Will it ever be old and tired?

The rags to illegal riches to rags/jail/death story?

Seen it plenty of times before, over and over again, I might say.

How long has it been since Leonardo DiCaprio has done a movie without affecting an accent? Titanic? I really can't remember.

I think Inception is the only one since Titanic. I enjoy his movies, but the forced/unnatural accents are distracting.

Right there with ya. I like him too, and this looks like a good movie. But Shutter Island, J. Edgar, Great Gatsby... all funny accents. I just wonder why he doesn't try doing a character without an accent for a change. To me, it hints of insecurity. It's a very actorly thing for to do, and he seems better and smarter than that. (I'd say the best actors do the least "actorly" things, and just be natural.) I'd love to see him just be himself in a movie and forget about the diction.

I get the sense he is fishing for an Oscar. I still name 'This Boy's Life' (1993) as my favorite performance.

Read the book, author sounds like Tucker Max after passing the Series 7. Entertaining but felt nonsensical.

DiCaprio, looking constipated, in yet another Scorsese movie?


//When will this unholy alliance end?

DiCaprio id the reason Scorsese is allowed to keep making movies.  He signs on and the studio green-lights the picture.

/sad but true
//Think that there should be a fund for certain directors, to make whatever they want

Eastwood is the last director to have that deal, but that is because his budgets rarely ever top $35 million.

Scorsese would likely have a similar deal, except that he has sometimes expensive and experimental tastes. Face it, a $100 million three hour biopic on Howard Hughes, while a good movie, is a pretty tough sell any way you slice it.

I love his movies, but I agree sometimes his accent feels forced.   Nothing more than Blood Diamond (which is one of my favorite movies he is in)

I like that movie too and had a hard time getting past the accent. But I find this YouTuber comment on that clip interesting:

"Brilliant. What other actor would make the investment to master West African pidgin English? And with a perfect West African accent too. He should have gotten an Oscar for this role."

I can't say I'm an expert on West African pidgin English, so maybe the accent was well done after all.
