The Irishman

Anybody watched it yet? It's pretty good, in my opinion.

There's a round table sort of conversation after the movie, so that's another half hour Netflix is asking you to sacrifice, but it's basically like binge-watching a whole Netflix season in a single setting, to me.

I've never had the mental stamina to do that. I'd have to watch this in chunks.

I have the movie on my 'list' to watch over my vacation. How long is it?

I'm just glad I didn't have to watch this in a cinema. I had to take breaks to pee, refill my mug, stuff like that all as well.

I think I finished it in 4.5 hours, then a couple of hours later watched the round table thing (which is actually pretty boring).

I thought it was great. Didn't feel like 3.5 hours at all. Only paused once really almost exactly halfway to pee and that was it. 

I'm looking forward to watching it again.

I liked it but did feel it was overly long.  30 minutes could easily have been cut with little to nothing lost.

For me, there's very, very little I would cut. I really like it a lot because it's not the crazy glorification of gangsterism of Scorcese's old films. 

It probably doesn't feel that long for me also when you consider that both Goodfellas and Casino were 2 and a half hours as well, not to mention Silence which was also around that, this one feels like that as well.

I watched it in the cinema and thought it was very good. For me, it felt it's length, I think it could've been streamlined a little. I think I'd enjoy it even more on a re-watch, especially because I'd have a better understanding of what the pace is going to be like. It's just so much fun to watch those actors bounce off of each either, Pesci is particularly brilliant. 

I'm glad Scorsese got to make the film he wanted to make in the manner he wanted to make it, but I don't think it's one of his best films. But obviously he set the bar pretty high.

I thought it was phenomenal. I think you could make it much shorter but I wouldn't particularly want to.

Mostly I just felt the driving and smoke breaks were too much.  A few advanced the story but most just included voice overs that could've been added in another spot

      Hello once again EWB Universe. Sorry for the delay for this months update, Ive been busy with a business trip for work and the doctors appointments for the little Paige Turner. Ive added quite a few workers in this update (that I will post below). The biggest changes for this update are that Ive changed EVOLVE back to WWN and put EVOLVE and FIP as roster splits. Instead of adding in Lucha Libre Elite, I added it in as a roster split for CMLL. Let me know what you think with questions and comments below. I am also working on releasing a logo and banner pack very soon, so look out for that.
      and as always,
      Happy Playing.
