked for him that time.

    That's a good flick. I used to call him Leonora Dicaprio but he's grown on me a bit. Wolf of Wall Street was pretty epic.

    While waiting for BCS finale on AMC+ been catching up on Creepshow. Pure 80's goodness and a great rack you got to see as a teen. Sadly, they took the tit portion out of the below vid.

    man, this dude Wes Anderson is weird. I pretty much hated all his movies except Fantastic Mr. Fox.

    I felt obligated to watch his corny ass films because he was from Austin.

    Wes is a Hollywood indie movie director darling. Golden Globes love him. Calling him a weirdo did make me laugh. :D

    all of his characters are all the same. awkward people who like to stare at things. actually, should team up with quentin tarantino to give his characters some color. imagine a wes movie with his characters cursing up a storm and dropping n-words

    I know critics love this dude. I just chalk it up to me not being insightful enough.

    9/10 because it's only 78 min and not longer
