As you know, I reblogged a post from another blogger about Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio teaming up for another movie in the works. This will be number FIVE! The two are a hot item, so I coined their name: Scorcaprio!

I thought I’d take this as an opportunity to share their other movies with my followers and review them. Have you seen all of them? Which ones did you especially enjoy? Which ones have you not seen yet? Why not? I liked each one in their own special way.

  1. Gangs of New York (2002) – Nominated for ten Oscars, this enthralling, disturbing and violent film is worth watching for the acting, especially Daniel Day-Lewis as the villain, but also for DiCaprio. Scorsese does an excellent job portraying life as it was in New York in 1862. [R]
  2. The Aviator (2004) – Nominated for 11 Oscars & won 5 of them, the acting is phenomenal in this tragic portrayal of the fascinating madman, genius and aviation pioneer Howard Hughes life. Cate Blanchett’s performance as Katherine Hepburn was also outstanding [PG-13]
  3. The Departed (2006) – This extremely violent film based on a Hong Kong movie won four Oscars including Best Picture and Best Director and many say is Scorsese’s best movie since Goodfellas. The all-star cast of DiCaprio, Damon, Nicholson, Baldwin, Wahlberg, every single role is memorable, their lines are etched into my memory! [R]
  4. Shutter Island (2010) This psychological thriller is a wild rollercoaster ride and has crazy plot twists and turns; a movie like a jigsaw puzzle that you will need to put your full attention to, one of the best of 2010. [R]
  5. Adaptation of The Wolf of Wall Street from Jordan Belfort’s 2007 memoir about his experiences making millions in the stock market only to wind up in jail for fraud and money laundering. Scheduled to be released in 2013.
