Who is going to see this movie starring Kate Winslet & Leonardo DiCaprio? Movie Popcorn



They are giving it good reviews. I will definitely go and see it! Some are comparing it to "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?", which starred Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
It's the type of movie that is good, but at the same time, it WEARS YOU OUT! Because of the fighting and problems between the husband and wife.
Here is a scene from that movie:

Whoa, that's an intense preview. I watched the Golden Globes and decided right then and there I am SO going to see this movie! Too bad we don't live closer together, Carol, we could see it together! :peace: LOL, I don't think there's a single soul I know that's going to want to see something this dramatic. I love angst though, what can I say. And I just HAVE to see Kate & Leo together. I am very disappointed (even though I haven't seen the movie) that Leo didn't get an Oscar nomination for this. Kate was nominated as lead actress for her other movie but not this one. I just want to see Leo win an Oscar so badly...I've seen just about every movie he's done now. He is totally deserving IMHO....I totally think he was robbed for Titanic. I mean, could anyone else have possibly played Jack like him????

Me too Amy! I started watching Leo since his days on Growing Pains lol

His acting was great on "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" and "Basketball Diaries" among other movies he has done. I really hope he gets an award soon!



From an article regarding the Golden Globes:
"How did some dude's mediocre Richard Nixon impression beat out Leonardo DiCaprio's acting clinic in Revolutionary Road? We can understand that voters might be jaded by the fact that DiCaprio always turns in a solid performance, but overlooking his measured, understated turn in tandem with Kate Winslet is almost a crime."

He wasn't even nominated for the Oscars Blue

Sorry I haven't replied to this Carol---I just spotted it! Yep, I've been watching Leo since Growing Pains too. Oh, he was amazing in What's Eating Gilbert Grape, wasn't he? I agree with this person who wrote that article, for sure. It IS almost a crime that he never gets recognized. And this latest thing with the Oscars is just so upsetting. Ugh.

Just look at that chemistry in that picture you posted. Wow. Pretty awesome couple! (or at least they would be, if she wasn't married to someone else. batEyes ).
