An internet theory about the 3rd DC/CW show that sounds pretty plausible is that it will be "Flashpoint," a group of heroes dealing with the alternate timeline fallout caused in the Flash series. It would effectively be a short mid-season fill in much like Agent Carter was for SHIELD. This would explain how Caity Lotz would be back and why Captain Cold is part of the team despite being a villain (he was the hero Citizen Cold during Flashpoint).

Maps to the Stars



Mtts-new-poster-gallery

Directed by: David Cronenberg
Written by: David Cronenberg
Cast: Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, Sarah Gadon
Studio:
Genre: Horror, Independent
Official Site:
Plot: A girl with a secret throws a number of Hollywood players into chaos

Review:

So, the long lost hidden family secret.The aging starlet in her mother's shadow. A rising star already too egotistical to deal with. A new age guru who is mostly a hyporcrite. The limo driver who really wants to write and act. David Cronenberg parades a number of Hollywood satircal archetypes through a barrage of anti-Hollywood cliches. It is only his competence of tone and visuals that makes any of this worth watching. It is otherwise void of new ideas.

Wild Card



Wild-card-poster-debut

Directed by: Simon West
Written by: William Goldman
Cast: Jason Statham, Sofia Vergara, Milo Ventimiglia, Anne Heche, Max Casella, Hope Davis, Stanley Tucci
Studio: Lionsgate
Genre: Action, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: A security expert looks for his way out of Vegas

Review:

WIld Card is not what you think it is going to be. Yes, it is a Jason Statham cheapie action thriller with some very arobatic action scenes, but there is more to it. A very vague attempt to be something more.Something better.I can appreciate that. I really can. There is a lot of time between fight scenes that usually have Statham acting self-depricating about his own toughness, playing cards trying to make enough bank to make a break for it, taking a young millionaire who wants to toughen up under his wing. It is definitely one of Statham's better performances, requiring him to actually do some acting. The guy has the kind of screen presence where he can play a more emotionally complicated kind of tough guy than we are used to seeing in these kind of movies.

The Wolf of Wall Street



Wolf-of-wall-street-poster1

Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Written by: Terence Winter
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Kyle Chandler, Jean Dujardin, Jon Favreau, Matthew McConaughey, Margot Robbie
Studio: Paramount Pictures
Genre: Biography, Crime, Drama
Official Site:
Plot: Rise and fall of a wall street money man.

Review:

So many of Scorsese movies are about the rise and fall. Enter a confident go-getter who knows how to work the system.He climbs the ladder quick and starts cutting corners when he thinks he can get away with it until they hemorrage money and power at quicksand speed. DiCaprio plays his most over the top character yet, as does pretty much everyone involved in the movie, to a fault. It also helps make it all the more funny, the extra push After Hours was missing.

Hugo



Hugo-final-poster

Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Written by: John Logan (screenplay), Brian Selznick (book)
Cast: Chloe Moretz, Jude Law, Richard Griffiths, Emily Mortimer, Ray Winstone, Sacha Baron Cohen, Christopher Lee, Ben Kingsley, Asa Butterfield
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Adventure, Family
Official Site: www.hugomovie.com
Plot: An orphan living in a train station tries to finish his father's final project.

Review:

Scorsese? A PG rated movie? Really?

Well, guess what, it was awesome. Seriously. It is Scorsese's love letter to film, something to reinvigorate the cinephile cynics casting Ben Kingsley as legendary filmmaker, George Melies, now forced to sell mechanical trinkets in a train station store. It is a surprisingly adventurous family flick. Emotionally compelling and tastefully beautiful and so many things that family movies forget nowadays.

Shutter Island



Shutter-island-poster1

Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Written by: Laeta Kalogridis
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, Max Von Sydow, Emily Mortimer, Patricia Clarkson, John Carroll Lynch, Jackie Earle Haley
Studio: Paramount Pictures
Genre: Thriller
Official Site: www.shutterisland.com
Plot: A detective investigates a disappearance at a mental institution

Review:

I feel like after the dust settled and the Oscars were won, The Departed had a lot of detractors, many of whom seemed annoyed that it was Scorsese's most mainstream and by extension the most popular. Shutter Island is probably more deserving of the criticism that Scorsese phoning it in a bit and making something more traditional.Shutter Island was a fairly run of the mill thriller with the kind of twsit ending that is no longer very original anymore. The saving grace here though is Leonardo DiCaprio, who's slow descent into madness is fantastic and nuanced, plus one particular flashback being possibly one of the greatest scenes DiCaprio has ever delivered and an amazing final bit of dialog, both of which elevate it from what could have been a pretty uninspired flick.

The Departed



2006-departed-1

Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Written by: William Monahan
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, Mark Wahlberg, Martin Sheen, Ray Winstone, Vera Farmiga, Anthony Anderson, Alec Baldwin
Studio: Warner Bros
Genre: Thriller
Official Site: www.thedeparted.com
Plot: A cop undercover as a gangster. A gangster undercover as a cop.

Review:

A remake of the Japanese Infernal Affairs and partly inspired by real life Boston gangster, Whity Bulger. It stars an all-star cast (DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Mark Wahlberg, Alec Baldwin, Martin Sheen, and Jack Nicholson). The cast do some of their best work, dropping R's all over the place, in what Scorsese considers (probably before Shutter Island) to be his only movie with an actual story. It is true, I guess, and it is weird to think of it as a criticism or some kind or justification for why it isn't an instant Scorsese classic. But it kind of is an instanct classic. Or at least really good. Exceptionally thrilling, occasionally funny, with plenty of compelling performances to go around.

Studio: Warner Bros
Genre: Biography, Drama
Official Site: www.aviatormovie.com
Plot: The life of Howard Hughes

Review:

DiCaprio and Scorsese's second outing was much better than their first attempt. Telling the story of Howard Hughes, millionaire/engineer/filmmaker/you guessed it, aviator. Hughes was known publcily for being an adventurer. Stan Lee has gone on record saying that Tony Stark was originally inspired by the man, but Scorsese's historical character piece pulls back the curtain. He paints Hughes as an unstable and psychologically tortured individual with a parade of supporting actors playing actors.

Gangs Of New York



2002-gangs_of_new_york-4

Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Written by: Martin Scorsese, Jay Cocks, Steven Zaillian
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, Liam Neeson, Cameron Diaz, Pete Postlethwaite, Henry Thomas
Studio: Miramax Films
Genre: Crime, Drama
Official Site: gangsofnewyork.com
Plot: An Irish man sets out for vengeance against the man who killed his father.

Review:

This gangland epic takes on a fantasy sword-and-sandal like quality in the New York of the 1860s. Leonardo DiCaprio begins his his partnership with Scorsese playing the son of an Irish immigrant who dared to stand up against neighborhood tough guy, Bill the Butcher (played by an awesomely theatrical Daniel Day-Lewis). 20 years after the death of his father, DiCaprio has returned to get vengeance on Bill, first by infiltrating his organization and then starting a rebellion against him. The production values are high and impressive, but besides Day-Lewis' turn, the performances are pretty lacking. All these details weigh down Scorsese's bigger picture the coming-of-age growing pains of America's greatest city, New York.

Studio: Paramount Pictures
Genre: Drama
Official Site:
Plot: A graveyard shift EMTsuffering from insomnia is haunted by the ones he couldn't save

Review:

A Scorsese greatest hits. A Taxi Driver spiral into madness. An After Hours madcap adventure. An insightful Goodfellas voiceover. A sly injection of dark humor a la King of Comedy. A Mean Streets/Who's That Knocking at My Door guilt ridden thematic angle. It probably shouldn't work as well as it does (especially since there is a sneaking suspicion of Scoresese aping Tarantino) and objectively it might not be, but I totally dig it.

Plot: The life story of the 14th Dalai Lama

Review:

NOt going to lie. When I heard the premise, I thought this doesn't sound super riveting. But I was wrong. This was pretty damn good, full of actors I have never seen before (apparently many are real relatives of the Dalai Lama). It lacks a lot of mysticism, insight, and nonconventional dream-like scenarios, but that is sort of what makes it great. The instinct would be to jump on those things, but by ignoring them and sticking more to the conventional and routine actually makes it more special. The simplicity and politics behind the Dalai Lama just being nice are more fascinating than you could think possible.

Casino



1995-casino-poster1

Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Written by: Nicholas Pileggi
Cast: Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone, Joe Pesci, Don Rickles, Kevn Pollak, James Woods, Alan King
Studio: Universal Pictures
Genre: Crime, Drama
Official Site:
Plot: The rise and fall of the mafia's version of Las Vegas.

Review:

I'm going to break a few hearts with this one. I'm not a big fan of this movie. DeNiro seems like he is sleepwalking though the movie, while Pesci takes his Goodfellas characters and revs him up to full annoying douche mode. AS we meet these gangsters they are pretty much already stabbing each other in the back fighting over the power and prominence that they have already collected. Vegas was an epilogue, a post script, and at this point I am already rooting for their downfall, so it doesn't really feel that tragic. It is still good though, mainly because it is Scorsese and he really knows how to put a movie together.

Plus it is so annoyingly long.

The Age of Innocence

Studio: Columbia
Genre: Period, Drama
Official Site:
Plot: An upper crust gentlement in 19th century New York struggles with his desires and the high scoiety expectations.

Review:

Lies. Sex. Guilt. The Scorsese checklist is there, but it is yet another stinker from Marty. Armed with one of the finest actors possibly ever, Daniel Day-Lewis, Scorsese delivers a long, plodding melodrama overflowing with verbose Olde English stle dialog that just seems to sap all the emotion out of every scene. There is also literally no action what to speak of. Not explosions and car chases, l;iterally nothing but people talking about the things they want to do, wish they could do, but can't do unless they upset the hoighty toighty bullshitty lifestyle of the Buzzkillingtons. I hate this movie.

Cape Fear

Studio: Universal
Genre: Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: A convicted rapist gets out of prison and torments his court appointed lawyer for not doing more during his case.

Review:

This is a rare misstep for Martin Scorsese. Robert DeNiro does a psychotic Foghorn Leghorn impression while Nick Nolte and Jessica Lange sort of phone it in. It is probably one of Scorsese's more mainstream movies, and it shows. He is sort of going by the numbers thriller with only a single moment of brilliance: a scene scripted as a violent one morphed into a creepy slow-burn conversation between DeNiro's convict posing as a teacher and Nolte's teenaged daughter (played by Juliette Lewis).

Goodfellas



1990-goodfellas-poster1

Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Written by: Nicholas Pileggi, Martin Scorsese
Cast: Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci, Lorraine Bracco
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Biography, Crime, Drama
Official Site:
Plot: The rise and fall of Henry Hill

Review:

Goodfellas might very well be Scorsese's greatest all-around movie. Lacks the compelling performances of Raging Bull and the philosophical depth of Taxi Driver, but it is a near perfectly assembled movie. It really takes every lesson Scorsese has learned on his way to a filmmaking legend and puts it on display. The way MeanStreets was just a better version of Who's Knocking at My Door, Goodfellas is a better version of Mean Streets, leaving the streets for criminal-empire-land. It stars Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci as confident, borderline psychotic gangsters, but the lead this time goes to Ray Liotta, a great portrayal of a gang soldier's rise to mastermind and fall from grace proving wrong anyone who says narration in cinema is lazy.

The Last Temptation of Christ



Last-temptation-poster

Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Written by: Paul Schrader
Cast: Willem Dafoe, Harvey Keitel, Paul Greco, Steve Shill
Studio: Universal
Genre: Drama
Official Site:
Plot: Jesus struggles with his inherent human doubt in being the messiah

Review:

Scorsese's work has always been marked at least mariginally by Catholic doubt. As a filmmaker and explorer of the human condition, it is no surprise that he would be the one to actually portray Jesus as an actual person. Afterall that is kind of the point, that he was human, making his sacrifice all the more important. Dafoe pulls off the dichotomy of being human as well as something more with brilliant nuance. The movie is a little long and makes weird stylistic choices (like giving all the disciples New York accents, since Scorsese saw them as the original street toughs), but Dafoe is on all cylinders and really can't be stopped.

The Color of Money



1986-the-color-of-money-poster1

Written by: Richard Price
Cast: Paul Newman, Tom Cruise, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Helen Shaver
Studio: Buena Vista
Genre: Drama
Official Site:
Plot: An aging pool hustler turns financial backer for a young hot shot

Review:

It goes without saying that The Color of Money is no Hustler (the movie for which it is a sequel to). That isn't even close to being a criticism though. Just a unviersal truth. Scorsese still shakes the cobwebs off Fast Eddie for Paul Newman to return. Newman is in top form, as charismatic as ever, fighting for attention from a scene-stealing TomCruise. Luckily (for Newman, not us),Cruise's scene-stealing is the annoying showboaty kind where you are baffled by his overacting rather than drawn to his presence of ability to compel.

After Hours

Cast: Griffin Dunne, Rosanna Arquette, Verna Bloom, Tommy Chong
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Comedy, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: An office drone's attempt at a night on the town turns nightmarish

Review:

After King of Comedy, Scorsese must have wanted to take on a broader comedy. Except After Hours isn't simply a broad comedy, it is a wild madcap adventure through a version of New York that could have been navigated by Travis Bickle or John Boy. It is full of femme fatales, eccentric artists, and New Yorkers prone to violent outburts. Thanks to Griffin Dunne's deadpan-driven-manic yuppie, Paul Hackett, it is more comic (well, tragicomic) than the bleakness of Taxi Driver and Meant Streets. I just wish Scorsese would commit to the comedy 100%. There is a slowness (patented Scorsese epic drama slowness) that inhibits where it usually elevates (at least in Scorsese's pictures).

Cast: Robert De Niro, Jerry Lewis, Diahnne Abbott, Sandra Bernhard
Studio: Fox
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Official Site:
Plot: An aspiring comedian kidnaps a famous talk show host in order to get his big break.

Review:

Unlike the more overt dangerous characters that DeNiro plays, he proves his range with the awkward, geeky, pathetically and darkly comedic Rupert Pupkin. Possibly one of my favorite characters from Scorsese's stable, paired with a comic legend, Jerry Lewis, as the celebrity talk show host, playing a convincing straight man. The only thing that makes it even more disturbing that DeNiro (and his fandom colleagues) creepiness, is the movie's very genuine ability to crack you up. Every chuckle is followed up with an immediate feeling of shame and unease. The whole thing ultimately works as a before its time cutthroat cultural satire

Studio: MGM
Genre: Biography, Drama
Official Site:
Plot: Rise and fall of boxer, Jake LaMotta

Review:

Scorsese and DeNiro reteam for this black and white epic character piece about tragic boxing hero, Jake LaMotta. DeNiro brings raw energy and nuance to a self-destructive asshole. Joined by Joe Pesci and Cathy Moriarty, both of whom hold their own against DeNiro's brutal tour de force, Scorsese challenges the audience with the unsympathetic walking the fine line between human and animal, a man expected to be able to turn off his brutality when not in the ring, even though that is the only time anyone gives a shit. Often considered Scorsese and DeNiro's finest moment, its occasional episodic structure (an aspect that would follow Scorsese all his career) stops it from being his absolute best.

Plot: A Vietnam vet spirals into madness while working the night shift

Review:

Robert DeNiro gives his finest performance as God's lonely man, Travis Bickle, a Vietnam war vet actively struggling with his own existent. Returning to a country that has essentially lost its innocence (no longer just a Rockwell painting), Bickle doesn't like what he sees.He tries to live a normal life (gets a job, finds a girl), but his environment doesn't want him to succeed. His black-and-white morality betrays him, and he is forced to face the most extreme of human urges. Mixed with a noir-like score and Scorsese's unique mix of reverence and scorn for the mean streets of New York, it is a near perfect movie.
